We are in the middle of spring, flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer. Summer is right around the corner, but lets enjoy the cool nights while we can.

The month of May is traditionally known as the month for mothers. It was named for the Greek goddess Maia, the goddess of fertility, the goddess of May. Maybe this is why Mothers Day has been established during this very month.

But most importantly, May is National Hamburger Month sponsored by White Castle, the original fast-food hamburger chain (founded in 1921), to pay tribute to one of America’s favorite foods. Coincidentally, It’s National Barbecue Month.

But you are reading this because you are interested in May Sports, and do we got a lot to choose from!

It can certainly be argued that nothing in sports is better than playoff hockey, and the first round of the NHL’s Stanley Cup playoffs has certainly been indicative of that thus far. There’s something magical about the Stanley Cup Playoffs that no other sport can duplicate. As we head into May and the second round of the playoffs, it’s sure to get better. Click here for the Stanley Cup Playoff schedule going forward.

This year’s NBA Playoffs schedule is the same as usual, just like in 2014, the NBA Finals has switched to a 2-2-1-1-1 format this season, discarding the old 2-3-2 format that had been in use since 1985. We got you covered with the full NBA Playoffs Schedule, the bracket and links to great sites across the web to follow the action.

As we head into May, we are starting to get a feel for who the teams are to beat in the Majors. Team’s rotations have had a handful of starts and we are seeing who the good arms are.

Ohh and don’t forget about the MLB.tv Free Game of the Day. Click here for a daily listing of what games you can watch on the web for FREE.

The First Round of the NFL Draft is Thursday, April 30th, at 8PM ET, with the second and third rounds on Friday, May 1st, followed by Rounds 4-7 on Saturday, May 2nd. As usual, the announcements are televised by ESPN and the NFL Network, airing live in primetime. The only thing that is different is the location.

For the first time ever, the historic 80th annual meeting of the NFL, moves from its traditional home at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall to the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. Click here for the FANFOOD Top 10 Prospects, the 1st round Draft order and some great links for you preview the draft and track all the picks.

NASCAR holds its annual All-Star race in May and this year it being held again at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC. You might think that The SpongeBob SquarePants 400 is the biggest auto race of the month, and you would be wrong, The 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500, is and it all goes down, Sunday, May 24th. The Indianapolis 500 is the worlds most famous and prestigious auto race. It has taken place annually since 1911 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway except for 1917-18 and 1942-45 during America’s participation in world wars. “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” covers 500 miles, 200 laps on the famous 2.5-mile oval. “500” is the world’s largest single-day spectator sporting event. Whatever you preference, Open Wheel or Stock Car, we got you covered with links to all the races, schedules and more.

If you like racing then you love May. The 2015 Kentucky Derby is always the first Saturday in May and this year that falls on the 2nd. The run at Churchill Downs a one and a quarter mile track, and the race is known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” for its approximate duration, and is also called “The Run for the Roses” for the blanket of roses draped over the winner. It is the first leg of the US Triple Crown and is followed by the Preakness Stakes, then the Belmont Stakes. Unlike the Preakness and Belmont Stakes, which took hiatuses in 1891-1893 and 1911-1912 respectively, the Kentucky Derby has been run every consecutive year since 1875. Click here for a ton of links for first two jewels of the crowns full lineups post positions and more.

2015 marks the 114th edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of the year. It will take place at the Stade Roland Garros from May 24th to June 7th. Click here for all the details from the Clay tournament. Of course that is not the only Professional Tennis Tournament in May, for the full schedule click here for links to all the ATP and WTA tennis tournaments this month.

A major highlight of the PGA Tour, the Players Championship is the richest tournament of the year with the strongest and deepest field -— featuring 50 of the world’s top golfers competing for the $1 million-plus prize at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Golf fans know the course best for its infamous 137-yard 17th hole – better known as the “Island Green” – which historically raises the blood pressure of even the coolest players. Below is the complete TV coverage airing on NBC and The Golf Channel – beginning Thursday, May 7th including a dramatic Mother’s Day Sunday final on May 10th. Click here for memorable moments, links and more from TPC. Like Tennis, this is not the only tournament for the professionals in May, click here for the complete schedule and links to all the events.

