In a surprise move, Keith Jackson, Philadelphia's Pro Bowl tight end, ended his two-month holdout--in time to play against the Rams Sunday at Anaheim Stadium. Jackson, who caught 144 passes in his first two pro seasons, had said he would not report to the team until the final two years of his contract were reworked. The contract remains the same, but he came in anyway. . . .

The name Keith Jackson comes up and one sport leaps to mind: college football. Jackson would prefer not to be associated solely with the sport he has broadcast for more than a decade for ABC. Jackson, doing college basketball this winter for the network, would rather be known as a jack-of-all trades. To go a step further, he would just as soon be known as a newsman covering sports. "I'd rather be known as a professional than a specialist," Jackson said.

Tight end Keith Jackson ended his three-month contract holdout and reported to the Green Bay Packers, who obtained him in a trade last March with the Miami Dolphins. Sherman Lewis, the Packers' offensive coordinator, said he thinks Jackson could contribute as early as the Oct. 29 game at Detroit. Jackson, an eight-year pro and five-time Pro Bowl player, caught 59 passes for 673 yards and seven touchdowns with Miami last season.

On Saturday, Keith Jackson will drive from his hillside home in Sherman Oaks to the Rose Bowl, where he will do the play-by-play on that evening's ABC telecast of the UCLA-Nebraska football game. On Sept. 24, he'll drive to the Coliseum to announce the USC-Oklahoma game. To Jackson, those are plum assignments. "I'm one guy who loves to drive to work," Jackson said. Usually, Jackson flies to work.

In a surprise move, Keith Jackson, the Philadelphia Eagles' Pro Bowl tight end, ended his two-month holdout Wednesday--in time to play against the Rams Sunday at Anaheim Stadium. Jackson, who caught 144 passes and was the NFC's starting tight end in the Pro Bowl in his first two pro seasons, said he would not report to the team until the final two years of his contract were reworked. The contract remains the same, but he came in, anyway.

SACRAMENTO -- There's no shortage of offbeat characters in San Francisco who are drawn to City Hall. Willie Brown was harassed by an Elvis impersonator. Gavin Newsom was stalked by a man wearing purple latex gloves. Democratic strategist Nathan Ballard, who spent a decade working in City Hall, said Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow was one of those characters. “I just remember him showing up at events and trying to get pictures with politicians,” Ballard said. The Chinatown gangster was trying to make a name for himself as a legitimate community leader after being released from prison in 2003.
