2C THE PALM BEACH POST FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1997 Two Cents' Worth r-66- TODAY IN HISTORY; In 1976, O.J. Simpson of the Buffalo Bills rushed for 203 yards and a touchdown in a 45-27 loss to the Miami Dolphins. WHO AM I? I set an NFL record in 1971 by rushing for 247 yards for the Los Angeles Rams in a 45-28 victory over the New Orleans Saints. STAT OF THE DAY: The Raiders have 1,410 rushing yards this season, 1,157 of which are by Napoleon Kaufman. To have a 19-yard run on a broken hip is pretty good." GUS FREROTTE, Redskins QB, on Sunday's show of courage. 1 White Sox turn to Marlins' Manuel People in sports PAGE mi Baseball Impromptu iambic pentameter Palm Beach Post Wire Services The new chairman of Salt Lake City's Olympic organizing committee chose a unique way of introducing himself to the IOC on ihursday in Lausanne, Switzerland. He recited a poem. With International Olympic Committee president Juan Antonio Samaranch and his deputies listening, Robert Garff delivered the following verse by an unknown author: 'Tis human fortune's happiest heightsto be a sptrttlmelodwus, lucid, poised and wholesecond tn order of feltatyto walk with such a soul ' "That's absolutely new for an executive board meeting," IOC director general Francois Carrard said. TODAY'S ANSWER: Willie Ellison. By Dan Graziano Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Jerry Manuel had to figure working for Jim Leyland and Felipe Alou would pay off. Thursday, it did. The Chicago White Sox named Manuel, a 43-year-old Loxahatchee resident and Florida Marlins bench coach, their new manager. That makes two Marlins coaches who have left to manage other teams within the past month. "I wasn't surprised so much, but I was definitely happy. Once I started managing in 1990 at the minor-league level, this was a dream of mine, and today it came true," said Manuel, who coached six seasons for Alou in Montreal before joining Leyland and the Marlins in 1997. Manuel cried when he heard the news, remembering his father who died last month, less than two weeks after the Marlins won the World Series. "My life in 1997 has really been a roller coaster of emotions," Manuel said. Manuel interviewed for manager of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, but they hired Marlins pitching coach Larry Rothschild. Among the names Manuel beat out for the White Sox job were Bucky Dent and Larry Parrish. "I knew that the interviews went well, and when they asked me to come (to Chicago) with mv wife. I figured the chances were pretty Rockies sign Kile The Associated Press DENVER Pitcher Darryl Kile, one of the most coveted free agents, signed a three-year contract Thursday with the Colorado Rockies. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Kile, 29, was 19-7 last season for the Central Division champion Houston Astros. The 19 victories marked a career high, tying him for second in the National League. His 2.57 ERA ranked third. The Rockies and Astros had been the top contenders in a bidding war for Kile that had gone on several weeks, but the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks as well as San Diego, Texas and Baltimore also made offers. Kile, a right-hander, visited Denver on Nov. 22, when the Rockies offered him a three-year deal worth nearly $22 million and dropped an option for a fourth year when Kile expressed reservations. The Diamondbacks reportedly offered Kile $19.5 million for three years, while Houston came up with a three-year, $18 million contract with an option for a fourth season or a $2 million buyout, bringing his total guarantee to $20 million. On the air Rothschild, he did that B Schedule: The Marlins will release their 1998 schedule this weekend, but some things about it are known. The Marlins will make just one trip to California, Aug. 7-16 to face San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Florida will open with the Chicago Cubs at home on March 31, then host the Milwaukee Brewers in a four-game series before taking their first road trip of the season, a seven-game trip to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Series shares: Each member of the Marlins who was voted a full World Series share will receive $188,467.55, a 13 percent reduction from the 1996 New York Yankees' World Series share. The Marlins voted 35 full shares, including every member of their post-season roster as well as pitchers Pat Rapp, Rick Helling and Mark Hutton, all of whom got traded by the end of the regular season. Los Angeles Dodgers: Todd Worrell, who had 30 or more saves for the Dodgers each of the past three years, announced his retirement. Worrell, 38, a three-time All-Star, was the Dodgers' career saves leader with 127. St. Louis Cardinals: Shortstop David Howard and the Cardinals agreed to a $1.8 million, two-year contract.
