The Weekend Desk Report

Yeah, I forgot this one yesterday. Or more like, I couldn't find it because I didn't remember it quite right. Here it is:


*

And from a member of the Beachwood Nation who rather go through the war anonymously:

Predictable 9/11 patriotic overkill around MLB.

Salute the flag, then bomb Syria. It never ends.

*

Here's how baseball games will be conducted in the near future:

Before the game: National Anthem

1st inning: Video tribute to Heroes of the Marines

2nd inning: Singing of Onward Christian Soldiers

3rd inning: Billy Graham sermon highlight

4th inning: Video tribute to Heroes of the Seabees

5th inning: Clip of John Wayne killing a Jap

6th inning: B-52 flyover

7th inning: God Bless America

8th inning: West Point Cadet pillow fight

9th inning: George Bush - Mission Accomplished

Nicely done, my friend.

"But yeah. Yay! Boeing. Chicago."
