Uh, yeah, I know football doesn’t appeal to our better angels in many ways. But to all those who have given me crap about the Saints because of bounty-gate. I give you 49ers announcer Greg Papa this morning on KNBR about Witherspoon’s personal foul on Jared Cook. “Turned out to be a great play for 49ers” because the Saints missed the 2 point conversion and it “knocked Cook out of the game.” Papa added, if Cook stayed in, he thought New Orleans would have won.
Thinking if they’re being honest a whole lot of teams/fans root for injuries.

Russia has been banned from 2020 Olympics over doping scandal.
Will Trump have the US pull out in solidarity?

Enough to make you long for the days when parents just built their kids’ elementary school science projects.

James Comey tweeted “FYI: I offered to go on Fox & Friends to answer all questions. I can’t change their viewers on Donald Trump but hoped to give them some actual facts about the FBI. They booked me for tomorrow at 8 am. They just cancelled. Must have read the report.”

The Democratic establishment is NOT perfect folks, I get it. But if you have any question about the alternative, watch GOP members of Congress in action during these impeachment hearings.
