Bucks swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts and Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall were not pleased with the celebrations that broke out all over America after the announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
Douglas-Roberts said it made Americans look like the Taliban after 9/11. "We just looked like the Afghan people, a decade later," he said. "That's not what we should be doing, celebrating with beers and all that. I didn't agree with that. That's just me."
Mendenhall, who suggested a conspiracy on 9/11, took it a step further. "What kind of person celebrates death?" he tweeted. "It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side."

According to a source familiar with the situation, the surgically-repaired right foot of quarterback Tom Brady is expected to be fully healed for the coming NFL season.
Brady underwent surgery on his right foot on Jan. 20 to relieve a stress fracture, and a source close to the situation says that a recent exam showed that the non-displaced fracture of his navicular bone is bridging, an indication that the necessary healing is occurring to permit a complete and healthy return to the field.
The first inclination Brady had a foot problem this past season came when his name first popped up on the injury report with a right foot injury on Nov. 10, the Wednesday before the Patriots faced the Steelers in Pittsburgh. From that point on, he missed several Wednesday practices over the course of the season, but he did not miss a single game over the course of the 16-game season.
Despite the foot problem, Brady had one of the...
PHILADELPHIA -- After his team fell into an 0-2 hole with a 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins Monday night, Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette attempted to play a psychological card on the Bruins. Simply put, Laviolette said all the pressure is on Boston to advance now that that have a stranglehold on the series for the second straight year.
“We have to go into Boston and win one hockey game," Laviolette said. "Going to the well is not an easy thing to do. It’s a difficult thing to do and we did it last series and we did it last year against Boston. When you lose your first two games in your home building, I would say there’s a real expectation for the Bruins to win the series now. So it relieves us of the pressure, I believe, a little bit to just go in and play a game in Boston. And while it relieves us of the pressure, it certainly mounts onto them to be successful now that they have a 2-0 lead."
PHILADELPHIA -- After being taken to a Philadelphia hospital after falling head-first into the boards late in the first period, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will travel back to Boston with the team.
McQuaid was shaken after tripping over the leg of Mike Richards and falling into the boards. He was tended to on the ice by Bruins medical staff before being helped off by teammates Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara and taken to a Philadelphia hospital.
"Adam is coming back home with us. He's on his way back. He was sent to the hosital for further evaluation. I don't know the [complete] details but he's coming back with us and that's a good sign in itself. Our D did a great job of stepping up."
The Bruins were forced to play with five defenseman for the rest of the game, including overtime. Dennis Seidenberg played 36 minutes while Chara played 31 minutes and had to leave briefly after a long shift in overtime before...
PHILADELPHIA -- David Krejci scored on a slap shot from the low slot with exactly six minutes left in overtime as the Bruins beat the Flyers, 3-2, in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Monday night at Wells Fargo Center. The goal light didn't come on initially but replay confirmed the goal. The Bruins now lead the best-of-7 series, 2-0, with Games 3 and 4 set for Wednesday and Friday at TD Garden.
Before the game, the sellout crowd was treated to a stirring rendition of "God Bless America" by Lauren Hart, with a tribute to American servicemen and women. It didn't take long for the Flyers to capitalize on the energy from the crowd as James van Riemsdyk took a perfect feed from Claude Giroux and beat Tim Thomas on a 2-on-1 rush just 29 seconds into the game. Van Riemsdyk put the Flyers up, 2-0, when he knocked a rebound past Thomas on the power play midway through the first.
But the Bruins weathered the storm and...
