R.I.P Adrian Robinson
We start off in the NFL, where we have some rather sad news to report. Adrian Robinson, a former linebacker for the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers, has sadly passed away at the tender age of 25.
Robinson had just signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a free agent on April 27 after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014. Robinson appeared in 12 games for the Steelers in 2012, played six times for the Broncos the following year and twice for the San Diego Chargers.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin tweeted out his condolences to Robinson's family following the breaking of the news.
Robinson was a standout player at Temple University during his college career. Robinson recorded 156 tackles and 22.5 sacks in 50 games for The Owls. During his sophomore season, Robinson was named the Mid-American Conference defensive player of the year following a season with 14 tackles for losses and 12 sacks, in 2009.
To the NBA now, where the Houston Rockets won a tough game 7 against the Clippers last night. James Harden top scored with 31 for Houston, who advance to the Western Conference Finals where they will face the top seeded Golden State Warriors.
Over to the NHL, where there was more playoff action. The Anaheim Ducks took a 1-0 series lead against the Blackhawks last night after a 4-1 win. Nate Thompson and Kyle Palmieri were amongst the goals for the Ducks, while goalie Frederik Anderson made 32 saves to keep Chicago out.
And finally to the MLS, where Orlando City got their first home win of the season in fantastic style. The Lions romped to a 4-0 win against the defending champions LA Galaxy, thanks to an excellent game from Kaka. The Brazilian scored one and assisted Cyle Larin, with Eric Avila and Darwin Ceren netting the other two.