Outside of sports, May is full of reasons to gather with friends, family and neighbors. In addition to all these great sports matchups, May is home to Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Star Wars Day, (May the 4th be with you) and of course, the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day.

Stanley Cup Playoffs

 

It can certainly be argued that nothing in sports is better than playoff hockey, and the first round of the NHL’s Stanley Cup playoffs has certainly been indicative of that thus far. There’s something magical about the Stanley Cup Playoffs that no other sport can duplicate. The first round has been everything fans could have asked for. Regardless of what the outcome to these games and series ends up being, no one can say that they have been disappointed.

NBA Playoffs

 

This year’s NBA Playoffs schedule is the same as usual, with a couple of major exceptions. Just like last year, the 2015 NBA Finals will switch to a 2-2-1-1-1 format this season, discarding the old 2-3-2 format that had been in use since 1985.

First-round action in the NBA playoffs continued this weekend, with all 16 teams involved providing several eye-catching moments, including full-court shots and picture-perfect passes.

On top of the individual moments, the Golden State Warriors, Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers all rolled to fourth straight wins to finalize their series sweeps.

While some teams began their offseasons, other teams like the Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks fought to see another game in the postseason.

But the Highlight of the First Round was a shot that didn’t even count:

Major League Baseball

 

As we head into May, we are starting to get a feel for who the teams are to beat in the Majors. Teams rotations have had a handful of starts and we are seeing who the good arms are. It’s crowded at the top, as one could make the case for 3 or 4 teams to be #1. But just like Highlander says, “there can be only one” so we pick the team from Kansas City. Anything happen this week with the Royals. They lost some momentum on Sunday, dropping two games, but their plus-30 run differential remains best in the majors. Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Eric Hosmer, Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon all have .370 OBPs or higher. Next up we have the team from St. Louis. The pitching staff — with an MLB-best 1.99 ERA and second-best 2.87 FIP — is propelling the Cardinals team to a fast start. The only thing that threatens to derail them is health. Rounding out the TOP 3, and despite dropping two of three to the Yankees, the other team from New York, the Mets began this week with the best record in the majors. Bartolo Colon and Matt Harvey are the first NL pitching duo since 2008 to both start the season 4-0 and the first duo in Mets history to do so, and Harvey is only the second pitcher in team history to begin two seasons 4-0.

 

Here is the FANFOOD Top 10 as the calendar flips.

 

  1. Royals
  2. Cardinals
  3. Mets
  4. Dodgers
  5. Detroit
  6. Yankees
  7. Rays
  8. Red Sox
  9. Rockies
  10. Padres

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS 400

SATURDAY, MAY 09 / 07:30 PM ET
KANSAS SPEEDWAY
Fox1

 

Nickelodeon has joined forced with Kansas Speedway for a unique entitlement sponsorship for its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race May 9, now called the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.

The deal with the children’s TV network and the long-running animated series, which began in 1999, expands NASCAR’s reach to a younger demographic. Plans are already afoot for costumed character appearances and a SpongeBob SquarePants photo station in the Kansas Speedway Fan Zone.

“The SpongeBob SquarePants 400 gives Nickelodeon the opportunity to expand its relationship with NASCAR, while working with a best-in-class track to give fans a unique, engaging and high-quality race experience that the whole family can enjoy,” said Pam Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer and President of Consumer Products for Nickelodeon Group. “Nickelodeon has embarked on some great initiatives with NASCAR over the last 10 years, sponsoring and participating in marquee racing events that have resonated with motorsports fans across the country.”

Nickelodeon already has a tradition of partnership with NASCAR, dating back to 2004′s sponsorship of the Lowe’s Presents the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in what is now known as the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch participated in SpongeBob SquarePants-themed cars, finishing third and fifth respectively behind race winner Mike Bliss. The network also brought the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Atlanta Motor Speedway last September.

