“Stolen” baseballs

At a recent Rangers game, a couple was caught on film denying a game ball to a crying toddler, and they have been put through the social media ringer over it since then. Here’s the video…

I think the announcer was being a little harsh, myself. It didn’t look like they were “rubbing it in” – though they certainly were oblivious. In fact, they’ve copped to not noticing the crying kid in their excitement. . . . → Read More: “Stolen” baseballs

Philadelphia: City of Brotherly Tasering

I absolutely LOVE this story.

On Monday night, a fan at a Phillies game ran onto the field during the game. Not an unheard of event. This is the first time for this outcome, however…

The fan, wearing a baseball cap, red T-shirt and khaki shorts, hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser . . . → Read More: Philadelphia: City of Brotherly Tasering

First up, Doctor Who’s second special of 2009 aired on Easter:

U.S.S. Mariner » Bugs Bunny, greatest banned player ever This just blew me away.

First of all, if you’ve never seen the referenced cartoon, you’re missing one of the greatest of all time. Go rent the DVD.

The author spends a long article in a dead-pan analysis of the entire cartoon as if it were a real baseball game played in 1946, rationalizing the toon’s gags and attempting to apply real physics. The level . . . → Read More: First base: Bugs Bunny; Second Base: Bugs Bunny…
