Madison women near Iditarod finish

The first nine Iditarod mushers and sled-dog teams have crossed the finish line in Nome, Alaska so far today, but another 70 mushers -- including two Madison natives -- are still out on this year's 908-mile course. Zoya DeNure and her dogs have passed the Shaktoolik checkpoint, a little more than 700 miles into the race, in 54th place. Anne Capistrant's team, meanwhile, has passed the Kaltag checkpoint in 73rd position after about 600 miles of mushing. >More

 Spartans at the gates

On a basketball court, Steve Collins has no problem communicating. The Madison Memorial boys coach possesses a foghorn voice which he uses often during the course of a game to get his team's attention. >More
 Bo Ryan does it again

Madison men's basketball coach Bo Ryan slipped a promotional plug into his remarks after last Saturday's 65-56 win over Minnesota. He was talking about how, at one point during the game, Minnesota guard Lawrence McKenzie scored on a wide-open three-pointer after a Wisconsin miss at the other end. >More
 Up close and personal with the Mad Rollin' Dolls: The Quad Squad

As this weekend's second bout of the Mad Rollin' Dolls 2008 season quickly approaches, it's time to get to know another of the league's four home teams. Boasting some of the fastest and strongest players in the league and a 2006 title, the Quad Squad is a lean, mean, and very green machine. >More
 Grownups behaving badly

A lot of these people make it to as many games as they can and consider themselves supportive. They appear to be successful, educated, middle-class professionals who likely teach their kids to be respectful and polite. Evidently, that all goes out the window after a questionable charge is whistled. >More
 Up close and personal with the Mad Rollin' Dolls: The Unholy Rollers

Without further ado, meet everyone's favorite undead underdogs, the Unholy Rollers. For a team that once harbored a bit of "bad girl" status, these bloodthirsty ladies in red haven't had much luck with wins in the past few seasons. But under the new leadership of third-year jammer WildBerry Punch, the unholy ones are looking to brush off the cobwebs, climb out of their coffins, and show the league what the dark side of derby can do. >More
 Behind the cameras with the Packers at Lambeau Field

For Packers fans lucky enough to score a ticket to the NFC Championship game at Lambeau Field this evening, it's going to be a cold one out there. The warmth of more than 70,000 other people watching the game can only warm one up so much amidst wind chills approaching minus-30 degrees. Try turning one four-hour game into a 15-hour day, though. That's how long Kenneth LaBarre will spend at the stadium in Green Bay on Sunday, though, working the cameras for the broadcast of the game. >More
 Party on, Packers fans

As I stood near the Majestic Theatre's bar and watched people exchange high fives, dance, hoot, holler and, in some cases, just sit and grin, I couldn't help but wonder why the NFL would want to shut such a gathering down. >More
