Vikings running back Adrian Peterson didn't want to give away his team's draft strategy, but he lit up when I mentioned USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil. "When that question came out of your mouth," Peterson said, "that's the name that popped up in my mind."... Former Raiders executive and current NFL Network analyst Michael Lombardi told me that being informed is the key to combine interviews: "I would say to the player, 'I know every answer to every question I'm going to ask you. I just want to see if you're gonna lie.'"... Danica Patrick drives for Tony Stewart's racing team, but the defending NASCAR champ won't give her a break. I wondered if Stewart would nudge her car on the final lap. "I'm going to do something to win the race," Stewart said. "I'll say sorry later."... I asked David Feherty whom he'd most like to interview for his eponymous show on the Golf Channel. "Bill Murray," Feherty said. "He's one of the most important characters in golf over the last 50 years. He did so much to scrub off golf's polished image."
