Kids Ask

Is left wing Brendan Shanahan of the Detroit Red Wings related to coach Mike Shanahan of the Denver Broncos?

No. But they are both champions.

Last June, Brendan helped Detroit win the Stanley Cup for the second season in a row. The Red Wings beat the Washington Capitals four games to none. Mike coached Denver to its first Super Bowl championship in 1998. The Broncos defeated the Green Bay Packers, 31-24.

Birthday Blowout!

S.I. For Kids is celebrating its 10th birthday this year. We asked athletes to tell us about their favorite birthdays.

``My best birthday was when I turned 12. My brother Craig, and I each got motorbikes. Craig is two years younger than me, but our birthdays are close.

I still remember those motorbikes. They were the best birthday presents ever!''

Ken Griffey, Jr.
