Missing you.

darryl

Former player,  current MLB analyst and all around nice guy Darryl Hamilton is dead, apparently by the hand of his soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend in a murder suicide..  There are no printable words.

 

 

After Charleston, this seemed like it might be the week to move on from gun violence issues to regular snark. And all I can think of now is the online discussions, over the years and after the church shooting, with Darryl Hamilton. One of the best people I’ve been privileged to meet on Facebook . I’d wish as a SF Giants fan for the Dodgers to win the World Series in a minute if it would bring him back. No joke.

 

Darryl Hamilton would at least have liked, and been amused to see this,  Lindsey Graham on Monday today  rethought his positions and called for the Confederate flag’s removal from the South Carolina Capitol grounds.  #thetimestheyareeversoslowlychanging

Mark Sanford, on the Confederate Flag controversy – “That’s opening up Pandora’s box.” Surprised Sanford didn’t have a staffer say the S.C. Rep was unavailable for comment because he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Maybe she wanted to think about it, maybe she wanted to see which way the wind was blowing. But kudos to S.C. Gov Nikki Haley for coming to the right decision.

“It’s time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds. On matters of race, South Carolina has a tough history. We don’t need reminders.”

She added that if the legislature didn’t debate removing the flag this summer, she would call them back for a special session.

Regarding Pete Rose, the OTL timing is odd, just before the All-Star game in Cincinnati. But for all those who say, it didn’t matter if he only bet on his team to win. So imagine you’re a bookie, and Pete bets on the Reds for Friday, and Sunday, but doesn’t bet on Saturday… He doesn’t have to give a reason..

 

#‎Followthemoney‬ Walmart announced Monday that it will remove all Confederate flag merchandise from its stores. One of those few moments I am glad the Charleston terrorist is still alive to see what he has accomplished.

So baseball/softball are on the short list for being added to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Other sports on the list include karate, squash, roller sports, wushu (martial art), sport climbing, surfing and bowling. No this list was not compiled by the Onion.

    Dick Van Patten (1928-2015) has passed away. I guess 86 was enough.

    Travel Industry News: A Chicago bound United Airlines flight from Rome was diverted to Northern Ireland when 42 year old passenger Jeremiah Mathis became disruptive. All he wanted was more nuts. Korean Airlines said they would no longer pursue code sharing on that route with United.
