Happy Hump Day you Robin Meade-sters! I’ve prepared some breakfast sports for ya!
Serena Williams couldn't contain her emotions after winning her first match at Wimbledon following one of the roughest years of her tennis career... if not her life. The four-time Wimbledon champ said she never thought she'd be back on the court after battling serious health issues over the last 12 months, including a blood clot in her lungs. Serena's tears started after the win and continued on into the post-match press conference.
How is Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade drowning his sorrows over losing the NBA Finals? By having the best seat in the house at the Versace Fashion Show in Milan, Italy. Wade, who may be the biggest fashionista in the NBA, hit up the fashion show just hours after landing in Milan, joining his buddy New York Knick Carmelo Anthony in their own versions of court side seats.
The Harlem Globetrotters have signed a 12-year-old to play for their team 10 years from now... Jordan McCabe might be just a 6th grader, but he’s already being called a hoops phenom with crazy ball-handling skills... In what seems to be a tongue-in-cheek move, the Globetrotters came up with the "future discovery clause" so that McCabe will play for them next decade after he graduates for college.
30,000 Rangers fans can now say: I wear my sunglasses at night. Last might, baseball fans in Texas set the world record for "most people wearing sunglasses in the dark." After the 6th inning, the Rangers crowd put on their shades, wore them for 10 minutes and made it into the record books. Somewhere... Corey Hart felt a disturbance in The Force.
The weekend is just around the corner!!
