Almost turkey time.

November 21, 2018

Derek Carr – “I want to mess up the draft I don’t want the first pick. I want to win all these games. I want everybody to be mad at me for that. That’s what I want to accomplish.”
Let’s see, Oakland Raiders do still have a game against Broncos, but they also play the  Ravens, Bengals, Steelers, and Chiefs, Kansas City TWICE.  Is Carr trying to be drug-tested?

Manny Machado is saying he didn’t really mean his “not going to be Johnny Hustle” comment “I was trying to talk about how I’m not the guy who is eye wash…” Translation, okay, I wasn’t thinking how much this might cost me in free agency.

After a number of  “off-field issues”,  Miami Hurricanes have announced starting wide receiver Jeff Thomas is no longer part of the football program.  Too soon to start a pool on which SEC team will decide Thomas needs a second chance?



Happy Thanksgiving Eve. Otherwise known as “As God Is My Witness I’ll Never Go To The Grocery Store Again” Day.

High winds may ground Macy’s Thanksgiving balloons tomorrow. Suppose it would be really tacky to make a joke about biggest bloated orange balloon having abandoned NY for Florida?

After being criticized for not visiting the troops, Trump has decided to do a teleconference with the military on Thanksgiving.


Oh, I’m sure seeing POTUS on his golf course in the Florida sunshine before he eats a dinner at his gold-plated private club will do wonders for troop morale.


Uh, Donald Trump “The largest sources of U.S. imported oil: Canada (40%), Saudi Arabia (11%), Venezuela (9%), Mexico (8%), and Colombia (4%).”
So where’s the thanks to Justin Trudeau? And Canada doesn’t kill journalists.

Because nothing says being Presidential like starting a feud with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court the day before Thanksgiving.
Are we great yet?


It is possible that the fate of Trump’s presidency may lie in the hands of the Supreme Court and Donald picks a fight with Chief Justice Roberts. Pretty safe to say impulse control is not Trump’s strong suit.


Suggestion from George Takei on Twitter -“For those of you forced to sit with Trump-supporting relatives on Thursday, when they bring up migrant caravans or witch hunts or Brett Kavanaugh or anything else that Twitler spews, just smile and say, “Looks like Nancy Pelosi will be Speaker soon. Would you pass the gravy?””


Way over

So have the Rams and Chiefs stopped scoring yet?

UCF is actually AHEAD of OhioState in the  CFP rankings. “I feel so sorry for Urban Meyer” said no one outside Columbus.

Trump leaves town for first visit of year to Mar-A-Lago and woeful Washington Wizards rally for their biggest win of the season against LA Clippers.  Coincidence?

Rolling Stones will play in Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium in May. Might be the first announced sell-out in years where fans will actually be in the seats.

Over-under for Rams Chiefs game yesterday was 64. Can only imagine what it might be if the Saints play either or both those teams in the postseason.


NBC is giving Megyn Kelly a $30 million severance package. Performers on SNL make from $7,500 to $25,000 an episode, with most of them at the lower range. Live from New York – Pass the Popcorn..

Ivanka Trump’s use of personal emails brings to mind the old joke about ignorance and apathy. Did she not know or not care?


So if Osama Bin Laden had rented out a bunch of rooms in Trump hotels and bought a lot of condos would Donald Trump have said “maybe he did and maybe he didn’t order 9-11?”

Now that Nancy Pelosi appears to have cemented her power and the Democrats seem on their way to calling off the circular firing squad, for now, too soon to start a poll on when Donald Trump will attack her again?



Wonder what Trump would do if someone told him the Saudis helped Hillary Clinton kill Vince Foster?

Donald Trump wanted not only to prosecute his vanquished foe Hillary Clinton but also Comey. Seriously, James Comey? Is that any kind of gratitude for someone who gave Trump the White House?


Trump tweet of the night “So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian. Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?”
Okay, it’s a capitalist country. Who’s going to put a comedy show on with Michelle Wolf to compete with WHCA dinner and kill them in the ratings?
