1The top men are dropping like flies at the Australian Open. The top five men's seeds including Andre Agassi and Leyton Hewitt were all knocked out in the first round. The women are doing just fine. Venus Williams, Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati have all advanced to the fourth round. Serena Williams isn't playing in this year's tournament - she has an ankle injury.

1Shaquille O'Neal was suspended for three games for trying to punch Brad Miller of the Chicago Bulls on January 12th. Brad had fouled Shaq on purpose so Shaq came out swinging. He never connected because he throws punches about as accurately as he shoots foul shots. Losing Shaq was no big deal for the Lakers. In their first game without the all-star center, Kobe Bryant scored 56 points and the Lakers blew out the Memphis Grizzlies by 34 points.

    Cheerleaders might just "hype up the team", but it still deserves to be called a sport. They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.

So it's not really a sport. It still looks fun though. Actually, cheerleaders do compete. There are cheer competitions.  Agree! 9o9
