When Donald Trump announced a couple of weeks ago he wanted to buy the Buffalo Bills, many dismissed it as a typical publicity ploy by The Donald. Not true, he says. "I'm going to give it a heavy shot," Trump told the Buffalo News on Monday. "I would love to do it, and if I can do it, I'm keeping it in Buffalo. I live in New York, and it's easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place. " Trump says the only thing that could get in his way is for someone to come in with an overpriced bid. "I have a track record that's pretty much unparalleled," Trump said, "but that doesn't mean that I pay stupid prices.

The Ultimate Warrior, who died suddenly Tuesday in Scottsdale, Ariz., at age 54, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last Saturday and appeared on "Monday Night Raw" two nights later.

I've always found it difficult talking to jockey Julie Krone. She's so bubbly, so perky, so cheery. Nothing like the wife. I've been married for 31 years, so there are times when you have to talk, I guess, or at the very least, be told what to do. But I've just gotten into the habit of always saying, "Yes, sir," to make her happy.

It's Wednesday night in suburbia as 8,000 fans bustle into the Anaheim Convention Center for this, the pastime with a half nelson on America. Surfers and Cub Scouts, suntanned sorority sisters, old ladies puffing Marlboros and worn-out men with diamond pinkie rings have sold out the arena near Disneyland. The atmosphere is downright Vegas. The show: Superstars of Wrestling, three hours of bodacious camp that is part burlesque sport, part soap opera performed to bombastic rock music.

There were a lot of guffaws and criticism when WWE launched its WWE Network last month, mainly because of connectivity issues and problems accessing content. However, once those problems were corrected, there was only one thing left to say: The network is amazing, providing new shows and a plethora of classic footage for pro wrestling fans to enjoy, not just of WWE, but old fans of WCW, ECW and other defunct organizations. In short, the WWE Network has become the very model of a modern major online network, and with this being WrestleMania week, WWE will be unveiling a host of new shows leading up to the pay-per-view this Sunday.

A Bronx crowd of 56,018 Thursday night chanted "Paulie" and "One More Year," saluting what was the final career appearance for Paul O'Neill--and, perhaps, several of his New York teammates--at Yankee Stadium. Call it a last stand for an old guard at the storied park where this core group had contributed so dramatically and frequently to Yankee lore--and where they would do it again in improbable fashion in Game 5 of the World Series.

El Kobe, the legend continues. . . . As it was, so it is and, apparently, always will be, a 14-year career of swoops, plummets, admiration and scorn, leading up to last week's new chapter: Kobe Bryant as El Cid, the Spanish warrior, who supposedly told his troops to prop him up on his horse after he died and led a last charge that put their enemies to flight. Playing the first four games against the Oklahoma City Thunder in seven days with a sore knee, Bryant was an imitation of himself by Game 4 before reinventing himself as a defender/playmaker for Game 5 . . . helped by two days off. Happily for the Lakers, they had two more off before Game 6, when Bryant looked more like Kobe Bryant again, scoring 32 points.
