Your local cable companies want Saturday Night News and Views. Apparently, so many people want to watch the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight tonight that it has KO’d many cable companies pay-per-view services. HBO released a statement that the overwhelming number of PPV orders for the fight is projected to break revenue records. While cable companies are scrambling to fix the PPV mess, take a break and recap some of the highlights of today’s sports-filled goodness. Coach Cal is in Las Vegas and took a moment to snap a quick pic outside MGM Grand Arena. Meanwhile Coach Mark Stoops is hanging out with former boxer Mike Tyson in preparation for tonight's fight.  Watch those ears, Coach! American Pharoah won the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby. This makes jockey Victor Espinoza’s second straight Derby win, after last year’s success on California Chrome. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert has to be feeling great. While American Pharoah won the Run for the Roses, his other horse Dortmund finish in third place. This makes Baffert’s fourth Derby win in front of a record crowd of 170,513 fans at Churchill Downs.
