Update: Tiger Woods ready for NB3 Challenge

Tiger Woods wrote a blog post Monday, talking about his disastrous PGA Championship and confirming his participation in next week's Notah Begay III Challenge at Turning Stone' Atunyote Golf Club. Here's what he wrote:
"On Aug. 31, I'll play in the Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge in Verona, N.Y. Notah is like a brother to me and has done so much for the Native American community, trying to help with child obesity. People have no idea how much time and energy he has put into this cause. It's a pretty big deal for him. The last time I played in the event was in 2009, so I'm really looking forward to helping him out."
Woods also confirmed that his knee and left achilles felt great after playing in two tournaments. Injuries forced the 14-time major winner to miss more than 4 months of golf and forced tournament organizers to postpone the NB3 Challenge from it's original date on July 5. 
Woods and Bell don't appear to be a permanent team.
We also learned Bryon Bell, Woods' caddie for the Bridgestone and PGA Championship, will not be a full-time replacement for Stevie Williams. Woods wrote:
"He did a great job. He knows my game, and he knows me. Unfortunately, I was pretty rusty and didn't have enough reps to contend in either tournament. I haven't decided on a new caddie yet, but am definitely thinking about it a lot. There's a few guys I'm looking at, but it all depends on timing. At this point, I'm in no hurry to make a decision."
The NB3 Challenge will be a mixed-team best ball format with a grand prize of $275,000. PGA players Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan will join Begay, Woods and top LPGA golfers Annika Sorenstam, Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen and Natalie Gulbis in an effort to raise awareness and funding for the improved health and wellness of Native American youth on Indian reservations nationwide. The team of Kerr and Mahan are the defending champs.

Top 5 Randy Moss catches (video)

Randy Moss recently retired after a 13-year NFL career. His controversial actions and interviews off the field drew just as much press as his play on it, yet he was one of the most feared wide receivers in the game.
Why? Here are five reasons:
1) One-handed catches.

2) He's big yet could tiptoe the endzone.

3) Moss' speed and moves after the catch often led to extra yards and touchdowns.
 4) Did I mention his height? Here is Moss with an interception at the end of a half.

5) Here's another one-handed catch for a touchdown vs. the Tampa Bay Bucs
Moss ends his career with the second most touchdown receptions behind the greatest receiver in NFL history, Jerry Rice.
