So about MNF.

What Arena Football stadium did they play it in?


Rams and Chiefs together in ONE game put up more than 70% of the points Arizona Cardinals have put up all season. (105 to 145.)

On the other hand, 7 combined turnovers?  5 from Mahomes and 2 from Goff.  Not perhaps the most perfect game.
Uh, really? Arkansas suspended two DB for their final football game against Missouri for taking photos and talking with members of Mississippi State’s dance team before kickoff last weekend.
Yeah, fraternizing with cheerleaders must be the reason the Razorbacks lost 52-6. #Priorities
So the Washington Redskins have now signed Mark Sanchez as backup QB? Talk about a butt fumble.

A Norwegian Cruise Line ship that left on a 10-day Caribbean cruise Friday broke down in Puerto Rico and NCL has had to cancel the rest of the cruise. Not sure what will be worse for many passengers, missing out on a vacation, or having to spend Thanksgiving at home with their families?

So I understand that Donald Trump is too big a snowflake to attend WHCA dinner.
What I don’t understand is why WHCA is so cowardly they don’t even want to hurt his feelings in absentia.

San Francisco’s Madame Tussaud’s just debuted their wax Donald Trump. I am not making this next statement up, from museum marketing director Matthew Clarkson – “Every other wax figure at Madame Tussauds has human hair, but Trump’s orange mane could not be realistically duplicated with anything human. The sculptor settled on yak hair.”
When her father’s number one campaign promise was in response to Hillary Clinton’s emails – #LockHerUp – and she claims she “didn’t know the rules” there’s only one question for Ivanka Trump-
Are you dumb as a rock. Or do you believe we are?”
Kellyanne Conway: “No president has shown greater respect for the military and the veterans.”
Almost. What she meant to say was “If we had no president, an empty chair would have shown greater respect for the military and the veterans.”
So will Donald Trump pardon a Thanksgiving turkey this year? Or will he just say “Forget it, I like turkeys that don’t get captured.”

Marching and running and passing in….

Not sure what’s more miraculous this year. That the Saints offense is so dazzling? Or that the Saints defense is actually competent.

Would like to thank the Saints today for providing a lovely few hours diversion from all the current crap in the world. (Eagles fans can disregard this statement.)

Somehow I can’t find a score. Anyone know how 49ers did against Bye Week?

Gregg Popovich has indicated he doesn’t want to coach forever, Steve Kerr could get tired of locker-room drama. Looking better and better for

From an anonymous friend – “What if we could mobilize 15,000 golf caddies and send them to CA to rake forest floors with their sand-trap rakes? Anyone know someone who owns a bunch of golf courses?”

Another inhuman thing about Donald Trump, besides not owning a pet, is there any evidence that he actually has a favorite sports team?

The Cleveland Browns are reportedly interviewing Condoleezza Rice to be their head coach.
Your sad reminder that the job George W. Bush really wanted was commissioner of Major League Baseball.


For those wondering, why Donald Trump might be acting particularly unhinged lately, your reminder that due to election, weather, mass shootings and fires, he hasn’t been able to golf for several weeks. Womp Womp

Asked to grade his presidency, Donald Trump “I would give myself an A+, is that enough? Can I go higher than that?”
Another step closer to his own DSM page.

Two close elections remind us, again, that there is nothing REALLY wrong with Florida that couldn’t be fixed by removing the Panhandle and making it officially part of Alabama.

So Donald Trump says he hasn’t listened to the Khashoggi murder tape. Maybe because he already heard the script in advance?

As Speaker John Boehner regularly used his young conservative members as a reason he couldn’t make more liberal compromises with Obama.  Nancy Pelosi as Speaker can play the same hand in reverse and better.


Don’t get me wrong, I like Sherrod Brown of Ohio, it’s possible Democrats may need a white man to win the Presidency in 2020.
But just pointing out. Sherrod, while a friend of Bernie’s, endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
