It's not about the Blazers of the NBA. It's not even about the Yellow Jackets of the NCAA. And it's certainly not about the Blue Jackets of the dormant NHL...

When it comes to outerwear, all that matters this time of year is the green jacket. Congrats to Tiger Woods for regaining the world number one ranking this past Sunday by winning the Masters, his first major title in nearly two and a half years. Tiger, long known for his spectacular drives, put the demons to rest with a legendary performance around the greens, which included a tournament-record-tying seven straight birdies in the third round. And he showed the world that while the proof isn't in the pudding - whatever that means - it just might be in the putting...

Forget about Arnold. With an NBA-best 11.5 assists per game, Phoenix point guard Steve Nash is the real Running Man. After all, he's been running up the score all season with the run-and-gun Suns, whose 110.5 points per game and 58-19 record are tops in the league. Still, for Nash to be taken seriously as a front-runner in the MVP race, he'd better start running down his opponents. Because the rundown here says that the 31-year-old's defense is - you guessed it - run-down...

Run puns aside, Nash is also quite the ladies man. His relationship with Elizabeth Hurley speaks to that. But it doesn't change the fact that he bears an eerie resemblance to ghoulish pop star Marilyn Manson...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, who were once called the Anaheim Angels, who were formerly known as the California Angels, will continue to play in Anaheim while phasing out their association with the city. Soon enough, they'll be just another LA team - at least on the surface. Then again, who's to say that a town built on superficiality won't prosper from a shallow relationship with a big-league franchise? And who's to say that LA isn't the City of Angels?

Just to clear things up, Houston Street is a major artery in the heart of the Manhattan grid. Huston Street, on the other hand, is a 21-year-old rookie pitcher for the Oakland A's...

Stop the insanity! We're barely a week into the regular season, and people are already talking stats. Like how Philadelphia's Pat Burrell (17 RBI) is on pace to drive in 393 runs and shatter the record by over 200. And how Ichiro (.464 AVG) is shooting for that elusive .500 mark in Seattle. Oh, and how Boston's David Wells (0-2) is on track to lose 46 games, which - naturally - would be a record. But seriously...

Analyzing a batting average, earned run average (especially for a reliever), or any other kind of projection seven measly games into the season is just plain silly. Would you lose sleep over a quarterback's passer rating three quarters into the NFL season? And would you even suggest that a running back with 30 yards rushing at the start of the fourth quarter in Week 1 might be slumping? I hope not. So keep your stats in check for at least a few weeks. And if you have to, take a number...

With 81 editions and 365 days in the books, is it pure coincidence that the DL is celebrating its first birthday? And is it simple chance that in the past five years, three players - Ichiro, Nomar and Todd Helton - have led the Majors with a .372 average? Rhetorically speaking, I'm Dean Christopher...
