The hype surrounding Disney On Ice: Frozen is just getting started. This week, there are three additional Frozen onsales to add to its growing list. The ice-skating show, which features characters Elsa and Anna, is expected to add a slew of new dates to the west coast for late 2015.

Their tour will hit cities such as Chicago, L.A., Atlanta, New York, and Houston.

11-Year-Old Lucy Li Gets People Talking About U.S. Open

Golf image

Golf just isn't one of those sports that tends to make headlines the way football and basketball do. But thanks to Lucy Li, the sport is suddenly interesting. The 11-year-old from Redwood Shores, CA, is only in sixth grade, but people are already calling her a golf prodigy. She's one of the youngest players to qualify for the U.S. Women's Open and will be playing Pinehurst No. 2 against some of the world's best golf players.

In short: she's pretty awesome.

World Cup 2014: A Running Diary of USA vs. Ghana

So yeah, that happened.

Saying that I'm a soccer "fan" would probably be considered a stretch. I don't really ever watch any soccer, and if it wasn't for video games, I probably wouldn't know any of the players. That is except for every four years when the World Cup rolls around. This year was no exception; I fell directly into the World Cup hype machine. I have been watching as much of this year's World Cup as I can, and last night's game between the United States and Ghana was a can't-miss event. There was so much build-up and anticipation for the game, it was finally show time. Here is a diary of my viewing experience:

Pre-Game: As Jürgen Klinsmann shakes hands with the coaching staff from Ghana, I started to feel the same jitters I feel when watching my favorite teams. I guess I do care about this game. I'm getting thirsty...

Moments Before Kick-Off: Okay, this thirst is starting to dominate my life. I can run to the kitchen real quick to drink, nothing happens in the first few minutes of the game.

0:34: As I stand in my kitchen, I hear a loud yell from the Ian Darke (ESPN play-by-play guy): "DEMPSEY!" Oh no, after waiting all this time for the game, I missed the big moment as Clint Dempsey knocks it in. That's okay though, the U.S. leads 1-0, that's all that matters.

Ghost Musical image

Over the weekend, I went to see the Broadway national tour of Ghost the Musical. It stopped in Hartford, CT, June 12 through June 15, at The Bushnell as part of the theater's annual Broadway series.

A little background about the show: Ghost the Musical is based on the 1990 film "Ghost" starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, and Tony Goldwyn. The live, musical version first opened in the UK in 2011, before transferring to Broadway in April 2012. Shortly thereafter, the show launched its national U.S. tour, which is currently scheduled through August 2014.

Both the show and the film center on Sam and Molly, a young couple who are dealt an unexpected blow when Sam dies, leaving him trapped between two worlds. When Sam realizes Molly is in danger, he refuses to move on and instead turns to a psychic in order to communicate with Molly and ask her to avenge his death.

So how did the story translate onstage? Check out my review below to find out.
