Axed

November 23, 2019

Well, to be fair Stanford should let Cal borrow the Axe once a decade. #BigGame

 

Pac 12 plays 1 more conference game than SEC & tends to avoid the real “little sisters of the poor” games. Today Oregon goes down by 3 to ASU in Tempe while Alabama wins by 63 at home against Western Carolina.
But yeah, get out violins if there aren’t 2 SEC teams in playoffs.

The NFL has issued 33 players a total of $732,422 in fines from the brawl at end of Steelers and Browns game. $732,422?!! That might be more than more than Cleveland gate receipts.

Meanwhile cure for the longest losing streak of Gregg Popovich’s time in San Antonio?  Play the Knicks.

Andrew Yang and his supporters are so upset over lack of coverage that they want to Boycott. MSNBC, Uh, maybe besides Yang spouting his own programs & theories Andrew could spend a little time actually supporting other Democrats running for local & state offices?

Reports that both secretary of the Navy and the admiral who leads the SEALs have threatened to resign or be fired if POTUS stops the expulsion of a commando from the elite unit convicted in a war crimes case.

If so, how long until Trump refers to the entire military leadership as “Never Trumpers?”

 

Now it’s Pompeo. Is there anyone in the Trump administration who isn’t dirty?

 

Not a problem I will have, but sharing this idea from my Twitter friend Tony Posnanski
“I will be changing my wifi password to “IMPEACH45” this Thursday so that my MAGA family members have to put that in their devices to have some of my delicious WiFi.”
Don Jr. is fundraising for his dad “Contribute $50 or more TODAY to claim your HAND-SIGNED copy of my new book TRIGGERED.”
If you donate more do you get to choose the color crayon?
It’s Saturday night, which means once again, Americans sadly playing the game “Is this the nightly news covering Trump or the SNL cold open?
Some part of me wonders if Trump pardoning all these war criminals isn’t just a pathetic way to continue trying to get back at Senator John McCain?

Circling dates on the calendar.

November 23, 2019

What a difference a year makes. In 2019 NBA teams were thrilled to see Warriors because it would increase ticket sales, this year they’re glad to see Golden State because it increases the chances of a win.

Lots of big rivalry games Saturday –   Cal vs. Stanford,  USC vs UCLA.  And some interesting match-ups with Ohio State vs Penn State,  and Baylor vs. Texas.  Even Boston College vs ND.  Meanwhile, Alabama, whose fans complain they should be in CFB playoff even with a loss, proves their strength of schedule by playing… Western Carolina?!!

Good news for Bears fans. QB Mitchell Trubisky, injured in Rams game Sunday night, has recovered enough to start against Giants Sunday. Bad news for Bears fans. QB Mitchell Trubisky, injured in Rams game Sunday night, has recovered enough to start against Giants Sunday.

 

Now Mike Bloomberg bought $31 million in ads, Tom Steyer
spent over $47 million in 1st 3 months of his campaign. That $$$ could flip Senate, or enough local races to make major dent in GOP gerrymandering.
Miss the old days when men bought Playboy to take care of fantasies

 

So as Sandusky was re-sentenced today (simply a technicality)  have to wonder, if he were a long-time Trump supporter, would Donald claim he didn’t know Jerry? Or that the accusations were “fake news?”

Wait, the same President who can’t find time to appear before the House Intelligence Committee can spend 53 minutes in a live interview ranting on Fox and Friends?

Right, the normal response to being accused of talking so loudly on a cellphone that everyone around can hear you is to have a phone in interview to Fox and Friends where you scream for almost an hour.

Per CNN “A lawyer for an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani says his client is willing to tell Congress about meetings (Devin Nunes) the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee had in Vienna last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on Joe Biden.”
At some point have to wonder how the buses run in DC with all these crooks throwing each other under them.

 

So will Devin  Nunes testify in his OWN defense? Or will he be too cowed?

 

An increasing number of Republicans say Trump has abused his Presidential powers but shouldn’t be impeached, in essence saying his crimes don’t matter. So is this how they raise their children?
