Here are some morsels to savor as you wonder why there can't be a football game on TV every day of the week:

• The Yankees and Cowboys have joined forces to form a stadium operations company. The two most profitable franchises in sports hope to teach other teams how to keep charging more despite flopping in the playoffs (or earlier) every year.

• Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is being investigated for allegedly spitting a drink in a woman’s face at a nightclub. Johnson claims that’s his version of chit-chat -- except he gives people the weather, not the news.

• Las Vegas has installed the upstart Rays as the favorite over the Phillies as the World Series begins tomorrow night. Of course, before the season Vegas installed Tampa Bay as 200-1 shots, so what do they know.

• A man pulled over in Manhattan for DWI reportedly offered two cops Jets season tickets and $2,000 apiece if they wouldn’t arrest him. (It didn't work.) Though later, the guy claimed he based his strategy on Brett Favre’s scouting report.

• Yankees P Joba Chamberlain was reportedly hassled by a Red Sox fan at a Nebraska strip club before he got busted for a DWI over the weekend. It seems Chamberlain was passionately defending the honor of Mystique and Aura.

• Florida QB Tim Tebow, who as the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner has a vote for the award, says he would pick Texas QB Colt McCoy if he had to make a selection today. An increasingly emotional Tebow then apologized for not voting in the past, and vowed that fans will never see a voter cast a ballot as hard as he will, and that he will push the rest of the voters just as hard.

• The 49ers fired coach Mike Nolan yesterday after a 2-5 start. Of course, by the standards of Bay Area NFL franchises, that passes for stability.

Jose Canseco has reportedly agreed to fight Danny Bonaduce in a Celebrity Boxing Federation bout in January. Apparently Canseco finally qualifies as a true Hollywood celebrity now that he has a drug arrest.

• The Russian athletic federation has banned seven female athletes two years each for manipulating their doping samples. Authorities became suspicious when they all submitted the urine of a Mrs. Helen Seinfeld.

• The NHL is reportedly considering a second team in Toronto. The hope is that would at least give the city a fighting chance to win the Stanley Cup.
