Happy Wednesday!

MLB: Houston Astros at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone! Yesterday brought with it some good news and some bad news. Everyone around baseball was shocked and saddened to learn about the passing of Roy Halladay, who crashed in a personal plane in the Gulf of Mexico. He was only 40 years old.

Halladay was an incredible pitcher during his time and was also a great humanitarian, for which he should also be remembered.

Let’s get you some other news from around the sport.

  • Have an iPhone with that annoying glitch where it won’t let you type the word “I”? Supposedly this method will help (although I didn’t do me any good).
