He’s had Better days

August 14, 2019

Apparently SF 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo threw interceptions on five straight pass attempts at practice today. Who does he think he is, an aging Brett Favre?

Lots of talk about Yankees dominating Orioles with 16 straight wins and 17-2 season record. Little mention of 1993, when Braves beat Rockies in all 13 games they played. Had Colorado won ONE game, the Giants, with 103 wins would have at least made it into a one-game playoff for the Division.
But no, I’m not still bitter.

Ah analytics. Apparently Giants’  Tyler Beede as of today was tied with Orioles’ David Hess “for the highest average exit velocity allowed (91.2 mph) among Major League starters with a minimum of 200 balls in play.”
Uh, Beede’s ERA over last 5 games is 8.49. Don’t need analytics to say, he’s getting hit hard.

ESPN talking about how only Dodgers, Yankees and Astros – the “super teams” have a chance to win it all this year.
Reminds me of 2003, when NL had two “super teams,” Braves (101 wins) and SF Giants (100 wins.) The only question was which of them would make the World Series.

(Answer, Florida Marlins.)

Anyone but me had no idea who Todd and Julie Chrisley are, and have no real interest in finding out?

 

Philadelphia shooting suspect is apparently an American citizen who isn’t Muslim. So standby for GOP to give lip service to “mental illness” for about two minutes.

 

Amy Klobuchar tweeting “I’ll say it again: The Senate needs to get back to work. We could pass universal background check legislation that 97% of Americans support. Bring it up for a vote. Now.”
So if McConnell wants to hide in Kentucky, how about Dems calling to see if they can get a Senate quorum and just vote without him? At least some in GOP should be brave enough to vote.

Can anyone imagine what GOP would be saying if Obama stayed on vacation golfing while the stock market tanked?

Steve King “What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?”

And the state that elected King to Congress gets an outsized role in choosing our Presidential nominees?  #NotTheOnion

Trump finally tweeting about Hong Kong “I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?”
Personal meeting, why? Does Trump want to mint more beautiful commemorative coins?

Put a bloody sock in it?

Curt Schilling, whose failed video game company bankrupted him and cost Vermont taxpayers almost $30 million, may run for Congress in Arizona. And Trump thinks it’s “terrific.”
Well of course Donald does. Grifters of a feather.

Actually, considering Curt Schilling’s record with a failed huge business fail costing taxpayers almost $30 million, why hasn’t Trump offered him a Cabinet position?

Tiger Woods, dealing with an oblique strain, says he’ll “give it a go” for this weekend’s BMW Championship.
Guess he’s decided the strain can’t get worse with just two days of golf.

SF 49ers assistant coach Katie Sowers now says she was told in 2017 by one unnamed NFL executive during an interview that his team wasn’t ready to hire a female coach.
For comparison, the Spurs hired Becky Hammon in 2014.

MLS Atlanta United manager Frank de Boer says he does not believe in equal pay for men and women in football, or sports such as tennis, because women don’t bring in as much revenue.
All together now, the Atlanta who?

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says Democrats are living in a “fantasy world” when it comes to their climate change rhetoric. So Perry is now an expert on fantasy worlds because of his stint on “Dancing with the Stars?

Trump on windmills in speech on energy: “All of a sudden it stops, the wind and the televisions go off, and your wives and husbands say, ‘Darling, I want to watch Donald Trump on television tonight, but the wind stopped blowing.”

No wonder Alec Baldwin wanted to stop playing Trump on SNL. The satire can’t keep up with reality.

I’m confused, not a Godfather fan, but I guess Fredo is supposed to be the stupid brother. So is it Don Jr or Eric?

Now NY Times reports both of Epstein’s guards on the night he died fell asleep, slept through their required checks AND falsified records.  So how long until they get offered jobs at Mar-A-Lago?

Lost in Epstein craziness is fact that everyone concedes guards, one a substitute, were working crazy amounts of overtime. This due to Trump hiring freeze. So instead of prison being staffed properly taxpayers probably paying MORE $$$ in overtime than in salaries. #Winning

Finally, what a f*ckwad. Ken Cuccinelli “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.”
You know who wasn’t a public charge? Those immigrant workers rounded up by ICE in Mississippi.
You know who will become a public charge? Their US citizen CHILDREN
