Freudian slip? No joke. CSN Chicago’s Susannah Collins had the most unfortunate of on-screen slipups Tuesday night while reporting about the Blackhawks. Collins, channeling the fervor of the Stanley Cup playoffs beginning, jumped into her inside scoop on the hometown team — and then uttered a phrase that hockey fans likely found far more interesting. Collins was trying to explain that the Blackhawks are treating the playoffs as a whole new season, leaving behind their points streak and 36-7-5 record. Her lead-in, however, suggested that the Hawks have been doing more than playing hockey this season. “Despite the fact that they’ve had such a tremendous amount of sex during the regular season,” Collins began. Like a pro, she realized her mistake and went back and said “success” instead, but the damage was done. Collins’ mistake will live on, as she’s chosen a profession that broadcasts every tongue-tie to the world (as opposed to this medium, where the backspace key can quickly take care of any ill-formed jokes that this situation so easily offers). Kudos to her for being a champ and staying on the job, and here’s hoping for better — spell it now, s-u-c-c-e-s-s — in the next round. Check out Collins’ gaffe in the video below, complete with a loud guffaw from the viewer. Photo of the Day No, it’s not giveaway night in Arizona. Cody Ross has just lost control of his bat. Tweet of the Day With D.C quickly running out of controversial things to talk about, the Nationals are fighting over whether they’d like their fans to do the wave. Bryce Harper jumps in. Nats fans keep doing the wave, it's a beautiful thing! Keep the wave in Nats park! #baseball #keepthewave— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 30, 2013 JW just said "Nothing cooler than seeing a packed house do the wave" #Nats— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 30, 2013 Video of the Day Overtime! Goal! It’s Stanley Cup playoffs time, folks.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Denver Nuggets fire Brian Shaw

In a less-than-surprising move, the Denver Nuggets have fired head coach Brian Shaw. The team is currently 20-39 on the season and simply hasn’t played inspired basketball this season. That came to a head recently when it was reported that players are breaking team huddles with a countdown to the end of the season. Definitely not a good sign. Including this season, Shaw was a...

Hamels trade talk motivating Red Sox pitching staff

  Cole Hamels this, Cole Hamels that. It’s impossible to bring up the Boston Red Sox in spring training without Hamels’ name coming up.   The Red Sox’s lack of a starting pitcher who is considered a true ace has been a major storyline in Fort Myers, Fla., where the Red Sox opened their exhibition schedule Tuesday. Rick Porcello, Clay Buchholz, Joe Kelly, Wade...

Ravens settle grievance, pay Ray Rice $1.6 million

After the Baltimore Ravens released running back Ray Rice this past season, the former second-round pick made it clear that he wasn’t happy about the actions of his former organization. Claiming that he was unfairly released following his domestic violence case, Rice filed a grievance against the Ravens, who gave the former Pro Bowler $1.688 million to settle. Some might be unhappy...

A-Rod goes 0-2 against Yankees pitching machine 'Iron Mike'

Alex Rodriguez went up against a pitching machine — not against a live-armed pitcher — during Monday’s “live game” action, but the results for the New York Yankees slugger still were underwhelming after he went 0-for-2 in a showdown against a pitching machine intimidatingly named “Iron Mike.” While his official debut on the field in...Read More The post Alex Rodriguez...

J.J. Redick was ejected during the final two minutes of the Los Angeles’ Clippers win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.

Ohio native Brian Hartline to visit Browns today

Josh Alper at PFT reported this morning that Canton native and former Buckeye Brian Hartline is visiting with the Browns today. The 2009 fourth round draft choice of Miami had a rough year for the Dolphins where he saw his role reduced in their offense and ended up with a mere 39 receptions for 474 yards and 2 touchdowns. However, that one rough year followed 2 fantastic seasons...
