"They come and they go, Hobbs; they come and they go." Robert Duvall to Robert Redford in "The Natural"DETROIT -- I always loved that line, but I never realized how true it was in sports until last week. While vacationing out West, I went to a jazz concert in a small California nightclub. Not long after I sat down, a man and his wife sat next to me. The man smiled and said, "How you doing, Mitch?"I froze. For the life of me, I couldn't recall his name. I fumbled; I apologized. I knew he was an athlete, but I could only stammer "Oh, hi . . . uh . . . " When he finally said, "You don't remember me?"

MINNEAPOLIS -- Someday, they'll exhale. Someday, days or weeks from now, the players and fans and everyone else who was there in the MonstroDome will recover from this hold-your-breath Series and break into a winter-warming smile.It was that good. It was that wonderful. It was that dramatic.It was hero Gene Larkin's bases-loaded single that won the 10-inning game, 1-0. It was Jack Morris come Commentaryhome simply refusing to lose, refusing even to give up a run.It was a third extra-inning game in the Energizer-battery Series, and the first time since 1924 any seventh game had gone past nine.
