Vladimir Guerrero rejected a three-year contract offer from the Mets, who were told the free-agent outfielder has decided to sign with another team. Mets general manager Jim Duquette said Saturday night he didn't know which team Guerrero has committed to. But Duquette said he was informed by Guerrero's agent, Arn Tellem, that the former Expos star would sign a multiyear deal. The Orioles are thought to have offered Guerrero at least $65 million over five years. It was unclear which other teams were still pursuing Guerrero.
UNLV's Larry Croom scored two touchdowns, and UCLA linebacker Brandon Chillar returned an interception 56 yards for a score in the West's 28-7 victory in the East-West Shrine game on Saturday. Boise State's Ryan Dinwiddie, the most efficient passer in NCAA history, passed for 109 yards and a touchdown. He was named the outstanding offensive player in the 79th edition of the annual all-star game featuring top college seniors from across the nation.
The rivals come and go, and so do the years. The only constant is Michelle Kwan and her brilliance on the ice. The "old lady" of figure skating taught her latest challengers a thing or two, winning her eighth national title and record seventh in a row with a style, grace and determination that no one can match. And she did it with a pile of perfect 6.0s. Seven of them for artistry as she swept the nine-judge panel. She now has 35 perfect marks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, but they still leave her speechless. When the marks flashed on the scoreboard, her mouth dropped open and she buried her face in coach Rafael Arutunian's shoulder as the audience roared.
