The longest, eeriest, most schizoid, nervous World Series in the annals of baseball resumed Friday night. The Oakland A's were late arriving. Not as late as the Giants. They didn't show up till the ninth inning. In the immortal words of Joe Gould, they should of stood in bed. By the time they got there, the game and maybe the World Series was stolen. No team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win a World Series. No team has ever come back from 0-3 even to stretch the Series to six games.

When Pete Rozelle announced his retirement as commissioner of the National Football League, Ed Garvey, the former NFL Players Assn. chief who led the players' strike in 1982, recalled one humorous moment in their usually adversarial relationship: "I remember Alan Page filed a grievance in 1972 because Jim Finks (then of the Minnesota Vikings) wouldn't pay him a bonus," Garvey told the Washington Post. "Rozelle was the arbiter, and I called him as a witness.

It didn't take Rickey Henderson long to make an impact as the Seattle Mariners' new leadoff hitter. Henderson led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run Saturday in his first at-bat for Seattle, but the Tampa Bay Devil Rays stopped their losing streak at six games with a fight-interrupted, 4-3 victory over the Mariners. Henderson, who made his Mariner debut as a pinch-runner Friday night, hit his major league-record 76th leadoff home run.

It is the same every year. The doctor shakes his head and says, "Remember, don't get upset over this All-Star thing. The voters know not what they do. It has no significance. It's strictly a popularity contest and nothing to get agitated about. Watch your blood pressure." Sound advice, but every year it's forgotten five minutes after the latest tabulations are released.
