Security, national and otherwise.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton says he is going to add a “simple scrambler” to the locker room to keep players off social media before games. Wow, if this works can they put one in the Oval Office?


#SergioRomo to the Dodgers? Well, Los Angeles fans have plenty of advance notice to restock their liquor cabinets.

Congrats to Stanford women’s basketball coach  Tara Vandeveer on her 1,000th coaching win.  Wonder how much longer it would have taken her if Tara had switched over at some point to coach the men?


Once again, in a United States where it seems like there is no single trusted news source, I miss Walter Cronkite.

Spirit Airlines is going to cut the space for passengers’ free bags, from 2,688 to 2,016 cubic inches. Meaning the standard carry-on of 21″ x 14″ x 9″ is now too big, Anyone with a larger bag will have to pay $100 at the gate to board.
Two things. 1. How long until a major carrier follows suit. 2. How the heck do they expect average Americans to have a clue about what a cubic inch is?

So can someone explain to me why Baylor still has a football team?

Well, for a little  diversion – Drew Brees on “Fox & Friends” this morning before the Super Bowl. “I’m not ruling it out. It’s not the first thing I’m gonna do after I step away from the game, but I will certainly give it consideration.”

The “it”? Brees is talking about?  Running for office.

(I actually don’t know what party Brees would run as a candidate for…seriously. but hey, he seems decent, and not bat sh*t crazy.)


Billionaire Vincent Viola. who owns the Florida Panthers hockey team, has withdrawn as Trump’s choice for Secretary of the Army. The Military Times said he cited business interests that made the confirmation process nearly impossible.
Uh, not like it stopped any of Trump’s other choices?

Trump quickly tweeted “A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S.”
This because of one guy with a knife, who injured a soldier, but no fatalities. Not good to be sure. But where are all the tweets about the fatal terror attack in Quebec City?

How long until @realDonaldTrump calls for a Congressional Investigation into Hillary Clinton’s role in not preventing #BowlingGreenMassacre

So when is Trump going to issue a travel advisory for #BowlingGreen?

Kellyanne Conway attacked ChelseaClinton for Chelsea’s mocking tweet about #BowlingGreen. “It’s called class, grace, deep breath.” Like her boss?

Give @KellyannePolls a break, maybe she meant “Green Bowl” massacre. How many avocados will give their lives for guacamole this #Superbowl ?

Why America is already great: Google It links to a donation page for the ACLU.


Hashtag of the night  –  #PaulRyanin4Words.  Whatever Donald Trump wants.




From my Canadian friend T.C.  “Trump called NFL Commish Goodell ‘Weak, Stupid, Dopey & unfit to be a leader’.  No punchline needed here.”
