Countdown to kickoffs.

Kansas City fans – We hope Mahomes can end our 49 year Super Bowl drought.
Boston fans – We really are the underdogs, promise. In fact, they should deflate our footballs to make it more fair.
New Orleans fans – Sorry, what, we can’t hear you? Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat!
Los Angeles fans – Is there a big game this weekend? Is Lebron back?

Weather forecast in Kansas City this Sunday night for the Chiefs Patriots game has improved from near zero to temperatures in the 20s. Gosh, by Midwest winter standards that’s practically shorts weather.

Another Southwest plane slid off the runway today. Fortunately no injuries but never thought “Wanna Get Away” meant getting off the tarmac.

Apparently 376 Central Americans have just requested asylum after crossing US border in Arizona through tunnels. So yeah, about that wall.

Over 10,000 furloughed federal employees have now applied for food stamps. And sadly some of them are probably at the US Dept of Agriculture that oversees food stamps.

School where Karen Pence teaches doesn’t just forbid LBGT students, they reserve “right to expel student if they, their parents, or someone in their household engages in homosexual or bisexual activity, or supports or condones that behavior.” “Supports or condones that behavior?” What, like playing Elton John music?”

Got it, so Donald Trump only hires “the best people” but they become weak and stupid liars after they quit or he fires them.

New Trump rule. “Under no circumstances during a government shutdown will any government owned, rented, leased or chartered aircraft support any Congressional delegation, without the express written approval of the White House Chief of Staff.”

But FLOTUS needing a spa weekend, THAT’s essential.

Why Saturday for Trump important announcement? Does he know that even his cult member don’t want their football games interrupted? Or is he trying to end shutdown so Melania can avoid criticism when she takes a government plane back from her Florida spa weekend.

Democrats have now passed 9 separate bills to open government. Just saying.

Your reminder that the 9 bills Democrats have passed to open the government are almost the same bills the GOP-led Senate passed UNANIMOUSLY before Christmas.

DeMarcus Cousins to join Golden State Warriors this weeekend. Just in time to heat up the NBA Preseason.

 

Washington Wizards beat the NY Knicks Thursday in London 101-100.
As if Britain doesn’t have enough to worry about with Brexit issues think NBA could have sent them two real professional teams?

Phil Mickelson, 48, shot a 12-under 60 in the Desert Classic Thursday tying his career low. Hope this is a good omen for that youngster Drew Brees, 40 on Sunday.

Does Michael Cohen have good security and a food taster? Asking for a country.

Marriott is changing the name of their frequent guest programs to “Bonvoy.” “Bonvoy?”
And just think, someone got paid millions of dollars to come up with that….

 

As the Trump shutdown continues, one group not asking why Nancy Pelosi isn’t giving in to appease Donald is women who’ve ever had a toddler. (Because we know – give into one tantrum, and worse ones follow.

 

On the same day Trump canceled Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation trip to Afghanistan,  he sent Melania in an Air Force Jet to Mar-A-Lago.

 

That last line doesn’t even need a punchline. But presumably with cake for local residents to eat?

 

That moment when Donald Trump’s personal attorney reportedly paying to rig pools in Trump’s favor is only 2nd biggest bombshell story involving Michael Cohen today.

 

Sigh, posted on Twitter that Nancy Pelosi couldn’t go commercial as a government employee because no US airliner flies to Kabul.
Some MAGAer snarkily sent me a screen shot showing Emirates Airline flights. Right, no US airline, which government employees are supposed to take. But hey, why let laws get in the way of supporting a good tantrum.

 

 

I’m so old I remember waking up and not even giving a thought to what insanity President of the United States had done already this morning….

Masters scholar athletes?

Now former Alabama and Texas quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Shane Buechele are the latest to have decided to enter the graduate transfer portal, which would allow them to play for their new universities next season.

Just once, I’d love to hear one of these guys announce what in graduate program they’re supposedly going to study.

-.

New Dodgers President of Business Enterprise Tucker Kain has some big ideas – including “night clubs and sports bars inside Dodger Stadium.”
Well, it might be one way to get fans to stay past the 7th inning.

Bill Belichick says he’s not concerned about the freezing weather expected in Kansas City for AFC championship. Well, and even if Patriots HAD played well enough for #1 seed, forecast is for snow and sleet in Boston this Sunday.

