Denver used their first two picks on First Last. We’re not kidding you. Well, according to the MLL Twitter account, we’re not.

The intern who was updating the Twitter account was probably fired after the second round.

The team also drafted Mike Nugent, who was the kicker for the Cincinnati Bengals until he was cut on Monday.

We’re kidding, again, but Nugent was the former goalie at Mercer.

Meanwhile, it appears Albany and Siena won’t be playing each other in 2017. They couldn’t find a mutual date, according to Mark Singelais of the Times Union.

"We were both willing to play," UAlbany coach Scott Marr said. "We just couldn't find the right date. ... It just didn't work. Hopefully, either (2018) or the following year, we'll pick it back up."

Siena coach John Svec, who worked under Marr at UAlbany, gave a similar account through an athletic department representative.

UAlbany holds a 12-2 advantage in the series in the Division I era. The Great Danes have won the past three meetings by a combined margin of 33 goals.

"I think it's important for the community and I think for the lacrosse fans here to have us play each other and whatnot," Marr said. "We were fortunate to be on the winning side the last couple of years, but they've gotten us a couple of times. It's unfortunate for our area we weren't able to find a common date, but that was the only reason. No other reason besides that. We both want to play each other."

1 billion Yahoo accounts may have had their data stolen.

Former WWE wrestler Shad Gaspard stops an armed robber in Florida. This is very ironic, because Gaspard was a part of the tag team “Cryme Tyme” in the WWE.
