Stuff You’ll Like: May 24

Live from the Hyatt in Columbus, it’s today’s edition of Stuff You’ll Like…the first of which, for my allergies’ sake, is hopefully Claritin.

- In case you missed it yesterday: our first episode of Where Have You Been?, starring guest contestant Brent Axe.

- A look at the night Ted Turner managed the Braves.

- Why the Astros and Marlins are chasing history.

- For SNL fans: a comprehensive list of guests at Stefon’s wedding.

- The story behind some classic Arrested Development gags.

Song of the Day: British singer-songwriter Thea Gilmore’s acoustic take on “Bad Moon Rising”.

- And finally, today’s Chief of the Day is Kevin Brown!

No, not me.

And not that one either…

That’s the one! Kevin’s a former Chiefs catcher who played 141 games for Syracuse from 1998 to 2000. Some other fun facts…

  • He played parts of seven seasons in the major leagues, from 1996 to 2002, with Texas, Toronto, Milwaukee and Boston.
  • He ranked fifth on the 1999 SkyChiefs with 13 home runs. (Kevin Witt’s 24 led the team.)
  • He’s the highest draft pick ever from the University of Southern Indiana, as a second-rounder from 1994. (Darin Mastroianni, currently on the Twins, was a 2007 16th-rounder.)
  • He never actually faced pitcher Kevin Brown. That’s really sad.

Chiefs and Clippers at 7:15 tonight. See you there.
