Feel the power.

April 14, 2017

Yeah!  Massero’s home run against Colorado tonight now means that SF Giants left fielders have half as many home runs as Madison Bumgarner.



A jury found Aaron Hernandez not guilty in his most recent murder trial. Does that mean the Patriots might offer him another contract?

The Seattle Mariners have sold out of toasted grasshoppers in each of their first three home games. Just wondering, how many beers on average has each buyer of grasshoppers consumed?

So is saying a radio station plays “adult hits” somehow supposed to make us feel younger than calling it an oldies station?

United Airlines’ pilots union has issued a letter saying they were “infuriated” over the O’Hare incident: “this occurred on one of our contracted Express carriers, separately owned and operated by Republic Airline, and was ultimately caused by the grossly inappropriate response by the Chicago Department of Aviation.”
Guess they didn’t need to add “and this isn’t helping our stock and thus pensions.”

United say they will  stop having police take psgrs from planes. Instead w/ overbooked flts they’ll send all on board & play airline Hunger Games?


Delta Airlines apparently will now authorize employees to offer up to almost $10,000 in compensation to give up seats on overbooked flights. Will this be known internally as the “Take that, United rule”?


State Rep. Cecil Bell Jr. is trying to pass a law allowing Texas to declare federal laws, rules and court decisions unconstitutional and unenforceable in the state..

Can’t they just secede and make us all happy?


The Texas State Supreme Court struck down a request by “affluenza” teen Ethan Couch, to get out of prison a year early.
Who says there’s no bipartisan agreement in this country?
“I feel so sorry for him.” said nobody.

So Canada already has Justin Trudeau and now they add legalized marijuana?. Now that’s just piling on.

Trump loves publicity & signing ceremonies, but he signed bill allowing states to defund #PlannedParenthood in private, #Profilesincowardice

North Korea’s Vice Minister Han Song Ryol told AP that the country has determined that Trump administration is “more vicious and more aggressive” than Obama’s. What was their first clue?


Trump, who’s been attacking NATO regularly,  “I said it was obsolete, it’s no longer obsolete.”  So on top of all his other “successes” Trump has now made NATO great again?

Melania Trump flew down separately with Barron from New York to join Donald in Mar-a-Lago for Easter.   At a cost to taxpayers of over $100,000.   Even now might it have been cheaper to have her and Secret Service fly United and pay whatever other passengers demanded to give up their seats?

Then Melania will head up to DC, possibly with a stop in New York, certainly returning to New York, for the annual White House Easter Egg hunt Monday.

Even Woody Hall is going, hmm, do we really need the eggs?  (Annie Hall joke for youngsters.)

Trump is being uncharacteristic vague about whether he personally authorized #MOAB strike. Translation – he wants to make sure it’s popular and doesn’t backfire






Trump refuses to release White House visitor logs to public. No GOP outcry. They do realize there might be another Dem President someday?



From T.C.  Tim Tebow has now homered twice in the minors. He is not so happy with his fielding though, complaining that his throws from the outfield to home plate keep getting intercepted by the shortstop or second baseman.


What a drag

April 14, 2017

Doctor taken off United flight has hired a lawyer. Guessing airline will want to settle rather than dragging the case out.



Last time #SFGiants came back to win when trailing in 9th inning, Donald Trump was a novelty act after 1 GOP debate. (Sept 15, 2015)

Eli Manning has now been named tangentially in a alleged scheme by the NY Giants to sell fake game-used memorabilia. His email to the team equipment manager as listed in a court documents. “2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli.”
And here we thought Peyton’s Papa John’s and Budweiser Super Bowl plugs were the Manning’s most embarrassing marketing moments.

Dustin Johnson, who reportedly injured his back falling down stairs at his Augusta rental home, will return to the PGA Tour May 4 at the Wells Fargo Championships. Where presumably his WIlmington, NC, rental home will only be single-story.

That moment when you see the headline “Heidi and Spencer are going to be parents.” And you think, “who?”

Only bad thing for most airline passengers w/ #United fiasco. Now all the entitled jerks on board will feel – and act- even more entitled.

NY police carted away 25 protesters today from Trump Tower. Next time Trump is threatening to use United agents & O’Hare security guards.

Former Buccaneers WR Louis Murphy yesterday for carrying a loaded gun in a backpack at Tampa airport, while Steelers CG Senquez Golson was arrested for carrying an unloaded Glock in his carry on at Mobile’s airport.
I know these United agents are scary but this is ridiculous.

Since Trump seems to like “the rocket’s red glare” so much can Jared & Ivanka just hook him up w/ a fireworks company for Mar-A-Lago?

Florida health inspectors cited Mar-A-Lago with 15 food violations this year. Who needs plutonium?

Jeffery Lord says  that Donald Trump is the “MLK of healthcare.”   More like “I have a nightmare.”

The Cape May, NJ GOP decided to pull support from Brian McDowell, a NJ Jersey State Assembly candidate after a video surfaced of him at a bar saying to a woman “Let me tell you right now. You should f–k me. It would really be good. Listen, you never know.”
McDowell is staying in the race, maybe hoping for an endorsement from the President?

After saying yesterday that things were “nasty” and ‘we’re not getting along with Russia at all’,” Trump today tweeted “Things will work out fine between the U.S.A. and Russia. At the right time everyone will come to their senses & there will be lasting peace!’
Gawd, can’t imagine how anyone might think Trump and Putin have a bromance going. #teenagelovespat

The dollar has fallen in the last two days after comments Trump made to the Wall Street Journal “I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that’s my fault because people have confidence in me.”
Is there ANYTHING in the world that isn’t all about him?
