Hail, and farewell!
Farewell to Psych, one of my favorite TV shows -- favourite, for you awesome Canadian readers -- which signed off the airwaves last night with one of the funniest episodes of the show's run, including a remarkable, rollicking final segment. No disappointing Dexter or Seinfeld finale here. If you see it, you'll know exactly what I mean. ("We Bought a Zoo lied!") Pineapples for everyone.
If you don't, well then, continue on and don't worry yourself...

Behold: The MLB instant replay HQ!
Yahoo's Jeff Passan not only toured the area, he explains how it all should work. I expect there'll be some kinks early, but they'll be getting everything right by 2024.
I'm working on finishing up the Lugnuts' 2014 Media Guide right now, with it likely going to the printers next week. The last thing that will need to get done: placing the Opening Day roster in the team bios section. (The soundtrack to my work, keeping me humming - and laughing: John Mulaney and Anthony Jeselnik.)
Speaking of laughing, here's good ol' Nick Young, thinking he's knocked in a jumper:
Happy Thursday to you and yours!
