Limping towards the weekend.

February 9, 2017


Did Bud Selig leave idea of starting a runner at 2nd in @MLB extra innings in a farewell note in the new Commissioner’s desk?

Spring Training starts next week.  About time. February is kind of a comedy wasteland for sports humor.  Although to be fair, in New York, the Knicks and Nets are doing their part.

Anyone who follows my FB feed knows I argue with my father all the time on social media. Have to wonder, what would it take for Ivanka to say “Dad, just STFU?”

And the classiness just keeps on coming. Kellyanne Conway this morning on “Fox and Friends: “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff. I hate shopping, but I’m going to get some myself today. It’s a wonderful line. I own some of it. I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it everybody. You can find it online

But really, did KellyAnne Conway expect women would take fashion advice from a woman who wore a high school band uniform to inauguration?

Trump will do anything to get people to buy Ivanka’s clothes except order her to have them made in America


Uh, oh, so did our President just commit billions to California? In a meeting with airline execs, when “you go to China, you go to Japan, they have fast trains all over the place. I don’t want to compete with your business, but we don’t have one fast train,”
Paging Jerry Brown.

Now Trump back to tweeting John McCain is a loser. Wonder how far he has to go before McCain might actually vote against him in Senate

Another angry Trump tweet -“Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who never fought in Vietnam when he said for years he had (major lie), now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?
Shouldn’t Vietnam expert Trump be commending Blumenthal on his alternative facts?


Nordstrom stock up 4% yesterday, and up again today. Just saying.

Could #BettyWhite on @SNL play someone in Trump administration. Because I really would like to see him DARE go after her.


So is @realDonaldTrump calling new AG Sessions asking him how to fire judges?


Let’s get to the real outrage: Donald Trump’s Twitter tantrums keeping internet from fully enjoying George & Amal Clooney’s pregnancy.


I believe in the church of baseball

February 9, 2017

Baseball will test a rule in the minors automatically to put a runner on 2nd base starting in extra innings. Where is Kevin Costner and his Bull Durham rant when we REALLY need him. “I believe in the soul….”

Lefthanded pitcher Javier Lopez, 39, has announced his retirement from MLB. “So young?” responded Jamie Moyer.

The Cleveland Browns have reduced prices on 40% of their season tickets. It’s a good start. How long until the team starts paying people to show up?

Sean Spicer is talking about terror attack on #Atlanta. Ok, it was awful, but maybe he should “dial it back” a bit about the ending of the Super Bowl.

Former Knicks star Charles Oakley, 53 was arrested at MSG and charged with assault after “screaming abuse” at owner James Dolan, and fighting with security guards. Long-suffering NY fans have to be thinking, he put up a better fight than the team usually does.

When Jeff Sessions is sworn in as Attorney General will they raise the Confederate Flag at the U.S. Capitol?

Many parents have a memory of toddler pushing limits w/ increasing craziness just to see how far s/he could go. Now we just turn on news in the morning….


Reports are that at least two candidates have turned Donald Trump down to be White House communications director. Presumably they prefer something like a janitorial job at the National Zoo, where they could clean up after real elephants.

Now Trump is angrily tweeting about Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s clothing line “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
So good to see the President focused on the really important issues of our time.

So now Trump’s blast at Nordstrom has been retweeted by the official @Potus account. Can only imagine what happens if stores stop selling his Trump branded steaks, wine, etc. Wait, is anyone actually selling them now?

So after tweeting “If the ban were announced with a one week notice, the “bad” would rush into our country during that week. A lot of bad “dudes” out there! Trump is now saying that he wanted to give a month’s notice on the travel ban, but was overruled by “law enforcement officials.”
Wow. The buck apparently stops under the bus with whoever he throws there.

So at what point in Northern California will the nightly storm stories on the news make us just a bit nostalgic for drought stories?

The British Guardian newspaper reports on a rumor that Trump will appoint Sarah Palin as ambassador to Canada. Is this part of a Trump secret plan to build a Northern wall, and have Canada pay for it?
