Buzz That Was: All kidding aside
In case you were too busy dancing with Leonardo DiCaprio (or his doppelganger) at Coachella and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed this weekend.
Oh baby! Oh Bubba!
Because green is clearly his color, Bubba Watson won his second Masters in three years on Sunday. Shooting a final-round 69 to finish at 8-under par, the "Golf Boys" star held off Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt by three strokes. Despite Watson's impressive day, it was his adorable son and budding superstar Caleb that stole the show -- again -- from his father.
If you hear any audible "AWWWWWS" around the office today, rest assured your co-workers are just watching that video for the first time and it's nothing to be concerned over.
With his choice of any of the Augusta area's finest restaurants to celebrate with his family and friends, Watson opted to toast to the occasion at... Waffle House. As any self-respecting Southerner would do.
Throughout Sunday night, Watson was of course flocked by thousands of fans on Twitter congratulating him for the win. Some new fans were seemingly so excited they didn't even bother to see if they were congratulating the right guy. Or even a guy with the same last name. Public Service Announcement: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. is NOT Bubba Watson. Apparently some people needed to be reminded.
Hell yeah I won the masters!!!!!!!....???? Wrong bubba peeps. Can't even break 100!- Darrell Wallace Jr (@BubbaWallace) April 13, 2014
Hair today, gone tomorrow
R.I.P. Caroline Wozniacki's pink hair. After shocking the golf world with her bright new 'do during the Par 3 tournament at the Masters on Wednesday, the tennis star was back to blonde on Sunday for the final round. Her fiancée, Rory McIlory, had previously stated Wozniacki just wanted to match the azaleas, but perhaps she realized how badly pink would clash with green if McIlory were to win the tournament. Sadly, her hair change was all for naught as McIlory finished in a tie for eighth place.
We'll never forget you, pink hair. If you need me, I'll be looking at pictures from Wednesday while playing Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You" on loop for the rest of the day.
An estimated 200,000 fans lined the streets of Hartford, Conn., to celebrate the national champion UConn men's and women's basketball teams on Sunday. Rocking "Double Trouble" shirts, the teams were joined by seemingly every high school marching band, politician and actual Husky dog in the state as the made their way through the confetti-laden streets.
In the ultimate "now you KNOW you've made it" sign, Final Four Most Outstanding Player Shabazz Napier was even asked to prom by a screaming teenage girl with a poster that listed her phone number, according to the Hartford Courant. Never one to allow a silent moment, Geno Auriemma graciously offered to go in Napier's place since the star guard would likely be busy with that whole NBA draft thing. That wouldn't be super weird or anything.
Catch of the day
During Sunday's Toronto Blue Jays-Baltimore Orioles game at Camden Yards, the Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion hit a drive down the left-field line. The ball was fair, but that didn't stop the Orioles' ball girl from making the catch of the game.
In her defense, would we be talking about the game at all if she hadn't made the grab? The play was ruled a ground-rule double and the Blue Jays went on to win 11-3.
By George ...
On Sunday, Jacksonville Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien met former President George Bush and, of course, immediately posted a picture of their meeting on Instagram. But there was just one little problem...
While I would love to see a former POTUS publicly wear a shirt with floral embroidery, I feel quite confident in saying that dude is not George Bush, Junior OR Senior OR second cousin, twice removed. He is however some dude with a mild resemblance to the family with interesting fashion sensibilities who just found a whole new way to humiliate the Jaguars' franchise.
For the distraught New York Knicks fans out there going through the seven stages of grief over the disappointing, playoff-less season, a clever Internet troll has just the video for you. Here's "One Shining Moment" complete with all the missed dunks, sad faces and J.R. Smith moments you could ever dream of.
