Watch Wimbledon live online – until July 8

For tennis fans, there’s little that could beat the excitement of Wimbledon. It’s the world’s oldest tennis tournament, a chance to see the world’s best players compete. This year’s Wimbledon tournament started Monday and continues until July 8.

Of course, since it’s taking place in the U.K., chances are that you’re either at the breakfast table or in the office when players like Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova compete. But no worries: There are multiple options to watch the tournament online and on your mobile device.

Wimbledon.com is streaming up to five hours of live programming a day on its website and on Livestream.com/wimbledon starting every day at 7 a.m. ET. The stream will include “key matches, player interviews, press conferences, score updates, “off-court” reports and behind-the-scenes access,” according to a press release sent out this week.

Debbie Beacham a pioneer in womens surfing

Last week I attended the induction ceremony for the Surfing Walk of Fame where Debbie Beacham was honored. She seemed shy as she walked onto the stage making the comment that PT forced her to write a speech. What came out was fascinating.

I grabbed two minutes of it on my iPhone. The sound is great but the shot is too distant to get a good shot of Debbie.

Debbie is a true unsung hero of womens sports and womens surfing. After retiring from competition she plunged into the hard backroom world to make it a viable profession.

For several decades she repp’ed womens surfing by putting on events, organizing tours, getting sponsor money, producing movies for girls, and more. Now she is the Vice-President of the International Surfing Association (ISA), the official governing body of surfing.

I am a big fan of womens surfing and it’s great to see heroines like her in person.
