Sports News - NBA Ref ScandalThis week, one of the biggest sports scandals broke when NBA referee Tim Donaghy was accused of betting on games he was officiating. As of right now, it is not known which games he bet on or how many times - but it has caused quite a stir in the sports world. The FBI has been investigating Donaghy for the last year and believe he has ties to the mob. Donaghy is expected to surrender to authorities next week.
Sports News - Barry Within Two of RecordAfter smacking two homers in Chicago last week, Barry Bonds has not been able to get closer to Hank Aaron's all-time home run record of 755. He played 13 innings in a game on Tuesday against the Braves without results, so he took Wednesday night's game off to rest. Barry will have a chance to chip away at the record as his San Francisco Giants host the Florida Marlins this weekend.
