I didn’t even know they had a basketball league in New Zealand, and yet there’s Curtis Granderson chucking souvenirs into the stands during one of the games. The Grandyman is in the country as part of MLB’s International Ambassador program, which Anthony McCarron wrote about yesterday. He’ll be there for another week or so, and will hold clinics and make several appearances in the meantime, including one at a big youth tournament. This is Grandy’s fourth time in the program, as MLB has sent him to Europe (2006), South Africa (2007), and China (2008). C.J. Wilson (South Africa) and Prince Fielder (Tokyo) are also involved in the program this year, and you can see a video of Granderson’s experience at his blog. What a life, eh?
Anyways, here is tonight’s open thread. The Rangers, Isles, and Devils are all in action, plus the new season of Parks & Rec starts tonight. The FJM’er formerly known as Ken Tremendous co-created that show, you know. It’s pretty awesome, I recommend it. Talk about whatever, enjoy.
