• Some NFL experts scoffed when Cleveland selected Johnny Manziel with the No. 22 pick in the NFL draft, but is anyone surprised that the Browns sold 2,300 season tickets in less than 24 hours?

• Manziel already is making a splash in Cleveland, but are fans there happy that LeBron James was wearing a Browns jersey with Manziel’s name on it?

• When the Raiders picked Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr in the second round Friday, did you also wonder what they will do with Matt Schaub?

• The 49ers entered the draft with 11 picks, so why didn’t they make a move to land a big-time receiver like Clemson’s Sammy Watkins or Texas A&M’s Mike Evans?

• With Mother’s Day on Sunday, did also you cry earlier this week when basketball superstar Kevin Durant made an emotional display of admiration for his mom after winning the MVP award?

• With the Heat and Spurs both up 2-0 in their playoff series, is it inevitable that we’ll see a repeat of last year’s NBA Finals?

• Speaking of the Heat, is backup guard Ray Allen, averaging 16 points in 27 minutes in two games against the Nets, really 38 years old?

• With all the NBA attention focused on the playoffs and Clippers owner Donald Sterling, have Kings fans forgotten that the lottery is just 10 days away?

• After Republic FC drew 20,231 and 17,414 fans to its first two USL Pro matches at Hughes Stadium, will the 8,000-seat facility being built at Cal Expo be big enough to contain the region’s enthusiasm for soccer?

• The Giants and A’s were both in first place entering Friday’s games, so is it too early to start getting ready for a Bay Bridge World Series?
