The Red Sox have 5 players batting over .250.

Speaking of the Red Sox (who was???) Cal Ripken Jr. was interviewed during the game the other night. Cal was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February and is now cancer free. Good for him! He was a very good interviewee but I think Dennis Eckersley took it a little too far when he compared him to Willie Mays.

Speaking of the Red Sox, part duex, the headline reads “The Philadelphia Phillies solidified their bullpen by acquiring Heath Hembree and Brandon Workman and cash considerations from the Boston Red Sox.” What??? Those guys suck!

Wellness checks. Do you even know what they are??? Medical physicals, colonoscopies, mammograms. Go get yours now, if not for you for the people around you.

I’m planning on having my favorite drink this weekend. It’s call “a lot!”

Not only did the Twins’ Kenta Maeda fall 3 outs short of the MLB season’s first no-hitter, his team let up 3 runs and Minnesota finally won in 12 innings giving him a painful “no decision.”

Useless information, supposed to fire my imagination: “‘Hottest Mom in the World, Joleen Diaz, shares her beauty, fitness tips”

I’d be willing to bet that not a single school (elementary, middle, high school, college) has at least one student test positive for the virus this school year. It’s gonna be a shit-show.

Even a blind man knows when the sun is shining.

How is it that it seems the same guys/players get hurt each season? Guys currently out of the lineup for extended periods of time – Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Gordon Wayward, Steven Strasburg.

Lori Loughlin et al, I can’t be bothered.

In case you’re not paying attention, and possibly live on another planet, the Boston Celtics are now up 3-0 on the Toronto Raptors in Round 1 action and the Boston Bruins eliminated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 in their first round series. For you non-Boston fans out there, bear with us!

I was watching kids ride their bikes through the campground the other day. Remember, every bump, as little as it may have been, was an opportunity to jump! Similarly, was it just me who tried to jump and reach every beam I walked under as a kid??

There are no introduction songs for batters in MLB. Why? Can’t we try to keep some sort of normalcy?

Larry King, love him or hate him, the poor guy (now 86) lost a 65-year old son and a 51-year old daughter just a few weeks apart recently.

If you dump a bunch of potato chips onto a plate, am I the only one who eats the small chips first and saves the big ones for last?

The temperature in Death Valley, NV last Sunday was 130 degrees. The National Weather Service is still verifying the reading and, if it is correct, it will be the highest temperature in over a century. In 1913, the temperature in Death Valley was 134.

Be careful out there everyone!

“There are men high up there fishing,
Haven’t seen quite enough of the world,
I ain’t seen a sign of my heroes,
And I’m still diving down for pearls.

Let me flow into the ocean,
Let me get back to the sea.
Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
Let the tide in, and set me free.”

– The Who
