Flagged and not flagged.

February 11, 2021

Tom Brady tossed the Lombardi trophy between boats to TE Cameron Brate during the Buccaneers water parade on the Hillsborough river. Good thing, Brate caught it. Otherwise NFL refs would have called a passenger on a nearby boat for pass interference.


Brady was later seen staggering a bit and appearing to be drunk leaving the boat. I dislike Brady but who cares if he gets drunk to celebrate, as long as he’s not driving. I do wish the man would wear a bleeping mask though.

Pitchers and catchers report in a week. How many of us miss the days when the most poignant thing about that statement was not feeling we could afford to go to Spring Training?

Rush Limbaugh has been off the air since Feb 2. My mother wasn’t always right, but think this is a good time for the “if you can’t say anything nice about someone…” So no comment.

Okay, watching “Name That Tune” to mellow out after impeachment trial and no one knows “If You Leave Me” by Chicago. Banging head into wall now….

January 6, insurrectionist on camera with reporter – “We’re listening to the orders of Trump — your boss!” If this were an actual criminal trial this would be when defense attorneys call for a recess to talk about a plea bargain.

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to watch footage of your own attempted murder, members of Congress and their staffs just got that experience today.

Wonder how Mike Pence feels watching the trial today, increasingly knowing that his boss would have had him murdered to stay in power.

Mike Lee is upset? Maybe he should talk to his fellow Utah Senator Mike Romney, who just saw how close he came to being seriously harmed, about being upset.

One thing that still gets me with GOP Senate cult members…. If we’ve learned nothing in 4 years it’s that Velveeta Voldemort eventually turns on all his supporters for not supporting him enough – from Sessions to Pence. They still think it won’t happen to them?

Guessing GOP would say Henry VIII was innocent of murdering two of his wives since he didn’t personally chop off their heads?

Ted Lieu nails it – Donald Trump “ran out of non-violent options to maintain power.”

As GOP whines on social media whines that Democrats “are focusing on removing a President from an office he no longer occupies,” your reminder Republicans made Hillary Clinton testify for 11 hours when she was no longer Secretary of State.

ICYMI because of the impeachment trial, yes, Republicans are attacking Biden’s OMB nominee Neera Tanden for mean tweets. Some statements don’t even need a punchline.

In all seriousness, if you couldn’t watch some of those videos of January 6 today without being terrified, you might not be human.

The audio tapes Stacey Plaskett played in the Senate include the voices of police officers. And those officers, the ones protecting the Capitol, were terrified.

And then in the videos, one officer being beaten with a poll flying an American flag.
