A mini-scuffle broke out during Sunday's Celtics-Heat game. The highlight (actually, make that lowlight) was LeBron James throwing the ball at Jermaine O'Neal's back.

No, Tom Brady wasn't watching the video of him dancing at Carnival last month when he recently broke down in tears. He was recalling how tough it was to wait until the sixth round of the 2000 draft to get selected.

One of the early storylines from the baseball season -- at least from some media members who seem obsessed with attendance numbers -- has been the amount of empty seats at ballparks. For some reason, people can't grasp the concept that ridiculous prices for things like parking and concessions combined with bad April weather keep people away. In my opinion, there's another reason people are hesitant to take in a game -- people at games behave like animals. I'd be willing to bet there are plenty of moms and dads out there who want to take their kids to a game but think twice about it because of incidents such as this one: cops beating and tasing a fan who was intoxicated and using bad language at Saturday's Pirates game, as onlookers chanted "U-S-A" as if they were at an '80s WWF match involving the Iron Shiek. Oh, and if you need more proof that fan behavior at games is as disturbing as ever, check this out. (Thanks to Mike, of Jackson, Miss., for the link.)
