Every day there are three things, none worth devoting an individual post to, but each worth at least mentioning.
1) Adam Jones. My favorite newscaster has a scoop....
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters will announce Wednesday whether or not he will pursue felony charges against Bengals cornerback Adam Jones.....
....The decision hinges, according to Deters, on whether or not the victim had attempted to seek money from Jones after the incident.
If that is the case, Deters said, he will not seek charges against Jones.
This case has been bizarre. He was arrested in early January, the video of him wishing death upon a Cincinnati police officer came out about two months ago, and yet there's been no indication of what's going to happen to him legally as he essentially struts around, continuing to workout at Paul Brown Stadium, as if nothing has happened.
What Deters announces today is not irrelevant, of course. It never is when you're talking about a potential felony, but no action or inaction by the Prosecutor will change my verdict.
I don't want Adam Jones to be a Cincinnati Bengal.
If there are no significant chargers, the same enablers who continue to buy into the myth that Adam Jones is this changed, misunderstood guy deserving of a 38th chance will hide behind the fact that he was cleared of at least some wrongdoing. And Adam will continue to try to sell us on a story that's an outright and total lie.
I wish I could say the same for the Bengals.
2) Bearcats Baseball.
I'd glanced at the UC baseball schedule yesterday to see when I could catch a game. I'd briefly considered hitting up Marge Schott Stadium last night, but opted not to instead.
The Bearcats beat the top-ranked team in the country on a pretty nice night for baseball, in front of what was apparently a good crowd to see them upset the Cardinals.
I've beaten this drum before, but if you're looking for a less-expensive option to go see some pretty good ball - especially if you have kids - then a college game is worth checking out.
And at UC, they do sell beer.
3) Speaking of baseball. The World Baseball Classic Championship Game is tonight. The US is playing Puerto Rico. I've barely watched any WBC games, but this event seems significant enough that I will express here my desire for the United States to beat Puerto Rico this evening. Yay, America!
