Hit: With delicious irony, a seen-it-all, done-it-all Hollywood crowd passed over the footprints of Cecil B. DeMille and other late, great show people at Mann's Chinese Theater tosee an extravaganza staged by Isaac Mizrahi, a New York fashion designer, and his pack of supermodels (Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Veronica Webb). For final punch--ifyou don't count the faux snow that came down on the already cool crowd--there was k.d.

Goalie Chris Terreri stopped 31 shots as the Chicago Blackhawks parlayed a second-period goal by Eric Daze into a 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden in a game delayed by an injury to Wayne Gretzky's wife. Janet Gretzky was injured when struck in the head by Plexiglas from the rink's sideboards late in the third period. She appeared to have been knocked unconscious, but she apparently regained consciousness as she was being carried out of the arena.

If only Anna Kournikova's opponents were as easy to swat away as Jay Leno. Life on the court was considerably more difficult than her appearance last week on "The Tonight Show," in which Kournikova dispatched Leno with ease, leaving him exposed as a tennis neophyte. Tuesday night, Kournikova was the one left stranded, helpless under the barrage of Anke Huber's powerful ground strokes in a first-round match.

For a couple of seconds, there was no visible reaction to Wayne Gretzky's 801st career goal, tying Gordie Howe's all-time NHL mark. "We all froze," said Mike Barnett, Gretzky's agent. "We realized we were witnessing history. It was like time stood still in the arena."

Oddsmakers in Las Vegas reported a record betting spree during the Super Bowl. Not all the bets were conventional, however, such as Denver giving seven to win. One of the more unusual involved matching Phil Mickelson's score in the final round of the Phoenix Open against yards receiving by the Broncos' Ed McCaffrey. Mickelson shot an 80, and McCaffrey finished with 72 yards--demonstrating that oddsmakers usually know how to figure the odds pretty close.

Oh, Canada wondered, how could the Edmonton Oilers trade Wayne Gretzky? Why not just send the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, too? "Wayne Gretzky is a national symbol like the beaver . . ., " Democratic Party House leader Nelson Riis said at the capital in Ottawa. "How can we allow the sale of our national symbols? The Edmonton Oilers without Wayne Gretzky is like apple pie without ice cream, like winter without snow, like the 'Wheel of Fortune' without Vanna White--it's quite simply unthinkable."

What: Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue "Crossing the Line" reads the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. And so it does, crossing the line from daring to dumb in 218 tedious pages. For years, Sports Illustrated made news each winter by being one of the only mainstream magazines to show half-naked women. It would include the photos around its regular sports stories, subscribers would chuckle about hiding it under the bed, it was a nice inside joke.
