Puerto Rico electric vs paper towels

Marty’s photo of the day #2518: In honor of the Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Indians baseball games in Puerto Rico this week, I’m digging into my Puerto Rico photos. The series ended last night with each team winning a game. In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that the final game would be “electric,” with Twins’ Puerto Rican ace, José Berríos, on the mound. Well, he came through with an electric no-runs performance, but of course, the entire island of Puerto Rico lost power yesterday. Trump immediately blamed the Puerto Ricans for the incident, tweeting, “Brown-skinned people are incapable of using paper towels properly!”

Oh, and the Twins didn’t win until the 16th inning, with Puerto Rican Eddie Rosario scoring the winning run. The game went so long that Twins’ first baseman Joe Mauer was 34 years-old when it started and 35 years-old when it ended.

Today’s photo features one of the many hermit crabs I found along Puerto Rico’s beaches.
