Who let the bees out?
Did you happen to catch the Mariners game yesterday? No? I can’t blame you. I’m sure you’re one of the many who passed on Sunday’s game. But…here’s what you missed…
There was an…interesting…delay during the game.
The two clubs sat through a 23-minute delay as bees invaded Angel Stadium.
Here’s the video:
“That was weird. Obviously, it didn’t bother Felix. He didn’t crack. Kole [Calhoun] was freaking out. There was a softball-sized bee colony on the ground. It was amazing. I’ve never seen that before. That dude just came out of the stands, ‘It’s OK, I’m a beekeeper.’ It was like a Seinfeld episode,” said Angels starter C.J. Wilson.

Though it was in condensed form Felix was his normal self and the Mariners beat the Angels on a rare righty home run from Justin Smoak.
No one's quite sure why the Mariners haven't shut Felix Hernandez down. The sense though was that it was about pride as Felix would like to finish stronger than he'd looked recently and the 200 innings pitched plateau was an important...
A swarm of bees invaded Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., on Sunday, causing two delays during the Angels' 3-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners.

The BEES-ball game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners was interrupted for 23 minutes due to swarming bees.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The bees swarmed the field in the third inning, moving to the outfield walls while players and fans scattered before them. They stuck around for a couple of innings before a fan volunteer and a fire extinguisher persuaded them to buzz off.
They missed the finish of a gritty victory by the Seattle Mariners and a streak-snapping loss for C.J. Wilson.
In the third inning of the Mariners-Angels game Sunday, Felix Hernandez wanted no piece of standing on the mound. It had nothing to do with Mike Trout or wanting to spend the day at the beach. It was a swarm of bees that had gathered on the field.

all thought about what we would do if we won the lottery. Buy a house. Pay off
some bills. Take a vacation for a month or two. A new car. New clothes. New
toys. The list goes on and on.
Where did charity fit into that
list? Be honest: how many of you have thought about making difference...
