Nightly News, late June Edition

1. The MET will stop producing its iconic metal tabs identifying museum patrons in favor for paper tickets with detachable stickers. The reason? It costs too much to produce the colorful tabs. This change also comes with a seven-day-a-week museum schedule which no longer recognizes its previous "closed on Mondays" one. 

2. This Week in Sports, Tennis: Rafael Nadal infamously lost his first round match in this year's Wimbledon games to 135th ranked player What's-His-Name (apologies if that's rude, but I sincerely don't know his name). Roger Federer also faced a surprising upset to 116th-ranked player What's-His-Face during their second round match. 'twas a sad day in sporting, ladies and gentlemen. 

3. A&E: The BDSM version of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga "50 Shades of Grey" has acquired a director and has their sights on a summer 2014 silver screen release. So far, the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey have not yet been cast, but I was rooting for Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev. 

That's all for tonight, folks! Stay dry.
