Following in the footsteps of Rivera, the 14-year-old Little League superstar became the latest pop culture phenomenon to be invited to join the Harlem Globetrotters. But, unlike...

Wisdom and Links: What I Did On My Unplanned Vacation

Well, I’m back. Miss me? I mean, it’s been awhile. Haven’t had one of these since before the draft. You know, issues with my computer, Shawn had issues with his computer, stuff like that. So, uhh…what’d I miss? The Draft Happened Yeah, I mentioned that already. And, remember those people with interesting, awesome or unfortunate names? A lot of them got drafted! Kyle Funkhouser...

Keith Hernandez is Still Getting Seinfeld Money

Keith Hernandez had no aspirations of becoming an actor when he was approached to appear on a February 1992 episode of “Seinfeld”. The former National League MVP had never heard of the show and he did it, naturally, for the money. “I had no idea what it was about or anything,” the current New York Mets broadcaster said in a 2007 interview. “But he said, ‘They’ll fly...

Barack Obama Meets the Nationals Racing Presidents

Barack Obama has only tweeted 31 times, which, if you’re counting, is about 31 tweets too many or a gajillion-and-a-half tweets too few depending on which side of the proverbial aisle you reside. Suffice it to say, when the President DOES tweet…he makes them count. I challenged them to a race. pic.twitter.com/FpEUTnYgoD — President Obama (@POTUS) June 12, 2015 Thursday,...

Marlins Man and Rudy Giuliani Enjoy a Game

I think I’m finally getting to the point where I can’t tell if this is one of the coolest things out there or, well…the complete opposite of cool. Ever since Laurence Leavy (aka “Marlins Man”) infiltrated our television screens during last year’s World Series, he’s, seemingly, made it his point to soak up every millisecond of his fifteen minutes of fame. From NBA games...

Talkin’ Baseball with Ben Ancheff

When Ben Ancheff took the mound during the NAIA World Series last Friday…Twitter broke.  But it wasn’t because of the St. Thomas University pitcher’s blazing fastball or his penchant for striking out opponents, it was because of his size. Whoever says “Pitchers aren’t athletes” obviously haven’t seen St. Thomas’ Ben Ancheff in NAIA WS. @SportsCenter pic.twitter...

Post-apocalyptic Fenway Park Featured in Video Game

Wednesday, the popular video game “Fallout” released the trailer for its fourth installment, cleverly titled “Fallout 4″. Now, I don’t know anything about video games, but I’m a sucker for those that take place in the “real world”…and that’s why this thing appealed to me.  From the USS Constitution to the Massachusetts State House to, even, a statue of Paul Revere…all...
