Hit the Road Jack?: Jack Nicklaus shows his softer side. Is now the right time to bow out? Or should he play on? Champions Tour anyone?

Heat Win Game 1 as Dirk Injures Finger

it may not be over, but it is very difficult to imagine the Heat losing 4 out of 6 games.

Bosh is playing great.
Haslem too.
Miller's contributing.
So is Chalmers.
D Wade is a little inconsistent, but finds a way to get 20+ every night.
Lebron is the best all-around player alive.

Terry and Stoyo need to get HOT.
I would say Thursday is a must-win for Dallas.

Heat One Win From NBA Finals

Players that dont need to be guarded (rhondo, noah), really hurt the offense in the playoffs.

Hornets Upset Lakers to Open Series

Just a personal opinion: seems like this year's NBA playoffs are shaping up to be some of the most interesting in a long, long time.

Four Celtics Make All-Star Team

Seems it would be healthier for the league if the talent wealth were more disbursed and more teams had a legitimate shot at contending.

The NBA seems like a few have's and a whole lot of have-nots.

Tiger Shoots 66 at Dubai Classic

a single round of 66 in Dubai is roughly equivalent to the current weather forecast for next Wedneday..........not a reliable prediction of anything really.

Cavs Set Record for Most Consecutive Losses

Dan Gilbert has some work to do if he's going to keep his promise and beat Lebron to a title.

Who knew that without Lebron they would be the worst team in the NBA?

Kevin Durant calls Chris Bosh a fake tough guy

that cat fight makes reggie a tough guy? did he even land a punch?

Kevin Durant calls Chris Bosh a fake tough guy

Reggie was an all time great, for sure. However, when the going got toughest Reggie definitely did not always deliver. Zero championships.

Anyway, the point wasn't to diss Reggie. I just dont follow Durant's position that Bosh is a "fake tough guy" because he engaged in a little trash talk. Lots of non tough guys trash talk, Reggie being a one example, of many possibilities. I don't really think Bosh positions himself as a tough guy to begin with.

'Everything You Know About Fitness is a Lie'

I read this article in Men's Journal a couple of months ago and thought it was a great fit for me. In recent years I have completed 3 marathons, not fast, but completed. I thought distance running was going to give me the body I had wanted. It did not. I was skinny-fat.

Granted, it's only been a short time since I've encorporated the concepts in this article, but I am already seeing results, and others have noticed as well. Moreover, it's a hell of a lot more fun to lift some weights than it is to spend all day saturday on a 18 mile training run, then recovery.

I am certain no workout program is the only one i'll ever need. however, this is a great change of pace. I am more satisfied with my body now than when my running mileage was much higher. I didn't even know what a deadlift was before but now it's my favorite exercise. Thanks for sharing this article.
