Your morning roundup for May 6, the day Willie Mays becomes an octogenarian.
• An 80-year-old woman and two-year-old boy remained hospitalized after a riderless wild horse decided to jump into the crowd at the Grand Annual Steeplechase at the Warrnambool carnival. It was described as "a hell of a spectacle." [Herald Sun] [ABC.net.au]
• In keeping with just the type of exciting playoff round for which the NHL league office lusts, the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Nashville Predators 4-2 last night. They now lead Nashville 3-1. Context: Among teams trailing/defeated in the second round, the Predators are the only one that's won a game yet. [Vancouver Sun]
• That's of secondary interest, though. Of primary interest is taking a moment to watch what happens to the cameraman who decided to film the Predators ice entry from the middle of a mechanical-fog cloud. [Outside the Box]
• Washington Capitals owner and semi-colon enthusiast Ted Leonsis knows that, in the wake of getting swept out of the playoffs by the Lightning, "people are emotional; angry; and demand change. I understand. The best course of action for us though is to let a few days pass; be very analytic about what needs to be improved; articulate that plan; and then execute upon it." [Ted's Take]
