According to @bubbaprog, the NESN crew was fascinated (closeup!) with this praying mantis last night in Kansas City. How much? Even Heidi Watney was giving sideline reports on her new subject. Totally good reason to have a sideline reporter at baseball games. “Let’s go down to Heidi who has an interesting childhood story on this praying mantis.” In other baseball news, Bryce Harper shredded his hammy last night in Akron. And in N.E. – 21 1st quarter points. Ho, hum.
