Sam Pick, the mayor of Santa Fe, N.M., cooks tacos on television these days--even though he feels he's better with turkeys. But that's a small problem compared to sneaking his favorite cologne--Santa Fe by Shulton--into view. He has been on the road 3 1/2 weeks now, and "80% of the people on the shows don't even know the cologne is behind this," the mayor said, grinning with glee as he settles into a chair at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

It was precisely at this point last season when the clouds parted, the angels sang and the Miami Dolphins finally won a game. They beat Baltimore to narrowly avoid becoming the first team in NFL history to finish 0-16. How amazing that Miami -- revamped by Bill Parcells, Tony Sparano, Chad Pennington and others -- is now in a three-way tie for first in the AFC East.

When the New York Giants and New England Patriots squared off for the Lombardi Trophy last year, it was the most-watched Super Bowl in history -- 97.5 million viewers. This year, the audience could be even bigger. Just think: All those people, just to watch a state championship. OK, so the upstart Arizona Cardinals and rookie-led Baltimore Ravens could make it to Tampa.
