Too late?

April 8, 2019

Texas Tech Virginia men’s national championship game tipped off tonight at 920p  Eastern Time.

So all those young kids who dream of someday playing college basketball might have been able to stay up for national anthem?

 

So a call that Stevie Wonder could have seen doesn’t get reversed and decides who goes to Super Bowl.
And a call that isn’t even crystal clear on replay plays a major part in deciding who cuts down nets in Minneapolis.
What’s coming in NBA Playoffs?

Don’t follow the Utah Jazz. But I just became a Kyle Korver fan.  Worth a few minutes to read. Seriously.

In 23 ABs, Connor Joe and Michael Reed had 1 hit between them for SF Giants.  So will the team still try to sell their “game-used” jerseys?

As measles cases in US continue to rise, this would be a good time for a Democratic Presidential candidate to come out strongly pro-vaccine. Because we could be heading for a REAL national emergency.

Trump just fired Secret Service chief Randolph “Tex” Alles. So what did Tex see that he shouldn’t have seen?

So how many asylum-seekers including children would have had to die under Kirstjen Nielsen’s watch for Trump to be happy with her job performance?

Kind of ironic that man who is seldom seen with his own family considers family separation the worst thing he can do to potential immigrants.

Seriously if Kirstjen Nielsen she wasn’t evil enough at what point does Trump run out of people willing to work for him? #HowLowCanYouGo

Years ago, in Las Vegas, a friend and I wanted to be silly for a couple hours in afternoon and play nickel slots. Since another friend preferred sun time, we managed, with some effort, to sneak her into the Paris Las Vegas pool
Apparently the Chinese spy got access to Mar-A-Lago by saying she was there to use THEIR pool.
You would think Trump staff at “Winter White House” would have better security than a mid-priced Vegas resort.

Chuck Grassley, the most senior Senate Republican, now “warning” Trump about firing more DHS officials. And Chuck says he’s “concerned.” Who does Grassley think he is, Susan Collins?

There’s actually a scary but simple possible reason for Trump to decimate Homeland Security. If DHS fails to stop a major terrorist attack then Donald might plan to declare martial law afterwards – suspending all rights and laws and elections he wants.

Here comes not enough rain?

April 8, 2019

(oops, this is old draft that didn’t post somehow from Thursday, but I am getting it posted now.)

 

SF Giants fans worried for a while their home opener would be rained out.  Then alas they discovered after a four-run first by the Rays that it wouldn’t be.

So SF Giants year has not started out perfectly. But at least they didn’t give $161 million to Chris Davis. Who started out year 0-17 with 11ks.

 

Vikings CB Holton Hill suspended four games of the season for violating NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs.  Hill reportedly claimed issues with marijuana.  Uh, shouldn’t a cornerback on pot enhance the performance of the receiver?

Vanderbilt, which was winless in SEC this year in men’s basketball, just hired Memphis Grizzlies assistant coach Jerry Stackhouse with a six-year contract.
Well, with such low expectations guessing he Stackhouse might survive as coach at least three years.

 

Robert Kraft apparently trying very hard to keep jurors from seeing him paying for sex, claiming it was an illegal videotape. Who knew mean bitch Karma might be able to beat the Patriots?

Now apparently some House Democrats are concerned Mueller report may be destroyed.
Uh, just guessing you don’t get to be head of the FBI by being incautious with evidence. Think Robert might have kept one or two copies?

As Trump ranted today, it’s not CNN or MSNBC or NY Times or Washington Post, it’s “the “press… They are truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

If you’re not afraid you’re not paying attention.

Buried in a hit piece on Biden. The Daily Mail quotes Jill Biden’s autobiography, where she says the family’s closeness made her uncomfortable at first -“Joe and his two young sons ‘never wanted to miss a chance to wrap their arms around each other or give a kiss’ after the death of their mother.”

Trump says he is skipping the White House Correspondents Dinner this year because he “likes positive things.”
Some statements don’t even need a punchline.
