04/29 Quickie: Caps, Bucks, Mets, More

I'm not going to offend Capitals fans by claiming to be a big Caps fan and fully understand the obliteration of last night's loss. But you don't have to be a Caps fan -- or even a hockey fan -- to appreciate the chokery in DC: The first 1-seed to lose a 3-1 series lead in NHL Playoff history.

As I lead in today's SN column, it instantly becomes the defining detail of Alexander Ovechkin's MVP career.

Again, I try to stay away from hockey, because I don't follow the sport closely. But this result transcends hockey into something bigger, particularly because it involves the league's best player -- and one of the biggest stars in all of sports. And it's rough.

More you'll find in today's column:

*Speaking of chokes... the Hawks?

*Does the Mavs season end tonight in San Antonio?

*Suspend Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland?

*The Mets are the new Braves -- and vice versa.

*Tim Lincecum with the ND of the Year

*Hopefully, Tiger will get at least one heckler at Quail Hollow.

See the complete column here. More later.

I hate to tell you but Sidney Crosby is the best player in the NHL
