Kicked upstairs?

August 7, 2017

 

All you need to know about white privilege is that former 49ers GM Trent Baalke has been hired as a consultant by the NFL.

Johnny Manziel said if he doesn’t play again in NFL he’d like to return to football as college coach. Coach? More like an object lesson.

 

Jarrett Parker hits deep ball; bounces for ground rule double, Javy Baez hits one; bounces for inside the-park home run. #2017 #SFGiants

On the 10th anniversary of Barry Bonds’ 756th HR got to ask, while, yeah, we know he used PEDs, doesn’t the fact most pitchers were doing same thing kind of even it out?

Former Cavs GM David Griffin said Kyrie Irving showed “courage” by asking for a trade. So instead of a ring this year does Irving earn a medal?

Mets radio broadcaster Howie Rose was upset with ESPN for delaying the start of last night’s game so they could finish their pre-game show.
Of course, what he really should be upset with is the fact that NY lost all seven games they played this year against the Dodgers.

First #DarrinDaulton, now #DonBaylor. Sad week for MLB. But going to be a heck of an All-Star softball game this week in heaven.

 

Yung Mazi, a rapper who had survived 10 shootings and tweeted last year “God made me bulletproof” was shot again, this time fatally, in Atlanta. And cats are going “Even we don’t brag about all our lives.”

In July, Coast Guard caught 5 men trying to smuggle 5,000 lbs of cocaine into US on speedboat. But hey, let’s cut Coast Guard funds for a wall.

Another airline turbulence injury story makes headlines; if only there were some way to keep yourself in your seat. #Fastenyourdamnseatbelt

 

As White House takes away right of elderly to sue nursing homes for abuse, clear that Trump never expects to end up in home he doesn’t own.

Trump this am “Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal…” Projection much?

 

Tantrum on Blumenthal, nothing about loss of three Marines in Australia. Another of those moments Trump became Presidential?  Sad. Really.

 

Trump tweeted today, among other slams. “I think Senator Blumenthal should take a nice long vacation in Vietnam, where he lied about his service, so he can at least say he was there.”

So how are those bone spurs doing, Mr. President?

Of course, have to assume Trump will eventually go to Vietnam, when he gets a contract for a Trump hotel there.

Maybe we can get @realDonaldTrump to release the climate change report if someone tells him Barack Obama doesn’t believe it?

Missing those days when #TheBacheloretteFinale was sure to provide the craziest dialogue of the week.
