    Most surprising sports news over the weekend

    Quite the sports weekend the last few days! Just curious to see what shocked people the most.


    For me, it was watching Y.E. Yang beat Tiger.

    I don't think Bolt is real surprising news.

    I think Yang's win over Tiger wins this one going away.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Although, Usain's new 100 time is wicked fast.

    Not only was Yang's win surprising, I was shocked by the way he did it. He was incredibly solid all day long, and his shot on the last hole was nothing short of amazing.

    People claim that Tiger blew it, but I think Yang earned it just as well.

    I agree. Tiger did miss an awful lot of putts that just burned the edge of the hole, but everyone was having trouble there. It's a testament to Tiger that he was still right there after all that, but Yang deserves all the credit for a big win.

    Most surprising - the Cubs did not lose over the weekend.
