LEADING OFF

PHOTOPhotograph by Fred Vuich For Sports IllustratedIt Takes Tiger to Tango A solid drive on the 72nd hole of the Players Championship had Tiger Woods spinning his club and dancing out of the tee box. And with good reason: The shot set up a routine par to wrap up a two-stroke win, Woods's second Players title. Sergio García—with whom Woods feuded all weekend—was six over on the last two holes to finish six shots back.PHOTOPhotograph by Evan Habeeb/USA Today SportsWho's the Rarest of Them All? A perplexed fan in an old-school Caps jersey—Rangers colors, dude!—stood out in a sea of red last Saturday in Washington at Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against New York. In addition to laying a nice check on Rangers left wing Mats Zuccarello (36), Washington center Mike Ribeiro scored at 9:24 of overtime to give the Capitals a 2--1 win.PHOTOPhotograph by Joerg Mitter/Global-NewsroomGhost Rider in The Sky If a motocross freestyle rider performs a stunt in a ghost town, does his revving engine make a sound? In this case the question is moot: Ronnie Renner did have an (off-camera) audience of fans who turned up at the Calico Ghost Town in Yermo, Calif., to see him perform on May 8. The jump was to promote a Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour event, which was held in nearby Glen Helen.
