Floyd Mayweather Pulling a Tim Donaghy, Shows Off Five-Figure Gambling Slips on NBA Halftime Bets Floyd Mayweather is sick of people putting his name in headlines for such negative things as domestic violence and robbery, so the boxer ironically known as “Money” decided to offer the world some good news for a change.

Well, it’s good news if you think a millionaire getting more money is good thing.

On Wednesday, Mayweather tweeted a winning betting slip from a $41,000 bet he placed at halftime during the Bulls-Hawks game on Tuesday. As seen in his Twitter photos below, this wasn’t the first NBA bet he’s made and it likely won’t be the last.

Quote of the day

“He?s OK and he?s getting better. I mean we know he was at a movie, I mean he was twittering at a movie five days later … and you know obviously if you have a bad concussion like this, you?re not going to be at a movie. So we?re glad in that sense that he?s getting better, but it was a hockey play and the injury happened.”
Mark Recchi, telling 98.5 The Sports Hub of the reports he?s heard on Max Pacioretty?s condition.

Comment of the day

It’s rare that we allow commenters to place links in the comments section, but you have to respect a Bruins fan who clearly knows how to rock. 

“Not sure how many of you are Journey fans, but this song is perfect for the Bruins playoff run! If only they could perform it live at the Garden with the Bruins on the bench. The guitar solo kicks in at around 2:42. It has so much power and emotion behind it. From the Revelation album, Journey presents: ‘What It Takes to Win.'”
