1. I'LL KEEP THE KEYS
Danica Patrick had three wrecks in three races at Daytona this week. Kind of makes you think twice before letting her drive your car down to the 7-11 to pick up some milk.
2. UP AND OVER
Ricky Rubio of the Timberwolves recently set a world record by making 18 straight shots from behind the backboard in one minute. Now comes the tough part -- making that shot part of the Minnesota offense.
3. LET'S GO OLD SCHOOL
Phil Knight, of Nike fame, has been elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame as a contributor. Remind me to wear Chuck Taylor All-Stars on the court in protest in my next pick-up game.
4. NO SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES
Former Penn State lineman & NFL hopeful Devon Still declares: "I think hands down, I'm the best defensive tackle in this draft." Unluckily for him, he doesn't get to do the drafting in April.
5. FIRST-CLASS TREATMENT
Members of the Mets' front office flew by helicopter to the Knicks-Heat game Thursday night. At least we know the team has put the savings from not signing Jose Reyes to good use.
