The Nashville Predators won the Presidents’ Trophy which means they had the best regular season record in the NHL. That is in no way a guarantee that you do well in the playoffs. Well they went out with a whimper as they were crushed 5-1 by Winnipeg in Game 7 in Nashville.
The hard part, watching someone like Pekka Rinne get chased and then just sit in the tunnel.
How about the welcome Andrew McCutchen got when we showed up in Pittsburgh as a member of the San Francisco Giants.
While that was impressive, this may be more so. Shohei Ohtani’s batting practice in Denver.
But this was the most impressive. Stephen Piscotty was having the start of a good career in St. Louis. But the Northern California native’s mother was ill. She had Lou Gehrig’s disease. So what did St. Louis and Oakland do? They made a trade is off season to get Piscotty back to the bay area. His mother passed away a week ago. When he came up to bat in his first game back he received this ovation from the fans and opposing team.
These are the reasons I love baseball.
Lyoto Machida has a tendency to send folks into a retirement with a front kick to the face for the KO.
Speaking of retirement, Darian Durant has called it a career. Who, you ask? Durant played at UNC and then went on to an impressive career in the CFL. He has two Grey Cup’s to his name, threw for over 31,000 yards and 165 touchdowns. Oh, he’s only 5’11”.

The NFL draft had it’s share of great moments. Here are a few.
Ryan Shazier walking out on stage to announce the Steelers first round pick.
David Akers….owning it.
Shaquem Griffin getting drafted. Impossible is nothing.
Lebron being Lebron.
The first home goal for LAFC.
The Tennessee Titans did it again. Pounding beers and firing up the Nashville Predators crowd.
Meanwhile, San Francisco Giants third baseman turned into their best reliever.
Gotta love the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
One of the great things about sports is that it reminds us how good we can be as human beings.
Always love these moments.
It takes more than just the players.
Scary moment during the Cubs v Rockies game. Fortunately Bryant wasn’t seriously hurt. He’s doing as good as can be expected.
Bryce Harper did something very impressive, he hit a home run while breaking his bat. Damn.
It’s arguably the best postseason in all of sports. And the opening games proved why.
The game winner…
And how excited are people in Las Vegas about the Golden Knights? Well how bout this send off for Game 3.
Well the NBA Playoffs started too, and this was an awesome shot to send the game into OT.
This is just a great story. A professional career stuck in the minors and when you get the call, you light it up.
Then there is this. Rex Culpepper throws a touchdown. It may not sound like a big deal but to him it is. In fact, he starts his second round of chemo on Monday because he is battling testicular cancer.
Cristiano Ronaldo did it again. He did the amazing that even gave the opposing clubs fans a reason to stand and cheer.
Well, that’s an amazing save.
Even if you hate golf, you have to like these.
Things you’d expect to see in minor league baseball are now in the majors such as,
A bald eagle landing on a player…..
Snow storm for a home opener….
And a hockey stick for an opening pitch.
While ejections can weaker and weaker.
Two of the better, and stranger, walk offs you’ll see.
And then there was this in the 14th inning.
The UFC’s biggest star did this….
Which took a couple of fighters off of the UFC 223 card. Then NYPD did this…
But remember, there are more good folks in sports then there are bad. While McGregor did what he did and was charge with a crime, Tennessee Titans quarterback did this for the Special Olympics.
And his reward, $0. But hey, bet he’d do it again.
Thats’s how you start a season!
Zlatan showed up in LA on Thursday.
Then on Saturday in the first derby between LA Galaxy and LAFC, Zlatan put on a display that put a smile on everyone’s face….unless you are an LAFC fan.
This might get better with age….
Well it is spring but don’t tell Mother Nature that. She, and Father Time, are the only two to ever be undefeated. Take note NASCAR.
Ooooooohhhh!!!! Is pretty much how ever one reacted when they saw this….
Most of the time Pekka Rinne is much better than this. But for Make – A – Wish, we absolutely make an exception.
Well he’s not a kid anymore….but still amazing.
When you see that 135-1, remember, UMBC is that 1.
Let’s face it, Rory was on fire today.
Scott Frost played under Tom Osborne. So it should be no surprise that Frost has a little Osborne in him.
Ok, I get that not all Americans are football fans but there are some basic things that you could at least hazard a guess on. Couldn’t ya? Dallas Cowboys? You can’t offer that up as a guess? As an NFL saying goes, “C’mon Man!”
Something cool about this. No phone calls, no letters or tweets. Just a good ole fashion knock on the door. Welcome class of 2018.
Moss will make ya cry.
McDavid being McDavid.
And of course after this, security missed this guy coming out from the crowd….
Age doesn’t matter cause when you got it, you got it.
