Notes: New Hall of Famer Young became a world traveler wire reports

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Steve Young made it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and he picked up some nice souvenirs along the way.

"Literally, that's how I saw the world," said the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who was elected to the Hall on Saturday along with Dan Marino, Bennie Friedman and Fritz Pollard.

Young said Saturday that one of the thrills of his career was being able to visit cities like Berlin, Tokyo, London and Barcelona for exhibition games.

"You were just looking for a free vacation," Marino chimed in.

Friedman, also a quarterback, was one of the NFL's biggest draws from 1927-34. Pollard was the first black head coach in the NFL and a running back who led the Akron Pros to the fledgling league's 1920 championship with an undefeated record.

Reading the T.O. leaves

Sports astrologer Andrea Mallis sees something in the stars for Philadelphia Eagles star Terrell Owens.

Mallis, who is a sort of official astrologer for the Oakland Athletics' radio postgame show, said that Owens faces a challenging Saturn aspect (the planet of limitation) to his Mars (physical energy) while trying to come back early from leg surgery.

"It should be fascinating to watch his role, however limited, as Saturn tends to delay, deny and restrict," she said. "Much to his chagrin and dismay, it looks like his chart may render him a non-factor -- or worse, he can re-injure himself. (He) may be dismayed if he is not utilized enough, as Mars in Capricorn opposes his Saturn in Cancer on Super Bowl Sunday -- sort of a cosmic double whammy."

Mallis advised Owens to watch for "excessive physical strain and exertion, annoying ego conflicts."

"Not the most positive forecast for T.O.," she said.

Astrology, like other forms of prognostication, can be hit or miss.

A week before last year's Super Bowl, Mallis that the halftime show "should be rather ethereal, filled with the exotic, bizarre and glamorous" -- not much of a stretch, based on the past ones. But she also said that "confusion can reign; lots of replays may be needed when strange alignments occur."

Sure enough, Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" became one of the most replayed TV clips of the year.
