GOAT parade

Roger Federer wins the French Open, completing his career slam and tying Pete Sampras with 14 majors. He didn't have to beat Murray, Djokovic, or Nadal, but he beat everyone they put in front of him and is now clearly tennis' GOAT.

Eldrick Woods comes from 4 behind, shooting 65 to win the Memorial tourney with two incredible approach shots on 17 and 18. He is also tied with Sampras and Fed with 14 slams, and even though he needs 18 to tie Jack Nicklaus, I am gonna go way out on a limb and say Tiger is golf's GOAT.

Angus, I have one question for you: who is economics' GOAT?

Mungo, political science's?

I love Federer but he's not GOAT yet.

We have to see how the Fed-Nad rivalry plays out.

Economics GOAT = Adam Smith
Political Science GOAT = Plato
