UPDATE: Barstool's David Portnoy and pals got arrested after handcuffing themselves together in the lobby.

Oh, those wacky Barstool folks, now down in New York for the day. They're all probably way too young to remember the time Dave Maynard led a troop of Minutemen down to New York to protest parking tickets people in Massachusetts started getting even if they had never visited that city.

UPDATE: Cop found.

Marathon runner Anusha Mookherjee reports that as she passed the Sri Lakshmi Temple in Ashland this morning, she developed some major chills.

Once over the line into Framingham, she knew she had to drop out. A kind Framingham police officer saw her shaking and gave her his jacket.

He turned away after I thanked him. He said "keep it, it's yours now". And then I took the bus back to the finish line.Cried when I got home.

Bryan Joiner cannot stop marveling over the way Betts stole second, looked around, then just kept going to third against the Nationals on Monday:

And so he will, in Cooperstown, many years from now (unless the BBWAA just recognizes the inevitability of Mookie and makes him the first-ever active player enshrined), where we will tug our exhausted families, with our five children named Mookie, to see him speak. "That’s who you’re named after!," we’ll say, and the kids will know, because you’ve told them every day. "He stole third one time, and nothing was ever the same," you’ll continue, and they won’t care, and then you’ll show them the play, and, for a moment, their eyes will light up.

Walsh cooked up the idea with Belfast officials during a trip to Ireland last year.
