Five Years Since Harry Kalas Passed Away

13 Apr

Great tribute from Comcast Sportnet:

And our initial post when he abruptly passed away that fateful day in DC.

 

I’ll never forget 1993. I’ll never forget 2008. I’ll never forget his home run call for Michael Jack.  Here’s to you, Harry.

Marvel ‘Forgets’ Digital Code With $3.99 Superior Foes of Spider-Man #11???

11 Apr

Recently Marvel bumped Superior Foes of Spider-Man to $4 for the #11 issue.  This was fine to me since I love the series and understand how this works.  They are going to milk the remaining fans until it ends.  That’s fine.  I assumed this meant I would now receive a digital code, since Marvel’s normal practice is to provide a ‘free’ digital code with a $4 book.

Well, I picked up my issue this week and noticed NO digital code. I got a digital code for the Daredevil anniversary issue, Secret Avengers, Ghost Rider, all other $4 titles that came out this past week, EXCEPT for Foes.  I checked solicits for April and noticed nothing on any title regarding a bonus digital.

The last title to go from $2.99 to $3.99 mid-stream was Fearless Defenders. Issue 7 was $2.99, then issue 8 was $3.99.  It had a digital code attached to it, though.

What gives here?

Kevin Ollie Is A Good Basketball Coach

8 Apr

He may not have been a great NBA starting point guard, but he’s a dandy college basketball coach, bringing the University of Connecticut to the 2014 NCAA Championship (and winning). He even dashed my hopes and dreams by out-coaching Phil Martelli in overtime in the first-round against Saint Joseph’s.  Congrats to the pencil-thin.
