It was a weird, long Memorial Day weekend in the world of sports
Early Monday morning, golf legend Tiger Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI and jailed for nearly four hours before being released from Palm Beach County jail.
So did ESPN try to clean up the unflattering photo of Woods, one of the most popular athletes in the world, before airing it on their network?

"This is going to be mega-big," Sato said. "We showed the great result today and I am very proud of it."

Bryce Harper can't throw a helmet
After being hit by a pitch thrown by San Francisco Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland, the Washington Nationals' slugger Bryce Harper charged the mound, leading to a tense fight that cleared both benches.
Unfortunately, most people will just remember Harper's laughably off-target helmet toss.
After the game, Harper said he thought the toss was intentional on the part of Strickland, after the right-hander's giving up two home runs to the outfielder during the 2014 NLDS, including this bomb where Harper appeared to linger.
"You never want to get suspended or anything like that, but sometimes you've got to go and get him," Harper said. "You can't hesitate. You either go to first base, or you go after him. And I decided to go after him"

What started off as the normal pushing and shoving you'd expect to see in a baseball scuffle quickly turned ugly when Whitecaps relief pitcher Eduardo Jimenez launched a fastball at a group of Dragons players.
