Barry Sanders will grace the cover of the latest installment of the mega-popular Madden video football games 15 years after retiring from the NFL. EA Sports had fans vote on who would appear on the front of Madden 25 using a 64-player bracket system -- 32 retired players representing the "old school" and 32 current players representing the "new school. " Sanders garnered 58% of the vote over "new school" finalist Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings. I am shocked, excited, humbled, elated.

Freshman James Forrest made a lunging three-point shot at the buzzer Saturday as Georgia Tech stunned USC, 79-78, to advance to the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals. Rodney Chatman's jumper with three seconds left had given USC a 78-76 lead. Tech inbounded the ball to Jon Barry and he lost his dribble at midcourt, but the ball went off USC with eight-tenths of a second left.

R.B. Fallstrom of the Associated Press writes that St. Louis holds the dubious claim as a no-sports city. Without an NFL or NBA team and with the baseball season canceled and the NHL on strike, St. Louis is in limbo. The city recently opened a $135-million indoor sports facility and next fall, the $260-million indoor football stadium will be ready for use. "Too bad, there's nobody to play in them," Fallstrom writes. * Trivia time: Who holds the NFL record for most yards gained rushing in a game?

Having heard the boos for Deion Sanders, Barry Bonds took no chances. He responded to his 30th home run Thursday night by applauding himself as he began a slow tour of the bases. The two-run shot in the fifth inning, coupled to a two-run homer by Glenallen Hill in the third, helped lift the San Francisco Giants to a 5-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Candlestick Park. The loss was not as grievous as it might have been for the Rockies.

The Detroit Lions hope Barry Sanders can take them back to the future. The Lions, desperate for help with their punchless offense, made the Heisman Trophy-winning tailback out of Oklahoma State the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft Sunday. It was the first time Detroit has gone for a big name running back since they took Billy Sims, another Heisman winner, in 1980. The Lions last were in the NFL playoffs in 1983--with Sims in the backfield. "I look for him to make a tremendous impact," said Detroit coach Wayne Fontes, smoking a big cigar.

Suspended owner Eddie DeBartolo gave up his stake in the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, leaving the club in his sister's control and resolving their feud over the family's financial empire, which is valued at more than $1 billion, sources said. The tentative agreement divides the assets of the Edward J. DeBartolo Corp. and allows DeBartolo and his sister, Denise DeBartolo York, to go their separate financial ways.

ART IMITATES LIFE, BUT COWBOYS IMITATE DYNASTY Yes, it's true that most of the group-think NFL cognoscenti have already eagerly awarded the Cowboys this year's Super Bowl; and yes, owner Jerry Jones and the rest of the vivacious Cowboy crew have been described in hallowed terms usually reserved for royalty--or glitzy revolutionaries.

When Jimmy Powell made golfing history last Sunday by becoming the first professional to win a Super Senior as well as a Senior PGA Tour event at Ada, Mich., it didn't surprise the old-timers at the Via Verde and Indian Hill country clubs. Powell spent a number of years as club professional at the two clubs when an ailing back prevented him from playing on the regular tour. Super Seniors are 60 and over and play alongside the other 50-and older golfers in senior tour tournaments.

Quarterbackus healthius. They are getting rarer and rarer around the league these days. Sightings are frequent in Buffalo and Miami, and there are a couple of beautiful examples of the species in Philadelphia and Dallas. Of course, you couldn't say that last year. In the last couple of weeks, quarterbacks have been dropping like ratings for Twin Peaks. Sunday, things got even worse.
