4. NBA Playoffs: Eastern Conference Playoffs-Philadelphia 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls (Game 5 Tuesday 9:30pm from Chicago live on NBA TV, Game 6 & 7 TBD); Orlando Magic vs. Indiana Pacers (Game 5 Tuesday 7pm from Indianapolis live on NBA TV, Game 6 & 7 TBD); Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks (Game 5 Tuesday 8pm from Atlanta live on TNT, Game 6 & 7 TBD), Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks (Game 5 Wednesday 7pm from Miami live on TNT, Game 6 & 7 TBD); Western Conference Playoffs-Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets (Game 5 Tuesday 10:30pm from LA live on TNT, Game 6 & 7 TBD), Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies (Wednesday 9:30pm from Memphis live on TNT, Game 6 & 7 TBD)

Remember how the playoffs were supposed to be really good this year?

Let me know when if that happens.

By the way, Yahoo! Sports just pointed out to me that Allen Iverson’s infamous “practice’ rant was 10 years ago Monday. So I’m probably going to go drink now….

3. Golf: PGA Tour THE PLAYERS Championship (Thursday & Friday 1pm live on Golf Channel, Saturday & Sunday 12pm live on Golf Channel 2pm live on NBC. All golf from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL)

Rickie Fowler won a golf tournament. I have nothing else to say about golf at the moment.

So listen to this song because I like it. Cheers.

2. NHL Playoffs: New York Rangers @ Washington Capitals Game 6 (Wednesday 7:30pm from Verizon Center live on NBC Sports Network), Washington Capitals @ New York Rangers Game 7 if necessary (Saturday TBD from New York live on NBC)

Which do you think is more attractive to me? This picture of Natalia Velez…

…or this video of Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith not letting the puck go in the net?


1. College Lacrosse: NCAA Tournament-Canisius @ Loyola (Saturday 5pm from Ridley Athletic Complex live on ESPNU), Stony Brook @ Johns Hopkins (Sunday 3pm from Homewood Field live on ESPNU), Maryland @ Lehigh (Sunday 7:30pm from Bethlehem, PA live on ESPNU); Division III NCAA Tournament-Birmingham Southern @ Stevenson (Wednesday TBA Mustang Stadium)

I just pray to God Lehigh can’t do it again…

But I still love that!

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
