Good morning, cats and kittens. Welcome to another fun-filled and exciting edition of Bird Droppings. As I type these words of greeting Japan is currently laying another smack down on everyone's #Honkbalin' Heroes, de Nederland. But no worries. Our boy Schoopy and his fellow flying Dutchmen will live to fight another day. This game merely determines seeding for these two once the tournament's final rounds commence in San Francisco next weekend. In affairs of a more domestic nature, Dr. Jones and his fellow G.I. Joes have made their way to Miami, where they will face the Puerto Rican squad at 8 p.m. tonight. On the other side of the state of Florida, our beloved O's were scheduled to have an off day today. But Sir Buck, in his infinite wisdom, has seen fit to organize an intersquad game. #StayHungry, indeed.
