HE SAID WHAT?

“There’s no bigger stage than Monday night. Everybody’s watching.” - Terrell Owens, who had three catches for 89 yards and two scores in Dallas’ win over Philadelphia

NEWSMAKERS ” WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK

Tiger Woods

Still injured, golf’s best player won’t attend this week’s Ryder Cup, though he’ll be the player everyone’s talking about.

USC

Top-ranked Trojans made a statement with their pummeling of then-No. 5 Ohio State. Next test is Oregon on Oct. 4

Ed Hochuli

Muscled-up, well-known NFL referee botched a key call in the Broncos’ win, and it could cost him a playoff spot.

Carlos Zambrano

Timely no-hitter for his division-leading Cubs, who are trying to hold off the slumping Brewers in the National League Central.

Manny Ramirez

MVP talk sounds crazy till you start to look at the numbers: 42 games, .395 average, 14 home runs and 43 RBI for the first-place Dodgers.

LOVEY LAND

An excerpt from Thom Loverro’s blog on washingtontimes.com:

At the Nationals’ Mausoleum on Monday, a sparse crowd of 21,759 was on hand to watch John Lannan pitch a masterful game, allowing just one hit over seven innings, beating the New York Mets 7-2. Lannan is one of the keepers, and along with Collin Ballester and perhaps Tim Redding will be the three set spots in the rotation next year. It is truly a shame that the first year at Nationals Park will end with such a whimper. Think about what the crowds will be for the final three home games next week against the Marlins. There will be all sorts of giveaways, but the biggest giveaway is this inaugural season at the ballpark. The Lerner family simply gave it away.
