Mind the Gap
If you've ever taken the London Underground, you've heard a pleasant lady say "Mind the Gap". We had a nice chat with her this week on the show. https://t.co/jtwV6uh1dg— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 9, 2021
If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket for the final, please, please don’t boo the Italian anthem. A/ It’s an absolute belter and worth listening to. B/ It’s bloody rude, disrespectful and utterly classless.— Gary Lineker 💙 (@GaryLineker) July 8, 2021

Vaxx That Thing
Gotta say. This is pretty good.
Juvenile turning “Back That Azz Up” into a pro vax anthem is….I truly don’t even know I’m speechless pic.twitter.com/uQQLvpRsIk— Tyler Conway (@jtylerconway) July 7, 2021
Taking Full Credit
Look, I'm not saying that I had anything to do with the Cubs ending their losing streak at 11 games last night. On the other hand, I wasn't there for the 11 losses, and I was there last night. Probably not a coincidence.
Former #Cubs catcher Rowdy Elliott was born on this day in 1890. His #Cubs career ended in May of 1918, when he suddenly left the team and enlisted in the Navy to fight in World War I. Survived war, but fell out of a window and died in 1934. #everyCubever https://t.co/xge9nvC4QG pic.twitter.com/OYFnvpnZKs— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 8, 2021
Born on this day in 1859, Hank O'Day. He was the umpire who made the most controversial call in baseball history…the play that became known as “The Merkle Boner" in 1908. O'Day spent the 1914 season as #Cubs manager, before returning to umping. #everyCubever pic.twitter.com/PZufvDtnpO— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 8, 2021

There are only 330 million people in the US
Maybe, just maybe, our country's gun violence problem has something to do with the fact that a nation with 4% of the world's population has nearly half of the world's civilian-owned guns. https://t.co/6rxYXohvj0— Mark Jacob (@MarkJacob16) July 6, 2021
A More Convincing Article

Fox News is Poison
People think I'm using hyperbole when I say that Fox News has broken America. I have studied this subject more than any other. I mean it. I believe it.
Don't take it from me. Take it from this former Rupert Murdoch executive: Fox News is Poison for America.
Thanks Robert Feder

Happy 70th birthday to HOFer Goose Gossage. He was so universally referred to by his nickname, even the baseball card makers didn’t bother using his real first name anymore. (It was Rich.) He got his 300th career save as a Cub. #everyCubever pic.twitter.com/58ZL9XSt6O— Rick Kaempfer (@RickKaempfer) July 5, 2021
