Andy Murray Puts On His Game Face As He Prepares For Quarterfinals At Wimbledon!

Filed under: AnglophiliaZportzTennis

andy murray practices for next round at wimbledon

Andy Murray is Great Britain's last chance to make sure the Wimbledon trophy stays at home, and from the looks of it, he's DEFINITELY up for the challenge!

The british tennis player was spotted preparing for his quarterfinal matchup against Fernando Verdasco, and he must be pretty confident because he even took a break from his drills to practice his victory reaction!!

Ok, so we're pretty sure that this is actually just some sort of stretch that works muscles we've never heard of before, but Andy has plenty of reasons to be confident!

Since Roger Federer has been eliminated and Rafael Nadal is off sulking on a boat somewhere, he has a pretty clear path to the finals!

Andy has never won at Wimbledon before, but at last year's tournament he made it all the way to the finals, and just a few weeks later he took home the Gold Medal at the 2012 Olympics on the very same court!!

Could this be the year he finally takes it all home?? We'll just have to wait and see!

The only silver lining to Hurricane Sandy's destructive path is watching resilient Americans band together in the wake of unimaginable tragedy.

After Matt Lauer's recent bungling of Olympic coverage and everything Ann Curry, it's good to see him do right by his fans in the Big Apple!

NBCUniversal and its family of networks will broadcast a live benefit concert tonight from 30 Rockafeller Plaza and we hear it was Matt's idea!

Are Pissed Off TODAY Show Staffers Forcing Matt Lauer To Take A 'Long Vacation'?!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzTwitter

nbc-today-team-low-morale-tired-of-matt-lauers-shenanigans

Morale is low behind the scenes of TODAY and we certainly understand why!

This is the network that botched their exclusive coverage of the Olympics to an extent that #NBCfail was trending on Twitter!

But besides that, their once tremendously popular morning show, TODAY, is under a lot of scrutiny and slipping in ratings Good Morning America!

Mostly, though, the crew seems tired of Matt Lauer.

They know now it was a mistake to replace Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie and they feel like machiavellian Matt is the man responsible.

One source close to the situation reveals:

There's more to the United Kingdom than the 2012 London Olympics and mad cow disease!!

Lily Allen Rose Cooper, for instance!

And the Edinburgh Fringe Fest!!

Fringe Fest is supposedly the world's largest arts festival with over 22,000 performers who will put on all sorts of wonderful shows over the next three weeks!

And by performers, we aren't just talking about fire breathing and donkey shows!

Comedians, for one! Big names like

Check Out Emeli Sandé's Gorgeous Rendition Of Abide With Me That NBC DIDN'T Want You To Hear!

While the rest of the world may have been treated to Emeli Sandé performing the hymn Abide With Me with a troupe of dancers at the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, all in tribute to the 52 people who died in the London bus and train bombing attacks on July 7, 2005, NBC callously decided to opt out of airing that segment, and instead ran a Ryan Seacrest interview with Michael Phelps!

And although it's shameful that US audiences weren't given the opportunity to see what many have regarded as the best part of the entire ceremony, the UK songstress has released a stunning studio version of the song, backed by only a piano and performed in one take!

Give it a watch (above)!

Her voice literally sends CHILLS down our spine!

It's BEYOND gorgeous!

We bet many Americans are going to realize now just how much they missed out on by having this cut!

Such an unbelievable disappointment!
