TO: Terry Bradshaw, Fox Sports. FROM: Just a loser guy who will never have the chance to sing with a Beatle. The Super Bowl seems like a dream to me now. Did the Patriots' Adam Vinatieri really kick a 48-yard field goal to beat the unbeatable Rams? Why did I wake up yesterday morning craving a Pepsi? (I hate Pepsi.) And did I really hear you, Terry Bradshaw, sing the opening verse of "A Hard Day's Night" with Sir Paul McCartney? I wasn't dreaming. I saw you touch McCartney's knighted shoulder.

So much for being a team player. On its pre-game show Sunday, Fox presented a "behind-the-scenes" look at the Panthers and Falcons during the week as they prepared to play each other. Hanging with the coaches, watching practice, feeling the iron pump. Jay Glazer on the inside, being called "Glaze" by players. Great stuff, right? Terry Bradshaw, what do you think? "I didn't get a whole lot out of that," Bradshaw said as soon as Fox came back to the studio. Hey, but what about those guys showing off their intensity in the weight room?

TO: Paul Tagliabue FROM: Hyde and Lye Public Relations, LLP RE: Draft apology Good evening. I'm Paul Tagliabue, NFL commissioner. On behalf of the entire NFL family, I'd like to offer our most sincere apologies for last week's Monday Night Football broadcast wherein B-list actress Nicolette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives appeared in a towel, disrobed and jumped into the arms of wide receiver Terrell Owens. We were shocked - deeply shocked - to discover sex and tasteless humor incorporated into an NFL broadcast.

Chuck Noll left pro football yesterday with four Super Bowl rings and a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.Noll, after 23 years as Pittsburgh Steelers coach, leaves an unmatched legacy of four Super Bowl championships, but his success on the field obscured his many other facets -- he can fly an airplane, pilot a boat, savor a fine wine and quote Emerson.It was typical of Noll that when he was asked at a news conference yesterday about the acrimonious departure of such stars as Terry Bradshaw -- who didn't mention Noll's name when he gave his induction speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame -- and Franco Harris, he quoted Emerson.
