A brief roundup for your Thursday morning.
Mo’ne, too, doesn’t like the Cinco Ocho
Not sure when and where this was said, but during the broadcast last night, Karl Ravech relayed the following – somewhat hilarious, somewhat inaccurate – sentiment from Mo’ne when she was asked about her delivery being compared to that of Jonathen Papelbon: She doesn’t like comparisons to Jonathan Papelbon, “because he gives up runs.” Perfect.
Speaking of Ravy, whom I typically like– he felt the need to rip this cliché out: “Good thing we’re not in Philly with the way they treat umpires.” No but seriously, that ump was awful.
This guy did the same thing:
Monty G with the most Monty G shirt ever
Oh you know, just A VOLCANO IN ICELAND that could disrupt the start of Penn State’s season:
Penn State’s season opening game against UCF in Ireland could potentially hit a serious snag if the Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga erupts after rumbling to life in the past week.
The volcano’s threat level was raised to “orange” the fourth position on a five tiered scale after “Intense seismic activity” began on Aug. 16. According to the BBC it was the strongest earthquake activity in the region since 1996.
Over the past several days thousands of mini earthquakes and seismic events have caught the attention of the aviation industry. An industry that is only years removed from a similar Icelandic eruption in 2010 that cancelled thousands of European flights. The ash cloud that can result from such an eruption would reach several miles in height and disperse a fine grainy ash that can ruin airplane engines over a swath of airspace covering most of northern Europe.
Maybe I’m coming to this story late… but, um, why is Penn State opening their season in Ireland?
I received the following email last night from reader B:
Fun fact. Just left my post sips dinner at Wrap Shack. At the bar was Cooper, Kelce, Villanueva and Sanchez. Villanueva rocking a Kelly Drive shirt. Very sorry to say but no pix. Creep mode was exhausted at CHOPS.
ALWAYS TAKE PICTURES.
F that guy, but get the Eagles’ drinking shirt.
