              Cardinals 1B MARK McGWIRE has been named The Sporting
         News' '97 Sportsman of the Year (TSN)....TAMEEKA MESSIER,
         the 23-year-old woman who says she was badly injured last
         month when Patriot QB DREW BLEDSOE and OL MAX LANE "dove off
         the stage of a Boston nightclub into a crowd of patrons,
         filed a lawsuit against the players yesterday" (BOSTON
         GLOBE, 12/11)....ERIC LINDROS appeared on the "Late Show"
         with David Letterman.  Lindros, after Letterman asked about
         the "violence" in the NHL: "Everyone's been talking about
         this violence.  It's grown men, playing at a high tempo and
         it's very spirited.  There are no angels, so let's just
         leave it at that" (CBS, 12/10).  In Philadelphia, Les Bowen
         writes that Lindros "turned in a solid effort [on Letterman]
         in what might have been his biggest off-ice performance." 
         The appearance "closely followed the debut of a national IBM
         commercial, Lindros's first such exposure" (DAILY NEWS,
         12/11)....MSNBC's KEITH OLBERMANN had Comedy Central's CRAIG
         KILBORN on "The Big Show."  Olbermann played "5 Questions"
         with Kilborn, with the first question, "What's the most god-
         forsaken place on the East Coast?"  Kilborn: "Secaucus, New
         Jersey."  Olbermann: "No, the correct answer is still
         Bristol, Connecticut."  The last question was "11:00pm ET:
         Daily Show, Big Show or SportsCenter?"  Kilborn answered the
         Daily Show, but the correct answer was "None of the above." 
         Kilborn: "Is 'SportsCenter' still on?  You know what I
         watch, call me quirky, I watch the CNN/SI show and that Fox
         Sports -- they're doing a heck of a job" (MSNBC, 12/10).
