JACK MCDOWELL and BILL GATES were dubbed "Losers" in this week's TIME magazine. On McDowell: "Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the ball park, he 'salutes' angry fans" (TIME, 7/31 issue)....The IHL Spiders are seeking a qualified candidate to be their first official mascot (Spiders)....DEION SANDERS reported to the Giants yesterday and played against the Marlins last evening. At a press conference, Sanders criticized the Dolphins for not making him an offer. Sanders: "If you really want to pursue me, you know my agent is Eugene Parker. Give him a call." When asked what the number was, Sanders replied: "Money. 1-800-MONEY" (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 7/25). In Atlanta, Len Pasquarelli reports that Marlins GM DAVE DOMBROWSKI tried to trade for Sanders last week, which could have enabled Marlins/Dolphins Owner WAYNE HUIZENGA to also sign Sanders to play football (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 7/25).
