Achievement should be focal point

No one likes stories without happy endings.The dragon should be slain every time, the damsel should never go without rescue, and Cinderella should always land her prince. Unless of course it's NCAA basketball; then Cinderella rarely leaves smiling.

America may not like sad conclusions, but college hoops enthusiasts everywhere should learn not to bemoan a mid-major's eventual season's end, but to applaud the achievements of a team that no one expected to contend.

Commentary: Valley Ranch too small for Terrell Owens’ ego

And just when we thought the Dallas Cowboys might be getting better. After the 2005 season's dynamite rookie draft, strong free-agent signings and signs of a decent run at the playoffs, America's team was poised to once again topple the NFC East and reclaim the championships of the glory days.

Point: Bonds’ steroid use not enough to overshadow early successes

At this point, it's pretty much anything under the sun that can fit in a syringe.Just after the nationwide buzz about Bonds' grand jury testimony regarding his alleged steroid abuse was starting to settle down, two San Francisco Chronicle reporters relit the fuse on the steroids powder keg by releasing parts of their soon-to-be published book "Game of Shadows" to Sports Illustrated.

The Horned Frogs continued to utilize home-advantage Wednesday, beating Oklahoma 7-0 and extending their home-winning record to 4-0.TCU (6-3) controlled almost every match, and lost only one set to the Sooners (4-5) all day. Head coach Dave Borelli said despite the Frogs' obvious skill advantage, he was pleased with the squad's effort.
