We’ve got another epic Australian Open Final coming at us after Novak Djokovic crushed Lucas Pouille last night in their semifinal matchup. Yes, that means we will have a highly anticipated Novak Djokovic vs. Rafael Nadal finals. Oooh Baby. Djokovic will be going for his record 7th Australian Open title and 15th Grand Slam title overall for his career, while Nadal will be going for his 18th career Grand Slam title. Only Roger Federer (20) has more. Will YOU be up at 3:30 AM ET on Sunday morning to take in this historic matchup? Please send us videos of that morning routine if you will be.
The Farmers Insurance Open is happening in San Diego this week. This tournament is Tiger Woods’ S**t. He loves it here. He’s won eight times at Torrey Pines. After the first round, Woods shot a respectable 2-under 70 to kick things off, and now he’s going to try and really get aggressive today to make the cut and try to get win no. 9. Jon Rahm leads the pack at 10-under, so El Tigre has a bit of work to do.

Patrick Mahomes went to Top Golf in Orlando while he was in town for the Pro Bowl. He is really good at hitting golf balls. Not to make this about me, but I was literally at this Top Golf while he was there. The best part is Top Golf was closed for a party because the PGA Show was in town, and apparently he walked up and said “But I really like Top Golf.” Idk if that’s true, but we’re going with it. I searched for him far and wide (that’s a lie, there was a line to get upstairs, so I went home instead) and here he was just bangin’ balls. Patrick Mahomes – what can’t he do.
I feel like anytime a football player tackles anyone other than another football player, it’s a little much. The family-friendly, fun in the sun Pro Bowl Skills Challenge is filled with activities like dodgeball and “the 40-yard Splash”. Lighthearted good times. Then New York Jets safety Jamal Adams had the idea to single out Pat the Patriot (the Patriots mascot) and tackle him. Poor Pat was walking around the field with other mascots, when he suddenly turned around to find Adams ready to take him down. Listen, Jamal. Not a good look. Now everyone is cringing, Pat is on the ground not moving and there are reports floating around that he had to go to the hospital. Jamal’s response was literally, “I didn’t hit him that hard.” The Pro Bowl is ridiculous. Stay safe out there mascots.
