The league wanted the Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame receiver to take part in the post-game ceremonies, with the world watching, at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on Feb. 5. Berry said yes and hung up, agog.

Doug Williams today may have taken history's longest and slowest walk down an aisle to a barber's chair.But then Williams had about the most hair of any of the 996 young men who reported, along with 148 women, to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis to begin Plebe Summer. The six-week training period at the school has been compared to boot camp."I've seen men go faster on their way to death row," said academy barber Steve Plemens as Williams finally sat down.Plebe Summer began today with medical examinations, uniform fittings and the issuing of equipment, not to mention the often traumatic severe haircut.

The league that seems to always get its way and exudes a certain arrogance while doing so? Or the corporations that have had a monopoly on running television into your home and raising your rates after you're hooked?