Interim Michigan State President John Engler was forced to say he’ll resign today after telling Detroit News that Nassar’s victims had been in the “spotlight” & are “still enjoying that moment at times, you know, the awards & recognition.”
How long until Engler gets offered a job in Trump White House?

Trump said he bought 1,000 hamburgers for Clemson football team, White House said it was more like 300. Does this mean he’s got 700 burgers stored in fridge to survive a long shutdown?

Possible major flooding expected with storms in California over next two days. How long until Donald Trump somehow blames the state for it?

 

Note to SF Bay Area drivers. Rushing across the train tracks as signals start flashing and crossing arms start coming down is never smart. Doing that when it’s raining hard with slick roads is Darwin Award material.

Trump tweets today that “radical Democrats are the party of open borders and crime” while his cult members in Senate vote against sanctions on criminal Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. #NotTheOnion

 

So with SOTU being possibly delayed does that mean White House can stop work on translating it from the original Russian?

Apparently Chris Christie’s new book eviscerates Jared Kushner. But really, did Jared ever think the man who shut down a bridge over a perceived slight would forget being kicked out of a role in Trump administration?
Womp womp.

 

 

We cannot find him in the House.
We cannot find him with his spouse.
We cannot find him in a chair
We cannot find him anywhere
#WheresMitch.

The Eagle has landed?

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said yesterday “Carson Wentz is the quarterback going forward.” Guessing Wentz might be forgiven for not being too unhappy New Orleans Saints came to beat Philadelphia last week?

Brandon Wimbush is transferring from Notre Dame to UCF “I am excited to announce that UCF has granted me an awesome opportunity to play my last year of collegiate football for their great University.”
Well, at least he isn’t even pretending it’s about academics.

So do hamberders go well with covfefe?

The official White House story is that Trump fed the Clemson team fast food because of the shutdown. Gosh, if there were only a hotel near the White House where Trump knew the catering staff….

British Parliament rejects PM Theresa May’s Brexit deal with the European Union – 432 votes to 202
Gosh, who knew a country could get a vote so wrong?

So maybe Britain can just do a mulligan and have the whole country revote on Brexit?
Millions of Americans wish they could do the same with 2016.

This 2020 election cycle is going to be tough for Donald Trump. So many women running for President, so little time to think of childish nicknames for them all.

Open note to IRS workers, if Donald Trump calls you back to work without pay it might be an understandable error to accidentally release his tax returns.

Surest sign things are not going well for Donald Trump? Fox News has headlines about another caravan again.

Historically Presidents have loved to visit children’s classrooms. Guess we can be sure though Donald Trump won’t visit the new school where Karen Pence will teach,  which bans LGBTs.  They don’t allow anyone guilty of “moral misconduct” – including “heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex).”

Seriously, how hard would it be for Donald Trump to end the shutdown, declare he will privately fund the wall as a profit making operation and then lie about it being done?

 

From Marc Ragovin  “Now that Steve King has been stripped of his committee seats, he will probably announce his retirement to spend more time with his klan … I mean clan.”

Tom Brady  – “I know everyone thinks we suck “I know everyone thinks we suck and, you know, can’t win any games.”
Not quite Tom, everyone knows the Patriots can win football games. Most of them still think you guys suck. #cheaters

As Trump buys fast food for Clemson players, have to wonder, how many restaurants in DC are hurting big time now because furloughed federal workers aren’t eating lunch or stopping by after work?

 

A tanker carrying 20 TONS of liquid chocolate overturned near Flagstaff today, spilling its contents over the highway. All we need is a truck full of chilis for the world’s biggest mole party.

While Trump spoke in New Orleans today, originally he was confused and said he wsa going to Nashville. They both start with N. What’s the problem?

Trump praised Saints once he figured out he was in New Orleans & not Tennessee. Guess no one told Donald this comment last season about him from Sean Payton “I think we need a little more wisdom in that office. Seems like every time he’s opening his mouth, it’s something that is dividing our country & not pulling us together.”

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who criticizes socialized medicine as much as anyone in Congress,, will travel to Ontario, Canada later this month to get hernia surgery.    Is this a stealth move to try to get Canada to build a wall to keep him there?

 

While Donald Trump rants about “Angel moms” & falsely limits them to moms whose children were killed by undocumented immigrants, your reminder he has still said NOTHING about police officer #NatalieCorona, 23, from a Mexican immigrant family, murdered by a white man.

