That's about it. This is an interaction that that seems fairly normal. Later that afternoon porter begins texting her and according to espn before the day is over he'd ask her to get a drink. Three times he began sending her techs and they corresponded sporadically for about three weeks. Him complimenting her her responding despite a limited grasp of english july nineteenth on july order shifts boyfriend sensor another selfie she replied with one of her own then porter said you're gorgeous.

He asked like she again. Texted a laugh and said yes adding. You're not married. He responded nope. Which picture do you like. The most wants to see more. This becomes obviously something where you're starting to realize this might not be a source and she kind of cuts off communication with him from the timeframe of july nineteenth to august tenth. He sends sixty two unanswered text messages including photos that get more explicit in nature and on august ninth he and the reporter went chicago. It wrigley field. I think i just saw your so beautiful. The reporter told espn she felt panicky and she hid to void him a day. Later porter's message. I'll be in la this weekend at the best hotel in america.

Puerto responded oh. I'm sorry i will stop. I really apologize. Please let me know if you ever need anything workwise and we need to reiterate that this reporter is not from the united states.

He examines the Pine Tar on his gloves used to help his grip. The situation is not ideal. Key thinks even count plus my advantage plan again. I'm Mark Damn McGuire. He steps back up to the plate. The the pitch comes in wild pine away total junk. Bond Maguire's internal chatter resumes there. We go three balls two strikes. Oh count next one is ball for no way they're. GonNa try me on a full count. McGuire walks for the one hundred and thirty first time here in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the fans boo but club tried to get him out. He didn't pitch around him. He gave a couple pitches to hit and in the end put him on first and then is one of the records he might break this year and that is the all time walk record held by the Babe. That's mark's one hundred and thirty I walk this year which has him slowly closing in on Babe Ruth's record record of one hundred and seventy pig MAC is proud for the first time in weeks got tight recalibrated and saw the game clearly he stopped chasing recent unfortunately two batters later his teammate hits an Infield dribbler and marked reverts to laugh side.
