The Morning Update (4/15) Snow, Cincinnati Reds, Bill O'Reilly

There are leaves on the tree and now snow on the ground. April 15th, halfway through April and there is now snow on the ground. I’m not happy and I know you aren’t so lets not dwell on this.

The Cincinnati Reds had an interesting day yesterday as well. A 10 home run game suspended after 6 innings was a bit of a surprise. I went to the movies with my girlfriend, on a Monday I know, school and work messes things up. Anyway my score center app kept lighting up, each time it was another home run.

So, during Divergent I’m wondering if the Reds can keep up, and why there were eight people in the theater and it was the loudest theater I’ve ever been in. Honestly, I’ve been to opening nights for movies that have been quieter. Not to mention when we went in it was 65, came out, 43. What happened?!

Cincinnati Reds

As it says above, the Reds and the Pirates combined for a total of 10 home runs in the first 6 innings. All but one run was scored off a home run, Andrew McCuthen’s RBI single in the first inning. From there it was a bomb fest. The Pirates went back to back three times, Neil Walker and Gabby Sanchez each have two home runs. Cincinnati has four home runs including three two run home runs.

The game will resume at 5:30pm Tuesday before the 7:10 game. If anyone learned anything from last night it was Major League Baseball. The 2015 home run derby should be a very good one.

John Calipari on Bill O’Reilly

It is not everyday I will stand up for Calipari or Kentucky, actually I have never, until today.

Calipari was on O’Reilly Factor last night to promote his book. During the interview O’Reilly asked Calipari a series of questions about the players he recruits and coaches.

During his questioning O’Reilly got more and more racist with his questioning without being adherently racist. It is hard to watch without yelling at your scree. O’Reilly has a perception every kid that plays basketball must be a rap influenced thug. Sadly that shows O’Reilly hasn’t watched college basketball in a long time, there are good kids on these teams.

Here is the link to the video.
