Cristy Ren Pumps Out New Content, Notre Dame OL Hits 21 MPH On Treadmill & Ohtani Blasts Another One

We’re back. I didn’t take a day off. I have the fastball back.

It didn’t take long for the messages to roll in Tuesday from the Screencaps readers who typically depend on me to tweet out the post as their alert that it’s live and ready to be scanned. Some of you even thought I took an unexplained day off. Nonsense! There was an Internet outage early Tuesday morning that took down the Instagram API services, which meant we couldn’t embed the IG models like normal. The pics weren’t loading.

That’s why I didn’t tweet out the post link. I didn’t want to tweet out a half-assed post (due to the outage, not my effort!!) to you guys. Eventually, Instagram got its services back online around 4:30 ET and the post was updated. If you haven’t checked it out, Hannah from Cleveland State is a breakout star this summer.

Now, this morning went just fine. The sun is shining, it’s going to be about 85-degrees, the flowers are popping like crazy, and my fastball has movement. I’m back to my typical routine, and it feels amazing.

• Here’s a topic I’ve been meaning to bring up with you guys: the other day I was driving my wife’s minivan around town listening to the adult hits channel — “Best of the 80s, 90s and today” — when all of a sudden Guns n’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” came on, and I about swerved off the road. We’re talking about a channel that is the official Christmas station in this area, and they’re pumping out Axl belting out ‘You know where you are? Youre in the jungle babyYoure gonna DIE!!!!’

• Was this a glitch from the iHeart algorithms or are you guys hearing GnR while driving around town in your wife’s minivan? Email me if there are other odd songs you’re hearing on the terrestrial adult hits channels:

• And while I’m at it, I should mention that the adult hits channels should take a stick of dynamite and blow up their digital files for UB40’s “Red Red Wine.” Seriously, enough is enough with that garbage song. The algorithm is popping that one out about every 3 1/2 hours.

• I made it through the second period of the Vegas-Colorado game with the Avs leading 2-0, full of energy and Marc-Andre Fleury hanging on for dear life. Then the Golden Knights come back to score two in the 3rd and win it in overtime for a 3-2 series lead. That was playoff win No. 88 for Fleury, which ties him with Ed Belfour and Billy Smith for fourth place in NHL history behind Patrick Roy (151), Martin Brodeur (113) and Grant Fuhr (92).

• Over at the Women’s College World Series, I caught the 7th inning where there was a catcher interference call where the Florida State runner came in head first and ran her shoulder into the catcher’s leg gear and folded up on the ground for a few minutes. The ump got the call right and then got the no-call catcher interference right in the bottom of the 7th inning when the Florida State catcher played her position perfectly and tagged out the Oklahoma runner who should’ve come straight into the plate. Florida State won and is a win away tonight from a national championship.

• “[Zach] Wilson has been impressive,” the NY Post reports. This is where I remind you that Zach and his girlfriend are sitting on a half-billion-dollar empire if they can get 1-2 playoff wins, into the second contract and the massive marketing deals that are coming their way.

• Here’s a first that I know of — Browns Chief of Staff Callie Brownson was convicted Tuesday of DUI, which meant the Browns had to issue a strong statement against a female football staffer. “We aware of the incident and are extremely disappointed that a member of our organization put themselves in this situation,” the statement read.

• We’ve received a few inches of rain and then baking sun. Guys, I hate to do it, but I have to cut the grass out of rotation this week. It can’t wait another night. This might sound crazy, but I’m considering a back-to-back cut this week to get the height correct before I skip out of town for a few days.

  1. 1. Where did Erin Olash come from? Wow!
    2. I’m glad you brought up potentially mowing “out of sequence” due to heavy rain this week. I did an early-week high mow (bullpen session) so I was ready for action on Thurs and not have my yard look like a jungle.

  2. My job keeps the radio on 80’s on 8 on SiriusXM. “Paradise City” is just starting. This and “Welcome to the Jungle” play daily, along with “I Want Your Sex” and “Superfreak”. Doesn’t matter that they made dozens of great songs in that decade, I heard the same ones daily, while selling cars to mainly septuagenarians. I feel dirty when a lady older than my mother has to hear Rick James sing about fuckin’.
