Did the Buffalo Bills trade too much for the right to draft wide receiver Sammy Watkins?

If this ridiculous Vine is any indication (note: NFL executives should not base decisions on six-second videos), the answer is no:

Growing up, Patrick Kane played on local rinks throughout his native Buffalo, New York.

Recently, the two-time Stanley Cup champion and 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy-winning Chicago Blackhawks forward returned to his hometown to do that once again.



The results, naturally, were devastating. For his opponents, anyway. Five goals. Five assists. A 13-5 win.

Let's not overlook the man on the receiving end of Kane's five assists: Vinny Scarsella, a 24-year-old most recently of the ECHL's Utah Grizzlies, who scored seven goals and added two assists.

Nor should we ignore the fact that this is Kane's second game with Piranhas -- and he only tallied one goal and two assists in the first (a 12-1 win).

WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT GAME, KANE?

Dabo Swinney and Steve Spurrier have taken the Clemson-South Carolina to a new level: that of cosmological debates regarding the planetary status of Pluto.

Swinney started it all. Asked to compare Spurrier to himself, he chose planets as his metaphor:

Spurrier came right back at him, calling Swinney out for a perceived lack of knowledge on the most recent trends in astronomical classification:

The science is on Spurrier's side. Pluto hasn't been a planet since 2006 because it's not large enough to have "cleared the neighborhood" of its orbit. It's so small, in fact, that there are seven moons (including our own) that are bigger than it. Pluto's orbit is also kind of weird, it's really far away from the sun, and we didn't even know it was there until about 1930 or so.

On the other hand, we all grew up with Pluto as a planet, and who is Steve Spurrier to crush our -- and Swinney's -- childhoods like that? All we know is that when we send our first spacecraft there (the New Horizons probe, set to arrive around July 2015), Pluto is going to be super upset with us.
