IMG 2796 1Q84 Book Release @ Green Apple Books

This past Monday night, Green Apple Books in San Francisco held a taco and beer party in honor of the release of Haruki Murakami’s new opus, 1Q84. The Citrus Report decided to head out, pre-order our book, and sit for a few hours in the Socialism section with a few Sapporo cans to discuss world issues. And, of course, the 1Q84. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report

We don’t like the Boston Red Sox that much, but where did the original Green Monster go

0408 fenway scoreboard 630x371 605x356 We dont like the Boston Red Sox that much, but where did the original Green Monster go wbur boston south dakota scoreboard red sox green monster

The best part about the Red Sox, minus their losing record this year, is the Green Monster. You got to love Fenway Park and a historical landmark. The manual scoreboard, as great and legendary as it it, has only been there 10 years (at least, this version of it). So where is the original?

“The original scoreboard is in a storage place,” said Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino. “I believe it’s in South Dakota.”

Oh, that is about 2,000 miles away from Fenway (1,600 to be exact).

According to WBUR.org in Boston:

If you get on the Mass Pike right where it nudges up against Fenway Park, you have to drive west on I-90 for 1,600 miles. Then take a right. After another 50 miles of corn and soybean fields broken up by herds of heifers, right there off the highway is a company called Counterpart, Inc.

Inside a large industrial building, Counterpart workers cut steel panels to specs for dashboards, utility boxes, and commercial signs. General Manager Don Deibert remembers how back in 2001, Counterpart got a very unusual order: To make a metal scoreboard from scratch.

With Steelers in the Super Bowl, Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” To Rise In Charts

Posted from The Citrus Report

In just a few short weeks, Wiz Khalifa’s anthem, “Black and Yellow” is up to 28m YouTube views. That is a shitload. And now with the Steelers headed to the Super Bowl, as they are the subject of Wiz’ song, those hits are only going to rise as the Pittsburgh fans get ready. We are siding with Green Bay, Wisconsin, but Wiz’ track ain’t a bad Super Bowl anthem for the kids…

Michael Princip’s redesigned football helmet

Posted from The Citrus Report

Designer Michael Princip is taking it upon himself to redesign the football helmet. The reason is two-fold. First, in terms of design, he segments portions of the helmet in order to dissipate concussion-giving shocks. Second, business and making money.

ESPN reports “Princip doesn’t want to compete with them — he hopes to sell or lease the Bulwark concept to one of the established helmet brands and then be part of the development team that brings it to market.”

A pretty great idea, considering our favorite player, Aaron Rodgers, gets concussions, two this year in fact, and this would help the guy out and maybe win a Super Bowl for Northern California by way of Green Bay.
