Does anyone but me feel sorry for Deion Sanders?  I mean sure, he's making
a ton of dough, but having to play for both the Braves AND the Falcons . . .

I think he has turned Fulton County Stadium into his own personal hell.
It just ain't worth the money.

                                   and still a fan (massochistic, ain't I?)

No, I don't.  He's got a lot of talent, but he's somewhat of a jerk
and has a bad attitude (at least for baseball).  No team with playoff
hopes can afford the risk of signing him.

I heard the following story.  Can anyone clarify, confirm, deny, etc?

In a game against the Chisox, Neon hits a weak popup, and begins walking
down to first.  Fisk throws his mask away, and yells and Neon, "Run, you
piece of shit!", or words to that effect.  True?  (Ya gotta love Pudge.)
