Long gone

Nothing against Sacramento but when someone hits a home run 464 feet to right center right handed, at AT&T Park in SF, guessing that someone has no intention of moving back there. #MacWilliamson #SFGiants

Mac Williamson is a graduate of Wake Forest.  Actually turned down being drafted by Red Sox to return for senior year.  As a Spurs fan am predisposed to be fond of four-year Demon-Deacons.  (Tim Duncan.)


SFGiants waited until April 23 to play their first game outside of the West.  Even interleague games were against Seattle and Anaheim.  Now I KNOW a computer does these early season schedules. But just maybe, especially after all these early season “snow outs”   someone should program a little climate change into the computer?

That 21 pitch Brandon Belt AB Sunday lasted longer than some celebrity marriages.

 

Martha Karolyi doesn’t feel she should be held responsible for Nassar’s actions. This is a woman with her husband who taught little girls that the team and ranch were more important than your biological family?

 

Congrats to Will and Kate on the birth of their third child.  It’s a small good thing in the universe, but in the British line of succession, Princess Charlotte now gets to stay ahead of her new baby brother. #progress

Waffle House hero James Shaw, Jr,  has also started a Go Fund Me campaign that has raised over $50,000 for victims’ families. He works for AT&T in Nashville. Not sure what Shaw does for them, but guessing he deservesld use a promotion, and a raise.

Now that they have Waffle House shooting suspect in custody can they also arrest his father who admitted giving him back his guns?

With the new Trump Giuliani “bromance” why should anyone doubt that two men with 6 marriages between them will stay loyal to each other?

Rand Paul performs usual routine of “most-principled-man-alive” until he isn’t, do get some idea of why his neighbor felt need to jump him.

So would Press Secretary Sanders like to explain how she thinks Democrats opposing Trump hate their country, but when GOP opposed Obama on EVERYTHING they were just being good patriots or something?

US Senator Ted Cruz bringing up the incident in Toronto on Fox News now: “We obviously don’t know the details yet, but it underscores what a dangerous world we’re in…This is a perilous time… We need a strong, steady hand as secretary of state”
Pompeo is a “strong, steady hand” like Ted Cruz is Mr. Congeniality.

Man who ended up in White House in part because Americans considered Hillary’s private email server a security risk is now apparently calling friends & advisors on his personal cell phone. #WTF?

 

George H.W. Bush in intensive care.  And Barbara is looking down saying “Men! You can’t even take care of yourself for a few DAYS without me!”

 

Awful day in Toronto, one of the world’s best cities. Increasingly looking like the attack WASN’T terrorism though. Especially as Trump isn’t tweeting about it.

When tragedies strike US, @JustinTrudeau always quick to respond with kindness on social media. Today after Toronto attack, crickets from @realDonaldTrump.
As an American, I apologize for our president.
Je suis Americain et je m’excuse pour notre président.

The sound of how many hands clapping?

A’s lefty Sean Manaea pitched a no-hitter against Red Sox. Thank goodness for visiting Boston fans which meant more than 500 people saw it.

Doesn’t look like Cleveland’s year. But Pacers guard Lance Stephenson said he thinks Cavs are “going to start panicking” if they get down 3-1…? Not exactly a student of NBA history.

Derek Jeter, asked if he expects the Marlins to contend  “”I do. I do, If I don’t believe with the … in the players that we have on the field, who’s going to believe in them?”
Uh, maybe their moms?  Well, some of their moms anyway.
Pelicans swept the Blazers, Saints projected to win NFC South.  New Orleans sports fans hope this isn’t a sign of the apocalypse.

Happy Earth Day. Waiting for the GOP rebuttal.

So did Utah Republicans just basically tell Mitt Romney to stay home and knit?

A reminder about Trump’s tweet rant Saturday, he was doing all of it while he was supposedly watching Barbara Bush’s funeral. #soPresidential

The single best thing Trump ever did for Barbara Bush was improve her oldest son’s reputation by comparison.

 

Guess nobody told Trump that it was his own side that released Comey memos?

Trump talking about Mar-A-Lago as the “Southern White House.” Uh, in the US there is no Southern White House.  Not since 1865.

What’s next, Mar-A-Lago flying the Confederate flag?

If Mar-A-Lago is the “Southern White House” how come we can’t all apply for the free public tours?

 

Waffle House killer  killer is apparently a white man. So he has to be mentally ill and not a terrorist.

At time of posting, waiting for #thoughtsandprayers from Trump over Waffle House shooting..
GUARANTEE he’d have tweeted about if if shooter were Muslim or an immigrant.

