    Limbaugh is going to change the name of the team from the Rams to the Nappy-Headed Hos..Rush Limbaugh might one day own the St. Louis Rams. Hell, sometimes these column thingies write themselves. The only thing that could make this news even more fantastic is if in his first two acts as owner Limbaugh traded for Donovan McNabb and made Jesse Jackson the head coach. Followed by Ann Coulter's hiring as general manager. My head exploded after hearing this Limbaugh news. How exactly will Limbaugh address the team after he purchases them? "I just want to introduce myself and say...

    As CBS Sports announced Monday that it has hired Clark Kellogg to replace Billy Packer as lead analyst for its college basketball broadcasts, Packer cast an unemotional eye on his three decades as one of the network's signature voices and said he is eager to work on other projects.

    Online video has arrived in a big way. CBS' March Madness on Demand offering, live streams of games from the NCAA college basketball tournament, has proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that people are willing to go on to the Web to view live entertainment. CBS streamed more than 15 million live broadcasts of NCAA tournament games during this year's March Madness, numbers that exceeded the network's expectations.

    It's getting creepy out there. Paranoia is rampant. The thought police are on patrol, shining their flashlights into the corners of your garages, looking to root out and crush anything resembling dissent. Ken Griffey Jr. was in the dugout last weekend in Cincinnati, and because we all saw him writhe in agony a couple of weeks ago, his dislocated shoulder isn't exactly a state secret. Yet when someone asked how his rehabilitation was going, Junior went all CIA on us. "I'm not allowed to talk about it," he said mysteriously. "I can't say anything." Someone has gotten to Kevin Appier,...
  • Augusta Golf Fight Moves Into Cyberspace

    Filed at 10:35 a.m. ET Nearly 30 companies whose chief executives are members at all-male Augusta National now belong to another exclusive club. They are listed in the ``Hall of Hypocrisy,'' the slogan on a Web site launched Tuesday night by Martha Burk and the National Council of Women's Organization in the latest attempt to pressure the golf club into inviting women to join. The site -- -- made its debut about the time Burk appeared on HBO's ``Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.'' ``We think it is important for women to know that some of America's largest corporations maintain...

    For the past few months, while the top corners of The New York Times’ front page have been preoccupied with Iraqi invasion plans and Al Qaeda sleeper cells, below the paper’s fold—and in other prominent spots inside—The Times has launched its own tactical assault against the Augusta National Golf Club, host to the Masters Tournament. Usually forgotten for 51 weeks out of the year, the Georgia club’s refusal to admit women as members has made it a bull’s-eye for equal-opportunity proponents and a symbol of the kind of mint-julep, stick-in-the mud thinking that critics say belongs in Binx Bolling’s South,...
  • America's All-Male Golfing Society [New York Times Editorial Alert]

    William (Hootie) Johnson, the chairman of the Augusta National Golf Club, has become the poster boy for a particularly regressive branch of the golfing set. As he announced somewhat testily last week, his famous all-male country club has no plans to add women members — not anytime soon and certainly not in time for the Masters tournament in April. Augusta National is a private club, Mr. Johnson explained, and thus his members have a "constitutional right to choose" who can be excluded from its expensive inner sanctum. The constitutional right to choose is real, but it is not limited to...
