  2. Somewhat off topic, but today's Washington Post has an article about best ballparks: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp/2017/07/11/how-thomas-boswell-ranked-all-30-mlb-ballparks-and-grouped-them-in-four-tiers/?utm_term=.235d1ad77309#comments 18. Cincinnati. People say it was built on the cheap. They say it looks like the circus came to town with pinwheels and riverboat restaurants above the outfield. They say the Ohio River beyond right field is brown. They say it’s an uphill walk back to downtown. They say … oh, gimme a break. I like it. It’s an enthusiastic homer-happy little park that feels open — to the sky, weather, views of the (muddy) river.
  3. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/national-international/Donald-Trump-Jr-Release-Emails-Russian-Lawyer-433852983.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_DCBrand President Donald Trump's eldest son has released an email chain that he says led to a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June, during the presidential campaign. In the emails, Donald Trump Jr. is told that the lawyer has been given incriminating information on Hillary Clinton supplied to a billionaire linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin by a Russian prosecutor. He is told that a "Russian government attorney" was arriving in New York City from Moscow to meet. The revelations about the meeting, which took place in Trump Tower and was attended by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, have fueled new questions about the Trump campaign's possible ties to Moscow, which are being scrutinized by federal and congressional investigators. In one email, Donald Trump Jr. is told: "The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras (Agalarov) this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - helped by Aras and Emin" Agalarov, Aras' son.
  4. Binge watched "13 Reasons Why" over the last two Sunday's. I am glad social media wasn't around when I was in high school, but I think most of the situations that were portrayed seemed realistic. There are a lot of time jumps and I am convinced Netflix has a problem about getting a show going at the beginning (this was the issue I had w/Stranger Things but the kids acted really good) and not at the end. The way this show is set up, it is one episode per character, but it doesn't go as deep as it should have till the last 3 episodes.
  5. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/06/26/professor-fired-after-defending-blacks-only-event-on-fox-news-i-was-publicly-lynched-she-says/?utm_term=.4fe992fdf117 Earlier this month, political commentator Lisa Durden gave a fiery interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, defending a Black Lives Matter chapter’s decision to host a Memorial Day event exclusively for black people. “Boo-hoo-hoo,” Lisa Durden, who is also an adjunct professor at Essex County College in Newark, said in the June 6 television appearance. “You white people are angry because you couldn’t use your ‘white privilege’ card to get invited to the Black Lives Matter’s all-black Memorial Day celebration.” In the heated exchange, Carlson responded by calling her “hostile and separatist and crazy.” “You’re demented actually,” he said. “You’re sick and what you’re saying is disgusting and if you were a Nazi I would say the same thing to you.” Durden’s remarks spurred both criticism and praise on social media. But what happened less than 48 hours later prompted an even stronger reaction. On June 8, with about a week left of her summer session of teaching, Durden’s employers at Essex County College suspended her. About two weeks later, Durden was fired from the community college. The college’s president announced the decision in a lengthy statement Friday, days after Durden met with school officials in a community forum. Anthony E. Munroe, Essex County College President, said the administration was “immediately inundated with feedback from students, faculty and prospective students and their families expressing frustration, concern and even fear that the views expressed by a College employee (with influence over students) would negatively impact their experience on the campus.”

  7. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2017/06/reds-activate-brandon-finnegan-move-bronson-arroyo-to-60-day-dl.html The Reds announced Monday that they’ve activated lefty Brandon Finnegan from the 60-day DL and cleared a spot on the 40-man by transferring veteran right-hander Bronson Arroyo from the 10-day DL to the 60-day DL. Righty Lisalverto Bonilla was optioned to Triple-A Louisville to clear a spot on the active roster. Finnegan, 24, has been out since April 15 with a shoulder injury and has made just three starts for Cincinnati this season. The absence of Finnegan and right-hander Anthony DeSclafani, who entered the year as the Reds’ top two starters, has been a massive factor in the team’s MLB-worst 6.19 rotation ERA.
  8. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-han-solo-movie-firing-new-details-behind-phil-lord-chris-miller-exit-1016619?utm_source=twitter Meanwhile, Lord and Miller, the exceptionally successful team behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, were chafing, too, according to a source close to them. There were "deep fundamental philosophical differences" in filmmaking styles, this person says, and the directors felt they were being given "zero creative freedom." They also felt they were being asked to operate under "extreme scheduling constraints" and "were never given enough days for each scene from the very beginning." Shortly after the shoot in the Millennium Falcon, on June 20, the world learned that Kennedy — with the backing of Disney studio chief Alan Horn — had taken the extraordinary step of firing Lord and Miller. Obviously, Kennedy knew this would set off a storm of publicity that no one wants or needs in any movie — especially one in the Star Wars universe, where every move is closely watched by a gigantic audience with a sense of ownership. It's rare and undesirable enough to fire any director. Firing established players like Lord and Miller, who have a fan base ready to give them the benefit of any doubt? That shocked Hollywood's most seasoned veterans.
