Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Basketball And Bombs

Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Basketball And Bombs

If you’ve been following my obsession with my alma mater, Gonzaga, you can ascertain that I had a fantastic weekend. Not only did I fulfill my plans of not leaving the house/putting on pants between Friday evening and Monday morning, my cherished Bulldogs made it to the big game tonight. So while I have no complaints about this weekend, there are definitely some people that do…

Tiger Woods

Remember 20 years ago, when Tiger Woods won his first of his four green jackets? Well, you won’t be seeing a repeat this year, as that Woods announced this weekend that he will be missing third Masters in the last four years.

In a post on his website, Woods said that while he will attend the Champions Dinner on Tuesday night, he won’t be playing:

Unfortunately, I won’t be competing in this year’s Masterss. I did about everything I could to play, but my back rehabilitation didn’t allow me the time to get tournament ready. I’m especially upset because it’s a special anniversary for me that’s filled with a lot of great memories. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since I won my first green jacket.

Tiger missed all of the 2015-16 season following two back surgeries, and only returned to play in December at the Hero World Challenge. He had be hoping to play at Augusta this year, but ultimately decided he just wasn’t ready.

Pornhub Users

Lots of companies played April Fool’s pranks on their customers, but none was so harsh as the one that Pornhub dropped on their users Saturday.

The porn site displayed this popup after users clicked on the porn of their choosing:

I don’t know who in the hell clicked “Thanks Pornhub!” but those that clicked on the “WTF” button were greeted with a message saying “Happy April Fools! Don’t worry your browsing is always safe and secure, we are fully encrypted using HTTPS protocols.”

Dreamworks

You’d think that with the number one movie at the box office for the weekend, the folks at Dreamworks would have had a pretty good weekend. But while it’s true that The Boss Baby brought in $49 million this weekend, it wasn’t enough to cover the giant hit they took on their other new release this weekend.

The studio was also behind Ghost In A Shell, the live-action retelling of the popular Japanese manga. The film, starring Scarlett Johansson cost $110 million to make, but it only earned $19 million over the weekend, meaning it’s currently running at a deficit of $81 million.

Ain’t enough boss babies in the world to make up for that. [Via Business Insider]

UConn

Not nearly enough attention is paid to the UConn’s women’s basketball team, which has been ridiculously dominant for the last four years. Unfortunately for them, the attention comes as their hopes for a fifth straight title were dashed on Friday by Mississippi State in the semi-final game of the women’s final four.

The Huskies haven’t lost since Nov. 17, 2014, when Stanford beat them in overtime. That’s an 865 day/111 game winning streak that was snapped with a buzzer beater in overtime by the Bulldog’s Morgan William, perhaps avenging last year’s Sweet Sixteen game that saw UConn beating Mississippi State by 60 points.

William reflected on the moment, saying “I live for moments like this. UConn, they’re an incredible team. For me to make that shot against them, it’s unbelievable. I’m still in shock right now. I wanted to take the shot. I wanted to take the shot and I made it.”

Good for William, bad for UConn. But congrats to the Bulldogs! [Via New York Daily News]

South Carolina and Oregon

My boss is sad that his Ducks lost in the final four…but he also told me not to come in tomorrow so I can watch my beloved Gonzaga in the NCAA men’s basketball championship game tonight. So sorry not sorry Gamecocks…and while I’m a little sorry about Oregon, I’m still not coming in tomorrow. #GoZags
