What we saw

Your Honor, I object — to myself

Barry Bonds might want to waive his right to appear at his perjury trial. Whether he lied about steroids or not, the almost waif-like body he brought to his Friday court appearance might betray his words that he didn't knowingly take anything to blimp up like Bluto. At the very least, any recent Bonds baseball cards should be kept from the jury.

Kings of the road kill?

John Wall is no doubt proud of the 35-3 he put up at Kentucky, but the number he's dwelling on now is 0-41. His Wizards are 21 road losses away from it, nine away from the Mavs' historic bad start. Said Wall: "We don't want to go 0-41. That's embarrassing."

Yankees in mid-season form

By affixing more blame than credit to Hal Steinbrenner over the $35 million deal given to set-up reliever Rafael Soriano, Brian Cashman is showing signs of relief that his own contract is almost up. All he needs now is an I'm With Stupid T-shirt.

Tweeting sweet nothings

Before the Cavs lost their 15th straight and 25th in 26 games, owner Dan Gilbert came out tweeting, promising fans that he would "think," "examine," "calculate" then "strike." "And we will strike." All he left out was, "It's only a flesh wound."
