Web Pulse: Jesse James, American Idol, David Mills

Jesse James' rep said he has gone for treatment to help save his marriage to Sandra Bullock.

Here’s a quick glance at the collective consciousness of the Web on Wednesday: 

Jesse James and Sandra Bullock - This couple hasn't been able to stay out of the spotlight since allegations began that Jesse James had several affairs while he was married to Oscar winner Sandra Bullock. Today, the spotlight continues to shine even brighter and people continue to rally support behind Bullock, who is considered to be one of America's sweethearts. Unfortunately, it is still because of the couple's marital problems. Jesse James' rep has told CNN's partners at PEOPLE that he is seeing professional help because he knows his family's future is on the line. Here's hoping with James sidelined (and hidden) that Bullock can get back to the spotlight she deserves - celebrating her unbelievable year and Academy Award while pushing her career further.

McCain to Obama: 'Drill baby, drill!

The "drill baby, drill" rally cry is back.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, on Wednesday hailed President Obama's decision to open U.S. coastal waters to oil and natural gas drilling.

Arizona's senior senator, who faces a tough Republican primary fight this year, tweeted: "Drill baby drill! Good move – where are Reid and Pelosi on this?"

During the 2008 presidential campaign, McCain - as well as his running mate Sarah Palin - wholeheartedly favored offshore drilling as gas prices rose throughout the country.

The Spartans are scheduled to leave Lansing about 3 p.m. today for Indianapolis for this weekend’s Final Four. But there’s plenty of sports to watch prior to this weekend, including a terrific soccer match in London today. Some highlights (all times Eastern):
