Never Fear, the Bunker has Sports

Never fear, dear listeners, our bunker is six miles from the military lockdown in place to protect a peaceful transfer of power, and we have sports. And beer. Mariners and Giants boyfriends, political contributions, playoff time in Winter Ball, and VallyCats scorned round it out this week.

Never fear, dear listeners, our bunker is six miles from the military lockdown in place to protect a peaceful transfer of power, and we have sports. And beer. MLB’s PAC is suspending and reviewing its political contribution policy in light of the insurrection.  Owners and players remain free to donate money wherever they like, but you don’t have to condone it. Citifield joins Petco Park, Dodger Stadium, and Minute Maid Park as a vaccine distribution location, with more ballparks likely to come.The Tri-City ValleyCats sue MLB and the Astros for $15million for being tossed out of the minors after 18 years as a short-season affiliate.

Pottymouth goes straight to the top for her Mariners boyfriend pick of #1 Kyle Lewis, reigning rookie of the year, and another shining example of  the young players showing up and giving back. Patti picks exceedingly motivated next big thing Jarred Kelenick, top Mariners prospect and likely left fielder. Honduran national hero Mauricio Dubón is Pottymouth’s Giants BF for the coming season, while Patti goes for former Met’s fan favorite Wilmer Flores. These two players give us the new vocabulary words “catracho” and “catire.”

Winter ball brings us a Game 7, baby, in LIDOM, a COVID reprieve, Yadi, and a good story about Roberto Alomar in LBPRC, and a lot of familiar names plus too many people in the stands in Venezuela. Women’s hockey starts 1/23 in Lake Placid and on Twitch TV.

Wash your hands, wear your masks, watch your distance, get your vaccine as soon as you can, and fight the man.
