San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker may not have been the star of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but hey — at least he didn’t have this to contend with:
In case you’d forgotten, some New Orleans Hornets fan (now they’d be a Pelicans fan, we suppose) had the chutzpa to bring this life-size cardboard cut-out of Parker’s ex-wife Eva Longoria to a Spurs-Hornets semifinals game back in 2008.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea has boosted to half a million dollars a reward for tips about the mysterious billionaire who the authorities believe owns a ferry that sank last month, police said Monday. Meanwhile, five employees at the ship’s operator have been indicted.
The ten-fold increase in the reward comes as officials struggle to find Yoo Byung-eun on allegations of tax evasion, embezzlement and professional negligence. Prosecutors have said that a failure to spend enough money on safety may be a reason for the April 16 sinking.
This was the moment Gareth Bale was meant to be in.
With the final of the Champions League deadlocked 1-1 in the the second period of extra time, the 24-year-old Welsh winger scored the decisive goal for Real Madrid. Less than a year earlier, Real had broken financial records to get bring him to Spain. Bale’s breakthrough tally came in the 110th minute of game in which he had squandered his early chances against Atletico Madrid on Saturday evening in Lisbon.
“I’ve learned from past experiences to keep going, to forget about the chances you miss and keep persevering,” Bale said after his team’s eventual 4-1 win, via The Associated Press. “The celebrations of the crowd meant everything to me.”

What’s more, Nordegren is supportive of Woods’ relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.
ATLANTA (AP) — A boy was taken to an Atlanta hospital after being struck in the head with a foul ball during the seventh inning of the Braves’ game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee leadoff hitter Carlos Gomez lined a pitch into the stands along the first-base line behind the Atlanta dugout. Pitcher Julio Teheran heard the child get hit and crouched down on the mound in obvious anguish. Gomez also looked toward the stands with concern. Someone in the Braves dugout threw a towel into the stands, but the boy did not appear to be bleeding.
On May 16, Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk gave the Marshall Undergraduate Commencement Speech at the University of Southern California. He distilled his message about how to succeed after graduation into these five points:
1. Work super hard. Every waking hour.
2. Attract great people around you. A company is only a group of people gathered together to create a product or service.
