We have finally arrived at money season in the NHL and NBA—the playoffs. This is when teams find out if all the trades and free agent signings were worth it. Both leagues kicked off their respective playoffs this week (NHL this past Wednesday and NBA on Saturday) and both have been highly entertaining thus far and will only get better as the weeks go on. The sad part is that we only have two months left before its just baseball.
But two months is a long way from here so let’s focus on the present. The NFL dominated the headlines this week with one player getting reinstated, one sentenced to life in prison and another improbably signed by a soon-to-be-fired coach. See which player did what and what else went down in this edition of Sporting*Goods.
