Should Masters champion Adam Scott become the next Bachelor?

It would be a long shot, but not for lack of merit. The 32-year-old Australian golfer is wealthy, successful, charming, athletic, good-looking and single!

Robert Mills, the reality show's producer, first proposed the idea on Twitter, writing, "So ... Adam Scott as the next #Bachelor?? What say you, #Bachelornation?"

Host Chris Harrison added, "Yep it's now officially the most dramatic #Masters ever! Rumors this will be settled in a hot tub instead of replaying 18th #Masters."

Many fans, understandably, love the prospect of gratuitous shirtless shots of the golfer, who's dated Kate Hudson and tennis star Ana Ivanovic.

Don't hold your breath, though. While Adam Scott is a man in demand, with his golf game reaching new heights, no way he's taking 2-3 months off.

Still, what do you think: Adam Scott as The Bachelor?

Wrigley Field is about to enter the 21st century.

The Chicago Cubs and their native city have agreed on the terms of a $500 million facelift for the team's iconic home, one that will include an electronic scorecard that is three times the size of the hand-operated unit currently in centerfield.

The Cubs will also play approximately 10 more nights games per year under the new deal, something that should help then team increase revenue and - gasp! - might even turn the squad into winners.

Wrigley Field has been around for 99 years and is the second-old ballpark in Major League Baseball.

"You always have to keep an eye on those cheaters :)" he wrote.

Good one, T.

Tiger incurred the penalty after he hit a wedge shot into the water and officials deemed the placement of his new ball was not in accordance with the rules.

Thomas and Lindsey Vonn divorced following four years of marriage. She's now dating Woods, who will be forever known for a different kind of cheating.

The New York Post also couldn't resist linking Tiger's illegal second round drop at the Masters - won by Adam Scott - with his infamous cheating scandal.

Check out the paper's weekend edition cover after the jump ...

Dennis Rodman is returning to Pyongyang this summer.

At a charity gala at the Fontainebleu Hotel in Miami Beach, he told the Miami Herald of his plans to return to North Korea and see BFF Kim Jong Un again.

"I'm going back August 1," he said. "We have no plans really, as far as what we're going to be doing over there, but we'll just hang and have some fun!"

A father gave his son a foul ball only to have the youngster immediately throw it back toward the field from the upper deck during Sunday's A's-Tigers game.

The ball was originally caught by a separate fan, who gave it to the kid's dad, who gave it to the kid, who launched the thing as the father said thanks. Watch:

After his mother threw up her hands in shock, the boy realized that perhaps this wasn't the brightest idea ... and buried himself in his seat in shame.

At least he has company. Remember this little girl ...

No offense, Rebel Wilson, but you've been upstaged.

Adam Scott became the first Australian golfer to win The Masters, setting off a national celebration Down Under, where it was already this morning.

Scott, 32, defeated Angel Cabrera on the second playoff hole at Augusta National, draining a 12-foot birdie putt for his first career major win. Take a look:

The Masters went to a sudden-death playoff for the second year in a row after Scott and Cabrera made matching birdies on the final hole of regulation.

Watch Adam drain a 25-foot putt to take the lead (before Cabrera matched him) and nearly break caddie Steve Williams' arm with one of the all-time high-fives:

Pro volleyball player and fitness expert Gabrielle Reece has some interesting advice on relationships in her new book, My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper.

The 43-year-old's most valuable piece of advice for making love last?

Gabrielle Reece, Laird Hamilton

Also a former model, Reece has been married 17 years to surfing legend Laird Hamilton, with whom shares daughter Reece Viola, 9, and son Brody, 5.

She elaborated on the controversial statement on Today Friday:

For weeks, Kobe Bryant has been carrying the Los Angeles Lakers and their playoff chances on his back.

But it was a different body part that felled the NBA superstar last night, as Bryant tore his Achilles tendon, ending his season and possibly beyond.

Even the biggest Laker hater has to be shaking his or her head at the news. Who wants to see one of sports' living legends go out in such a way?

But is Kobe done for good? The injury - and perhaps some pain medication - prompted Bryant to go on an EPIC Facebook rant this morning at 3:30.

It includes words of doubt, inspiration... and a warning to any bear looking for a fight. And it's worth just reading in its entirety below:
