RAGING BULL ADMIRATION SOCIETY: Texas Tech basketball coach Bob Knight can be tough on players, but at least he's never bucked or trampled anyone. The same can't be said of Bobby Knight - a 1,325-pound rodeo bull named after the Hall of Fame coach. "I just would like to have that bull playing for me," Knight said Monday, a short time after learning of his namesake. His Red Raiders are struggling at 12-12. The grey-and-white bucking bull with 10-inch horns is performing at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Owner Vernon Guidry considers Knight an icon and named the bull because it was born the same day Knight was hired at Tech in 2001.
DOUBLE THE PLEASURE: Brothers Chiang Hock Woo, 48, and Chiang Hock Tew, 46, each got their first holes in one on the same 147-yard hole recently at a country club in Singapore, Bloomberg news service reported. As is tradition when getting a hole in one at a country club, each brother had to buy a round of drinks. So 124 golfers at the club that day each got two free drinks. The bill, according to Bloomberg, was picked up by the club because it has insurance for such things.
OF THE DAY
Steve Englehart, 28, was named coach of Indiana's Rose-Hulman on Tuesday, becoming the second-youngest coach in NCAA football. Who is the youngest?
"I gotta go get some peanuts and feed the pigeons so they'll fly over the statue all day long."
