THE WORLD CUP KICKS OFF TODAY, AND it’s election day in Ontario. I don’t know who to root for OR to vote for. I may vote for Brazil, and give all the political candidates a yellow card. I’m not sure.
Over a billion people are expected to watch the opening … The song and dance part starts at 2:15 ET, with Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull headlining… The 25-minute ceremony will feature more than 600 artists, including acrobatic gymnasts, trampolinists, and stilt walkers, who, let’s face it, have to grab what work they can…
The opening match is between Brazil and Croatia. We know a lot about Brazil, but to even the playing field, know that Croatia is the birthplace of Nicola Tesla, the inventor of wireless technology, and Marco Polo, the inventor of swimming pool tag.
Closer to home, there’s some excitement on the streets of Toronto: not only is Adam Sandler in town shooting a movie, but so is Peter Dinklage, arguably the hottest star on the planet, especially now as Game of Thrones has its season ender this Saturday, and the fate of his character Tyrion Lannister hangs in the balance. (By the way, if you see PDinks out and about, try to be cool. No pointing, no staring. No selfies. Just be cool).
Be cool like Bill Murray, who is making a habit of showing up at people’s matrimonial events. He crashed a bachelor party in his native Charleston couple weeks ago and gave a speech.
Then, recently , he turned up while a couple was geeting their engagement photo taken and agreed to pose with them. It’s cool until he show up one someone’s honeymoon.
