Blowup in the pits

In a CART Indy-car race earlier this month at Nazareth, Pa., an incident between a car driven by veteran A.J. Foyt and Jeff Andretti left Foyt out of the race and in a foul mood.

Long after the race Foyt walked down pit row and passed the pit of John Andretti, Jeff's cousin. He spotted an unidentified woman sitting there. Obviously still angered at the incident, Foyt proceeded to offer to her, in vivid terms, his view of Jeff Andretti's driving abilities.

Sitting calmly, the woman waited until Foyt's tirade was over, then said: "I believe you have the wrong Andretti."

Atlanta Braves first baseman Sid Bream, on his two-sport teammate, Deion Sanders: "He . . . ceases to amaze me."
