41 and counting.

December 15, 2017

And of 41 college football bowl games, six are on Dec. 16. And if you can name at least half of them without Google, you just might need a life.

 

Now it’s Dave Brubaker, women’s national team director of Gymnastics Canada, facing sex-charges. Sad. Those days seem so innocent when we “just” worried about gymnasts’ eating disorders.

Carlos Santana leaves the Indians for the Phillies. 3 years, $60 million.  Plus he gets Octobers off!

NFL owner being investigated for “workplace misconduct.” Millions of Americans disappointed that it isn’t Jerry Jones or Dan Snyder.#JerryRichardson #Panthers

Now, I adore Kawhi Leonard. But the Spurs are 0-2 since he returned in limited minutes.  So maybe this doesn’t burnish his MVP credentials.

 

Alabama and San Francisco now have something in common – No Moore.

AOL is officially killing AIM. And millions of millennials have no idea what either of those are.

So it’s a May 19 wedding for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Does probably make it easier to remember your anniversary when it’s printed on tea towels.

 

In an attempt to get Rubio’s vote, GOP plans to increase child tax credit $300. Wow. That ought to pay for a whole week of day care.

#TaxBill has losses from fires, floods or other events no longer deductible unless covered by specific federal disaster declaration. But GOP will offer lots of thoughts and prayers.

EPA hires an opposition research firm to help them shape media coverage, CDC can’t use words: “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” & “science-based.”
I liked Orwell better as a novelist than a prophet.

Trump attacks FBI, saying “People are very, very angry.” “People?” Is that another term for his Russian bot followers?

 

Trump “visa lottery..really the worst of the worst.” He misspoke on “visa lottery” – meant to say “my system for picking judges.”

 

Barack Obama dressed up as Santa Claus at a Washington DC Boys & Girls Club. Don’t tell Trump. He’ll repeal Santa.

Are you ready for some almost football?

December 15, 2017

Thursday Night Football tonight was 4-9 Broncos vs 3-10 Colts.  Did US retailers pay NFL for this matchup to get Americans to say “Heck, I’ll just go Christmas shopping.”

Not that I could predict the winners, or even name the teams. But we’re less than a week away from best named college bowls of 2017 – the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl” and the “Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.”

Jets OC John Morton, acknowledging NY had no chance in 4th against Broncos “I just wanted to run it and get out of there.” Sort of how the Giants have been playing all season?

Today was the five anniversary of #SandyHook. Five years of GOP “thoughts and prayers..

What happened to #KateSteinle was a tragedy, but those demanding changes & politicizing her death somehow don’t feel the same about #SandyHook

Disney buying most of Fox. Makes sense. Fox already was a Mickey Mouse operation.

Just got an pre-sale announcement for “Earth, Wind and Fire” concert. Assume tickets automatically come with a senior discount?

Watching #RoyMoore still refuse to accept Alabama voting results makes you wonder what he’d have done when Senate voted to expel him?

#BumperStickersForBadParents “I told Roy Moore he could date my daughter.”

Maybe we can get Trump to overturn FCC #NetNeutrality decision if we convince him fewer people will see his tweets?

A number of GOP senators are reportedly now undecided on tax bill. Presumably those running for re-election in 2018? #TaxScamBill

OK, this IS  a #FakeNews headline from @CNN – “Paul Ryan ‘soul searching'” As if they really expected us to believe #PaulRyan has a soul.

 

Some right-wing sore losers alleging voter fraud in Alabama. Uh, if Democrats were that good at fake votes they’d have gotten enough to win 2016 election.

 

Leaving aside Trump nominee Matthew Spencer Petersen’s lack of qualifications to be a judge, after his hearing, have to wonder, how did Petersen ever pass the bar?

Reports that @SenJohnMcCain is looking “increasingly frail.” For his sake & that of USA probably best if he stay home & rest instead of voting on GOP tax bill,

 

I didn’t really want #DustinHoffman to be the man behind today’s Sexual Predator Advent Calendar window.

Though Hoffman has never been one of my very favorites.  One of saddest things about 2017 is being a woman & having your “desert island men” list become a list of men you REALLY don’t want to see trending.
