I had dinner with Georgia Frontiere , where the Rams' owner chose to tell me about each of her seven husbands — four too many for me to make a newspaper deadline and still explain to the people of Los Angeles how she had just won approval to move her team to St. Louis. I hopped into a waiting limo in Oakland, expecting to find Al Davis , but got a pair of Raiderettes instead. So I never did get around to meeting with Davis to discuss the possibility of the Raiders returning to L.A. Former super-agent Michael Ovitz sent a martini to my hotel room and had Tom Cruise and Jerry West call to talk football and the prospect of bringing the NFL back to town.

NEW YORK - While Seattle and Denver were gearing up for Super Bowl XLVIII last week, the owner of the St. Louis Rams was making some dramatic news on the other side of the country. Rams owner Stan Kroenke quietly purchased 60 acres of parking lot between the Hollywood Park Racetrack and the Forum, land that could be used for an NFL stadium. Kroenke, a billionaire, has been unsuccessful so far in hammering out a deal to stay in St. Louis, so it raised a lot of eyebrows when he made this move.

He's the money man behind St. Louis' bid to land the Rams, but to many in Los Angeles and even St. Louis, Stan Kroenke might as well be The Invisible Man. Unlike Peter Angelos, the colorful Baltimore Orioles owner who has spoken openly about his attempts to purchase a minority share of the Los Angeles Rams, Kroenke's pursuit of the team has been as private as the twin-engine jet he owns. The Columbia, Mo.

If there's one great truth about the National Football League, it's that its hunger for schemes to manipulate politicians and fans into filling its owners' pockets is limitless. Now there's a new entree on its plate: The owner of the St. Louis Rams has acquired a parking lot in Inglewood that might, just might, be a good place for a pro football stadium. You remember the St. Louis Rams, don't you? They were the Los Angeles Rams until after the 1994 season, when they were drawn from L.A. (metro area population 11.2 million then)

The owner of the St. Louis Rams has bought a large piece of land in Inglewood that potentially could be used for an NFL stadium, multiple individuals with knowledge of the transaction have told The Times. Within the last month, billionaire Stan Kroenke bought a 60-acre parking lot located between the Forum and Hollywood Park, according to individuals who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on behalf of the buyer or seller. Wal-Mart originally owned the land but sold it after failing to get public approval for a superstore.

The press conference was over, the one-on-one interviews had been completed, and away from the public behind a draped-off area guarded by security, Ram officials began to relax. Stan Kroenke, the newest Ram of all after agreeing to purchase 30% of the team, had spent the preceding two hours saying all the right things and looking very much like the proper businessman he is. But now Kroenke could not contain himself.

NEW YORK - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday that just because Stan Kroenke, owner of the St. Louis Rams, recently purchased 60 acres adjacent to Hollywood Park, it doesn't mean Kroenke plans to relocate the Rams to the Los Angeles area. "Stan is a very large developer on a global basis; he has land throughout the country and throughout the world," Goodell said at his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference. "He has kept us informed of it. We're aware of it. There are no plans, to my knowledge, of a stadium development.

Ram President John Shaw Wednesday emphatically denied a report that the Rams have agreed to sell a minority interest in the team to Columbia, Mo., businessman Stan Kroenke. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, citing an unnamed source, reported today that Kroenke could buy up to 40% of the team, a share worth about $60 million, in a deal that would apparently pave the way for the Rams to move to St. Louis. The source told the newspaper that "this is an agreement, not a proposal."

The Dodgers received "more than 10" opening bids for the team by Monday's deadline, according to a person familiar with the sale but not authorized to discuss it. As the bankers handling the sale evaluate the bids, prospective buyers can evaluate whether to join forces. In addition, because the bankers can waive the deadline at their discretion, new bidders could emerge. St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke has explored whether to bid for the Dodgers, two people familiar with the sale process said Monday.

There's a place for him, somewhere a place for him. . . . Hopefully. Now we can only pray for the day the Nuggets trade Carmelo Anthony, so we don't have to hear about his large backside anymore. If last season's LeBron James coverage was crazed, he was the franchise player of franchise players. Melo's just Melo, talented and personable, but forever young. Before Chauncey Billups arrived to tell him which way was up, Anthony made the playoffs once in five seasons.
