Moose!

January 22, 2019

Mike Mussina just elected to Baseball Hall of Fame. About time. Go Stanford.

Chiefs have fired their defensive coordinator after loss to Patriots on Sunday. Well, of course, he neglected to tell players they weren’t allowed to TOUCH Tom Brady.

Saints have been criticized a lot for play-calling and not going for 3 running plays before kicking a FB late in 4th, when Rams would have had it back with about a minute left. Actually the play calling was vintage Payton, going for the game-winning TD. Which looking at videos they would have had easily. …

More people in Los Angeles watched Chiefs-Patriots game than Rams-Saints.  Hope the Super Bowl doesn’t conflict with a Lakers game.

Now at least one airline warning “customers traveling from US airports may experience longer wait times than usual at security TSA checkpoints due to current US Govt. shutdown. We strongly recommend customers arrive at US airports at least 3 hrs before departure time of their flight.”
Are we great yet?

So now that the birthers have started in on Kamala Harris, suppose it would save time if Cory Booker brings a copy of his birth certificate with him when he announces he is running for President.

And now that Supreme Court has let Trump transgender military ban stand can’t wait to see all the MAGAers stampeding to recruiting offices to take transgender troops’ places.

As Senate prepares to vote Thursday on a bill to open government until Feb. 8 while working on border security funding, your reminder – with McConnell’s blessing and support, they passed “near-identical legislation on bipartisan lines before the shutdown began.”

So Donald Trump is insisting he still wants to do SOTU next week. Fine, why doesn’t he do it from real center of his government -Fox News Studios?

Trying to imagine if a liberal public school had organized a field trip for students to DC for the purpose of marching for abortion rights….

I’m so old I can remember that even the worst Winter or Spring break behavior from high school or college students didn’t require a PR firm.

 

 

Lara Trump to furloughed workers “It is a little bit of pain, but it’s going to be for the future of our country….”
So is she going to send them some lovely Trump branded cake to eat during the shutdown?

Screw dat

January 22, 2019

Not only did ref no-call screw Saints yesterday, also denied fans a chance for a GUARANTEED record breaking Super Bowl. Up until now oldest QB to win the game was Peyton Manning, 39. Brees is 40, Brady 41.

Your reminder that the NFL, a multi-billion dollar operation, still uses part-time officials.

Referee Bill Vinovich who chose not to flag Rams’ Robey-Coleman for PI or helmet-to-helmet works most of the time as certified public accountant. Wonder if he pays the same careful attention to tax returns?

Who knew that answer to “Who Dat say Gonna Beat Dem Saints?” was the refs?

NFL apparently spoke to Sean Payton on the phone less than an hour after the game and admitted that should have been a pass interference.
Well, hey, not like it was game changing or anything.

Has anyone told the Rams that not only can they not get away with pass interference during the Super Bowl, it’s roughing the passer if they get close enough to muss up Tom Brady’s hair.

 

I’m so old I remember having a President who spent MLK day volunteering in DC soup kitchens, instead of rage tweeting from his bedroom.

(and the same President who wants to be known for creating Space Force  was in his bedroom last night rage tweeting during a full lunar eclipse.)

Look, we all know if MLK Jr. was alive today Donald Trump would have given him a nasty nickname and attacked him as a radical leftist.

Trump did visit MLF  Memorial day in DC today for about 2 minutes, and said not a word about Martin Luther King Jr. At least he didn’t give a speech about himself.

Rudy Giuliani told Fox News today that his team & Robert Mueller’s “communicated” about Cohen-Trump BuzzFeed News article and “agreed a significant portion of it was false.”

And why should anyone doubt anything Rudy says?

 

Fox News pundit Mark Levin… “I keep hearing it’s day 29 of the government shutdown. It’s amazing how we count weekends, Christmas, New Year’s, Martin Luther King’s birthday on Monday as the government shutdown.”
Right, because nobody has to eat or pay bills on weekends and holidays.”

Trump claiming Nancy Pelosi thinks walls are immoral. Uh no, Pelosi didn’t say all walls are immoral – she said YOUR proposed wall was “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”
And Nancy is right.
