Fighting off?

December 27, 2019

As a Stanford grad I know we’re supposed to root for Pac 12 at all times. But can’t help smiling watching USC losing by more than three touchdowns to Iowa.

For years, the maximum allowable gift value for players in Bowl Games has been $550 per player, and none of the gifts can be sold. Despite arguments, the NCAA has come against raising that limit.
Meanwhile, for the top bowl games, a decent ticket costs more than $550.

CNN showing their top 10 sports stories of the year. #5 “Blown call costs Saints spot in Super Bowl.”
See, it’s not just New Orleans fans who know. #SaintsWereRobbed #WhoDatNation

Antonio Brown is working out for the Saints. Have to assuming Sean Payton is just f*cking with Roger Goodell.

Washington Capitals. Alex Ovechkin, who just returned from Mar-A-Lago, says despite being voted by fans as All-Star Game Captain he’ll accept a one-game suspension and miss the game to “listen to his body.” So did he miss the message from his body not to go party for a few days and eat junk food with Donald?

Melting down over a movie cameo cut by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 2014? With all due respect I have blueberries in my fridge with thicker skins than Trump.

Story that Trump is looking for a new Secretary of State since Mike Pompeo is expected to run for Senate. Based on today’s news reports have to wonder if Edward Gallagher is now on the list?

Look, it’s pretty simple. If it was a “perfect phone call,” and Trump is innocent, he should want as many witnesses as possible testifying. Period.

Now after midnight on the East Coast on a holiday weekend, I challenge ANYONE with an elderly parent to read @realDonaldTrump late night ranting Twitter feed tonight & tell me if were your parent you wouldn’t be on phone tomorrow to their doctor.

Shut down

December 27, 2019

Thinking back to those days when the Notre Dame-Miami games were considered “Catholics vs Convicts.”

Not sure about the “Convicts” part these days but thinking the Hurricanes being shut out 14-0 in a college bowl game by Louisiana Tech is criminally bad football.

Sixteen days between this year’s college football semifinals, and championship game. Wow. Players have so much time off they might even have to go to class.

And seriously, 16 days…. given American attention spans will anyone remember who’s still playing?

I think 16 days was longer than the James Wiseman era at Duke.

Eastern Michigan QB Mike Glass III was ejected from the Quick Lane bowl for throwing punches at two Pitt players.  Is Glass  trying to get drafted by the Jaguars, or the Browns?

Have to wonder, how many younger people see the movie “Little Women” and think “It would be a great book?”

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Chuck Todd admits several times he has been naive about the Republicans’ commitment to disinformation. And he still has very high-paying jobs. Any more questions about White Male Privilege?

 

 

Donald Trump is upset because he apparently just found out that Canadian Broadcasting  Corporation edited him out of a cameo role in  Home Alone 2, and he’s blaming “Justin T.”

CBC edited that Home Alone 2 cameo out in 2014, if Trudeau could have edited Trump out of anything, wouldn’t Justin have edited him out of video of say, G7 summits?

At this point have to wonder if Justin Trudeau is tempted to put a ban on episodes of “The Apprentice” in Canada just to troll Trump?

Meanwhile, have to think maybe Donald is still just a little miffed about this picture.

Seriously,  Rick Santorum lost his bid for re-election to the Senate in Pennsylvania by 18 points. So why does CNN, or anyone else, care what he thinks?
