TDR: Hello, friends
* Off the bench *
* Leading off *
Alright so we have some movement on the leaderboard. Francesco Molinari is playing super well and is at the top tied with Jason Day, Justin Harding and Brooks Koepka. Speaking of Brooks, people are very concerned with his weight. He dropped some poundage bc he wanted to get that summer bod, and the golf people are all very worried about the effect that has on his game. He’s talked about how he felt like people were saying he is too big for golf, now he’s too small AND HE CAN’T MEET YOUR BODY STANDARDS FOR HIM. Whatever, I mean it’s working I guess, because he is literally tied for the lead at the Masters heading into the weekend. Tiger is making his presence known today with some clutch putts so far. It’s probably because of my mock turtleneck I was wearing in support of him yesterday. He was rocking the style that he wore back in the mid 2000s when he was racking up the wins, so I threw my own mock turtleneck on and was mercilessly trolled on Twitter and Instagram that I looked like Elizabeth Holmes. I can’t handle that kind of heat, so I took it off, but Tiger is rocking another one today.
Stanley Cup Playoffs
Alright, time for your Friday wrap-up of the final three games of the opening round for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
- Bruins vs. Maple Leafs: Heyyy congrats, Toronto. The Maple Leafs’ 4-1 win over Boston was the first time they’ve won the opening game in a playoff series since 2003. Rough times for that Boston home crowd who were pretty much silenced by Toronto. Not very polite, Canada.
- Capitals vs. Hurricanes: The Stanley Cup defending champs came out to a hot 3-0 start, but unlike Tampa a couple nights ago, they did not squander it. They ended up winning 4-2, but shout out to Carolina for that late game push. The poor Hurricanes haven’t played in the playoffs in a decade, so they’ll need a little bit more to keep it going.
- Flames vs. Avalanche: Oof, sorry Colorado. The Calgary Flames burned up the opposition winning 4-0 last night. Shoutout to their goaltender Mike Smith. He might have the most boring name in the world, but he helped his team get a big win last night.
