Found a dude's wallet. No idea how to get it back to him.

Has a US Bank Debit Card . Guess I'll call them.

Unless someone has a better idea.

I'm sure you've googled him already so that's probably the best.

What do we think of the Bally Sports scoreboard on the broadcasts? I think it looks nice.

I would go:

Facebook, Instagram, Phone, Police in that order.

Is there a US Bank in the area? I would just go there, drop the wallet off, and let the bank contact him.

This is what I did. I actually have a good friend who is friends with the dude on facebook, but he never responded to him. I took it to the cops.

That was my other thought. I figured the cops could contact his relatives who live in Cedarburg. He lives in Portland, OR, so that complicates things.

He was pretty clearly in Cedarburg yesterday though, so maybe they'll be able to get it to his family. There was a LOT of money in it, plus his ATM card and several credit cards, so the cops were the best course I think.

I should've put it up for auction here. It would've gone for less than its value.

I'm not a fan of it in the baseball context, though I think I generally prefer the ticker approach to the box-in-the-corner approach.

One issue I noticed with the Bally scoreboard on the bottom of the screen, I was watching MLB Network yesterday and they also have their scroll on the bottom of the screen. So when they were showing highlights, the Bally scoreboard was covered by the MLB Network scroll.

That sucks. I would think this is something MLB Network needs to adapt to, but sucks as-is nonetheless.

'Like the ticker, don't like the execution' is kind of where I'm at, also. In baseball, the outs are recorded under the base indicators which feels not very visually-prominent. And, perplexingly, they denote outs right-to-left.

They had fixed that by the time I was watching MLB Network late last night, and I also noticed that the feeds from other games had outs being noted left-to-right. I wonder if we'll see that on Saturday in the Brewers game.
