GLASGOW, Scotland -- The Commonwealth Games are a lot of things to a lot of people, pro and con, but to this typist they are The Home of the Human Interest Story.

Stuff happens at the Friendly Games that doesn't seem to happen at other Games. Like Queen Elizabeth photobombing a selfie picture the other day.

Tuesday was hump day at the 20th edition of the Games – Day 6 of 11 – and the Sun Media human interest story idea file was already overflowing.

First of all is the discovery that cyclist Zach Bell of North Vancouver, B.C., a two-time Olympian and 2010 bronze medal winner at the Commonwealth Games, and wrestler Brittanee Laverdure of Calgary are former high school classmates from Watson Lake, Yukon.
