This was a jam-packed weekend. Kobe Bryant is facing a potential career-ending injury. Tiger Woods was assessed a two-stroke penalty that basically took him out of contention after a viewer called in to complain. I still want to know who has the phone number to call and how they got it. Adam Scott gave a performance for the ages in winning his first major.
Twitter was spectacular and here are some of the best tweets from a great weekend.
Anything is possible.
you can't talk about your good heart, then drop f-bombs in the next sentence and still want to be taken seriously. #rhoareunion

She’s fine, though. With her crazy ass.

That will be the only time those two are in the same sentence.
Glad to see NCAA isn't only organization w convoluted rulebook subject to arbitrary interpretation. Does this make Tiger Shabazz Muhammad?

People are stupid. There is no way I’m withdrawing myself.
The issue is the culture of golf. Players call penalties on themselves. That's what makes it unique. People want Tiger to go above & beyond.
— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) April 13, 2013
With all due respect, that is dumb.
Tiger missed a chance to enhance his legend. It would've been bigger for him to withdraw with honor than to continue playing under a cloud.

I can’t think of a worse season.
literally the worst Laker season I have ever experience. Stacked Laker team struggles to make playoffs, Jerry Buss dies, KB tears Achilles

Kid earned my respect.
Yesterday, Tiger Woods on Tianlang Guan’s ruling: “Rules are rules.” Today, Guan on Tiger's ruling: “Rules are rules.” Whoa. Kid’s a baller.

He should have tried it.
If Tiger had said "Winter rules" in a Ted Knight/Judge Smails voice before dropping the ball, would it still have been a penalty?

It was one of the better performances of the year.
The judges saw that fight a lot closer than it was. Rigondeaux was never really hurt. Stunned twice. Donnaire was man handled
— Jorge Sedano (@SedanoShow) April 14, 2013
He’s such a great fighter; hopefully, people will give him a chance.
If I never see Rigondeaux fight again, I'll be OK. He has no interest in engaging. He'll win a lot of fights but entertain in very few

No love for the Wu?

#42movie also makes the racism robinson battled cartoonish & Whites' awakening so simple its a diservice to how pernicious racism is. #42

They really seemed legit.
"42" is an undisputed No. 1 at the box office. This won't ruin the movie for you: The old ballpark scenes are awesome. They feel real.
— Terence Moore (@TMooreSports) April 14, 2013
That is awesome.
How good's the Jackie Robinson movie? Halfway through my 10-year-old son says, Next season I want to wear 42. Dang. Got something in my eye.

He’s got game.
Did you guys know that Adam frequented the women's tennis tour ( along with Sergio and Rory) when he dated Ana Ivanovic? Now I'm gossiping!

Caddies make a huge difference.
Does Steve Williams ask Adam Scott to let him pick the menu for the Champions Dinner after that read on the #Masters-winning putt?

— Brian Floyd (@BrianMFloyd) April 15, 2013
It was marvelous!
Also, rare is the golf playoff where every shot is a quality one…by both players. Adam Scott won it…Cabrera didn't lose it. #Masters
— Todd Wright (@Todd_Wright) April 15, 2013
This must happen.
Adam Scott on talking to his mentor, Greg Norman, about this win: "a phone call isn't going to be enough; I'd like to share a beer with him"

It will be discussed now.
Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak: Using the amnesty provision to waive Kobe Bryant in July was not even something being discussed.

Can’t wait to see how this plays out.
