04/28 (Very) Quickie

I'd say it's a pretty good sports day today: End of NFL Draft, start of NBA Playoffs, Caps-Rangers Game 1, Bryce Harper's MLB debut (with Stephen Strasburg pitching, no less).

My favorite NFL Draft storyline from last night was Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu -- victim of a nasty prank call on Thursday night that he had been drafted by the Bengals -- was... drafted by the Bengals.

(Runner-up: Much-maligned former Florida CB Janoris Jenkins was taken in the 2nd round by the Rams -- arguably the most high-risk/high-reward prospect since Randy Moss.)

Heat-Knicks at 3:30 is the most must-see NBA game -- although Thunder-Mavs tonight is close. If the Knicks were going to steal one, today is the day.

DC is having a hell of a sports week, but as exciting as drafting RG3 and the MLB promotion of Bryce Harper might be, this afternoon's opener against the Rangers is the biggest event.

That said: There are few MLB "live cut-in" at-bat moments worth making sure you're around for -- even though the chances are he'll fizzle in his first game, Harper feels worth tuning in to check out.
