Highs and lows

By CHRIS COSENZA, BRUCE LOWITT, ANTHONY PEREZ and MIKE STEPHENSON

© St. Petersburg Times, published May 27, 2001


Highs

AL DAVIS: You may have lost your legal battle against the NFL, but you won the war for fans, forcing the NFL and its owners to open up their books. Any chance you could make a quick buy of a major league baseball team?

JOHN McHALE JR.: The arrival of the anti-naimoli presages the start of a better relationship between the Rays and Tampa Bay's baseball fans -- however many remain after the years of what Vince and Chuck LaMar have wrought.

USF: After many missteps of late, naming Lee Roy Selmon as athletic director puts the school on some firm footing.

Lows

NFL REALIGNMENT: Sure, you knew it was coming....and, yes, it looks like a favorable new division for the Bucs. But aren't you going to miss hating Brett Favre and Randy Moss?

SAN ANTONIO SPURS: They were supposed to give the Lakers the toughest test in the playoffs. Instead, they're one game away from joining the likes of Portland and Sacramento. Losing to a team on the verge of NBA greatness is no disgrace; getting swept is.
