MAGICAL CHOICE: In Orlando, Josh Robbins noted Pepsi has "released a limited-edition soda can" that commemorates the Magic’s 25th-anniversary season. The 12-ounce sodas "recently arrived in retail stores in Central Florida, and the cans feature the team’s 25th-anniversary logo." The backs of PepsiCo's delivery trucks in Central Florida "will display an image of the limited-edition can" (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com,10/8).

Marshall "would face a fine for doing so -- which Marshall himself said he was anticipating." But an NFL spokesperson yesterday said Marshall is "not being barred from entering the field" wearing the cleats (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/10).
