Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

With eyes firmly on 2012 London Olympics, U.S. Women's Gymnastics team scores Gold at World Championships in Tokyo, beating Russia
For some American sports fans, due in part to it being held in Tokyo and the time difference -13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern time zone- the only recent news they heard about the U.S. Women's gymnastics team at the World Championships was this, perhaps the most-discussed sports Tweet of the year on the blogosphere:

Alicia Sacramone:
Best boyfriend award goes to @BQ9 for taking the red eye from Denver to be here for my surgery today...just another reason why I love him

Team members: Gabrielle "Gabby" Douglas, Sabrina Vega, Jordyn Wieber, Anna Li, Alicia Sacramone, McKayla Maroney, Alexandra Raisman & Shawn Johnson (non-traveling alternate).
