Along with the success Drew Pearson has enjoyed in life, he's had to put up with plenty of ribbing. That was true 20 years ago on the football field, and it's true today in business. Take the 1975 National Football Conference title game, when the Dallas Cowboys trailed Minnesota by four points with less than a minute left. Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach launched a 50-yard desperation pass to Pearson, who outleaped the Vikings' Nate Wright.

Pro football is this country's most popular sport. But what about the most hated? According to a poll conducted by Sports Marketing Group in Atlanta, dogfighting is No. 1, followed by pro wrestling and bullfighting. Boxing is No. 4. Wonder why?

Karl Malone is living in Newport Beach and dazzling the front-row Hollywood set at Staples Center these days, but he's likely to have a strong connection to Salt Lake City for some time. Malone still has a house -- OK, mansion -- to sell and it's going to take a big spender to move in to the 17,230-square-foot hunting-lodge style home built in the hills above the city. It's listed at $6.1 million and the annual property taxes are almost $28,500.

As a 6-foot-4, 250-pound lineman with a 3.7 grade-point average at Trabuco Hills High School, Jim Farbaniec appeared to be a likely candidate for a football scholarship.

Four years ago, a wink on the World Cup time line, West Germany won the Cup and returned in triumph to a country that began to clamor for something else. They had won the World Cup, now they wanted the World Cup . At the time, it was hardly a secret that the American organizational efforts, begun in 1988 after FIFA had awarded the United States the 1994 World Cup finals, had been sluggish at best. The one contract landed by the organizers--a TV deal--had been rejected by FIFA.

Send in the clowns. Send in Sandy Gull. But send in someone. For the ninth consecutive time, the Gulls demonstrated home can be where the heart is, but it doesn't necessarily mean you'll win. They lost 7-3 Wednesday night to Indianapolis in front of 4,463 at the Sports Arena. In the Gulls' next game Friday, Coach Mike O'Connell might be wise to have Sandy Gull, the team mascot, take off his headpiece and hand him a stick. Not that the Gulls (24-31-7) aren't playing hard.
