_____ The Quote _____
"I was once No. 2 in the world ... and it got to the stage if I'd won the Scottish Open at Loch Lomond and Greg Norman had missed the cut in America, I would have got to No. 1. He didn't, I didn't and Tiger Woods was born. And it's been downhill ever since."

-- Colin Montgomerie

FRIDAY

MCDONALD'S NBA ALL-STAR CELEBRITY GAME

"Celebrity" participants include Ryan Cabrera, Mark McGrath, and "Blind Date" host Roger Lodge. Apparently there's a new rule dictating that one white guy must touch the ball per every possession. [ESPN, 7]

SPORTSCENTURY: CHARLES BARKLEY

SUNDAY

MIRACLE ON ICE -- 25th ANNIVERSARY

NBA ALL-STAR GAME

TNT assures us that they know drama, so expect the greatest East versus West battle since the Eastern Conference-Western Conference rap wars pitted Allen Iverson's "Non-Fiction" against Shaquille O'Neal's "Shaq Fu: Da Return." [TNT, 8]
