Baseball Stadium in the Bottom –
Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones is expected to introduce his administration’s long-awaited proposal for a Shockoe Bottom baseball stadium Monday, according to multiple city officials. In addition to a stadium, the project would include residential development, retail and a hotel, say sources close to the mayor. Also, they say that Jones will propose ways to memorialize the history of the slave trade in the Bottom. FINALLY. The wheels are in motion! Whether or not you agree with having a stadium in the Bottom, it’s nice to see some action being taken.
*Richmond Flying Squirrel’s VP - Todd “Parney” Parnell will be on with Melissa & Jack during Tuesday morning’s show to discuss the news.*

Hollywood Hot Mess –
Still obsessed with Golden Girls after all these years? You could be in luck. ABC is developing a sitcom about a group of aging men, Deadline reports. The show’s premise reportedly “revolves around three long-lost basketball teammates who reconnect in their 60s and discover they still have a lot to learn about love and friendship.” We can’t imagine the shenanigans these old dudes are going to get into. Picking up babes at Shoneys during the early bird special! Spiking each other Metamucil with bath salts! Putting spiders in each other’s diapers! That’s good, clean, family fun!
