The first half is over and the Yankees are on top of the AL East. Their latest series win against the gutter dwelling, last place Red Sox is their third series win in a row. What a great way to start off the month of July, as well as close out the first half of a successful season so far. Now here we are in the All-Star Break, waiting until Friday for Yankee Baseball to resume against the Mariners. Waiting sucks, especially when we have more of Rob Refsnyder to see!

Smiles and Tears from Earthbound
I am taking this moment and the SOTD to pay my respects to Satoru Iwata, who passed away yesterday due to illness. This man helped shape a lot of childhoods out there, including my own. A kind, joyous man and an absolutely brilliant programmer. He just wanted to make the world a more fun place to live in and he did for a lot of people.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day.
R.I.P. Mr. Iwata. Thank you for everything.
