Authenticated Thief

Workplace pillage reachs a new low. The classless .215 swindler ought to think of his mortality. link

The ball from the Los Angeles Dodgers' last championship, in 1988, belongs to Fred Claire, who was their general manager. Rick Dempsey had promised Claire that if he signed him as a backup catcher, he would catch the final out of the World Series and give Claire the ball. That is exactly what happened.

Dempsey said he hoped Mientkiewicz would not sell the ball. "It may be a priceless item, but who cares about the money?" Dempsey said yesterday. "It's a memory that will go to your deathbed with you."

Tournament Time

The Patriots put the finishing touches on a 14-2 regular season with a 21-7 victory over the San Francisco 49er's.

Nick Cafardo caught up with Coach Belichick after the victory.

"For what they've been through this year, I think you have to give a lot of credit to the players for their diligence, their perseverance, and for battling all the way through," Belichick said following a 21-7 win over the 49ers yesterday at Gillette Stadium. "It has been a long season and they played well enough today and we're happy with that. It's on to the playoffs."

How about a story about Corey Dillon landing forearm shivers to oncoming tacklers? Instead, Jackie MacMullan writes the tired story of his contract incentives.

He repeatedly has refused to acknowledge the perks in his contract, and that continued yesterday.

"The whole week all the talk was about the incentives," Dillon said. "I didn't want to focus on that. I didn't care if I did get it, and I didn't care if I didn't get it. I didn't want to blow it out of proportion.

"It's not like I was out there counting yards. Turns out I got it -- oh, well. It was not on my list of things to do this Sunday, to get 81 yards."


Was that lip service from a player going out of his way to adhere to the team-first policy of the Patriots? Probably. Count me among those who find it impossible to believe Dillon did not know he had reached that milestone on that 29-yard run. His actions suggested otherwise.
