When Marc Anthony sang “God Bless America” at last night’s MLB All-Star Game, racists were understandably outraged since baseball is America’s national pastime and Anthony is clearly not American.

I mean, just look at the guy!

Anyhow, these two guys win the award for Most Idiotic Tweets I’ve Seen Today. When presented with the fact that Anthony is, in fact, American, they continue to insist that there’s some sort of problem, honestly convinced that it’s impossible for someone to be Latino and American at the same time. After all, he’s clearly not white and doesn’t look like he could possibly be from New York.

Stupid facts. Always trying to get in the way of people’s racism.

Boyfriend Bails as Girlfriend Is Nailed By Baseball, Goes Viral 

 Instead of catching the ball or taking the brunt of the hurling object though, the boyfriend (Bo) slid to his right, letting his girlfriend (Sarah) take a direct hit from the foul ball. Since her boyfriend was in the way until the last second, she never saw it coming.

Ouch.

If that wasn’t bad enough, it was all caught on tape. Plus, the broadcasters interviewed the clearly embarrassed boyfriend on TV. Oh, and they gave him a nickname we doubt he’ll be shedding anytime soon: “Bo the Bailer.”

One of the most amazing baseball catches ever—from Hiroshima no less, where I once attended a game—will leave you gasping.  “Climbing the fence for the ball” taken literally. - Greg Mitchell

The Nation

Rep. Anthony Weiner, sporting a Mets jersey, makes a heck of play here and helps the Democrats beat the Republicans 13-5 at Tuesday’s 49th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Weiner also scored the go-ahead run for the Democrats.
