With the plethora of home deliveries since this whole Covid bullshit began, “Prime Time” has taken on a whole new meaning with Amazon Prime.

So what happens nowadays with the MLB’s foul balls? I imagine they first need to be disinfected? Then what? Are they donated?

Speaking of MLB, why aren’t announcers at the game ballparks? I should first say that I am talking about the Red Sox because I haven’t bothered watching other games. I mean, they are announcing while watching the games just like we are, on TV! What kind of analysis is that?

For you (us) Red Sox fans, our leadoff hitter, Andrew Benintendi, is batting .061 and has struck out 15 times in 33 at bats.

We have all had that moment in our youths when we found out that the Who’s song “Baba O’Riley” was not entitled “Teenage Wasteland”

So Mike Tyson says that he thinks he can beat Conor McGregor in a boxing match. Hmmm. Tell me, which one do we root for???

“There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all”

– The Beatles
