We bring you the weekend wrap up to get you through your Monday morning chatter at the office.
But not before coffee,
The Last Night’s Game Team
Coming up roses. In one of the wettest races in history, the horse Justify did what everyone expected him to do – win the Kentucky Derby. Something unexpected was a Texas woman’s $18 bet at a local track that turned into a $1.2 million win. She cashed in after picking the correct Derby winner and the winning horses of the four races before. Let’s hope her good luck rubs off on Justify in the newfound quest for the Triple Crown.

Lady Antebellum joined the big names to sing the national anthem before a Nashville Predators playoff game (NHL – National Hockey League). The anthem, which is not the easiest song to sing, has a way of humbling even the greatest of singers. The trio botched the lyrics but least they had a great sense of humor afterward stating on Twitter, “Welp. We’re human too y’all We’re still rooting for ya Preds!!!” No use crying over spilt milk. REACTIONS
Whew it was a big weekend in MLB (Major League Baseball). Not only did Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim’s Albert Pujols secure his place in history with his 3,000th hit, the Los Angeles Dodgers pitching staff combined for a no-hitter and of course the best part, the first use of the crazy fast bullpen cart. WATCH IT GO
You had one job. The Philadelphia 76ers (NBA – National Basketball Association) hit a shot at the end of their playoff game, which the confetti guy though was a winning shot. Unfortunately for him, the shot only tied the game and the 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics in overtime (after cleaning up all of the “victory” confetti on the court). OOPS!
What to watch
Tonight, two teams might be sent home in the NBA playoffs. The Cleveland Cavaliers could sweep the Toronto Raptors and the Celtics could do the same to the 76ers. (WHAT’S A SWEEP)? Carrying the Cavs is their star LeBron James, who was spoofed in a hilarious skit on Saturday Night Live this weekend. WATCH
