Scenes From Mayweather-Pacquiao
Floyd Mayweather defeated Manny Pacquiao in a fight that left most people feeling somewhat unsatisfied. But most of the fun took place outside the ring. Pacquiao was escorted to the ring by Jimmy Kimmel while Mayweather was joined by the Burger King ... Pacquiao seemed to take an unusual amount of selfies, which it turned out was part of his sponsorship deal with Samsung ... Patriots teammates Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman took a private jet to the fight ... Jamie Foxx sang one of the more interesting national anthems I've heard at a sporting event ... Not everyone watched the fight, of course, so they had to tweet about what they were watching ... Many who planned to watch the fight battled pay-per-view problems. The smart viewers watched for free on Periscope ... Kanye West watched the fight with Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade ... The biggest controversy before the fight was whether Mayweather pulled the press passes from two female reporters covering the fight ... Scarlett Johannson hosted Saturday Night Live and ruined the result for the cast ... Pro golfer Brittany Lincicome was not impressed with the bout ... After the fight, Mayweather showed off his $100 million check on TV.
Weekend's Other Major Sporting Event
No, not the Kentucky Derby (here's Tim Layden on American Pharoah's victory) ... or the NFL Draft (here are our grades for all 32 teams) ... or the NBA Playoffs (here's Ben Golliver on Chris Paul's finest moment) ... or the NHL Playoffs (here's Brian Hamilton on the Blackhawks star players). The other major sporting event of the weekend was The Dorset Knob Throwing and Food Festival event in Cattistock, U.K., where participants threw a locally-made biscuit as far as they could. That's not all--the event also included knob putting, knob walking, knob archery and pin the knob on the Cerne Giant.
