No matter where you read about the events Harry participated in leading up to the Invictus Games, Harry's personality shines through. It was typical Harry mode interacting with the two children and of course, should he be meeting someone that just happens to be in a wheelchair, Harry instictively gets down to their level. I think this is what impresses me the most about Harry. His instinctive knowing just the right thing to do to make others feel comfortable.

Of course, the best pictures of all are at the Fail. They never disappoint when it comes to their photography. Just wish their reporting was at a higher level of integrity.

Toronto, along with the rest of the southern part of the province, is currently under a heat warning for the next two days, with maximum humidex values forecast to approach 40 on both Saturday and Sunday. I feel for the athletics and wheelchair tennis athletes who'll be competing in that on Sunday. I'm assuming the cars in the JLR driving challenge will have AC.

I also note that they were forced to move the cycling to its backup site at High Park from the Islands.

It does seem like Mother Nature is throwing her own challenges at the competitors over the weekend with unusually high heat for this time of year.

I'm sure that they'll take everything into consideration and make sure that the athletes keep hydrated and watch for over exertion and sunstroke. I don't think though that *anything* could really damper these athletes spirit now as the opening ceremony is so close at hand.

Downloaded the ESPN App to watch the opening ceremony at 7pm. You can watch the games on the app too.

I love Harry. He’s so comfortable and affable. How funny for that guy to wake up to Harry’s face!

A very nice move and as there were no press close to him, that sort of deflates the cynics argument that "it was probably only for the cameras".

The waking the sleeping guy was hilarious. Would have been quite the shock to wake up to Prince Harry's face

Again seeing what love about Harry. He is so good with people. I love watching his tours (his dad's too).

Everyone all set to watch the opening ceremonies? Going to have snacks and drinks all set and ready and watch it on my monitor here. If you're looking for a place to view it online, I'll be watching it on CTV.

I see the DM has described it as Melania's first solo overseas visit.

And here I had no idea that Toronto was overseas; I thought it was on the same continent as the US! I'd better brush up on geography.

Well... we know how the Fail loves to exaggerate. Perhaps getting to Toronto, Melania had to fly over the Great Lakes. With exaggeration, the Fail could have made those lakes be seas. Hence overseas.

If the Fail truly means that Canada is overseas from the US, then I spent a lot of my young adulthood going overseas (or would it be underseas) from Detroit through the tunnel over to Windsor, Ontario.
