There is unlikely to be any parades or statues unveiled in his hometown of Putaruru -- not that the self-effacing 60-year-old known as 'The Professor' would want them anyway -- but All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said Smith had left an enduring legacy after three coaching stints with the team. "He's very open-minded, he shares things ... he was inventive, and he carried that innovation into his coaching," Hansen told the All Blacks website (www.allblacks.com).

Friday's joyride from Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston to Fort Independence on Castle Island will celebrate the U.S. Navy's 242nd birthday and the 220th anniversary of the iconic vessel's maiden voyage. The world's oldest commissioned warship will fire a 21-gun salute in the waters off the fort, and its cannons will boom another 17 times as it passes the U.S. Coast Guard station — the former site of the shipyard where the Constitution was built and launched in 1797.
