    Mar 2, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    In news that was no doubt leaked from Tiger’s camp itself, the Associated Press is reporting today that Woods has completed a week of in-house addiction therapy in Arizona and is back in Orlando, hitting the course in preparation for his return to competitive golf. Still no word on when that might be, but it’s…

  2. White House: Obama did not call Tiger Woods

    Mar 2, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Hold the phone, America; it seems that President Obama did not call Tiger Woods to offer encouragement prior to Tiger’s big press gathering last month. But Bill Clinton did, sort of. In a recent Golf Digest story, author Jamie Diaz referenced an unnamed source who said that Woods received calls from both President Obama and…

    The NCAA Men’s basketball tournament is only two weeks off, which means it’s time for the Oregon Urology Institute’s annual reminder that a less populated world is a world in which you don’t have to wait in line so long at Starbucks. Here’s the institute’s campaign, which they have down to a science: Come in…

    Sports Illustrated’s Peter King not only gives us news of the mundane comings and goings in the world of the NFL, he also does the Lord’s work with stories such as this one.

    Charlie Brown implored his baseball team not to go home even during a flood, but as far as I know he never shoveled snow. Here’s the Maryland Terrapins, proving why they should be considered a contender in the ACC, regardless of talent. Outfieders positioned atop giant snow banks always = awesomeness. Following the jump is…

    Comments Off

    Why Shouldn’t Cherokee Player Refuse Redskins? At the NFL combine today, Sam Bradford, who is 1/16 Cherokee, was asked if he would prefer the quarterback-bereft Redskins not draft him. Bradford replied, “no.” Earlier the same day he had said, “I’m not going to address that issue,” when the subject was broached. Doug Farrar of…

  9. Tiger Woods having sex addiction therapy delivered these days

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    OK, our story so far: Tiger Woods completed his super special pressless conference in Florida on Feb. 19, and then took a private jet to Arizona, where supposedly he checked in to The Meadows in Wickenburg for another round of sex addiction therapy. But the National Enquirer, which watches Tiger with a giant telescope like…

    Sex addiction: Real, or just so much hokum? If anyone’s qualified to give an opinion it’s Steve Phillips, the former ESPN analyst and Mets GM who had an affair with 22-year-old production assistant Brooke Hundley, while both were employed at ESPN. Phillips tried to end the relationship, and Hundley sent a letter revealing all to…

  11. Miguel Starks robbery case goes beyond stupid, enters realm of ultra special stupid

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    You may have read here on Sunday that Citadel quarterback Miguel Starks was arrested along with three others in connection with an armed home invasion robbery in Charleston, South Carolina. But what you may not know is that the victim was, wait for it … one of Starks’ assistant coaches. Yes, really. Would I kid…

  12. Tiger infidelity a plus for sponsors in China

    Mar 1, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Tag Heuer may have removed Tiger Woods from all of its advertising in the U.S., but there’s a reason that the Swiss luxury watch maker hasn’t bid him adieu completely. Other countries don’t necessarily think of the Tiger Woods scandal the same way that we do. Take China, for instance. The Chinese can’t get enough…

    Mar 1, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Just as Al Michaels will always have “Do you believe in miracles?” as his signature broadcasting moment, now Bob Costas has a quote to cement his place in Winter Olympics lore. Like the first moon landing and Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show, it shall ever remain as a television moment that defined a generation.…

    Mar 1, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    And so it ends. Hard to believe that the Winter Games are over, but then again, I’ll be reliving them for several nights to come. The featured performer in my night terrors will be Mr. Michael Buble, who thrilled the crowd during last night’s closing ceremonies by performing while dressed as a Mountie, while female…

    What kind of day would it be without a trip around the ‘tubes to see what’s going on in the Life and Times of Tiger Woods? A very boring world where there would be little reason for dragging your worthless butt out of bed, I would say! So, brace yourselves, we’re going to hit it…

  16. Albert Pujols isn't a big fan of one of his nicknames

    Feb 28, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols has been known by many nicknames throughout his storied career: Prince Albert, Phat Albert, The Machine, El Hombre, Poo Holes (okay, maybe not so much with that one), among others. But Pujols is not a big fan of the “El Hombre” moniker. In fact, he has requested that people…

  17. Man, why don't beer trucks ever crash by my house?

    It must have been a dream come true for the students at Virginia Tech. A beer truck crashed outside Cassell Coliseum before the Virginia Tech-Maryland basketball game, dumping beer everywhere and turning the campus into a colossal beer bust of epic proportions. Nah, just kidding. The truck actually just ran over a fire hydrant, rupturing…

    Trinity College’s Baset Chaudhry, the number one ranked collegiate squash player who achieved an unwanted level of notoriety after taunting his opponent, Yale’s Kenneth Chan, during their match last Sunday, has many regrets. Video of the unsportsmanlike incident quickly bounced around the internets like a Dunlop Max Blue squash ball (hey-oh! that’s topical!), forcing Chaudhry…

  19. Thankfully, Brad Childress doesn't have to sing for his supper

    Feb 27, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    If he did, he would look much more like Karen Carpenter rather than the oft-mentioned Gerald McRaney a/k/a Major Dad. See, Karen Carpenter was a singer from the ’70s and…she was…ah, nevermind. How about Keira Knightley instead? Does that reference work a little better for you young punks? Well, does it? Moving on, thanks to…
