Serena crushes Maria: Is that supposed to be a proxy for our discussion yesterday of whether you're a "Serena man/woman" or a "Maria man/woman?"
Crawford explodes: Who correctly predicted that Jamal Crawford would score 52 points... ever in his career – let alone last night in a Knicks win over the Heat? (5th-best scoring binge in Knicks history).
Wiz(?) rule(?) East(?): Don't look now, but the team with the best record in the East is... the Wizards, after they beat the Pistons last night.
I had the Wiz picked for 3rd in the East this season, but FIRST? For a Wizards fan, the thought is simply impossible, but we'll take it.
(And it's why Gilbert Arenas is the first-half NBA MVP and Caron Butler absolutely deserves to be an All-Star this season.)
Speaking of unlikely: Who the hell is Brandt Snedeker, and how is he leading at the PGA's Buick Invitational?
NFL: Which coach might make a good caretaker for the Cowboys job for a season or two before they want to promote Jason Garrett? Chargers D.C. Wade Phillips seems to fit the bill.
College Hoops: Officials admit that Duke got extra time in its buzzer-beating win over Clemson. (No! Duke getting a favorable call... at home? Say it ain't so!)
Senior Bowl Mania: Isn't this whole exercise a bit archaic, given that it's a draft showcase and given the number of juniors who enter the draft but aren't scouted this week? Top players to watch in today's showcase of senior talent:
Ohio St QB Troy Smith.
LSU WR Dwayne Bowe.
Cal WR Daymeion Hughes
Penn State OL Levi Brown
