    I don't know if this got included in yesterday's links but it has some good tidbits in it.

    Reign in Spain changing with Barcelona's rise - Boston Globe

    Starting at the end of the first page:
    Spector is listed at 6 feet, 185 pounds but appears closer in size to his late grandfather, Art Spector, the first player ever signed by the NBA's Celtics in 1945. Art Spector was listed at 6 feet, 4 inches.

    Couple of other YA tidbits too.

    ''Manchester United has two other US players -- goalkeeper Tim Howard and 17-year-old striker Giuseppe Rossi, both from New Jersey."

    Might be wishful thinking on the Rossi part. I mean, I know he's American, but it's a stretch to call him a U.S. player when he lines up for Italy youth team games.

    Still, there's always hope until he gets capped by Italy as a senior international, I guess.
