Always locally sourced, always fresh. Taking you around the world in 80 words or less…

… The Giants beat the Tigers 2-0 last night to take a 2-0 lead in the World Series…

… Lane Kiffin is changing jerseys in the middle of games. It’s a rule violation, but somehow, Kiffin claims that the violation isn’t really a violation because he isn’t doing it for the game that its happening in. He’s doing it for the next opponent. You know, to confuse them on film or something…

… The NHL is still not playing. It would appear that a kamikaze pilot has traveled through time and taken over commissioner Gary Bettman’s body in a strange amalgamation of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers and Back to the Future. That’s the only explanation #rockoutwithyourlockout…

Best headline of the morning:

“It’s a Mad, Mad World Series”

— San Fransisco Chronicle
