Fit Fix: Blake Griffin Breaks His Hand While Punching Team Equipment Manager, Apologizes for "Escalated Situation"

Today in unnecessary demands placed on orthopedists, and everything else you need to know.

Ya Done Messed Up: Clippers superstar forward Blake Griffin broke a bone in his hand after repeatedly punching a team equipment staffer during an argument at  a restaurant in Toronto, the team confirmed. Griffin got into an argument with Matias Testi, who then walked out of the restaurant, where Griffin followed him and hit him, ESPN's Michael Eaves reported, citing team sources. The worst part? "They were good friends and that makes it tougher for everybody," Clippers head coach Doc Rivers told reporters at his press conference before their game against the pacers Tuesday night. "It shouldn’t happen." Griffin apologized in a statement on Twitter. [ESPN]

All's Fair in Love and Social Media: Facebook is set to add on to the simple "Like" by rolling out its new set of "Facebook Reactions," which expand the palette of human emotions to include "Love," "Haha," "Yay," "Wow," "Sad," and "Angry." Since this is the Internet, we're betting people will lean heavily on that last one. [Mashable]

His Last Rodeo: After defeating the New England Patriots in this weekend's AFC Championship Game, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning whispered to Pats coach Bill Belichick: "Hey listen, this might be my last rodeo. So, it sure has been a pleasure." [VIDEO via NFL]

Or Is It?: Meanwhile, the NFL has already started a comprehensive review of allegations, first made public in an Al Jazeera America report, that Manning indirectly ordered HGH to his house, league spokesman Brian McCarthy told the Associated Press.

The Calorie Is a Lie: We know that different macronutrients—like protein, carbs, and fats—each have different caloric values. But researchers are starting to realize what everyday Americans may have already suspected: Not all calories are created equal, and some foods seem to result in more weight gain even though they're calorically equivalent. "A calorie isn’t just a calorie," write Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley. "And our mistaken faith in the power of this seemingly simple measurement may be hindering the fight against obesity."

But Does It Come With a Flux Capacitor?: The legendary DeLorean, made famous (of course) from its starring role in Back to the Future, will once again start rolling off the production line at the old DeLorean Motors factory in Humble, Texas. The company has been restoring old DeLoreans since it closed in 1985, but now it will once again be able to make new cars from warehoused parts. A new one will run you $100,000. (When this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit.) [NBC Dallas-Fort Worth]
