Game one.

October 22, 2019

Didn’t everyone have the pitchers duel between Gerrit Cole and Max Scherzer ending up 6-5?

Whatever happens this World Series, the Nationals were 19-31 in late May. Just throwing that out there for any team thinking of firing their manager if team gets off to a slow start in 2020.

Do we think Trump even knows the Nationals are playing in the World Series?

Washington Nationals did hang on to win Game 1. But their  bullpen gives me flashbacks to SF Giants bullpen in 2016.

And then on a less light note,  it’s now been reported, and corroborated, that Astros assistant GM Brandon Taubman turned to a group of three female reporters, including one who had repeatedly called out Houston’s signing a player who’d been suspended 75 days for domestic violence and yelled, half a dozen times, “Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so f—— glad we got Osuna!”

And instead of the obvious team reaction “obviously this is a disturbing report, we are looking into it, we take domestic violence very seriously,  we have no tolerance for this kind of alleged behavior etc etc.” the team at first called the report “Fake News.”

Two words- Go Nationals.

Michael Jordan said Steph Curry is “Not a Hall of Famer yet.”
So we are beginning to see why Jordan was such a great head of basketball operations for Charlotte.

But hey, no booster better buy a player dinner, because that damages the purity of amateur sports…

Henry Thomas, former child star of ‘E.T.’, was arrested for DUI in Oregon. I suppose it would be inappropriate to make “phone home” jokes.

So Trudeau almost didn’t get re-elected because he stupidly wore blackface costume in his teens and 20s…. And then we wake up to hear 72 year old POTUS tweeting about impeachment – “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching.”

And then this morning when all the headlines were going crazy about Trump’s lynching tweet you have the Fox website leading with “NASA official names date on when space agency intends to put Earthlings on Mars.”

Just guessing – and hoping – Bill Taylor doesn’t have any vacation plans to visit Moscow.

Trump reportedly considering Kellyanne as a replacement for Mick Mulvaney. Well, Thanksgiving at the Conway house might be interesting this year.
