2. THE NEXT STEP

Strat-O-Matic baseball game inventor Hal Richman has been inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. The Hall has many great athletes who actually played games; it is now honoring people who thought up ways to roll dice to recreate them.

3. GOOD MEDICINE

Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly was arrested for codeine possession early Friday morning. Police became suspicious when officers spotted some evidence and told him to "cough it up."

4. DON'T BRING HIM UP

A broadcast report says Florida International basketball coach Isiah Thomas is interested in the Loyola of Chicago job. His resume does not include a single reference from the fans of the New York Knicks.
