Stu finally responds: Did he know he was in violation of MLB rules when he caught the foul ball?

Glenn, Pat, and Stu were back from vacation this morning, which meant Stu finally had the chance to be tortured – ahem, questioned – about his ill-fated catch at a Toronto Blue Jays game last month that cost his beloved team an out. So did Stu know he was in violation of MLB Rule 3.16 when he reached over the wall to snag Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus’ foul ball?

As a refresher, below is the video of the play courtesy of MLB.com:

As you will notice, Stu reached over the stands to catch a foul ball hit by Rasmus as Tampa Bay Rays first baseman James Loney slid toward the wall in an attempt to make the catch. That action was in violation of MLB Rule 3.16, which states: “Should a spectator reach out on the playing field side of such fence, railing or rope, and plainly prevent the fielder from catching the ball, then the batsman should be called out for the spectator’s interference.” The first base umpire deemed Stu’s catch to be interference, and Rasmus was called out.

Considering the Blue Jays lost the game 8-0, Stu’s catch obviously made no difference in the outcome. But that didn’t stop Glenn and Pat from having a bit of fun at his expense.

The first question on everyone’s mind was: Did Stu and his seatmate – Mercury Radio Arts CEO Chris Balfe – lose their seats?

“A man from the Blue Jays organization did come to visit me. It was about five or six minutes later,” Stu explained. “First thing he said to me was, ‘You have the ball? Give me the ball.’ He took the ball and he's like, ‘You cannot be in the field of play.’”

At the time, Stu was adamant he did not reach over the wall onto the field – though he admitted the video shows otherwise. While the Blue Jays rep gave Stu a bit of a hard time, he was able to keep his seat… and the ball!

“He came down. He chastised me. And then he's like, ‘I can kick you out for this.’ And at this point, you know, these are great seats. They're called, by the way, ‘in-the-action seating,’” Stu said. “But the guy then softened and was very nice and gave the ball back to me, and I kept the seats.”

Equally important: The spectators sitting around Stu were remarkably supportive despite the fact he cost their team an out.

“The crowd, by the way, around me was very supportive,” Stu said. “They were on my side… When he called me out, they booed him. They tortured this ump all night. It was the greatest thing of all time. Like everyone around us, just hammering this guy all night.”

Finally, Glenn asked Stu what he plans to do with his incredible souvenir.

“I want to have it mounted with a picture of me looking like an idiot and give it to my son because it's ‘the catch’ now,” Stu said. “This is what was so amazing at that moment… I had no idea the guy had run from first base. You are in such a tunnel. I knew it was right there. I didn't think I took a step forward. I did – but I didn't think I did. And it fell right there. And, of course, my amazing abilities just shined through… Just wow.”

“You know what I think this makes this a charming story,” Glenn concluded sarcastically, “your humility.”

Whether it's a 'War on Christmas' or just progressivism run amok, the song 'Baby It's Cold Outside' has been firmly in the crosshairs this holiday season. Here are just a few of the headlines making the rounds:

Should radio stations stop playing 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'?

They range from the previous as questioning and then roll right into the following and assume facts not in evidence.

'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' Seen As Sexist, Frozen Out by Radio Stations

It may be seen as sexist but according to one radio stations polling, only about 5% do. Then they go from saying it's sexist to straight up claiming it as a rape song.

And then they just flat out call for its retirement.

Is it time to retire 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'?

The left might think they are woke and on the right side of history in the wake of the #MeToo movement — but how shocked do you think they'd be if they knew Glenn beat them to the punch over a decade ago? Don't believe me? Take a listen to this clip from our audio vault from 2008.

How long until we follow in Europe's footsteps?

Christmas should be a time of happiness and celebration the world over. But in Europe, it is now the season of terror. The sounds at Europe's famous Christmas Markets of "Merry Christmas!" and laughter are rapidly being replaced with the sounds of "Allahu Ackbar!" and gunfire. Two years ago ISIS attacked a Christmas Market in Berlin, killing twelve and injuring another forty-eight. And tragically, the sound of automatic gunfire and the chant of "Allahu Ackbar!" was heard at another Christmas Market in Europe yesterday afternoon… this time in France.

Two people are dead and thirteen are battling for their lives right now in Strasbourg, France. The attacker walked into the city's Christmas Market shortly after 8pm, shouted "Allahu Ackbar" and began shooting indiscriminately. He then proceeded to battle the police in four separate locations while he fled the scene. As of this moment, he still hasn't been caught. The city of Strasbourg is on full lockdown, and France's terror level has been elevated.

A man of Middle Eastern descent has been identified as the suspect. He was already on a terror watchlist and had been deported from Germany recently with twenty criminal convictions. He's well known in Islamist circles and was reportedly radicalized after spending time in prison. Apparently he was too radical for the Germans… but not for France.

What is it going to take for progressive governments like France to wake up to their failed policies? Nearly 300 people have been killed in terror attacks in France over the past three years. 300 in three years! But despite that, the French government refuses to address immigration, they continue their open border policy and - more importantly - they refuse to listen to their people when they try and tell them that they're scared to death over this issue. Instead they get a lecture on Islamophobia… "that's the real problem."

Outrage has replaced baseball as our national pastime.

This is one of the reasons why the Yellow Vests are tearing the country apart. The government refuses to listen to their fears on terrorism, unchecked immigration, open borders, the failing economy, high taxes and out of control spending. Wow... do these issues sound at all familiar? How many years behind France are we? Just listen to ourselves.

Outrage has replaced baseball as our national pastime. People have lost the ability to engage in peaceful protest. Street demonstrations have turned into street brawls. Have you seen the images from places like Portland lately? European governments are losing the social contract with their people. After years of broken promises and outright lies from Washington, how long before that happens here?

The Congressional reckoning for the giants of Silicon Valley continued yesterday. This time it was finally Google CEO Sundar Pichai's [Soon-dar Pa-shy] turn in the hot seat. There were protesters. There was Alex Jones and Roger Stone sitting beside each other. Good times were had by all. Pichai remained soft-spoken and calm throughout the grilling. It was his first time testifying before Congress. And you know what they say about your first time – that you should never admit to having even a hint of anti-conservative bias. We start there right now…

In his opening statement, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said:

I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way. To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests.

Congressmen from both parties were not convinced of Google's innocence. For three and a half hours, they let Pichai have it from all angles. Republican Iowa Representative Steve King asked Pichai to disclose the names of over 1,000 Google employees that work on Google's search algorithm, so that their social media accounts could be examined for liberal bias. Pichai did not hand over the list.

Meanwhile, at least one Democrat, Tennessee's Steve Cohen, feels Google has the opposite problem. He complained to Pichai that Google overuses conservative news organizations in their search results. Pichai insisted that Google employees do not favor certain news outlets over others.

Pichai saved his most artful question-dodging for the China issue. Lawmakers wanted to know about "Project Dragonfly," the communist-friendly version of Google's search engine that the company has been working on in collaboration with the Chinese government. Pichai said:

It's a limited effort internally currently.

When asked whether Google is in current discussions with the Chinese government about Project Dragonfly, Pichai replied:

…I'm happy to be transparent to the extent we take steps toward launching a product in China." Which sounds like a definite maybe.

But then, Democrats got back to the much more urgent Google issues at hand. Like Zoe Lofgren of California who asked why Donald Trump's photo pops up when you Google the word "idiot."

And to think your tax dollars helped subsidize this enlightening Q & A.
