THE PRESS BOX: Tiger Woods Press Conference at Augusta Part 1

compiled by staff

In his first public appearances on Sunday and Monday at Augusta National Golf Club, Tiger Woods had a chance to play the course as a tuneup for this weeks Masters Tournament which begins on Thursday.

On Sunday, the course was closed to the public and reporters were only able to watch Woods work on the driving range, two putting greens and then tee off from the 10th hole. He was followed by 15 security personnel, including several officers from the Sheriff’s Department of Richmond County.

On Monday, he practiced again and was greeted by fans very warmly and was actually surprised by the greeting from the crowds.

Tiger hasn’t played in a tournament since the Australian Masters last November. The fans of the PGA Tour have an interest in his game as he returns to pursue his 5th championship and green jacket at Augusta.

It has been reported throughout the media that Tiger wasn’t wearing a wedding ring when he put on his golf glove. His golf bag featured just the Tiger Woods golf logo.

Tiger Woods, who is unbelievably 34-years-old now, is trying to return from a scandal of lies, mistresses, two stints in rehabilitation clinics and infidelity that came to light that early November morning when he had the car accident with all of the speculation surrounding a golf club swinging from his wife Elin.

After his practice round, Tiger met with the media to answer  questions about everything in his life dating back when the affairs started to how his knee is doing. Below is part 1 of 10 questions from the press conference at Augusta National.

Surprisingly, Eagles trade McNabb to division rival Washington

compiled from staff, wire and internet reports

As expected, Donovan McNabb was traded but who he was traded to was a surprise as well as shocking.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded McNabb to the Washington Redskins for a pair of drafts picks Sunday night. The Eagles will receive a second-round pick (37th overall) in the 2010 NFL draft and either a third-or-fourth round pick next year.

Donovan McNabb (Redskins)

The trade is a daring move for new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and might be signaling the end in Washington for incumbent QB Jason Campbell, the starter for the past 3 1/2 years. Shanahan recently signed free-agent Rex Grossman to be the backup and has also been scouting the college quarterbacks who will be in the draft. The Redskins have the number 4 overall pick in the draft.

Shanahan is hoping that the 33-year-old McNabb works out as well as the last trade between the two teams involving a big-name quarterback.  In 1964, the Eagles sent Sonny Jurgensen to the Redskins, where he played 11 years until he was 40 and became a Hall of Famer.  When asked about the trade, Jurgensen said “These people never learn.”

Trading McNabb to a division opponent could haunt Philadelphia for years, and the Eagles fans, who can be brutal, are definitely questioning the trade of the popular McNabb.

McNabb is in the last year of his contract and it has not been known if the two sides will talk extension or not.

McNabb threw for 3,553 yards and 22 touchdowns with 10 interceptions in 14 games last season, leading the Eagles to the playoffs. His passer rating of 92.9 was the third-highest of his career.

Donovan, a six-time Pro Bowl quarterback, led the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in 11 seasons in Philadelphia. His failure to lead the team to its first NFL championship since 1960 made him expendable.

The Syracuse alumnus, the number 2 overall pick in the 1999 draft, leaves the franchise as its leader in yards passing (32,873), completions (2,801), attempts (4,746), completion percentage (59.0) and touchdown passes (216). He also rushed for 3,249 yards and 28 TD’s.

With McNabb gone, Kevin Kolb will be the starter and Michael Vick will be the backup.

Red Sox rally to beat the Yankees in 2010 Opening Game

compiled by staff

The Boston Red Sox started spring training stressing defense and run prevention as they were putting together the 2010 team. But this team can still score runs.

First baseman Kevin Youkilis had three extra-base hits, Dustin Pedroia hit a two-run homer and three new starters: Mike Cameron, Adrian Beltre and Marco Scutaro had solid nights at the plate as Boston rallied to beat the defending champion New York Yankees 9-7 in the 2010 major league opener on Sunday night.

Boston erased a 5-1 deficit against C.C. Sabathia in the first night opener in the history of venerable Fenway Park which is now 98-years-old.

The free agent signings of outfielder Mike Cameron, third baseman Andrian Beltre and shortstop Marco Scutaro were part of the plan that general manager Theo Epstein called his “run prevention” plan after a very poor defensive season by the team. That trio showed they can play offense by going a combined 5 for 9 with 3 runs batted in.


* Former Red Sox pitching ace Pedro Martinez got a warm reception from the crowd when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

* Boston-area native Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, sang “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch.

* Neil Diamond sung “Sweet Caroline” after the top of the eighth inning. The Brooklyn, NY native wore a blue Red Sox hat and a dark jacket with the words “KEEP THE DODGERS IN BROOKLYN” on the back.

* The first eight batters of the game were retired before the Yankees, who led the American League in 2009 with 244 homers, had two in a row as Jorge Posada hit a liner off the right field foul pole which is affectionately called the “Johnny Pesky” foul pole. Then Curtis Granderson sent a long drive into the centerfield seats in his first at-bat as a Yankee. That feat was the first for the Yankees on opening day since Dave Winfield and Steve Kemp did it on April 5, 1983 at Seattle.

Celtics blow 22 point lead but hold on to beat Cleveland

compiled from staff and wire reports

Ray Allen scored a season-high 33 points, hitting his sixth 3-pointer to give the Celtics a four-point lead with 48 seconds left, and Rajon Rondo scored 16 with 14 assists to helpBoston snap a three-game home losing streak.

The Cavaliers had just erased a 22-point deficit when LeBron James grabbed a rebound with 10 seconds left and sprinted down the court needing two to tie and three to win. James shot a three and missed.

James scored 20 of his 42 points in the 4th quarter, but he missed two crucial free throws in the final 16 seconds and a pair of 3-point attempts as the Celtics withstood the Cavs comeback for a 117-113 win in Boston on Easter Sunday.

The season series between the Celtics and Cavaliers finished at 2-2.
