Your thirsty Thursday links will be a bit parched today, but wet your lips anyway:
The Pistons lost to this guy last night:
They are 4-20, which should lead to plenty of lotto balls and hopefully one brow. Speaking of which, I've got the NBA lottery on lockdown.
One of the toughest parts of being an NHL goalie has to be figuring out what you want painted on your helmet. Jimmy Howard and Ty Conklin discuss their face paint.
Lions defensive end Cliff Avril doesn't want to be franchise tagged (which doesn't provide him the job security that he hopes to obtain). Facebook tagged? Sure, but not franchise tagging.
You can get your Prince Fielder sherseys at the Tigers store. Popcorn may or may not be served.
Tom Brady was almost Jonah Keri's favorite baseball player.
Michigan had 24 commitments and 14 of those are defense.
Poor Ohio State -- they don't like being called "Ohio" so some die-hard idiot decided to do this...

Baseball season is only a few, short months away! Here are 10 story lines to start getting you ready for hot dogs, beer, and everything baseball…
1. Can the National League still compete?
No Prince Fielder. No Albert Pujols. No Ryan Braun (At least for a while). With the National League losing arguably their best hitters to the American League (Or suspension in Braun’s...
When it comes to baseball's battle of leagues, it's no contest: the AL is king. Especially now, Danny Knobler says, with Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder switching leagues and the NL's big-market teams in disarray.
