•Terrell Owens took his Hall of Fame induction speech off-Broadway on Saturday. Which ceremony would you watch? Me, too. Good theater is good theater. Popcorn? Absolutely.
•Some sports fans believe that media people slant their coverage — and their Hall of Fame votes — based on petty grudges, on likes and dislikes.

Not so for the Pro Football HOF. Is personality a factor? Is there a swimsuit competition?
