For Browns fans, time has not healed. Art Modell's move remains an open wound. And even in death, he torments them. Modell, the late Cleveland owner credited with helping the NFL grow in prominence but whose decision to relocate his franchise to Baltimore 17 years ago obscures his accomplishments, is one of 15 finalists up for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Modell's case for induction - he was also a finalist in 2002 - could spark the liveliest debate in New Orleans on Saturday among 46 Hall of Fame committee members, who will select from four to seven new members on the eve of the Ravens meeting the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.

This summer in Canton, Ohio, yet another group will be inducted into the National Football League Hall of Fame. And again, Tommy McDonald won't be one of them. The 57-year-old former Eagles wide receiver caught an eye-popping 84 touchdown passes and collected more than 8,400 reception yards in his 12-year NFL career. Yet, although his numbers are better than many of the 12 wide receivers who have been granted entry to the Hall, McDonald has been curiously ignored. "Yeah, it bothers me," acknowledged McDonald, who received the Living Legend Award last night at the 88th annual Philadelphia Sports Writers Association dinner at the Hyatt Cherry Hill.

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. - The good part about being 95 years old is it beats the alternative, which is not being 95. Last November, though, Ed Sabol wasn't so sure about that. Pneumonia had put the NFL Films founder in a hospital bed for nearly a month, and his will to live was running on empty. "He turned to me around Thanksgiving and said, 'Why should I live? I'm going to be in a wheelchair,' " his daughter Blair said. "I said, 'Well, there's nothing wrong with needing a wheelchair at 95.' " But Sabol viewed a wheelchair as the final indignity of growing old. A former champion swimmer, he moved to the Arizona desert 20 years ago to spend his retirement playing golf and flying his plane, and now he can do neither.

When the Swiss vacation in their own country, they never go to Zermatt, or Lucerne, or St. Moritz, or any of the other places that see the bulk of Switzerland's foreign tourists. I've visited the country three times in recent years, and all of my Swiss friends have told me repeatedly that I have to see the Graubunden, the country's easternmost canton, because it's the part they most enjoy visiting. And so last summer, at the end of a long trip to Switzerland, I finally took their advice and made my way to the Graubunden and its Lower Engadine Valley, where everybody said you could find the most beautiful villages in the country.

NEW YORK - Even at a time of joy and celebration, there is sadness. Even when he is laughing and smiling, there are tears. Bittersweet? Definitely.

THE NFL WAS so impressed by LeSean McCoy's franchise-record 217-yard rushing effort in the snow, it asked him to take a drug test yesterday. Hey, the Hall of Fame got the jersey, cleats and gloves, maybe the league office wanted its souvenir in a cup. Well, no, not exactly. The test was random, had nothing to do with McCoy's performance in Sunday's 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions, in which he regained the NFL rushing lead, with 1,305 yards on 261 carries. But having to take the test was one of only a couple of things McCoy felt was at all worth mentioning, when a reporter asked him yesterday evening how he'd spent the day after the big day. There were interviews set up over the next few mornings with the usual national networks and shows, handled by McCoy representative Ishmail Kamara.

CHICAGO - C.J. McCollum remains intrigued with the 76ers even though they didn't request to interview him at the NBA draft combine. "I was [attending college] pretty close to Philadelphia, out in Bethlehem," the Lehigh senior guard said. "So I will be interested to see if they are taking a guard or a post player in this draft. " The organization's biggest needs are a post player and a backup point guard. However, one could argue that McCollum could be a solid addition to a team planning to make offseason moves via trades and free agency.
