Is it just me or do they start the Olympics before the opening ceremony every year? I don’t think I have ever noticed it before?
Nice political gaff by the National Olympic Committee yesterday by putting the South Korean flag up when introducing the North Korean women’s soccer team. The team walked off the field and delayed the start for about an hour. Medal Count: 0 Hasty Apologies: 1
With the Phillies signing of Cole Hamels for 6 years/ $144m, I think the Phils are going to move Cliff Lee to a playoff contender (Rangers or Dodgers) and not lose him to free agency in the offseason.
The business of boxing just got a big boost by 50 Cent taking over as Floyd Mayweather’s promoter. 50 Cent already has a promoter’s license in New York, has applied for one in Nevada. He will be joining TMT Promotions and will bring on more boxers to Mayweather’s group. This move is a hit to Golden Boy Promotions, who have promoted Mayweather in the past. Will this move help get the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight? I hope so.
