Lindy Infante is the first Green Bay Packer coach since Vince Lombardi 30 years ago to be honored by the Associated Press as NFL coach of the year, but there the comparison ends, he says. Infante, who guided the Packers to a 10-6 finish and within a victory of the playoffs, said: "There will never be another Vince Lombardi. I'm just honored to be sitting in the seat he sat in and coaching in the city he coached in and coaching the team he made so famous."

Hot Weather Brings Out Bacteria Hot, sticky weather inspires the back-yard chef to barbecue some killer hamburgers. Literally. Salmonella and E. coli revel in uncooked meat and hot weather. Avoid a bacteria buffet by placing a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the meat. Temperature should reach 145 degrees to 160 degrees for roast and 170 degrees to 180 degrees for poultry. Hamburger should not be pink in the middle. You must brown ground meat all the way through.

Now, for some low-definition TV: Before immersing ourselves in Super Bowl XXXIII on Fox, let's review the various lowlights and oddball moments brought to your screen during the 1998 football season. Fortunately, TV Times--unlike the NFL--uses instant replay. WORST ANALYSIS: Before the New Year's Day game, CBS' Craig James declared that "Wisconsin is the worst team ever to play in the Rose Bowl." The Badgers then went on to defeat UCLA, 38-31, finishing with an 11-1 record.
