Take a Meander with Evander?

Too late, but could I interest you in shaking a pinky with Winky? Evander Holyfield packed up his fossil and left town last week. But appearing live and in living color Monday afternoon in Dallas will be undisputed junior middleweight champ Winky Wright. Wright, in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas, will be talking to kids and signing autographs at Park Place Lexus in Plano August 28 at 5:30 p.m. to help promote the BBBSNT's after-school program and the Park Place Dealerships' Celebrity Golf Tournament. Wright is 50-3-1, so he must be a good boxer. But with a name that doubles as a gadget play deep in Bill Parcells' bag of tricks, doesn't Winky just have to stay long enough to endorse Kinky? --Richie Whitt
