The Bald Truth
Just days after paying AC Milan $92 million for Brazilian midfielder Kaka, Real Madrid agreed to fork over $131 million to Manchester United just for the right to work out a contract with Portuguese midfielder Christiano Rinaldo. Wow! That's a lot of green just to increase the team's goals-per-game average from 1.04 to 1.05.
And this just in: Sources say the Yankees contacted Real Madrid to see how much the soccer club would pay for Alex Rodriguez.
"We can't promise he'll come through with the season on the line," Hank Steinbrenner was overheard saying. "But at least he'll supply his own syringes."

The Eagles have given Donovan McNabb a new contract, and the deal is unique to say the least.
It contains the first per-boo incentive clause in sports history.
THE BALDEST TRUTH
Gotta give John Daly credit: The man has style.
He's charitable, too. After the St. Jude Classic, he's donating his pants to the Sad Clowns Society.
