A Lunchtime Roundup That May Not Be Possible if SOPA Were to Pass
Philly.com wants you to know they found a new sponsor for their Express video featuring a moderately hot anchor
I’m was really tempted to call this post Noontime Nuggets, but then I realized I don’t work for public radio. Anyway, some things from over the last 24 hours that are simultaneously worthy of mention but not able to carry their own weight in a post:
– The David Murphy-John Gonzalez feud may live on in perpetuity. Check out this Tweet from Murph in response to Gonzo’s Tweet about Philly.com avoiding Marcus Hayes’ slightly racist comments, which he made on DNL last night:
Gonzo, of course, is rumored to not be allowed to write about the Eagles for CSN, per the Eagles….
– Jimmy and Johari Rollins are having a mini J-Roll™. And, if that wasn’t cool enough, Jimmy recently went to Uganda to work with impoverished Little Leaguers there:
He has been dancing with toddlers at a Right To Play event at St. Stephen School while shouting the refrain, "Get another friend." He has been teaching players in Lugazi the intricacies of eating sunflower seeds. He has made better infielders out of kids who already were pretty good. He has given a bravura freestyle rap performance on a stage at the Sharing Youth Center. He has handed out shoes and batting gloves and candy and gum. Together with his younger sister, Shay, he has embraced his first trip to Africa in a way one might not expect from a one-time MVP, three-time All-Star shortstop who just signed a guaranteed three-year, $33 million contract.

– The new Hunter Pence bobblehead:
– The Union are about to sell Sebastien LeToux to Bolton in England to get money to spend on Danny Mwanga.
– A reader sent me this story about completely naked _________ out late-night carousing with __________ which is apparently what led to __________ getting traded, and eventually landed ___________ in Philadelphia.
Unfortunately, if that last one were true, it, along with the rest of this site and others, may have been indirectly censored by the government if the SOPA bill were to pass. Drastic measures that would be available to law enforcement include: cutting off funds to sites potentially infringing on copyrights, shutting down hosting providers, and forcing service providers and search engines to block access to sites that are merely suspected of posting or linking to copyrighted material… all based on a copyright claim that may or may not be legitimate, and which could come from something as small as a commenter on a three-week old post linking to a protected video. If you like this site and or Facebook or Twitter or Reddit or Wikipedia or YouTube or pretty much any blog on the Internet, I’d ask that you sign this Google petition against SOPA. Thanks.
