You mentioned that McGwire finished in the top 10 of MVP voting five times, compared with Canseco's twice. However, you forgot to mention that Canseco won the award in 1988, while McGwire never did.

Terrell Owens is just another talented athlete who, after achieving his dream of playing big-time sports, thinks he's too special to have to behave like a professional (Big, Bad and Mad, Nov. 26). Can you imagine a carpenter dancing the boogaloo every time he drove a nail without bending it? Lie wouldn't be able to hold a job because driving nails is what he's expected to do, just as Owens is expected to catch passes. Until he can conduct himself with dignity, the fans who make his playing a game for money possible will perceive him as he presents himself: a jerk.
