Flagged

Last year after Carolina beat Seattle and a Seahawks fan dangled a “12” flag near Cam Newton, the Panthers QB smiled, grabbed the flag and tossed it away. Now Richard Sherman is saying “I guess karma gets you” as it “doesn’t look like (Carolina) will be in the playoffs this year.”
Now, I’m a HUGE fan of mean bitch Karma, but my sense is that flag grabbing isn’t high on her list of the worst NFL sins.

 

Seeding in the @NBA playoffs is all about home-court advantage. The way the @spurs are playing, home court might not be an advantage.

In Prince Edward Island, Canada, Police in the town of Kensington have warned “those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive,” that not only will they arrest you, “we will provide you with a bonus gift of playing the offices copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”
The department thought about threatening to play Justin Bieber, but that might be a violation of the Geneva Convention.

11 stabbed by a #Somali at #OSU is cause to stop refugee program, but 10 bystanders shot in #NewOrleans isn’t cause for gun control? #WTF?

 

Cubans lined the streets and cheered for a four-day funeral procession throughout the country for Fidel Castro. Though to be fair hard to tell if they were cheering for their long-time leader’s life, or for his death.

US Weekly is reporting that “a source close to Kim and Kanye” said that “Kardashian was looking to take a break from her husband.”
Wow, if true, Trump will have to come up with some pretty incredible tweets to stay at the forefront of the headlines.

Michael ‘Jim’ Delligatti, 98, died this week. He was the McDonald’s franchisee who came up with the Big Mac in the 1960s.
Presumably Delligatti owed his long life to never eating his creation

 

The NYPD is looking for a man who snatched a pail containing $1.6 million worth of gold flakes off the open back of a Loomis truck on 48th Street. Leaving aside that police do not know his identity, have to wonder, who LEAVES $1.6 million in gold in the open back of a truck? #cantfixstupid

#SarahPalin is actually lobbying now to be appointed Secretary of Veterans Affairs. But haven’t vets suffered enough?

Barack Obama, on those dreaming of his wife following him. ” “Michelle will never run for office. She is as talented a person as I know. You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she’s too sensible to want to be in politics.”
All accurate except the “joke” part.

So now that the GOP controls the Presidency, Senate and House they will be able to repeal Obamacare and replace it with that great healthcare system for everyone that we had before…. Oh, wait, never mind.

As we await the latest crazy 3 am tweets, maybe our nation’s serious journalists should take a page from John McCain. “I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I didn’t before the election and I’m not doing so afterwards. I’m working on defending this nation as chairman of the Armed Services Committee, so you are wasting your time asking me about Donald Trump’s day-to-day comments or what his positions are.”

So, is it wrong to root for Trump to fail? Personally I will be pleasantly surprised if he can do good things with infrastructure, jobs and healthcare, and would (ok, I admit it, grudgingly) cheer him..
But as far as cutting our limited safety-nets, as far as taking away women’s and LGBT rights, as far as continuing to incite xenophobia, as far as making it possible for police to stop anyone on the street who looks foreign….. on these and other threats/promises, yes, I ABSOLUTELY will root for him to fail.

From Marc Ragovin   “In anticipation of moving to their new home next year, the Atlanta Braves have acquired 43-year old pitchers Bartolo Colon and 42-year old RA Dickey. What is the name of their new place? Jurrasic Park?”
