Matt's Sports Report

Keeping an eye on some interesting developments back home in the States:

- At Augusta National:

"Tiger Woods tied a Masters record with seven straight birdies and surged past Chris DiMarco to take a three-stroke lead into Sunday's final round at Augusta National. Woods shot a 7-under 65, one stroke better than the second-round score that got him back in contention. He opened the tournament with a 74.

"Not bad, huh?'' Woods said, smiling. "It's been a while, hasn't it? Most majors, you're not going to be making a whole bunch of birdies. You're going to be making a bunch of pars.''

Just when everyone was beginning to say his run was done. Not quite. Live Leaderboard here.

UPDATE: Tiger wins his 4th Green Jacket and ninth major championship, beating out Chris DiMarco in a playoff. Halfway there Jack! (to Nicklaus' record 18 majors, for those who may not know)

- The Bus, Jerome Bettis, will come back for the 2005 season with the greatest football team in NFL history, my Pittsburgh Steelers.

- The Chicago Bulls, for the first time in the post-Michael Jordan era, have made the playoffs. I guess this is the compensation for those Illini fans still bummin' after UNC .
