Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. PIT STOP

NHRA driving star Ashley Force Hood (above) announced she will not race in 2011 because she is expecting her first child. Maurice Jones-Drew tweets, "I guess the Candace Parker rule is in effect."

2. CENTURY MARK

Tom Daugherty left seven splits as he bowled a 100 in the stepladder finals of the PBA Tournament of Champions on Saturday. That's more televised splits than Kim Kardashian.

3. MONEY TALKS

A University of Connecticut donor named Robert Burton wants the school to refund $3 million of his money because he wasn't consulted on the selection of Paul Pasqualoni as football coach. Coincidentally, UB will introduce Burton today as the Bulls' new offensive coordinator.

4. DIAMOND POLISHING

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Derek Jeter might be suited to play center field if it ever become necessary for him to give up the shortstop position. The commissioner's office is expected to fine the Yankees for tampering with themselves.

5. PACKER PIXELS

The Green Bay Packers are refusing to let injured players Nick Barnett and Jermichael Finley pose in the team photo at the Super Bowl. I see the Packers' point: If you let those guys in, how do you tell Brett Favre and Don Majkowski they're out?
