And we'll be swamped with paper detailing Darryl Strawberry's latest jailing. In fact, here's the October 25 violation report filed by Florida corrections officials against the ex-Yankee slugger.

2) A week after setting the NHL record for career wins, Colorado Avalanche goalie Patrick Roy was popped on domestic violence and criminal mischief charges, as this police report shows.

Cops responding to the Roy home discovered that the enraged athlete had ripped two bedroom doors off their hinges during an argument"over in-laws." Released on $750 bail, Roy is scheduled for a November 7 court hearing. (2 pages)