2015 Indianapolis 500

 

- Sunday May 24th -

 

99th Running of the Indianapolis 500 is Sunday, May 24, 2014 

The Indianapolis 500 is the world’s most famous and prestigious auto race. It has taken place annually since 1911 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway except for 1917-18 and 1942-45 during America’s participation in world wars. “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” covers 500 miles, 200 laps on the famous 2.5-mile oval. It currently is the marquee race on the schedule for the Verizon IndyCar Series, the premiere open-wheel racing series in North America. The “500” is the world’s largest single-day spectator sporting event.

The 99th Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday May 24, 2015, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It will be the premier event of the 2015 season of the Verizon IndyCar Series. Ryan Hunter-Reay will enter the race as the defending champion. Ed Carpenter, who won back-to-back poles in 2013–2014, will attempt to become the first driver in Indy history to win three consecutive pole positions. Three-time Indy winner Hélio Castroneves will once again attempt to win a record-tying fourth 500.

For the second year in a row, the month of May activities will open with the Grand Prix of Indianapolis over May 7–9. Practice for the Indianapolis 500 will open on May 11, and time trials are scheduled for May 16–17.

The 2015 race will see the debut of unique aero kits from Chevrolet and Honda, respectively, outfitted for the Dallara DW12 chassis. As part of the ICONIC project, aero kits were originally planned for 2012, but a series of delays due to cost issues put off their homologation and implementation until 2015.

Full TV coverage of the 99th running of the Indy 500 airs on ABC Sports with a traditional 12 PM ET starting time — as top drivers line up to vie for one of racing’s highest honors… victory at the Indianapolis 500.

This year the Indy 500 takes place on Sunday, May 24, 2015 as the green flag goes down at noon during a festive Memorial Day weekend.

In keeping with the summer party atmosphere, the race is traditionally preceded by the Indy 500 Festival, a month-long celebration in Indianapolis leading up to the race.

2015 French Open

 

May 24th – June 7th

 

2015 marks the 114th edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of the year. It will take place at the Stade Roland Garros from May 24th to June 7th.

Less-than-optimum traction on the red clay surface (that also gives the ball its extra bounce) can be a special challenge for top professionals at Roland Garros stadium in Paris – the traditional home of the French Open.

The early round broadcasts will be split up between ESPN2 and Tennis Channel. Once the quarterfinals begin NBC will provide some coverage until it takes over men’s and women’s finals. Roland-Garros – the French Open – can boast exceptional international coverage. In 2012, no fewer than 154 channels in 175 countries broadcast 13 401 hours of dedicated coverage, 15% more than in 2011.

For the two most important matches of the tournament, in the US tune into NBC in the US for the women’s final on Saturday, June 6 starting at 9AM ET. For the men’s final on Sunday, June 7, NBC has it covered again beginning at 9AM ET.

Of the 104 players given direct acceptance into the final draw of the men’s singles, there are the top 99 in the ATP rankings as of 13 April 2015, followed by five players with a protected ranking (Juan Martin Del Potro, Tommy Haas, Florian Mayer, Radek Stepanek and Janko Tipsarevic).

Eight French players were given direct acceptance into the final draw of the men’s singles: Gilles Simon (No.13), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (No.14), Gaël Monfils (No.18), Richard Gasquet (No.27), Adrian Mannarino (No.30), Jérémy Chardy (No.35), Julien Benneteau (No.39) and Benoît Paire (No.90).

The men’s singles draw will feature 128 players, including 16 qualifiers and eight wild-cards who will be named at a later date.

In the women’s draw, two players have a protected ranking – Bethanie Mattek Sands (USA) and Laura Robson (GB) – and they have joined the top 106 who were given direct acceptance.

This means that all of the top women’s players will be battling it out in the hope of winning the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen and following in the footsteps of Maria Sharapova as women’s singles champion.

Four French players were given direct acceptance into the final draw of the women’s singles: Alizé Cornet (No.28), Caroline Garcia (No.29), Kristina Mladenovic (No.58) and Pauline Parmentier (No.89). 

The women’s singles draw will also feature 128 players, including 12 qualifiers and eight wild-cards who will be named at a later date.

