Did Elin really come out swinging?

A lawyer for Tiger Woodsí neighbours says they didnít see Elin Nordegren carrying a golf club at the car crash site.

Hmm, was it a ball retriever, maybe?

Tigerís recession

Woodsí family life possibly could be at a crisis point, and the only thing some people are worrying about is money.

For instance, some hand-wringers are questioning whether his Escalade escapade will cost Woods in off-the-course earnings.

Sheesh, the man made $110 million last year, chances are he can squeak by on a 15% pay cut.

Your honour

Maple Leaf Spurts of Entertainment Ltd. has honoured various former Maple Leafs and Raptors this season, including luminaries such as Darcy Tucker and Charles Oakley.

They missed a biggie last night, as a one-time Raptor and long-time NBA star was in town with the Washington Wizards. He never lost a game in a Raptors uniform.

Remember Antawn Jamison, Raptors first-round draft pick in 1998?

He was promptly traded for Vince Carter and cash.

Hmm, Carter and Cash, that sounds like an old country duo.

Speaking of cash ...

For winning the Grey Cup, the Montreal Alouettes earned $16,000 a player, in addition to $3,300 for finishing first during the season and $3,500 for other playoff achievements.

Winning the World Series was worth $365,321.79 to each of the New York Yankees.

By comparison, did the Als get their fair share?

Contrarian Ontarians?

So, who has the rowdier football fans, the CFL or the NFL? Toronto or Buffalo?

Thirty-four fans were ejected from Calgaryís McMahon Stadium for alcohol-induced bad behaviour during the Grey Cup game on Sunday.

Coincidentally, 34 arrests were made during the Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins game at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday.

Buffalo-area residents like to point out that there is a disproportionate number of trouble-makers from Ontario at Bills games.

Ontario residents make up 15-20% of Buffalo home crowds.

But Ontarians accounted for 13 of the arrests on Sunday (13-for-34, 38%) at the game leading up to the Bills visit to the Rogers Centre tomorrow night, according to the Buffalo News.

Thatís an improvement over one year ago, when Ontario residents went 21-for-33 (64%) on the arrest ledger at the Ralph, the week before the Billlsí visit to Toronto.

Surely, football fans will be on their best behaviour tomorrow night. Who can afford to drink at the Rog?

I'm a lumberjack ...

So, a frustrated Keith Ballard of the Florida Panthers swings his stick in the direction of the net but instead hacks his own goalie, Tomas Vokoun, on the head.

Note to Ballard: Perhaps you could get Elin Nordegren to help you work on your grip.

Here is the video.
