*What I take away from this story about Bill Simmons playing video golf with Tiger Woods is that Bill definitely lives in a different world from the rest of us these days.

*Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts has a handy guide to assessing media rumors in the baseball offseason - in fact, I would say that it's good advice for evaluating media rumors generally.

*Mike Carminati notes the historical rarity of the Yankees losing in more than two consecutive postseasons. Note the short list of teams before 1995 that appeared in the postseason three years running without winning it all.

*Eliot Spitzer's role on the Claus von Bulow case.

*A Robin Williams film appreciation by a critic who really hates him. Like Eddie Murphy, Williams didn't lose so much his comic touch as his judgment in scripts.

I was thinking the same thing about our friend, The Sports Guy. I still enjoyed reading him, but he's in rarified air these days. I actually realized that last year when I saw him one of those VH1 shows, then read his piece about hanging out in Veags one table away from Jordan & Oakley as they played cards.

Of course I say "our friend" with a wink. You're obviously in a different place there. He still stay in touch with you? If that's none of my business, forget I asked (and accept a sincere apology), but I'm legitimately curious.
