15-9 in the 8th between Nationals and Rockies. Do you even have to ask if the game is at Coors Field?

Tonight’s game in Denver featured a 15-5 lead for #Nationals in 7th turns into 15-12 win over #Rockies. Maybe time for rule change – 6 run or less lead is Coors Field save?

 

If MLB wants to speed up games maybe they should cancel bottom of 9th when #SFGiants are home. Giants don’t use it anyway.

(Last time the Giants came back when trailing in the 9th was 2015.  Seriously.)

So  SF Giants get just one run against Kershaw after a leadoff double by… Ty Blach? Guess he takes this filling in for Madbum seriously.   Although today the Giants might have missed Bumgarner’s bat more than his arm.

Shouldn’t getting your first major league hit off Clayton Kershaw count double? #ChristianArroyo #SFGiants

10 pts -for Vince Carter & Manu Ginobili. 16 for Tony Parker. On Tim Duncan’s 41th birthday. So w/ Grizzlies & Spurs, tonight WAS a country for old men

In an April of misery for the #SFGiants at least Santiago Casilla blew the save for someone else. #As

So will the Miami baseball team now be known as the “Marlins!”?  #JebBush

(my friend Al Quint says instead of “Let’s Go Marlins” the scoreboard will urge “Please Clap.”)

#Nordstrom is selling jeans with fake mud on them for $425. So at Nordstrom Rack do they just put real mud on jeans & sell them for $200?

Serena Williams said that photo announcing her pregnancy was shared on Snapchat by accident. “On social media, you press the wrong button and… ”
And a lot of us in the clumsier less-high tech generation are smiling.

Apparently three Islamic State militants in northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, Yeah, guess pork really is dangerous

Former ‘Bachelor’ Chris Soules has been arrested for an alleged fatal hit-and-run collision in Iowa last night. And gals, he’s still single.

There is a certain logic in Trump’s picking fights with Canada. At least he knows they won’t nuke us

 

Police say projected 1st round draft pick Gareon Conley from Ohio State has been accused by a woman of raping her in a Cleveland hotel earlier this month.
Conley says he is innocent and has witnesses. And it IS innocent until proven guilty. But just maybe if you’re approaching an NFL draft that might be one of the most important events of your life, it might be a good idea either to stay home or just hang out with friends you know?

Trump during his Holocaust Remembrance speech said “we’ll never be silent, we just won’t, in the face of evil again.”
Of course crickets on the subject of Anne Frank’s family being repeatedly turned down for U.S. refugee visas.

How long until Trump starts accusing any reports on Michael Flynn’s tenure with his campaign and administration as #Fakenews?

#IvankaTrump may be getting booed. But unlike her father she’s actually traveling overseas.

SF judge ruled against Trump’s sanctuary city funding ban. After that “island in the Pacific” comment can’t wait to see what AG Jeff Sessions calls San Francisco.

The World Trade Organization just ruled in Mexico’s favor in a trade dispute over tuna. Anti-WTO Trump tweets in 3.2.1…

New poll shows only 32% of millennials approve of Trump’s performance. Maybe some of them will get mad enough actually to vote next time?

Tennis love and labor?

Serena Williams is back ranked as #1 on the WTA Tour. Or should we say Number 1 1/2?

 

Ben Roethlisberger now says he’s sorry that he stopped listing Findlay, Ohio as his hometown after “Some negative things were said about me by people in this town. I was hurt and I resented that.”
Probably not nearly as much as women he was accused of sexually assaulting resented things.

 

#Dodgers score a run after Derek Law walks Chase Utley w/ .034 batting average. Even Gorkys Hernandez thinks that’s a bad year. #SFGiants.

Anyone remember the last time we heard Duane Kuiper’s home run call for the SF Giants? Me neither.

 Christian Arroyo era in SF has begin. He’ll wear #22. In 1986 a rookie did okay w/ that number. And this team needs thrills.  Heck, this team needed a defibrillator.
Whole Foods says they are going to lower their prices. So are they pre-announcing a Going out of Business sale?
Kenny G played an impromptu concert aboard Delta flight. And millions of Americans changed their minds on never dragging someone off plane.

