As always, we tend to get a bit too theatrical with our late night updates but couldn't help finding a bit of commonality amid two recent news items.
Tonight's repeated FAIL from the home team reminds us of something The Bard wrote . . .
"Life's but a walking shadow, A poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
And this reference actually lends itself to a bit of good news about an enduring local Summer tradition for the hoity-toity denizens of the cowtown arts scene . . .
The popular Heart of America Shakespeare Festival returns to Southmoreland Park next week.
And, in turn, THAT reminds us that we shouldn't feel too bad about the Royals dropping their latest game in not-so-spectacular fashion . . .
Tonight, the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Kansas City Royals 7-0 at Kauffman Stadium. The Blue Jays tagged Royals starter Brad Keller for a pair of runs in the second and scored three more in the seventh off a combination of Keller and Collin Snider.
And because we always like to end on a (stolen) joke . . . Here's a bit of creative writing inspiration that all of our hackneyed colleagues might want to consider going forward into the (hopefully) post-COVID world . . .
We plan to share more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
