David Ortiz Will Officially Have A Street Named After Him In Boston

Friday night is going to be a big night at Fenway, with the Red Sox officially retiring David Ortiz’ number 34. The ceremony figures to be a relatively long one, which is only fitting to honor arguably the largest figure in franchise history. Some of the ceremony is going to be a surprise, but on Wednesday we learned of one portion. The city of Boston is planning to rename a street after the legendary Red Sox slugger.

 The street to be renamed after him is currently known as the Yawkey Way Extension, and it lies between Brookline Ave and Yawkey Station. Starting Friday night, it will be known as David Ortiz Drive. – Over The Monster

David Ortiz’s name will take it’s rightful place alongside Yawkey Way this week, as the city of Boston and the Red Sox are turning Yawkey Way Extension into David Ortiz Drive. I’ll be at the number retirement/baseball game tomorrow night, and I can’t wait to see Big Papi back on the Fenway diamond. He’s the greatest Red Sox player of my generation, and will obviously go down in history as one of the handful of greats the organization has ever had. I watch that grand slam video I embedded above on a weekly basis, and there’s about a dozen more videos where he’s heroically winning the game for the Sox. Congrats to David Ortiz.

Monday Morning Discussion: Would You Have Your Testicle Removed For $870,000?

A Pennsylvania man has been awarded $870,000 after a doctor removed the wrong testicle during a surgery in 2013, according to Fox 43.

Steven Hanes, 54, of Mount Union, Pa., was operated on to remove a painful right testicle, after experiencing pain for years. Medical imaging showed that the testicle was nearly half the size of the other, the same outlet reports.

However, Hanes discovered that his left testicle — the healthy one — had been removed in the procedure. – NY Daily News

Classic Sophie’s choice (I’ve never seen the movie). Now obviously Mr. Hanes wasn’t given this choice when he went in for, what was it? Painful testicle surgery? He was expecting the bad testicle to be removed, but those wacky doctors took out the good one instead. In this scenario, you either take the money and lose a testicle or you keep the testicle but lose out on the money. You have to take the money, right? Testicles are probably the most useless part of your body unless you’re trying to have a kid, but even then I bet you could get by with one nut. Aesthetically nothing is changing, but you are $870,000 richer. The only thing you have to worry about is the money being real. If somebody is approaching me on the street asking for one of my testicles in exchange for almost a million dollars, I think it’s perfectly acceptable to be skeptical of this person. If the money is real, I’m in.

Be Better America: 7% Of Americans Believe Chocolate Milk Comes From Brown Cows

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the National Dairy Council.

If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar. – Washington Post

The cows are judging us

Well this isn’t the best look. 7% of Americans (or 16.4 million if you’re into that sort of thing) think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Saying that’s too many people is an understatement. One person thinking this is too many people. 16.4 million? That’s just depressing. I honestly think the more advanced technology becomes the dumber human beings get, because now technology does everything for us. I’ll admit I’m part of the problem too. If I’m typing something at work and I don’t know how to spell a word, I’m not giving it some thought and trying to figure out the correct spelling. I’m just throwing some letters together and letting spell check do the work for me. While I’m getting lazier on the spelling front, I can proudly say I’m not part of the 7% who think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Also, how mad do you think Hershey’s was when they saw this study? They’ve spent their whole lives making this delicious chocolate syrup to put in milk, and then stupid Americans and brown cows swoop in and steal their thunder. It’s not right.
