HEALING IS 90% MENTAL AND 60% PHYSICAL

Celtics mercenary Ray Allen says the result of his recent surgery is “like having two new pairs of feet.” When your first press conference in Boston triggers more memories of Yogi Berra than Red Auerbach, it’s never a good sign.

ACTIVE SENIOR

Roger Clemens racked up No. 350 Monday. Admit it. Given that information 10 years in advance, you would have predicted it meant pounds, not wins.

GOD SPEED

The Utah Jazz agreed to release Derek Fisher from his contract so he is free to be near his 11-month-old daughter, who has cancer in her left eye.

COULD YOU TAKE MY PICTURE? ‘CAUSE I WON’T REMEMBER

Alinghi retained the America’s Cup in a photo finish Tuesday. Let’s see, these yachts are a mile long, and I move more quickly to the refrigerator in pursuit of a beer at halftime. They really needed a second opinion?

You can sweat that much alcohol between the traffic stop and the police station, of course. But it probably won’t stop Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton from accusing somebody of racial profiling.
