Great news USA swimming fans (all of us): Michael Phelps has announced that he will come out of retirement and start competitively swimming again. The most decorated Olympian ever will race at the Arena Grand Prix at the end of April and looks poised to swim at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
The effect that Phelps’ retirement would’ve had on Olympic swimming could have been analagous...
On Sunday, Jacksonville Jaguars safety Jonathan Cyprien posted a picture to his Instagram posing with President George Bush Sr. However, this man was not the ex-President, he was just some random old man.
Cyprien isn’t alone, as a women got duped by a fake Arian Foster last week. Here’s the picture:

Nick Young has had a career year with the Lakers this season, averaging a career-high 17. 5 PPG, despite missing 18 games with a knee injury. On Sunday night, Swaggy P went up and under for this ridiculously athletic 360 reverse lay-up, going around last year’s DPOY Marc Gasol in the process.
Los Angeles has had its worst season in almost 20 years, but Young has been a lone bright...

Helping publicize the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup in Christchurch, New Zealand, Kate Middleton, wearing heels, played cricket with her husband Prince William. Apparently, the Duchess of Cambridge needs to work on her grip:

Indiana University freshman Julian Batt would have won $1 Million dollars in Wheel of Fortune, but unfortunately with all the letters to the answer ‘The Mythological Hero Achilles’, he blew the pronunciation of “Achilles”. We feel for you, kid.

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur likely played in his final regular season game as a Devil on Sunday and received a standing ovation from the fans. It will be odd to see Marty in a different jersey next year, but he has expressed a desire to continue playing and the Devils have not made it known that they want to re-sign him.

Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Stanton was checked through an open door on Sunday night against the Calgary Flames. You can tell how dangerous of a play this was because of how the Flames players reacted.

Anaheim Ducks forward and NHL Legend Teemu Selanne played in his final regular season game on Sunday. Following the game he shook the hands of every Colorado Avalanche player and then took a retirement victory lap with his former teammate Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who is also retiring. This same impromptu ceremony was done the same way last night with Edmonton Oilers’ legend Ryan...
The Vancouver Canucks have had a terrible year and it only got worse on the last night of the season when Daniel Sedin was crushed from behind by Calgary Flames defenseman Paul Byron. It’s tough to see when things like this happen and hopefully Daniel will be okay.

Minnesota Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov went to play the puck against the Nashville Predators and it went as poorly as possible. Bryzgalov caught a rut and fell down, sliding into the corner as the Preds put the puck into the empty net. Not a good look right before the playoffs.

New York Islanders rookie Justin Johnson stands only 6’0″ 220 lbs but he took on Buffalo Sabres John Scott (6’8″ 255 lbs) in his first NHL Regular Season fight. Giving up 8 inches and 35 lbs is no small task, but Johnson KO’d Scott with a solid one punch. Many people who hate Scott will be rejoicing over this.

It has not been a good week for the San Francisco 49ers, who have already had Colin Kaepernick and Quinton Patton looked at by police for a suspicious incident.

Bubba Watson was able to put it together on Sunday to make a move past Jordan Spieth to claim his second Green Jacket in three years. After tapping in his final putt, he went around and high-fived people surrounding the green with his son in his hands. Bubba truly is a man of the people.

Jordan Spieth is trying to become the youngest Masters Champion ever and he is off to a great start on Sunday. He’s currently -2 through 4 holes after he drained this beautiful shot out of the bunker. 1963, Nicklaus became youngest Masters champ. Seve did it 17 years later. Tiger 17 years after that. Spieth would be 17 years after Woods. — Justin Ray (@JRayESPNGolf) April 12...
Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo has seemed to enjoy his time back with the Panthers since being traded and has been more lively with the fans. On Saturday night, fans got a kick out of Luongo struggling with a broken water bottle, which sprayed everywhere but in his mouth. Some solid comic relief for a team that has struggled all year.

From the tone of his voice and how he reacts to Doc Emerick, I’d have to say that Pierre McGuire and another player were in a bit of a spat during the Philadelphia Flyers-Pittsburgh Penguins game. It’s too bad we couldn’t hear what was said before Pierre shouted “I will” into his mic.
This wasn’t the only time during the game he was right in the action:
