The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers showed us last night just how good their Eastern Conference Finals series is going to be, but they were hardly the only Hump Day news buzzing in the world of sports.

Fried chicken-gate clucked on for another day, and we learned that Carmelo Anthony may have been playing with a torn labrum during the New York Knicks’ playoff elimination.

Brian Urlacher called it quits after 13 years on the gridiron, Jose Canseco recklessly tweeted about being accused of rape and the Pittsburgh Penguins moved one step closer to eliminating the Ottawa Senators.

As for the rest of the news? Here are a few other stories you may have missed:

— The University of Toledo may start selling alcohol at football and basketball games. Hopefully they are better at it than the University of Minnesota.

— Derek Jeter walks into NYC Starbucks, pretends not to be Derek Jeter.

— A Brazilian jiu-jitsu triangle choke hold proposal might not be the route I would have taken, but whatever works:

— A Florida high school basketball player has been arrested and expelled following an intimate encounter with a teammate. The girl's parents, and many others, say homophobia is to blame.

— Note to self: Don't eat the snow cones at Minute Maid Park.

— Basketball Hall of Famer Bill Sharman is raffling off an NBA championship ring for charity.

— An MMA fighter is seeking $50,000 in damages after he was allegedly injured, um, 'down there' by some intimate gel.

— Jeremy Affeldt, who returned $500,000 to the Giants after being mistakenly overpaid, says playing in San Francisco helped him overcome his homophobia.

— Plaxico Burress' sock design game is strong.

— Jakub Voracek's Ferrari has seen better days. Fortunately, the Philadelphia Flyers winger is just fine.

— Never let your baby get in the way of a foul ball souvenir:
