Brett Favre admitted to the NFL this week that he did leave voicemails for Jenn Sterger, but denied sending the former sideline hostess any lewd photographs when he was a member of the New York Jets, Fox Sports reported Sunday. The NFL is investigating the allegations against Favre and is attempting to speak with Sterger, who hasn't decided yet whether she will talk to the league.
Phil Reese, a spokesman for Sterger, told The Associated Press on Friday that Sterger is "strongly considering" speaking with NFL officials conducting the probe.
"We have an ongoing dialogue with the NFL," Reese said. "What we've been talking about is having Jenn come in. Like I have said, she is strongly considering it. Ultimately this decision is hers and hers alone."
Reese told ESPN's Kelly Naqi that Sterger's group has hired a team of former FBI investigators to assist them. Reese did not say why the investigators were hired or what role they were playing QC

Lawrence S. Ritter R.I.P
Lawrence S. Ritter, whose pioneering oral history ''The Glory of Their Times'' recounted the baseball world of the early 20th century, died Sunday at his apartment in Manhattan. He was 81.
He had a series of strokes in recent years, said Marty Appel, a friend and former public relations director of the Yankees.
In the early 1960's, when reel-to-reel tape recorders were bulky and unwieldy, Mr. Ritter traveled 75,000 miles in a five-year period to hear the voices from an era when roughneck ballplayers came out of farms and small towns with battered suitcases, when baseballs were dead and spitballs very much alive.
Mr. Ritter located old-time baseball stars living in obscurity and asked them of a time when their deeds were the stuff of headlines. ''The Glory of Their Times: The Story of the Early Days of Baseball Told by the Men Who Played It,'' published by Macmillan in 1966, became a classic of baseball history , nice long life , He will be missed QC

SO , All we have to do is win four more games," he said, standing in the locker room of the unlikely National League champions, "and this would be the greatest feeling in the world
one of these days, they're going to wake up in the middle of the night and wonder, "How did we get here?"
One of these days, they're going to look around at the World Series flags flapping in the breeze and ask, "How did we do this?"
One of these days, this impossible dream is going to hit home, and they're going to think, "This can't be real. This can't be happening."
Oh, but it's happening, all right. The St. Louis Cardinals are heading for the World Series. But not just any World Series.
This World Series is an official baseball miracle, the culmination of a story that defies even their own imagination.
"It's hard to explain, man," said reliever Octavio Dotel on this unforgettable Sunday night, the night his team finished both this NLCS and its unfathomable World Series journey with a typically insane 12-6 win over the Brewers. "It's really hard to explain.
"I go to bed sometimes," Dotel went on, "and I sit in bed and I say, 'Wow, we're in this spot, and I can't believe it. I can't believe where we are and how we've been playing for the last month.'"
Well, of course he can't believe it. Who could possibly believe it? Not those of us who have watched it. Not even the men who have been out there making it happen.
The Ariel Brut Cuvee may have been dripping on this wild, euphoric night. But how were they supposed to comprehend this -- 30 wins in their last 43 games, roaring from a million games behind, clinching on the last day of the season AFTER they'd finished playing, upsetting the Phillies, unseating the Brewers, dodging squirrels in the batter's box?
"It's crazy where we are right now," said Dotel, standing there with a champagne bottle in one hand and his "lucky squirrel" in the other. "I don't know how to explain it to you. But we're in the World Series, man. And I hope my squirrel don't let me down."
The lucky squirrel got tossed into the Cardinals' bullpen in Game 5 of the NLDS in Philadelphia. It's been traveling around with them ever since. Now, it turns out, there are many more miles to travel -- and not just for that squirrel.
This will be the 18th World Series in the history of one of baseball's marquee franchises, but none of those other 17 World Series rides went quite like this.
This wasn't a comeback. It was a reincarnation. How do you wind up in the World Series when you're 10Â½ games out with 31 to play, when you're 8Â½ out in September, when you're 7Â½ out with 20 to play, when you're three games out with five to play? There are teams that have come close to pulling off a finish that wild. No team has ever done ALL of that. Trust us. We've checked.
So it's no wonder that, on the night the champagne flowed and the World Series tickets were punched, the magnitude of what just happened here still hadn't registered. How could it? They were too busy doing it to think about it.
Asked Sunday night if he'd been able to digest what his team had accomplished, Tony La Russa shook his head and answered: "No, because one of the keys is, you can never allow yourself to look back, because that's a distraction."
