Weekend Winners: Tiger, Ted, España and Enrique Peña Nieto
It was a great weekend to be wearing red: Tiger Woods won his 74th PGA tournament at Congressional, moving him past Jack Nicklaus into second place for total wins, eight short of Sam Snead’s record. Spain, the reigning World Cup champions, defeated Italy 4-0 on Sunday to win its second consecutive Euro championship title, causing many to wonder if they’re the best soccer team of all time. Meanwhile, Enrique Peña Nieto won the presidential election held in Mexico over the weekend—and so begins what will likely be a difficult job for Señor Nieto. Less difficult will be Seth MacFarlane’s negotiation for making Ted 2, as he and his dickish teddy bear brought in an estimated $54.1 million at the box office over the weekend—35% higher than the loftiest prerelease predictions.
