The ongoing spat between pro golfers Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia got ugly on Tuesday when Garcia made a racist remark in reference to Woods.

The drama started when Garcia accused Woods of distracting him during the Players' golf Championship in May. Ever since then Garcia and Woods have traded barbs and avoided each other. But things got nasty when Garcia was asked if he would invite Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open in June.

"Sure. We'll have him 'round every night," Garcia allegedly said. "We will serve fried chicken."

Joakim Noah is ejected from game 2 of the playoffs

The Miami HEAT held a cookout on their home court after hammering the Chicago Bulls 115-78 to even the second round series 1-1.

Manti Te'o

Not one NFL team showed interest in former Notre Dame star Manti Te'o in the 1st round of Thursday's 2013 NFL draft.

NFL scouts weary of Te'o's distracting presence in the NFL locker room declined to draft the former Heisman candidate who had a terrible showing in the NFL Combines in February.

If you recall, Te’o made headlines for mourning a dead girlfriend who didn't exist.

A male friend later stepped forward to say he pretended to be Te'o's dead girlfriend for 3 years because he was in love with him. This led to rampant speculation that Te'o himself was gay.

West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith also wasn't chosen in the 1st round -- probably for the same reason that Te'o was passed over.

Kevin Ware trophy

Louisville Cardinal's guard Kevin Ware suffered a possible career-ending injury during the first half of the Midwest Regional final against Duke in the NCAA college tournament on Sunday (Mar 31) in Indianapolis.

The injury occurred when Ware sprinted across the floor at full speed to challenge a 3-point shot by Duke's Tyler Thornton. As he landed he rolled his ankle, transferring the impact of the hard landing to his right leg which caused a shear force fracture of the tibia bone. Part of the bone was left protruding from his lower leg.

As horrific as his injury looked, Ware was composed enough to encourage his teammates to beat Duke to advance to the Elite 8, which the team did in convincing fashion.