State Dept removed blog post touting Mar-a-Lago as Winter White House. Trump hasn’t said yet which resort he’s using as Summer White House?

 

#WTF So we may have govt shutdown over border wall money? Maybe Ivanka or Jared can educate Trump on tunnels, planes & boats?

Just wonder what would happen if you told IRS, not sending in my tax payment but Mexico will be covering it for me eventually?

 

So congrats to all those who had Canada in “Who will Trump fight next” bingo.

All these “MAGA” Trump supporters who are so happy about Canadian lumber tariffs do realize it means higher prices for Americans right?

Sorry but anyone bragging his ratings are bigger “than when the World Trade Center came down” is clearly a sick individual. That is all.

 

(Trump yesterday to the AP, on the size of his…. ratings “It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation.”
“It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center — since the World Trade Center came down.”
Another moment when he became Presidential? )

 

 

 

TC with the lumber truck to hell  “DJ has just imposed a 20% tariff on Canadian softwood lumber exported to the US. I totally didn’t expect him to get personal on this issue. Anyways,no tariff on Hardwood Lumber? Sad…”

TKO?

Caleb Brantley, a DT out of Florida, considered a 1st-2nd round pick in NFL draft has been charged with “misdemeanor simple battery” for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious during a fight this month in Gainesville.
Misdemeanor? What do you have to do in Florida for a felony? Kill someone?

You know what kind of year it’s been for #SFGiants when Matt Moore entered last night’s game with 11.74 ERA at Coors and manages to raise it.

As SF Giants limp to a 6-13 start at least maybe they inspire 49ers fans who dream of their team making it to a .333 winning percentage.

And yeah, it’s only April, but who had the Giants starting pitcher with the best ERA as Matt Cain?

Of course, who had the Dbacks dueling it out for the NL West lead with the Rockies?

 

Rockets up 3-1 in their series with the Thunder after 113-109 win. And of course one call never really decides a game.  But James Harden’s end of game push-off might have even been flagged by NFL replacement refs.


Steve Kerr could be out for season. If  Spurs don’t make finals maybe Warriors could borrow Popovich?

So France seeming to prefer the reasonable guy with no experience in elected office. Right about now lots of Americans would take that.  With the emphasis on reasonable.

Trump’s approval rating lowest in over 60 years at this stage of Presidency, at 42% If this keeps up we’re going to need #marchformath

#NorthKorea says they might strike US Aircraft Carrier to show military force. Will they have any better hope of finding it than we have?

Jeff Sessions defends saying “a judge on an island in the Pacific. “Nobody has a sense of humor anymore.”

Says the Attorney General for the President who angrily tweets about SNL skits.

 

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota is the latest to say “Roger Ailes sexually harassed me.”
At this point maybe it would be faster for any woman at Fox who WASN’T sexually harassed to come forward.

Is it May yet?

Who knew T.S. Eliot was a #SFGiants fan? “April is the cruelest month.”

 

Sharks were two minutes away from going up 3-2 & now are out of the playoffs. SF Giants having worst April ever.  Apparently sports gods feel Warriors are enough for Bay Area

SF Giants don’t think Christian Arroyo is ready to be a major league hitter yet. And two-thirds of their starting outfield tonight is Chris Marrero and Gorkys Hernandez. Sigh. Before Span crashed into the wall.

.

And Span didn’t even go dirt bike riding. #SFGiants

Bruce Bochy took 2 games off from #SFGiants because of heart condition. Guessing doctor didn’t approve of him taking that call from #Madbum

At some point during NBA playoffs both Warriors and Cavs will probably have to show up for four quarters.

As a Spurs fan have to hope they make it through to Western Conference finals, not because they have enough stars to match with the Warriors. But because more people really should watch Kawhi Leonard.

