‘Time’ 100 Reader Poll Shows Rain is Tops

This week, Time magazine revealed its choices for the 100 most influential people in the world, which was really only as interesting as these countdowns tend to be. The usual suspects (politicians like Germany’s Angela Merkel, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, cultural icons like Justin Bieber and the royals Prince William and Kate Middleton) were on the list along with a couple of curve balls thrown in to make you go hmm… (tennis star Kim Clijsters and actress Mia Wasikowska).

Clijsters Saw Green at the Australian Open

With smarts, muscle, and technique, Kim Clijsters walked away from this year’s Australian Open with the title and $2.2 million.

She was also seeing green with her snazzy Fila tennis outfit, which she wore to pay homage to another Grand Slam-winning mom, Evonne Goolagong-Cawley. Fila is celebrating its centennial anniversary, and this is the first collection of the year to commemorate the occasion.

On the men’s side, Novak Djokovic was the Open winner. Congrats to both. Now all those bleary-eyed tennis fans who were up until the wee hours to catch all the action from down under can go to bed at a decent hour.
