Thursday's Supreme Court decision upholding most of President Barack Obama's health care law coupled with the lead-up to the night's NBA draft made for a wonderful day of social-media grazing. I spent the morning scrolling through tweets that expressed shock about the decision, batted around trade rumors, knocked news organizations for rushed and erroneous reports that the High Court had struck down the Affordable Care Act, and guessed at which teams would draft which player.
One of the striking things about seeing these topics fill up Twitter was that, by and large, they seemed to pass each other in the night (or morning or midday, depending on your time zone). Many politicos are sports fans, and the sports world is becoming increasingly politically aware, but often the sports and hard-news spheres stay separate.
These types of intersections are rare, and can make for memorable media consumption. So as Mitt Romney takes aim at Obamacare on the campaign trail, and Anthony Davis begins house shopping in New Orleans, let's revisit a few other days when news and sports competed for the front page.
