Guard Dwyane Wade says he and Pat Riley aren't in a feud, even though there's no agreement on a contract extension in sight. "It makes for good headlines, but me and Pat Riley are not against each other," Wade says.
Bringing the heat
Not that anyone was paying attention -- hey, it was a Nationals game -- but analyst Rob Dibble, a former big-league pitcher, brought the heat to a recent broadcast. "This isn't a major-league baseball team I'm watching out here," he said. "It's pathetic."
A 61-year-old ex-con busted for lifting two Belgian flower boxes worth $8,000 from Tom Brady is now on the street panhandling to repay the New England Patriots QB after a Boston Municipal Court judge ordered him to pay $4,000 restitution to Brady's realty trust.
Good to be back
Jason Taylor is positively bubbling over his return to the Miami Dolphins after a year with the Redskins. "I don't think I've ever been in a situation where it's been this seamless,'' Taylor says. Wait 'til you hear what he'd to for the Tuna.
Start the bidding?
The Dodgers couldn't wait to get rid of him a year ago, but now the Rangers have a somewhat valuable commodity if they want to trade for bullpen help. There's a case for keeping a right-handed bat for the stretch run, though.
