Today is Jackie Robinson day!! April 15, 1947 is a day that will forever be remembered, not just in the baseball or sports sections of the world, but in all other sections as well. Robinson was a two sport athlete at UCLA and chose to become a professional baseball player. At that point in time, a man of color had to play in the Negro League instead of Major League Baseball. But thanks to Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey that all changed on April 15, 1947. Rickey was the owner/general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Many people forget that without Branch Rickey, Jackie Robinson would never have become a professional MLB player. Thankfully Rickey and Robinson together broke the color barrier. Not only did Robinson break the color barrier, he was also a great player winning NL Rookie of the Year, NL MVP, and a World Series ring. Now every year on April 15 all the players in MLB wear the number “42” to show their respect to Jackie Robinson and all of the things he did for baseball and civil rights.  

For the whole story, be sure to watch “42”, an exciting rendition of Branch and Robinson’s story starring Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman!!

MLB BUNT

This is a great game! It’s super fun and interactive. Great for anyone who loves baseball and trading cards. Opening packs of cards through the game is just as exciting as opening a pack in real life. Wondering who will be inside, hoping it’s someone you want! If it ends up being someone you don’t want or a duplicate there is a great trading network with other members of the game. 

The moderators and other players are extremely helpful when you’re just starting out giving tips and tricks to make the game more fun and to get more cards. 

If you wanted to you could buy a bunch of coins with real money and get a bunch of packs, but if you’re like me and don’t want to spend real money you can participate in trivia, games, and more to earn coins ( in addition to the free ones you get daily). 

If you ever run into problems, the moderators are available via twitter and email and respond almost instantly. 

This is a great game for baseball and trading card lovers. Be sure to join and participate and you’ll have a great time!

If you need any help within the game hit me up as SFLANI !!

Have fun!

Crisis

NBC’s newest show Crisis is so far so good. At first I was a little skeptical about the show. With NBC basically shoveling the trailer down audiences throats in commercials form, It seemed like i already knew the whole plot and story. I was so fed up with the commercials it felt like the show had already failed me. When the show finally aired it was a pleasant surprise. In the first episode alone there were several interesting plot twists (that I won’t divulge for those who haven’t seen it yet). 

The show has an unique concept: kidnapping the children on politically 
 powerful people in order to get those people to do things for them. The mastermind behind all of this is a parent who was framed by the CIA, divorced by his wife, and estranged by his daughter. The FBI is of course trying, and failing, to find the kidnapped kids but it is the unlikely pairing of a secret service agent, who was able to rescue one of the kids from the kidnapping, and an FBI agent who’s daughter is one of the kidnapped but the daughter doesn’t know it. 

The show is pretty good so far but it seems unlikely to go more than a season. The kidnappers either fulfill their plan or they get caught or some combination of the two. It will be exciting to see where the story goes.
