Starting Nine: What in the world is 'hashtag?'
Many things are happening -- on Cut4, in baseball and out there in the rest of the world. Here are nine you need to know about today:
Apparently, Dodgers broadcaster and national hero Vin Scully doesn't know what a hashtag is. Really, though, if Vin says they don't exist, they don't exist. It's out of our hands at this point.
5. Project Runway: Uniform Edition
We talked about our favorite current MLB jerseys and what exactly makes them so great. None of us chose the Yankees. Doesn't that just make you so angry that you want to read it and tell all of your friends to read it too? I bet it does.
7. Take Me Out to VH1
Baseball and reality television have a wonderful, symbiotic history. Okay, fine, they don't. Jose Canseco did once wear a mini skirt though. That counts for something, right?
8. Kobe Bean
Whether or not the Lakers make the playoffs, this has been a defining year in Kobe Bryant's career. He had one of the greatest tweets of all time, he had a triple-double the night Shaq's jersey was retired and Wednesday night saw him put up a season-high 47 points alongside eight rebounds and five assists.
9. Red Scare
If you're not watching FX's The Americans, you're sorely missing out. This week's episode perfectly captured the measured tempo and subtle devastation of television's strongest new series. Seriously, would you rather just watch it now, or wait 10 years for your friends to force you to watch it on Netflix? It's easier this way.
