We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: a 9-year-old cardboard arcade hero, the perils of walking and texting, and water up close.
Meet Caine Monroy: he built a cardboard arcade in his dad's auto parts store and had a terrific, terrific day. He's about to become your next viral video megastar, which is hard to argue with. His soon-to-be-newfound fame will probably only be enhanced by cainesarcade.com, a Web site devoted to the film -- directed by Nirvan Mullick -- that also features directions to the real, live Caine's Arcade. Perfect for a nice blog road trip. [Nirvan Mullick]
Here's the scene outside Marlins Park during Ozzie Guillen's "I love Castro" mea culpa on Tuesday. It's been widely noted that Miami is not the market where you want to be quoted saying "I love Castro," but after watching this, we're starting to wonder if Marlins owner Jeff Loria -- who is in the process of rebranding the club and about to open the doors on a very expensive new stadium largely funded by taxpayer money -- might end up dumping Guillen entirely. Five games is certainly not going to make the situation much better. [via Miami New-Times]
