Tiger Woods completed one of the most epic comebacks in sports history on Sunday, winning The Masters for the first time since 2005. For perspective, let's list off a few things that were happening the last time Tiger Woods won perhaps golf's biggest major.

... This young kid named Jimmie Johnson had yet to win a single one of his eventual seven championships. Probably because all of his marathon training at the time.

... Rusty Wallace was competing in what would be his final full-time season in the Cup Series. His Hall of Fame speech has yet to end, however.

... The Dodge Charger had entered its first full season of competition in the Cup series. You're welcome back ANY time ...

... Mark Martin would announce his retirement, only to return the following year, and repeat this process 62 times before actually retiring. It was also so long ago that he was listening to Three-6 Mafia.

... This young, cocky yet undeniably talented kid became Rookie of the Year in the Cup Series. He was so diminutive that Brexton could throw him in the air. At this point, Richard Petty's win total was still safe.

... This cherubic young scamp from Virginia would be named as the full-time driver of the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing entry the following year, but in 2005 Denny Hamlin also ran seven Cup races, which were career races 4,567 through 4,573, we think.

... and this is so random, but Rusty Wallace was taking filmmaker Quentin Tarantino for a ridealong at Bristol Motor Speedway. Given the average number of F-bombs in the average Tarantino film, we assume that was probably multiplied by a factor of 10 during the laps.

... Kasey Kahne looked like this. But he still looks like this, so nevermind.

... Jeff Gordon failed to finish in the top 10 in points for the first time since his rookie season and we think it had something to do with the sunglasses.

…Tony Stewart won his second career championship. Dude looks as stylish in a tux as he does in an evening gown.
