John Rocker, an outspoken former relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves, has made his feelings on any potential gun control laws very clear:

The southpaw is against them, explaining why in a column for World Net Daily.

Rocker

"Mr. Obama wants to severely neuter the Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizens of this nation, a similar act of tyrants throughout the 20th century such as Stalin, Mao and Hitler," Rocker writes.

"Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler's Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms."

Kevin Durant, one of NBA's renowned good guys, has come under scrutiny for his on-court language and demeanor ... from his own grandmother.

After his Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Phoenix Suns Monday, Durant's grandma congratulated him on the win via text, with a side of scolding:

"Kev kev stop cussing so much they be showing u when u do," she wrote.

His reply: "Haha sorry grandma I be so emotional, I love u ..."

Durant then shared a screenshot of the exchange with his 960,000 Instagram followers on Tuesday, with the appropriate caption "sorry grandma lol."

Even multimillionaire NBA stars need to be kept in line by grandparents!

ESPN is sorry. But Brent Musburger is not.

The 73-year old announcer made major headlines last week when he gushed over Katherine Webb, the gorgeous girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron.

But while ESPN issued an apology for what some considered to be Musburger's creepy comments, the long-time reporter sees no need to backtrack.

"Individuals say what individuals say. And corporations do what corporations do," Musburger told TMZ. "Obviously, they felt it was the right thing for them to do."

Webb, meanwhile, has said she was "flattered" by the praise and didn't require any sort of mea culpa on the announcer or network's end.

And men around the world don't either, of course, as all this attention will give them a chance to ogle Katherine Webb bikini photos next month in Sports Illustrated. Talk about a win-win-win!

In a word: WOW.

During a recent Atlanta Hawks fan, a season ticket holder was chosen at random to win a major prize by sinking a half-court shot. Pretty basic giveaway for a professional basketball team, right?

We've seen in a million times?

Well, trust us, you've NEVER seen a half-court shot end up like this one. It seems to defy the rules of gravity and physics. Watch now and see what we mean:

When Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy hit the driving range, more than skill levels will be off the charts. These two competitors play to win - and to let you know it!

Nike, which just signed McIlroy to a huge deal, created golf's version of the famous Bird-Jordan H-O-R-S-E ad, and it's one of the best sports commercials in awhile:

It also serves as the passing of the torch of sorts from longtime Nike pitchman Woods, 37, to McIlroy, 23, the current world No. 1 out of Northern Ireland.

McIlroy and Woods are on the range, hitting can-you-top-this golf shots and poking fun at one another as they perform one impossible feat after another.

Nike definitely has a new star to play with - and an older one with plenty left, as well.
