SF Giants 13, San Diego Padres 2,

Pittsburgh Pirates 18, Chicago Cubs 5

So did MLB bring some leftover baseballs home from London?

Two days into NBA free agency, who’s going to sponsor all the uniform patches that say “Hi, my name is…”

What if Kawhi decides to troll us all and pull a Bryce Harper, ie waiting to sign until the preseason starts?

The first Sony Walkman was introduced 40 years ago today. And Millennials are going “the WHAT?”

After the debates Tucker Carlson called Cory Booker “one of the whitest candidates among 2020 Democrats.” Per USA Today “Booker’s campaign declined to comment on Carlson’s remarks.”
If you can’t say anything nice…

 

Direct quote from Trump as reported by Fox News website tonight on the homeless situation in America “”It’s disgraceful. I’m going to maybe and I’m looking at it very seriously. We’re doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we’re doing now. But we’re looking at it very seriously because you can’t do that.”

This is not a well man.

 

More WTAF from Trump and homelessness – ” I had a situation when I first became president. We had certain areas of Washington, D.C., where that was starting to happen, and I ended it very quickly.”’
So what, he picked people off the street and hired them? Explains a lot.

The Pentagon has partially approved Trump’s request, and will have a stationary display of tanks in DC on the 4th of July. An aide the preliminary cost for transporting and displaying the tanks is about $870,000.
Wow, that would buy a lot of soap and toothpaste.

White House statement “It is sad but not shocking that the haters choose to attack Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to the president, when she is promoting U.S. efforts to empower women through strategic partnerships with world leaders.”
Looks like Sarah Sanders may be gone, but she left behind her a goodly supply of burnt facts.

Guess no one told Trump “Take your daughter to work” was a day, not a four-year-term.

Not quite cricket.

Last I looked, London was at sea-level.    So with 50 runs scored in two games what did MLB do… instead of regular baseballs use painted balls from Wimbledon?

 

There are a lot of baseball terms the British don’t know. After this weekend they will think “bullpens” mean pitchers who are brought in when there hasn’t been enough scoring.

And Joe Buck was announcing Red Sox Yankees game in London.   Sorry England. America wasn’t sending our best.

 

Will Knicks now officially change their name to “chopped liver?

How bad is NBA free agency going for the Knicks? Even the Mets are feeling sympathetic.

 

Washington Redskins fans have long thought in Dan Snyder they have the worst owner in sports. New York Knicks fans watching Jim Dolan “Hold our overpriced beer.”

So for 2019-2020 season who’s going to sponsor the NBA uniform patch that says “Hi, my name is…?”

 

New study finds about 1/5 of US adults “have experienced some form of harm due to someone else’s behavior while drinking.” Not to make light of alcoholism which is a serious problem. But how many adults have avoided harm because someone was able to relax with a glass of wine?. Asking for a lot of women.

Some conservatives last weekend using Ellis Island as an example of the way immigrants SHOULD try to come to US.   Ellis Island  had a 98% percent acceptance rate – yet more proof that education causes Democrats.

Only in San Francisco can the Pride Parade be temporarily blocked by protesters from the left.

 

 

Meanwhile headline for Trump fundraising email today. “We don’t have much time left.”
Well, we can certainly hope anyway.

Donald Trump “didn’t expect” this last minute meeting with Kim Jong Un to take place like a girl with her sights on a prom date “didn’t expect” to run into a boy at school after lurking near his locker for days.
