Usually it's athletes making news on Twitter, but last night it was ESPN. The network instituted new tweeting guidelines for its staff, and there are a lot of them. The ironic thing is the story was broken by one of its writers on Twitter. The official statement from ESPN is as follows: "We have been active in the social media space for a while.

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that SI does not institute such a policy. It would be a shame if the public wasn't allowed to read gems like this.
The Angels held '80s Retro Night last week. The club's broadcasters got into the action and sported some interesting clothes during the pregame show, with Jose Mota wearing Eddie Murphy's outfit from the greatest stand-up comedy show of all time, Delirious.

The bottom line is this: Just go to YouTube, type in Delirious and watch every clip. (Thanks to Mike for the link.)
