MJ talks about his itch, Giants fans go bobbing for baseballs and the San Diego Chargers have bolted out to a 3-0 start. Here's a look at the latest news from the world of sports.
Michael Jordan has talked publicly for the first time since he announced he's returning to the NBA. MJ says, "It's an itch that still needs to be scratched here, and I don't want that itch to bother me for the rest of my life. What I'm trying to do is get that last scratch in." (If it itches that much, he should get some powder.) Jordan will be playing at least two seasons for the Washington Wizards.

It never happened, but Barry still has 69 homeruns and has six games left to tie or break Mark McGwire's record of 70.
In the NFL, Doug Flutie must be having an extra bowl of Flutie Flakes every morning. Doug and runningback, LaDainian Tomlinson, have helped the San Diego Chargers start the season 3-0. Not bad considering the Chargers were a pathetic 1-15 last season.
