HOUSTON -- While we digest the status of Mike Vick with his battered ribs and wonder if he'll ever play a full season of football again (he's played exactly one 16-game regular season), let's get updated on one team that's been very quiet in the first month of summer camp.
There are the staunch supporters of Adrien Broner, the fans and pundits who believe the 22-year-old super featherweight is the next big thing. They point to his unmistakable power, blurring speed and bubbling charisma to support the argument that Broner (23-0) is next in line for Floyd Mayweather's throne.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- We in boxing bellyache all the time about fighters who duck dangerous opponents, refuse to take chances and turn prizefights into glorified wrestling matches. Carl Froch, the reigning WBC super middleweight champion, is none of those things -- yet he's not very popular.

Every Tuesday I take my daughter for skating lessons and feel a chill that cannot entirely be explained by the refrigerated air of our suburban rink. When I join her on the ice, I feel six inches taller, which is four inches more than the CCMs on my feet can account for. Putting on hockey skates for the first time in years, I'm learning a few skating lessons of my own, which I wouldn't have thought possible after a decade as a hockey exile.

If you believe what the folks at Facebook have been telling the press, there's a lot in the new movie, "The Social Network" that's just plain fiction -- especially about the company's co-creator and chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg. Aaron Sorkin, the screenwriter, has acknowledged he aimed for "fidelity." But the fidelity was to "storytelling," not to truth.The movie itself ends with a disclaimer that some material in it is invented -- as in "not true." There clearly are specific scenes that didn't happen in real life and some of them -- like Zuckerberg having sex in a bathroom with an underage woman -- are not kind. Overall, by most accounts, he comes across as a jerk.

What a muddled mess the heavyweight division has become. Four recognized titles. Five, if you count Ring Magazine. Champions. Champions in Recess. Champions Emeritus.

There is a 10-foot SAINTS EDGE sign unfurled on the second floor of the Conrad Indianapolis Hotel -- the Saints' headquarters for Week 1 of the NFL season after the team was forced to relocate because of Hurricane Gustav. That's coach Sean Payton's theme for the year; everything the Saints do, they're doing to get an edge on the competition this year. And in a strange, it-can-only-happen-in-sports kind of way, migrating 820 miles north to make final preparations for the season might actually give the Saints an advantage heading into Sunday's season-opener with the visiting Bucs.
