Broom service: Walpurgis, named after Saint Walpurga and celebrated in central and northern European countries, is traditionally marked by bonfires, witches and dancing to usher in the spring season and NHL playoffs, though the Devils didn't make it this year.

Racism reared its ugly head in the world of basketball and was swiftly chopped off by the NBA's outraged commish, who wielded the sword of righteousness with the ferocity of Michonne in <italics>The Walking Dead</italics>. Unfortunately, the head is expected to live on, a la some of the show's hideous bodyless gourds.

Japanese fans are beefing about the mean ol' monster that's celebrating its 60th year of pickin' up buses and throwin' 'em back down, and starring in a Hollywood reboot of the post-war sci-fi classic. They say his recent incarnation is too fat and has been "super-sized" by an America used to ingesting large portions of grub. Basically, the <italics>New York Post</italics> feels the same way about the fellow in the next frame.

Snickers are on the menu at the <italics>New York Post </italics>where giggling headline writers have been feasting on the Mets' round moundsman. Among their meatier efforts: "Lardball", "Rock The Bloat", "Get A Load of This!" and "Fat Chance" along with references to the Mets "blubbering" about signing the hurler who is now their "meal ticket." Rallying to Colon's defense, the offended Amazin's refused to speak with Post writer Mike Puma, who scribbled the "Lardball" story. Alas, baseball has a long, storied history of rotund righties and portly portsiders.

Lip service: The Pirates right fielder has a substantive suggestion for Yankees hurler Michael Pineda, who was caught doctoring balls with pine tar two weeks ago and subsequently suspended.

The Brazilian Victoria's Secret model did her part to get the visiting San Jose Sharks off their game during a visit to L.A.'s Staples Center for a tilt with the Kings. The ploy worked as the Sharks coughed up a three-games-to-none lead in the series and were deep-sixed in Game 7.

The supermodel, whose racy ad for scratchy wool underdrawers raised eyebrows, was seen cavorting about the "Encore Beach Club at Night" launch at Wynn Las Vegas in, of all places, Las Vegas.

The bull was flying fast and furious at the Convict Poker table in Angola, La., Jailbirds who wish to compete in the event must pass a physical and be deemed strong and healthy enough to be run over and gored by boisterous bovines.

While wowing with bravura performances on <italics>Dancing With The Stars</italics>, the widely admired U.S. Olympic gold medalists will, we hear, ultimately return to their day jobs peddling foil-wrapped chocolate coins at the AT&T Store in West Hollywood.

International Medieval Combat
Swedish and Polish (not Boogie) knights do battle at Spain's Belmonte Castle. According to the notes that came free with this photo, "Medieval combat is a contact sport (<italics>we'll say!</italics>) based on medieval tournaments (<italics>makes sense</italics>) in Europe during the 14th and 15th centuries." Tough stuff to be sure, but it can't hold a flanged mace to the NHL playoffs.

Now <italics>that's </italics>a contact sport! Linesman Pierre Racicot got in on a fracas between Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr (right) and San Jose Sharks winger Brent Burns during their first-round playoff series. Here's a closer (if you dare) look at your typical hockey combatants.

How's bayou? Well, Vijay Singh had to wait for a wild alligator purse to get out of the way before he could take a shot during the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.
