Five Spot / Quick hitters on light side

1. MAKE ROOM, REGGIE

White Sox slugger Adam Dunn (above) tied a major-league record by hitting his eighth opening-day home run this season. Or as he's now known around AL batting cages, Mr. April.

2. STEP BY STEP

Actor/rapper Mark Wahlberg is among the organizers trying to establish a pro football league in cricket-crazed India. Hey, don't laugh. It's not his first time being a new kid on the block.

3. BUNNIES, BEWARE

"When Gregg Williams eats a chocolate Easter bunny," tweeted CBS writer Eric Stangel of the shamed ex-Saints defensive coordinator, "he goes for the head first, then the outside ACL."

4. COOP D'ETAT

The NBA is considering allowing corporate logos on team uniforms to generate more revenue. So, Denver fans, like the thought of rooting for the Tyson's Chicken Nuggets?

5. CHEERS!

At Fark.com: "If you were born the last time the Red Wings missed the playoffs, you are now old enough to drink."
