Blow ups

January 3, 2020

On a lighter note ESPN breaking news says the Cowboys have parted ways with coach Jason Garrett.
Wouldn’t it be bigger news if Jerry Jones kept him?

 

Redskins owner Dan Snyder introduced new coach Ron Rivera as, “someone that can bring a winning culture to our organization.”

“A winning culture?!  In Washington under Snyder?  Is Rivera showing up with blue ribbon yogurt?

Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán suspended 81 games for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy. So will NY trade him to a contender after the All-Star Break and then resign him in 2021?

He wasn’t my candidate, but saw Julian Castro trending and learned he’d dropped out of race and felt a bit wistful.  Saw Marianne Williamson trending and learned she HADN’T dropped out of race and felt more than a bit sad.

A few hours ago top US political news was “Newly redacted emails showed Administration officials said the freeze on Ukraine’s military aid was done under “clear direction” from Donald Trump. I’m sure the timing of tonight’s killing of an Iranian general was just a coincidence.
