Best behavior?

August 5, 2020

Eight UCLA football players tested positive for COVID-19 in early July have now completed quarantine.

Just keep thinking how every year before the very biggest bowls some young men do something stupid and get themselves suspended before the game. So of course no reason to think any of these student-athletes will be reckless in 2020.

SF Giants were ahead 4-2 going into the 7th today at Coors Field So why did it feel when they hung on to win 4-3 that it was a  miracle comeback win?

 

Lebron James after Trump said said he stops watching when athletes kneel “I really don’t think the basketball community are sad about losing his viewership, him viewing the game.” There are times it is very hard to root against King James.

 

Alabama Sen. Candidate and former college football coach  Tommy Tuberville-$600 a week is “way too much. We’re having people just sit out not working because they’re (paid) more sitting around.”

After 5-7 record coaching at Auburn in 2008, school told him to resign & paid Tuberville $5 MILLION not to work in 2009.

At least  EIGHT Democratic fundraising polls today, asking who I think should be VP…. This is beginning to feel like a political version of “The Bachelor”

 

After Louie Gohmert tested positive last week, Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis says he has been wearing a mask & told others in GOP “Don’t be stupid & become the news story of the day.” Now Davis has COVID-19.
So which Republican was stupid and made Davis the story of the day.
Former Deputy Ambassador to the UK Lewis Lukens on Maddow confirms NY Times story about Trump asking British government to move British Open to his Turnberry resort.
Hope Lukens stays away from windows.

After listening to Lewis Lukens tonight on Maddow talk about owner Woody Johnson, Jets  fans have to long for the days when their team was only an embarrassment ON the field.

Andrea Mitchell to Nancy Pelosi “Joe Biden is not going to Milwaukee. How much does this damage the campaign?” Is Andrea trying to become the new Chuck Todd?

The same President who wants to spend $1.75 BILLION to renovate FBI building so his hotel doesn’t face competition, expects us to believe he wants to do his nomination acceptance speech from White House to save money?

If Trump wants to give his nomination acceptance speech somewhere Secret Service is comfortable and experienced guarding him, why doesn’t he give the speech from one of his golf courses?

Serious snark this time.  Watch & listen to Trump carefully at “Covid” briefings. Today he twice referred to “His wife,” in talking about Kanye West, before finally saying “Kim, Kim Kardashian.”
And in talking about Beirut he three times referred to “that country,” NEVER “Lebanon.”
Donald is struggling to remember words.

How life on the East Coast has changed for baseball fans.
They used to go to bed at night and then wake up and first look at the West Coast scores.
Now they wake up and first look to see which other teams might have had players test positive.

Even in a regular year I sometimes think should just forfeit all games at Coors Field against Rockies & save wear and tear on players. So far seeming even more true in a pandemic.

There was a delay  today caused by a drone flying overhead at Target Field. Anyone checked to see if Houston Astros are scheduled to play the Minnesota Twins soon?

Apparently two weeks into filming “The Bachelorette” Clare Crawley informed producers she had fallen in love and wanted to quit the show. How much am I nostalgic for when that would have been the biggest story of the day on social media.

Florida reports fewer than 5,000 coronavirus cases Monday. Uh, Florida testing centers were closed since last Thursday due to the hurricane. Suppressing COVID-19 numbers like they’re votes….

Anderson Cooper on Trump today. “Have you ever heard someone whine as much as this man?’ Anderson has a 3 month old son, he is an expert on crying babies.

Juan Williams on Fox News said there is no difference in absentee ballots and mail in ballots. And he’s being absolutely roasted for it online by MAGAs & other trolls. And we still wonder how some Americans could be stupid as to still support Trump.

There are 53 GOP Senators. And not ONE of them after that AXIOS interview can come forward and say that the Emperor is naked except for a red hat?

Trump saying Tuesday that Florida is so well run is in itself reason for 25th Amendment.

Listening to Trump stumble over words makes me wonder if one reason he still touts hydroxychloroquine is that he learned how to pronounce it.

As Trump claims he will work on evictions can some reporter please find out how many tenants Jared Kushner and other Donald cronies are evicting?

It appears as if Jerry Sheridan by several hundred votes has won the Maricopa County Sheriff GOP Primary.

I know nothing about Sheridan.

But the fact Joe Arpaio made it close?
What’s next, David Duke running in Louisiana on a MAGA ticket.

Person Woman Man Camera TV” isn’t enough to pass a cognitive test. But “It is what it is” is enough to fail a decency test.
