Tiger Woods approached the 18th tee and exhaled. He took three practice swings in succession before sailing his ball down the fairway. And then chaos ensued. Tiger is officially back and here to stay.

She's bout to send a hanging curve to the second deck

There's a missing person flyer for the jump shot of Ben Simmons heading into Game 3 at Barclays Center. This brings back memories of the Deron Williams missing poster from a few years ago. (Photo: @APOOCH)

Good episode. Kirschner seems like a really easy interview. Ask a good question and he goes into a nice detailed answer. Good idea to interview beat writers for teams with free agent targets.

Like a lot of people, Michael Jordan watched Tiger Woods win the Masters Sunday with awe and wonder. Like almost no one, MJ could relate to how Woods did it. I talked with him about it, in @TheAthleticDC:

“this was like a moon landing." how did the Mavericks plan Dirk's retirement ceremony when they weren't even sure he was retiring? it took 4 months, 5 basketball legends, Dirk's favorite Green Day song, a "stealth SWAT team," and a huge Shawn Kemp fan.

Chris Sale says he's "as frustrated as I've ever been on a baseball field" after falling to 0-4 on the season.

I love this song!

Thirty wins (the Hawks won 29) isn’t a benchmark that should be celebrated in any way, but this team never quit all season long, and that should be a reason for optimism. @ChrisKirschner

Quoted @WilliamPatriots

Take your standard sportswriter that earns 150K per year, Russell Wilson is guaranteed $107 million in his new contract. It would take a sportswriter 713 years to earn that much money.

My first two offers coming out of school to do local TV were under 22K a year, but yes 150K is definitely the standard!

Warriors All-Star DeMarcus Cousins has been diagnosed with a torn left quad, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Devastating for Cousins, who had MRI early this morning.