"We remind ourselves of that every day," La Russa said. "Even today, we went around to different players and reminded them it's always about maintaining your edge for that next game you play. So if even for a minute you do either one -- look ahead or look back -- you lose that edge."
So there was no time, even on this day, for them to ask: "How did we get here?" Which means we'll just have to ask it for them.
How do you wind up in the World Series when your best starting pitcher (Adam Wainwright) disappears for the season because of injury before you've even played a spring-training game?
How do you wind up in the World Series when you lose 25 games in your last at-bat â€¦ and 13 walk-offs â€¦ and 11 agonizing games you've led in the ninth inning or later?
How do you wind up in the World Series when, amidst all that, Albert Pujols breaks his wrist â€¦ and Matt Holliday visits the disabled list twice â€¦ and Chris Carpenter starts out 1-7 â€¦ and, well, you get the picture?
And, to top it all off, how do you wind up in the World Series when, in the League Championship Series that completes that journey, you need your relief pitchers to get more outs (86) than your starters (73)?
"I know that wasn't the plan," Carpenter said. "But those guys came in and absolutely dominated this series."
Those relievers racked up a fabulous 1.88 ERA in this NLCS. And let's just say it's a good thing -- because only one other team in history -- the 1979 Pirates -- ever won a best-of-seven postseason series in which the bullpen got more outs than the starters.
And only one other manager in history (Boston's Terry Francona, in the seven-game 2004 ALCS) ever made more pitching changes in any series (30) than La Russa made in just six games in this series (28).
And NO other team in history had ever won a postseason series without a single starting pitcher getting an out in the sixth inning or beyond -- a dubious honor locked up in this game when starter Edwin Jackson couldn't make it past the second inning.
"It's hard to believe that, man," Dotel said. "I mean, wow. No starting pitcher went more than five innings in this series, in six games against Milwaukee. You've got to think about that, because it's unbelievable. In six games, we got more outs than the starting pitchers. That's unbelievable. I mean, that can't happen. I don't know how to explain that to you guys.
"But the main thing is, we're here," he said. "We're going to the World Series. And I'm very, very excited to be in the World Series â€¦ me and my squirrel."
It was fitting, then, that they needed all the squirrel luck they could muster in this game -- not to mention all the thunder that Pujols, Lance Berkman, David Freese and this offense could muster.
When Freese fired a ballpark-silencing three-run homer over the left-field fence in the first to give the Cardinals a 4-0 lead, you might have thought this was actually going to be easy. But then Jackson went out and served up THREE bombs himself, to the first eight Brewers he faced. And next thing the Cardinals knew, this was a 5-4 game and Miller Park was in full rocking, rolling, bedlam mode again.
But up stomped Pujols to lead off the third inning -- and tomahawked a shoulder-blade-high fastball into the second deck in left, watching every inch of its flight. It was a statement kind of swing in what has been a statement kind of postseason for Sir Albert. It launched a big inning that stretched the Cardinals' lead back out to 9-4. And the Brewers would never get closer than four runs again.
Still, with Jackson done after six outs, the manager had to keep waving for those apparently tireless relievers of his, one after another after another, for 21 humongous outs. And that's enough to exhaust any manager -- even a noted pitching-change addict like Tony La Russa.
Asked afterward how long this game had felt to HIM, La Russa looked at his wrist -- which didn't have a watch wrapped around it -- and deadpanned: "It's gotta be past 1 o'clock in the morning, isn't it?"
Uhhh, about quarter past 11 was more like it, but welcome to his world. Even when it was 12-6 in the ninth, he said, "I was sweating bullets."
He wasn't alone, though. On nights like this, in some ways, it doesn't matter what the score is -- not when human beings begin to contemplate what's at stake if they can just get that 27th out.
And that's especially true if you happen to be the man who is going to be handed the baseball and asked to wrap up that 27th out.
"Early in the game, I honestly thought about that," said Jason Motte, the closer his manager still can't bring himself to officially anoint as The Closer. "But then, as it was coming down toward the time, I said, 'Crap, I may actually have to pitch.'"
But Motte laughed as he uttered those words, because who wouldn't want to pitch the inning that would send his team to the World Series?
