Deja vu all over again.

August 16, 2020
SF Giants reporters on Friday had to dig back to 1929 for the last time Giants lost after blowing a five run lead in the 9th inning.
At least they didn’t have to dig far Saturday night to find when SF last lost a three run lead in the 9th inning.

 

If analytics were the most important part of baseball then Astros wouldn’t have needed to cheat to win.

St. Louis Cardinals President pins the team’s COVID-19 outbreak on close quarters and eating together.    Well it’s a good thing there aren’t any overcrowded classrooms and students don’t eat lunch at schools….

Oh please. Now Kevin McCarthy is accusing Oakland born Kamala Harris of being from San Francisco. And McCarthy is from California. Which means he’s probably seen a few Giants-As or 49ers-Raiders games and knows how much SF and Oakland people love being equated with each other.

Just thinking for most of us if we called our brother “our best friend” we’d be at their bedside when they died, not on the golf course or gratuitously attacking a political opponent.

 

Expecting that Joe Biden will  express more human sympathy over the death of Robert Trump than Robert’s brother ever will.

So did Robert Trump die of COVID-19? And if so would they tell us

Well, at least he didn’t say “I like brothers who don’t die.”

Is there anyone’s death who would cause Donald Trump to cancel his golf game?

If Biden weren’t accepting his nomination at close to 11pm Thursday night, Trump would try to schedule his brother’s funeral to coincide Come to think of it, I bet Donald thought about it.

Did not know this but a twitter friend told me former Ohio Governor John Kasich’s dad was a MAIL CARRIER. So yeah, surely Kasich can find time to defend USPS in his Monday night DNC convention speech.

Trump plans to give a speech in Biden’s home town just before Joe Biden makes his acceptance speech at the Democratic convention. Just before Trump gives his acceptance speech, Biden campaign should simply replay the Axios interview. And perhaps “Person, woman, man, camera, TV.”

Don’t forget Donald Trump is a master of distraction. The USPS  is returning the mail boxes. They aren’t returning the mail sorters.

 

Trump says USPS can’t handle an election done largely by mail. Number of Americans who voted TOTAL in 2016 election: About 138 million. Number of paper Christmas cards sent in the US each year – About 2 BILLION!

Pass it on.
