04/20 (DC) Quickie

Apologies for the late posting today -- I zipped down to DC for some business (hoping to enjoy watching the Caps in a Caps-friendly bar tonight, along with Thunder-Nuggets, if the bar will let a TV be on anything but the Caps).

*The NFL schedule release was everything the NFL hoped it would be -- namely, taken at face value, with more focus on "Ooh! Look at that match-up!" than "Ooh! Week 1 ain't gonna be played."

*The Knicks found an even more brutal way to end a playoff game in Boston against the Celtics. Great game by Melo; awful finish by the ragtag group. That they were in a position to win it in the final seconds is a moral victory. (The whole thing is a moral victory -- no one had them advancing anyway, so playing the Celtics close is as much as anyone could ask of them.)

*NBA Draft: Kentucky's Brandon Knight and Terrence Jones are smart to enter the draft. They were Lottery locks before the other top collegians decided to go back to school. Both could go in the Top 10 (if not even higher) and no guarantee either would have gone that high next year.

*The robot that threw at the first pitch for the Phillies today clunked it short. Humans rule!
