Baltimore bridge collapse.
I've been to Maryland once and there a ton of bridges and water (rivers, lakes, etc.) everywhere in that state.
They didn't take any consideration on height restrictions for the cargo ship with their stacked containers.
I haven't heard anything about what the cargo crew said about the crash.

This is a statement by Billy Starr who is the founder of the Pan Mass Challenge. Just received this email.

Dear Friends,

Larry Lucchino passed away this morning at 1 AM. This man was a giant whose impact on baseball, city stadiums, and the Red Sox role with philanthropy, was immense. I am sure you will all be reading the plaudits and obituaries that will be available shortly. But in PMC world, there are few, if any, whose role allowed for such an oversized impact. Larry spoke at PMC Opening Ceremonies in 1995 (when he was with the San Diego Padres) and recognized the PMC’s potential immediately.
When the Henry, Werner, Lucchino troika bought the team in 2002, Larry arranged for me to meet with John and Tom. My pitch was essentially: “The PMC is doing $15 million without you… imagine what we could raise with you.” Larry secured the sponsorship.

In 2003, the PMC signed a 3-year, $2.1 million sponsorship deal with the Red Sox. It was transformative – not just the money – but it being the first time – ever – a crown jewel sports franchise in the USA underwrote a bike event. Not a hospital, a bike event! Larry made that happen and the rest is history. He was smart, tough, fun, and deeply heartfelt. He had every reason to be, as a cancer survivor treated at Dana-Farber by PMC’s own Lee Nadler (who introduced the two of us). Larry always understood his obligation, and opportunity, to forward cancer research and treatment, given his Red Sox position and, soon thereafter, the Chairman of the Jimmy Fund as well as the co-chair of an earlier capital campaign (with current DFCI Chairman Josh Bekenstein). We were all the beneficiaries: from the Red Sox championships to a future filled with increasing hope for anybody receiving a cancer diagnosis. Larry was at the forefront of that battle as well. He will be terribly missed.

I went to Crypto arena in downtown LA for the NCAA tournament and see that beers are like $13 to $16.
NCAA T-shirts are like $55 I think if I'm not dreaming.

Baseball stadiums seem more like Entertainment Centres than they do ballparks. All the bars in the stadium (where there are several in close proximity) and serving gourmet food (where you could end up wearing more food than actually eating it:ROFLMAO:). I prefer to focus on the team.
