Son Keith, six when Dad played in Super Bowl XX, is an Eagles LB, making Adams family the fifth to have father-son combo in game. In Oklahoma, Angela Ruggiero (above) became first woman nongoalie to play men's pro hockey, as defenseman for CHL's Tulsa Oilers--while brother Bill tended net.
Akron QB had super week of NFL auditions leading to Senior Bowl--scouts compared him with Brett Favre--then won game's MVP to zip up wish lists of teams looking for next MAC star (see: Byron Leftwich, Ben Roethlisberger). Raiders QB coach Steve Sarkisian: "He really showed a big-time ability."

Check out those Terps! Upsets of No. 2 Blue Devils at Duke and No. 22 Georgia Tech had fans dancing to a Nik Caner-Medley (left) as team climbed into Top 25. And good news at Inner Harbor: the O's landed Sammy Sosa, who may soon club homer number 600 out of slugger-friendly Camden Yards.
