Artist’s rendition of what Rice did to our servers Well it only took 96ish hours and a few server migrations (note, one server migration is a serious pain in the balls, we did 2) but the site is finally back and it’s better than ever! Seriously! Just look at it, it’s awesome! Unfortunately you missed a lot during our brief lay off…so let’s cover some bases. The Cubs hired stat nerd Tom Tango - And I love the hire. Tom Tango wrote THE BOOK on playing percentages in baseball. I mean that literally, the book is called THE BOOK: Playing the percentages in baseball. He was the guy that introduced the world to wOBA, among many other things. I heart Tom Tango. Mark Grace done got arrested and is getting off light - Yes, everyone’s favorite 1B got his second DUI recently and is going to jail for four months. I had jokes ready for this story, but honestly DUI’s aren’t that funny and he could have done some serious harm. Hopefully jail time serves as a wake up call for Grace. DUI’s are unacceptable. Carlos Marmol is being accused of Domestic Abuse against a 24 year old woman - We don’t have all the details for this, so we’ll wait to make any judgement. I seriously hope the accusations aren’t true, but I have a low tolerance for men domestically abusing women. Rooftop owners have lost their collective minds - I like standing with the little guy against The Man, but this battle is pretty much shaking out to be The Man vs. The Smaller The Man. The Rooftop association is just nuts man. The Superbowl was played  – And stuff. The Ravens won. That was cool, right guys? There were approximately 1,960,000 births world-wide since the site crashed - Way to go Rice, that’s 1,960,000 new visitors that we missed out on. Feels good to be back, kids. Real good.
