Blink and you missed it..

December 21, 2018

Yes, Thursday December 20, was the “Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.

(and if you knew without Google who was playing in it…. well, you just MIGHT have too much time on your hands.)

On those days when you feel overwhelmed and unworthy at work, remember Nathan Peterman, signed by the Raiders, has a job as an NFL Quarterback.

 

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, after he retires, again for health reason, will co-teach a course at the school on character  and leadership.

Some statements don’t even need a punchline.

Saints coach Sean Payton “The 46-man roster on game day is soon to be, I think, will be soon dated. I think that’s gotta change
If we’re interested in health and safety — and it sounds like we are; at least that’s something we talk about a lot — that number should be higher. And that’ll affect the overall roster size. And that might cost a little bit more money, but that’s the price.”

Uh “cost a little bit more money.” Wonder if NFL will suspend Payton again for that.

Can’t stop thinking about all those voters who thought there wouldn’t be any difference between Donald and Hillary…

Though in related news,  Donald Trump has announced his next book will teach executives healthy management techniques.

GoFundMe campaign for the wall up to over $9 million Wonder how many MAGAers who have donated would balk at, for example, paying $1 more for coffee or a burger to give restaurant workers a living wage

 

Even Fox News is making James Mattis’s departure a headline. But in their “Five things you need to know about Mattis” – #2 is “Obama appointed him to commander of U.S. Central Command.”

That moment when the last adult in the room decides the spoiled toddler is too much to handle….

 

So if you REALLY wanted to lead a war on Christmas, wouldn’t a first step be furloughing employees right before the holiday?

Wasn’t that long ago I bemoaned not being able to get on a flight for several hours without landing & thinking “WTF did Trump do now?”
Now we can’t even go for lunch or a coffee break.

Yesterday Trump tweeted “We have defeated ISIS in Syria.”
Today’s tweet – “Russia, Iran, Syria & many others are not happy about the U.S. leaving, despite what the Fake News says, because now they will have to fight ISIS and others, who they hate, without us.”
So we defeated them but they are back already? This is SO confusing…

Let’s hope no one tells Donald Trump that Santa Claus is a foreigner without a visa giving gift to people regardless of their immigration status.

I do think today the Democratic Virtual Advent Calendar just exploded.

But hey, if we have a government shutdown tomorrow, at least furloughed workers will be able to say “Merry Christmas!”
