I now subscribe to a substack newsletter Dead Legends, which this week talked about The Pine Tar Incident. See the newsletter for the full story in all its glory.

The news tonight in baseball is that now the LA Dodgers have been accused of stealing signs in the 2018 World Series, which they lost in five games to Boston anyway, so whatever they may have been doing, it didn't do them any good.

Baseball is now getting dragged into the US culture wars - school districts in Florida are preemptively removing biographies of players like Roberto Clemente and Hank Aaron, apparently because nobody wants to find themselves targetted by Florida's asshole governor Ron DeSantis nor his redneck supporters.
This is how much baseball means to the people who play it! https://t.co/70joPVGQAB— Cathie from Canada 🇨🇦 😷🏳️🌈 (@CathieCanada) February 12, 2023
And LeBron James achieved the most points in NBA history this week -- this great video show all of LeBron's buckets:
Serious question: Where is @MLB? They’ve removed this book and Hank Aaron’s. MLB really should assert itself here and let @RonDeSantisFL know this is unacceptable. In fact, if I were the Rays & Marlins, I’d give away copies of this book to fans on Opening Day. https://t.co/U1MeQeMEUy— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) February 12, 2023
Moving on, remember The Battle of Billings Bridge, during the Ottawa Occupation a year ago? It was just about the only time that the people of Ottawa successfully fought back against the Convoy and against the Ottawa police.

So this week somebody put up a "plaque" to commemorate the battle. Of course, the city of Ottawa took it down almost immediately, thereby demonstrating how decisevely they could act when it is really important!
I was in there somewhere. What a day.— ArielTroster (she/her) (@ArielTroster) February 9, 2023
I am impressed that whoever made this plaque managed to cast it in brass and attach it to Billings Bridge. I have very fond memories of that very cold day one year ago, of citizens taking action when the city failed us. Worth commemorating, IMO.https://t.co/272X9klLCZ— ArielTroster (she/her) (@ArielTroster) February 9, 2023
A brass "Battle of Billings Bridge" plaque honouring everyday citizens who stood against the Ottawa convoy occupation has appeared on the Billings Bridge in Ottawa.— Alison Creekside (@CreeksideAlison) February 9, 2023
"This plaque commemorates the ordinary people who did something extraordinary when their leaders would not." pic.twitter.com/f35JA2aRyG
Looks like the City of Ottawa removed the Billings Bridge plaque a lot faster than they removed the Convoy a year ago! https://t.co/JXmEqKoVay— Cathie from Canada 🇨🇦 😷🏳️🌈 (@CathieCanada) February 10, 2023

The good news is I’ve never been better at Call of Duty.
Moving on, here's some penguin stuff:
one of the most underrated aspects of being an adult is that you don’t get yelled at anymore. at least i don’t. the moment somebody raises their voice one decibel above my comfort zone i just say nope and leave. we’re not getting yelled at. go fuck yourself. not doing it.— world famous art thief (@CalmSporting) February 5, 2023
Twitter has taught me that I really really love penguins!! https://t.co/xiFmlhd1CI— Jimmy🐠Swimmy 🌊 (@ArtsyFish007) October 25, 2022
When 2 groups of penguins meet on the road, they stop for a short exchange of information. When one of them moves in with the wrong group, a friend goes after him to bring him back🙂🐧🐧🐧 pic.twitter.com/W3y4ZwxdiW— Tansu YEĞEN (@TansuYegen) September 23, 2022