 

 

Amazed #WaffleHouse shooter is still at large. Not that someone in Tennessee would stand out with an AR15. But you’d think they’d call cops fast on a man who was running around mostly naked.

Happy 4-20 day

But really, shouldn’t Happy 4-20 day wishes always properly be wished on the 21st?

 

SF Giants have become a run scoring machine in the Mac Williamson era?

 

(As Henry Schulman pointed out, they scored 10 % of their runs so far – for the YEAR – in one inning today.)

 

Until yesterday, figured Gregg Popovich should have serious consideration for @NBA coach of year for all he’d had to overcome this year with the team. Had no idea….

And this, btw, is worth a read, seriously.

 –

So anyone else assume that when @Twitter goes down for a while that Trump must have broken it?

On #NationalSchoolWalkoutDay would GOP care to state again how they feel students and teachers should be armed?

Forget #IKEA robots, is there a robot that can help parents figure out the toys they buy for their kids? Asking for a country with 8 months notice until Christmas.

 · 

Remember those innocent days when the worst we had to explain to our kids about President and sex was a blow job? #bookers#peetape#goldenshowers

 · 

Well, you know, who could respect a woman who stayed with a cheating husband? #misogyny

 Trouble with hiring a lawyer who has absolutely no scruples about saving you your ass, is that he’s going to apply the same standards to saving his own. #MichaelCohen  

If Mueller wants to confirm Trump spent a night at Moscow Ritz, just get travel writer to say how much more opulent & beautiful it is than any Trump hotel. Tweet saying ‘It is NOT. #FakeNews”  should take about 2 minutes.

 

“Special Council?” As much as Barbara Bush believed in literacy, maybe this @RealDonaldTrump Presidency really killed her?

So is Wendy Wasserman Schultz related to Adele Dazeem?

CDC has warned Americans to stop eating romaine lettuce over possible E-Coli fears. So shouldn’t Trump keep romaine on Mar-A-Lago menu to prove that the CDC is a job-killing regulator that needs spending cuts?

RIP Erin.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s wife Erin passed away today. Nothing funny about this. So sad.

We always knew Popovich sees the big picture beyond sports. Apparently his wife was ill for a long time. but no complaints, no excuses. Hope at least now Pop knows how much he is loved and admired in and beyond NBA.

 

Yeah, tell me we don’t need a stronger word than deplorable….. Happened to read the SF Chronicle online story on death of Erin Popovich. And the FIRST comment, “Gregg Popovich has yet to offer public comment.” “As expected Pop continues to be too busy to even acknowledge the death of his wife. More concerned about attacking our President..’.”
Maybe six words ‘Sad excuse for a human being.”

 

 

As #SFGiants fan I’ve almost forgotten what a “save situation” was.  Giants apparently missed them so much they ended up having two of them.  And almost blowing both.

So #SFGiants are keeping #macwilliamson in Sacramento because they aren’t sure he can hit major league pitching. Well, they are sure 2018 team these days can’t.

Orrin Hatch asks what there were “10 babies on the floor of the Senate?”. Well if you leave out a little detail like chronological age there are a lot more than 10 babies on floor of Senate. Starting with Mitch McConnell.

And we wonder how Senators get their spineless reputations.    After Senate deadlocked 49-49 for about an hour Wednesday on a vote to break a filibuster of James Bridenstine, who has no management experience and doesn’t believe in Climate Change,  to be next head of NASA,  Jeff Flake returned to Senate floor and switched to “yes..”  Thoughts and prayers?

The entire island of Puerto Rico has just lost power. I missed the Trump tweet taking credit.

Trump is so proud of golfing with Japan PM Shinzo Abe but maybe he can ask Abe’s advice on Puerto Rico power situation. Since Japan is, you know, a country of islands.

Trump does realize that tweeting a picture with Prime Minister of Japan at Trump International Golf Club and tagging it officially  with Department of State  and White House hash tags is a crime?  #Emoluments

Blame Canada.

Toronto Raptors might be the best NBA team most Americans have barely heard of…

Police raided FSU QB Deondre Francois’s Tallahassee apartment on a tip he was selling pot, but they found less than an ounce of marijuana. Wonder how long until Francois transfers to Colorado or Washington?

Anthony Rizzo says the baseball season is too long. Jeez, get a team in the postseason for a few years and they turn into snowflakes. @cubs

Maybe if Mueller really wants to keep his job he can tell Trump that on the day he is fired an associate will release the pee tape.

