Kevin Ware of Louisville is resting comfortably in the hospital this morning, hours after breaking his leg in arguably the most gruesome sports injury anyone has ever seen.

The incident took place in the first half of Louisville's Final Four victory of Duke, as the guard jumped to block a three-point attempt and landed awkward on his right leg.

As you can see in the following video, the body part immediately snapped in half in front of the Cardinals' bench, as teammates reacted in horror. Be warned: this is graphic in nature.

In an interview with CNN yesterday, former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris came out as a homosexual.

Harris had been arrested in January for beating an ex-boyfriend and said he underwent significant stress and pressure, keeping his sexuality a secret during his playing days.

“You want to escape the despair and turmoil and your mind goes to dark places,” Harris said of keeping his sexuality secret. “I’m happy today, and I’m glad they were just ideas and I didn’t act on any of them.

“The cost was great not speak candidly open about myself in complete manner,” Harris said. “If I could have done it differently, I would have hoped I found the strength [to come out].”

The Houston Astros will open the season this Sunday, making their first appearance as an American League team after switching from the National League during the offseason.

While the switch allows them an extra hitter in the form of a DH, nobody expects that to matter. Why? Because the Astros have the lowest salary in baseball.

Their salary is so low, in fact, that injured third baseman Alex Rodriguez is making more than the entire team in Houston! And he may not even see the field this year! Yikes!

Under fire from the Twitterverse and other TV analysts, Doug Gottlieb has issued an apology for his "white man" joke last night.

The former Oklahama State point guard was discussing the NCAA Tournament with four African-American colleagues when he quipped that he's just around to bring the "white man's perspective to the set."

The line didn't exactly go over well, as you can see in the following video:

At first defending the line as a "joke," Gottlieb was forced to be a bit contrite after criticism poured in, most pointedly from ESPN college football reporter Mark May, who Tweeted that Gottlieb should be "canned" and added:

Well, this was awkward.

During a segment of CBS' college basketball pregame show tonight, Doug Gottlieb was asked for his opinion on something related to the NCAA Tournament and - surrounded by Greg Gumbel, Greg Anthony, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley - cracked:

"I'm just here to bring diversity to the set here. Give the kind of white man's perspective on things from the point guard position."

Did the quip go over well? Not exactly...

When asked via Twitter about the random comment, Gottlieb defended it as a "joke."

But do you think he was really kidding? Or actually felt out of place in some way?

The NFL's Miami Dolphins have a new logo.

One they meant to unveil April 25 but leaked.

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee made it official Wednesday, saying that the logo that has made the rounds on Internet in recent days is the real deal:

New Dolphins Logo

Over the weekend the logo was leaked when one of the team's players was wearing a T-shirt with the new design in a Twitter pic. Ah, the Digital Age.

Also on Wednesday, the NFL's official website accidently posted the new logo on its "Predict the Draft Pick" page. That page was quickly taken down.

Featuring a meaner and sleeker looking dolphin, the logo is still similar to Miami's traditional look as the marine mammal is cascading across a sunburst.

Whether it will help them swim past New England is another story. New logo or not, Ryan Tannehill is still the one wearing it when he lines up under center.

Tiger Woods may be back on top of the golf world, but he hasn't put all controversy to rest, thanks to his "winning takes care of everything" Nike ad.

The new ad congratulates the golf legend's return to the No. 1 ranking with a phrase often used by Tiger himself ... one that's viewed differently now.

Tiger Woods Winning

The main takeaway: Some feel the ad's swagger is offensive given the 2009 cheating scandal that ruined his marriage and took a toll on his golf career.

Many Americans blasted the ad on Facebook and Twitter as being too dismissive of the many extramarital affairs Woods committed four years ago.

Among the choice comments Nike has received on FB:

In golf, Phil Mickelson's short game is pretty much unrivaled.

In this "flop shot" demonstration, he proves this once again.

The four-time major winner demonstrated his famous trick shot with Roger Cleveland, chief club designer at Callaway Golf, standing just three feet away!

After describing how to play a successful flop shot, Mickelson barely (but effortlessly) clears Cleveland's head from an impossibly short distance:

It's not only something he does to rack up YouTube views. The shot allows Phil to arc the ball significantly to land the ball softly on firm PGA surfaces.

We didn't think it would be possible for another golf video to top Sergio Garcia hitting out of a tree in less than one week's time, but that's Lefty for you.
