No clear Masters favorite with Woods out

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The echoes within the Augusta National pines provided evidence Wednesday that the excitement of the 78th Masters was kicking up.

Commentary: Seahawks set to buck free-agency system

Rest assured, the NFL is taking comfort in your discomfort. The rampant unease over the Seahawks’ defections means their master plan is doing its evil work, just as planned. Somewhere, Pete Rozelle is smiling.
