First baseman Prince Fielder has a Korean-script tattoo on his neck. It reads 'hwang-ja,' meaning 'prince.'
Anybody know why? Not why the tattoo, just why Korean. I wonder if he knows himself.

I found a new blog. Guess what it's about.
Back in June they broke the US economy down (by GDP) into individual states, and compared the states to other countries. I thought it was pretty neat.
The biggest, California, is about the size of France. The smallest, Wyoming, Uzbekistan. Others of note (to me) include Florida and South Korea, DC and New Zealand, and New Jersey and Russia. Make up your own joke about that last one.
Wisconsin? South Africa.
UPDATE (theirs, not mine) from July with a new map. Wisconsin = Portugal this time.
The Mister Pterodactyl Consortium takes no responsibility for either the accuracy of this data or the bruised feelings of states that are compared to, say, Iran.

As much as I like Tommy
If you're already dropping out after the Iowa straw poll, you can't have been very serious in the first place.
