NFL Competition?

July 11, 2018

After their loss to Croatia, England was fined $70K after players wore ‘unauthorized socks.’ This is FIFA’s way of showing they are real football?

Giants scored four runs in the first today, then none until the 13th.  The team had a slumber party for fans on the field after today’s game.. This was not meant as an invitation for Giants offense to get a head-start.

Buster Posey had the game winning RBI in the 13th,  maybe he decided no way he was spending ANY more time in catcher’s crouch.

 

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh apparently had “tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt” over past decade from buying Nationals season & playoff tickets. Well, good for him Nats never made the World Series.

Wait a minute, who knew they were ALLOWED to score in the 1st five minutes of a World Cup game?

Damn, England loses World Cup semi. Could the week get any worse. Oh, Trump is arriving tomorrow. Never mind.

Asked about World Cup & Wimbledon finals overlapping, Roger Federer replied “I’m more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on.”
Well, now Roger has time to watch both.

Papa John CEO John Schnatter  resigned today. For being racist enough to use the N-word? Or for being stupid enough to use it on a conference call?

From @TheAtlantic – ICE spends more than $2 billion a year on jails, & about 70% percent of that goes to private contractors. Follow the money.

Senate has overwhelming passed two resolutions condemning Trump on trade and NATO. So are non-binding resolutions the new #ThoughtsAndPrayers?

 

Forget military parade. Does Queen Elizabeth II have a picture at Windsor Castle she could show Trump of Charles I?

 

-Europeans watching NATO summit “USA is DEFINITELY not sending us their best.”

“Germany is a captive of Russia.”
I guess we should give @realDonaldTrump credit for saying this stuff with a straight face.

Trump’s opening remarks at NATO. This is not SNL cold open.
“Good morning, everybody. Good morning to the media — the legitimate media and the fake-news media. Good morning to them. A lot of good people here. Surprising.”
