It's been tough. Fans are still reeling over the death of Junior Seau, beloved former NFL star.  Over the past few weeks, we have seen more crutches and carts during pro hoops playoffs than ever before. The NBA has many top players benched with injuries - could it have been avoided? But there were good stories, too. The Thunder players are growing up before our very eyes. Baseball is hot with new stars!
