Three Dots and a Cloud of Dust ...

ou chicks.jpg   *If you've noticed some quirky fonts or crooked pictures this week it's because Sportatorium is taking a fancy schmancy new software program for a test drive. Cool thing for you customers is that if you see a pic you'd like to see even bigger - like, I dunno, maybe the one just to the left that gives OU girls equal time - all you do is click on it. Presto. Magnification! ...

   *You know Dirk Nowitzki was named NBA Player of the Week. What you didn't know is that he's won the honor nine times. And that, at 24.7 points per game, he's all the way up to fourth in  the league in scoring. Bet you a nickel he tops that tonight against the Pacers ...

Porterfield has been named the American Motorcyle Association's Female Rider of the Year after she flew 232 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Okay, I'm impressed ...

   *Standing ovation for the Lovejoy High School girls' volleyball team. In only the school's second year - it doesn't even have a senior class yet - the Leopards won the Class 3A title last weekend in San Marcos.
