NFL News:

  • Mark Davis ‘enjoyed’ Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals last night, which is a “big deal” because OMG the Raiders are moving there soon.
    • It’s so hard to tell, because he looks like one of Jeff Dunham’s puppets taking a break.
  • By the power of BOLTMAN!, San Diego has secured the 6th AAF franchise.
    • To ensure their mediocrity, they have already secured Mike Martz as head coach.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. expects to be medically cleared to return by June 12.
    • About the time Mandatory mini-camp opens.
  • The Steelers are trying out George Kenneth “Trey” Griffey III out at WR.
    • Yes – he’s Ken Griffey Junior’s kid. He was signed to a reserves/futures contract in January.
    • If that fails, he can always go into the family business, because he was drafted in the 24th round of the MLB draft by the Mariners.
  • John Elway (pictured) failed to qualify for the US Senior Open, being held at the Broadmoor Country Club in Colorado Springs.
    • He shot a 10-over 80, placing him 18th.
      • Placing 15th would’ve meant Tebow was coming back.
    • He is honorary chairman for the event.
    • As a 1.4 handicap golfer, he fit into the amateur qualification bracket for play-in entry to the tournament.

Finally, many sites are agog at Laurent Duvernay-Tardif graduating from McGill medical school yesterday.

  • I’m not sure if it’s because he actually did it, or because they believe he’ll eventually have to treat himself for CTE.
  • He has spent every offseason since being drafted in 2014 working towards this end, so it shouldn’t be shocking.
    • He wants to pursue a residency in emergency medicine.
  • Considering how many players now have “III” or “Sr.” or “Jr.” on their jersey, I’d love for him to wear “M.D.” or be able to sport this look:

  • Fun fact: Andy Reid’s mother also graduated from McGill medical school.
    • Because they accepted women, at a time when most US schools did not.

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL: Game 2 Wednesday
  • NBA: Game 1 Thursday
  • MLB:
    • no national US broadcasts
    • Blue Jays at Red Sox – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
