Now that baseball's over, other sports (thank Pete Rozelle) come to center stage. Lessons we learned from Week 9: Maybe Tampa Bay isn't as good as everyone thought. Maybe Cincinnati isn't as bad. And never, ever bet on a rookie quarterback to save the Arizona Cardinals.
So with a slightly freakish two MNF games to go (thanks to the 'Occupied' sign on Pro Player Stadium yesterday) L.I. Slim has stretched his lead over Kansas City to four games, by virtue of a bloody 7-5 showing (17-8 overall). KC comes in at an Astros-like 6-6 to move his tally to 13-12.
To close, a headline you always expected you'd see: "Charles Barkley arrested for throwing man through bar window."
