The bunny has been watching the dog herding; now bunny thinks he can herd too
What a way to join the team. In his first game since being called back to the big leagues, he crushed a walk-off 3-run homer to beat the Cards in the bottom of the ninth. There was no doubt about whether it had the distance from the moment it left his bat, though it just snuck fair inside the right foul pole. The ball bounced once near the Bowtie bar, and right on out of the stadium. We will miss Jay Bruce, to be sure, but this guy could be an up and comer to pair with Adam Duvall for a few years!
This is spectacular!
A meteor, or comet or other interstellar object, crashed into Jupiter the other day, and created an explosion so massive that it was visible from earth. Not visible from the naked eye, but large enough that a couple of large telescopes pointed at Jupiter were able to observe it. And, they caught it on video! Watch for yourself!
Apparently, it happens with some regularity, but man is that a cool video.

A big gator walked across the green at Colonial Country club in the middle of the day! The rule is usually to play it as it lies, but you would be crazy to try to put this out! What do you do in this circumstance?
So, feeling my age this week after:
and Peyton Manning’s ongoing fight to stave off retirement, at the grand old age of 39…
“Broncos QB Peyton Manning will practice today, for the first time since being removed from a disastrous game against the Chiefs and put up on the shelf to let his various bruises and tears heal. He is not expected to play this weekend—Brock Osweiler is still the starter, but probably not for long.
Gary Kubiak made the announcement yesterday, and it’s a reflection more of Manning’s medical progress than of any hints toward the team’s plans. Manning’s body really started to break down this year, but it was a partially torn foot ligament that finally forced him out—amid a career-worst start to his season—and put him in a hard cast and then a walking boot for few weeks….”
Then I hear that the Reds have traded Todd Frazier, which may be the smart thing to do, but he’s so cool, and it just makes me sad that we can’t hang on to more than 2 players for more than an arbitration year. That’s baseball… we can’t have nice things, and that makes me sad, too… on top of losing Chapman last week. And Andy Dalton’s injury. And global warming, and Trump, and so on. At least Trump is entertaining.
Star Wars better not suck… I don’t think I can handle the disappointment! That said… I can’t wait. This will cheer the darkest of hearts…
