What In The Heck Is A Person-On-Person Robbery?

I have to ask because Googling isn’t helpful and because the blurb that goes with the headline just sounds like any other robbery to me. The girls that got arrested for it weren’t even charged with some exotic flavour of robbery. It just says robbery. I’m guessing this is either another example of that annoying …

Play Ball! Keep Playing! Faster! Move It! Go!

I talked a little bit about the length of playoff baseball games this morning, and now here comes the Score to basically prove me right. I think they get a little too hung up on the amount of foul balls vs. balls in play, (watching a pitcher and hitter get into a battle of skills …

Yankees And Tigers On The Radio…In 1934

This is something else. A complete radio broadcast of the September 20th, 1934 game between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.

This video showed up in my Youtube suggestions a month ago. When I saw it, I thought “Ha ha ha aww cute. A relic from last year!” Actually…not so much. We have a hell of a lot of stuck shipping containers, factory staff shortages and chip shortages. Apparently we’d better get creative and start shopping …

We’re Old Enough To Vote. Woe

I could hardly believe it when it hit me, but today this place turns 18 years old. Seriously, what the hell? Where did all that time go? I’ll spare you all the stuff about how much the world has changed since we started. We’ve done that before and I’m sure we’ll do it again. I’ll …
