A long time out.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver says he wants to reduce length of games. “People, particularly millennials, have increasingly short attention spans. So it’s something, as a business, we need to pay attention to.”
The average NBA game is under 2 1/2 hours. MLB, NFL and college football fans are just giggling.


Adam Silver says @NBA wants to shorten length of games to keep fan interest. Wouldn’t it make more sense to shorten length of season?



Anyone but me thinking that Friday the 13th was a lot less scary this January than Friday the 20th?


If someone had come up with a screenplay based on US politics over last year it would be been rejected as scary but too absurd.

In December, Paul Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that ““it will clearly take time” to come up with an ACA replacement “It’s not going to be replaced come next football season.”
Next season? Thinking that repealing Obamacare is going to be a lot like the 49ers firing Jim Harbaugh

Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter will be back with the team, and on the sidelines in Kansas City for the playoff game this weekend. Charges against him, which include assaulting a police officer outside a Pittsburgh bar last Sunday, have been dropped.
Well, good to see some equality before the law, as in the same rights for coaches as players?

Bill Littlejohn, on the Chargers planning to play their first two seasons at the 27,000-seat StubHub Center in Carson: “Won’t they be embarrassed by all those empty seats.”

(of course 27,000 looks like a big crowd at the end of most of the 2016 season’s 49er games.)


If our Founding Fathers had only thought to say “a well-regulated militia with good healthcare” in the 2nd amendment….

Now the #WSJ is calling for FBI Direct James Comey to resign. Well, yeah, what do you expect from such a liberal newspaper


Paul Anka has pulled out of performing at Trump’s inaugural. Did he get a better offer from #DWTS?

A company called “Don’s Johns” provides many porta-potties in DC. During the inaugural Trump administration will have company’s name taped over, which is getting more publicity than maybe just leaving things alone. Well, good thing for them there is no guy named Golden with a portable shower company.

With Ivanka & Jared Kushner moving to DC so nice to remember that many didn’t vote for Hillary because they didn’t like dynasty politics.

As we debate Obamacare, do people really not realize that pre-existing conditions didn’t just keep poor people from getting insurance, they kept millions of people who COULD pay from getting insurance. Young, old and middle-aged. But I guess that doesn’t matter, especially to those in Congress who have benefits for life.

In a BBC interview, Nicole Kidman said about Trump ‘So I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support whoever is the president because that’s what the country’s based on. Whatever, however, that happened, he’s there, and let’s go. For me, I’m very, very committed to women’s issues.”
She has a point, and I hope Trump is better than many of us fear.
But it’s a lot easier to make that statement when you have dual Australian citizenship.

    Most NBA fans already have shortened the length of games. We dedicate AT LEAST 35 minutes to watch the last 90 seconds of EVERY GAME!

    The only good thing about the last 90 seconds of an NBA game is if you have a weak bladder. (sorry Donald T, please just ignore the last comment)

    My answer to shorten the season is based on the fact that so many team make the finals they should make the format like the NCAA tournament. One and done, instead the best of 7 for each bracket.

    Regarding Nicole Kidman’s remark that “we as a country need to support whoever is the president because that’s what the country’s based on,” Teddy Roosevelt had a different perspective: https://jrbenjamin.com/2015/01/25/teddy-roosevelt-how-to-criticize-the-president/
