King for the Day

Today is the 28th time we have officially observed Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and I am glad it really hasn’t been commercialized like the other holidays. There are a couple retailers that are having MLK sales though.

And on this past weekend Madonna dropped an N-Bomb.

When Jackie Robinson first stepped up to the plate in his MLB debut, who was pitching.

And also on this weekend The First Lady had 500 or so of her best friends over to celebrate her 50th BD.

And Sasheer Zamata made her “SNL” debut.

And Lupita Nyong’o, picked up a SAG for “12 Years a Slave.”

I was watching the thrilling end of the Seahawks win over the ‘49ers last night when the Seahawks DB went weird while being interviewed by the veteran reporter Erin Edwards. Fox cut short the interview.

Afterwards some sports writer tweeted that Erin Andrews looked scared. Later on in the broadcast Fox analyst Michael Strahan also said Andrews was scared.

I don’t know about that. I think she was just caught off guard by the rant. Of course, if Erin Andrews was Erwin Andrews nobody would say anything about being scared of you ask me.

And also this weekend it was announced that Oprah and Brad Pitt would be producing “Selma”, a flick about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Johnny Sain of course was pitching for the Boston Braves against the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.

Congrats to MariGirl for successfully completing yesterday’s half marathon.

There is nothing from The Yard today.
