Owairan, center, is challenged by Alain Boghossian, (eft, and di- dier Deschamps of France during World Cup action north of Paris Thursday. France won 4-0 to advance to the second round. , Detroit revels in celebration DETROIT (AP) — Callit the city of believers. The celebration of the Detroit Red Winds' first Stanley Cup in 42 years that ended after a limousine crash last year resumed again Thursday, two days after the team clinched its second consecutive championship. When injured defenseman Vladimir Konstantinov was helped out of his wheelchair and took a few finger steps across the Htatft?, the crowd of 1.2 million •fans who attended a celebration parade and rally had their beliefs affirmed. "Next year, because we will all stil) believe, Vlftdy will walk across thia stage by himaelf," team trainer John Wharton said as Konc.tantinov was wheeled to the front of the stage. • During the season, players wore patches on their uniforms with the word ^"believe" in English and Russian, along with the initials V.K. and S:M. —, for Kon- stanlinov and injured team masseur Sergei Mnatsakanov who are still recovering from the June 13. 1997, accident. Repeatedly wiping away tears, Mnatsakanov gave the thumbs-up sign as he was wheeled into Hart Plaza. "I. think the Red Wings to me area!! about caring and sharing," coach Scotty Bowman said. "This team haa shared something this year to really get To the. top of the mountain again. "For both Vladimir and Sergei, this is worth all the accolades for the team this year." Outfitted in the tenm'rt winged wheel, red-and-white sweaters despite temperatures that broke into the 80*, fans in the city that calls itself Hockeytown aimed to prove why they deserved the name — drowning out speaker* at the rally with chants and raising their hands in the air. "I thought we saw it nil last year," aaid the Wings' Kris Drap- er. "This is so overwhelming. .This is so unbelievable, especially the support you gave Vlady and Sergei." The Red Wings faced plenty of obstacles this year In addition to the losa of Konst&ntinov. the team traded nway goalie Mike Vernon — who was MVP of the 1997 finals. The Red Wings also played the first 59 games without Sergei Fedorov, who held out for a six-year, $38 million contract. "I don't think anybody here's getting tired of winning," said team captain Steve Yzerman, Pistons, Long part ways DETROIT (AP) — Grant Long was not expected to return next season to play for the Detroit Piston*, after Long's agent said he would reject an offer by the team. Under terms of Long^s contract, if the Pistons don't agree to pay him 12.97 million next season, he can turn down any offer and become a free agent. Charles Tucker, Long's agent, told the Detroit Free Press for a storv today that the Pistons of- ferrd Long $1 million in guaranteed money Wednesday and gave him 48 hours to respond. Long, 32, was expected to reject the offer today and enter fre« agency for a possible deal with another team. Long, « power forward from Romulus High School and Eastern Michigan, played 40 games last season aa a starter and reserve before breaking his foot Feb. 13 at Miami. He avernged 3.5 points and 3.8 rebounds, , Long came from Atlanta with Stacey Augmon two years ago in a trade for four draft picks after the Pistons lost guard Allan Houston, who had signed with New York.

And they're not blaming El Nino, they're blaming El President*. FIFA president Sepp Blatter and French organizing committee chairman Michel Platini criticized referee* for not being tough enough, particularly on tackles from behind and time-wasting. Ths refs took the words to heart and', on Thursday, five red cards were issued in two games — one more than in the first eight days and 20 game* of the tournament. The home team's biggest star, Zinedine Zidane, was -among those kicked out. "I think what they said was ridiculous," Danish defender Marc Rieper said after Denmark's 1-1 tie with South Africa, a match with thre« ejections and seven cautions. "Referees have been very good so far and it is a very stupid comment that he has made. I don't know if he is trying to ruin the tournament that he made himself, and kill the football game." Two more ejections and four more yellows followed in France's 4-0 victory over Saudi Arabia, a win that moved the host nation into the second round and made the Saudis the first team eliminated. Today s FIFA snid referee might have overreacted to Blatter's comments. That ii * conclusion that one could draw," FIFA spokesman Keith Cooper said. He said acting general secretary Michel Zen-Ruffinen and outgoing president Joao Have- l&ntfe would meet with the refs to try to sort out the confusion, "There is *ome room for improvement as to how the actions are punished," Cooper said. "The first days, there was too much leniency. Yesterday (Thursday), the movement vcas in the opposite direction." France't victory, which sparked str«*t celebrations in and around Paris, came with a price. Forward Christophe Dujrarry tore his right hamstring in the first half and it; likely gene for th* rest of th« tournament, and Zidane i'a suspended for at least one game. Nigeria looked to join France and Brazil in the second round today, facing Bulgaria in a Group D match in Paris, where a victory would guarantee it. Spain hoped to recover from its opening 3-1i loss to the Nigerians against Paraguay in Saint-Etienne. The U.S. team isn't thinking about Sunday's politically charged game with Iran in other terms. "I don't look at it too much in the politics," Marcelo Balboa said. "It's another game. We have to play our game, get cur result in order for us to.advance." President Clinton said- Thursday he favors a genuine reconcili- ation with Iran. Perhaps the game at Lyon could help? *Before the frame, we're going to shake hands, and afterwards we're going to cxchnng« shirts," Eric Wynalda said. "That should b« a good example for the world." Denmark 1, South Africa 1 "I thought the referee was a bit harsh in his decisions," South African captain Lucas Radebe said. "He made people scared to even go out and tackle.