Latest buzz: Nats spat and more

Even when they’re not on the course, Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia have been dominating the headlines lately, and yesterday was no different — though this time, it was ultimately for all the wrong reasons after Garcia told an unfunny joke at an appearance in England.

However, the Sergio-Tiger ongoing slap fight wasn’t the only thing going on in the sports world yesterday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers won the draft lottery (while their owner channeled "My Cousin Vinny"), and the Spurs baffled the Grizzlies yet again, to take a 2-0 series lead.

In baseball, Mike Trout went cycling against the Seattle Mariners, and on the gridiron, Super Bowl L was awarded to the Bay Area for the first time since 1985.
