Not so sure things…

October 8, 2019

Am hearing over and over and over how well-rested the Yankees will be in ALCS. Yeah, that worked out so well in the World Series for the 2012 Tigers.

Rays drew 32,251 fans for yesterday’s win against Astros, their largest home crowd of season. To put that in perspective, 12 MLB teams AVERAGED more than 32,000 for the season.

Among those fans had to wonder if Rays flew in Pablo Sandoval to sit in the dugout as an anti-Verlander lucky charm.

Although in Los Angeles, tickets for NLDS game 5 Wednesday night against the National, which will decide who goes to NLCS, are going on Stubhub as low as $42.  Maybe Dodgers fans don’t want to pay that much to be in the stadium for the 3rd through 6th innings?

Trump talking about “a record sell-out crowd at the Target Center.” Which means he probably won’t outdraw the Minnesota Timberwolves or the Wild.

(or maybe even the NBA Lynx.)

Isn’t refusing to cooperate with an impeachment inquiry itself an impeachable offense?

Trump sent Pelosi a letter about impeachment – “Given that your inquiry lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, or even most elementary due process protections, the Executive Branch cannot be expected to participate in it.”

Uh, the defendant doesn’t get to set rules for the trial.

Barr now says Congress shouldn’t have gotten the information they needed to investigate Watergate. How long until Trump tweets that Nixon also was the victim of a coup?

Right-wing websites are reporting that Trump has activated U.S. Marine reserves to respond to an “emergency within the United States,” -and might be called upon to defend the White House” from a potential “illegal coup” by the “deep state.”
This would be almost funny if it didn’t seem so completely Trumpian.

 

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is demanding Trump pay security costs of $530,000 to use the city-owned Target Center for his rally, or cancel the event.
Trump is not pleased. Well, it’s not as if he’s left cities holding the bag and not paid in the past….
Oh wait, never mind..

Just for the fun of it, there’s a twitter hashtag game tonight #ImpeachASong.  First two efforts  “Tweet Surrender,” and of course Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Criminal.”
