Buzz That Was: Who Needs Paris?
In case you were too busy trying to help Miley Cyrus recover her stolen Maserati and missed out on sports, we've got you covered. Here's what everyone else was talking about this weekend.
Williams and Wozniacki take Miami
Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki were both been eliminated early in the French Open, but that didn't stop the new BFFs from partying like winners all weekend. The duo hit Miami, and the city may never be the same. They got the festivities started at Game 6 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals on Friday night, where they posed with Greg Oden and the Miami Heat's trophy. Because who needs some Grand Slam trophy when you can pose with Oden and the trophy the team let him hold for 30 seconds?!?
After the game, the newly single Woz demonstrated her skills on the ones and twos over DJ duties at a club. Jealous yet, Rory?
On Saturday, the party continued as the tennis version of "Thelma and Louise" (sorry, Venus) went to the beach. They posed for pictures, enjoyed the sunshine and crashed a wedding. You know, just a typical day in South Beach. Serena and her leopard-print, long-sleeve bathing suit stumbled across a bride and groom exchanging vows, so she naturally went over to offer her congratulations and participate in what might be the greatest picture in the history of pictures.
And sure, while swimwear might not be the most appropriate wedding attire, at least she's not wearing white. OH, THE HORROR THAT WOULD BE.
The Los Angeles Kings advanced to the Stanley Cup finals in dramatic fashion, beating the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 in overtime of Game 7 on Sunday. And it took the New York Rangers, their upcoming opponent, all of eight minutes to start talking trash.
But the Kings weren't going to take the barb lying down. They fired back with a quip that would make your third-grade computer teacher proud.
@NYRangers oh so it's gonna be like that Mavis Beacon?- LA Kings (@LAKings) June 2, 2014
Yawn. This might be the lamest Twitter feud since Courtney Love tried picking a fight with (insert just about any celebrity's name here). Here's to hoping the on-ice action is significantly more interesting.
Just a day after being eliminated from the NBA playoffs, Indiana Pacers players Lance Stephenson, Chris Copeland and Rasual Butler stopped by the New York Liberty-Indiana Fever game. Clearly not letting that little Game 6 loss damper his spirits, Stephenson even participated in an organized halftime game of "Simon Says" with fans on the court. You can now pat yourself on the back if you immediately guessed that the line "Simon Says, blow in Lance's ear" was said because, duh.
Thankfully for everyone, Stephenson did not flop to the floor or attempt to get in the Fever's or Liberty's huddle at any point during the game.
With one series to go before the NBA offseason begins, the Kevin Love sweepstakes are officially heating up. Please prepare yourself for the subsequent rumors that occur for every location the Minnesota Timberwolves star visits for the next six weeks or so. On Sunday, Love appeared at Fenway Park to catch a Boston Red Sox game or to SIGN WITH THE CELTICS! The rumor mill went into overdrive after he was photographed with Celtics guard Rajon Rondo.
Red Sox designated hitter and beloved Bostonian David Ortiz, who previously played in Minnesota, even caught the Love bug and offered some moving advice.
Safe to say, we can assume Love is DEFINITELY coming to Boston. That is, until we see him spotted tomorrow having lattes with Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles.
After a strong Sunday start at the Memorial for Hideki Matsuyama, things took a turn for the worse late in his round. He hit his ball into the water on No. 16 and carded a double bogey. After backing that up with a bogey on 17, he broke his driver after a disappointing drive on 18.
Despite the horrific chain of events, the 22-year-old managed to not only make birdie on the final hole but forced a playoff with Kevin Na. Without a driver, Matsuyama won the first extra hole to claim his first PGA Tour victory.
Jack Nicklaus later predicted the young star will become one of the "world's great players over the next 10 to 15 years." In summary, Sunday turned out to a pretty decent day for Hideki Matsuyama after all.
Party like Swaggy P
Buzz favorite Nick "Swaggy P" Young turned 29 on Sunday, so naturally his Los Angeles Lakers teammates and friends threw him a 1990s-themed party. Everyone embraced the theme -- except Robert Sacre, who either hates all things mesh, fluorescent and ripped or just wasn't actually invited.
Since Young's girlfriend, Iggy Azalea, doesn't appear in any photos, I'm going to assume she was too fancy to attend and was likely somewhere in the fast lane from L.A. to Tokyo.
