1. Show Claws Penalty
 
Heisman winner Jameis Winston is cited after bootlegging $32 worth of king crab legs and crawfish from a Tallahassee Publix. Blames "youthful ignorance."
 
2. Home Cooking
 
For the first night since the NBA playoffs began, the home teams hold court, as Toronto and San Antonio take 3-2 series leads, while Houston staves off elimination.
 
3. My D'Antoni
 
Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni resigns after his talent-depleted team finishes with its worst record since 1958. Lakers legend Magic Johnson tweets "Happy days are here again."
 
4. Sharknado II
 
A new set of Sharks ravage Los Angeles --this time an NHL team from San Jose with a 3-0 series lead-- but the Kings repel the invasion with four straight wins to advance in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Ian Ziering not necessary.
 
5. Zack Attack
 
Dodgers co-ace (we haven't forgotten you, Clayton Kershaw) Zack Greinke improves to 5-0 while pitching at least five innings and allowing two or fewer runs for the 18th consecutive time. That feat  was last accomplished in 1914.
