Knockout or punch line? According to The Associated Press, Mike Tyson announced Monday that he will team up with director Spike Lee to bring his one-man show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," to Broadway for six shows starting July 31.

Peyton Manning took his talents to the Rocky Mountains. The Denver Broncos officially introduced Manning as their new quarterback Tuesday, complete with an orange No. 18 that the team has unretired just for Peyton. That means, of course - besides Tim Tebow going elsewhere - that the Broncos immediately become one of the AFC's Super Bowl favorites. With Tebow at quarterback, the Broncos reached the playoffs last season and ousted the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers.

It's that time of year again, and I'd like to ask a serious question, folks. Why do countless Americans create half-assed reasons to root for one of the teams playing in the Super Bowl? ("Uh, my uncle lived in New Jersey for a few years, and he always wore a Giants hat ... ") Lucky for you, I've got a quick breakdown of real reasons why you should root for either the Patriots or the Giants.

Count me as a guy seriously bummed about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos' ignominious exit from this year's NFL playoffs, but not for any football reason (although my opinion of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shares a lot in common with how I view the pus-like fluid that accumulates in the chaffing fat rolls of hippopotamuses). No, I love Tebow and want him to succeed because he is one of those big, bold, brash, larger-than-life public figures who demonstrates so perfectly the utter vapidity and silliness of religion.

I guess that Tim Tebow thing didn't work out. A week after rumors of a Tiger Woods-Tebow pairing at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am surfaced, espn.com reported Monday that Woods instead will be paired with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Sounds like a perfect match if you ask us. Here's why. MINI-COMEBACK TONY ROMO: Had perhaps his best season since 2007 with 31 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions. TIGER WOODS: Won his first tourney in two years in December.
