Life is good as America’s sweetheart.
Every day, he’s doing something for the first time: attending a hockey game, sitting courtside at a basketball game, kicking it with Hulk Hogan and Charlie Sheen and Dennis Rodman earlier on this day. NFL Twitter nearly spontaneously combusted when Griffin ran that 4.38 in the 40-yard dash—the likes of J.J. Watt, Deion Sanders and Ryan Shazier all showering him with love.
In addition to Bird, the Yankees are slowly learning more about injured third baseman Brandon Drury, too. Drury is awaiting the results of the extensive testing he underwent to his head, brain and body last week after going on the 10-day disabled list April 7 with migraines and blurred vision.
Drury told reporters Monday that he was put on a cycle of anti-inflammatory medication. His migraine specialist believes that will help relieve some of that pressure and tension that is causing the blurred vision.
C) Yes, it’s risky taking a quarterback early. But it’s also risky not taking a quarterback early. The Raiders messed up big time picking JaMarcus Russell in a 2007 NFL Draft that saw Calvin Johnson, Joe Thomas, and Adrian Peterson go in the next six picks. But they also messed up three years earlier by taking Robert Gallery instead of Philip Rivers.

James led all players with 44 minutes played — none more entertaining than when he was matched up against his old foe, Lance Stephenson.
