Willy's Not In Quarantine.

I've received another hit on a Where's Willy bill I'd definitely been hoping for.  On April 12, 2018, I received my first hit on a bill outside North America.  After turning up in Watson, Saskatchewan in December of 2017 it reappeared in Pago Pago, the capital city of American Samoa.  Now it's turned up in Strathmore, Alberta.  So to date it's travelled some 13,797 kilometers.  Hopefully it will turn up again.

He Can Take The Hit.

Major League Baseball may soon be playing again, but two big names won't be.  David Price has announced he will not be pitching for the Los Angeles Dodgers this year due to concerns over COVID 19.  He's the second high profile player to make such an announcement, as Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals has also said he won't play in this year's abbreviated season.

Price will be losing 11.9 million dollars for not playing.  But he can take the hit.  He made 31 million dollars last year.  Zimmerman made a mere 2 million last year.  Of course an obvious question is how might the layoff effect Price's pitching next year.  He's 34.