- I Jhink he made a mesa of the gnme." Colombian referee John Jairo Toro tossed threo players out m Toulouse, the most controversial when he expelled Danish defender Morten Wioghorst for bumping forward Benm McCarthy in the back and knocking him down, • Franc* 4, Saudi Arabia 0 In Saint-Denis, the French capitalized on their man advantage after Mohammed al-Khilaiwi was expelled in the I9th minute, getting goals from Thk-rry Henry and David Trercguct in the 68th. But even after Zidane was sent off in the 70th for stepping on Saudi captain Fuad Amin, the French added two more: a second by Henry and a finale by Bizentc Lizarazu. "I didn't deserve this," Zidane said, "I did not mean to hurt the man. I just fell on him." Faustino Asprilla asked for leniency, too. The Colombian striker said he was sorry for publicly criticizing coach Hernnn Dario Gomez. Asprilla WHS dismissed from the team by Gomez. Rangers' Sele becomes AL's first 10-game winner By Tb« A*»ocisrt»d Pro** Aaron Sele won a wild pitching matchup against Tom Candiotti. S«l« issued a career-high seven walks and hit a batter, but still managed to become the AL's first 10-game winner Thursday because Candiotti wa» even wilder In Texas' 3-2 victory over Oakland. Candiotti walked six, threw two wild pitches and made an error as the A's had their four-game' winning streak snapped on a sweltering afternoon in Texas. "It was a little toaxty out there," Sel« said of the heat, which peaked at 99 degree*. "It was hard on everybody." Sele (10-4) struggiedt through 6 2-3 innings, but managed to hold Oakland to two runs on RBI tingles by Kevin Mitchell and Miguel Tejada. "Aaron made a lot of quality pitches when he had to," said Rangers manager Johnny Gates, who was ejected in the second inning by home plate umpire Ted Barrett for arguing balls and strikes "You need to win one of these every once in a while to relax a little bit." Candiotti (4-9) lost his fifth consecutive start, allowing three runs and four hits in five innings. The knuckleballe'r didn't get much help from Oakland's offense, which stranded 15 run- WNBA Shock get stung CHARLOTTE (AP) — After getting shut down inside in their last game, the Charlotte Sting made some adjustment*. The changes paid off. Rhonda Mapp scored a season- high 18 points as the Charlotte defeated the Detroit Shock 71-67 Thursday night. "Against Houston, we didn't have our spacing inside and it hurt us," Mapp said. "We went out tonight and corrected our spacing. That opened up our inside game." Vicky Bullett had 16 points for the Sting (3-1) and tied the team record of five steals in a game. Andre* Stinson hit 3-of-4 3-pointers and finished with 13 points. Sandy Brondello led Detroit (0-3) with 14 points, and Korie Hlede scored 13. The lead changed hands twelve times in the first half, and neither team led by more than one point during the period. Detroit was ahead 33-32 at halftime, but the Sting pushed their lead out to 11 points in the second half. "They had a five minute stretch in the S4?cond half which put us down in double digits, and that was hard to get out of the hole that we dutf ourm-lvm in." Hlede satd. ners, two short of the club record set in 1982. Angel* H, Mariner* 5 At Anaheim, rookie Jarrod Wuhburn remained unbeaten as the surging Angels rallied to beat the slumping Mariners despite Ken Griffey Jr.'s AL-leading 27th homer. The Angels, who trailed 5-2 heading into the seventh inning, won their fourth straight and 16th in 18 games, keeping them \¥i game* ahead of Texas in the ALWest. Royals 5, Tiger* 3 At Detroit, Jeff King hit a two- run double and Dean Palmer homered as Kansas City got its fourth win in five game*. King doubled in a three-run fifth inning that gave the Royals a 4-1 lead and ended Justin Thompson's second-shortest start of the season. Thompson (5-7) lasted only 4 1-3 innings, allowing four run* and nine hits. Pat Rapp (6-6) gave up two runs and eight hits in six-plus innings, and Jeff Montgomery got three outs for his 13th save. Yankees 5, Indiana 2 At Cleveland, Scott Brosius' bases-loaded walk started a three-run ninth inning that lifted the Yankees over the Indians. It was New York's first appearance at Jacobs Field since losing Game 5 of the AL division series last October, and the second meeting between the division leaders this season. After Brtwiua was walked by Mike Jackson, Chuck Knoblauch singled off first baseman Jim Th- ome's glove for one run, and another run scored on the play when second baseman David Bell threw wildly trying to get Knoblauch at first. R*d Sox 7, Devil Rays 5 10 Inning* . At St. Petersburg, Fla., Troy dreary's two-run triple off Jim Mecir in- the 10th inning gave Boston a victory over Tampa Bay. John Wasdin (4-3), the fourth of five Red Sox pitchers, worked one perfect inning to get the victory. ROYAUJ*.
