Tour de Lance

Stage 19 of the 2004 Tour de France was considered to be a stage which could determine the winner. But that will apparently not be the case, as it would take a major spill or miscue on the part of Lance Armstrong to prevent him from winning a record 6th consecutive Tour de France. Steve Madden, Bicycling Magazine's Editor in Chief, joins us from Paris.

The Olympic Money Trail

This month's Olympic trials in swimming, gymnastics, and track and field determined who would sport the red, white and blue in Athens next month, and who would watch taped prime-time coverage on TV.

Shaq's Back with Dan LeBetard

Shaq Diesel motored into his new home town on Tuesday, six days after he was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Miami Heat. Here to gauge the impact of the millennium goliath on the magic city, the sunshine state and the balance of the NBA is Miami Herald columnist Dan LeBetard.

Major League Lacrosse

There seems to be a new sports league created every 15 minutes. The diehard supporters of lacrosse, a niche sport if there ever was one, are hoping Major League Lacrosse can make it nationally one day.


Fears that Athens won't be ready in time for the Summer Olympics and that security may be insufficient once the Games begin have dominated Olympic headlines for months. But according to Greek-American and former soccer pro Greg Lalas, the result of July 4th's Euro 2004 Finals should change all of that.

The Big Horse

In his most recent book, "The Big Horse," Joe McGinniss recounts the adventures and misadventures of Volponi, winner of the Breeder's Cup Classic two years ago, and P.G. Johnson, the big horse's trainer.

This program aired on July 24, 2004.
