The Western Conference No. 1 seed San Antonio Spurs didn’t exactly tear it up down the stretch as they headed into the NBA Playoffs, even getting overtaken for top spot overall in the NBA by the Chicago Bulls on the last day of the regular season. And that indifferent play continued into Game 1 of their opening round playoff series Sunday, when they were stunned 101-98 by the No. 8 seed Memphis Grizzlies , a game in which the Spurs had been a 6.5-point home favorite. It was the first ever playoff win for the Grizzlies franchise. But the Spurs have no intention of making major changes or adjustments for Game 2 of the best-of-seven series Read More
Leave it to the credit rating companies to make a push that could see Internet Gambling legalized in the United States.On Monday, a prominent credit rating agency said it sees Internet gambling gathering momentum in various states and in Congress.

Tiger Woods will tee-off at Augusta for the 2011 Masters Tournament this week, and for the first time since he burst on to the PGA Tour in the ‘90s, Woods is not the favorite to win the prestigious event, one of golf’s four grand slam tournaments.
Just a couple of years ago, it would have been nearly impossible to comprehend a Masters where Woods was not the man to beat.It’s hard to determine exactly when was the last Masters that Woods was not the favorite at, but this is certainly the first Masters in which Woods has competed in which he’s not the favorite. That fact underlines how far the greatest player the game has ever known has fallen.This is a tournament and a course that suits his game best. And it’s a tournament that Tiger has won four times.There were Masters tournaments in the past, as recently as two years ago, when Woods was at even money to win the Masters, which says a lot about how dominant Woods once was in general, and how he owned Augusta in particular.

If only fixing the national economy were this easy. Some people would probably have a problem with it, but President Barack Obama should be putting some federal funds on his March Madness picks, because he’s racking up the cash so far in the NCAA Tournament.One week into theBig Dance , the President’s picks are better than a lot of basketball handicappers in this country. Obama correctly picked 10 of the 16 teams that advanced to the regional semifinals in the NCAA tournament.Last week, he took the time to fill out an NCAA tournament bracket with ESPN’s Andy Katz. He went 5-3 SU on Sunday, pretty good considering the number of favorites who didn’t cover the spread and the underdogs who won outright. Read More
