The Thunder eliminated the Spurs in what may have been Tim Duncan's final game. Russell Westbrook wore zebra-striped shoes to the game and then had the staredown of the playoffs. Duncan looked old while Gregg Popovich was at his testy best in the postgame news conference. Oklahoma City will play Golden State in the Western Conference Finals.


Shady Umpire of the Day

From the "I can't believe this actually happened" department, a high school baseball umpire in Texas is under investigation for covering home plate in dirt to nullify a batter’s home run. As the video shows, it didn't work and the batter just wiped the dirt aside. But that umpire looks really shady.

Def Leppard Meets Deaf Leopards

Love this story. The band Def Leppard visited the Arkansas School for the Deaf, which has a leopard as its mascot. The internet, of course, went crazy.


Good Brown

This story about Browns guard Cameron Erving is great. Athletes get a lot of bad press, but some really make a positive difference in the world.


Weird Brown


Mind. Blown.
