Tiger WoodsIt’s pretty close to official that Tiger Woods has decided upon a comeback day.  It looks like Tiger will be joining the best of the best for THE MASTERS.  He’ll have the next month to practice and get back into top form, but it’s curious to see whether he’ll be… good.  How will the field accept him?  Will they boo him?  Will anybody applaud if he hits a 12 foot putt?  Remember, he never got truly injured physically, except for his minor injuries suffered during his car accident.  He’s still the same dominant Tiger.  The question is… can he keep himself together mentally, as golf is just as much mental as it is physical.  Concentration is paramount.  This will be fascinating.


Carmelo AnthonyAnd in the NBA, the Denver Nuggets were looking to get back on track after losing a nail-biter to Houston.  It wouldn’t be too hard either, as they played host to the lowly Wizards.  The most notable aspect of this game was their coach, George Karl, was back on the sidelines.  He had to go through several cancer treatments during their road trips, and the team was happy to have him back.  Carmelo Anthony put on a show for the Nuggets crowd, posting 29 points and 12 rebounds, and the Nuggets truly look like a championship contender right now.  Watch out Lakers!  Denver 97, Washington 87.

Finally, yesterday was the annual first game of the NCAA tournament.  Um, yeah, most people don’t know that.  For the past decade, the NCAA has allowed 65 teams into the tourney, with a play-in game on Tuesday between the 2 worst automatic bids.  This year that distinction went to Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Winthrop.  It may not be a big deal to us, but to these little guys, it means everything.  Well Arkansas-Pine Bluff came to play last night, and got a solid 14-point effort from Allen Smith.  They beat Winthrop handily, and now get to go the REAL Big Dance.  Their prize… #1 seed Duke.  Can they be the first #16 seed to beat a #1 seed? Arkansas Pine-Bluff 61, Winthrop 44.
