The weekend seemed like a bit of a tightrope act, particularly for Nik Wallenda, who took the high road into Canada on Friday by successfully tiptoeing across Niagara Falls. A hundred miles away, though, tragedy struck Radiohead when their massive stage collapsed an hour before the band’s Toronto concert, fatally crushing a crew member. Steadying himself through the San Fran fog last night was Webb Simpson, who edged out the field to win the 112th US Open at the Olympic Club. And newsflash: LeBron James and the Miami Heat are a very good basketball team—and are also two games away from the NBA Championship.

May all your flashes be newsworthy this week…
