Second but we try harder.

Stanford now has four second place finishes in the Heisman in seven years. Imagine what the results might be if the Cardinal actually played games when most Americans were awake.

(Who are we kidding?  If Stanford athletes wanted Heisman trophies and were really that smart, they’d have all signed with SEC teams.)

 

Christian McCaffrey may not have won the Heisman, but the 8pm EST show means more Americans probably saw him tonight than during Stanford’s late night games.

Other than die-hard fans, the people who are most unhappy about the end of the Warriors’ streak have to be advertisers for the Golden State-Cleveland game on Christmas Day.

While most of the NBA world was focused on the Warriors’ first loss of the season, meanwhile the San Antonio Spurs held the Atlanta Hawks to 25 points in the 1st half. 25 points in a half? The New Orleans Saints defense would be okay with that.

The Philadelphia 76ers signed coach Brett Brown, 38-150, to a contract extension. Wow. Hard to believe that with that kind of record someone can get re-hired. Re-elected, maybe.

A new video shows FSU QB Sean Maguire throwing a football over the stadium wall from the parking lot. Well, the 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick could potentially do that too, the only question would be if he might completely miss the stadium.

Riverside Mall in Hackensack, New Jersey mall was evacuated this afternoon after a bomb threat. Once police let everyone back inside wonder which store will be the first to have a “bomb threat recovery” sale?”

Ted Cruz, in a leaked statement about Trump and Carson said : “Who am I comfortable having their finger on the button? Now that’s a question of strength, but it’s also a question of judgment.”
Fair enough, but one might ask, do we want someone’s finger on the button who has not only alienated those in the opposition party, but also in his own?

 

Loring Wirbel, the leader of Colorado’s ACLU chapter posted on his personal FB page about Trump “If you are voting for him. I will have to shoot you before election day.” Wirbel stepped down after the predictable outrage. But had he only framed it as a gun rights issue….

President Obama declined a petition signed by over 100,000 people to make the Muslim holy days of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr federal holidays, The White House statement noted that states,cities and school districts can set their own holidays, and that federal law already requires most employers to make religious accommodations to employees to allow them to celebrate religious observances.
It’s going to take some work for the GOP Presidential candidates to point out this time what Obama did was wrong.

Donald Trump’s latest is calling Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts “disgraceful” and a “disappointment.” Well, guess the Donald doesn’t think winning the Presidency will require winning Florida..
