Full Nelson

The Byron Nelson, the closest thing that Texas has to a major championship most years, starts today at the TPC Las Colinas in the Metroplex. (In fact, it's probably already teed off by the time this gets processed by Blogger).

The
big story of this year's Nelson is that this is the first time the top 5 golfers in the world, Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, and first time Byron Nelson player Retief Goosen, have played together since the Masters.

It's also the
60th anniversary of Byron Nelson the golfer's streak of 11 straight PGA tour wins.

Even Tiger, who once put together an impressive streak of his own, stated, "Winning 11 in a row ... do you realize how good you have to play?"

Hey, it's the pot calling the kettle black, but it worked

Dirk Nowitzki, never known for his spectacular defensive play, called out Mavericks teammate Erick Dampier in the media after Monday's Game 1 for, of all things, not playing defense on Amare Stoudamire.

Well, Dampier at least improved his play on the offensive end going for 15 points and 12 rips. And the
Mavericks ripped home court from the Suns.

Oh by the way, Nowitzki also showed up and hit the game winning shot.

Runaway Train

The excellence that is Dontrelle Willis ran roughshot over the Astros last night. Yeah, I know, I know, it's the Astros and they can't hit. But no one else has been able to touch this guy so far. And Willis is 7-0. Even a hardcore Astros fan can appreciate Willis's pitching.

On the flip side,
Astros Blogger Lisa Gray smells something fishy behind Roy Oswalt being left out there in the 8th with the Astros down by one.

Tomorrow: TBA
