Changing seasons.

October 17, 2017

NBA regular season basketball is back tonight. Which means we’re only about 6 months away from meaningful games.

Meanwhile, Cubs looking like a team less interested in a possible second ring ceremony than vacation.

Will Trump claim Warriors lost opening night because he dis-invited them from White House?

Guess the Warriors are not going to go 82-0 this year.

Anthem protests? Or teams not worth watching? This from USA Today: “The New Orleans defense SCORED three touchdowns in Week 6. Eighteen of the 28 offenses in action during Week 6 couldn’t make similar claim.”

Titans Colts on MNF had lowest of season. Could be anthem issue. More likely competition from  Yankees-Astros.  And 2 lousy small market NFL teams.

If this postseason shows us anything it’s that 2016 #SFGiants bullpen may not have been good, but misery has a lot of company.

(Haven’t watched Astros regularly this season but also got to wonder, why pull McCullers after only 81 pitches and 1 run? #ALCS)

 

Imagining  Trump telling Jacqueline Kennedy “Your husband knew what he signed up for when he went to Dallas.

So wonder if Trump has told John Kelly his son “knew what he signed up for?”

Sociopaths do not feel empathy.

Defense Department investigating mission that led to deaths of 4 US soldiers in Niger. Will be interesting to see how they pin it on Hillary.

All these folks saying they wished they’d spoken up sooner about Weinstein. So there are NO other predators in Hollywood? Speak up on them.

Trump on his lie that we are the highest taxed nation in the world. “People know exactly what I’m talking about, and in many cases they think I’m right when I say the highest.”
Right, and the #FakeNews keeps reporting those pesky real facts.

Tom Marino withdrew as drug czar after WAPO/ 60Min story his bill helped put more opioids into struggling communities. #Notsofakenews?

A NJ teacher reportedly told her that t U.S. soldiers “are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish. They are fighting for your right to speak American.”
Uh, didn’t we actually fight a big war once against the people who gave us the language she called American?

“I still believe people are good at heart.”  (Anne Frank)  Have to think many Americans didn’t know what they were signing up for when they voted in Nov.

Trump is not happy with John McCain after the Senator’s speech repudiating “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems.”
“People have to be careful because at some point I fight back I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won’t be pretty.
Responding to Trump’s threat, McCain bluntly told reporters Tuesday: “I’ve faced far greater challenges than this.”
We’re going to need a stronger word than “deplorable.”
