Consistency

November 26, 2017

Nothing is certain but death, taxes, and the Cleveland Browns sucking.

Alabama fans think they should still be in the College Football Playoff despite being beaten solidly by Auburn.  Well, especially after the Crimson Tide played a tough out-of-conference schedule including Colorado State and Mercer.

When @POTUS endorses a child molester for Senate guess it made sense for Tennessee to try hire someone who covered up child abuse as their head coach.

Although, news flash – Tennessee at least noted public outrage and has apparently changed their mind on Greg Schiano.

 

Cyber Monday looks like more than a few college football teams will be shopping for coaches.

Tony Parker finally returning to @Spurs Monday night.   San Antonio thrilled to have him back, & thankful most of his considerable medical expenses were covered by Medicare.

Last Sunday’s Ford EcoBoost 400, NASCAR Cup Series finale, had lowest ratings in race’s 19 yr history.  Again, must have been all those black drivers kneeling.

 

Since everyone is online all the time now shouldn’t #CyberMonday be retitled “Cyber Day that ends in Y?

Not saying there’s a #Kaepernick curse on @NFL. But there sure are a lot of QBs playing badly in 2017.

“Hi, I’m Roy, and what grade are you in honey? #ThingsNotToSayAtAHolidayParty

Now @realDonaldTrump questioning Access Hollywood tape after admitting it was real. So he’s calling his own words #FakeNews.

Trump is now calling Doug Jones a “Schumer/Pelosi” puppet. Aww, what happened to all those nice words he said about Chuck & Nancy?

 

Rough weekend for Trump – He can’t decide whether to tweet that he SHOULD be Time’s Man of the Year, or dismiss the magazine as Fake News.

Trump says Doug Jones wants to “RAISES (sic) TAXES.” And he’d probably want to spent taxes on things like education? #grammarandspellinghavealiberalbias

Susan Sarandon has a right to her anti-Hillary opinion, but hard to tell Alabama voters they have to vote for the lesser evil, when liberals won’t do same thing.

At least w/ all of Trump’s #FakeNews rants many Americans who might sympathize w/ #NYTimes‘ Nazi normalization story no longer read the paper.

Moving forwards, and backwards

November 26, 2017

Chip Kelly hired by UCLA. Kelly’s first college-coaching job since the 49ers.

 

How far as Tiger Woods fallen? From being on top of the world & attending 2009 Notre Dame vs Stanford game to playing golf this weekend with Donald Trump.

Love Trumps hate. And millions of Americans are loving watching the hated Alabama Crimson Tide lose.

 

How many headlines tomorrow – “Rolled tide.”? #AUBvsBAMA

Stanford’s Bryce Love  has to be the best one-legged player in college football.

And forget pumpkin pie. After the fourth quarter against Notre Dame, Stanford’s favorite Thanksgiving weekend dessert has to be turnovers.

 

Would be adding insult to injury to point out after Stanford upset of Notre Dame that it’s 60 degrees in Palo Alto & 28 degrees in South Bend. #NDvsSTAN

Michigan QB John O’Korn had a horrible day in his team’s loss to OSU. And he’ll still probably have an NFL job before Kaepernick.

Pundits said SFGiants were probably going to make playoffs in 2017 & had chance for World Series. Giants decided probably wasn’t good enough & took a pass on the year.

Black Friday  was so successful this year figure Trump will try to rename it Orange Friday and take the credit.

(and then as a friend pointed out, the SF Giants will sue him.)

A new U. of Michigan study found an oil in cinnamon attacks fat cells & could help fight obesity. Can’t wait to see the ads from Cinnabon.

Washington Post notes that a “Pew Research Center study found that 58 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents believe colleges & universities have a negative effect “on the way things are going in the country,” up from 37 percent two years ago.”
Well, yeah, education causes Democrats.

 

So now Trump is blaming negative way much of the world views USA  on CNN. #WTF?

 

 

I miss the days when condemning Nazis and child molesters was nonpartisan.

Geography, what a concept.

November 26, 2017

Who knew USF vs USF  might be best college football game of the year?  Seriously.

But okay, University of Central Florida (formerly FTU), in Orlando, check. University of South Florida in Tampa.  90 miles West of Orlando. About 200 miles NORTH of Miami.

And Golden Knights coach Scott Frost, who took the team from 0-12 to 12-0 in two years, might just be more in demand than a discounted iPhone X.

So maybe UCF really IS the best college football team in Florida. #MIAvsPITT

How did this year’s Pitt team lose 7 games, or maybe more accurately, how did Miami win 7?

Oscar Pistorius’ prison sentence more than doubled to over 13 years. “I feel so sorry for him.” said nobody.

Carnival Cruise Line is opening a Victoria’s Secret shop on newest ship. Is this Carnival’s way of discouraging passengers from eating very much at their buffets?

 

Las Vegas marijuana dispensaries apparently had Black Friday sales. Wonder how many customers will show up Saturday?’

Wonder if next year there will be an app to delete every marketing email that references #BlackFriday from your inbox?

Donald Trump still attacking @NFL. You’d almost think he had a petty grudge over having not been able to buy a team or something.

 

If Roy Moore loses his Senate race will he still have time to get a last minute job as a mall Santa?

Trump wants to change welfare because “people are taking advantage of the system.” He said this on a taxpayer funded weekend at one of his own resorts

 

Trump tweet Friday evening  –  “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

What about “Person of the Year” for the American Psychiatric Association? And his own personal DSM page….

 

Time’s twitter response – “The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.”
They had me at “The President is incorrect.”
