A mountain lion in Griffith Park, Webster’s adds "F-bomb" to the dictionary, a 17-foot python is found in a Florida swamp, a Belarus female shot-putter is stripped of gold … and we ignored the most shocking news story of the day:
Mark Ellis committed two errors in one game.
Coming soon – college tuition plummets, Lady Gaga shops at Gap, MMA fighter breaks into church naked (whoops, too late on that one).
Ellis has been a grand discovery for most Dodgers fans this season. They’d heard he had a terrific glove, but watching him every day making the routine plays, the smart plays, all mixed in with some jaw-droppers, has been pure delight.
He’s been remarkably consistent. As good and smooth a defensive second baseman as you could hope for. A genuine defensive pleasure.
