Last night, the Toronto Raptors opened their regular season at Scotiabank arena against the Washington Wizards. The significance of it? Well it was their first regular season game in the city of Toronto in 20 months.

The coronavirus pandemic and the border restrictions caused them to spend the last 600 days playing in the NBA bubble in Orlando, and then at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay.

To thank the fans for their patience and continued support, the team put a video presentation on the jumbotron that got the crowd absolutely hyped. It was followed by a ‘Lets Go Raptors’ chant that nearly tore the roof off the building.

We can only do so much to describe the electricity in the air. See it for yourself below:

Tiger Woods admits he will never be 100% healthy again, and will be forced to be picky with which tournaments he decided to play moving forward.

But don’t worry Tiger fans, the 15-time major champion will only be participating if he feels he has a legitimate shot at winning. Ahead of the PGA championship later this week, Woods reveals he feels much better in comparison to how he felt the last time he competed on a golf course.

“Am I ever going to have full mobility? No. Never again…But I’ll be able to get stronger. It’s going to ache, but that’s the way it’s going to be” said Woods.

“I’m excited about (this week). I’m not going to play that much going forward, so anytime I do play, it’s going to be fun to play and to compete. There are only so many money games you can play at home.”

The 46-year old played at the Masters last month after a long layoff. Despite a strong start to the tournament, his durability eventually impacted his play and fell farther away from the leaderboard as the tournament progressed. He ended up finishing in 47th place with a 13-over 301.

The 2022 edition of the PGA Championship will take place at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma from May 19-22.
