This Week in Sports Social Media got started with one of the greatest wins of all time, saw a curse continue and ended with a missing 7-foot-tall Australian getting found. If that’s not a weird one, we don’t know what is.
Tiger’s a major again

I can’t thank my family, friends and fans enough for their support. Having my family by my side today is something I will never forget. To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for. This jacket sure is comfortable.
It took him over a decade but this past Sunday, the world saw 43 year old Tiger Woods win his 5th Masters in Augusta over a competitive field. After putting on his 5th Green Jacket and pulling within 3 Major titles of the great Jack Nicklaus, another GOAT, Michael Jordan stated for all to hear that this Woods win was indeed the greatest sports comeback off all time.
Brigitte wins too
Maybe playing in an elite field at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur tournament the week prior instilled some confidence in her stroke but this week Brigitte Thibault won her 2nd NCAA tourney taking the Mountain West Conference Championship. It’s only a matter of time before the Fresno State Bulldog takes her talents to the pros but until then, let’s enjoy her wins as much as Tiger’s.
Pascal gets his GLORY
Best news of all this week is the first issue of Glory is here and our cover feature Pascal Siakam was just as excited as we were. Check out the comments…..he even got Serge “Mafuzzy” Ibaka’s approval!
Babcock not down with ‘Drake curse’
In not as pleasant news, the Drake curse is a real thing and we’re not sure that he gets it. Do we even want him sitting courtside at the Raps playoff games now that his latest tour is over? Maybe we should let Kawhi decide?
Ben Simmons Found
How do you lose a 7’ foot tall Australian who dates a Kardashian? Luckily for the 76ers though, it was just the bandwagon Nets fans trying to taunt the young All-Star who, mildly put has a jump shot that leaves something to be desired. Fortunately for him and Philly fans, he responded with 31 points, most of which were scored in paint (with Drake not in the building).
