Like elephants on parade, Army's offensive linemen moved in tandem under the watchful eyes of the brigade of midshipmen during a 34-6 defeat by Navy in Philadelphia last Saturday. The loss put Army's record at 0-13, a major-college record for futility.
In the serene setting of the Royal Albert Hall in London, John McEnroe served to Michael Stich in a senior event last Saturday. McEnroe won. Bravo.
Finally, a book about Muhammad Ali that's big enough to encompass his legend—or almost. GOAT, to be released next spring by the German publisher Taschen, is a heavyweight in every sense: 800 pages of photos (excerpted on these pages), essays and graphic artwork in a colossal 20-inch-square format, tipping the scales at 75 pounds. The title, an acronym for Greatest of All Time, also applies (for sports books at least) to the $3,000 price. But, hey, all 10,000 copies were signed by the Champ.
