MLB: News from N.Y.'s gossip pages: The POST's "Page Six" reports that the Yankees Fan Fest -- a seven-year-old tradition at the New York Coliseum -- "has been cancelled for mysterious reasons." The event raised money for various charities with Yankee autographs (N.Y. POST, 1/6). The DAILY NEWS' Rush & Molloy reported that a source said Cablevision Chair Charles Dolan wants to buy a piece of the Yankees. Spokespeople for Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner and Cablevision would not comment (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 12/23). OTHER NOTES: In L.A., Earl Gustkey notes that the ABL Long Beach StingRays have the worst attendance in the league and reports that if those numbers don't improve, the team could move to Long Island or Dallas (L.A. TIMES, 1/6). ...ESPN's David Aldridge writes that 76ers head coach Larry Brown and G Allen Iverson "aren't coexisting." Aldridge: "Would the Sixers deal Iverson if the price is right? ... Philly's ad campaigns, its team identity, its ticket base are all intertwined with Iverson. A trade would be hard to explain, harder to make up in sales" (ESPN SportsZone, 1/6).
