-(AA) Here’s video of Hawk announcing the “sacks packed with Seamen” Yes, you should be LOLing at that!

-Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, was an absolute media sensation this past NFL Draft weekend, as her television appearance the night of the first round stimulated internet users to search for her all weekend.

-(Mashable) The L.A. Kings are in the Stanley Cup Finals vs. the New Jersey Devils. Here’s how they’re redefining sports social media.

Among professional sports teams, the social media playbook is pretty cut and dried — be enthusiastic yet conservative, engage but don’t offend and it’s definitely better to err on the side of blandness.

The NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, however, are tearing that playbook to bits — and it’s working. The Kings’ Twitter account and social media team have an unabashedly biased voice, regularly poke fun at opposing teams’ fans and hometowns and pull comedic stunts other pro sports teams would likely deem too lively.

The Kings poke fun at sports media as well. After noticing a couple mistakes in stories about the team, Donahue decided to capitalize on the web’s current infographic obsession by producing this tongue-in-cheek graphic to set the record straight on key franchise details.
