Today was remarked my many (including me) as the biggest sports day ever! With some playoff games and the big May-Pac fight of the century coming up, here’s a recap on today so far…
NFL Draft (Rd 4,5,6,7): The final rounds of the NFL draft finished just now with Louisville TE Gerald Christian being the lucky one drafted last as Mr.Irrelivent by AZ! This has been an amazing draft with some great steals but no major trades as in big NFL players with the Jets getting Zac Stacy and Deveir Posey in trades as the only team! A big storyline from today is LSU’s La’el Collins being  undrafted as a projected 1st rounder by many. He has been with Police in Baton Rouge discussion the shooting of his former girlfriend. Draft wise this is a surprise as he is a great player but it’s a risk like how the Broncos drafted Shane Ray and the Cowboys got Randy Gregory after they had drug cases recently… The Jets got their QB in Bryce Petty who is a great player but must prove himself to take away Geno’s spot at QB… Another story to look after is the Cowboys who lost leading NFL rusher DeMarco Murray did NOT draft a RB in this whole draft with so many great RB’s on the board through all 7 rounds and Vetran Darren McFadden being #1 on the depth chart in front of Lance Dunbar and others…

Playoffs-

In the NHL the Rangers took home maybe their most important game this postseason with a 3-2 win over the Caps heading to Washington. The Caps won game 1 with a Joe Ward goal with 1.3 left on the clock and shocked the garden. Chris Krider had his 1st goal this postseason today while Boyle and Brassard added on. For Washington, Kuznetsov and Ovechkin scored but it wasn’t enough…

In basketball the defending champ Spurs face the Clippers in LA to finish off round 1 with round 2 starting tomorrow! This game 7 will be hard fought and it would be a heartbreaking exit for ether team with San Antonio breaking their streak of NBA finals and may have had the last good year of their legacy under Pop with Timmy D or the Clippers make another early exit vs a tough team and may enter panic mode after they’ve done everything they’ve could to become a playoff favorite. My opinion is if they lose, they may have to have a OKC Thunder situation after they fired their great coach Scott Brooks for decorated Florida U coach Billy Donovan!  The Clips may have to give up on their big plan under Coach Doc after trading for him…

The Kentucky Derby just happened too with Victor Espinoza and the favorite horse American Pharaoh taking home his 3rd (2nd straight) Kentucky Derby! Notably last year Espinoza nearly took a legendary Triple Crown win home with California Chrome winning Kentucky and Belmont! Congrats to Victor on another great outing in the big race!

Last but for sure not least is the fight of the century tonight with Phillipinian Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd “Money” Mayweather in the fight that we all say would be better 5 years ago! Anyway after all the waiting and the crazy lead up to making this fight happen we will experience greatness tonight with 47-0 Mayweather who is all about the money and trash talk while being a great boxer which really makes me want to root for Manny Pacquiao who isn’t the man with the perfect record but when row super hard. I guess I hate a bit too much on Mr.Money but many people do too which shows that many people may think Mayweather will win but are behind Pacquiao to win. I want Pacquiao but think this fight will be worth the record high price and bets with an incredible showing hopefully with all the Vegas hype and glimpse and glamor!
