Shane Victorino's Hawaii Five-0 Appearance Looks Hilarious

The only problem is I'm pretty sure that the Hawaii Five-0 remake is supposed to be a drama and not a comedy. By the looks of this preview clip of Shane Victorino's cameo on the show that airs tonight at 10:00 pm on CBS, one might come to the conclusion that the only reason anyone tunes in to watch said show is the super sweet Jurassic Park-like flyover shots of the Hawaiian island.

The only thing I really noticed about this clip that features Shane as a businessman of sorts on what looks like a company retreat is the mad chill background music. It sounds to me like Jimmy Cliff doing "World Upside Down." Need another Philly tie in? Cliff performed this song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with the legendary Roots crew. Sadly, the clip of that is no longer working.

From Jimmy Cliff's website:

“I wrote the lyrics, but it was a song originally written by [late
reggae great] Joe Higgs,” Cliff says. “Joe and I were very close. People
knew the role he played with Bob Marley & the Wailers. He for me
was one of the unsung heroes of Jamaican music. This was a song I always
felt I would do. I recorded the song in 2009 in Jamaica, played the
tapes for Tim and he pulled it out as one he wanted us to do. The song
was originally called ‘World Turned Upside Down,’ but I re-wrote the
lyrics and made it for the world today. Joe’s was not as broad a
subject.”

Mahalo!

As far as marketing for a television show with not exactly blockbuster ratings, recruiting a member of the WFC Philadelphia Phillies is certainly one way to go. At least one city and another state are talking about it.

I also like the idea of a world in which Shane Victorino is a powerful executive in the world of big pharma. We'd watch a whole series about just that.

MLB Playoffs: Yankees storm back for win over Astros to even ALCS

NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge ignited a rousing rally with a home run, then doubled during a four-run eighth inning to spur the New York Yankees over the Houston Astros 6-4 Tuesday night and level the AL Championship Series 2-2.

The Yankees trailed 4-0 against starter Lance McCullers Jr. until Judge homered leading off the seventh. He tied it with a line drive that nearly left the park in the eighth and scored on Gary Sanchez's go-ahead two-run double off loser Ken Giles.

The Yankees have rallied from a second straight 0-2 series deficit -- they beat Cleveland in the Division Series by winning three in a row to take that best-of-five matchup.

Aroldis Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth, and New York improved to 5-0 at home in the playoffs.

Masahiro Tanaka pitches for New York against Dallas Keuchel in Game 5 Wednesday and rematch of the opener, won by the Astros 2-1 (see full recap).

Dodgers on brink of World Series after shutout
CHICAGO -- Yu Darvish pitched sparkling ball into the seventh inning, Chris Taylor homered again and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday night to open a commanding 3-0 lead in the NL Championship Series.

Andre Ethier also went deep and Taylor added an RBI triple in the fifth as Los Angeles set a franchise record with its sixth consecutive playoff win. Yasiel Puig had two more hits in another entertaining performance that included an impressive bat flip -- on a long foul ball in the first inning.

Looking for a four-game sweep and their 22nd NL pennant, the Dodgers will send Alex Wood to the mound Wednesday night at Wrigley Field with a chance to reach the World Series for the first time since their last championship in 1988. Jake Arrieta, eligible for free agency after the season, pitches for the Cubs in what could be his final start with the team.

Los Angeles was eliminated by Chicago in the NLCS last year, but this is a different group of Dodgers. The lineup is patient and pesky and the pitching staff is much deeper, especially since Darvish was acquired in a trade with Texas in the final minutes before the July 31 deadline (see full recap).
