Missing sox

May 9, 2019

The White House website called them the “Red Socks.”  Then they said the team was the “World Cup Series” champions.   Then Trump said Lincoln lost the Civil War.  And half the .team decided not to attend


Watching this Red Sox  dumpster fire with White House today reminds me that perhaps there’s ONE silver lining with Saints being robbed from Super Bowl….


Well, at least there’s about zero chance that Trump White House will get a chance to misspell name of whatever NBA team wins the championship.

Weather in Denver today looked almost as cold as it used to be at Candlestick Park.

Not sure what game they play at Coors Field, but some days it bears no relation to actual baseball.



as Senator Grassley joins Senator Burr in backing the subpoena for Jr. to testify, have to wonder, how long until Donald Trump throws his own son under the bus?

Alabama Senate trying to pass one of most restrictive abortion laws in country, making it illegal as soon as fetus is “in utero.”
But to be fair, at the moment of conception, a fetus is only 14 years away from being a suitable date for Roy Moore.

Since anyone who is an accessory can also be tried for murder, and it DOES take two to conceive, shouldn’t all these restrictive new abortion laws also mean states should charge father of fetus for abortions too?

Trump says John Kerry “should be prosecuted” for violating the Logan Act for talking to Iran. Did Putin tell him to say that?

First it was Kim Jong Un, now Trump says Chinese President Xi Jinping wrote him a ‘beautiful letter.”
Does anyone think Donald has ever even written “beautiful letters’ to his wives?

Trump laughed about a rally supporter’s suggestion to shoot migrants. Like he laughs about extending his term. And that oldie-but-goodie ‘Russia, if you’re listening…..”

For whom the whistle tolls.

San Jose Sharks win game 7 to advance to next round of NHL playoffs, 3-2 over Avalanche. Though Colorado did have a game-tying goal called back on a controversial offsides call.
So 2019 – the year of the officials – continues.
Can’t wait to see what NBA comes up with next.

Meanwhile, at least there isn’t likely to be any nationwide controversy over the Preakness. Because this year,  with both Maximum Security and Country House out, who’s actually going to be watching the Preakness?

ESPN notes that Duke already has a top recruit for men’s basketball in 2020, getting a commitment from “five-star point guard Jeremy Roach.”
And not like he needs to worry about competition, Roach knows the 2019 star recruits will have left for NBA by time he shows up.

So for Meghan and Harry it’s baby Archie.
Well, it beats “Jughead.”

Trump today formally asserted executive privilege over the Mueller report. This worked out so well for Nixon.

An anti-vaxx Kentucky teen who sued the school over vaccines has come down with chicken pox.  Is it wrong to hope when he’s an adult that he gets shingles?

Jim Jordan wants the public to know as much about the Mueller Report as he wanted them to know about the sexual abuse of wrestlers at Ohio State. Period.


Trump tweeting today about visiting “one of my favorite places, the Florida Panhandle.”
Not that Donald would ever go there, except that if Panhandle were (rightly) part of Alabama, Florida would be a blue state.

More from Florida rally “If we want to drive them crazy, I’ll say in 10 years they’ll go crazy,’ Trump said, joking about serving 12 years in office.”
Uh, does anyone think Trump actually ever jokes?

Trump sarcastically attacking Mayor Pete “We have a young man, Buttigieg. … He’s got a great chance, doesn’t he? He’ll be great, representing us against President Xi of China.”
Uh, considering Pete knows 8 languages and can probably learn Mandarin, he might be great.

And he’d probably p*ss off fewer other countries.
