To be added
With baseball starting, time to give football a rest
Not so fast regarding football, "Kangaroo" Court of Appeals upholds "deflate-gate" suspension, the Federal Judges are concerned about “air in a football“?
So the Supreme Court found "Gay Marriage" in the U.S. Constitution but it can't find a "baby's right to life" - strange
Bosox have won 8 Rings, in 108 Years, considering baseball's law of averages the next Ring ceremony should be in 2026 - Not bad since, the curse of the Bambino lasted 86 years
