What I'm Reading - July 12, 2018

News

Papa John’s Founder Quits As Chairman After Using The N-Word During Conference Call - Good riddance!

U.S. Reopens Investigations Into Emmett Till Slaying - I’m always skeptical over cases like this. One one hand, I hope we get some real answers. On the other, I feel like it’s far too late to hand down any repercussions. I also find it odd in the age of the Sessions-led DoJ.

Sports

Seattle Mariners

Jean Segura wins American League Final Vote - Jean Segura becomes the fourth All-Star for the Mariners this year. The Pacific Northwest really came through with the votes. Myself, I voted 20 times.

James Paxton to start Thursday vs. Angels - The M’s are moving Paxton up a day into Felix Hernandez’s spot, who was placed on the DL Wednesday. The plan is to let Felix rest through the All-Star break. This could also leave the door open for Paxton to pitch in the All-Star game, if pitchers selected eliminate themselves from participating by pitching this coming weekend. Paxton would be a more than worthy replacement.

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints Tragedies: 1-26 - Canal Street Chronicles - As if anyone needed a reminded of how bad early Saints teams were, here’s a look back to 1977, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into the Superdome with a franchise record of 0-26 and left with their first win in franchise history.

Florida Gators

Gators’ Elite Non-Conference Schedule Announced - Florida Gators - Florida basketball scheduling in ways Florida football doesn’t.

Tim Tebow Named to UF’s Ring of Honor - Florida Gators - I honestly thought he was up there already. Either way, it’s a given being he’s one of three Heisman Trophy winners in school history and has a statue outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Tech

Apple MacBook Pro 2018: Price, Specs, Release Date | WIRED - The specs look nice. But, the keyboard. We’ll see.

Music

Listen to Childish Gambino’s Two New Summer Songs: “Summertime Magic” & “Feels Like Summer” - We heard one of these tracks during Gambino’s SNL appearance back in May. The man continues showing his versatility.

Dr. Dre is Currently Mixing Anderson .Paak’s New Album - I’m very excited for this project.

Random

How to Teach a Cat to ‘Handshake’ Upon Request - Between this and using the toilet, it may be far too late for my cat.
