THE BALL DON'T LIE PRESS Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon is suing Tiger Woods (right), claiming the golf superstar has illegally adopted his trademark hand gesture the "Uno Dos Tres three point gesture as his own.

The suit, filed in Toronto, Ontario on Wednesday, accuses Tiger Woods of trademark and copyright infringement as well as misappropriation of the hand symbol. Calderon is seeking an injunction (meaning Woods would be prohibited from using the gesture), unspecified monetary damages, a hug and a round of 18, with a full service bar and snacks.

Calderon's lawyer, Jorge Garbajosa, said the Spanish point guard brought the legal action against the golf superstar in order to protect his livelihood.

"People would come up to Jose and ask him if he was letting Tiger use it or if he had licensed it to him," Garbajosa said of the gesture, which he claims his client created in 2005.

All over the Internet, Jose can be seen rocking the hand gesture. On a Raptors fan site, a t-shirt of the hand gesture has been made in his honor.

Garbajosa said he first took the hand-gesture matter directly to Woods' lawyers, but they were not receptive, saying that no one even really knew who Calderon was. Garbajosa said he provided the golfer's people with posters, various vacation pictures and video footage dating back to 2005 showing Calderon throwing the "Uno Dos Tres" three-point salute.

Woods' attorney, Bob Loblaw, could not be reached for comment.

Is this a joke?

If not: Well, I am going to have to side with Jose Calderon on this one.

Jose has been doing this to my knowledge since he first entered the league, or earlier. I have seen Tiger Woods before at Raptors games in the audience. It also looks like in the first picture that he is in the crowd during a Raptors game trying to figure out the hand symbol.

I still think this is a stupid lawsuit, but if I were the judge, I would side with Jose.
