So if you watched the Oscars, you saw this selfie take place. Twitter went nuts. People are so weird. Most retweeted and favorited tweet ever… by a long shot. I put the screengrab up top… 2.7 million. I’ll embed it below, and you can watch it go over 3 million by the end of the day. Maybe by lunch. Maybe by the time I click ‘publish’ on this blog. Who knows. Again, people are weird.
I love that she just casually calls out Bradley Cooper’s T-Rex arms.
Of course not, Cousin Larry… don’t be ridiculous.
That’s the Jerry Coleman tribute under the radio booth in Peoria. Classy move by the Pads. The Padres will be wearing that patch on the uniforms this season.
They’ve also got the JC logo on their 2014 Media guide.

|eBay – This belonged to my Mom who was a die-hard San Diego Padres Fan. She bought him at the Stadium Gift Shop in 1970. I have never seen another one…ever on Ebay. He is made of a hard rubber. Has moveable arms, legs, baseball glove and head. Padre ball cap is removable and made of a felt-type material (but sturdy type) Head and Body are baseballs. He can sit or stand. He is 7″ tall. Has very few flaws for age. Really quite adorable!!! A great addition for any collector. Any questions please email me.
Incredible! The Padres were selling their 1985-1990 logo and jersey on dolls in 1970! This is a conspiracy! That, or we’ve got an innocently uninformed daughter selling her mom’s stuff on eBay. One or the other.
Kidding aside. I love that doll. I’d buy it for $10.00 all-in cost.
Bring back the brown.
I actually like the trend in Hollywood… keep re-making bad sci-fi and superhero movies until they’re good. This is one helluva Godzilla trailer. I’ve seen a bunch of people talk about it… and man, Bryan Cranston is no more… it’s “Walter White Godzilla this, Walter White Godzilla that…” I never got into Breaking Bad. I know I’m in the minority here, but just wasn’t my thing. As for Cranston, I bet he’s thrilled to not be known as Malcolm in the Middle‘s dad anymore, but I’m guessing he wouldn’t mind shedding the image of ONLY being known as the bald meth guy either.
A handful of examples on twitter:
It goes on and on like that… MTV even took it upon themselves to mash it up.
Maybe this’ll be the movie where he breaks the mold. Doubt it.
Love me some Bub’s…. go help the homeless and meet a legend.
Like you have something better to do tonight…
This is an awesome video. Great behind the scenes look at the new Peoria facilities. That’s Todd Stephenson giving the tour. He’s Assistant to Peoria Operations with the Padres. With Todd is Jesse Agler, the Padres new media corespondent. I don’t really know his official title, but I think this is kind of a ‘first-look’ for Padres fans at the guy that kinda-sorta replaced the beloved Andy Masur. I was interested to see Jesse just as much as I was interested in the facility. He does well on camera. When he said, “That’s good milk… that’s GREAT milk… ice cold.” – I laughed. He’s one of the guys that Mike Dee brought over from the Dolphins. When asked about Jesse’s role with the Padres, here’s what Wayne Partello, the Padres’ new Chief Marketing Officer, said in an interview with the clowns over at Padres Public:
Partello: Jesse will be the daily host of a new interactive show as well as filling in on play-by-play. In addition to his hosting duties, Agler will join the Padres front office next week as director of the newly created content department, a role in which he will oversee all club digital and social operations, including the integration of content for padres.com and Padres social media accounts. He spent the past four seasons in Miami, as the pregame, halftime and postgame host on the Dolphins Radio network. Agler also hosted The Finsiders, the Dolphins’ daily multimedia talk show airing on radio, dolphins.com and FOX Sports Florida. A graduate of the University of Miami, Agler’s first job was calling baseball games for the Elkhart (KS) Dusters of the Jayhawk League. He has also served as fill-in play-by-play announcer and pregame and postgame radio host for the then-Florida Marlins.
So there ya have it. The facility seems amazing. Jesse seems like a cool dude. I’m looking forward to checking out Peoria and seeing what other cool stuff Jesse is gonna do with this “new interactive show”. I mean, that’s what I do, I interact. Game on.
Before he was famous… in 1988… still in a Benz though.

That’s Jazz rookie, Rudy Gobert. According to Jeremiah Jensen’s twitter feed, this is Rudy Gobert’s vehicle…. this is funny.
“The first & last portrait photos of Lincoln as President: May 1860 & Feb 1865.”
Saw that today and just stared at his face. The lines. The eyes. If those pictures haven’t been altered, he aged twenty years in five.
