Zach Wasser | April 19, 2014 | Sports
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.

Mark Emmert's Clown Show

Jonathan Weiler | April 18, 2014 | Sports
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.

Without Knicks in NBA Playoffs, Madison Square Garden Misses Out on Millions in Revenue

Jesse Lawrence | April 17, 2014 | Sports
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.

Now Playing First Base for the Yankees

Lincoln Mitchell | April 17, 2014 | Sports
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.

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.

Tish Hamilton | April 16, 2014 | Sports
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?

The Miami Heat Did Not Want the Number One Seed

J.J. Colagrande | April 15, 2014 | Miami
Let's be honest. Miami doesn't want or need the number one seed. Why? Because the number one seed is destined for a possible second round match-up against the Brooklyn Nets, perhaps the only team that holds our kryptonite.

Daniel Sedin, Paul Byron, and the NHL Brendan Shanahan Left Behind

Kolby Solinsky | April 14, 2014 | Canada British Columbia
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. You'll get a refreshing, short suspension and the other team you just crippled will still be suffering from it when you get back. That hit by Byron on Sedin was a perfect showcase of the problems Brendan Shanahan has created and then left for this league going forward.
