    eBay item of the day

    Pigskin parking

    Now we know what the ultimate football fan should be driving.

    The NFL and the United Way are auctioning a 1999 Dodge Avenger, customized to look like a football. Regular car shape, mind you, but it's brown with laces on top, commissioner Paul Tagliabue's signature on the side and, yes, football leather interiors. The car, which was used to deliver official game balls from Wilson's Ohio factory to last year's Super Bowl in Atlanta, has 2,240 miles on it. That's 3.92-million yards. Check:


    Super Bowl heroes: Where are they now?

    Ottis Anderson

    Ten years and one day after his Super Bowl XXV MVP performance in Tampa, former Giants running back Ottis James ("O.J.") Anderson is participating in today's Super Bowl coin toss ceremony. On Jan. 27, 1991, Anderson carried the ball 21 times for 102 yards and a touchdown, but more important he was the key to the Giants' record 40:33 possession time in their 20-19 victory over Buffalo.

    Of his 14 seasons, his best were his first three in St. Louis (1979-81), when he combined for 4,333 of his career 10,273 yards. A former star at Miami, he was inducted into the Florida Sports Hall of Fame in 1991. Anderson, 44, recently has done player-relations work with Steiner Sports, a marketing and sports collectibles company in New York. He runs a charitable foundation in New Jersey. -- SHARON GINN

    Obscure player of the day

    O.J. Brigance

    There are Ravens who played for a football team in Cleveland that moved, but there is just one who played for a team in Baltimore only to see it move.

    No, not the Colts, but the Baltimore Stallions of the Canadian Football League.

    That man is O.J. Brigance, a special-teams player and backup linebacker who needed five years after graduation from Rice to get into the NFL.

    But look at him now. Though Brigance has taken the long road, he has reached the pinnacle of a journey-filled career even if he awaits his first start in 70 games.

    Brigance, 6 feet and 236 pounds, graduated from Rice and began his NFL ... er, CFL career in 1991 with British Columbia. He moved on to Baltimore (the Stallions, that is) in 1994 before making his NFL debut in 1996.