The Hawks’ Paul Millsap & the Wizards’ Markieff Morris are trash-talking each other during the playoffs. And many casual NBA fans are going “who and who?”

Happy #EarthDay Waiting for the GOP rebuttal.

So someday will we tell our children that we remember when science used to be nonpartisan. #marchforscience

Sign seen at #marchforscience “Trump. – No Science. No Rogaine. No Hair.”

United Airlines has had one of the rougher months for U.S airlines in public relations history. American Airlines “Hold my beer.”

Report says more than 8,600 US brick & mortar stores will close their doors in 2017. Where’s Trump tweet taking credit? #jobsjobsjobs!

 

Trump to hold rally night of White House Correspondents Dinner. Fine, no one cover it. What happens if a Trump rants in a forest…?

Trump, personally giving out a Purple Heart today  “Tremendous, tremendous job, congratulations.”    This is the same man who said last August.  “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.”

Maybe just a BIT unclear on the concept?

 

From Marc Ragovin  “Following the Predators’ sweep, many Blackhawks fans were seen being taken away kicking and screaming from the United Center.”

Madbummed.

Well, not the smartest thing in the world to be riding a dirt bike on an off-day.  On the other hand, how many players get hurt doing every day things… or falling down the dugout steps.  Paging Jeremy Affeldt.

Give  Madbum credit for not claiming to have been washing his truck.

Clearly he should have stuck to riding horses. Aren’t there stables in Denver?

If baseball wants to speed up game maybe there should be a sign like IBB sign for hitters like Gorkys Hernandez at this point –  “Automatic out”. #SFGiants

 

Since it just might be a “misery loves company” year for #SFGiants, Sergio Romo in relief for LA just balked in go ahead run for Dbacks.  And gave up 5 earned runs in a third of an inning.

Well on a brighter note for #SFGiants not like they were scoring any runs for Bumgarner anyway. Maybe they will for Ty Blach.

Massive #poweroutage in San Francisco. But this time it’s not the #SFGiants. They are out of town in Denver.

Russell Westbrook was fined $15,000 for saying in a postgame news conference. “I don’t give a f— about my line. We lost.”
Wow. $15,000.  Whatever  happened in the NBA to the dollar jar?

#Blackhawks being swept in four games by the #8 seed #Predators now means most embarrassing thing in Chicago is no longer United Airlines.

 

An air  marshal forgot her gun in lavatory on US flight. Passenger turned it in.   Once again, USA has much more to fear from stupidity than terrorism.

Jeff Sessions, backtracking on Hawaii slam, says he thinks state is “fabulous” place.  Fabulous?  Hmm, enough to question the AG’s sexual orientation?

United missed deadline for answering questions from senators about dragging incident. Will they blame weather, mechnical or “operations”

In Germany, a terrorist who bombed Dortmund soccer team bus was trying to make money on the team’s shares falling after the attack. And he was going to blame it on Muslims.
So can we start cracking down on capitalist extremists?

Jason Chaffetz on rumors he might leave Congress before his term is up “I’ll take a little bit of time to sort out. I’d be thrilled to have a television relationship. ..”
Hmm, the Chaffetz Factor?

Apparently Trump’s comment “Korea used to be a part of China,” has not won him friends in South Korea. College student Ahn Hong-seok, if Trump “is a person capable of becoming a president, I think he should not distort the precious history of another country.”
If it makes them feel any better, Trump also distorts the “precious history” of his own country.

Biggest threat to Democrats in 2018 and 2020 is not the GOP. It’s party infighting. That is all.

Bad seed?

The Predators are the 1st #8 seed ever in pro sports to sweep #1 seed.  So will someone in Nashville at least write a country song about the Chicago Blackhawks?

 

The Indiana Pacers blew a 26 point lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 3 of their playoff series tonight.  Wonder if they got sympathy call from the Atlanta Falcons.

One of the NFL London games this year will be Browns vs Vikings. Yet again, US disrespects Britain in not sending over professional teams.

