A Philadelphia resident who lives near Citizens Bank Park has set up an eBay auction for rain collected from the storm that caused Game 5 of the World Series to be suspended for 46 hours. Perhaps someone around here can auction off a can of sunshine from Tampa Bay.
Bad interview of the day
Disgraced track star Marion Jones, left, with Oprah Winfrey, was on Winfrey's show Thursday and sort of apologized for but still denied knowing she was taking a performance-enhancing drug.

Philip Hersh of the Chicago Tribune wrote, "Maybe, Marion, the problem is you have become something of a pathological liar."
