Bowling for green?

December 22, 2018

Four more made-for-TV college football bowls Saturday. And can anyone who isn’t a gambler or alum of a school involved say they’re seriously planning to watch any of them?

One of Saturday’s bowls is the “Dollar General Bowl.”  Is that the price they hope fans will pay to attend?

With Cincinnati trading for Yasiel Puig, Reds may not contend in 2019, but at least dugout may have thermo-nuclear capability.

Troy Tulowitzki is being paid $38 million by the Toronto Blue Jays not to play. If SF Giants just sign him to play along with Pablo Sandoval ($18 million due from Red Sox) would they set a record for players being paid by other teams.

Must admit, it takes a certain kind of stable genius to shutdown the government over a wall that he promised us Mexico was going to pay for.

Reports that Trump has attacked Matt Whitaker because POTUS feels prosecutors that the acting AG oversees have filed charges that make him look bad. Truly amazing that buses run in DC with all the people Donald has thrown under them.

 

Melania Trump has gone down with her son to Mar-a-Lago while Donald stays in Washington. So seems like SOMEONE at least got what she wanted for Christmas.

Lost in the craziness of  Friday morning’s tweet storm from Donald Trump “I know tech better than anyone…”
Says the stable genius who can’t even use spellcheck on his phone.

TSA workers will remain on job, but they will not be paid, except presumably retroactively. And you think airport experience was bad enough before Government Shutdown.

Trump says he is prepared for a “very long shutdown.” Did someone forget to tell him new Democrat-controlled House starts on January 3?

Quote of the day “Rather than talking about putting up a fence, why don’t we work out some recognition of our mutual problems? Make it possible for them to come here legally with a work permit, and they, while they’re working and earning here, they’d pay taxes here. And when they want to go back, they can go back. They can cross. Open borders both ways”
From that noted liberal Ronald Reagan.

On a brighter note, today is literally the darkest day of the year in the US. So we’re all uphill from now!
