There's not much excitement in this town of 7,700, across Lake Pontchartrain about 45 minutes north of New Orleans. There might occasionally be a rowdy party in the ballroom at the Holiday Inn on a Saturday night, but otherwise things are quiet. There are no big corporations with boardrooms filled with people obsessed by profit margins, and that suits Steve Rosenbloom fine. Rosenbloom, 55, and his wife, Shelly, who have two young children, have lived in Covington since 1991.

What flies between an athlete or owner and his/her significant other/others, theoretically, is none of anybody's business. Derek Jeter break-ups are best limited to double-play situations near second base. "Dennis Rodman on the rebound" is an announcer's call, not life after Carmen Electra.

Steve Rosenbloom, the 50-year-old son of the Rams' late owner, Carroll Rosenbloom, said Tuesday his father would never have moved the team. "I saw where Georgia (Frontiere) said if Carroll were alive he wouldn't have waited so long (to move the team)," he said. "That's not true. My father made a commitment when we agreed to move the team to Anaheim. And he would have done something with that commitment. He would have made the grass greener there, not looked for greener grass elsewhere.

Steve Rosenbloom, 44, sits at his home in New Orleans, talking on the phone with an old sportswriter friend from his Baltimore days. Steve Rosenbloom is by no means an unhappy man. He has a 2-year-old son, Jonathan, by his second wife, a New Orleans woman, with whom he is happy. His sons, 10 and 14, from his first marriage live nearby with their mother. He sees them "all the time."

Jackson played against Chamberlain for seven years and coached Jordan through his six championship seasons. "Wilt changed the game, the rules, but he didn't inspire fans or bring them to basketball the way Michael did," Jackson said.

Dan Shaughnessy in the Boston Globe, exulting over the Red Sox's recent series sweep of the Yankees and the Patriots' victory over the New York Jets: "We are New Englanders. New York is all things rude, evil, powerful and loud. It takes our best, laughs, and never looks back. It dismisses us. That's what's so infuriating. We hate New York, but Gotham doesn't give us much thought at all. "And that is why [Sunday] was one of the greatest days in the history of New England."

NFL television analyst John Madden is buying a new bus for next season but the one he's replacing is hardly Kramdenesque, according to Richard Sandomir of the New York Times: "[It includes] three TVs, including one in the bedroom, which is dominated by a queen-size bed and desk with swivel chair; a sofa and four cushy leather chairs; a galley with a microwave to cook high-cholesterol food, and a refrigerator stocked with Dr Pepper, which he endorses (so don't ask for Diet Coke), and a satellite

Mike Lupica in the New York Daily News: "Bill Parcells walked away from the Jets, and you want to say he walked away from football for good, except that he is a coach and even the greatest coach of them all, Vince Lombardi, somehow found his way back to the sidelines. "Lombardi retired from the Packers, came back with the Redskins, coached one more season. He only stopped because he was dying. . . .

Bill Lyon in the Philadelphia Inquirer, on the Eagles' 20-10 playoff loss to the New York Giants: "They are the faucet that won't stop dripping, the door that always sticks, the window shade that won't stay down. "For the flummoxed Eagles, the Giants remain the question for which there is no answer. . . . You get the feeling that if the teams played each other 10 times, the Birds would lose nine times. Oh wait, they already have."

Remember two months ago in Orlando when the Lakers' Shaquille O'Neal intercepted an inbounds pass in the closing seconds of regulation and raced downcourt for a tying dunk? The Lakers went on to beat the Magic in overtime. Now Magic Coach Doc Rivers reveals to Orlando Sentinel columnist Larry Guest that, for a fleeting instant, he actually had the wild idea of running out on the court and tackling O'Neal.
