If you go into the draft's TV coverage with the mind-set that it's purely entertainment, you won't be disappointed. This year's obvious highlights (in no particular order) included: the 47 ESPN analysts trying not to swear/laugh when the Raiders took
Last week it was
Sometimes the Texas Tech football coach is outspoken, interesting and hilarious, and other times people just think he is and give him the benefit of the doubt. This time, it's clearly the former. Leach thinks his star receiver,
The Royals' ace has allowed only one run the entire season, and it wasn't even earned. He may not be making ace money yet (the 25-year-old right-hander signed a four-year, $38 million deal before the season), but at this point, it's probably a good idea to just hire a bodyguard as a precautionary measure to keep him far, far away from
A record crowd of 95,722 showed up to see the Buckeyes' annual Scarlet and Gray game. The obvious draws here are getting an early look at the defending Big 10 champs, seeing how top underclassmen perform and knowing that this is one newsworthy Ohio State game on the national stage that the team can't possibly lose.
Tyler, a 6-foot-11 high school junior from San Diego, decided to continue his basketball career professionally in Europe, thus ending his time in school.

The series really gets more exciting each time they play and demands your constant, undivided attention. From one series to another, heroes become goats, and vice versa. In a way, the rivalry defines not only baseball, but life itsel ... zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
I may not be the biggest hockey fan, so please excuse my lack of knowledge regarding regulations, but surely there's no subsection or article of the NHL rule book that allows for coaches to start impromptu squirt fights with opposing fans mid-game, as the Rangers' coach did in Washington, D.C., with taunting Capitals fans.

Around this time every year, a big deal is made of which player or players will appear on the upcoming incarnations of EA Sports' extremely popular NCAA Football and Madden franchises. I'm not exactly sure who gets excited to see who'll be on the cases that you look at maybe once in the store, but it seems excessive and pretty nerdy. Now if we can please get down to business, I'd like to know whether the in-season recruiting feature in NCAA Football has been updated to reflect new regulations covering video chatting and Facebook, as well as the effectiveness of the new ability to negatively recruit players away from certain schools. That is all.
