It was a big news week this week, with lots of tragedy mixed in with sporting victories. The Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent man hunt certainly dominated the news. Tennis players were just as horrified as the rest of us, and many shared their thoughts on Twitter. However, if we searched through all the tweets dedicated to Boston we would have a enough Tweets of the Week posts for a year! Here's a small selection.

However, here at OTG we prefer to focus on good news. Adam Scott's victory for Australia was celebrated greatly... some partied a bit harder than others (we are looking at you, Stubbs). For a hilarious breakdown of what went on when Scott claimed the green jacket, head to The Changeover.
