Men and boys

Astros pitchers are, mostly,  making opposing batters all look like SF Giants hitters at Oracle Park this season.

Gerrit Cole struck out 15 over 7⅔ shutout innings.  But then Roberto Osuna loaded the bases with no out, gave up a run, walked the bases loaded again with one out, and was pulled before Houston finally won, 3-1.  Maybe mean bitch karma has at least mixed feelings about someone suspended 80 games for domestic violence.

Four games into Rutgers’ season QB Art Sitkowski and RB Raheem Blackshear have opted to redshirt, basically meaning this season doesn’t count for them.
You can do that, asked most of the Miami Dolphins?

Who knew “next man up” would end up being Stanford’s quarterback slogan? #Nerdnation

Wildest story of the morning might be Glenlivet coming up with alcoholic tide pods. By comparison this seems strangely sane in the Trump era.

Pretty sure history will be much kinder to Mitt Romney than Donald Trump.

Trump now says he “didn’t want to make the call” to Ukraine’s President ” The only reason I made the call was because Rick (Perry) asked me to.” So is he claiming Perry thought Zelensky should try out for DWTS?

Trump now blaming former Texas Governor and DWTS alum Rick Perry, saying he “didn’t want to make the call” to Ukraine’s President- ” The only reason I made the call was because Rick asked me to.”
Five words. “Damn I miss Molly Ivins.”  (For those who forget, she called him “Governor Goodhair.”)

Susan Collins “I thought the president made a big mistake by asking China to get involved in investigating a political opponent, it’s completely inappropriate.”

So she’s very very troubled?


Trump “War Room” on Twitter attacking Hunter Biden for allegedly being paid $50,000 a month by a Ukranian company.
So they’re saying Hunter has to be a fool to take so little money compared to Don Jr, Eric and Ivanka?
