You may have noticed that the best way to sell something these days, whether it's a product or your very self, is to package it with a bit of attitude.Consider that the jersey of Latrell Sprewell, who got an involuntary paid vacation because he tried to give P.J. Carlesimo a finger necklace without a clasp, sells more than that of any other New York Knicks player. Meanwhile, David Robinson and Tim Duncan of San Antonio, both solid citizens whose only hook is sterling play, are thought of as weird or even worse, freaks, because they aren't weird or freaks and don't carry "attitudes."

NEW YORK -- Ten years ago, Steffi Graf was 19 and about to play seven wonderful matches at the U.S. Open that would bring her the title and complete a rare Grand Slam sweep -- winning the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same year.Yesterday, in her first appearance on the 2-year-old Arthur Ashe Stadium Court after a year's absence because of injury, Graf was just trying to make it to the second round. But she still looked like a young thoroughbred, her slim form seeming unfettered by any lingering restraints due to the left-knee surgery she underwent June 10, 1997.

S'long, Elian, y'all come back, y'heah? If the learned justices cannot agree about the late-term abortion, why should the rest of us?

Should attendance become a problem, the club could always retire Cal and hire Anna Kournikova to play third base.
