Well, not the smartest thing in the world to be riding a dirt bike on an off-day.  On the other hand, how many players get hurt doing every day things… or falling down the dugout steps.  Paging Jeremy Affeldt.

Give  Madbum credit for not claiming to have been washing his truck.

Clearly he should have stuck to riding horses. Aren’t there stables in Denver?

If baseball wants to speed up game maybe there should be a sign like IBB sign for hitters like Gorkys Hernandez at this point –  “Automatic out”. #SFGiants


Since it just might be a “misery loves company” year for #SFGiants, Sergio Romo in relief for LA just balked in go ahead run for Dbacks.  And gave up 5 earned runs in a third of an inning.

Well on a brighter note for #SFGiants not like they were scoring any runs for Bumgarner anyway. Maybe they will for Ty Blach.

Massive #poweroutage in San Francisco. But this time it’s not the #SFGiants. They are out of town in Denver.

Russell Westbrook was fined $15,000 for saying in a postgame news conference. “I don’t give a f— about my line. We lost.”
Wow. $15,000.  Whatever  happened in the NBA to the dollar jar?

#Blackhawks being swept in four games by the #8 seed #Predators now means most embarrassing thing in Chicago is no longer United Airlines.


An air  marshal forgot her gun in lavatory on US flight. Passenger turned it in.   Once again, USA has much more to fear from stupidity than terrorism.

Jeff Sessions, backtracking on Hawaii slam, says he thinks state is “fabulous” place.  Fabulous?  Hmm, enough to question the AG’s sexual orientation?

United missed deadline for answering questions from senators about dragging incident. Will they blame weather, mechnical or “operations”

In Germany, a terrorist who bombed Dortmund soccer team bus was trying to make money on the team’s shares falling after the attack. And he was going to blame it on Muslims.
So can we start cracking down on capitalist extremists?

Jason Chaffetz on rumors he might leave Congress before his term is up “I’ll take a little bit of time to sort out. I’d be thrilled to have a television relationship. ..”
Hmm, the Chaffetz Factor?

Apparently Trump’s comment “Korea used to be a part of China,” has not won him friends in South Korea. College student Ahn Hong-seok, if Trump “is a person capable of becoming a president, I think he should not distort the precious history of another country.”
If it makes them feel any better, Trump also distorts the “precious history” of his own country.

Biggest threat to Democrats in 2018 and 2020 is not the GOP. It’s party infighting. That is all.
