With a bright sun streaming in on the warm breakfast room, slicing though dark clouds outside, talk of cruelty and torture and revolution seemed far removed. The three Romanian athletes were laughing at their ability to laugh, to find humor and hope in their experiences during their country's violent 11-day revolution that ended a day after Christmas.

Frank Reich, a backup to Buffalo Bill quarterback Jim Kelly for more than a decade, finally got his chance to be a starter Monday by signing with the Carolina Panthers. "A big factor in my coming here was the opportunity to play," Reich, an unrestricted free agent, said after signing a one-year deal with the expansion team. The Panthers also acquired quarterbacks Jack Trudeau and Doug Pederson through the veteran allocation draft.

PattiSue Plumer called it an old-fashioned indoor mile. She also referred to it as a mess. Same thing. It started too fast. Not the pace. The race. Plumer said the gun went off before any of the runners were ready, sending them off pushing, shoving and cursing. Then, the race was too slow. Plumer said she had been told before the race that Romanian Violeta Beclea would be the pacemaker.

J.L. Lewis, a working club pro last year who never finished better than 28th in a PGA tournament, shot an eight-under-par 64 Thursday in New Orleans to take the first-round lead at the rain-soaked Freeport-McMoRan Golf Classic. Four inches of rain had hit the course in the preceding 24 hours, and a flood that had just receded left bunkers flooded and dead fish on the fairways.

Marla Runyan's phone hasn't really been ringing nonstop since she qualified for the Olympics in July. It just seems that way to the 1987 graduate of Camarillo High, who became the first legally blind athlete to make the U.S. Olympic team when she finished third in the women's 1,500-meter run in the track and field trials at Cal State Sacramento. "You have no idea," Runyan said of the interview requests. "I'm really thankful for my agent, Ray Flynn. He's handled a lot of it for me."

To have traveled thousands of miles, lived through a revolution, and be undone by a pair of shoes and a piece of wood. That was the result of Paula Ivan's attempt to break the world indoor mile record Friday night at the Sunkist Invitational track meet. Call it equipment failure. Call it hard knocks on wood. By any term, Ivan's failure to finish the race in which $100,000 was offered for the record, was disappointing. In keeping with the entire evening.
