How to start a fine wine collection — on a budget

Finance
Competition for collectable wine can be fierce. Just ask Nicholas Paris, who holds the prestigious Master of Wine designation from the Institute of Masters of Wine in London. Paris, 42, who has worked in the wine industry for years, once helped field competing bids from two executives at major Fortune 500 firms over a bottle of wine being auctioned at Christie's. The executives, who were bidding by phone, did not know the identity of whom they were competing with over a 1947 Burgundy. But their determination to win helped drive the price from $ 8,000 ...

Titans QB Mariota (neck) expected to start

Sports
Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who suffered a stinger in last Sunday's game, was a full participant in practice on Friday and is expected to start on Monday night against the Houston Texans (7-3). Mariota was limited in practice the previous two days after sustaining what is listed as neck injury when he was sacked late in the second quarter by Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis. He did not return against in the second half as the Titans (5-5) went down to a 38-10 defeat. "He felt better," Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. " ... It looked good today, but that's why you practice. You try to always improve and get better. I would imagine that Marcus is going to be the starting quarterback after being not limited, and full, and probably hope to start." Mariota, s...

The Carolina Panthers improved to 5-2 on Sunday behind the play of quarterback Cam Newton, who was effective against a Baltimore Ravens defense that ranked No. 1 in the NFL in yards allowed and No. 2 against the pass. Newton completed 21 of 29 for 219 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. In the past five quarters, going back to Carolina's win over Philadelphia in Week 7, Newton has completed 37 of 51 passes (72.5 percent) for 420 yards and four touchdowns. He also has a rushing touchdown. Newton is also excelling despite a sore shoulder that limited him in practice last week. Carolina coach Ron Rivera said that Newton opted out of a Hail Mary throw at the end of the second quarter on Sunday because he didn't want...
Astros' Charlie Morton well rested for Game 4 start vs. Red Sox

Astros' Charlie Morton well rested for Game 4 start vs. Red Sox

Sports
HOUSTON -- Like staff mate Dallas Keuchel but to an even greater extent, Houston right-hander Charlie Morton has been more observer than participant in recent weeks because of the Astros' success combined with off days that are part of the annual postseason schedule. When Morton starts Game 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday at Minute Maid Park with the Astros trailing 2-1 in the series, it will be his first appearance since Sept. 30. Morton toed the rubber in the regular-season finale against the Baltimore Orioles and worked just three innings by design, capping an odd final month that saw him limited to 15 innings in four starts because of lingering right shoulder discomfort. Given the confluence of his extended break and those health...
