Keeping score.

June 17, 2019

Headline in USA Today and Golf Week “Tiger Woods fights off another ‘crappy’ start, finishes on a high note at U.S. Open.” Gosh, did anyone actually win the tournament?

(And again, is there any less effective and more stupid sounding yell in sports than golf fans screaming at the ball “get in the hole”? )

Trump congratulated Gary Woodland on US Open victory. But crickets on NBA finals, US Women’s National Soccer big wins and Stanley Cup (won by mostly Canadian St. Louis Blues). I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

US Women’s team beat Chile 3-0. Waiting for all the haters who complained about the 13-0 win over Thailand now to say the women’s team is slipping.

 

1.5 million people at Raptors. championship parade today in Toronto.   Now we KNOW Trump won’t congratulate NBA champions.  First they take the trophy out of the US.  Next they get a bigger crowd than he did at his inaugural.

For all that Trump is touting filling 20,000 seat Amway Center for his re-election announcement rally, he does know Gators and Seminoles get about 4 times that many for random football games.

Trump praises Florida governor Ron DeSantis for signing bill banning sanctuary cities. Does this mean we can someday extradite Donald from Mar-A-Lago?

 

Egypt’s former president, Mohammed Morsi collapsed in court during a trial and died. Were they serving him Russian tea in prison?

 

 

Trump tweets that “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States” Starting with the young European women who overstay their visas in hopes of finding rich old husbands?

Trump now sending 1,000 troops to Middle East. Can he send one of his sons to lead them or are bone spurs hereditary.

OJ Simpson getting on Twitter 25 years after murders of his wife Nicole and Ron Goldman didn’t seem like a great idea. Bill Cosby – “Hold my beer.”
