WebPulse: From the high court to the b-ball court

Elena Kagan was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Here’s a quick glance at the collective consciousness of the Web on Monday:

Many people want to know more about Solicitor General Elena Kagan who President Obama nominated to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court. Besides being former dean of Harvard Law School, she once clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall, who nicknamed her "Shorty."

Basketball player Rajon Rondo and baseball pitcher Dallas Braden were all the rage on the Web. But beating both out for most searched on Monday was Golf Channel reporter Win McMurry. She mispronounced on air the medical problem that made Tiger Woods withdraw from the final round of the Players Championship in Florida on Sunday. Woods said he is suffering from a "bulging disk."

If you're flying on British Airways, chances are you were trying to figure out if the company's upcoming strike is going to affect you. Cabin crews will go on strike for 20 days between May 18 and June 9, the union that represents them said Monday.
