Just call him Stan the ATM.

A monthlong online auction of hundreds of Stan Musial items — jerseys, World Series rings, harmonicas and more — brought in a whopping $1.2 million.

The late Musial’s estimated career earnings from 22 big-league seasons with the Cardinals: $980,050.

• At “Jerry Jones: Maybe I shouldn’t have hired the guy whose own son canned him.”

• At “Pittsburgh residents horrified to learn Ben Roethlisberger considers city home.”

Quote marks

• Jack Finarelli of, not surprised that Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe will play against the Broncos on Sunday: “Marijuana is legal in Colorado. The game will take place in Mile High Stadium.”

• Woodlawn (Ark.) High School coach Zach Branch, to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, after his team rushed for 723 yards and 11 touchdowns in last week’s game: “A lot of people call it caveman football.”

• Times reader Bill Littlejohn, after the Jaguars and Buccaneers both blew their chances of going 0-16: “The 2008 Lions got together and unscrewed some bottles of Thunderbird.”

• Brad Dickson of the Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald, on the World Series of Poker concluding the November elections: “ I think we all know which involved the most bluffing.”
