We’ll Sell You the Whole Seat, But You’ll Only Steal the Edge

You know you've been too damn busy when you're only finding out about the enormous man who tried to take his stadium seat home with him via Deadspin:

Hosler, 20, was charged with vandalism and theft after police said he broke the seat – Section 142, Row 3, Seat 4 – and took it out of Great American Ball Park.
quote from that Rob Butcher deleted
Hosler, listed as 6-foot-8 inches tall in the police report, apparently broke the seat portion – the part where fans sit – of his chair and decided to take it home as a souvenir.

6-foot-8? That's an Aaron-Harang-sized-dude walking around with a chair in his shorts. If that ain't news, nothing is.

Did Chris Just Say ‘Chicks Dig the Long Ball’?

Hey, look! It's the top of the fourth and the Reds are up 0-5. The offense is supporting Bronson Arroyo (who's also supporting himself with a solo shot) and the Giants just keep failing to steal off David Ross. There's a real danger of the Reds winning a series.

Dude, when was the last time that happened? I'm going to have to go look it up.

Either way, lovely summer evening.
