Shane Victorino will be a guest star on “Hawaii Five-0”

Sure, being teammates with Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels and Chase Utley and Ryan Howard is probably pretty great, but obviously nothing compares to starring alongside Scott Caan:

Shane Victorino is appearing on the Feb. 20 episode of Hawaii Five-O on CBS. According to CBS, Victorino stars as a business executive on a company retreat. Olympic speed skater Apolo Ohno also appears in the episode as a Hawaiian history buff. The episode centers around the murder of a man dressed as a Hawaiian NaKoa warrior.

As every announcer likes to point out during every Phillies game, Victorino is from Hawaii. It’ll be tough for him to top Utley and Howard on “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.”

The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.

Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
