The Morning Update (4/21) Cincinnati Reds, Cyclones, Darren Rovell


Everyone survive Easter? Perfect we have plenty to talk about after yesterday.

First off I’m not cut out to hide eggs for children, I don’t understand them and apparently I don’t realize how tiny they are. Hiding eggs in trees and on top of cars is frowned upon? I don’t know I don’t have kids. Also when did kids start getting toy eggs, like polly pocket eggs shaped like castles? What is that! I got hard boiled eggs as a kid, you know what you did with those? Absolutely nothing. Kids these days are soft.

Ok enough about stupid eggs. The Cincinnati Reds and the Cyclones were in action on Sunday. Both ended the day with dominating victories over their opposing teams.

Cincinnati Reds (8-10)

Back to back series wins for the Reds. That is a huge relief to fans and the club following the first nine games of the season. An 8-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday behind Homer Bailey’s first good outing of the season. 6IP, 6 H, 0ER, and 8 SO for Bailey propelled the Reds to win with an explosive offense.

Zach Cozart was in the zone Sunday. The struggling shortstop went 3-5 Sunday with 3 RBI and an home run. An excellent display of turn around from Cozart. Mesoraco also had a great day going 3-4, the bottom of the order proved to be the run scorers for the Reds.

Cincinnati travels to Pittsburgh for a 4 game series starting Monday at 7pm on FSOhio. Mike Leake (2-1) will be on the mound for the Reds.

Cincinnati Cyclones

After a great win in Game 1 of the opening round of the ECHL Playoffs the Cincinnati Cyclones returned to the ice in Orlando for Game 2 against the Solar Bears. A 4-2 victory in Game 1 was only a precursor to the offensive power of the Cyclones.

A 7-3 victory Sunday showed the power that the Cyclones have on offense. A hat trick by Byron Froese helped to propel the Cyclones to a commanding 2-0 series lead as the series shifts back to Cincinnati on Wednesday. Tickets are available so get out and see your Cyclones.

Darren Rovell

In other news the money man for the World Wide Leader Darren Rovell turned to twitter last night to fat shame a man who bought two court side tickets, $2,500 a piece, for himself. Rovell later apologized for the tweet. He should know you cannot shame an obese person on twitter if your are an on air personality. ESPN is one of if not the most politically correct media outlets, Rovell has no excuse.

Here is the tweet, that was deleted.

What happens when you give our boys in the sky GoPro’s for their fighter jets? A pretty badass display of what it would be like to fly one.
