I’ve tried 25 different ways to start this column and none of them are working, so I’m just going to have to go with Plan Z, come right out and say it. To rip the Band-Aid off, bare my soul and let the chips fall where they may. So here goes:

The Boston Marathon sucks.



Twins infielder Orlando Hudson isn’t happy that his friend, free agent outfielder Jermaine Dye, is not playing this season, and he implies the reason is racism. “Call it what you want to,” Hudson said following the Twins’ victory over the Red Sox in Minneapolis. “I ain’t fit to say it.

Disgraced home run king Barry Bonds made an appearance at the park in San Francisco for a Giants reunion and met briefly with the media.

Some winners and losers from a week at the Masters that included a hugely popular win, a pair of old guys making a run, Jim Nantz stepping up the creepy and the introduction of The New Tiger Woods, who, it turns out, is exactly like the Tiger Woods we watched five months ago.
