The New York Post profiles the new HBO series 'Treme' which focuses on New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The show, a David Chase ('The Wire') creation stars Wendell Pierce and Khandi Alexander debuts Sunday at 10. 'The Wire' remains one of the best shows ever created for television, so if Chase is on his game, it looks like 'Treme' shouldn't disappoint either.

Tiger's New Nike Ad Featuring His Father's Voice!

Tiger Woods' new Nike ad features his father Earl's voice asking "did you learn anything?" The commercial is a little eerie, but gives the effect of his deceased father somewhat chastising his prodigal son from the grave. Tiger makes his golf comeback today at the Masters with the world watching his every move. While I don't expect Tiger to win the tournament, he should be in contention at least and make a respectable showing.

Maya Moore Is It!

Many of you probably haven't heard of Maya Moore, but she's a 20 year old Junior at the University of Connecticut, the best player in college basketball, and she lead her team the it's 2nd consecutive undefeated season and national championship last night. Connecticut beat Stanford 53 - 47 after trailing at the end of the first half. Moore scored 23 points and had 11 rebounds in the victory and cemented herself as the best player in college. Connecticut has won 78 consecutive games and next year will be going after UCLA's record 88 consecutive wins.

I'm not sure if Moore is the best female basketball player that I've seen, I have to go with Cheryl Miller on that one, but she's in the conversation.

#5 Now A Redskin!

Twitter and ESPNews lit up last night with the news that Donovan McNabb had been traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Washington Redskins, a Eagles division rival. Coach Andy Reid stated that it was important to send McNabb to a team that he felt comfortable in joining, but more than likely the Eagles feel that McNabb is way past his prime and will not hurt them within the division.

It was time for the Eagles and McNabb to part ways. The fanbase in Philly clearly wanted McNabb gone and the Eagles were ready to promote Kevin Kolb to starter. McNabb now gets a fresh start with a coach, Mike Shanahan who has 2 Super Bowl rings. If he has anything left, Shanahan should be able to allow McNabb to flourish.
