Among the sports collectibles offered in the Upper Deck Authenticated catalogue is the airplane formerly used by the Kings. The price: $5 million.

"The jet is signed by the team. A must-have for the ultimate Kings fan!" Signed by the team? At $5 million, it's a steal.

Jay Leno, host of "The Tonight Show" on NBC, didn't start out to be a comedian. "I wanted to have a career in sports when I was young, but I had to give it up," he said. "I'm only 6 feet tall, so I couldn't play basketball. I'm only 190 pounds, so I couldn't play football. "And I have 20/20 vision, so I couldn't be a referee." * Add Leno: "NBC is the network that years ago brought you the famous Jets-Raiders game that was cut short for the movie 'Heidi.' Remember that one?

Dan Barreiro of the Star Tribune of Minneapolis fondly recalls the many sports events at Chicago Stadium over the years--even an NFL championship game in 1932: "(In 1932), the Chicago Bears beat the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans, 9-0, at Chicago Stadium. A blizzard made it impossible to play outdoors, so the game was moved (inside) and played on an 80-yard field." The old stadium is scheduled to be demolished and replaced by the United Center across the street.

Just 36 hours after a gang brawl erupted on its fantasy streetscape, Universal CityWalk was calm Sunday, as children frolicked in a fountain, people munched away in outdoor cafes and couples strolled hand-in-hand. The only sign that there had been fighting two nights earlier at the simulated urban promenade adjacent to Universal Studios were television news crews that had gathered to see what effect the scuffle might have on attendance. The answer was none, according to security officials.
