March 25, 2012|By Chris Sosa | RedEye

READ

"The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods"

Available Tuesday

Hank Haney, one of Woods' former coaches, shares what he knows about working with world's most famous golfer, including Tiger's dalliance with Navy SEAL training. Don't expect any dirt of the sexual affair variety, but there might be more than just a detailed breakdown of Woods' swing. At least, we hope there's more.

WATCH

"UFC: Best of 2011"

Available Tuesday on DVD andBlu-ray

From the sport's stars—such as Junior dos Santos and Anderson Silva—to Dan Henderson and Shogun Rua's epic showdown, 2011 had more than its share of highlights in the UFC. And all the hits probably look even more impressive, and painful, onBlu-ray.

ATTEND

Blackhawks vs. St. Louis

7:30 p.m. Thursday, United Center

It's probably too late to catch Central Division-leading St. Louis, but the Blackhawks can use all the points they can get as they try to secure home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs. Besides, beating the rival Blues never gets old.

WATCH

Final Four

Starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, CBS

Unlike 2011, when underdogs VCU and Butler crashed the Final Four, this year's all about powerhouses. If the red-hot Kentucky-Louisvlle rivalry doesn't get you going, maybe the matchup of stud centers Jared Sullinger (Ohio State) and Thomas Robinson (Kansas), will grab your attention.

WATCH

Bulls at Oklahoma City

Noon Sunday, ABC

The Eastern Conference-leading Bulls. The Western Conference-leading Thunder. Tons of star power, from Derrick Rose to Kevin Durant. If we're lucky, this game will be just a taste of what's in store in the NBA Finals in June.
