Woods' Fired Caddy Planning Tell-All Book

Steve Williams, Tiger Woods‘ longtime caddy who stood by him during his tawdry and calamitous public scandal and divorce, was none too pleased about being fired recently by Woods, and said he plans to write a book when he retires — a tome that might be heavy on salacious details about Woods, not least because Williams never signed a confidentiality agreement with the 14-time majors winner.

“It will just be one of those interesting chapters in the book,” Williams said of his time with Woods.

Bill Barnwell Is The Latest Bill Simmons Addition

Bill Barnwell is the latest addition to Bill Simmons‘ new website.

The Football Outsiders managing editor posted his final contribution to his old home today:

I’ll try to make this brief: I’m leaving Football Outsiders to join the new website Bill Simmons is starting in affiliation with ESPN. Although I’ve completed some essays that will appear in the forthcoming Football Outsiders Almanac 2011, this is my final contribution to Football Outsiders.

I joined FO as an intern during 2005, my junior year of college. I never could have possibly imagined that I’d eventually have the opportunity to write about football full-time, as I’ve done for FO during the past three years. It’s been an absolute blessing to see a passion of mine turn into a career. My luck over the past few years has been better than anyone else’s. Read more

Italians Enjoy Some Strange NBA Games

We just moved into a new apartment, and we don’t have a television yet. Since we wanted to watch the Boston Celtics-Denver Nuggets game last night and are too poor to do to a bar, we settled down into a pirated feed from an Italian station. (+1for the Internet.)

The network showing the game was Dolce Sport, beamed straight from Italy. It was lovely. Nothing like listening to Shaq dunk in Italian.

During one of the promo breaks, we noticed something interesting. A list of upcoming NBA games on Dolce Sport featured the usual list of suspects: Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and Miami. Each is a storied franchise with a correspondingly big international fanbase. But San Antonio and Denver? Really? Why would the Italians want to watch either of those two teams?

It’s not that either one is bad. It’s just we can’t imagine choosing to export either of those two squads. Maybe it’s Tony Parker‘s fault?

Peter King Asks ESPN Columnist for Help

Peter King‘s Monday Morning Quarterback column is the reason we always start the week 20 to 30 minutes behind schedule. It’s a must-read, filled with nuggets that only King – one of the best sourced (and most liked) men in the business – can deliver.

This week’s column is no exception. King tackles the Michael Vick-Donovan McNabb battle with intelligence and aplomb, offers some tidbits on LaDainian Tomlinson‘s off-season training regiemn, and gives Roddy White deserved props. Then, however, things get a bit weird. Read more
