-- Bill Belichick was focused before facing the Lions on Sunday night, so much so that he ignored some kids in the stands who reached out for high-fives.

Twitter went nuts with the footage of the snub and Chris Gronkowski was one of the many who reacted.

“Straight savage,” Rob Gronkowski brother tweeted, along with a few laughing emojis and the hashtag “#forthekids.”

Gronkowski tweeted throughout the game while watching his brother and the Patriots lose to the Lions.

-- Tiger Woods won his first tournament title in five years on Sunday afternoon with a victory at the PGA Tour Championship.

Woods had an enormous following to the 18th green as thousands followed him to cheer him on.

"I was pretty emotional when Rory [McIlroy> was tapping out, he was finishing out,'' Woods said. "I looked around, and the tournament was over because I'd already put the bunker shot on the green, and I'd won 80. 80 is a big number. I've been sitting on 79 for about five years now, and to get 80 is a pretty damned good feeling.''

Donald Trump tweeted Woods’ performance, calling it “exciting.”

And Jack Nicklaus congratulated Woods on the big win.


QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Yeah, it happened. Brady's my quarterback. That's all. Wasn't going anywhere without Brady." -- Rob Gronkowski, on the report the Patriots were close to trading him to the Lions
