For want of a Spur?

March 5, 2018

When depleted & exhausted Spurs barely hang on to beat Grizzlies maybe it’s time for few MVP votes for Kawhi Leonard.

Disney executive James Pitaro named new president of ESPN. Cue the “Mickey Mouse organization” jokes.

The Astros sent 1st round draft pick Seth Romero home for a “violation of team policy.”  In college at the University of Houston, Romero was suspended the 1st two weeks of  2016 season “for conduct detrimental to the team. ” Then the Cougars suspended the star lefty pitcher for a failed drug test and finally in May of 2017 dismissed him from the team for ANOTHER incident.

So seems like Romero is really testing baseball’s  “10 strikes and you’re out policy.”




Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport has flight arrivals delayed today for an average of over 2 hours due to “snow and ice.” Uh, isn’t “snow and ice” in winter in MSP redundant?

Russ Solomon, 92, the founder of Tower Records, passed away yesterday. Or should we say he flipped over to the “B” side.

These days Trump has to figure he should have just let Stormy Daniels come forward with her story & save the $130,000. Not that a porn star would have bothered his supporters anyway.

Rex Tillerson has spent less of his $120 million budget to stop foreign meddling in our elections than Ben Carson wanted to spend on a dining room table.

So Sam Nunberg won’t talk to Mueller but he’ll call in to @CNN. A bit unclear on that “right to remain silent” concept?

Watching Sam Nunberg for Mueller has to feel like when you’ve been spending all day on a fishing trip and then one just jumps into your boat.

Sam Nunberg’s interviews are so bizarre you think he might be angling for the open position of White House Communications Director?

Ben Carson on the cabinet position he had no prior experience for… “There are more complexities here than in brain surgery.” Who knew HUD could be so complicated?

TMZ reports an unnamed military official “cautioned John Harbaugh and Ravens about signing Colin Kaepernick” So when did Trump hire John Kelly?

This Trump campaign sure had a lot of #covfefe boys.


As rumors fly that Trump may jettison Jared next have to wonder, how many people can you throw under the bus before wheels get jammed with bodies?




Major advantage in watching #TheBachelor is that all the people in your life feel so sane by comparison.



On and on….

Imagine how long the Oscars would have been if they weren’t giving away a Jetski for shortest speech…


Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro Gómez won best director & best picture for “The Shape of Water.” So will Trump congratulate him or say he should pay for the wall?

So did Jennifer Garner’s “In Memoriam” introduction remind Ben Affleck of what he lost?

Give Kobe credit, one of the first to win an Oscar AFTER his alleged sexual assault became public.

Kobe in his acceptance speech thanked his teammates.   Shocking.  Kobe knows he HAD teammates?

Can we tell @realDonaldTrump he could win a gold-plated JetSki for the shortest tweets? Asking for a country.


So tomorrow is Kobe going to come out with a special limited-edition Oscar shoe?

Can we be happy for #AllisonJanney winning and still wish that she was playing a real C.J. Cregg as Press Secretary?

This is the year when many men in Hollywood would probably have rather been featured on “In memoriam” segment than have lived through the death of their careers.

Seeing #Oscars90 trending. Are we talking about the average age of Oscars voters?


With all that’s wrong in the world, listening to Kruk and Kuip call game, even if it’s spring training, is a very good thing. @SFGiants

RIP Sir Roger Bannister, 1st to run a sub-4 minute mile. And if anyone was SURE to be in heaven before the devil knew he was dead….

Trump golf courses apparently plan to use Presidential seal at tee boxes, which is illegal. Although compared to everything else lately a little graft seems so… quaint.



So if Trump started a trade war over Hope Hicks leaving, what’s he going to do over the Steele memo?

Many of same people who think Trump was joking about being President for Life also thought the office would make him Presidential.