- Saturday, May 2nd -

 

The 2015 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 2nd at Churchill Downs. The Kentucky Derby is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds, held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival. The race is one and a quarter miles. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kilograms) and fillies 121 pounds (55 kilograms). The race is known in the United States as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports” or “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” for its approximate duration, and is also called “The Run for the Roses” for the blanket of roses draped over the winner.

It is the first leg of the US Triple Crown and is followed by the Preakness Stakes, then the Belmont Stakes. Unlike the Preakness and Belmont Stakes, which took hiatuses in 1891-1893 and 1911-1912 respectively, the Kentucky Derby has been run every consecutive year since 1875.

A horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown. The attendance at the Kentucky Derby ranks first in North America and usually surpasses the attendance of all other stakes races including the Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup.

It’s the annual springtime ritual focusing on the biggest event in American racing. The Run for the Roses offers the largest purse – $2,000,000 – bringing out all of the best 3 year-olds up to the challenge. Days before the race, horse racing fans check out the lineup to find out how they’ve run in the Stakes races of the season, along with graded earnings and how the handicappers put it all together to come up with the odds on the leading contenders. Heart-pounding anticipation follows. Who will scratch at the last minute? Who will have the heart to lead the field at the finish?

 

2015 Derby TV coverage & post time

The horses will race down the track and into history at the landmark 140th edition of the Run for the Roses airing live on NBC on Saturday, May 2nd beginning at 5PM with race post time approx. 6:25PM ET.

 

2014 Kentucky Derby Recap

The odds on 2014 Kentucky Derby contenders were getting hotter as the post position announcement got closer! With the race only days away, major buzz surrounded a current crop of 3-year-olds who had all the makings for Kentucky Derby glory — including No 1 ranked California Chrome at 5-2 odds.

Other major contenders this year? They included Wood Memorial winner Wicked Strong, Louisiana Derby winner Vicar’s in Trouble, and the aptly-named Dance with Fate.

More odds-on favorites in 2014 included Danza, Samraat and We Miss Artie. Two holidays were also represented: Intense Holiday and Harry’s Holiday who were also up for Kentucky Derby glory.

2015 DERBY CONTENDERS

It was ideal weather in Louisville on Saturday with not a mud puddle in sight as the 2014 Kentucky Derby contenders raced off into the record books.

Dominating the odds was favorite California Chrome, which entered the day at 5-2 and emerged 2-1 before race time.

And, this time around, the favorite didn’t disappoint — as California Chrome pulled away into an impressive victory and easily won. Coming in second to PLACE was Commanding Curve, in third to SHOW was Danza and in fourth place was Wicked Strong.

Preakness Stakes

 

- Saturday, May 16th -

 

The Preakness Stakes is an American flat Thoroughbred horse race held on the third Saturday in May each year at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a Grade I race run over a distance of 9.5 furlongs on dirt. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kg); fillies 121 lb (55 kg). It is the second leg of the US Triple Crown, with the Kentucky Derby preceding it and the Belmont Stakes following it. The horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown.

The Preakness Stakes has been termed “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” because a blanket of Viking daisies, decorated to look like Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta, the state flower of Maryland) is traditionally placed around the winner’s neck. (Actual Black-eyed Susans are not in season during the Preakness.)

What may be the most disturbing Preakness infield tradition of all: the annual port-o-potty run, in which drunk people run across the tops of port-o-potties while being pelted by beer cans.

Only in Ballmer!

 

 

This year marks the 140th running of the $1 million Preakness Stakes, the middle jewel of the Triple Crown. By tradition, three year olds run the one and 3/16th mile track at Pimlico in Baltimore, Maryland with more than a dozen horses traditionally lined up for the Preakness Stakes. For major contenders in Baltimore, horse racing fans looked to the previous Kentucky Derby lineup which often result in a handful of Preakness favorites. Of course, that doesn’t discount the odds of some unknown dark horse sneaking up from behind for the win… and a major upset! Meanwhile, for word on this year’s lineup of 2015 Preakness odds and post positions use the links below for when the official list is announced from Baltimore.

Finally, on race day, it will be “riders up!” when all the televised action takes place at Pimlico on NBC at 4:30 PM ET on Saturday, May 16th with post time approx, 6:20 PM ET.

