Thursday's This 'N That

-As it has been mentioned numerous times on the blog, Tiger Woods returned yesterday and defeated Brendan Jones in the first round of the Accenture Match Play Championships. Tiger started out going birdie-eagle, and never really looked back from that point. It will be real interesting to see how he fares at his next tournament, wherever that may be. Once he gets back into the rhythm of being on tour he is going to be even more dangerous than he was in the past.

-Rasheed Wallace picked up his 16th technical foul of the year last night. He will be suspended by the league for the game Friday at Orlando for reaching the sweet 16 mark. I highly recommend checking out the video that I linked above, just to see him launch a towel out of a ballboy's hand into the stands. I can only imagine what the ballboy was thinking.

-Tony Parker is on a roll. Parker led San Antonio past Portland at home last night without Tim Duncan or Manu Ginobili. There is a lot of talk around the league about Deron Williams, and Chris Paul being the top 2 point guards in the league, but I have think that Parker needs to be included in the conversation. Plus, he gets to go home to this every night. HELLLLLLOOOOOOOO!

-Alex Rodriguez homered in his Spring Training debut yesterday. However after the game he was spotted driving away with his cousin Yuri Sucart. Yes, the same cousin who reportedly supplied the Yankees slugger with steroids from 2001-2003. Good PR move A-Rod.

-Even with Kevin Garnett out, the Celtics should never lose to the Clippers. But that's exactly what happened last night. Zach Randolph scored 30 points, and did not take a hamburger break during a key stretch in the 4th quarter. With Garnett and Brian Scalabrine already out with injuries, I'm sure Danny Ainge was thrilled to find out that Paul Pierce dislocated his thumb during the game. Apparently x-rays were negative, and Pierce should not miss much time, if any at all.


-Anyone up for a cup of coffee?
