Two sport athletes, like myself

I think of myself as a two sport athlete because of my important contributions to not only a coed intramural C-league softball team, but also my advanced beginner/low intermediate volleyball team, The Mini Ditkas.

And while it's rare for there to be two-sport pro athletes, The New York Times sheds some light on professional baseball players who also compete on the statistical gridiron in fantasy football.

There are some good details in there, including a story about how Johnny Damon traded LaDanian Tomlinson to Terry Francona one week in '04, so Francona could beat Curt Schilling.

"It was O.K.," Damon told the Times. "We all wanted to beat Schilling."
