Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Susette Kelo’s famous “little pink house,”which became an iconic symbol of the Kelo case.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Ask any college student in the U.S all the ways in which college bleeds money from attendees and you will have a pretty substantial list.

MLB: Bryce Harper’s ejection shows need for automated strike zone

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

After being called out on strikes in the fourth inning of the Phillies’ loss to the Mets on Monday, Bryce Harper barked at umpire Mark Carlson from the dugout, got ejected, and threw a whole fit. His hair looked fantastic, but the rest of him looked pretty childish.And I get it. In quiet, rational times, I maintain respect for the work done by referees and umpires to enforce the rules of their sports, but during the heat of competition — any competition, really — I become convinced officials are either grossly incompetent or, for whatever reason, punishing me personally with their calls. I am not someone anyone would ever call “sportsmanlike.”

Interesting.  With so much money involved, it’s easier to “blame the refs” than improve yourself.

What happens then there is no umpire to blame?

Will he assault the RoboT Ref?

What’s next?  The safe / out call by drone?

It’s a kid’s game and supposed to be “fun”.  Leave it to adults to drain the “fun” out of everything.

Argh!
