While preparing for my mothers to come and visit, who will keep me busy till Tuesday, I've missed a few tidbits.
No one watched the women's US Open final. This is a relative statement of course, but still... (Thanks, Savannah)
Sam Querrey fell through a glass table and injured his arm. Glad it wasn't more serious, but would it be insensitive to call him a klutz?
Gustavo Kuerten celebrates the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Former ATP World Tour No. 1 Gustavo Kuerten, who attended the election ceremony to host the 2016 Olympic Games in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Friday, is delighted Rio de Janeiro was selected as the host city.
“It is amazing,” said Kuerten. “Some years ago this chance seemed so far [away], but I believed that Brazil was getting prepared to face this new opportunity.
“I think that we [have] got everything quite will organized, and as a consequence we will have the chance to develop all kinds of sports in our country.”
Kuerten competed for Brazil at two Olympic Games at Sydney in 2000 and Athens four years later.
Brazil is the first South American country to host the Olympic Games. Rio won a majority of the 95 votes, eliminating Madrid in the final round. Tokyo and Chicago had already been knocked out.
All I can say is:
It's. About. Damn. Time.
Miss 100% won her first title in forever. It took Miss Drama Queen to hand it to her, but whatever.
