KEN BURNS RUMORS & GOSSIP

First Gay MLB Umpire Came Out and the Crowd Went Mild

Earlier this week, while watching Ken Burns’ Baseball on MLB Network, I noticed something in the crawl at the bottom of the screen about “first openly gay umpire comes out.”  Well, isn’t that nice, I thought to myself before continuing to go about my non-business.  Surely it’s a testament to how far we’ve come as a society that news of a gay official in a major sport...

Q&A: Greenburg explains new doc, ‘Forgotten Four’

VIdeo: ESPN personalities recite the Gettysburg Address

My favorite college class was Civil War History.  Why was it my favorite college class you ask?  Because nearly the entire course consisted of watching Ken Burns’ famed Civil War documentary.  You can have Gus Johnson or Ian Darke or even Morgan Freeman to narrate your life, but I would take Shelby Foote above anyone else.  If you haven’t seen the Civil War series yet, and...
