Different speeds.

May 21, 2018

Cardinals rookie Jordan Hicks threw 2 pitches at 105 mph yesterday. What’s the big deal?  Jamie Moyer often threw 2 pitches that totaled 105 mph.

Several blowouts already.  And no game in the NBA conference finals has been closer than 9 points. Tonight’s was only that close because Cavs eased up with a 13 point lead at the end. And they say the regular season has no drama?

Steph Curry’s mom apparently gave him an earful and told him to wash his mouth out with soap after he yelled out “This is my f*cking house!” after a nice one handed shot last night.    Well, for long time Giants fans at least Curry also brought back memories of Will Clark in 1987 – “I’ve been waiting for this since I was a f*cking amateur.”

(Clark on his morning show on KNBR also indicated he heard from mom.)


SF Giants play two games in Houston.   Wednesday’s starter, Jeff Samardzija, has an ERA of 6.30.  Astros starters Cole and Verlander have a COMBINED era under 3.00 (1.75 and 1.05)  At least it’s a short series.

Serious Royal Wedding fans may have to watch a lot of replays of Harry and Meghan’s ceremony. to keep getting their fix.  Prince George, next in line for a major extravaganza, is four.


Trump lauds NASCAR because “they stand for the National Anthem.”  Right, except many of them think that anthem is “Dixie.”

Obamas have signed a production contract with Netflix.  So how long until Trump adds Netflix to his hit list?

Russian media slammed the Royal Wedding coverage as “propaganda.”  Maybe Trump told Putin his feelings were hurt by not getting an invitation?


How long until someone in GOP suggests stopping school violence by closing schools? After all, education causes Democrats.

Who knew that whole Valerie Plame debacle would one day look so quaint?

Now Trump refuses to follow security protocols on cellphone he uses to call friends and complain Hillary should be locked up for her emails. #WTF?

From TC  “an Amazon customer was dinged $7,000 in shipping fees for three boxes of toilet paper delivered to her residence: “When this Georgia customer saw the charge on her credit card, her first words were ‘holy sh*t'”

(and Trump wants to RAISE Amazon’s shipping costs?”

Legging it out.

Congratulations Justify on his Preakness win. Even if horse doesn’t win the Triple Crown he’ll now actually be a star with legitimate reason to have sex with females he just met.

Best line heard at Preakness – outside the Ladies room – “If women hadn’t had to have spent so much line waiting in bathroom lines, we’d be ruling the world by now.

Open note to all Brandon Belt haters. Do you prefer medium or well-done for your crow?

But is it somewhere in the rule book that every time #SFGiants pitchers walk the lead off batter that batter has to score?


Something like 10 percent of MLB players have a “therapeutic use exception” for Ritalin. While it may not help them hit home runs last I looked they don’t  shoot up schools either.

Sergio Romo made his second one-inning start in a row today.  Worked well. And had to be a lot less stressful for Rays fans than when SF Giants fans watched him pitch the 9th.

That #RoyalWedding was so much fun to watch, guessing some American men on the West Coast will regret not waking up in middle of night to see it. At least two or three of them

MLK quotes from a black preacher and “Stand By Me”sung by a black choir. Just like we always expected to see at a British Royal Wedding.

“And with this I’ll sit down, we gotta get y’all married.” If we didn’t love #BishopMichaelCurry already…


Does the queen sing “God save me?”#RoyalWedding

Maybe Mueller investigation will distract Trump from figuring out what revenge to try to enact on England for not inviting him to #RoyalWedding

Rain all weekend until today in DC. And such a tweet storm Sunday am from Trump.   Reminds all of us who’ve had young children what it’s like after a few days when they’d been cooped up indoors.

“I hereby demand”. Sounds like someone didn’t get enough timeouts when he was three.


I think with Trump and GOP leaders, we’ve largely answered the question “Are you a good witch. or a bad witch?” #Witchhunt

Must admit it was a really ingenious plot for Obama and Clinton to try to bring down Trump by colluding to lose the election and framing him for it. Even Agatha Christie wouldn’t have thought of this one.


Uh oh, today at Liberty University Jimmy Carter joked that his commencement address crowd was bigger than last year’s for Donald Trump. Now @realDonaldTrump has to come up with a nasty nickname for Jimmy too

So can we have another Royal Wedding next weekend tomorrow for distraction from what a clusterf*ck American politics has become?
