Thought it was a weekend of big stories —- the Chargers beating the Broncos, Texas leapfrogging Cal and getting a Rose Bowl berth that would be so natural for a Pac 10 team, Victor Conte announcing that he’ll play the part of Mr. Drysdale in a West End musical version of “The Beverley Hillbillies”(songs by Ben Folds, story by Ben Elton) — surely there were none bigger than the Pistons’ Darko Milicic getting 14 minutes of playing time in Saturday night’s win over New Orleans?

(Larry, confessing to Darko that he, too, has no idea how Allen Iverson gets his hair like that)
