OLYMPICS

The 2018 Winter Olympics are over, and Norway landed on top with 39 medals (14 Gold), followed by Germany with 31 (14 Gold), Canada 29 (11 Gold), USA 23 (9 Gold) and the Netherlands with 20 (8 Gold). The next Olympic games will be the summer games held in Tokyo in 2020!

BASKETBALL

After a loss to the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron James showed his frustration by criticizing the refs for protecting the outside shooter instead of calling fouls when players drive the basket. James said, 'We're at a point now where we protect the shooter more than the driver. There's no reason I should be going to the line four times in a game when I drive 100 times to the paint and I'm getting hit and slapped and grabbed and whatever and whatnot. We protect the shooter. That's what it's turned into. 'Chicks dig the long ball,' and that's what it's about.'

GOLF

Unless you’re watching “Happy Gilmore”, you don’t usually hear yelling on the course and Justin Thomas likes it that way. On the 16th hole of the Honda Classic, a fan yelled “Get in the bunker”. Thomas wasn’t too happy with that and could be heard saying, “Who said that? Who yelled for that ball to get in the bunker? Was that you? Enjoy your day, buddy, you’re gone.” No one saw the fan after that, so apparently the fan was kicked out. Happily for Thomas, he won the tournament.
