Steven Kruijswijk took a three minute lead into the the final weekend of the Giro d’Italia—the second-biggest stage race in the world after the Tour de France—which looked like a fairly safe lead over Colombian sparkplug Esteban Chaves and mopey Sicilian Vincenzo Nibali (another minute and a half behind Chaves). Both…
British pop singer Karen Harding had one job before today’s FA Cup Final at Wembley: to sing “God Save The Queen.” It didn’t work out so well for her—having missed her cue, she stood silently for most of the anthem before finally chiming in for the final few words. At least those are the most important, right?
The Vertical’s Shams Charania has a scoop that does not make the Milwaukee Bucks look very good. According to Charania, someone in the organization recently fell for a phishing scam, and sent players’ private financial data to a scammer.
The NBA draft lottery is tonight at 8 p.m., but Dikembe Mutombo’s Twitter account couldn’t wait until then to congratulate the Philadelphia 76ers for winning the first overall pick. The tweet, which had a photo of Mutombo and Allen Iverson, was quickly deleted.

ESPN analyst Jay Williams forgot to silence his phone before going live on SportsCenter this morning, and just like when you forgot to do it before going to church today, it rang at the most inappropriate moment. Williams laughed it off, suggesting it was one of the coaches to talk strategy—but who do you think is…
There was a very hard-to-believe bit of gossip buried in a NOLA.com article this morning.

This time last year, Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison was getting ready to start on Opening Day. Yesterday, he found himself making his final start of spring training, with one last chance to secure a spot in the big-league rotation. Things were going okay for about four innings, until Hutchison had to leave the game…
ESPN’s NFL Live bit hard on a fake tweet about defensive end Olivier Vernon signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars today.
