Intro for August 10, 2012
How can it be the end of the Games already? To borrow from the love of my life, Mariah Carey, next week is going to be bleak. Still...before withdrawal, there is the weekend.
Today’s Olympic faces are the first ladies of boxing!
Claressa Shields from Flint, Michigan, if ever there was a town that needed a win.
Nicola Adams who was rejected by so many sponsors and made them sorry in front of a home crowd.
Katie Taylor, Ireland’s Olympic champion - Jesus, Mary, and Joseph that was an intense bout, and afterwards, even through the tv, hearing that crowd, I felt a little Irish...is that ok?
So. Will this be a Brange wedding weekend? More on this later.
Enjoy the final days of the Games and the Closing Ceremony - I’ll be tweeting!
Yours in gossip,
