— Tom Brady after a reporter proposed to him at Media Day

NEWSMAKERS

Tom Brady

Tom Terrific found a way to have even more folks talking about him by sporting a cast on his foot while sneaking a visit to his supermodel girlfriend.

Johan Santana

Stolen from the Twins by the Mets for a grab bag of prospects, the best pitcher in the world lands in the National League East.

Chris Webber

The reunion of Nellie and CWebb in Golden State is more interesting than Jason Kidd trying to whine his way out of New Jersey.

Rick Majerus

He didn’t even make the cover of SI, so the cover jinx can’t be blamed for his Saint Louis University reprimand. At least he didn’t grab anybody.

Barbaro

The news never stops for this dead horse. Now he will have a strange, upside-down statue, and his ashes will be buried at Churchill Downs near another statue.
