Sunday Morning News & Notes

Sphere: Related Content

The Flyers can't stop getting scored on early and the Phillies just can't score. Fortunately, the Flyers figure out a way to win and have a 2-0 lead over the hated Penguins.

In other news:

-The Diplomad is back and blogging. The former "award winner" took a short 7-year sabbatical. (Note the re-inclusion in the blog roll at right)

-The NY Times does about what one would expect with a profile on Breitbart.

-The media is flummoxed when minorities choose conservatism.

-An Englishman explains baseball. Excerpt:
But I was pleasantly surprised. Baseball’s a fast moving battle of nerves. When it comes down to three “balls” and two “strikes,” the guy at the bat has the world on his shoulders. If he takes another strike, his head hangs low. If he knocks it out of the park, he stands among the gods. The rules are simple and any confusion is cleared up by more beer. After two hours, I graduated from total novice to seasoned pro – shouting, “You could see the ball better if you got a haircut, hippie!” and “Hit it, don’t swat it, Zimmerman!” [That Zimmerman really bugged me. His whole technique seemed to rely on the pitcher not being able to throw. Is the man allergic to running?]

-Finally, I leave you with the awesome Warren Haynes and Government Mule playing the Sabbath classic War Pigs. note Jason Newsted on bass:
