Phelps apologizes for behavior

Olympic champion Michael Phelps was thrown into the deep end when a picture of him inhaling from a marijuana pipe landed in a British tabloid. However, unlike most athletes Phelps owned up to the wrongdoing, and because of that damage to his image has been minimal. None of his sponsors dropped Phelps as they accepted the apology he issued to the public.

Woods resumes practice

Tiger Woods, who has not played in a tournament since last June is back on the course although he hasn’t announced when he will return to the PGA Tour. This all stems from surgery he underwent to replace the ACL in his left knee. Woods said he hopes to be back in time for the Masters, which takes place in April.
