LANCE ARMSTRONG: Once again, the mountain man seems headed for the Tour de France title.
BETH BAUER: The former Bloomingdale High golfer had her best LPGA finish ever, losing by a nose at the Jamie Farr Classic.
SHIGEKI MARUYAMA: Nobody seems to enjoy playing golf more, or to realize that it's just a game as much. He's all smiles, hamming it up for the crowd whether he makes birdie or bogey.
TOM HICKS: The Texas owner -- that would be the holy-cow-we-paid-$252-million-for-A-Rod-and-are-still-in-last-place Rangers -- says baseball is in need of an economic overhaul. Doesn't this sound like a cheesy tent-revival meeting: "I can't help myself. Please, save me from myself." And the owners wonder why no one trusts them.
ALLEN IVERSON: Hosting a party on the eve of surrender to police is bad form.
COLIN MONTGOMERIE: He has had poor receptions in the United States because of his dour behavior. Now he's cussing out his fellow Scots after the first round of the British Open. He was all smiles the next day after shooting 64, but the real Monty had shown through.
