Tennis love and labor?

April 24, 2017

Serena Williams is back ranked as #1 on the WTA Tour. Or should we say Number 1 1/2?


Ben Roethlisberger now says he’s sorry that he stopped listing Findlay, Ohio as his hometown after “Some negative things were said about me by people in this town. I was hurt and I resented that.”
Probably not nearly as much as women he was accused of sexually assaulting resented things.


#Dodgers score a run after Derek Law walks Chase Utley w/ .034 batting average. Even Gorkys Hernandez thinks that’s a bad year. #SFGiants.

Anyone remember the last time we heard Duane Kuiper’s home run call for the SF Giants? Me neither.

 Christian Arroyo era in SF has begin. He’ll wear #22. In 1986 a rookie did okay w/ that number. And this team needs thrills.  Heck, this team needed a defibrillator.
Whole Foods says they are going to lower their prices. So are they pre-announcing a Going out of Business sale?
Kenny G played an impromptu concert aboard Delta flight. And millions of Americans changed their minds on never dragging someone off plane.

State Dept removed blog post touting Mar-a-Lago as Winter White House. Trump hasn’t said yet which resort he’s using as Summer White House?


#WTF So we may have govt shutdown over border wall money? Maybe Ivanka or Jared can educate Trump on tunnels, planes & boats?

Just wonder what would happen if you told IRS, not sending in my tax payment but Mexico will be covering it for me eventually?


So congrats to all those who had Canada in “Who will Trump fight next” bingo.

All these “MAGA” Trump supporters who are so happy about Canadian lumber tariffs do realize it means higher prices for Americans right?

Sorry but anyone bragging his ratings are bigger “than when the World Trade Center came down” is clearly a sick individual. That is all.


(Trump yesterday to the AP, on the size of his…. ratings “It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation.”
“It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center — since the World Trade Center came down.”
Another moment when he became Presidential? )




TC with the lumber truck to hell  “DJ has just imposed a 20% tariff on Canadian softwood lumber exported to the US. I totally didn’t expect him to get personal on this issue. Anyways,no tariff on Hardwood Lumber? Sad…”

Caleb Brantley, a DT out of Florida, considered a 1st-2nd round pick in NFL draft has been charged with “misdemeanor simple battery” for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious during a fight this month in Gainesville.
Misdemeanor? What do you have to do in Florida for a felony? Kill someone?

You know what kind of year it’s been for #SFGiants when Matt Moore entered last night’s game with 11.74 ERA at Coors and manages to raise it.

As SF Giants limp to a 6-13 start at least maybe they inspire 49ers fans who dream of their team making it to a .333 winning percentage.

And yeah, it’s only April, but who had the Giants starting pitcher with the best ERA as Matt Cain?

Of course, who had the Dbacks dueling it out for the NL West lead with the Rockies?


Rockets up 3-1 in their series with the Thunder after 113-109 win. And of course one call never really decides a game.  But James Harden’s end of game push-off might have even been flagged by NFL replacement refs.

Steve Kerr could be out for season. If  Spurs don’t make finals maybe Warriors could borrow Popovich?

So France seeming to prefer the reasonable guy with no experience in elected office. Right about now lots of Americans would take that.  With the emphasis on reasonable.

Trump’s approval rating lowest in over 60 years at this stage of Presidency, at 42% If this keeps up we’re going to need #marchformath

#NorthKorea says they might strike US Aircraft Carrier to show military force. Will they have any better hope of finding it than we have?

Jeff Sessions defends saying “a judge on an island in the Pacific. “Nobody has a sense of humor anymore.”

Says the Attorney General for the President who angrily tweets about SNL skits.


CNN’s Alisyn Camerota is the latest to say “Roger Ailes sexually harassed me.”
At this point maybe it would be faster for any woman at Fox who WASN’T sexually harassed to come forward.