 

When asked to comment on Steve King racist remarks, Donald Trump responded “I haven’t been following it.”
Translation: the story hasn’t been covered on “Fox and Friends.”

Donald Trump, ignoring his merit-based immigration claims from the past today to farmers – “people aren’t going to come, except for the people we want to come, because we want to take people in to help our farmers.”
Uh, one of the people he used as a racist dog whistle last fall was the killer of Mollie Tibbetts, who had been a reliable  and good – albeit undocumented – immigrant worker for four years in Iowa.

Former Trump campaign advisor, Barry Bennett who has a political consulting firm with Corey Lewandowski, about furloughed workers “It’s inconvenient that they’re not getting paid. But it’s for time they’re not even going into the office.”
So the question of the day “Evil? Or just amoral?”

 

Better marching in late than never?

Today’s 14-point New Orleans Saints comeback was the largest in the team’s playoff history. Of course, last year in Minnesota coming back from 17-0 would have been the record. Not, not still bitter.

Much talk of how Saints might have drafted Mahomes if KC hadn’t.   Yeah, Patrick was on the Saints raider. Right below the guy Sean Payton did draft, and said he wanted more – Marshon Lattimore.

Anyone else noticed time never goes as slowly as it does when your team has a 4th quarter lead.

As for the Chargers against Patriots, well, at least they helped cover the over.

Not a Cowboys fan, but Terrell Owens calling out coach Jason Garrett as “not the answer” after their loss to Rams yesterday.
Because TO knows all about winning a Super Bowl?

Jeanine Pirro asked Trump if he ever worked for Russia.
“I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked.”

Uh, wasn’t there a possible one word answer?

Lots of snow in DC. Hope it doesn’t shut down the government.

A 21-year-old man playing hide-and-seek in an abandoned building in Detroit with friends died last night when he ran to hide and fell down an elevator shaft.
Let me guess, alcohol might have been involved. #DarwinAward

Lindsey Graham complaining about New York Times story on alleged FBI probe of Donald Trump after he fired Comey, “That story came from somebody who leaked it with an agenda.”
That’s like blaming Deep Throat for Watergate

Now Trump tweeting that “Border is eventually going to be militarized and defended or the United States, as we have known it, is going to cease to exist.”
Uh, in many ways the United States, as we have known it, has ceased to exist since Donald moved into White House.
I miss having a President.

More from Trump tweet storm “Best line in the Elizabeth Warren beer catastrophe is, to her husband, “Thank you for being here. I’m glad you’re here” It’s their house, he’s supposed to be there!”
Uh, where’s Melanie?  (sic)

And the doinks just keep on coming

Did Adam Vinatieri suddenly get 10 years older in the past week?

 

Lawrence Taylor reportedly sent prostitutes to his opponents’ hotel rooms before big games

Thinking on a more PG level  Saints  fans should be hospitable hosts and send King Cakes to Eagles’ hotel rooms tonight. Lots of big King Cakes with gooey icing, maybe pecan and cream-cheese filled too.

Okay, who had Colts scoring first TD in 2nd quarter, before they had a 1st down?

And is there a football magnet on the goal posts this year?

So the Arizona Cardinals just hired Kliff Kingsbury, who couldn’t win at Texas Tech with Patrick Mahomes?

Alabama sophomore DE LaBryan Ray was arrested last night in Tuscaloosa for alleged public intoxication. Just how drunk do you have to be as a Crimson Tide player to be arrested in Alabama for it?0And so does Putin claim Trump as a dependent on his tax returns?

If Mitch McConnell would simply allow Senate to VOTE on the same bill they passed unanimously in December, then we’d at least know what side all Senators are on with the shutdown.

Five killed so far in Winter Storm Gia crashes in Kansas and Missouri. By Trump logic should the states be blamed for not clearing the roads and letting people drive in the snow?

At times like this with bombshells about Trump rvealed by Washington Post and NY Times, it is important to remember that Barack Obama once wore a tan suit.

Trump may have gotten rid of records from his private meeting with Russia’s leader. But I’ll bet Putin kept his.

 

 

California police officer Ronil Singh, 33, fatally shot by an illegal immigrant, tweeted about and eulogized repeatedly by Donald Trump.
Natalie Corona, 23, fatally shot by a white man with a battery conviction, and crickets.
Sad, and pathetic.
