The Morning After: April 20, 2011

It’s so nice now that the NBA playoffs are in full swing. Mix that in with the NFL Draft chatter and the start of baseball PBA season and you’ve got a nice sports scene. Next thing you know, May will be here and the French Open will commence and the that means the U.S. Open (golf version) is right around the corner.

Speaking of the NBA playoffs, last night’s action saw the Celtics squeak out another win over the Knicks, while the Magic evened their series with the Hawks and the Mavericks took a two-game lead over the Trail Blazers.

Superlatives go out to Dwight Howard, Dirk Nowitzki and Rajon Rondo. The big story out of the night was Amar’e Stoudemire’s back spasms. If he can’t get that under control, this series is as good as gone as far as the Knicks are concerned.

Tonight’s games include Oklahoma City’s attempt at going up 2-0, San Antonio trying to avoid going down 0-2 and Los Angeles looking to do likewise. Now, onto the links.

HBO has already renewed Game of Thrones for a second season. Sweet.

The Phillies are going to trot out a robot to throw the first pitch in today’s game against the Brewers.

Here is some cool photography from National Geographic.

The greatest golfer you’ve never heard of.

The Lakers need Pau to be…Pau.

Did Cam Newton fail the Gruden test?

USC quarterback Matt Barkley might have to be a one-man show this year.

Tennessee’s Tyler Bray was 5/30 in the Vols’ spring game…Derek Dooley needn’t worry.

Here is a cool interactive page for the newly-released NFL 2011 schedule (assuming they have one).

  1. Here is some cool photography from National Geographic.

    I saw a National Geographic mag in an airport newstand last week and commented to my wife that I forgot that they still published. I used to love reading it whan I was growing up and my dad had a subscription. I remember helping to clean out some old closets after my granddad died and finding National Geographics that HIS dad had bought back in the 19-teens. Thomas Edison was an editor back then and I read an article he wrote about oil extraction from shale. it was still relevant and almost 90 years old.

  2. Did Cam Newton fail the Gruden test?

    uh, I just look to the sideline and they give me a number. 36. that’s the play. 36.

    My parents had a subscription from the min-70s on, and I had one too for a while. I dropped it when it moved from hard science & sociological articles to more environmental articles over and over

  4. Ok, so are we allowed to put the girl on the main page again? Because I will definitely do that instead of putting a stupid Happy Hour thing on my posts.
