This morning I was shopping at the usual purveyors and who else was right next to me but James Beard award winning chef Suzanne Goin with camera crew. Suzanne is the executive chef/owner of Lucques and A.O.C. Some of you Top Chef fans might recognize her from Season 2 where she was a guest judge.
I walked down the way to the place where I usually buy my asparagus and then Giada DiLaurentis was standing right next to me, looking at zucchini blossoms and filming one of her shows on the Food Network. So, I might be in one of her shows for half a second. I haven't watched anything on the FN for years, so I'll never get to see it :)
Maybe I'll put up some camera phone pics later.

Oh and my piece sold, which was great.
Here's another from Kotaku:

Very, very close match, went to the 3rd round and Guri squeaked by Gaber by one point. I'm hoping Adam Wheeler from the US gets bronze since the rest of the US Greco guys are out of contention.
Hopefully the US freestyle team does much better.
Blue(Montenegro) judoka with arm triangle(choke) in place, escaping from half guard.
Blue in side mount, with arm triangle fully applied, White taps. Ippon for Blue!
I do wish that in sport judo nowadays that they did let the judokas show more ground work. There are so many opportunities for different submissions that the officials don't let develop. In the case above, Blue was trying to sweep White to expose the back and get points, but switched right away to the arm triangle.
