Baseball's unwritten rules are part of the game's charms.

A Yankees pitcher got ejected for using pine tar -- but it's how used it that really got him in trouble.

Did you believe any of these baseball myths?

#mlb  
The sport isn't in decline. Football isn't more competitive. So why do people say otherwise?

Heads up everyone.

Spring 2014 has been a quiet tornado season thus far, but that's about to change this weekend, if the predicted forecasts that meteorologists are looking at hold true.

So how many masterpieces whether art or manuscripts are lost on old floppy disks?
The lost pieces of art were hiding on commercial software.

Maybe the Yankees Michael Pineda should have been a little more discreet. 
Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda may have gotten away with pitching one game to the Red Sox with a hand covered in what looked a whole lot like pine tar, but the Sox weren't going to let it slide a second time.

This NYPD social media outreach didn't quite go as expected

If you're going to use social media as a police agency you sometimes have to take the bad with the good. 

#myNYPD  
Rather than heartwarming neighborhood scenes or pictures of tourists with mounted officers, many posts tagged #myNYPD showed violent interactions with civilians or other unflattering incidents.

The sandwiches are good and the portion size is always huge. Why is it that my favorites here are not the healthiest choices on the menu? That being said, they do have quite a number of healthy options for those so inclined. And most importantly here in Texas, the iced tea is really good.

It took quite a long time for Temple to get a good Thai restaurant. I'm glad that we finally got one. Today was the second time we ate here. Both times the food was really good. You can tell a lot about an Asian food restaurant by the vegetables. Their vegetables are very fresh. We could see the kitchen staff peeling carrots and cucumbers by hand as we waited on our food. You won't likely find fresher, crisper veggies in any other restaurant. The sauces are wonderful. Very tasty and aromatic. They do use a lot of spice in their hot dishes. If you don't like spicy food, be careful what you order and specify what level of spiciness you want. Me, I love spicy foods and was very pleased. The cost is going to be a bit more than you might find in a chain restaurant. Most entrees are in the $9 dollar range. However, the servings sizes are so large you can easily feed two adults on one entree or if solo have enough left over for a second meal. We'll definitely come back.
