Tuesday Tidbits

-Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk. I don't know, I heard that somewhere. KU last night, pulled off an upset over number 3, Oklahoma in Norman. The Sooners were playing without Blake Griffin, and couldn't overcome Tyshawn Taylor's career high 26 points. This is a nice victory for Kansas, especially playing it on the road but you have to think that with Griffin not playing the win can't be as satisfying for the fans in Lawrence. By the way, I know WAY too many Jayhawk fans. I live in Utah for hell's sake.

-We all know that Tiger Woods will be returning at the Accenture Match Play Championships this week in Arizona. In this article Darren Rovell from CNBC.com we learn that Tiger will have a new sponsor on his golf bag for the season.

-Devin Harris made the shot of the year last night in East Rutherford to lead the Nets to a 98-96 win over the 76ers. I have always loved the last second shot in basketball, but this might be one of the best ever. For those that are wondering he did not travel. AI (part 2) knocked the ball loose, Harris recovered and shot-put in the winning basket. Unreal.

-Charles Barkley will serve 5 days in jail in Arizona's infamous Tent City,after pleading guilty to charges of drunken driving. After watching Barkley's apology last Thursday night on TNT, I couldn't help but appreciate his honesty, and I truly do believe he feels bad for what he did. I wonder how The Round Mound of Rebound will look in pink underwear.

-Jon Heyman gives us an update on all of the big name free-agents still left in Major League Baseball. Manny is going to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 26-30 million per season. It's just a matter of whether or not he and Scott Boras are willing to accept a deal for 2 years as opposed to the original 6 that they asked for.

-24 was solid last night. This season has been so much better than season 6. By the way, next Monday I turn 24. Is it any coincidence that there will be a special 2-hour showing of 24 on the same day? I think not.