  9. http://www.ew.com/article/2016/12/17/star-wars-release-dates Untitled Han Solo Anthology Film Directors: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller Written by: Lawrence and Jon Kasdan Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke Logline: “How young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.” Lawrence Kasdan has said, “you have to imagine [Solo] 10 years earlier [than in the first film] in his early 20s. What was he like before he hardened up? Before he had some setbacks? Before he put on this cynical coat? What got him there?” Release: May 25, 2018
  10. Apparently, today it was. Jamie and I were there. You can thank him for the win.
  11. Welcome to DC boys.
  12. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/06/14/virginia-gop-baseball-practice-shooting-multiple-people-shot.html House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and aides were shot at a baseball practice in Virginia Wednesday, Fox News confirmed. The shots were reported on East Monroe Street in Del Ray, Alexandria police said on Twitter at 7:30 a.m. The location was near a YMCA.
  13. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/14/business/media/fox-news-fair-and-balanced.html?_r=0 Fox News is “Fair and Balanced” no more. In the latest sign of change at the cable news network, the “Fair and Balanced” motto that has long been a rallying cry for Fox News fans — and a finger in the eye of critics — is gone. The channel confirmed on Wednesday that slogan and network have parted ways. “The shift has nothing to do with programming or editorial decisions,” the network said in a statement. Instead, the slogan was dropped in part because of its close association with Roger Ailes, a network founder, former chairman and the originator of the phrase, who was fired in August in a sexual harassment scandal. The network said that “Fair and Balanced” was shelved as a marketing tool after Mr. Ailes’s departure. In its place is a new motto: “Most Watched, Most Trusted.”
  14. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/dc-and-maryland-to-sue-president-trump-alleging-breach-of-constitutional-oath/ar-BBCx55U?OCID=ansmsnnews11 Attorneys general for the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland say they will sue President Trump on Monday, alleging that he has violated anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution by accepting millions in payments and benefits from foreign governments since moving into the White House. The lawsuit, the first of its kind brought by government entities, centers on the fact that Trump chose to retain ownership of his company when he became president. Trump said in January that he was shifting his business assets into a trust managed by his sons to eliminate potential conflicts of interests. But D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine (D) and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D) say Trump has broken many promises to keep separate his public duties and private business interests. For one, his son Eric Trump has said the president would continue to receive regular updates about his company’s financial health. The lawsuit, a signed copy of which Racine and Frosh provided to The Washington Post on Sunday night, alleges “unprecedented constitutional violations” by Trump. The suit says Trump’s continued ownership of a global business empire has rendered the president “deeply enmeshed with a legion of foreign and domestic government actors” and has undermined the integrity of the U.S. political system. “Fundamental to a President’s fidelity to [faithfully execute his oath of office] is the Constitution’s demand that the President ... disentangle his private finances from those of domestic and foreign powers. Never before has a President acted with such disregard for this constitutional prescription.”
  15. The trailer drops.
  16. The ratings reflected your thinking. Sometimes, TV executives need to realize when a show is done, it's done.
  17. Show got cancelled: http://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/856269-fox-cancels-24-legacy

  20. We have a title: http://www.syfy.com/sharknado5/blog/sharknado5-official-title Thanks to the fans who participated in our Facebook Sharknado naming smorgasbord we have a hot new title for the latest installment of the Sharknado. Sharknado 5: Global Swarming and the film’s official tagline, “Make America Bait Again!,” are the result of Facebook users who submitted their most creative and outrageous ideas via an interactive bot. Sharknado 1 introduced us to the outrageous world of Sharknado, with vicious sharks that attacked in swarms concentrated within tornadoes. Sharknado 2 took the party to NYC. Sharknado 3 went to space. Sharknado 4 introduced a game-changer to the Sharnado world, Nados made of fire, oil, and even cows. Sharknado 5 is an international affair. Here's the lowdown.
  21. http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/sharknado-5-syfy-tara-reid-ian-ziering-1201976519/ “Sharknado 5” is happening, and Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are all set to reprise their roles. Syfy and studio The Asylum have given an official greenlight to the fifth installment of the “Sharknado” series. The original 2013 “Sharknado” introduced the concept of a shark-laden twister via one bearing down on Los Angeles. In “Sharknado 2: The Second One,” New York City was the target of the disaster, and in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” a mega-sharknado made its way down the East Coast from Washington, D.C. to Florida. In the most recent installment, the very-close-to-copyright-infringement-titled “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” the shark-infested storms went national. The film ended with the Eiffel Tower ripping away from Paris and crashing down on Niagara Falls, setting the stage for the fifth edition of America’s answer to the sprawling sagas of the ancient world.
  22. SNL ran an old episode on May 20th that had Soundgarden as the musical guest before the normal broadcast.
  23. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/18737245/mlb-union-agree-get-rid-traditional-intentional-walkwill-use-signal-dugout As part of its initiative to improve pace-of-game play, Major League Baseball has approved a change to the intentional walk rule, going from the traditional four-pitch walk to a dugout signal, team and union sources told ESPN's Howard Bryant. MLB has studied various ways to quicken games. ESPN's Jayson Stark reported earlier this month that MLB had made formal proposals to the players' union to usher in both raising the strike zone and scrapping the practice of lobbing four balls toward home plate to issue an intentional walk.
