TIGER WOODS: Maybe the greatest achievement in golf history isn't traditionally a Grand Slam because we have to use two calendars. He'll have to win the U.S. and British opens and the PGA this summer to satisfy the traditionalists. We wouldn't be surprised to see him do it just for spite.
RICH McKAY: The general manager's deft handling of the salary cap has allowed the Bucs to retain Jerry Wunsch and Ronde Barber while still adding Brad Johnson, Simeon Rice and Ryan Leaf.
TROY AIKMAN: The Cowboys quarterback called the smartest audible of his career, choosing to retire rather than play one more season and risk yet another concussion.
NASCAR: In its investigation into the death of Dale Earnhardt, stock car's ruling body continues its ultra-secretive history. If it was any more secretive, it would be the NCAA.
NBA: One of the new rule changes for next season means teams will be able to put two defenders on a Jerry Stackhouse and leave, oh, a Ben Wallace open. Less of the stars, more of the average (and below) players. Not even an MJ return can resurrect a league going in that direction.
