Not bowled over.

June 3, 2019

The 2020 College Football Bowl lineups and conference matchups are out.   And the Pac 12 is now going to the Independence Bowl? Well, that ought to draw at least a few hundred fans to Shreveport…

Meanwhile 11 of 15 ACC teams will be going to bowls. What did NCAA think football postseason is, March Madness?

Roger Goodell on shortening NFL preseason “”I feel what we should be doing is always to the highest quality, and I’m not sure preseason games meet that level right now.”
Gosh, what was his first clue?

SF Giants choose OF Hunter Bishop as their first pick  in 2019 draft. Well, last Giant who went to Serra High School and ASU turned out okay.   #BarryBonds

Although to be fair, is there anything less likely to be accurate than an MLB draft analysis?

Trump’s first actions upon landing in London are to verbally attack Mayor Khan and to complain about their televisions showing CNN. Can’t imagine why the Brits detest him so much.

Perhaps if Trump is so upset about CNN he could try watching BBC World News.  They do cover news in English.

Queen Elzabeth II gave President Trump an abridged first edition of Winston Churchill’s “The Second World War” today.
Troll level – Royal Master.

Other Presidents, including George W. and Barack Obama, have stayed at Buckingham Palace, but Trump was told he couldn’t due to “renovations.”  I guess they decided to deal with the 51 bedrooms other that aren’t the Queen’s all at once?

 

Trump ended up at the U.S. ambassador’s residence,  though his family and entourage ended up at a hotel.    Have to wonder, as Trump clan took over top floor of that hotel, the Corinthia, how many other hotels had told them there was no room at the inn?

Maybe this is what happens when you tell the tailor to make a tux for a man who is 6’3″ and 239 pounds?
