Tiger Woods tore his left knee ACL in a SEAL "kill house" drill in 2007, Hank Haney claims in his book.

With Tiger having failed badly at non-simulated close quarters engagement in a familiar soft target setting 2 years after receiving hand to hand combat instruction, I assume that the SEAL's have since incorporated a progression of Swedish 9 Iron attack drills into their self-defense training.

Insert highly inappropriate "clubbed like a baby SEAL" comment here.

So, the Chinese Grand Prix last night was one of the best races I've seen in a quarter century as a fan, and arguably the best dry race we've ever had.

So the NHL playoffs are a little "spirited" this year, eh?

Every single Caps fan is yelling this at their TV right now: WHY CAN'T WE EVER MEET *THIS* PENS TEAM IN THE PLAYOFFS?!

If the Canucks lose tonight, then TSN's "consensus picks" for the Stanley Cup Finals will both be 0-3 in the first round.

Also, it's amazing to see a team with WORSE goaltending than Toronto in the playoffs. Fleury looks like he doesn't have a clue about the position right now, and Johnson looks overmatched as well. If there is a 3rd goalie (rookie/minors/equipment manager), I'd consider throwing him into the fire.
