White says that its owner spotted a burglar leaving her house with it but that the police were able to recover the set. The bad news: The silver had been tossed from the burglar's car onto a freeway. Damage included dents, broken handle parts and what White matter-of-factly describes as "road rash."

Owner Bill Wirtz of the Chicago Blackhawks, former chairman of the NHL's Board of Governors, got used to being the league's leading decision-maker during his long tenure. If there were meetings in smoke-filled back rooms, Wirtz called the shots. Now, though, he doesn't have the keys to those rooms anymore.

Steve Trachsel didn't want to help Barry Bonds gain on Mark McGwire. "He has a home run off me already this year, and it was a fastball in," Trachsel said. "If he was going to hit one, I wanted him to hit it the opposite way."
