    The outrageous outfits and tabloid tales guaranteed Dennis Rodman fame long after he finished running with the Bulls.

    He was in Mexico about five years ago on a midnight run for tacos — the fun often started for Rodman around midnight — when a group of girls approached and started screaming his name.

    An amused Rodman turned to his agent and marveled, “Dude, these girls never saw me play basketball.”

    JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Tiger Woods stepped from behind a microphone, thankful to be done with a short interview that felt like an intrusion. He took 23 questions, most of them about his golf, a few others about his left leg, then walked off without looking at anyone.
    “That’s why you guys listen,” he muttered under his breath, “and I play.”
