Former Giant shortstop Uribe killed

THE AFTERNOON NEWS

Jose Uribe, the Giants' shortstop who was really the player to be named later has been killed in an auto accident in the Dominican Republic.

Uribe, 47, came to the major leagues as Jose Gonzalez Uribe, then changed his name after being sent to the Giants.

Former Zag Ronny Turiaf (pictured; AP photo) may start for the Lakers tonight against Atlanta, and the biggest reason just might have been Jeremy Pargo's brother.

See, Jannero drove the lane without fear during New Orlean's win over LA on Wednesday night, and that didn't sit too well with coach Phil Jackson. He wants Turiaf to do something about it. One guy with Zag connections helping another.

Contrary to an earlier post here, West Virginia football coach Rich Rodriguez has decided to stay with the Mountaineers and not take the University of Alabama position.

Alabama is still in the market for a head coach and we wonder what name will come up next.
