Mistakes by the lake.

October 11, 2017

Seven errors, two games.    Bad time to become the ClEEEEvEEEland Indians.


What’s next for Cleveland? The Browns find a way to choke away the number 1 draft pick?

Silver lining for being Cleveland football fan?  – at least the Browns don’t get your hopes up.

At least US men’s soccer made sure we won’t have any national anthem controversy during the World Cup.

Dusty Baker is often maligned as a post-season manager. But he is one very short porch at Angels Stadium and one Steve Bartman away from much better outcomes.

Meanwhile  the “Washington Nationals are a train wreck” postseason wrap-up story looks like it might have to be postponed. #NLDS

Watching #Strasburg in NLDS makes #SFGiants fans think whoever decided to shut him down in 2012 should get retroactive World Series share.

Adrian Peterson on being traded from New Orleans “Thank you, Jesus. He answers prayers.” Right, but maybe prayers were from Saints fans?

From T.C.  “Once again, another Adrian Peterson Switch is in the news.”

Maybe all this anthem controversy with Jerry Jones is just to distract from the fact that the #Cowboys aren’t very good.

SF Giants TV local viewership fell 28% in 2017 from 2016. Only 28%? Better performance from fans than the team.

#BoyScouts will allow girls to join and attain rank of Eagle Scouts? But let’s get to the important question – can they share bathrooms?


Three suspected looters arrested in Santa Rosa tonight. Surely there are some unoccupied jail cells open in otherwise evacuated areas?

If someone told Donald  Trump that air quality in Northern California was so bad you can’t golf maybe he’d be more concerned. #calfires

Beginning to think Hollywood is not a nice place to be a woman. #sarcasm


If @HillaryClinton had won electoral college, have to assume GOP would be calling for impeachment over Weinstein donations. #alwaysherfault

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s son Caleb, 27, was arrested for the 9th time Monday, on a charge of 3rd-degree criminal trespass, involving illegal hunting.

A statement from Moore’s campaign called the arrest  a “cheap political trick.”  As opposed to the first eight?

Trump tweets that it’s “about time Roger Goodell demands players stand for the anthem.” League responds “Commentary this morning about the Commissioner’s position on the anthem is not accurate.”
Give Trump credit, it takes some real work to give NFL the moral high ground.

If Trump really understood the first amendment, can only imagine what he’d be tweeting about “Losers” Madison & Jefferson.

Today’s quote on Trump & the NFL “No president should have dictatorial power over individual behavior. A president should not be able to tell the owners of a business how their employees are gonna act and what they’re gonna swear allegiance to and all that.”
From that commie pinko Russ Limbaugh


Men’s night out…

Of the World Cup.   Thank heaven for women.


Well, at least we won’t have to worry about what #USMNT will do for US national anthem during the World Cup.

#USMNT has not qualified for #2018WorldCup. Somehow I missed the Trump tweet taking credit.


Trump called Pittsburgh Penguins “true champions & incredible patriots.” He does realize Stanley Cup MVP Sidney Crosby is Canadian?

NFL must be so proud:  That moment when you decry players peacefully protesting racism while still venerating a man at least involved w/ a murder #RayLewis

Goodell says “We believe players should stand for the National Anthem.” As if NFL believes in ANYTHING in US Treasury doesn’t print. $$$

Knicks sold jersey advertising patches to “Squarespace” Because Ringling Bros is no long an option?

Mike Ditka says there’s been “no oppression in the last 100 years.” Well, as a former player guess Ditka has excuse of too many concussions.

Open note to men saying women should’ve come forward sooner on Weinstein. Since it made such a difference when they came forward on Trump?

To be fair, all those people condemning women for not speaking up about Weinstein were so supportive to Anita Hill.

If Harvey Weinstein’s behavior was worst-kept secret in Hollywood why didn’t Fox News break story earlier to embarrass Democrats?


Harvey Weinstein flying to Europe to check in to a “sex rehab” clinic. Congratsto all those who had October 9 in the pool.


Also to be fair, in the Trump – Tillerson spat –  accepting a job in @realDonaldTrump White House might be considered a reason to question someone’s IQ.

Trump says he’d win if he & Rex Tillerson compared IQ tests. Note to Donald, it’s not like golf, lowest score doesn’t win.

Trump refers to “Liddle Bob Corker.” Well, that ought to do wonders for that “Adult day care” image.


Sarah  Huckabee Sanders on the  Donald’s attacks on Tillerson.  “Hee made joke (on IQ), you guys should get a sense of humor & try it sometime.” Pretty sure Trump would lose humor test too.”


Condoleezza Rice is the latest telling Trump to “tone down his rhetoric. ”  Bad enough that we have to miss George W. Bush, now we have to miss his administration too?


If these #CaliforniaWildfires turn out to be arson thinking a whole lot of people may rethink their opposition to the death penalty.


Now Trump has tweeted out two rants angrily defending John Kelly. Tweets about #CaliforniaWildfires still at zero.

One last purely political statement – We need to take back “liberal” as a positive word, and return “deplorable” to being a bad one.
