Storm watch

So despite all the predictions of its strength, Hurricane Patricia basically proved to be over-hyped and comparatively weak. Maybe they should rename it Hurricane Jeb.

Florida State was upset tonight by Georgia Tech  When a game winning potential field goal was blocked and run back. . The Seminoles haven’t been this embarrassed in recent memory without the police being involved.

(my comedy writing friend T.C. coined the perfect term last week after the MSU-Michigan game – a “kick six.”)

A man was arrested today on Treasure Island in San Francisco after a chase that started when he stole a police car. Did he figure they’d never track him in one of those…. ‪#‎cantfixstupid‬

Miami and Clemson players ALMOST got into a pre-game brawl today. Too bad, the brawl might have been more competitive than the game.

Parts of Texas received up to 30 inches of rain Saturday. Not sure who’s crying more, Texans or Californians.

So how much worse does the flooding have to get in Texas before Ted Cruz calls again for federal aid?

As Jeb’s campaign basically seems to be circling the train, maybe it’s time to rewrite conventional wisdom on the Bushes – George H.W. actually looks to be the “smart one.”

Nate Silver says the NBA may reduce pre-season games starting in 2017. The current number is 8. My guess is that most players and fans think 0 would be a good number.

Seven high school football players have now died on the field this year. Waiting for someone to say they should be armed.

Mitt Romney to the Boston Globe this week. “Without Romneycare, I don’t think we would have Obamacare.” You know Obamacare is working when Mitt is back to taking credit.

Matt Drudge is now commenting on Hillary Clinton’s occasional coughs during the 11-hour Benghazi hearings, saying that and her slow speaking, “obviously induced by meds.” were signs of serious health issues. Well, hell then, let’s have a Congressional committee created to see if Hillary is being honest about her health.

R.I.P. Maureen O’Hara, 95, She was the last living star of  “Miracle On 34th Street,” the original black-and-white 1947 one. Best Christmas movie ever. See it this year if you haven’t. Not the colorized version.

    “Miracle on 34th Street” may be your favorite Christmas movie, but mine is “It Happened on Fifth Avenue”. O’Hara’s death at 95 out- shone co-star Natalie Wood’s demise at 43. That event no doubt was brought about by her slovenly personal hygiene: it’s well known she never took a bath or shower – she simply washed up on shore.

    Too bad its not a Mets/Blue Jays World Series. I was really looking forward to Cespedes and Batista meeting at mid-field for the ceremonial bat flip.
