Looking forward to ‪#‎Tokyo2020‬, and host country ‪#‎Japan‬‘s hope for an important medal, is there time to make ‪#‎PokemonGO‬ an ‪#‎Olympic‬ sport?

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo after Team USA won another gold that “Basketball is the No. 2 sport in the world, [but] we just need to see these other countries get their acts together and become more competitive.”
And the rest of the world is thinking, “Back to you on soccer.”

‪#‎Speedo‬ has dropped their sponsorship of ‪#‎RyanLochte‬. How long until ‪#‎SummersEve‬ sues him for giving douches a bad name?

The Nationals have put Stephen Strasburg on the DL again. So this is what Washington was saving him for when they shut him down late in the 2012 season? Once again, the 2012 ‪#‎SFGiants‬ say “Thank you.”

 

European fashion change Zara is facing a class-action lawsuit for alleged “fraudulent” pricing by tagging clothes at Zara USA in Euros, and then selling them at a price well over the actual exchange rate.

The Canadian Coast Guard said on Sunday they had to rescue about 1,500 Americans taking part in the “Port Huron Float Down” on the St. Clair River between Michigan and Ontario. This after a rain and wind storm sent them illegally into Canadian territory.

Waiting for Justin Trudeau to propose Canada’s own wall.

Donald Trump. who’s called for a “special deportation force” met with Hispanic leaders over the weekend and reportedly spoke of dealing “humanely” with undocumented immigrants already in the country, especially families. Though today he said “I’m not flip-flopping. We want to come up with a really fair, but firm answer.”
So what, we deport them but everyone gets an aisle seat with free in-flight meals?
