Sharapova, of course, was not celebrating the breezy first-round victory by this woman, tennis rival and World No. 1 seed Serena Williams, who kicked off Wimbledon week with a nice scandal involving some choice words for Sharapova’s boyfriend, Dimitrov, who just happens to be Williams’ ex. Sharapova fired back, essentially calling Williams a homewrecker, thus setting up a potentially great-for-gossip Wimbledon final. Too bad Sharapova lost in the first first round (the slippery grass was a problem for her as well).

Hats, apparently, are an excellent accessory when it comes to all sorts of celebrations, including soccer matches....

...Stanley Cup finals...and the fact that one is alive. Here we have Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman (right) and Carlos Arredondo, wearing the hat, who assisted Bauman at the scene, waving the Boston Strong banner before Game 6 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks, June 24, in Boston.

Hats are also good for celebrating equality for all.
