To bury and to praise him

Nice statement from President Obama today: ‘Muhammad Ali was The Greatest. Period. If you just asked him, he’d tell you.
But what made The Champ the greatest – what truly separated him from everyone else – is that everyone else would tell you pretty much the same thing.”

So maybe if Trump isn’t a a complete fraud it’s time to test the man for severe memory impairment. The Donald quickly praised Ali last night, but in December after the President criticized his proposed ban Trump tweeted out “Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who?”.

 

Here’s a thought about Trump’s praise of Ali after saying there were no Muslim sports stars. Maybe he doesn’t know Muhammad Ali was a Muslim. ‪#‎heswrongaboutmosteverythingelse‬

 

Really boggles the mind to imagine what it would have been like if ‪#‎MuhammadAli‬ at his peak in a social media age? ‪#‎mostfollowersofalltime‬

 

Ads on the ‪#‎MLB‬ “Game of the Week” telling us to go to Hooters for the food. Like old days of reading Playboy for the articles. ‪#‎SFvsSTL‬

You start seeing one of the problems for the Cavaliers. A SF Chronicle headline “Kerr has the magic touch; James searching.” The Warriors have a good team AND a real coach

 

Jeff Samardzija didn’t end up having a good day for the SF Giants,  giving up 4 home runs in what seemed like about two minutes. But he did get a single and an RBI. Fox announcers seemed shocked. Clearly they aren’t paying attention. ‪#‎Pitcherswhorake‬

James Shields was traded to the White Sox.  He was a disappointment with the Padres.But being fair, it’s hard to live up to the nickname “Big Game Shields” when your team has no big games.

 

Canada is changing a line in their national anthem from “in all thy sons command” to “in all of us command.” Why? As Justin Trudeau recently said, “It’s 2016.” ‪#‎IblameObama‬ ‪#‎IblameTrudeau‬

Southwest. already the largest airline in terms of passengers beginning or ending their trip in the SF Bay Area, is adding nine more Oakland flights tomorrow. You know you’re getting old when you can remember when Southwest was the no-frills cattle call airline.

Got to love marketing. On “Shout” stain remover it trumpets “Removes stains the 1st time or it’s free.” So since it’s not working on a stain (ink) I read the bottle carefully, find tiny print directing me to a website. A few more clicks, and ALL they need to send me $3.99 besides a lot of info is the cash register receipt from up to a year ago. Right, because we all save every receipt for potential under $4 windfalls….

In Saturday’s U.S. Virgin Islands, Hillary Clinton had a big win and picked up all seven pledged delegates. Wow. Okay, before this year, who even knew the U.S.V.I had a primary?

So we’ve got hockey, basketball and baseball going on now.  But as TC points out  after the Padres and Mariners split a pair in San Diego, 16-6 and 16-13: “When did the NFL preseason start?”

  1. My late father-in-law DID save every receipt — and kept them for many years. Going through his office after he passed away in 2010, under the bed (it also doubled as a guest room) was a box full of envelopes, each labeled with a year…stuffed full of receipts, both for tax deductible items and for everyday stuff. IIRC found ones going back into the 1990s. (Also found a carbon copy of a letter he sent in 1968 to his then-Congressman, opposing the Vietnam War, but that’s another story.) He would have been well suited to pick up that extra 4 bucks if need be.🙂

    The Yankees are holding their Old Timers game this upcoming Sunday. Or as its otherwise known, a split-squad scrimmage.

    I looked up “roadkill” tonight, and found a pic of LeBron.

    It’s not all doom & gloom for King James though. He supposedly signed an endorsement deal with “In and Out” before leaving town.
