  1. Morning Tweet: Help, Buddha! Tiger's in trouble again!

    Mar 24, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    An impressive amount of time dedicated to Tiger Woods during Letterman’s monologue last night. In addition to what you see to the right, there was this: “Tiger Woods is a little rusty of course. But even if he doesn’t win the Masters, his wife Elin will get a green jacket. It will be made out…

  2. Tavistock Cup has a media dress code? This will end well

    Mar 23, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    It’s the second or third item down in Mike Walker’s Press Tent notes column today, but it’s a great one: At least two reporters have refused to cover the Tavistock Cup because they are being forced to wear shirts with the corporate logo and colors. Yep, officials of the annual event in Orlando, played…

  3. Autistic teen has perfect NCAA tourney bracket … your picks still suck

    Mar 23, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    So how are your brackets doing? (Put down the gun. Seriously, it’s only a game). You may not be in the mood to hear this right now, but Alex Herrman, a 17-year-old from the Chicago area, has picked every game correctly so far on his CBS Bracket Challenge entry. Forty-eight winners, including Northern Iowa over…

  4. Cornell men's basketball team vs. Rubik's Cube

    Mar 23, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Thanks to this video sent to us by a Cornell grad, we now know two things: The Cornell men’s basketball individual record for solving a Rubik’s Cube is 2 minutes, 40 seconds. And the Cornell men’s basketball team is smarter than whatever team you picked in your office pool to meet Kentucky in the Sweet…

  5. Tuesday Blogdome: Ari Fleischer leaves Team Tiger … that was fast

    Mar 23, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Ari Fleishcher Resigns From Team Tiger. After airing Kelly Tilghman’s six-minute interview with Tiger, the Golf Channel’s fine analysts gathered together to discuss their reaction. (Talk about a forgiving bunch with the exception of John Hawkins.) “Kel” reveals that behind the scenes Team Tiger told her Ari Fleischer is “withdrawing his services” from Tiger Woods…

  6. Trans-Atlantic rowing fail; men row 2,499 miles, need 2,500

    Mar 23, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    “We did it, Marge! We rowed 2,500 miles across the Atlantic, and beat that jerk Flanders. Now all we have to do is cruise the remaining few feet to shore, and …” “Dad! Look out for that coral reef!” “Doh!” It must suck to spend three months rowing across the ocean in a trans-Atlantic race,…

  7. Injury to Marin boy sparks latest debate on metal bats

    Mar 23, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    My objection to metal bats is that I hate how they sound, both when players hit the ball and when local hooligans batter my car. But as it turns out, there have been recent renewed efforts to get rid of them for safety reasons, and I can’t say I disagree. On Sunday, Gunnar Sandberg, a…

  8. Time to take the Tiger Woods SATs

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    You may think you’re familiar the alleged Tiger Woods text messages recently released by porn star Joslyn James; but how well do you really know them? The May SATs are not far off, so why not hone your skills now, just as tiger is honing his for the Masters? Following the jump are a few…

  9. Best sports mascot ever?

    Mar 23, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    I’m still not convinced that this is the best sports mascot ever invented — not while Blowie is still around — but it has to be in the top five. Here are the Tijuana Zonkeys, a Mexican minor league pro basketball team named after that city’s tradition of painting donkeys to look like zebras for…

  10. Morning Tweet: Unadvertised ponies

    Mar 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    What better way to describe the month so far? Avatar does not win the Academy Award for Best Picture, Northern Iowa beats Kansas, the health care bill passes … unadvertised ponies in the elephant parade of life. Last night in downtown Manhattan, folks waited in the rain to see pachyderms head through the midtown tunnel…

  11. Italian baseball team names itself after Tommy Lasorda, will soon have to let out uniforms

    Mar 22, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Just as VIto Corleone took the name of his home town in Italy and made it infamous in the U.S., a baseball team from Italy did just the reverse, naming themselves after their mentor and idol, former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda. Make no mistake; playing for the Tom Lasordas carries with it an awesome responsibility.…

  12. Actually, Lance Armstrong has a point here

    Mar 22, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    While sweeping up the debris from last week’s brawl between Lance Armstrong and Tony Kornheiser, I found a few quotes that may be of interest to those who only read the Cliff’s Notes version of their radio meet-up. Here’s the backstory on what led to the trouble, and here’s our original post on Armstrong’s visit…

  13. Hot Tub Time Machine: Marbury, Chinese bring back the '80s

    Mar 22, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Much commotion today over Stephon Marbury being named MVP of China’s professional basketball All-Star Game, as he scored 30 points and by all accounts saved what was a boring affair with a lot of no-look passes and general Starburyness. More interesting me, however, were two things: 1. In China, Marbury has an interpreter. I thought…

  14. Monday Blogdome: Golf Channel mesmerized by Tiger's Buddhist bracelet

    Mar 22, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Tiger Woods’ Buddhist Bracelet the new Livestrong band? Tiger Woods spent 600 seconds Sunday taping interviews. Though each interviewer was afforded limited time, they each tried to ask Tiger some of the questions many of us wanted to have answered. Kelly Tilghman of The Golf Channel asked many similar questions and received many similar, scripted…

  15. Dubai's ridiculously elaborate horse track open for business

    Mar 22, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Even though at last report the Dubai government had about as much money to its name as Lenny Dykstra, that nation has still just opened the world’s most elaborate horse playground; the Meydan Racecouse. If features a mile-long grandstand that holds 60,000 spectators, a rooftop pool, and the world’s largest LED screen (sorry Jerry Jones).…

  16. Tiger Woods ready for his big comeback … in bed

    Mar 22, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Sorry, but that’s the current hot Intrawebs meme, and I have no control over such things. To play, you take everything that Tiger Woods says and add “in bed” at the end. Fun for the entire family, and it sure makes his interview with ESPN and The Golf Channel more entertaining. I guess I can’t…

  17. Morning Tweet: Do the mid-major mambo

    Mar 22, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    So, how are your brackets holding up? Sadly, nothing can save mine … they were machine-gunned like they were trying to advance on the Marines in last night’s episode of The Pacific. I’m in three pools, and only one person in all of them picked Cornell to reach the Sweet 16. We’ve completed two rounds,…

  18. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: Things to do in Buffalo when you're bored

    Mar 21, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There is nothing more depraved than a Mountaineer on a boredom binge. I wonder how funny these West Virginia University teammates think their dorky antics are now that someone has uploaded a video of them dancing to Haddaway’s “What is Love?” for the world to see. Probably not real funny at all. As an added…

  19. Local columnist rips Tiger for being a bad Orlando resident

    Mar 21, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Mike Bianchi will not stand idly by any longer while Tiger Woods continues to sully the pristine reputation of the city of Orlando, by, you know, continuing to be an intensely private person and stuff. In his column published yesterday in the Orlando Sentinel, Bianchi goes after Woods for, among other things, treating Orlando as…

  20. The Gus Johnson Soundboard is the best, Jerry, the best

    I can pretty much guarantee that I will not be getting anything else done today after discovering the Gus Johnson Soundboard. Say what you want about the often over-the-top CBS college hoops analyst, but Gus Johnson’s manic enthusiasm for the game is unparalleled and he bring a passion and intensity to the sports broadcasting game…
