Good Sunday morning to you all. If you happened to miss the Yankees-Rays showdown on Friday, by all means, run don’t walk to whatever electronic device will allow you to re-watch that game, especially if you’re a fan of lockdown pitching performances. If you just want to see an abbreviated version, Pitching Ninja has compiled all 24 Ks from the game into a handy YouTube video, although pro tip, keep your sound off through the theme song.

My friends and I have been dealing with the cancellation of bar trivia nights by writing our own rounds for each other and doing them virtually. We were instructed to re-watch The Goonies for a special theme round for this week, a movie I never watched as a kid but still find utterly delightful even as an adult. Conveniently, The Goonies was the focus of Josh Gad’s first Reunited Apart YouTube show, available to watch here if that’s something you’re interested in:
