Easing into the holiday

December 24, 2017

A number of people are taking Christmas weekend off. Including so far at this point,  the Golden State Warriors.

14 college football bowl games played already. Can anybody name one?

As Trump vents from his phone at Mar-A-Lago thinking how nice it might be for America if he spent more afternoons in front of TV just watching sports.

Los Angeles animal shelters considering feeding dogs an all vegan diet. Seriously.  Your move, Berkeley.

So NFL ratings down for anthem protests? Or for injuries, increasing proof of CTE… and the fact there are a lot of seriously lousy teams?


Wyoming QB Josh Allen says he will enter NFL draft & forgo his senior year of eligibility. Wow. Giving up perhaps chance for 2nd win in Famous Idaho Potato Bowl?

6-6 Florida State had to issue statement declaring Delaware State a valid FCS opponent, because without thatt 77-6 win Seminoles wouldn’t have been eligible for the… Walk-On Independence Bowl?!

How the mighty have fallen.


Facebook ads for Christmas Eve Brunch with wine starting at 11a. Well, one way to avoid family stress later in the day is to be asleep by dinner time.

Miss America CEO & others have resigned over derogatory emails about contestants & pageant winners. How long until they get offered jobs in Trump administration?

Isn’t Christmas a time to be grateful to those who give us gifts? And here Trump is trashing Comey again after former FBI director gave him the Presidency.

Bomb squad called to Steven Mnuchin’s mansion found instead, literally, gift-wrapped horse shit. Which actually seems like a perfect metaphor for #GOPTaxBill

Trump reportedly furious about anonymous sources who claimed he made derogatory remarks about Haitians & Nigerians. Will he tweet “Many people are saying this proves @NYTimes is #FakeNews?”

As we’ve turned the corner on Winter Solstice days are slowly getting less dark. Maybe a metaphor for the country? #Alwaysdarkestbeforethedawn#WecanDream #Resist
