Yes, I heard the news

Like everyone else in the world, I did hear the news that A-Rod is opting out of his contract with the Yankees. No phone calls are required to inform me of the fact. No emails or text messages are necessary. I’m fully aware of it. It doesn’t come as a great shock.

Oh, and in lesser news, I also heard that some baseball team from somewhere in New England won the World Series this year. This is anecdotal, you understand, because I didn’t actually watch any of the World Series. Congratulations to whoever it was that won.