 

Preakness 2014 Recap:

2014 Preakness contenders included Derby winner California Chrome, along with a few fresh faces — such as Social Inclusion (little experience on the track, but talented) and Kid Cruz (a New York racing favorite) — joining the pack.

Kentucky Derby also-rans included Ride On Curlin, Pablo Del Monte, and General A Rod returning in the Preakness to give California Chrome a run for the money at Pimlico.

On race day, heavy rain played a part as a muddy, soaked track threatened to play havoc at the 2014 Preakness Stakes. Despite all the pundits’ dramatic predictions of his downfall, it was Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome who won. This set in motion a possible Triple Crown winner this year, the first since Affirmed took the title in 1978 (which, alas, was not to be as the 2014 favorite trailed behind in fifth place at Belmont.)

Coming in second at the Preakness was Ride on Curlin. The second favorite in the race, Social Inclusion, came in third.

 

 

 

 

Preakness Stakes fun facts:

 

  • The black eyed susan is Maryland’s state flower
  • The Preakness is named after the horse who won the first stakes ever run in Pimlico when its doors first opened on May 27, 1873.
  • The Preakness Stakes is sometimes dubbed “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” because a blanket of Viking daisies, decorated to look like Black-eyed Susans, is traditionally placed around the winner’s neck. Actual Black-eyed Susans — the state flower of Maryland — are not in season during the Preakness.
  • The official drink of the Preakness Stakes is the Black Eyed Susan cocktail made with orange juice and vodka.
  • The Friday before the Preakness is Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico where a party atmosphere and entertainment prevails along with the running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes for 3-year-old fillies, with appearances by notable female jockeys.
  • While celebrations in Baltimore may take days, the actual Preakness Stakes race lasts an average 2 1/2 minutes.

PGA Tour

 

The PGA Tour is the organizer of the main professional golf tours played primarily by men in the United States and North America. It organizes most of the events on the flagship annual series of tournaments also known as the PGA Tour, as well as the Champions Tour (for golfers age 50 and older) and the Web.com Tour (for professional players who have not yet qualified to play in the PGA Tour), as well as the PGA Tour Canada and PGA Tour Latinoamérica.

Originally established by the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, it was spun off in December 1968 into a separate organization for tour players, as opposed to club professionals, the focal members of today’s PGA of America. Originally the “Tournament Players Division,” it adopted the name “PGA Tour” in 1975 and runs most of the week-to-week professional golf events on the tournament known as the PGA Tour, including The Players Championship, hosted at the TPC at Sawgrass, the FedEx Cup, and the biennial Presidents Cup. The remaining events on the PGA Tour are run by different organizations, as are the U.S.-based LPGA Tour for women and the other men’s and women’s professional tours around the world.

In Mexico or wherever the culture is celebrated — families, friends and neighbors gather on the 5th of May to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! It’s popular to believe that Cinco de Mayo is an observance of Mexican independance, but the festival actually celebrates an obscure victory of 4,000 ill-equipped Mexicans over 8,000 armed French invaders in 1862. The battle known as La Batalla de Puebla, The Battle of Puebla, took place on (you guessed it) May 5. Today, all is forgiven, with fiestas planned in Mexico and in many communities around the world where Mexicans live.

 

Mostly, It’s used by restaurants to sell more fajitas and by party stores to sell more Sombreros.  It’s a good time to try out your latin skills on the grill. Here are some recipes for you to use:

Star Wars Day

 

- Monday May 4th -

 

May 4th  is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate Star Wars culture and honor the films. It is called Star Wars Day because of the popularity of a common pun spoken on this day. Since the phrase “May the Force be with you” is a famous quote often spoken in the Star Wars films, fans commonly say “May the fourth be with you” on this day. Current day Star Wars fans were not the first to introduce the line “May the fourth be with you”.

In a 2005 interview on German news TV channel N24, Star Wars creator George Lucas was asked to say the famous sentence “May the Force be with you.” The interpreter simultaneously interpreted the sentence into German as Am 4. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen (“We shall be with you on May 4″).
