Truth & Rumors
Report: Tiger partied pre-surgery
It was nothing but good news for Tiger Woods after his knee surgery Tuesday in Park City, Utah. No one is willing to go on record with speculation about when he could return to the PGA Tour. But we do have a clue about how Woods prepared himself for the surgery. He was at the Bank nightclub at Bellagio in Las Vegas for a little celebration with some friends Sunday night, according to MSNBC, which also reported the Woods party was drinking Dom Perignon Rose. A bottle from the 1996 vintage will run about $455.(Los Angeles Times)
Agent: Bonds won't audition in minors
Barry Bonds has no desire to play for an independent minor league team in an effort to spur interest among major league clubs. The indicted career home run leader remains unsigned, even though he batted .276 last season with 28 homers, 66 RBIs and a major league-leading 132 walks. Just last week, outfielder Jay Gibbons agreed Monday to a contract with the minor league Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League. Gibbons failed to receive a major league offer after Baltimore released him near the end of spring training. "He has nothing to prove there," Bonds' agent, Jeff Borris, said Wednesday. "He doesn't need to go to an independent team and hit two home runs a night hoping to get attention to prove that he still has the skills that would warrant him playing at the major league level. His performance in 2007 demonstrates that he's capable of playing at the major league level for the 2008 season."(Associated Press)
Henry can see himself in MLS
Thierry Henry can see himself following David Beckham's path and leaving Europe to join Major League Soccer - someday. "Why not?" he said Wednesday night following a charity soccer match. "I love America. I love it here. And whenever I come here, I feel free. Hopefully, one day. You never know what's going to happen. But at the moment, I'm still over there."(Associated Press)
