Buzz That Was: Those Are The Breaks
In case you were too busy starting your Cinco de Mayo festivities early and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's what everyone else was talking about this weekend.
'I'm the best president in the game'
Pretty much every famous person you have ever heard of was at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C. And despite the impressive star power in attendance, the night still belonged to President Barack Obama, who hilariously spoofed Richard Sherman during his speech.
Because of that whole "every famous person was there" thing, Sherman himself was at the event. He didn't publicly comment on the president's impression, which might actually be the most surprising thing about the evening. He did, however, hang with Tony Romo, Tim Tebow and Patrick Stewart. Just as you would have guessed.
Glitter and gold
California Chrome -- the horse, not some new update to your web browser -- won the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, but it was figure skaters-turned-fashion icons Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski who won the weekend with their festive hats.
Yes, Weir's hat does have a FLYING HORSE WITH GLITTERRY, GOLD WINGS on it. Were you expecting anything less?
Blocks and jams
Down one in the final seconds of Game 7 of their first-round NBA playoff series, Kyle Lowry drove the lane with a chance to give the Toronto Raptors the win over the Brooklyn Nets. And ... his shot was blocked by Paul Pierce. Please watch the clip below while playing "The Price is Right" fail horn to maximize enjoyment.
It was a disappointing day overall for the Raptors. Coach Dwane Casey got stuck in Toronto Marathon traffic for a half-hour on his way to the game, so he made a U-turn and rode the subway instead.
But, alas, the day wasn't a total loss. Jay-Z broke his 10-month Twitter silence to congratulate the Raptors on their season. That surely will make them feel better as they clean out their lockers today, right?
Congrats Toronto on a hard fought series. #spreadloveitsthebrooklynway- Mr. Carter (@S_C_) May 4, 2014
Not even a smile?
The San Antonio Spurs blew out the Dallas Mavericks, 119-96, to advance to the second round. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, of course, looked thrilled with the victory and warmly congratulated his stars as they came out of the game. Or something like that.
One more look?
Down two in the final second of Game 6 against the Houston Rockets on Friday, Damian Lillard made the biggest shot of his career as time expired to give the Portland Trail Blazers a 99-98 victory and a ticket to the second round. This is worth a watch, even if you've already seen it 459 times.
Somewhere out there, probably on an expensive vacation, Kobe Bryant is watching it on repeat and whispering to himself, "I could have done that."
New king Cole
Stacy Lewis impressed the crowd at the North Texas LPGA Shootout with a six-stroke victory for her first title of the year, but it was her nephew Cole who drew "AWWWWWWWs" from the gallery throughout the weekend. The adorable toddler followed his aunt and even appeared with her during several interviews.
Watch out, Caleb Watson. Looks like you suddenly have some competition for "cutest kid on the golf course."
Shaun White goes to prom
Like many high school students, Mount Saint Joseph Academy (Flourtown, Pa.) senior Carly Monzo decided to ask a celebrity to prom. Unlike most high school students, her wish actually came true. Monzo asked Shaun White to attend the big night with her via video and -- unbeknownst to Monzo -- White agreed to come. Coordinating with the school, White and his band "Bad Things" surprised Monzo on Friday night at the soiree. The band performed and White hung out with Monzo, dancing and posing for selfies, throughout the evening.
It appeared to be an amazing night for all involved. Except that is, for Monzo's actual date, who probably was left to toil alone by the snack table once White arrived.
