Jim Gray was pulled from Golf Channel's coverage of the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club on Friday after he and Bobby Brown, caddie for Dustin Johnson, exchanged heated words Thursday. Johnson, who last year led this tournament for the first two rounds, almost missed his tee time Thursday. Johnson said his caddie had mistaken his Wednesday pro-am 8:12 a.m. start and Thursday's scheduled 7:32 a.m. start. Johnson missed being disqualified by seconds and incurred a two-shot penalty.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Who knew the Ryder Cup could cause so much drama? The day before the PGA Championship began, a snafu broke out over a Golf Channel report that quoted Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin saying he would choose Tiger Woods for this year's U.S. squad if Woods doesn't finish in the top eight of the point standings. At his news conference Wednesday, and on his Twitter account, Pavin claimed he was misquoted by Golf Channel contributor Jim Gray, and that he has not selected anyone to be on the team.

If you were going to pick a color to describe ESPN reporter Jim Gray it would be, well, gray. There's nothing flamboyant about him. He's a laid-back, easygoing young man who doesn't have distinctive looks, a distinctive voice or a gimmick. All Jim Gray has is a knack for breaking big stories. Last Halloween night, Gray got Eric Dickerson to drive from his home in Malibu to a studio in Hollywood to announce that he had been traded from the Rams to the Indianapolis Colts.

Jim Gray, rigid as a judge's gavel, stood at the front of a high-ceilinged tavern here and ran through a list of political positions he hoped would appeal to Mendocino County's famously idiosyncratic voters. Pot should be legal. Genetically modified foods should be labeled. The Patriot Act should be gutted. "We are galloping, racing toward a police state," said Gray, his voice curt and direct. "This Patriot Act is the most recent, but our civil liberties are in jeopardy."

The daylong event honoring the computer-science whiz who helped create automated teller machines will be part celebration, part science fair. But don't call it a memorial or funeral. That would be too final. The commemoration of Jim Gray's life on Saturday is billed as a "tribute," as if the 6-foot-3 Microsoft Corp. researcher might stroll right into UC Berkeley's Wheeler Hall for the kind of academic symposium he loved to attend, where experts come together to solve a problem.

Now that King James has set the table, gentle celebrity subjects, what's the holdup? Newsmakers, can't you plainly see from ESPN's LeBronapalooza that media entities are ready to deal away control of their programming? You have a brand. They have the channels. Let the feast begin! Lindsay Lohan, you don't have to go to that lockup in Lynwood all by your lonesome. Bring TMZ or E! along. Maybe stodgy L.A. County usually won't allow cameras inside its jails. But LeBron James scooped up the ad revenue from Thursday night's ESPN special for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Friends of a renowned Bay Area computer scientist whose sailboat vanished this week off the coast here pledged Friday to continue hunting for the missing sailor even though the U.S. Coast Guard has called off its search. Jim Gray, 63, a research pioneer and founder of Microsoft's Bay Area Research Center, left San Francisco on Sunday aboard his 40-foot sailboat, Tenacious, to scatter his mother's ashes off the Farallon Islands, about 30 miles west of the city. He planned to be back that day.
