* I have some thoughts for SI.com on Lance Armstrong's interview on Oprah Thursday night.  I was not a fan of Armstrong's showing, though I thought Oprah was outstanding in her substantive choice of questions and wording of them. The New York Times' Lynn Zinser has an excellent analysis of the media's coverage.

* An appellate court says a fan at a Royals game whose eye was seriously injured by a hot dog launched by the Royals mascot did not necessarily consent to that risk merely by going to the game. I wrote about this lawsuit - Coomer v. Kansas City Royals -- back in 2010 for TortsProf Blog.  You may consent to the risk of getting hit by a foul ball, but do you consent to the risk of getting hit by a flying hot dog?

* Dan Fitzgerald on a nice and unheralded gesture by Fairfield University and its basketball team.

* Darren Heitner and Benjamin Haynes discuss one man's legal attempt to hold the San Antonio Spurs responsible for not playing its best players.

* The Manti Te'o situation is bizarre.  I discuss its legal ramifications with CBS Houston.

* An independent investigation criticizes NBA Players Association executive director Billy Hunter.

* I'll be a guest on HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel Tuesday night to discuss Royce White's legal battle with the Houston Rockets.  The show will air at 10 p.m. Eastern.
