Highs and Lows

HIGHS

EDMONTON ESKIMOS: Members of the CFL franchise saved a woman who jumped from the fourth floor of a burning apartment building Sunday, breaking her fall. Teri Macleod, 24, escaped with a cut on her knee. Now that's teamwork.

KERRY JENKINS: The Bucs left guard broke a bone in his leg Monday against the Rams and was expected to miss about a month. Instead, Jenkins probably is going to play today. Apparently it wasn't a very important bone.

KEYSHAWN JOHNSON: Should he be criticized for his sideline tantrum with Bucs coach Jay Gruden? Of course not. Applaud him. He still wants the ball. Would you rather we had Randy Moss, who admits he takes it easy once in a while? Moss deserved every bit of the sideline blast by Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper.

LOWS

THE RAYS: Yes, they stunk up the place, losing more games than in any of their previous four seasons. But we shouldn't feel that bad. Think of the stink emanating from the clubhouse (with a $15-million higher payroll) of a team that was run by the daughter of a certain commissioner. Somehow it seems there's a kind of justice here.

INJURY TO LUIS GONZALEZ: The Diamondbacks outfielder separated his shoulder in an on-field collision, ending his season just before the team begins defense of its World Series title. A tough break for the Tampa native and one of the real good guys in sports.

FLORIDA STATE FOOTBALL: Sure it rained, but what kind of overtime effort was that? One offensive play for an interception; one defensive play allowing a 25-yard touchdown run. Cardinal sins by the 'Noles.
