Sports briefs: Bell to make Leafs debut

Former Sharks forward Mark Bell will make his Toronto Maple Leafs debut today at Ottawa after completing a 15-game suspension on Saturday for a drinking and driving incident in Milpitas. “I’ve definitely been thinking about it a lot lately, I anticipate little butterflies,” Bell said. “Just more excitement than anything.”

Yallop to return toEarthquakes

Looks like Becks was right after all. Though David Beckham broke the news after a charity game that Frank Yallop had resigned as coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy, he neglected to say that Yallop would return to San Jose for a second stint with the reborn Earthquakes. Yallop won MLS championships in San Jose in 2001 and 2003. The Galaxy will receive the Earthquakes’ third-round pick in the MLS SuperDraft as compensation.
