The biggest story in baseball — maybe in all of sports — this weekend was the on-field uproar caused by the New York Yankees’ Josh Donaldson calling Chicago White Sox star Tim Anderson “Jackie.” Anderson interpreted the reference to Jackie Robinson as a racist remark, while Donaldson insisted it was an inside joke between the two.
On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss the fallout of that incident and whether Donaldson faces punishment from Major League Baseball. Our other topics include Max Scherzer’s injury and how it affects the New York Mets, “Red Sox legend” Jonny Gomes, and Albert Pujols’s chances at reaching 700 home runs.
I don’t do very well with catch-up projects on TV shows and movies. Oh, I’ll binge through a bunch of episodes if I’m behind on a show. I just finished off the last five episodes of Manifest last week, after NBC renewed it. (That reminds me: Renew The Rookie any time now, ABC.) Up next are Doom Patrol, Arrow and The Flash.
But when it comes to catching up for a refresher, I’m not often successful. For instance, I didn’t rewatch the previous seven seasons of Game of Thrones before Season 8 began. And I won’t have watched all of the Marvel movies again — not even the three Avengers films — before seeing Avengers: Endgame this week.
There are too many TV shows and movies that I haven’t watched to devote that time to stuff I’ve already seen. Killing Eve, for instance. Star Trek: Discovery. The second seasons of Westworld, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. There’s that new Ultraman series on Netflix. That reminds me, I also haven’t watched Season 3 of Queer Eye. There are so many more. Oh, and the show I’m probably most embarrassed never to have watched: Breaking Bad. Yeah, that’s right.
