Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. THE SEARCH IS OVER

Bob Bradley (above) has been replaced as the coach of the United States men's national soccer team by Juergen Klinsmann. Guess it took a mere 13 months to figure out that someone had to be the scapegoat for that loss to Ghana in the World Cup's Round of 16.

2. BLINDED BY THE LIGHT

Former Redskins General Manager Vinny Cerrato says if he had to do it all over again, he'd still sign expensive and unproductive free agent Albert Haynesworth. It's like the old cliche -- hindsight is 20-400.

3. SALES ARE DOWN

Broncos linebacker Robert Ayers was told by Reebok not to change his uniform number from 56 to 91, as he first requested. If I had a dollar for every 56/Ayers jersey I've seen around town, I'd be broke.

4. YOUR PLACE OR MINE?

Stephon Marbury doesn't think that Carmelo Anthony or Amar'e Stoudemire could handle playing in China. That's interesting since Marbury, who went through five NBA teams in 14 years, didn't handle playing in North America too well.

5. GAME CALLED

A youth baseball team from Uganda has been denied visas that would have allowed them to play in the Little League World Series. The kids have learned an important lesson about baseball: Uganda win them all.
