6:10-6:20:

- Did the rain come to your home yesterday? Kristine put pepper on her watermelon plant, but the rain washed it off and squirrels stole a whole watermelon! A squirrel stole Bill’s car.

- Mo’ne Davis is taking the LLWS by storm. She is a pitcher and she has been drawing a huge amount of attention. She believes that the attention should not be on her, but her whole team.

- They’re comparing her to other Major League players, but Jeff makes the excellent point that she’s the first Mo’ne Davis.

- Her goal is to play basketball at UCONN and she wants to play in the WNBA.

- George W. Bush does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and we talk briefly about the campaign.

- We have a Gubernatorial candidate on today who is a little eccentric.

6:35-6:45:

- It looks like the deal to sell Nice N Easy is going to go through. CST is the company that is buying the convenience store chain, and it appears that they will keep much of the stuff the same.

- Bill has been glued to the LLWS coverage. The announcers are so focused on Mo’ne Davis that anything else that some other player does, focus is brought back to Mo’ne.

- Would there be as many people in the stands if Mo’ne was not doing what she’s doing.

- Andrew brings up the fact that a LLWS analyst is kind of ridiculous.

- There was a story in the Utica OD that SUNY PI, or SUNY IT, has lost a big participant in NANO project, and they are denying that.

Continuing with Randy Credico

- We review the facts of him being arrested and they impounded his phone.

- He says he is the most progressive candidate since FDR! He believes he is the only Democrat who is opposed to the SAFE ACT. He is pro-constitution! And he supports marijuana as well. He has inhaled and will inhale.

- When we ask him if he thinks he has a chance to win he gives some great circumstances and situations where the impossible happen.

- He has been featured in a documentary created by Jack Black called Sixty Spins Around The Sun:
