Playing the game.

April 30, 2019

One way not to make referees the story of Buck Celtics series – have no game closer than 20 points.

And who knew the more civil Rockets-Warriors game of the two so far would be the game where Curry dislocated his finger, and Harden got his eye lacerated by Draymond Green?

And no ejections tonight,  but  NBA “officials have ejected 12 players from games this postseason, equaling a record set in 1994 and 2003.” And it’s only the 2nd round. When is the league going to start selling referee jerseys?

Donald Trump hosted NASCAR champion Joey Logano at the White House today. Just guessing he didn’t serve Joey cold hamburgers.

Meanwhile, the women’s basketball National Champions Baylor Lady Bears also visited the White House, and DID get served cold fast food, burgers and fries and pizza..  Apparently she laughingly responded “Okay, Donnie. Coooool.”

The Lady Bears were the first women’s team to visit the White House. Guessing they may also be the last.

Not sure about my bucket list, but Caracas, Venezuela, which was a great cruise shore excursion over a decade ago, probably tops my list of “Places I Have Been Where I Have No Interest Now in Going Back.”

On June 3, SFO just announced they will relocate ALL domestic terminal pickups for Uber, Lyft, and Wingz to top level of the domestic hourly parking garage.
And no doubt this change will go as smoothly as everything does these days in terms of flying.

So as first guilty pleas come in for College Admissions Scandal have to wonder, how much did their parents pay to get Jared, Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric into college?

Another horrible thing about latest campus shooting at UNCC, we all know it will be crickets from Donald Trump unless it turns out killer is an immigrant.

Your reminder that on top of everything else,  Senator Susan Collins voted to confirm Attorney General Barr.

Look, I’ll . But there’s still something a little sad that with 20 interesting and diverse Democratic candidates running in 2020, poll leaders are white men who are almost 80.

Also, anyone who doesn’t already think Trump should rot in hell for his “executing babies” lie, should take a few minutes to read this.  Seriously.


Silent whistles?

Two NBA playoff games tonight and in neither was officiating the headline.  No worries though for those who tune in to watch ref – the Warriors Rockets tip off again tomorrow.


NBA fined Chris Paul $35,000 for “aggressively confronting and recklessly making contact with a game official” in Rockets Warriors game 1, but did not suspend him. Well, di$cipline i$ one thing, rating$ are another.


The Raptors got FIVE points from non-starters tonight in a 94-89 loss to the 76ers.    Maybe it would have helped more to have should have sold spaces on their bench to noisy fans.

As everyone “grades” the 2019 NFL draft, your reminder that only was Tom Brady famously a 6th round pick, but also Joe Montana drafted in 3rd round and Drew Brees  in the 2nd.

On Monday Chase sent out (and deleted) a tweet with “hypothetical conversation between a bank customer and the bank. The customer asks, “Why is my balance so low?” and the bank account replies: “Make coffee at home … eat the food that’s already in the fridge … you don’t need a cab, it’s only three blocks.”
What’s Tuesday, the banking company will suggest how customers eat cake?

Donald Trump, along with Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka  filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in hopes to keep the banks from responding to congressional subpoenas.

Right, the most “transparent” President and Presidential family ever.

Former US-North Korea envoy said he signed agreement to pay $2 million for Otto Warmbier and believed Trump had approved the deal. Will Donald’s defense be that everyone knows he doesn’t pay his bills?

Rod Rosenstein in his resignation letter thanked Trump “for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations.”   So for his next gig is Rosenstein  auditioning his deadpan style  for Saturday Night Live?

The wannabe domestic terrorist apprehended in Los Angeles is an American Army veteran who appears to have hated a whole lot of people. But seriously, isn’t Americans hating a whole lot of other people Trump’s main goal?
