Sports: Morning Sports Shorts 4/5 

Going, going, gone: Detroit's Dmitri Young blasts three Opening Day taters. Cinci's Adam Dunn swats two, as does Chicago's Derek Lee. Before we commence with silly projections of Young to 486 bombs and the others to 324 each, remember that the last player to open with three homers on Opening Day, Tuffy Rhodes in 1994, went on to hit only nine on the season. Lee and Young should both reach the mid-20s, but Dunn is the only real contender for the home run title.

North Carolina wins: Good for them.

Nicklaus to play The Masters: I'd love to see the Bear make the cut at Augusta. Sure he's not going to win another green jacket, but he reportedly shot a 74 in a practice round last week. A couple of those could keep him around at least until the weekend.