C’mon Nikki Haley, come over to anti-Trump dark side. We have cookies. And can’t wait to read your resignation letter ending “Bless your heart.”

Starbucks is going to close its 8,000 US company-owned stores for one afternoon to education employees about racial bias. So now will an entirely new group #BoycottStarbucks?

So I know #bustohell jokes are inappropriate now but if I die in a freak airline accident I hereby give all my friends & family permission to make #airplanetohell joke. #Southwest

RIP Barbara Bush. After she stopped medical intervention she was still sipping bourbon. We all should go out with such style.

 

Remember that Barbara Bush had no problem making a rude comment about Geraldine Ferraro. Wish I could have heard what she said privately about @realDonaldTrump.

 

A fun Barbara Bush story back when Jenna Bush was getting into relatively mild but regular trouble.   Jenna in an interview “I’m known around the family as Grandma’s revenge on George.”

 

Trump started out this am ranting about Stormy Elliott.  At least @realDonaldTrump didn’t tweet this morning that #BarbaraBush“wouldn’t have been his first choice?

Trump also tweeting about the advantages of online retailers not collecting sales tax.  The Trump Store only collects sales tax from buyers in two states.

So do they have something on Mitch McConnell, or is he just a loathsome toad for the fun of it?

Now that it’s April 17

We are finally within two MONTHS of a NBA finals potential game seven, scheduled for Jun 17, 2018.  And they say the baseball season is too long.

So will Cooperstown ask for the broken handle of Bryce Harper’s bat?

(for those who didn’t see, he hit a ball, broke his bat, and it went for a 400 plus foot home run.)

Washington Post profiled some unhappy mostly rural Texas voters who are unhappy with Gregg Popovich’s political outspokenness and attacks on Trump. They say some of them can no longer be Spurs fans. Now, where’s the article on all the more liberal fans who have been listening to Pop and are BIGGER, or even first time Spurs fans.

Bad enough that a Canadian team hasn’t won the Stanley Cup in forever.  But now one of the league’s best team’s is an expansion team in…. Las Vegas. #insulttoinjury

A’s are giving away free tickets to Tuesday’s game. How bad will it get before they offer to PAY fans to show up?

Manager of Philadelphia Starbucks who called cops on black men reported “no longer works” at location. Have they accepted a job at Fox News cafeteria?

So now Sean Hannity turns out to be a Michael Cohen client…. We really are going to have a nationwide popcorn shortage.

So yeah, don’t we all expect attorney client privilege from someone who isn’t our lawyer? #SeanHannity

So now it’s Nikki Haley who’s been thrown under the Trump bus with @realDonaldTrump contradicting her sanctions announcement yesterday. Damn, I didn’t have her in Resignation Bingo.

If you’re still supporting Trump and Hannity right now presume you’ll be okay if a Democratic President and Rachel @maddow behave the same way in future?

 

 

If someone came to a major studio with a movie script that paralleled events in @realDonaldTrump administration they’d have been told to come back with something more realistic.

Bigliest sexy?

Bartolo Colon, 44, took a perfect game into the 8th inning Sunday against the Houston Astros.   Like Tom Brady, it must be that hard-core fitness regime that keeps him ageless?

Of course, many might think that watching Colon will dispel the rumor of baseball players being true athletes once and for all.

 

So the Spurs got blown out in game 1 because they are missing their superstar.  What was Cavs excuse?

Wonder if Cavs coach  Tyronn Lue will have a recurrence of whatever illness caused him to step away from the team in March?

 

23 1/2 inches of snow in Green Bay, Wisconsin, 2nd-heaviest snowstorm of all time, 27 inches of rain in 24 hours in Kauai. But no, we don’t have climate change….

Whatever you think of the Bush presidents, they both married up. Wishing the best for Barbara Bush.

 

It’s not an “either-or” question – America doesn’t have to respect Trump OR Comey.

No response from yet on So staff must have done a better job than usual of hiding his phone.

So did Trump use #MissionAccomplished as a dig at W? Or is he really so clueless he has no idea what Americans now think that means?

Since Trump may be at Mar-A-Lago all week is there any way someone can give America a break by cutting the TV cable?

Trump’s campaign committee reportedly spent $3.9 million that Trump’s committee spent in the first quarter of 2018,  and more than $834,000  of that went to eight law firms and the Trump Corp. for legal fees,  according to the FEC.

Well, at least it’s “jobs! jobs! jobs!” for lawyers.

 

Remember when weirdest story involving a former FBI director was J. Edgar Hoover’s rumored cross-dressing?
