Hello, 'Melo

As you all know by now, the big news in sports media this Tuesday is the Wall Street Journal's announcement that it no longer will use honorifics in its sports articles.

But as Jason Gay points out here, where does that leave a certain large-headed Mets mascot?

Elsewhere in the sports world, the Knicks traded for Carmelo Anthony. Here is our coverage, including my column on the subject.

My version of the column in Tuesday's early editions asserted that the Basketball Hall of Fame is in Canton.

To clarify: It is not.

In other news, I spoke to underappreciated former NY athlete Kerry Collins Tuesday morning, and he told me he is leaning toward retirement. Nothing official yet, though.

Also: NBC has acquired the rights to the Belmont Stakes, unifying the Triple Crown races under one TV umbrella.
