I know, I know...MLB baseball is boring. Joe Buck never gets excited, the game is slow, not enough home runs during the world series, you don't live near the Houston Astros or the LA Dodgers. Baseball is just boring...or is it?

If you listen all the way to the end of this minute, I will tell you about the worst candy idea in human history. It involves candy corn and a style of food you would see at the Utah State Fair.

With the recent release of some of the JFK documents by President Donald Trump, I wanted to explore where some conspiracy theories came from and I have found the answer. It involves marijuana, ABC news, the lunar lander, and a cameraman I used to know. This is gonna be good.

A popular Japanese restaurant is opening up in New York City and it's famous for its seafood...for reasons you may not expect. Let's just say you may feel like you're on a fishing expedition when you go. Zaou became famous because of the unique experience it offered but will the United States catch on to the craze?

Right now, 238 cities are vying to become the next home of Amazon. Politicians never think of the downside of bringing in business giants but I think I can help shine a light on it. Do you really want 50,000 hipsters moving into Salt Lake City?

With a worldwide shortage of bomb-sniffing dogs, it's unfortunate that the CIA had to flunk that cute puppy on their Twitter account. These dogs are in such high demand and the New York Times reports they are going for $25-grand...we simply can't afford dropouts. Maybe it's time for a different approach?

The World Series is underway between the Los Angelas Dodgers and the Houston Astros. The last time the Dodgers made it to the MLB's championship round was back in 1988 and magic happened. It was from this game, in the bottom of the ninth, that the term walk-off was created.

Steven Hawking has released his doctoral thesis after 50 years and Cambridge University's servers were overwhelmed with the demand for the paper. The astrophysicist has an IQ over 200, he appeared on the Simpsons, and he's the smartest man on Earth for reasons you don't yet understand.

Fashions come and go all the time. You parents used to grease back their hair and sport tie-dye shirts and the establishment would find to banish them. Thankfully, another trend is being bucked and I couldn't be happier. So long saggy pants!

Did you realize that when Madonna was singing Material Girl, she was absolutely correct? This isn't what you think it is. An astonishing discovery 130 million light-years away has proven a long-standing theory by Albert Einstein and advanced, surprisingly, by the Material Girl.

Can we please just stop with all the conspiracy theories? We've been through Watergate, Pizza-gate, and now we have Melania-gate. Yes, there is a new conspiracy surrounding First Lady Milania Trump. I guess you could say she's in double trouble.

Gordon Hayward of the Boston Celtics fell hard during the NBA season opener. The star forward broke his tibia and dislocated his ankle. His injury put Utah Jazz fans in an unexpected position. They could either revel in his pain or express sympathy for a man who got injured on the job. Thankfully, and not surprisingly, Utah stepped up.

I've mentioned before how anything that happens in New York City is news but if it happens in Utah it's completely ignored. I've got a great example thanks to a herd of cows in Davis County, my yard, and a New York animal chase.

Lately, I've been wondering why pharmaceutical companies like Bayer put cotton wads into aspirin and other pull bottles. Many years ago it was used to protect the pills from bouncing around and breaking during transport. Pills no longer break that easily and the reason why they keep the cotton in there will catch your attention.

I have a great idea for a Broadway musical - based on a historical figure who is underappreciated. Sound like Hamilton? That's because the author who wrote the book that inspired the hit show is out with a new book - about Ulysses S. Grant, the Civil War general who later became President of the United States. Ron Chernow has a gift, resurrecting the reputations of politicians who were scuffed up by history. After all, Alexander Hamilton went from zero to hero thanks to Lin Manuel Miranda's adaptation. But Grant, a homeless alcoholic who wound up leading the Union army and eventually the country, might be a harder sell.

The other day President Trump tweeted a video saluting the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. The video, showing a forest service worker, talking about FEMA and clearing debris...but something important was purposely edited out.

What do you do when you get the call to evacuate from a California wildfire but it's already at the end of your driveway? That's the terrifying question Jan and John Pascoe had to answer Sunday night. Thankfully, a solution presented itself.

Which state is the best one to live in? I know you love Utah but it's good to consider the numbers. We are one of the skinniest states, 10th on commuting distance...but we're one of the worst when it comes to education spending. Before you get buried in all the numbers, listen to this minute of news and I'll tell you why we're so great.

I was preparing a completely different story about the connection between bird feathers and air pollution...but, along the way, I discovered a bird that you really need to hear to believe. It's called the "Lyre Bird."

Isn't it strange that the most popular web page in the history of the internet is mostly blank space? If you don't know what I'm talking about just surf over to Google.com. It's amazing how, despite how sparse it is, people in the internet industry watch every pixel on that page. Maybe you should as well.

I just ordered a new, customized coffee mug online and the description says it's made with "love"...Does this mean the mug's creator is making googly eyes at my cup? This is getting weird.

This is a story about President Trump's ability to overshadow almost everything...including the MLB playoffs. Pitcher Trevor Bauer decided that yesterday, in the middle of a playoff game between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians, was the best time to take to Twitter to defend the embattled president
