Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

The things you learn from the Internet, "Despite the horrific display, nearly two-thirds of those who were on board the Hindenburg survived its 1937 crash"... Last night's 30 for 30 film on Michael Jordan playing baseball was very "meh". It was stale. I think a surprise for viewers will be the 30 for 30 presentation of Unmatched which will have no narrator or host but will tell the story of the rivalry between Chrissy Evert and Martina Navratilova... Jeff Passan has an excellent piece of how the Marlins were lying when claiming to be broke when then got public financing for a new stadium. The piece makes me want to give more credit to Bob Kraft who built Gillette Stadium basically out of his own pockets (if I recall correctly public money only went to public improvements like the widening of roads, etc.)...
