[THUMBS UP] To Les Robinson, North Carolina State's basketball coach, who is using money he receives from a shoe contract to create a fund for former Wolfpack players who want to complete their college educations.

[THUMBS DOWN] To two New Jersey dealers in golf memorabilia who had the morbidity to list—at $15,000—the Smith & Wesson .38 that Masters patriarch Clifford Roberts used to commit suicide in 1977. The dealers, claiming they intended to sell it only to collectors from Japan, have since withdrawn the gun from sale.

[THUMBS DOWN] To Graig Nettles, the New York Yankees' new hitting coach, for asking if he could wear his old number 9, even though it had been retired by the Yankees in 1984 in honor of Roger Maris.
