NEW YORK -- The hottest new stock offering of 1993 is a company run by a football player. If the market prices hold, Lawrence Taylor, the star linebacker for the New York Giants, stands to make millions on an investment of a few thousand.It is hard to tell whether the amazing performance of All-Pro Products Inc. reflects the popularity of Mr. Taylor or the excesses of a bull market that has gone wild. Probably it is a little of both.All-Pro, which hopes to make money in the very different businesses of video games and sports drinks, went public Nov. 9 at a price of $5 for a unit, consisting of one share of stock and a warrant to buy another share.

The former New York Giants linebacker also was indicted on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and sexual abuse and criminal sexual act in the third degree.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Linda Taylor stood in the runway, clutching a pair of her husband's shoes, as the New York Giants ran off the field. Black suede tassel loafers.She had seen him for a moment at the door ofthe dressing room and waited for him to be helped to the car. She would drive."He can't put them on," she said of the shoes.Players streaming off the field didn't know how bad it was. Players usually don't. They're so involved with their own jobs, they see little. They're so involved with their own mortality, they feel little for someone else.

GEORGE Young goes to his grave today, but the moment that keeps coming back is eight years ago, and the death of a fellow named Denny Wisner, and the telephone ringing in the kitchen and it was George and his wife, Lovey, calling from a distance of 200 miles and three decades. "I didn't know you followed Baltimore anymore," I said. The two of them got so upset at that. "Baltimore," they said, "is our home." George had been running the New York Giants for years by then, and taking them to championships, but never mind.

PHILADELPHIA - Greg Gumbel and Phil Simms must be doing something right. Unlike the lightning-rod role that Dennis Miller filled this season on "Monday Night Football," Gumbel and Simms do their jobs efficiently and without controversy. No one has called or e-mailed, complaining that they can't stand either of the lead NFL broadcasters for CBS Sports. An estimated 80 million viewers will be listening to Gumbel and Simms tonight as they describe the New York Giants-Ravens Super Bowl. In their three seasons together on CBS, Gumbel and Simms have clicked.

ATLANTA -- On Monday, Dick Vermeil threw cold water on the first suggestion that Tennessee Titans defensive end Jevon Kearse was the second coming of Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor. "I don't want to offend anybody," the St. Louis Rams coach said, "but to me there was only one Lawrence Taylor, and you better play a few years before you get put into that category." By yesterday, in his fourth day of Super Bowl interviews, Vermeil was happy to play the media game. "Kearse? He's a curse, no question," Vermeil said in perhaps his best ad-lib of the season.

NEW YORK -- Has Merlin Olsen traded in those tickler bouquets for a blow gun armed with some very pointed darts?Well, after hearing his commentary during CBS's Giants-Phoenix game Sunday, we must say the man is going through a metamorphosis. Olsen took out the gun and aimed it at the biggest cat on the field -- Lawrence Taylor.After discussing Taylor's post-Philly freakout "47 people quit" remark with play-by-play man Dick Stockton, Olsen -- unlike assorted tapeheads and pen-toters who applauded Taylor's spiel -- made one heck of a point.

Along with the tabloid coverage and lawsuits, the best thing about being notorious has got to be doing movie cameos. It's easy work, and besides, when someone's tainted reputation precedes him or her, it's hard to be accepted as another character anyway.There are exceptions, of course. Take debutante turned revolutionary turned socialite Patty Hearst, currently in John Waters' "Pecker." She started out as a novelty cameo diva for Waters, but has managed to parlay it into an actual career.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The story is unattributed but nevertheless accepted as gospel.On the occasion of Ricky Watters' very first carry in the NFL, against the New York Giants no less, the San Francisco running back untangled himself from a pile of bodies at The Meadowlands, high-stepped back to the huddle and told his 49ers teammates, "They can't stop me." While that may have been a slight exaggeration, it was no lie.As a rookie, Watters ran all the way to the Pro Bowl. Sidelined for three weeks by a knee injury this season, he nevertheless rushed for 950 yards and Saturday tore the Giants defense to shreds with an effort that established several postseason records.
