PAUL DAUGHERTY COLUMN
Bonds keeps you awake 'till it's over
        There is one overlording presence in this World Series, one participant so compelling, he'll have you up past midnight watching. Without Barry Bonds, what else is there?

WORLD SERIES
Angels' Salmon upstages Bonds
        ANAHEIM, Calif. — Tim Salmon swung and connected, and suddenly all those years of unrewarded effort were worth it.

Angels' Rodriguez quick into record books
        ANAHEIM, Calif. — Francisco Rodriguez wasn't even a big-leaguer until five weeks ago. Now, he's joined Randy Johnson as the winningest pitcher in postseason history.

Sanders shines on Series' stage
        ANAHEIM, Calif. - Maybe Reggie Sanders needs the biggest stage, not just a big one. For all his postseason woes, Sanders has been good in the World Series.

Bad pitching steals Giants' momentum
        ANAHEIM, Calif. — They hit ball after ball out of the park. They scored more runs than they had in any other game this October. But that big offensive display wasn't enough for the San Francisco Giants to overcome their own poor pitching.

Giants' Rodriguez throws one pitch too many
        ANAHEIM, Calif. — All through the postseason, the San Francisco Giants had been able to rely on Felix Rodriguez. In Game 2 of the World Series, he threw one pitch too many.

SUNDAY SPOTLITE    (Index of Sunday stories)
NFL needs to fix Bengals mess
        Columnist Paul Daugherty says: It's time for the National Football League to stop enabling the Bengals. When the league mandated revenue sharing and a salary cap, it wanted all its teams to have an equal chance to win. It didn't mean to hatch the Bengals. But it has.

Bengals rake in money despite losing
        Not even an all-out boycott would have much effect on the Bengals' bottom line because NFL teams have two major revenue sources that don't depend directly on fan support.

Southern Miss 23, UC 14
        HATTIESBURG, Miss. - UC coach Rick Minter has seen the “enemy,” and it's the Bearcats, he says. Despite nearly doubling Southern Miss in every statistical category, the Bearcats lost 23-14 to the Golden Eagles at M.M. Roberts Stadium on Saturday.
