4. Aly Raisman stands up for principles in floor routine
"I can only imagine how painful it must be for the families and close personal friends of the victims."
But by refusing to hit the pause button for a measly 60 seconds, Rogge and other organizers have committed a sin nearly as grave as denying there was ever a Holocaust.
Were it not for young Aly and her wedding dance/bat mitzvah accompaniment, the Munich dead may have never gotten their due.
"I am Jewish, that's why I wanted that floor music,'' Raisman said
You go girl!
5. Gail Huff is everywhere
The only person driving to more parts of the Commonwealth over the past week than Scott Brown is his wife, Gail Huff Brown. She's seemingly everywhere. Including the Commonwealth's greatest city, Lowell. For as you know Boston may be the "Hub of the Universe", but Lowell is its center (ask any Lowellian they'll tell you).
Brown is locked in a tight race with consumer advocate and Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat. The Senate campaign is already the most expensive in Massachusetts history.
After Huff left Lowell, she was scheduled to meet with former state Rep. Geoff Hall, a Westford Democrat, at Kimball Farm in Westford. Hall, who served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1991 to 2009, endorsed Brown in May.
While in Lowell, Huff was accompanied by state Rep. David Nangle, also a Democrat. Nangle has not endorsed a candidate in the Senate race, but said he agreed to show Huff around the city as a personal favor to Brown, who he served with in the House during the late 1990s.
