Today's Preview
"What potent blood hath modest May." - Ralph W. Emerson

A new month begins, and the dreams of would-be monthly winners are reborn. May Day is comprised of a typical Streak pasticcio - golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, racing, and a hockey proposition. Good luck!

We're back at Quail Hollow with another two matchups. The first is a quick (and early) 9-hole affair between Rory Sabbatini and Sean O'Hair; later on we follow up with a Tiger proposition. Early Streakers are all over Eldrick by a 97-3 ratio.

Everyone loves an afternoon in Wrigley Field, the Streak included. Take a late lunch and cast your lot with either the Cardinals or the Cubs at 2:20 p.m.

The NHL playoffs enter the second round, and two games with overwhelming home favorites take place on Friday night. We've put the home teams against each other in a more goals matchup, so you'll want to consider the opposition along with the offenses of Boston and Detroit.

The disappointing Mets visit the Phillies as losers of 7 of their last 10 games. Mike Pelfrey is scheduled to start against Chan Ho Park; expect a lot of runs in this one.

The Nationwide Series is in Richmond and you can watch Friday's race on ESPN2. Series leader Kyle Busch opposes second-place Carl Edwards on the Streak. The matchup is contingent on both drivers qualifying successfully.


NBA Playoffs - Atlanta Hawks at Miami Heat
The Heat need to win this game in Miami to avoid elimination. They will (as usual) depend on All-Everything guard Dwyane Wade; the Hawks will be depending on Joe Johnson, especially if Al Horford is unable to play because of his injured ankle.

Yesterday's Results
Another break-even day for Streakers, who excelled at picking soccer but gave it all back plus some when they were on the wrong end of Tampa Bay's 13-0 shellacking of the Red Sox.
