Star-Studded CitiesA Dec. 21 SCORECARD piece raises the question of whether any city boasts three living legends from three different team sports who have the stature of Boston's Bobby Orr, Ted Williams and Larry Bird. You say that Chicago comes closest with Walter Payton, Michael Jordan and Bobby Hull, but you don't mention Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks. What an oversight! That makes four living legends from four different team sports. I would put Walter, Michael, Bobby and Ernie up against the three from Boston, plus a fourth of your choice, any day. Let's play three.TONY KOACHDeKalb, Ill.

I must be a little dense, because I just don't get it. What are you trying to tell us? On the one hand, you bemoan the brutality of pro football, and then, a few pages later, you present a glowing account of how Alabama's defense knocked three SEC quarterbacks out of games (Red Storm Rising). At least the pros get a fat paycheck for the risks they take.

Injured Players
You failed to identify the three players whose pictures appeared on your Dec. 7 cover illustrating Peter King's article about NFL injuries (The Unfortunate 500). As a Green Bay Packer fan, I know that the man lying across the bottom is Packer center James Campen, but who are the other two players?