SFGiants were off today. Which means their left fielders got about  as many base hits as on a game day.

QB DeShone Kizer, on his future in the NFL “Imagine taking Brady’s intellect and Brady’s preparation and putting it on a guy with Cam Newton’s body. Why can’t I be the greatest?”
Well, just maybe you might be held back by that 10 cent head?

LB Reuben Foster from Alabama said today that at the NFL combine he tested positive for a diluted urine sample, which is considered a positive test of the league’s substance abuse policy.
Foster said it was because he was trying to rehydrate himself after getting food poisoning.
Just once want to hear someone say, “I got caught, I’m sorry.”

Actually if Berkeley protesters really want to upset AnnCoulter the thing to do is IGNORE HER.

US is now trying to arrest Julian Assange. Well, sure, now that Wikileaks has served its purpose with Hillary.

Trump just called #Pavarotti “a good friend of mine.” This Presidency is turning into a Monty Python sketch. “Not dead, sleeping…”

Just wondering, would Trump be quite as sanguine about North Korea potentially launching nuclear missile if he had homes on West Coast?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions “amazed judge on an island in Pacific” can stop Trump’s travel ban. Yeah, the foreign country where Obama was born #cantfixstupid

 

Just guessing that #JeffSessions doesn’t have any vacations in Hawaii planned?

CNN reports that Bill O’Reilly will be paid “tens of millions of dollars” as he exits Fox News because of a “sizable safety net” in his contract. So he’ll be able to settle his future sexual harassment lawsuits.

Mike Huckabee, during an interview complaining about the media: “You know there’s three things you can’t do. You can’t spit into the wind, you can’t climb a ladder leaning toward you or kiss a woman leaning away from you.”
Uh, sir, you are married. Why would you be talking about kissing women? #familyvalues

The greatest love of all.

Let’s be real, Fox News is not firing Bill O’Reilly for harassing women. They are firing him because advertisers left.

 

So far NBA playoffs 1st round has so little drama seems only logical function of including 16 teams is television $$$.   Oops, never mind.

A’s new 2017 slogan “Rooted in Oakland.” With their plumbing issues at the Coliseum maybe it should be “Roto-Rooted in Oakland.”

Serena Williams expecting a baby in August, meaning she was pregnant when she won Australian Open in late January.  Four words: Weaker sex my ass.

Aaron Hernandez apparently hanged himself in his jail cell. A sad waste, but hard to be sad he’s gone.

Tom Brady skipped Wednesday’s  Patriots White House visit to attend to “personal family matters.” Meaning Gisele wouldn’t speak to him if he goes?

Would accuse #SFGiants offense of being criminally bad, but case might be dismissed for insufficient evidence.

 

Sorry, when so many MLB pitchers who face #SFGiants pitch best game of season/career maybe it’s not just their stuff. #offensewhatoffense?

 

 

Marshmallow Peeps 1/2 price after Easter. Shouldn’t stores wait to put Peeps on sale until they are near their expiration date in 2100?

Bill O’Reilly met the Pope Wednesday in Rome. Well, at least His Holiness is one person in a skirt we know O’Reilly won’t grope.

UC Berkeley called off an Ann Coulter speech due to worries about potential violence, but she and the students who invited her said she’ll come anyone and “speak on or off campus.”
Now, I’m for free speech, even in this case.
But before we allow Coulter to take the moral high ground thinking just maybe a woman who doesn’t want violence shouldn’t say things like “N Korea will make nuke capable of hitting Seattle! Situation will be dire as soon as they can hit a city worth saving.”

Trump supported O’Reilly, but Bill is still out. So where are the tweets slamming #FakeNews Fox News?

Trump praises Patriots & slams “the good ol’ pundits, God they’re wrong a lot, huh?” Uh, actually pundits all expected New England to win.

From my funny friend Alex Kaseberg  “Tom Brady decided to skip the White House Super Bowl winner ceremony. It’s not a big deal. Brady has won five Super Bowls. He’s been to the White House more than Melania Trump.”
