High and lows

By ANTHONY PEREZ and MIKE STEPHENSON

© St. Petersburg Times, published February 11, 2001


Highs

CHIP BAKER: When a bus driver for the Florida State baseball team collapsed, the assistant coach leapt to action, taking the wheel and likely saving the lives of many.

FREDRIK MODIN: Some questioned his spot on the World team for the NHL All-Star game, but his four assists proved this is a player on the rise.

RICK DUDLEY: The Lightning general manager swung two recent deals, adding Matthew Barnaby, 27, and Adrian Aucoin, 27, to the roster. Finally, the team has some players in the prime of their careers rather than the beginning or the end.

Lows

NASCAR: After ESPN helped put the stock-car sanctioning body into a position where it can charge $2.47-billion for a television contract, NASCAR has turned its back on its former partner, refusing to credential RPM2Night for Speedweeks. The claim that RPM2Night is not a news program is weak pandering to new partner Fox and a disservice to fans who depend on ESPN's programming for news.

POOR MICKEY: First it was the mess involving Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis. And now Mark Chmura, when asked what he was going to do to celebrate his acquittal of sexual-assault charges, says, "We're going to Disney World." What's next for the Big Rat, Mr. Simpson's Wild Bronco Ride?

TOE NASH: Five arrests in a year? Say it ain't so, Toe.
