TINCAPS REPORT PODCAST
John Nolan chats with Manager Jose Valentin about what the skipper did over the All-Star break, the changing roster, and his philosophy for guiding the team in the second half:
During the fourth inning of yesterday’s broadcast, Kent and I had the pleasure of being joined by United States Senator Dan Coats (R) of Indiana.
I opened my line of questioning with what Americans wanted to know. Yes, the Supreme Court is making rulings this week on the Defense of Marriage Act, Proposition 8, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, et al., but the people need to know:
When we we be able to use our cellphones/iPods/iPads on airplanes?
Unfortunately, Senator Coats does not work for the FCC or FAA, but he does sit on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, which includes, “Regulation of interstate common carriers, including railroads, buses, trucks, vessels, pipelines, and civil aviation,” but he didn’t know when the government would allow us those few extra precious minutes to keep playing Candy Crush, Farmville 2 (yes, they made another one), Temple Run or Angry Birds.
In all seriousness, it was great to have the senator on, and we hope he makes a return to Parkview Field soon.
The Band Perry…take it away!
