Bubba Watson
Twitter
Bubba Watson was at Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Cleveland, where Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors took a 3-0 series lead over the LeBron James led Cavs.

Bubba Watson and Jason Day were on hand -- court side -- for Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night in Cleveland.

Both are huge fans of the NBA and Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is a huge fan of golf and, it turns out, one heck of a player too.

Watson teased his trip to Game 3 earlier in the day by tweeting a photo of a signed LeBron James jersey with signed Kevin Durant shoes right in front of it.

And here's Watson at the game with Day and Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer.

Watson was able to get a little time in with Curry at the game too.

The seats... not bad at all.

And then, at the end of the game, Watson snuck up on Curry during an interview.

Here's the video, where Curry goes on to say he'll be watching Watson next week in the U.S. Open at Erin Hills:

alligator, golf
Fripp Island Activity Center on Facebook
Alligators on golf courses just seem to be getting bigger and bigger these days.

Lately it feels like alligators on golf courses are trying to one-up one another.

Just when I think I've blogged about the biggest gator I've ever seen, BOOM, another sneaks up (as much as something that looks the size of an alligator can sneak up) and proves me wrong.

The latest example comes from the Ocean Point Golf Links at Fripp Island in South Carolina, where -- according to the Fripp Island Activity Center -- this monster of a gator took a stroll across the course's fourth fairway:

Here's the post from Fripp Island Activity Center:

This American alligator traveled down the 4th fairway of Ocean Point Golf Links at Fripp Island this evening! While a small crowd of humans and deer kept watch, he paid us no mind and had only his next pond in his sights. We measured a spot in the grass where this big male laid down, and he measured just short of 12 feet! If you ever see a gator travelling out of water, stay back and let him continue his journey. It's amazing to be able to observe and coexist with these ancient giants, and respect is key! Video by Jessica Miller #onlyonfripp #seeyoulateralligator #bigalwho #naturalistprobs

I must say, I do enjoy experiencing these gator encounters on video rather than in person.

Jason Day
Instagram
In support of his adopted home-state Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, Jason Day had a custom pair of golf shoes made for this week's Memorial Tournament in Ohio.

Australian Jason Day calls Columbus, Ohio home. It's where his wife, Ellie, is from.

Having been in Ohio several years, Day has become an avid fan of the Buckeye State's sports teams -- particularly the Columbus Bluejackets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the NBA Finals between the Cavs and Golden State Warriors tipping off on Thursday evening, Day was going to show his support for the Lebron James-led Cavs with some special Nike golf shoes for the opening round of the Memorial Tournament (in Dublin, Ohio).

Check out the color-scheme on these custom kicks:

You may remember back in December 2015 when -- sitting court-side with her husband -- Ellie Day was crashed into by James attempting to save a ball from going out of bounds. The blow sent Ellie to the hospital and, thankfully, she was OK. She received this message from James on Twitter after the incident:

Clearly, no hard feelings on behalf of the Days who are hoping to see the Cavs successfully defend the NBA crown.
