1. Sam is a Ram

With the 249th pick in the NFL draft, St. Louis selected Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to attempt to make an NFL roster. Viewing tip: If seeing men touch one each other offends you, the NFL may not be the sport for you.

2. Bummed Steers

For the first time since 1937, not a single Texas Longhorn is taken in the NFL draft. Adding insult to... insult, former Longhorn QB Garrett Gilbert, who transferred after losing the starting job, was taken in the sixth round.

4. A Shot for Mom

Three days after his mom's passing, Martin St. Louis of the Rangers scores a goal on Mother's Day as New York forces a Game 7 against Pittsburgh.

5. Areola Feeling Well?
