The National Lacrosse League canceled its 2008 season because league officials and the players association couldn't reach agreement on a contract.

How will we fill the void?

What's next, a picket line outside the Arena Football League offices?

The Arizona Cardinals signed quarterback Tim Hasselbeck to back up Tim Rattay.

Yeah, things are still good in Arizona.

Nice trade for the San Diego Chargers yesterday when they acquired receiver Chris Chambers from the Miami Dolphins for a second-round draft pick in '08. And nice career move for Chambers, who might actually reach his potential now that he has someone to throw him the ball. He has Pro Bowl talent. Time to turn it loose.

Wachovia Bank is seeking about $940,000 from Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and a business partner after they defaulted on a 2006 loan intended for them to open a wine shop and restaurant.

A wine shop? Allow me to be the first to make a Mad Dog 20/20 reference.

While the Orioles continue to court Rick Kranitz – who has drawn interest from more than one team outside Baltimore – here's something to get those juices flowing: A peak at the early spring training schedule.

Come to Fort Lauderdale and begin the bonding process with new reliever Roberto Novoa, the latest ex-Cub to join the organization.

Soon, the Orioles' team charter will be covered in ivy.

Novoa missed last season with a right humeral head fracture. Sort of makes a strained oblique seem like child's play.

Miguel Tejada would have insisted on being in the lineup the next day. Guarantee it.

We'll probably be seeing plenty of Novoa-types in camp next spring. I can't imagine the Orioles spending another $42 million on the bullpen, or anything close to that.

Manager Dave Trembley said he wanted major league pitching next year. Well, Novoa's been there. I'm just not sure that's quite what Trembley meant.
