With the Pacers in rapid decline and the Heat sliding not far behind, anything seems possible. Check that: almost anything (sorry, Charlotte). With hopes of early upsets, here are my picks for the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The whole interview was an embarrassment, from his insistence that recent changes have nothing to do with the unionization effort, to his pathetic claim that many universities would just go to Division III sports if unions became a reality.
Dick and Rick Hoyt, you have inspired a new generation of fatherhood. Let us never forget your example, and let us always watch for ways where we, too, can make sacrifices for our children.

High Ankle Sprain,
The surgery has sparked concerns that his better days may be behind him. Before anyone can call it quits for Manning, its best to understand the surgery he had performed and what that really means in terms of recovery.

The Knicks are one of the most profitable teams in the NBA, as they had the average ticket price on the secondary market this season. With the amount of revenue even two playoff games would have created, Madison Square Garden is likely losing out without the Knicks in the playoffs.
Photo by Josie Lepe/Bay Area News Group San Francisco, CA - Off to a good start, Ryan Vogelsong pitched his best game of the season. He tossed more than five innings for the first time in the 2-1 decision over the Dodgers....
Hall Of Fame,
New York Yankees,
Baseball is a game where teams are currently trying to innovate to gain a slight advantage over other teams. The Yankees failure to do this has become almost their franchise identity, but missing another opportunity this year is nonetheless unfortunate.
Efforts to reform Asian soccer governance have stalled more than a year after FIFA ousted disgraced former Asian Football Confederation president Mohammed Bin Hammam in the sport's worst corruption scandal that tainted multiple members of the executive committees of both the world soccer and the Asian soccer body.
One And Done,
Not once did Jim Nance mention that Jordan Spieth should have stayed at the University of Texas. Apparently Jim Nance didn't know that Spieth was a "one and a half and done," leaving in the middle of his second year.
When the good people of the Boston Athletic Association decided to extend a guaranteed entry to all the 2013 runners who hadn't been able to finish, of course I accepted. No question. But why am I taking my daughter?

"You just can't retaliate," she stressed. "The blame always falls on the player who retaliates." I knew she was right.
By being lucky enough to have lived in and loved that city, I will always be Boston strong. To know the city is to love the city, and I look forward to celebrating hope, strength, and Bostonians on April 21.

I feared, way back in 2011, that the league's castoffs had figured out what they apparently now have: it doesn't matter if you do anything illegal in the NHL.
