FORECAST: Temperatures remain mild (86 [degrees]), but the
threat of showers and thunderstorms returns.

HOT TICKET: Track and field (AT11391). It's the busiest night at
Olympic Stadium, with nine golds at stake. The highlight is the
4X100 men's relay, an event the U.S. has won 14 of 18 times and
has failed to win only as a result of disqualification (1912,
'60 and '88) or boycott (1980).

WHAT IF ... Carl Lewis runs the anchor for the U.S. in that
4X100 relay? After all the controversy he has caused, he better
not get caught from behind.
