We've been at this Page 2 thing for as long as you can remember . . . well, as long as we can remember, anyway. But, as Karen Carpenter once said, we've only just begun. On our third birthday, old-timer Jim Caple looks into the future for a peek at what you'll be reading on Page 2 over the next century.

Tailgate Tour Rodman's Next Life
As Page 2's Tailgate Tour visits Columbus, Eric Neel discovers that only a chosen few -- such as sousaphone player Andy Geiger -- are allowed to dot the 'i' in Ohio. But Eric converts to Buckeyeism, anyway.
So Dennis Rodman . . . You've just ended your latest flirtation with an NBA comeback. What are you going to do next? Steve Woodward has suggestions, including hard "Worm" time for Hillary and Liza.

THE DAILY QUICKIE
The Daily Quickie says Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance has nothin' on Jennie Finch and her new double-play partners. Plus, a LeBron Letdown in Cleveland and a candidate to replace Joe Pa. (Think 'Skins.)


Even if Shaq and Kobe are trying to get along this week, their recent public spat won't soon be forgotten. On the Entertainment Scale, it's right up there. But does the Lakers' feud measure up to the bad blood on our list of the most memorable teammate grudges of all time?

10]  Marcus Williams vs. Bill Romanowski
First came the fight during a Raiders' preseason practice, when Romanowski broke Williams' eye socket. Then came the lawsuit, filed by Williams in Alameda County Court. There's more to come in this little dispute.
9]  Michael Westbrook vs. Stephen Davis
Another practice session, another fight. This time, apparently, the fisticuffs had been a long time brewing. Once they began, local TV cameras picked up the brawl so the world could see Westbrook pounding his Redskins' teammate.
8]  Jason Kidd vs. Jim Jackson
Maybe it was because Kidd accused Jackson of selfishness on the court for the Mavericks. Maybe it was because singer Toni Braxton came between them. Either way, Dallas ended up trading both of them in a matter of months.
