Cher, KISS head list of pregame performers

MIAMI -- Cher insists her attire when she performs the national anthem at the Super Bowl will be plain. Her rendition won't be, though. "It's a little rock-and-roll," the Oscar-winning entertainer said Friday as she prepared to rehearse. "It rocks, it really does. I never realized that before. And the lyrics are great." Cher will join the high-energy rock band KISS in a powerful pregame show that will include more than 600 other performers, along with pyrotechnics and other special effects.
Japanese catch dance fever from arcade game

TOKYO -- After a long day at the office, Noriuchi Ito is ready to boogie -- with a relentless, demanding partner who always takes the lead. Like countless other young Japanese, Ito has succumbed to the latest dance craze sweeping the nation -- an electronic arcade game called "Dance Dance Revolution" that could change the look of arcades worldwide. For $1.75, players climb onto a lighted platform and dance with a computer-generated partner, trying to match their footwork to arrows on a 29-inch screen. The partner does his own, completely different, thing.

This week alone, the Florida Marlins have provided enough story lines to last through May sweeps. The latest and longest-running story continued Sunday, when Marlins ace right-hander Kevin Brown (viral infection) was skipped for the second time in as many days. Brown, originally slated to start Games 4 and 7 (if necessary), now won't pitch until Tuesday's Game 6 in Atlanta.
