Donald Trump is suing a New York Times reporter over a book that claims he isn't a billionaire. Trump is seeking $5 billion. I guess that increases his chances of being right. Didn't Theo Epstein resign as Red Sox general manager, leaving Fenway Park in a gorilla costume so the media wouldn't recognize him? I heard he suddenly returned to the organization, only to resign again before the team could give him a new job title. And that he sneaked out of Fenway wearing a costume of the Empire State Building.

Penguins owner Mario Lemieux watched most of the team's 90-minute practice Monday, which made it no ordinary day for the Stanley Cup champions. The boss was in the house, and he clearly wasn't there to socialize after an 0-4 road trip. The coach wasn't very happy either. Dan Bylsma had scheduled a day off after two games in Florida in as many days. Instead he put his players through one of their longest practices of the season. Maybe captain Sidney Crosby said it best: When a team is slumping the way Pittsburgh is, with five consecutive losses and the NHL's reigning scoring champion not producing, a day off is a luxury.

The calendar is barely wrinkled, but already we know the identity of the athlete of the year for 1993.And of the MVP, too.And of the comeback player of the year as well.They are all he. Or him. Or, rather -- he is all of them.His name is Mario Lemieux, and he labors in a chronically underexposed cult sport whose nightly television highlights consist of swirling bodies, hysterically rising voices and goals that, no matter how hard you squint, you never really can see, even in slow-motion replay.

But those hopes were --ed last night before 17,783 at the Capital Centre as the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins completed an improbable comeback from a 3-1 series deficit by winning their third straight game over the Capitals, 3-1, in Game 7.The Penguins, who will face the New York Rangers in the Patrick Division championship round, managed to get only two shots past goalie Don Beaupre, but that was all that was needed.

Major league baseball, according to CBS, commences tomorrow with the Mets and Reds in the main game and the White Sox and Red Sox from "venerable Fenway Park" the backup (1-4:30 p.m.). Channel 11 will carry the American League game.The only change in the announcing booths is Greg Gumbel moving in for Dick Stockton as the play-by-play man on the second team and there's a certain amount of irony that Gumbel draws a White Sox game right out of the box: "Growing up, I was a Sox fan and used to go to 30 to 40 games a summer.

NEW YORK -- It can't be easy picking up and moving after 15 years, no matter what Bryan Trottier says.He earned four championship rings with the New York Islanders, married a Long Island woman, had three children. But to listen to him, leaving the Islanders and joining the Pittsburgh Penguins had all the raw emotion of checking out of a hotel. "That's the business," he said.Trottier has always been like that, shrugging his shoulders and looking forward to the next day, ever since he arrived as a peach-fuzzed rookie from Val Marie, Saskatchewan, just off the farm.
