Miami Heat reserve forward Chris Andersen, a.k.a. the Birdman, threw down a sick put-back dunk last night in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

TNT play-by-play man Kevin Harlan was excited to say the least.

Following a Shane Battier miss, Andersen swooped in for the dunk, after which Harlan exclaimed "Ohh! Here comes the Birdman! Flapping his wings!"

"Soaring in for a sweet flush! When you're aerodynamically designed with that hairdo, you can do those kinds of things, with that sweet mohawk. It helps him fly!"

Millions of fans tuned in to the Los Angeles Lakers' 91-79 defeat yesterday in the opening game of their Western Conference Playoff series against the San Antonio Spurs.

But one fan in particular stood out for his Tweeted opinions on the team's offense flow... or lackthereof.

Kobe Shoots

Kobe Bryant, out for the year with a torn Achilles, sent multiple cyber messages throughout the contest, making it clear he believed Pau Gasol should "post, post, post," while also lamenting the team's "matador defense" against Tony Parker.

It doesn't get much cooler than this.

A couple hours after the awesome David Ortiz F-Bomb that kicked off the first Red Sox home game played since the Boston Marathon bombing, Neil Diamond shocked fans by showing up during the eighth inning and singing "Sweet Caroline" on the field.

Watch the singer - who reportedly took it upon himself to drop by and simply phoned the front office that morning for permission - lead the crown in this classic tune now:

Earlier in the week, to honor victims of the bombing, Yankee Stadium attendees belted out their own version of "Sweet Caroline."

Yes, even New Yorkers were Boston fans for one night at least.

"This is our f--king city."

With those five words, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz encapsulated an entire city's attitude Saturday, one day after the Boston bombing suspect was captured.

Before the team's Saturday game, before which the governor, mayor and law enforcement officials were honored, Ortiz took the mic to address the crowd:

"This is our f--king city, and nobody's going to dictate our freedom," Ortiz said after thanking authorities, then helped lead Boston to a 4-3 victory over K.C.

In recent years, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recoiled at such language displays, issuing huge fines to networks that air them.

On Saturday, no one bleeped out Ortiz, and the FCC Tweeted that was A-OK.

Good for them. Some things kind of warrant an f-bomb, don't you think?

San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver is in hot water again, this time over a whole new set of offensive comments directed at women, not gays.

It's not quite in that league, but he posted a screen grab of an iPhone conversation to Instagram last night (for reasons unknown) that has drawn criticism.

Here's how the conversation went down ...

Culliver's friend states: "This bitch talkin bout how I can take her on a nice dat ... yeah my car ... bitch you got a whole dude ... live in work you trippin."

You have to watch the anchors of Good Day Philly break down in tears - laughing - three seconds after completing an interview with Olympian Ryan Lochte.

Ryan came on the show to promote his new reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? Apparently Ryan doesn't do TV interviews, that's for sure.

Check out the end of this one - and the anchors' reactions:

You know it's bad when you zone out live on camera, as if your mind is somewhere else (or just absent) ... and then when you do talk, it may be worse.

But hey, the man can swim a 400-meter individual medley, and "if you're the man at night, you gotta be a man in the morning" is a mantra to live by.

Whatever that means.

Two days after the Boston Marathon bombing that left three people dead and over 170 injured, one of the city's professional sports teams played its first home game.

And its fans rallied behind their squad and their country.

Holding signs that read "Boston Strong," those in attendance at the TD Garden belted out a stirring rendition of the national anthem. Watch them do so now:

Earlier in the week, in another show of supports, Yankee fans sang Sweet Caroline, a Neil Diamond track that is played at every Red Sox home game in the eighth inning.

If that is not a sign of unity, what possibly could be?
