Spoke too soon..

Friday was going to be the first day of MLB season with no games canceled due to COVID-19.

Oops.

“SF Giants game postponed because of a positive test within the Giants organization.” Damn, who’d a thunk we’d ever miss the days of positive PED tests?

Now Memphis, scheduled to open their season Sept 19 against Houston, has stopped practices after a “significant number of individuals” inside the program were placed into quarantine due to COVID-19 protocols.

Danuel House, Jr was sent home for violating NBA quarantine rules. Presume the rest of the Houston Rockets will be following him Saturday night.

With Danuel House Jr. being booted from NBA bubble for having a guest in his room, I get how isolating it must have felt being locked up since late July. But you’ve come THIS far, and you blow it on your team’s last weekend?

Congrats to Boston Celtics on advancing to NBA Eastern Conference finals with a game 7 win over Toronto Raptors. Have to admit, since CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale is a huge Raptors fan I did have an extra rooting interest for his sake. Since Dale’s main job is fact-checking Trump I figured he needed all the fun he could get.

As Trump pretends to be like Churchill here’s another quote from Sir Winston: “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” Joe. Biden. Listens.

Those were the days. In October 2007, then Delaware Senator Joe Biden in a Presidential Debate on Rudy Giuliani “There’s only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun, a verb and 9/11.”

On Monday, bars in Florida will be able to open at 50% capacity. What could possibly go wrong?

Remembering George W. Bush on 9-11…. “All Americans unite in our resolve for justice & peace. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom & all that is good & just…. With Trump in WH he’d be blaming Democrats before the WTC fires were out.

A day after attacking Joe Biden for using a teleprompter, Trump is using a teleprompter at a White House Medal of Honor ceremony.

And at a 9-11 ceremony, a video showed Trump doesn’t know the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, and Melania doesn’t even try to recite it. There are so many more important things to worry about right now, but if Michelle Obama had stayed silent during the pledge GOP would want her deported, or worse.

In case anyone knows MAGAs claiming that Melania doesn’t need to know the Pledge – one part of getting U.S. citizenship is to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. And here are the questions you need to learn. Think Melania, or Donald could answer them? https://uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/questions-and-answers/100q.pdf

I guess we should be glad at least that Trump was so consumed tonight with rage tweeting this Friday night that he forgot to fire anyone.

Trump refused permission to hold rally at Reno Airport so will have it at private Minden-Tahoe Airport. County spokeswoman says adequate social distancing will be in place at event, but adds “no one from Douglas County will be enforcing anything.” What could possibly go wrong?

At Minden Airport in Nevada tonight, local air quality index there tonight was 162 – unhealthy. Wonder how smoke interacts with Adderall. Asking hypothetically.

(End note: Had thought of taking a day off from serious snark for 9-11. But when you wake up to rage tweets from White House…)
