Kelly & Michael: World Cup
It was a huge sports weekend, which is what Michael Strahan spent most of his weekend doing. He watched the World Cup. Germany beat Argentina. Michael said that other sports are different and exciting, but soccer is just waiting for 90 minutes until somebody finally scores. He said there was a great goal though. It was like break dancing. The guy that scored was actually a sub.
Kelly Ripa didn’t watch it though, because her parents don’t have those channels. They don’t see their show either. Both of their parents both have old fashioned homes. Kelly’s parents’ HD went out, and her mom said they were going to return the internet because it’s not working. Kelly said that searching for passwords and things was like being on an archaeological dig.
Kelly & Michael: LeBron James Free Agency
Michael brought up the basketball free agency. LeBron James went back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Michael said the only thing he could have done was gone back to Miami or Cleveland. Another team wouldn’t have been good for him, but he wrote a really great letter. Michael said it was good that he went back to Cleveland because he feels a responsibility for the community there, which people don’t usually feel.
Carmelo Anthony is also going back to the Knicks in New York. They needed him. They’re in trouble salary cap wise until 2015, but his money is good. Michael said he’s been practicing every night for the money. Kelly said they were showing everybody in Cleveland burning James’ jersey after his decision to go to Miami on the news and then everyone in Miami burning his jersey when he decided to go back.
There were also a lot of memes of people looking for their jerseys when he decided to come back. It was a really hard decision and a lot goes into it. He has two sons and his wife is pregnant with a daughter. Kelly said that if she had to make a decision that would anger that many people she would just say, “It was about the school system.” They should just blame the kids. They have a home in Ohio though. He goes back every year and still considers it his home.
Summer Sizzle Travel Trivia: Michael Douglas
The Summer Sizzle Trivia dancer was Kacie Montague from Easton, Pennsylvania. Kelly loved her belly piercing. Ann Bullis from Las Vegas, Nevada was the contestant. She was so excited to talk to them. Her picture was of her doing circus things, which was awesome. Kelly & Michael said that they’ve done it. Kelly said that Gelman does it semi professionally. Bullis is a college professor and teaches psychology and sociology. Kelly said she could have used her this weekend. She’s getting married in October in Hawaii. She played for the Turtle Bay Resort in Hawaii, so they can extend their trip! It was her dream to go there. It’s valued at $6,900. Kelly & Michael really wanted her to win. The question was:
She got it right! It was the Dead Sea. Kelly asked if she was going to throw the wedding while she was there or extend the honeymoon. She’s going to extend the honeymoon. Kelly said that Gelman said it’s good she’s a professor because she has time off, but it’s in October, but she said she just happens to be taking a sabbatical. It just kept getting better. Kelly said she wanted to take one too. She picked number 104 to get a $500 gift certificate to Omaha Steaks.
