SAILOR OF THE WEEKCharger coach Dan Henning met America's Cup champion Dennis Conner this summer, and Henning was so impressed with Conner's confidence that he bought Conner's book, No Excuse to Lose. Last Saturday, Henning gave his team a pep talk, quoting extensively from Conner's book, which stresses tireless preparation. "Everybody thinks Dennis has a big ego," says Henning. "Even he says he has a big ego. But he says, 'I have a big ego because I'm good, and if I have a big ego, I have to live up to it.' A lot of these players have big egos, but if they want to have big egos and not be losers, they have to live up to it, too." The final on Sunday from the Dawg Pound: San Diego 24, Cleveland 14.
