Briefly. 

DYK: There are more than 14,000 types of mushrooms. 

Trivia #1: What is it called when a player strikes out 3 times in one game? 4 times? 5 times?

Trivia #2: What player holds the single-season record for grand slams? 

It is now apparent why the Pablo Sandoval experiment didn’t work in Boston. The Red Sox weren’t using him effectively. Last Saturday he pitched a 1-2-3 inning (three groundouts) mixing his 80+ MPH heat with a 70’s curveball for the Giants. Whoddathunk?! 

On April 29, 1930, there were 7 major league baseball games played and the average runs scored per game was more than 17! 

Down on the farm: The PawSox have been shut-out 4 times already this season. 

Think about it. Stormy Daniels is not a good porn name. 

If the Bruins lose this series, can we call it a successful season?

Playoff hockey is the best! Except, of course, when the Bruins aren’t winning… 

Why is it called a sleeve of golf balls? Even “short sleeve” is more appropriate .

Things you are not allowed to complain about. A bad round of golf. Lousy sex. Go fishing and not catching anything. Things you cancomplain about. Warm beer. A bad round of golf. Wait a minute…. 

Early season note: JD Martinez can hit. 

I can’t wait for the Patriots season to begin… just so that people will talk about Patriots football and not about everything else to do with the Patriots. 

It’s official, Amazon announced that it will hire for 2,000 new tech jobs in the Seaport once it takes over 430,000 ft. of office space at the next phase of office development in Boston’s Seaport Square, set to complete by 2021. In a related story, Notre Dame Football is scheduled to play at Alabama on Sept 1st, 2029. Really. 

Shaquem Griffin had his left hand amputated at age 4 after being born with a rare syndrome. Shaquem, out of Central Florida, was drafted in the 5th round last week by the Seattle Seahawks. At the scouting combine he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash, the fastest by a linebacker in more than 10 years. 

And it continues… Remember that the Red Sox hit zero grand slams last season. They just became only the second team to ever hit 6 before May 1st. 

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: A Philadelphia Eagles fan has started a GoFundMe page to raise money in hopes that the team’s new rookie will change his name (Dallas Goedert) because of the team’s intense rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys. 

How many of you checked to see whether Sept 1st, 2029 falls on a Saturday??? 

Trivia #1 answer: What is it called when a player strikes out 3 times in one game? 4 times? 5 times? When a batter strikes out three times in one game it is called a hat trick. Four times, a golden sombrero. Five times, a platinum sombrero. This dishonor is also known as the Olympic Rings.

Trivia #2 answer: What player holds the single-season record for grand slams? Don Mattingly hit 6 grand slams in 1987. DYK: Those were the only grand slams Mattingly hit in his entire career!

2 years. May the Fourth be with you all! 

“Trying to make some sense of it all
But I can see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
Well, I don’t think I can take anymore
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you”
