The big time?

August 6, 2018

QB Chazz Surratt was one of 13 UNC Carolina football players suspended up to 4 games this season for selling school-issued, special-edition Nike Jordan shoes.
So are the Tarheels now a big-time football program?

At a rally of more than 200 people at Ohio State supporting Urban Meyer over allegations of him ignoring domestic violence, one speaker was the father of Ezekiel Elliott. Some statements, sadly, don’t even need a punchline.

Ohio State says investigation of coach Urban Meyer’s handling of a domestic violence complaint against former coach will be done in 2 weeks. Well, yeah Buckeyes open against Oregon State in less than 4 weeks. #priorities

Coach Urban Meyer had no problem keeping a murderer on the team, anyone really think he’d draw the line at domestic violence? #aaronhernandez

I hope Rick Gates has a good food taster.

Miss the days when the biggest regular trainwreck on TV involved #TheBachelorette.

On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah joking that Trump isn’t attacking him like he attacks other prominent black men.   Maybe Donald thinks Trevor is just really really tan.

As nasty a gang as MS-13 they are doing less damage in USA now than the gang in the White House.

So Hillary colluded with Russians but Don Jr and I just met with them to get information on an opponent. Got it. The gospel according to Trump


I remember the days when it was possible to be both a Republican and a scientist.
Trump’s latest tweet –
“Governor Jerry Brown must allow the Free Flow of the vast amounts of water coming from the North and foolishly being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Can be used for fires, farming and everything else. Think of California with plenty of Water – Nice! Fast Federal govt. approvals.”

While Trump rants about wasting water, wonder how many millions of gallons it takes to water his golf courses?

Trump has canceled press briefings & will not appear before media while he is on vacation at his golf club in Bedminster.
So again, the man who would run into a school to face a killer with an assault rifle is afraid of journalists with microphones…


Newly signed Roberto Osuna got the win tonight in San Francisco for Houston. But you’d think the current World Champions Astros wouldn’t have needed to remake Damn Yankees.


Down and not quite out.

August 6, 2018

Back to Yankees-Red Sox on Sunday Night Baseball tonight. But don’t worry, for anyone tired of “same old same old” ESPN is showing Cubs (vs. Nats) next week….



Now that Yankees  have been almost eliminated from AL East maybe ESPN and Fox can find another team to focus on in their place?

On the other hand, the Red Sox Yankees game lasted 4 hours 39 minute minutes and was over 4 hours just for 9 innings. Maybe the whole point of showing the games is maximum number of commercials?

Interesting how as Roberto Osuna returns from a domestic violence suspension, MLB’s other star closer who has served a domestic violence suspension,  Aroldis Chapman, just blew a 3-run lead in the 9th against the Red Sox.   Mean bitch karma weighing in on the matter?

For women fans, this statement from Osuna ought to be reassuring… not

From Astros beat reporter Brian McTaggert.  “When asked if he had a message to fans, especially female fans (via translator): “At this point, we don’t know what’s happened, what’s going to happen and we have to wait for that to play out. To the community, I’m just very happy to be here and support this team.”

Trump finally gets around to praising California’s brave firefighters in a tweet. Oops, never mind, he’s ignoring the firefighters and blaming the fires on California’s environmental laws….. ?

Sen. John Cornyn told Cory Booker to “get a grip” after Booker said he cried “tears of rage” over Trump’s rhetoric. Meanwhile ranting about NBA players at midnight and calling the media “dangerous and sick” is perfectly normal for a President.

Maybe with these people who’d rather be Russian than Democrat we could give Putin one red state and let them move. Any suggestions?

Imagine what the reaction would have been if Democrats had t-shirts saying I’d rather be Kenyan than Republican.


Molly Ivins used to say she liked George W. Bush. “But I also like my dry cleaner and I don’t think he should be President.”. How much do I wish Molly were alive and commenting on Trump…

If the Trump Tower meeting was “totally legal,” why didn’t Donald and Don Jr. brag about it and suggest others in GOP do the same?
