But, hey, it’s not as if I’m going to be able to go to bed for a bit, anyway. This afternoon’s game was like mainlining a six-pack of XXXtra Strength Red Bull, with espresso chasers. I may never sleep again. So, what have we got?

Meaningful #Dbacks baseball on every TV in the restaurant in late July. The way it should be. Another JD Martinez HR too but that's a given.— Luke Lapinski (@LukeLapinski) July 30, 2017

This thread is basically the baseball game, as described by an alien visitor to Earth. Particular highlights:
There is a large bird wearing a shirt terrorizing small humans on the field. The crowd is... cheering?— Eddie Koranek (@ekoranek12) July 30, 2017
