b) Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Petrino.

2. THE GRIN REAPER

Larry Bird, to CBS' David Letterman, on the trademark smile of longtime NBA rival Magic Johnson: "My goal was to take three of them teeth home with me."

4. GIANT LEAP YEAR

"I don't recommend no one doing it," Harvey told Baltimore's WJZ-TV. "Trust me, they tackle you hard."
