So I finally finished season 2 of Daredevil last night, and let me say as expected it was fantastic. Count me in the crowd that did not like season 1 as I felt it was far too slow paced and boring. I never really gave a shit about any of the characters and that’s usually a bad sign. Season 2 turned it around completely. Where all season 1 we were waiting for him to put on his costume, season 2 we were waiting for them to stop calling him Devil of Hell’s Kitchen and finally just call him Daredevil. And the iconic billy club. The ending was both satisfying and exciting, and leaves a lot of anticipation for season 3. Additionally as has become a Marvel staple, there was a lot of great shared universe sightings linking Daredevil, Punisher, Jessica Jones, and soon Luke Cage and Iron Fist. It’s a great time to be a Marvel Fan. Speaking of Marvel, I also have finally gotten around to beginning Agent Carter. I’m only a few episodes in, but I’m completely enthralled. A beautiful, intelligent woman kicking ass in a world that is quite literally telling her to shut up and go make some coffee. Seeing the formations of S.H.I.E.L.D and the beginning of Iron Man, The Avenger Project, and many of the evil terrorist corporations such as Roxxon. So damn good. Do yourself a favor and tune in if you haven’t already. OK, that’s enough comic talk for one day, let’s get on with the highlights, which include another early contender for Play of The Year, this one by J.J. Hardy, who earned himself a well deserved standing ovation.
Wha..Jus..Huh…How…I still don’t believe this actually happened.

Do not make the third out at third. Do not make the third out at third. Do not make the last out at third. Miguel Sano made the last out at third.
Now this is just poor parenting right here. It’s okay, her natural instincts to throw the ball were on point.

This is how the Orioles day went. Trumbo strikes out on a nasty slider that left him with a bruise as a reminder.
