To kick things off, we talked about Iowa State’s new linebacker commitment, and the news of Josh Johnson entering the transfer portal and what it means for next season.

This past weekend, Tiger Woods captured his 5th green jacket at Augusta National, and his 15th major title after over a decade of struggles. Even if you never “forgive” Tiger for his personal transgressions, being able to come back after them and a slew of back and knee injuries and win a major places him near the top of any list of greatest redemption stories. We took some time to reflect on Tiger’s Masters win, as well as a few other great comeback and redemption stories.

Levi stumbled onto an article recently that asked the question “is the Internet still fun?” The author talked about how the internet used to be a place where you could escape some of the stresses of daily and just waste a couple hours watching some stupid YouTube video like “Charlie the Unicorn” or “End of Ze World” or reading some poorly formatted blog about nothing and getting in comment fights with people you’ve never met.

Now, the Internet is such an integral part of our lives, that most people take breaks from the Internet, which is completely the opposite of what it used to be. We discussed what our everyday Internet experiences are like, and if we still get some enjoyment out of them.

What do you think? Is the Internet still fun?
