Winning state of mind

May 18, 2019

It’s all a state of mind. Maximum Security and Bodexpress both are sure they won their races.

But come on, Bodexpress runs the Preakness, finishes ahead of some horses, and then adds another lap for good measure. Where is the endorsement contract from Waymo?

At this point only way Brooks Koepka won’t win the PGA is if he veers into someone else’s lane.

So how much karma credit do we give that Trump medal for Tiger Woods missing the PGA cut?

In Casablanca, Rick reconnects with Ilsa, and puts at least a rose-colored glow on their past – “We’ll always have Paris.” And in 2019, Pablo Sandoval, prodigal Panda, reconnects and reminds SF Giants fans, “We’ll always have 2014.”


So who had Michigan Rep Justin Amash as the first GOP elected official (who isn’t retiring) to say the Emperor has no Clothes?

Uh oh.. Fox News poll..“On the Russia investigation, who do you trust more to tell the truth?”
Between Trump and Mueller, 45% said they trusted the special counsel, 27% said the president
Between Mueller and Barr, 40% said they trusted the special counsel, 22% said the attorney general,
Between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration, 44% said they trusted the Democrats, 33%, said the White House,
So what’s Fox going to do? Fire their pollster?

Why there is no satire. Donald Trump tweets out more “Right to Life” rant tweets Saturday night, at the same time he prepares to pardon war criminals who executed innocent people.

And while many people may be tired of seeing Alec Baldwin play  Donald Trump in SNL, guessing many more people are tired of seeing Donald Trump play a President in the White House.


What’s in a name?

May 18, 2019

Only two games into Eastern Conference NBA finals, but looking like national sportswriters are going to have to start learning how to spell Giannis Antetokounmpo.

After playing so well deep into NBA playoffs, the Toronto Raptors really looked lost Friday night. Who do they think they are, the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Tiger Woods has missed the cut in PGA Championship. So to CBS, which is televising the tournament, thoughts and prayers.



Beleaguered Nationals bullpen gave up 11 runs in the last three innings tonight in 14-6 to the Chicago Cubs.   As SF Giants fan this makes me worried Washington has extra impetus to try to trade for Pablo Sandoval. They might need the Panda to pitch.

San Jose Sharks are apparently upset because people think they got three major “lucky” calls so far in NHL playoffs.
Not perhaps as upset as the three teams those calls went against.

(Silver lining of Friday’s game 4 loss, the officials didn’t give the Sharks any game-winning calls to be defensive about.)


Anyone know who the favorite for Saturday’s Preakness is? Yeah, me neither.


RIP Grumpy Cat. But really, these days aren’t we all grumpy cat?

And Xena, age 15, thinks she can outgrumpy anyone.  grumpy2

IVF is expensive, but has a high success rate, so it’s popular with couples who can afford it. Most extra embryos though, end up donated for research or destroyed. I’m sure the GOP reason for not condemning procedure has nothing to do with rich donors. #ProLifeMyAss

New state motto – “Alabama, where sex has consequences. Unless you’re a man.”
Barry Hovis, a GOP Missouri State Rep, talked about “date rape” along with “consensual rape’ in debate before the state passed a very strict abortion bill.  Now he said he misspoke.
Translation, ‘I had no idea anyone would actually report what I said.”
Gas prices across the country have gone up about $1 a gallon in last month. I missed the Trump tweet taking credit.
