Sports shorts

Three quick observations about the sports news du jour:

* New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre announced today that he's retiring from professional football -- the exact same announcement he made 11 months ago. My guess is he changes his mind about a month from now and signs with a team desperate for a field general and willing to fork over a bundle of money.

* It takes a special kind of talent in professional basketball to score 127 points against a dismal team - and lose. Leave it to the Knicks - beaten 144-127 on Tuesday by the Golden State Warriors, who were 17-35 going into the game.

* A suggestion to the folks who pick each year's inductees to the National Baseball Hall of Fame: Resolve to never, ever, ever vote for a player who has tested positive for steroids. It may mean fewer plaques on the walls in Cooperstown, but at least the dignity of the institution will be intact.
