Cheers and jeers

August 6, 2017

Dolphins sign Jay Cutler reportedly in part because fans were unhappy about the idea of Kaepernick. Chicago Bears fans are just giggling.

Jay Cutler is apparently going to come out of retirement and sign with the Dolphins. So how many teams will now get calls from Brett Favre?

 

Nothing is certain except death, taxes, and that the SF pitching to Goldschmidt is a really stupid idea.

Falcons CB Jalen Collins suspended the first 10 games of 2017 for PEDs, after being suspended the first 4 games in 2016 for PEDs.  Is the 2nd suspension for drugs or stupidity?

After watching Mets get obliterated by Dodgers,  and the Giants actually looking good in winning two games in a row, thinking maybe New York should take a page out of the San Francisco Panda playbook and bring up at this point a minor-league talent – Tebow.

RIP #DarrenDaulton. Really sad to watch stars you’ve watched play pass away. Sadder when they’re younger than you.

 

Two former rowers on U Washington’s men’s team have been charged with sharing videos of them having sex with drunk women, including two who don’t remember the incidents.
The men were kicked off the team when the allegations first surfaced. Heck of a way to show rowers could be the equal of big-time college athletes.


CNN.com  headline – “beloved celebrity couple calls it quits.” So, okay, I clicked on the story – “Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have filed for separation.”

All together now, “who?”

The manufacturer of the Fireball ride that broke apart at the Ohio State fair, killing one and injuring seven, said “excessive corrosion on the interior of the gondola support beam dangerously reduced the beam’s wall thickness over the years.”
But hey, let’s get rid of more pesky regulations.

Ah online reviews…. Was looking for a hotel in a certain area of Dubai. W Hotel on the Palm has 4.2 ranking out of 5, 26 reviews. Which sounds great except for one thing. It is under construction and NOT OPEN YET.

Chris Christie -Mueller’s convening of a grand jury is a “normal step.” As a former prosecutor he should know what it’s a “normal step” towards.

Minn. Gov. Mark Dayton called mosque bombing “act of terrorism,” following in footsteps of Pres. Trump. Oh wait, crickets. Never mind.

Trump is now quoting @protrump45, supposedly a young black conservative woman, who is actually a bot. What’s next- voting rights for bots?
Why hasn’t Trump,on his “working vacation”, tweeted anything about missing Marines in Australia. Because no way to blame on Obama or Hillary?
#MikePence says running in 2020 story “latest attempt by media to divide this administration.” Actually Trump divides them quite well on his own.
 –
Journalist Julia Ioffe, slamming Trump’s proposed immigration policy. “When you ask Trump supporters, they don’t care because she’s a different — she’s the right kind of immigrant.”
“She is a beautiful white woman from Europe, and we like those. Even though she doesn’t have a college degree.”
Well, yeah, and she’s willing to do the kind of jobs Americans won’t do… like marrying Donald.

You can keep your hat on.

#SFGiants undefeated in 2nd #PabloSandoval era.

The Panda is back in San Francisco.  One of few bright stops in lost season – at least SF Giants aren’t ones paying him $90 million.

Kirk Reuter leads stadium in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” and #SFGiants score 3 runs with next 3 batters. #rallywoody

Colin Kaepernick was 23rd ranked QB in NFL last year. So message is, if you’re going to be a distraction, you better be one of the top 10.

#SFGiants lineup tonight: Span, Jones, Crawford, Sandoval, Parker, Pence, Hundley, Stratton. Just like we expected in spring training.

#Dbacks Starting pitcher Anthony Banda, who held #SFGiants to 1 run Friday night , was 7-6 this season, w/ 5.13 ERA, in Triple-A…

 

Headline in UK Daily Mail “Oakland Athletics star ‘hurls gay slur at Los Angeles Angels fan…”

Now this was a really stupid thing for Matt Joyce to do, and he has apologized (and been suspended two games. )  But “star?” He is hitting .227.’

Stephen Curry shot a 74 at the Ellie Mae Classic & missed the cut. Well, at least he might have fulfilled childhood dream of playing like Tiger Woods.

Isn’t Eric Bolling dick pick kind of redundant?   I think that would describe all his selfies.

 

#EricBolling has been suspended by Fox News. Well, there are positions open in the White House communications office.

The White House is being renovated while Trump is on vacation. Any chance they can change the locks?

So Putin’s on vacation and Trump just left for 2 weeks in New Jersey. Because Vlad won’t be around to tell him what to do? #coincidence?

 

A Mike Pence spokesman tweeted that “claims VP preparing for 2020 run are ridiculous #FakeNews.” Nah, Pence thinks he’ll be working on re-election.

 

Scary thought – while on vacation @realDonaldTrump might really have time to watch TV.

 

So wonder how much @realDonaldTrump has jacked up the rates at Bedminster to charge taxpayers for his vacation?
