DEREK JETER / FOUNDING PUBLISHER

UPDATE 8:48 am

Basically the only way I could have found Jeter more annoying is if he was like, oh, I am starting a website now, too, so nice work, Derek.

I lived in the South Bay too long to root against the As. Plus the elephant-on-globe logo is dope.

Also: Rooting for the Royals to be sacrificed in the big-boy playoffs is just mean.

Sports without time limits are the best sports.

UPDATE 12:48 am

Kinda cruel to include Mr. Met in ads that run in the postseason, tbh.

UPDATE 12:55 am

Weird how great baseball can be once you kick out stupid Derek Jeter.

I would like more information on this American Ebola case, such as: Was this person in New York recently? And, if so: Where, exactly?

i wonder what the ebola virus looks like

Guess what? If you search for "Ebola" and "border" on Twitter, there are results!

So this person developed symptoms of Ebola several days after returning from Liberia? That is ... not reassuring.

I am glad that we have a thing that is literally called the centers for disease control. Seems like a heads-up investment.

Asking a doctor how to keep people from irrationally freaking out seems a little unfair.
