The best of work times…

March 13, 2019

On Wed. March 13,  Facebook and Instagram went down for about 6-7 hours. Forcing millions of Americans actually to work….

Of course, we are about a week away from the first round of March Madness.  So we might be approaching have a record for the most and least productive days in the same month.

But yeah, the horror.  Facebook was down, and frustrated users have nowhere to post it.

At least  Twitter kept working. Good thing, if it went down Trump would probably declare another National Emergency.

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson said it was a “bad decision” to post picture on Instagram account at 105 mph.    Uh, driving 105 mph AND posting it? At least two bad decisions.

Meanwhile, Drew Brees posted about his son’s flag football game.  #GoSaints

Antonio Brown says his ultimate goal is to pass Jerry Rice as the NFL’s all-time leading receiver. Rice has 22,895 yards.   Brown, 31, has 11,207.   Before the Raiders traded for him did they check Antonio for concussions?

When it says on a tube of hand cream “Please do not ingest” we either have too many lawyers or too many stupid people. Or both.

 

Not saying she did or didn’t cheat. But a black girl who raised her test scores in similar fashion to some of those caught this week, had HER SATs almost instantly flagged and invalidated.  

With names of parents being released should be pretty obvious to their fellow students at Georgetown, USC etc, which kids had help during SATs and faked athletic resumes to get into college. Womp womp.

So Singer claims he got 761 kids admitted to college through “side doors.” Sounds like there’s a lot more indictments, and maybe expulsions, ahead?

And remember when an argument against affirmative action was too many qualified kids ending up in college?

Marc Ragovin muses “If I had only pursued my tetherball career, I could have been a Stanford Cardinal.”

Fight on?

March 13, 2019

One Stanford coach (sailing) indicted today.   Another coach from UCLA .   Three USC coaches and Sr. Associate AD from USC indicted.

First time Cardinal and Bruins are glad to end up behind Trojans.

 

SEC schools and other football powerhouses must be smiling today. At least no one needs to bribe coaches for non-athlete students just to get admitted.

Le’Veon Bell expected to sign 4-year, $52.5 million contract with Jets.  And the Giants trade Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns for not much.   Looking like nothing is going to get in the way of New York football fans planning ski weeks or cruises in January.

Los Angeles Lakers, at 31-36, are 6 1/2 games out of the final Western Conference playoff spot.  But just think, had Lebron only stayed in the East,  a team with that record would be 1/2 game out of the postseason.

Meanwhile, Tim Tebow was cut today from Mets’ big-league camp, but still is ‘all-in’ on chasing his baseball dream. Well, if he’s only got AAA talent has he talked to the Orioles?.

 

Okay, does anyone think with people willing to pay millions to get their kids into college that there aren’t some Mar-A-Lago members & Trump donors about to be arrested?

 

 

So has anyone checked to see if Brett Kavanaugh got into Yale as an alleged top athlete in beer pong?

What probably really upsets Donald about the College Admissions scandal more than anything?   These parents probably got a cheaper deal than he did to get Don Jr, Ivanka and Eric into Penn and Georgetown.

 

Donald Trump is very upset at New York. Well, not like he has any ties to the city for a life post-presidency.

And meanwhile, is he asking us to take all the computers out of Air Force One?
