It's the middle of April, which mean's it's officially playoff season. Plus, happy 27th birthday, Emma Watson!
'Tis the Playoff Season
Crystal Ball: Who will win the 2017 NBA Finals? The NBA Power Rankings Playoff Edition and five players facing most pressure this postseason. And in the hockey world, a pair of Canadian teams got huge Game 2 wins on Friday night and the Blue Jackets' Matt Calvert delivered a brutal cheap shot against the Pens.
Jackie Robinson Day
70 years ago today, #42 made his debut. A look back at a timeline of the all-time great's best moments, achievements and plays. And, seven decades after Robinson broke the color barrier, MLB is still facing a problem with African American participation at youth levels.
While Robinson's debut is a great landmark, April 15th also is an unfortunately monumental day in history: Abraham Lincoln also died after being shot the night before, the Titantic sunk in wee hours of April 15, 1912 and the Boston Marathon was bombed.
This is so weird
Of all the things I'd do or say to a ref if I had an anger problem, pinching his butt would likely not high on the list. The head of a Tunisian soccer club kissed a referee on the cheek, bit his ear and pinched his butt ... TWICE. He got a lifetime ban.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Fleck goes HARD
This is so weird (Pt. 2)
Free relief from the kangaroos?

Think you can do Easter better than an SI Swimsuit model? https://t.co/rpszZGJcZc pic.twitter.com/mFhuJtAyqC — SI Swimsuit (@SI_Swimsuit) April 14, 2017
Odds and Ends
Pitt honoring Dan Rooney with special Steelers/Panthers helmets at spring game ... Gronk's weekend in Vegas looked mildly fun ... Knicks update: They're still a mess ... Matt Kemp wears sweet custom Jackie Robinson cleats ... ... Shaq is paying for the funeral of the teen who accidentally killed himself on Instagram ... Apparently the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch are not as close to a deal as people thought ... Jay Cutler's former teammate has theory why Cutler hasn't been signed
Maybe avoid the narrow part of the pool next time
