Jack Meyer

This 9-year-old Miami Heat fan reached almost unprecedented internet fame after he lauded his favorite team as they dejectedly walked back to the locker room following a brutal Game 5 loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. “Good effort, good job” immediately became a part of the cultural zeitgeist and will stay for some time. Meyer is actually a remarkable kid. He’s upbeat, positive, and always able to find the silver lining. Gotta respect that.

Nicklas Lidstrom

Perhaps the NHL’s best defenseman ever, the Detroit Red Wings legend retired after 20 years of sterling play. He singlehandedly broke every heart in Michigan and was honored by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Eventful week.

Tiger Woods
This remarkable chip-in on the 16th hole of Sunday’s round netted him the Memorial and his 73rd career tour victory. Jack Nicklaus called it the greatest shot he’d ever seen. Golf got way more interesting as a result. Woods is also the odds-on favorite to win the U.S. Open. Will we be watching? You bet your sweet ass.

Vitaly Zdorovetskiy
Capitalizing on the super-weird Zombie Apocalypse craze, this intrepid prankster acted like a flesh-eating killer. It’s quite possibly the stupidest thing an alive human could do, but it was sorta funny.

Jon Stewart
The late-night talker started and continued an all-out assault on New York City Mayor Micheal Bloomberg’s ridiculous large-drink ban. As good a cause as any.

Lax Bros
The subject of quite the Boston Globe profile, it’s high time the entire lot of them were honored for keeping it lax.

You tell us. Who is the Bro of the Week?
