Tiger Woods is back – Plus, lockout schmockout, get your basketball from the lingerie league

Tiger Woods is finally talking about his break-up! Not his divorce from Elin. His split from his caddie! Tiger will tee off tomorrow without Steve Williams on his bag. He gave Williams the boot last month (above: Tiger Woods with friend Bryon Bell, who will caddie for him at this week's Bridgestone Invitational tournament in Ohio). Yesterday, Tiger talked publicly for the first time about the break-up with his long-time caddie, saying it was just time for a change. Tiger hasn't finished a tournament since the masters in April when he re-injured his left leg. He says that's fully healed. For more on Tiger's return visit SI.com.

A pro tennis player showed up in Carlsbad, New Mexico for her tournament this week. Too bad the tournament was in Carlsbad, California!! How does this happen?! 19 year-old Bojana Jovanovski needs a new travel agent. She flew from Washington, DC... to Dallas... to Albuquerque... to Carlsbad, New Mexico. After she landed, her driver couldn't find her and called asking, "are you in Carlsbad, California or Carlsbad, New Mexico?" Jovanovski, who's the 53 ranked player in the world, had to spend the night in the airport. The next morning, she flew to San Diego, finally arriving in the right Carlsbad just 30 minutes before her match, which she lost in 3 sets. Next up, Jovanovski plays in Toronto... which is in Canada.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina went ballistic last night after he was called out on strikes in the 10th inning. First off, you don't bump an umpire... and you never spit on an umpire!! Molina says he didn't spit on the ump. He claims it was flying sweat that hit the ump in the face. Nonetheless, Molina had better get ready to take a little vacation because he's going to be suspended for this outburst. For all your baseball scores and news visit SI.com.

Things just got uglier in the NBA lockout with the league filing a lawsuit against the players union. NBA Commissioner David Stern, who's not taking a salary during the lockout, says the players are dragging their feet getting a deal done. The rep for the players calls the lawsuit "totally without merit." The bottom line for basketball fans, getting the NBA season started on time is looking less and less likely. Soooo....

Let's get behind the lingerie basketball league... The LBL tipped off last weekend and is made up of 4 teams... The Beauties, the Glam, the Starlets and the Divas... All based out of Los Angeles. Now don't confuse the Lingerie Basketball League with the Bikini Basketball League, which has yet to get off the ground but promises squads like the Kentucky Cupcakes, the Texas Hot Sauce... And my hometown Indiana Milkshake.

New TNT analyst Shaquille O'Neal kept it in the family appearing on Conan last night on TBS. Shaq comes out wearing a Conan O'Brien wig, and then he tackles Andy Richter. Later, Shaq and Conan were going to race toy cars, but when you're 7-foot-1 and weigh more than 300 pounds, that can be difficult.

Enjoy your Hump Day!!
