Here comes the . . . uh . . . Now's the time to really be concerned if your son looks to a star athlete as a role model, or apparently a model, period. Dennis Rodman had his day in a wedding dress, and now Ricky Williams of the New Orleans Saints is a drag-ster on the cover of ESPN magazine. It's gotten so big that two Dallas Morning News writers--sports department, not fashion--debated which was more attractive.

New York Jet Coach Bill Parcells has a knack for diagnostic medical examinations. For example, when Wayne Chrebet had a sprained ankle last year, Parcells went up to the wide receiver and kicked him on the injured joint to gauge his pain threshold. Similarly, he poked former quarterback Glenn Foley in the ribs to judge just how sore they were. "That wasn't a malicious thing," Parcells said. "My college coach used to do that to me to find out if something was hurt. You can tell a lot."

Cleveland Brown quarterback Tim Couch fractured his right thumb on the final play of practice Thursday and will be out at least six weeks. Couch was following through on a 25-yard fade pass to rookie Dennis Northcutt into the right corner of the end zone when his hand banged into the hand of linebacker Ryan Taylor. "He'll need surgery and he'll miss at least six games," said dejected Brown Coach Chris Palmer.

NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said Thursday the league will still honor a Sept. 15 deadline, and based on what it has learned by that date, vote Oct. 6 to award an expansion franchise to either Houston or Los Angeles. He said no one has the lead in this dragged-out race. He said the league remains very interested in meeting with invited Los Angeles groups, and will do so Monday in New York. He said a delay in making a final determination between Houston and Los Angeles is unlikely.

Right now, trainer Bob Baffert doesn't care which horse is better. "Congaree's got as much talent as Point Given," he said Saturday. "In three weeks, we'll find out who wants it more." The "it" is the Kentucky Derby, which will be run May 5 at Churchill Downs with Baffert holding most of the trump cards.

I stopped by Angel Stadium the other night figuring Mike Scioscia and I might catch a cup of coffee and spend some time discussing my fantasy baseball team. I find it's taking a lot of my time, and Scioscia has plenty of that. As loaded as the Angels are this season, Scioscia has nothing to do these days other than sit in the corner of the dugout and pat his players on the back after they return from crossing the plate.

The Carolina Panthers announced the dismissal of Coach John Fox on Friday, signaling the end of a nine-year run in which he led the franchise to its only Super Bowl. Owner Jerry Richardson said the contracts of Fox and the rest of his staff wouldn't be renewed after Sunday's game at Atlanta. Fox said he expected the firing. "It's not new," he said. "It's something I've been preparing for actually for a couple of years. " Fox was first denied a contract extension after the 2008 season.

They could have used shovels for the groundbreaking, but this called for Texas flair. The guests fired Colt .45 pistols into a vacant lot, marking the start of Harris County Domed Stadium, otherwise known as the Astrodome. The man behind the project, Judge Roy Hofheinz, modestly suggested the stadium be dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World. That was 34 years and several facelifts ago. Now the Astrodome is losing its oldest tenant.

If you look at a business deal as a work of art, you've just witnessed the unveiling of a new Mona Lisa. I'm as disappointed as anyone that the NFL didn't award an expansion franchise to Los Angeles on Wednesday. But I stand in awe of the league owners, the barbarians at the goal line who manipulated Houston into paying more for a team than anyone outside their small circle could have imagined. Paul Tagliabue's picture should be on the billion dollar bill. The actual price tag in Houston is $1.

Had they been buying the Rams or Raiders, a 72-hour grace period providing for buyer's remorse might have been appropriate, but the team of Alfred Lerner and Carmen Policy has been given permission by the NFL to write a $530-million check to buy the new Cleveland Browns franchise. Former Browns' owner Art Modell, who moved his team to Baltimore three years ago, paid $4 million for the original Cleveland franchise in 1961.
