Best Tweets – Tiger’s plane lands in Augusta

Twitter nearly broke on Tuesday morning when The Augusta Chronicle’s Scott Michaux reported that Tiger Woods’ plane had been spotted in Augusta, meaning a pre-Masters practice round was in the offing, and a likely Tiger return next week.

Here are some of the better Tweets in the moments after the news of a plane-sighting broke.

Crazy world we live in, huh?

Basketball (after golf) with His Airness, Tom Brady …and Keegan Bradley?

What happens when Michael Jordan, Tom Brady and PGA Champion Keegan Bradley end up in the Bahamas together?

They play a little pickup hoops – after they had played a round of golf. Apparently, Bradley tested the waters, telling Scott Van Pelt on “SVP and Russillo” (listen above, especially for the additional golf stories, including MJ’s presses) that he asked Luke Donald about going to shoot some hoops, hoping Jordan would take the bait.

He did.

And so we have this clip, found on Instagram:

Reminds us of when this happened.

Pretty great. Wouldn’t mind seeing something similar here. We know MJ likes No. 2…

Alton and Shelia shine the silverware and meticulously fold dozens of cloth napkins.

Thomas sits a large bowl of eggs behind him as he readies his omelet station.

“It’s a lot of preparation in such a short period of time, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication,” said Laura, the Carolina Dining Room’s morning manager. “We are lucky to have such a great team.”