He's another astonishing story on a team full of them. Spent three seasons in the minor leagues as a catcher. Rode his electric arm to the big leagues within two years after trying out pitching for a living. Then rode the bullpen Ferris wheel round and round, hurt his shoulder, almost became a starter, and didn't end up in this closer's gig until the final days of August. QC

ST. LOUIS -- David Freese refused to let the St. Louis Cardinals' magical season end Thursday night, hitting a dramatic 11th-inning home run for a 10-9 victory over the Texas Rangers. The exhilarating, breathtaking victory evened the World Series at three games apiece, with Game 7 scheduled tonight at Busch Stadium.
The Rangers twice were within one strike from winning their first World Series in franchise history. They instead were left watching in utter disbelief as the Cardinals came back in the ninth and 10th innings, setting up Freese's heroics in the 11th.
BOX SCORE: .Cardinals 10, Rangers 9, 11 inn. (Series tied 3-3) PHOTOS: World Series gallery
"You had to be here,'' Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said, "to believe it.''
Freese rescued the Cardinals in the ninth inning with a two-out, two-strike, two-run triple off Rangers closer Neftali Feliz, tying the game at 7-apiece. It Lance Berkman's turn for heroics in the 10th, hitting a two-out, two-strike, one-run single off Scott Feldman, tying the game at 9.
And, then, it was Freese once again, hitting a leadoff homer to center field off reliever Mark Lowe on a 3-and-2 pitch. It sent the Busch Stadium crowd of 47,325 in utter bedlam. Freese crossed the plate, and was mobbed by his teammates, ripping his jersey off in excitement.
"The crowd, almost too numb too move, refused to leave their seats, almost in disbelief what they witnessed. It was the first time in World Series history that a team ever rallied twice from two runs down in the ninth inning or later.
"It's not that easy to win a world championship,'' Rangers manager Ron Washington said, "as we found out tonight. Give them credit to the Cardinals for taking the game away from us.
"I expect us to respond [tonight].''
The Cardinals, 10 1/2 games out of the wild-card race on Aug. 25, three out with just five games remaining, saved their greatest drama for what will be remembered as one of the most thrilling games in the Cardinals' rich history.
"That defines our team, that game, how we kept coming back,'' said Freese, who grew up in the St. Louis area. "It's like a dream.''
Yet, the dream won't be fulfilled, Freese said, unless they win the World Series.
"That's what I want,'' Freese said. "I hope everybody is smiling 24 hours from now.''
This will be the first time since 2002 there will be a seventh game of the World Series, already a series that will long be remembered.
"It was unbelievable,'' said Rangers pitcher Darren Oliver. "One of the greatest games ever.''
And certainly, as it's turning out, one of the greatest series.
"It should be a fun game, looking forward to it,'' Rangers infielder Michael Young said. ""It's been a classic series. We'll get an opportunity to make it better with a Game 7.''
Still, the Rangers know it never should have gotten to that point. Not with closer Neftali Feliz, who had not blown a save since Aug. 6, with a 0.87 postseason ERA. Not with a two-run lead in the ninth, another two-run lead in the 10th, and needing just one strike.
""We thought we should have had it couple of times,'' Young said. "Anytime (Feliz) is in the game , we feel like we're going to win. We felt like we had the game won, so it's obviously tough. But we're a good team for a reason.''
Said La Russa: "This guys is a legitimate 1-2-3, and they're shaking hands. Our club does a real good job of just trying to get something started. And once they get something started, the other club worries.''
Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, who hit a two-run homer in the 10th that looked like it would be the game-winner, still had difficulty digesting how it all unraveled, just what he had witnessed.
"Playing the game, you're going to experience new things,'' Hamilton said. "And this is definitely an experience.''
One that forever will be etched in memory, with both teams refusing to let their season end.
"These are the best two teams in baseball,'' Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson says, "so neither of us are just going to give up.''
The Cardinals certainly proved they're not going to go away quietly. Now, the Rangers have to prove they can bounce back, with a Texas-sized state of pressure resting on their shoulders.
It's the stuff dreams are made.
"Growing up, you see stuff like that happen,'' Freese said, "those become memories. As far as being part of this comeback, it wouldn't be as sweet if this group of guys weren't with me. This is cool to have this group doing this kind of stuff.''
Yes, just like playing whiffle ball in the backyard, dreaming of becoming a hero.
"Only when you're a little kid and you're out there,'' Berkman said, "you don't have a bunch of reporters and fans that are ready to call you a chocking dog if you don't come through.
"So when you're a kid, you don't realize what a big moment that is QC
