Holy cow! What a baseball game last night!
Now there’s a debate about what to call a walk off grand slam home run in the 9th inning down to your last out, and your last strike, while losing 3-0. I’m going to dub it the “Backyard Dream” homer. Man, that was fun to watch.
And a week ago, it was just as exciting… I had to stay up until nearly 1 a.m., but I go to see the Red Sox come back in the 9th and walk off in the 10th, thanks to Andrew Benintendi:
Yay, baseball… when it’s good, it’s the best. Going to take my kid to see a game tonight- we’ve only got the single A Fort Myers Miracle in town, but they have been putting on a show, and are playing the #1 Charlotte Stone Crabs, featuring #4 overall pick and two-way player Brendan McKay.
In case you missed it, here’s that Backyard Dream walk off grand slam home run by David Bote- a rookie!
Oh, and he got to meet Bill Murray, who was sitting in the front row!
You think Golden State and the other remaining playoff teams notice that LeBron… er… the Cavaliers swept the top seed in the East, crushing them decisively in game four last night? It’s no secret that LeBron James is the engine that drives the Cleveland Cavaliers, but last weekend, Saturday Night Live absolutely took down the rest of the team:
While we’re talking about Donald Glover, I should point out that there is a new “Solo” trailer out with some new footage:
And in a moment of synergy, SNL ran a Star Wars/Lando Calrissian skit last week:
Check out this fun crossover clip that mashes up Arrested Development with Star Wars- featuring “Solo” director Ron Howard:
FWC responded to reports of an African Warthog roaming around St. Lucie County, Florida last month. Several attempts to trap the hog were unsuccessful. A few days later, he was spotted and they tried again to snare trap it. Finally, Officer Bradley Toby had to tackle the warthog, until it could be guided into a trap. Fortunately, Toby only suffered some cuts on his legs. I hope there’s some video of the thrilling capture that gets released at some point!
Unfortunately, the animal had to be put down so they could examine it for disease. There’s no indication how the warthog came to be living in Florida. This is the first I’ve heard of it: though it’s not the first African animal to be caught in Florida… while the Burmese python is the most notorious, there has been a spread of African Rock Pythons as well, which are also large and very aggressive. I’ve personally seen some Guinea Fowl wandering around residential neighborhoods here in Fort Myers: but those are nothing to be scared of! Glad the FWC officer was ok… those warthogs can be tough if you do not show them respect!
I’m all excited about the new Han Solo trailer that came out yesterday, but I don’t have to tell you… you already saw it last night. Well, here it is again!
This one may not be set to Sabotage, but I am still eager to see it!

Somebody found this great image of a weather radar that appears to be a dinosaur heading for Ohio. I saw it on Facebook, so I don’t know when it was snagged, but it’s too good.
It reminds me of the dinosaur, and the creepy skull images from Hurricane Matthew last year…

A robot T-Rex caught fire at a Colorado theme park, and the footage is spectacular. I feel bad for the park to lose such a cool attraction- it burned down to the wire frame. At least we can watch as it goes down in flames!
Here’s the story on CNN.
