Here's a touching story about a ballplayer trying to do something meaningful for a kid in a cancer ward.

Never Gonna Give You Up

Kevin Klinkhamer, owner of Dongwhipped, sent us this oddly, weirdly, bizarrely, how-the-hell-did-that-happen video, which we dig to no end.

I Always Feel Like Someone Is Watching Me ...

Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox and SLPL's still-leader in the Overall Standings, once again took some time out of his overall league-leading to direct our attention to this bit of wonderfulness, "Iowa Cubs Player Is Exceptionally Talented At Being A Weirdo On-Camera." This guy is my new hero. He can't get to the Majors fast enough.

We're Going Dark ... As In, An Eclipse Sort of Way

No, we're not going anywhere. We're talking about the Great American Solar Eclipse. Though things look as though Chicagoland will be overcast or raining when the big blot-out begins, it's still gonna be mega cool. Here's hope you are able to see it (with all the appropriate disclaimers about how you aren't supposed to look at it directly, blah, blah, blah).

There's Only One Bob ROHRman ... Jersey!

Joe Kelly does us a favor again — sending us more of the ol' coveted blog fodder — by passing the following image along with the comment "There's only one Bob Rohrman … jersey."

Those of you not from Chicago likely don't get the reference, so here's a peak into the big, bad, grand, awesome, nifty, omnipresent world of Bob Rohrman:

Nor Wanted

Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox and SLPL's leader in the Overall Standings, took some time out of his overall leading to direct our attention to a story that has since gone viral. Here it is.

The title of Joe's email was "No comment needed …"

We agree.

Except: The organist, with that little dramatic organ sting about two seconds after the ball makes contact, is the funniest thing I have heard in my lifetime. I could watch and listen to that consecutively for the next week and never tire of it.

Nacho Hero

Overall Standings leader Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox, sent us this link touting the heroism of a fan who saved nachos. Impressive, sure, but we are even more impressed at the nachos delivery device deployed at Atlanta's ballpark. Check out the size of that thing. Even more impressive, you can later put that helmet on, though you should grab a few extra napkins to wipe all the excessive nachos cheese and jalapeño juice out of your hair.

Boog's Grandson?

Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly, who is still the league's Overall Standings leader, sent us this link to remind us that past-MLB star Boog Powell may have reproduced … and his offspring may, too, have reproduced.

Four Things for the 4th

First for the 4th, Happy 4th of July!

Second for the 4th, as is our want and tradition, below is our favorite 4th of July video, one we love a whole bunch but really love because of this lyric: “I wrote a poem on a dog biscuit | And your dog refused to look at it | So I got drunk and looked at the Empire State Building | It was no bigger than a nickel …” Check this out:






Third for the 4th, here is SLPL Commissioner Rube Furrow (aka, Joe Livernois) giving it his best while conducting a rousing rendition of "Stars and Stripes Forever" with the Monterey Bay Symphony back in 2009:






Fourth for the 4th, we love this crowd-sourced video:

Trump's Presidency, Thus Far, Part 2

It sounds scary because it is fricken scary.

Those who truly believe in this country, in freedom, in democracy, in justice, in truth, well, those people would be working to increase enfranchisement, not restrict it.

But this president? His political party and their cronies? These small, selfish, petty sons of bitches? They care only for their own power. And they figure if they can just get all the data in one place and if they can go through it, sorting by race and employment and political affiliation, if they can shape the data into some bogeyman of their own fevered creation, then they can find something to further their agenda of stealing this nation away from its people.

Wallygator Has limited Vision

For today's Sunday Morning WTF?!, we watch as Wallygator does what he can to prevent a kid from getting bonked in the noggin only to get bonked in his own:

When a gator saves your life then you save his

But today's WTF?! doesn't go to Wallygator, who actually made a valiant effort to help the kid. Instead, check out the dude in the white shirt sitting in front of him. That has to be about the weakest, sorriest, non-beer-holding foul ball effort I have ever witnessed. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, front-row-sitting, weak-sauce, pathetic white guy? You couldn't stand up and lean back to catch the foul ball? You make me sad to share a species with you. Seriously? W?! T?! F?!

In the meantime, let's just go sit back and enjoy this single greatest (NSFW) fight scene in recorded history, shall we?

And why not enjoy Al trying to make heads or tails of Woo's report of a drug theft (also NWFW, clearly)? "Yeah, I'm glad I taught you that f&*!@'in word."
