THE RAYS: No, the Mariners don't have to worry about their record for wins, but Tampa Bay's 3-0 start was sure a great way to start the season.
BARRY BONDS: Remember those season projections we all were laughing about after his first game when he hit two home runs? Maybe the joke's on us.
JUAN DIXON: When the chips were down for Maryland, it rode the All-American guard to the NCAA crown.
UCONN: At 39-0, the Huskies just might be the best women's team ever.
KANSAS: The Jayhawks led the Final Four men's basketball teams with a graduation rate for players of 64 percent, well above the national average. Indiana was next at 43 -- slightly above the average. Maryland had 19, and Oklahoma zero.
RAYS MANAGEMENT: Stranding fans on the Beach gives them no way to experience all of the things the team touts about the ballpark and little incentive to buy higher-priced tickets in the future.
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Chief operation officer Bob DuPuy said he doesn't understand why the players' union interpreted the commissioner's no-lockout-during-the-season pledge as a possible prelude to a change in work rules after the World Series. Maybe it's because right after the last World Series the commissioner sprang contraction on the players.
