The Lakers’ 96-92 loss to the Hawks tonight already would have been a disappointment – with the Jazz falling 110-87 to the Thunder, the game presented a golden opportunity to put a bit of distance between L.A. and Utah for the West’s eighth seed. But the Lakers couldn’t get the job done… and then lost their franchise player.

Marc Staal Took A Puck To The Eye, And It Looked Awfully Painful

Did you know there was a day, not so long ago, where NHL players just didn’t wear helmets at all? Looking back on that now, it seems super dumb. One day when all NHLers are required to don face masks, we might be singing a similar song. Or at the very least, Marc Staal will.

The Strange Case Of Rory McIlroy’s Sudden Withdrawal From The Honda Classic

It wasn’t a good day for Rory McIlroy.

And then, he… just walked off.

Hey Serena Williams, Try Not To Smack Yourself In The Face With Your Racket On The Forehand Follow-Through

Serena Williams won her Australian Open second round match 6-2, 6-0 over Spanish teenager Garbine Muguruza today, but at the expense of her face. After tracking down the ball and swinging a forehand return, her racket on the follow-through caught her lip, splitting it open and drawing blood. Not a good thing, though we look forward to whatever Caroline Wozniacki has in store.
