AL DAVIS, THAT OLD JOKESTER.

Byline: TOM HOFFARTH

Apologies up front, knowing a few days have elapsed since the fog bank of information already floated down this way from the Bay Area, but upon further review ... Lane Dunder-Mifflin Kiffin?

For laughin' out loud, is the source on this story someone from The Onion?

Has the thunderous conquest of cheering died down yet on the USC campus?

Is Kiffin done reading his sixth-grade report on how happy he'd like the world to be?

If this hiring ends up doing severe damage to Kiffin's psyche, could Oakland Raiders boss Al Davis be accused of child abuse?

So now, in your sports death pool, do you have Davis or USC's football program going first?

If the latest Reggie Bush-is-a-cad story on Yahoo (the Web site with the explanation point) is based on classified info originating from a guy who just got out of jail and is being investigated by the Feds for extortion, how does that weigh into the equation?

Besides, can't one of Bush's bizarre family members take this alleged damaging tape down to Miami International to have the suitcase scanners erase it along with all the other Michael Vick footage?

When does the newly buff Serena Williams start her tryout for an Arena Football League team?

So, the Clippers have passed on Iverson and now appear to have passed on Jason Kidd ... because they've already got enough good passers on the roster?

The Dodgers go ahead and sign Fernando Tatis to a contract ... so they can relive the Cardinal sin of that two-grand-slams-in-one-inning hurt he put on Chan Ho Park many moonshots ago? Why not just rehire Jack Clark as a hitting coach?

Is Chicago QB Rex Grossman given as much of a chance of guiding his team to victory in next Sunday's Super Bowl as the New York Giants' Jeff Hostetler facing Buffalo and future Hall of Famer JimKelly in Super Bowl XXV? Or like Washington's Doug Williams going up against Denver and future Hall of Famer John Elway in Super Bowl XXII? Say, didn't Hostetler and Williams pull out victories in those games?

What are we supposed to believe about the sketchy information coming out about the injuriness of Peyton Manning's carpometacarpal joint? Thumb's up or down?

How much could Tom Brady really be hurtin' if Gisele is there to kiss his ouchies?

Is there anyone left on the Cincinnati Bengals' roster to size for orange-striped cuffs?

In regards to the Pro Bowling Association's Motel 6 Classic in Las Vegas this weekend: Of all the hotels in Vegas, Motel 6?

You know you're gonna be stuck watching ice skating with your wife this afternoon, right? And in trying to explain the new scoring system to her, it's just gonna cause you more grief, correct? Doesn't the lawn need reseeding?
