Your substitute Steve Springer asks, "Who is Marino talking to?" [NFL Rewind, Dec. 7] then he smugly states "Himself, really." No. If you can read and understand the structure of the English language you know that he is talking to the person who asked the inane question. He is talking to a journalist who had just asked a question that is journalism's equivalent of a bad snap. The job of the journalist is to provide the reader with an insight or comment from Marino that he didn't have.

People often criticize soccer for being un-American. The Galaxy has become about as American, or at least as Southern Californian, as you can get: They have a player (Jorge Campos) who takes vacations during the season, like Cedric Ceballos. They have a player (Eduardo Hurtado) who has flashes of brilliance, but who has not lived up to expectations, like Jim Everett or Elden Campbell. They experienced an epic "fold" in the playoffs, like the 1986 Angels. Their front-running fans have deserted them since they stopped winning, like fans of all Southern California sports teams do (except the Clippers, who never won anything)

Remember at the end of the movie "Bull Durham," when Crash Davis goes to Asheville, N.C., to hit his minor league-record breaking home run and no one calls The Sporting News with the story? And remember how only Crash and Annie Savoy knew it was a record? Real life, even in the minor leagues, is a bit different. Baseball America keeps track of all manner of records, and the latest edition contains a list of top active minor league players.

Seattle Mariner shortstop Alex Rodriguez hit for the cycle Thursday night, but it was an even bigger night for Pamela Altazan. She hit the jackpot. Altazan, of Cashmere, Wash., won $1 million because Rodriguez hit a single, double, triple and home run in a 14-6 victory over the Tigers in Detroit. A contestant selected before each game is awarded the grand prize if a Mariner should hit for the cycle in that game, and Altazan was picked.

He is the brightest star in the galaxy. But unfortunately for Floyd Mayweather Jr., he is stuck in a galaxy light-years away from the center of the boxing universe. Mayweather has journeyed to the top of his division at warp speed. He won the World Boxing Council super-featherweight championship last year at 21, has retained it three times and will attempt to do so again tonight when he puts his title on the line against Carlos Gerena at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center.

It started with a simple telephone call between two complicated men. Former heavyweight champion George Foreman called former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson several weeks ago to issue a challenge: Everybody wants to see us in the ring. Let's give them what they want and make a bundle of money doing it. Replied Tyson: Sounds good to me. But from that simple call, all sorts of complications have resulted.
