Dodger’s Pitcher, Clayton Kershaw Responds To Being Pulled From A Perfect Game

After throwing seven perfect innings of baseball, the lefty was removed by Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts. Kershaw hadn’t allowed a single baserunner, finishing the game with 13 strikeouts, no runs, no hits, and no walks.  That’s when Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts made the most head-scratching decision of this short season.

He yanked Kershaw from the game. Clayton Kershaw Blames Limited Spring Training For Early Exit.

“Blame it on the lockout. Blame it on my not picking up a baseball until January… It was time.” 

The All-Star goes on to speak about the team’s goals outweighing any personal accomplishment. “Those are selfish goals. We’re trying to win. That’s really all we’re here for. I would’ve loved to have stayed, but bigger things, man, bigger things.”

(Written By our friend Kathrine Nero)

Game Day, a local media and marketing agency, announced that it will launch Cincinnati Fear to create a city-based competitive esports program.

It will engage the area’s gaming community by leveraging brands for sponsorship opportunities and by presenting events, leagues and community gatherings to support the gaming community.

Last year, Game Day named Tim David as Director of esports, and he will serve as the General Manager of the Cincinnati Fear. Previously, David managed the esports program at Mount St. Joseph University.

“Cincinnati Fear will convene the esports ecosystem in Cincinnati and compete to win and engage athletes and fans of competitive gaming,” said Jackie Reau, CEO of Game Day. “We envision Cincinnati Fear growing into another professional sports organization representing our great city in the esports community.”

Initially, Cincinnati Fear will recruit competitive gamers to compete on behalf of the team in Rocket League tournaments. Additionally, Cincinnati Fear and its partner brands will support collegiate and high school players in tournaments and live events with titles such as Call of Duty, League of Legends, Rocket League and Super Smash Bros., among others.

Cincinnati Fear will offer an opportunity for brands and organizations to connect to the esports audience here locally and globally through partnerships and activations. Additionally, Game Day will offer “Esports for Executives” to share industry information and tips on how to engage with the competitive gaming community.

Additionally, Cincinnati Fear will launch a philanthropy program to assist non-profits in harnessing the power of the esports community to raise donations through live charity streams and live charity events.

Old Enough: Japanese TV Show Sends Toddlers On Errands Into Public Places

This Japanese phenomenon now airing on Netflix, sends children as young as two out into the world alone.

Old Enough is the wildly popular Japanese show Hajimete no Otsukai (My First Errand), an entertainment documentary show where toddlers are sent out into the world completely alone, to go shopping or navigate public transport. In Japan, Old Enough has been airing for 30 years, with two three-hour shows broadcast each year. When it airs, a fifth of all Japanese viewers tune in.

The length between episodes can be explained by the sheer level of preparation that goes into each task. All the errand routes are inspected by parents and production staff, to check for dangerous roads or “suspicious persons”. The children are chosen after a laborious selection process, the camera crew and safety team are given hiding places so the kids won’t spot them.   Neighbors are informed of the task, so as not to freak out and call the police. But it is fun to see these young kids think for themselves and problem solve for the first time.
