Indiana Grand Racing (formerly Indiana Downs) announces stakes schedule. $500,000 Indiana Derby set for Oct. 4.
Lance: “I feel the heat, I feel energized & I feel like my teammates are changing their attitude to the games. Definitely in serious mode."
Frank Vogel on the rotation: "It’ll vary night by night & we’ll see how the flow of the game is going.” S. Hill and Bynum are the inactives
GHill: "Last couple days of practice have been some great practices. Guys have worked really hard. This is when the real season begins."
Pacers lone draft pick this June will be in the second round, No. 57. Their first-round selection belongs to PHX from the Scola trade.
Middle-aged people will never stop believing everything was better in "their day." Not before their day, though. Just in their day.
Two days into the Stanley Cup playoffs and I'm already exhausted. Terrific stuff last night.
I've spoken to several Battalion members and they were great. But I could use perhaps a more casual fan. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Watching playoff hockey is excruciating. That is all.
New ESPN 30 for 30 at 8pm, new episode of Scandal at 10pm, tonight's gonna be a good night
Sorry to miss Indiana Golden Gloves finals tonight. One of my favorite sports events in our town. Too many other responsibilities today.
To prepare for Atlanta’s shooting bigs, Roy Hibbert has practiced against Copeland and Butler at the 4 and 5. Says it’s a different feel.
More PG: "We’re the No. 1 seed but we still feel like we’re underdogs in this. And that’s just how we carry ourselves."
PG says the team is tighter than ever. “We’ve been through almost everything in one season and now it’s the point where it’s a fresh start."
Paul George remains in frequent contact with former Pacers asst., now Nuggets coach Brian Shaw and plans to speak with him before Game 1.
Speaking as a Mizzou grad: I hope they make a run at Nebraska's Tim Miles. Be tough to pry him away, but he's a terrific coach.
Paul George on Atlanta’s big win here on Apr. 6: “I know it’s on my mind. I remember what they did to us and that can’t be accepted.”
Roy Hibbert, clearly agitated by ‘How are you’ ?s: “I’ve been doing this for like six years now, I’m ready to go. It’s playoff time.”
Frank Vogel: “No update on Andrew Bynum. Still a chance (he plays in the playoffs).”
Andrew Bynum ruled out for Round 1 http://t.co/BWJe70TLqt
Andrew Bynum at practice today. But not participating. http://t.co/8Ncq9wI6Hc
Stat jumped out at me while doing some research: Atlanta Hawks have not advanced past second of playoffs since 1967. when in St. Louis. Wow.
Today already has the feel of needing three battery lives. Thank goodness for external batteries and car chargers.

"I really need 2 get my feet wet & get a little rhythm. I got n2 a little rhythm out there & it felt pretty good." - G. Hill 2/5 for 5 pts
