Oprah Sydney Show Starts Filming

Oprah Sydney Show Starts Filming - Oprah has started a big day of filming her talk show at the Sydney Opera House by remarking on the big welcome she has received from Australians.

The television queen joked about the adoration and adulation she had received, which she said had been like nothing else in her 25-year career.

She sighted visting Uluru, Hamilton Island, the Great Barrier Reef and watching a giant 'O' being illuminated on the Harbour Bridge in her honour as the highlights of her trip.

The northern end of Sydney’s Macquarie Street is at a virtual standstill as thousands of people queue to see Winfrey film her two Australian shows today.

Those who managed to get hold of the hottest ticket in town - allocated through a hugely oversubscribed ballot - began waiting to get into the cordoned off Opera House at first light.

Several people without tickets even slept out overnight at Circular Quay in the hope of securing a distant glimpse of Oprah and the galaxy of stars due to perform at the shows.

"We’ve come all the way from Perth to see her," said ticket holder Kylie McGrath.

"Somehow we managed to get a ticket through the ballot, so the minute we won I said to my husband, 'Book the flights'!"

A small number of standby tickets are also being made available, though show producers have warned those waiting in line for the last-minute allocations that they will be issued depending on space.

Plenty of those waiting are clutching banners or wearing T-shirts professing their love for Oprah.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
