Time passages

November 4, 2017

This morning we set our clocks back a hour. While GOP is trying to set them back 50 years.


Big Justin Verlander fan But thinking many men wouldn’t be too sorry for him had Astros lost & marrying Kate Upton was consolation prize.

Since both #Pac12 and #Big10 champions will probably have two losses neither league likely to have team in Rose Bowl. #Sad

Oklahoma 62 to 52 victory over Oklahoma State great for fans of NBA All-Star game. #nodefense

Of course if Stanford players wanted to and could play in the snow some of them might have gone to the Big Ten. #StanfordvsWSU

So how much worse does it have to get before Urban Meyer retires again for health reasons? #OSUvsIOWA

Friday night FAU took late safety & won only 30-25.  Then Coach Lane Kiffin sent “joke” tweet on not covering 6.5 pt spread.   Can we check Kiffin for concussions?

House of Cards can solve problem by creating President Claire Underwood. Probably not workable for USA to do same for Melania.

In Wisconsin, lawmakers approved a bill eliminating ANY age restriction on children participating in a “mentored hunt”  effectively letting anyone hunt. The measure also would eliminate the requirement that a hunter and mentor have only one weapon between them.  What could possibly go wrong?

US woman in Zimbabwe charged w/ subversion for referring to Pres. Mugabe on Twitter as “sick man.” Let’s hope this doesn’t give Trump ideas.


Donna Brazile and Elizabeth Warren don’t seem to get that GOTV doesn’t mean “Gross Out the Voters.

And really, does anyone think @JoeBiden and @CoryBooker would have accepted the ticket as part of Brazile’s imaginary coup?
Is Donna Brazile hoping for a job at Fox News?
George W. Bush on Trump “This guy doesn’t know what it means to be President.” Scary thing, by comparison W. might be right.
In Hawaii yesterday, President Trump was greeted with “Welcome to Kenya” signs. Did he turn to Melania and say “See, I was right?”
Trump to hire 70 foreign workers at Mar-A-Lago claiming can’t find Americans to do jobs. Gosh, has he tried paying more money?

Beyond baseball

November 4, 2017

Houston Astros say they are not sure on a potential White House trip. Of course, they should be careful, Trump could see Altuve & try to deport him as unaccompanied immigrant child.

Alabama freshman quarterback Mac Jones, 19,  arrested Friday morning and charged with driving under the influence (along with improper identification by a minor.) Okay, I know there are rules against boosters providing cars to players. Maybe NCAA should reconsider Uber/Lyft credits?


New Nationals manager Dave Martinez, “We’re not here just to win playoff game. We’re here to win WorldSeries.” Can we start with a playoff series?


Watching Thunder this year with Carmelo Anthony. Is it just possible that cancer is contagious?

Dolly Parton’s ex-publicist accused of offering fans meet & greet for oral sex. If one of those women shot him might be good country song.


Netflix said no further production of House of Cards will include Kevin Spacey. Does this mean “President Claire Underwood?” #SilverLining

Whatever happened to La David Johnson f*cking sucks. Does anyone doubt if it was on Clinton’s watch GOP would be calling for impeachment?

Astros not sure on White House trip. Should be careful, Trump could see Altuve & try to deport him as unaccompanied immigrant child.

Ivanka Trump made a speech against sexual harassment. That’s like Colonel Sanders’ daughter making a speech for chicken rights.

Trump didn’t speak publicly at Pearl Harbor memorial. I think I speak for millions of Americans when I say, Thank God.

Person who shut down @realDonaldTrump twitter account reportedly a contractor. Can he/she contract next with the IRS?

Seriously, maybe even GOP should start getting a little nervous in that @realDonaldTrump wants to fire and/or prosecute anyone who disagrees with him?


As Bill Bradley 2000 supporter, didn’t occur to me to allege rigging when Primary process, as usual, HEAVILY favored front-runner Al Gore.

As Trump claims “Most Americans will be able to file taxes on a single piece of paper,” two words to him “You start.” #showusthemoney
