Tyger tyger

Glad Tiger Wood looks like he will be okay. Although have to wonder, will ESPN Masters coverage now be following Woods around Augusta on crutches?

If it’s going to be all Tiger, all the time, a simple PSA:

Police say Tiger’s life was saved by a seat belt. Seat belts work. Masks work too. Wear both of them.

Been a bad week for the Former Guy’s Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients. First Rush, then Tiger.

Anyone checked on Lou Holtz and Mariano Rivera?

Ted Cruz is probably wishing Tiger Woods had his accident last week because it would have knocked his Cancun trip off the front page.

The Washington Football Team will have a new name starting in 2022. A team website indicates they will soliciting opinions etc before and during the upcoming season, and will chose something before the 2022 season.

Translation, we’re going to monetize this as much as we can.

Anyone know if Neera Tanden played high school or college sports? Then she could dismiss those tweets as “locker room banter.”

And I understand there is a strong racial competent to the vitriol against Neera Tanden. But anyone want to tell me her nomination would be in the same jeopardy if she were a man?

Looking at the Senators who have issues with Neera Tanden and now Josh Hawley is upset because General Honore called him “a little piece of s–t with a Yale law degree.” Thinking clearly men are too emotional to be in elected office.

John Cornyn says Biden should withdraw his nomination of Neera Tanden as OMB director & pick someone who has “not promoted wild conspiracy theories and openly bashed people on both sides of the aisle.”

Satire is really having a bad week.

So much information, but Amy Klobuchar sums up the most important point of day one of committee hearing on the Capitol riots in one sentence: “This was a planned insurrection.”

(although as a luddite who is still working on the fine points of Zoom yet, how charming to see Senator Angus King struggle to join the hearing virtual today, and have Klobuchar helpfully point out – “You may be muted.”

Reminder, if Jon Ossoff and Reverend Warnock hadn’t won in Georgia, we couldn’t even be HAVINGs Senate hearings on the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to President Biden “U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years.” Hope no one tells the #FormerGuy – he’ll be upset.

Something to know about Joe Manchin and the minimum wage issue: The typical home value of homes in West Virginia is $113,626.

But I am confused. After the last four years, when did “being qualified” become a GOP requirement for Cabinet members?
