Five Spot /Quick hitters on the light side

1. ROYAL VISIT

Queen Elizabeth (above) made her first appearance in Wimbledon in 33 years on Thursday. She had such a good time at the sporting event that she now plans to attend Ultimate Fighting Championship 113 in Las Vegas on July 3.

2. A FINE LINE

Many Americans who are new to soccer have had trouble figuring out what the offside rule is during the World Cup. But that's all right -- some of the officials there don't seem to know what it is either.

3. FIRING LINE

President Obama couldn't watch the U.S.-Algeria soccer game Wednesday, as he was busy accepting the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Just to keep in practice, he later accepted the resignations of the soccer coaches from France and Italy.

4. HE'S BACK

Brett Favre came out of hibernation in Mississippi on Thursday and saw his shadow. You know what that means: six more weeks of stories about whether he's retiring.

5. HAIL TO THE CHIEF

Bill Clinton attended the U.S. win over Algeria at the World Cup. One young fan was so excited to see the former president, she asked him to sign her vuvuzela.
