Jan. 25, 2005 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down ...
STOCK UP: Patriots, Eagles are Super Bowl-bound
New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles -- They're going to the Super Bowl, baby! Head coaches Bill Belichick and Andy Reid both did great work in leading their teams to the title game in Jacksonville. Patriots QB Tom Brady is looking for his third championship in four years. Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is looking for his first ring.
Roger Clemens -- The 2004 NL Cy Young winner got a one-year, $18 million deal to return to the Houston Astros next season. If he wins 18 games in 2005, that's $1 million per victory!
Manu Ginobili -- The San Antonio Spurs star Ginobili scored 48 points in a game against the Phoenix Suns last week as the Spurs prevailed. San Antonio is enjoying another amazing season.
Tiger Woods -- Tiger got back to the winner's circle, winning in the fog at the Buick Invitational. See, you can find love in your life and still win at golf ... there's love in tennis, and now Tiger has love on the links.
STOCK DOWN: Knicks struggle below .500, Wilkens resigns
New York Knicks -- The Knicks continue to struggle, and Lenny Wilkens, a class act, decided to resign as head coach. The Knicks have too much talent to be below .500.
Charlotte Bobcats -- The Bobcats have lost eight games in a row.
Juan Ignacio Chela -- A tennis player from Argentina, Juan Ignacio Chela spit in the direction of Lleyton Hewitt at the Australian Open. That was a classless act.
