Whoa, you didn’t think we’d let today slip away without gifting you a Daily Bull, did you? We loaded up the bases and then somehow hit this content homer out of the park for a full week of fun.

Let’s talk a moment about the movie “Mr. Baseball.” It’s a wonderful film that captures the essence of post-Magnum, PI Tom Selleck before he slipped into playing the “cool old guy” like in Friends, etc. The early nineties, t-shirt styles notwithstanding, were a rich paella of cultural changes. Selleck was at his best playing the arrogant American struggling to adapt to a proud culture, while not being ashamed to exploit his potent American-ness. We must also share this excellent blogpost that recounts and speculates on the mysteriously sparse past of Mr. Baseball’s leading lady.

Aggie Beisbol had a yuge showdown last night against #13 Mississippi State and the Ags came out crushing the ball. Braden Shewmake had a nice little GRAND SLAM that really cinched the game early. Gorge on this vidya content, y’all:

How about that pitching too, tho? Six strikeouts! Haven’t seen a bearded guy named Brigham cruelly dispatch that many folks from east of the Mississippi since Mountain Meadows back in 1857. Hey, don’t be mad. History is to teach us lessons.

The Ags/Dawgs square off again tonight at 6:30 on SECN+ and tomorrow at 1 on ESPNU. Check ‘em out.


How are we celebrating Cinco de Mayo?
