News Update: There have been a number of updates to posts I have made in the last few weeks.

Major League Baseball owners unanimously approved the sale of the Dodgers to Frank McCourt. Read more here, here and here.

The University of Colorado delayed state senate plans for a special legislative investigation of alleged recruiting violations, including sex parties, after the university's president agreed to form an independent commission to look into the allegations. Since the Colorado allegations, there have been stories emerging about other schools as well, including the University of Minnesota.

Shaquille O'Neal has been suspended for one game by the NBA following a profanity-laced tirade directed at officials and the league, including David Stern. O'Neal said one profanity during a television interview, and then when reminded that the interview was being shown live, responded with another profanity.

Finally, two days of pre-trial hearings began in the Kobe Bryant case. Bryant, however, missed the closed-door hearings because of an illness.
