Go fourth

July 4, 2021

I’d like Montreal Canadiens to win this Stanley Cup. (I know, very unlikely down 3-0)

But as a woman, who has frequently been dismissed with with “women don’t get sports” – this is one of the more cringe-worthy comments I have heard. Tampa mayor Jane Castor actually said it “”What we would like is for the Lightning to take it a little bit easy, to give the Canadiens just the smallest break, allow them to win one at home, and then bring it back to the Amalie Arena for the final and the winning of the Stanley Cup,”

Our Vice President gets a lot of racist and misogynistic criticism.However, as SF Chronicle points out “Harris was busted once wearing a Dodgers cap, though her spokeswoman was quick to defuse the controversy by confirming, “She’s a Giants fan. She had to borrow a hat today because she didn’t bring one.” But does a Giants fan ever wear a Dodgers cap?”

How many baseball fans of teams potentially in the hunt for NL Wild Card are rooting for the Mets to win the NL East? Because NO ONE wants their season to come down to a potential one-game playoff with Jacob DeGrom.

Beach Boys doing “God only knows” for “The Fourth in America” reminds me again how good the “Love Actually” soundtrack is.

Aroldis Chapman with 4.71 ERA in 32 games is an All-Star.

Tyler Rogers, with 1.38 ERA in 39 innings is not And that’s before he got a save tonight. Player ballots have something to do with it, maybe MLB hitters can’t stand the fact a soft-tossing submarine righty gets them out?

Foreigner, a popular band in my high school, tonight on CNN’s “The Fourth in America” doing “Feels like the First Time.” Not saying these guys are old. But it might be “Feels like the First Time” because they can’t remember any of the others.

Isn’t “Defund NPR” cancel culture?

Wonder again how much overlap there is between the anti-abortion crowd and the anti-vaxxers screaming “my body my choice?

Something to be thankful for on July 4. The Former Guy no longer had the power today to demand fireworks be set off in a place at serious risk of wildfires.

Have to wonder, are many in GOP secretly trying to discourage Americans from getting their COVID vaccine, because they don’t want to give President Biden the “win” of 70% vaccinated?

As even bribes and lotteries don’t work to get people willing to get their COVID vaccines with some Republicans…. Wonder if we could get the narrative out that liberals don’t want conservatives to get vaccinated because we are trying to reduce their numbers?

Moving on up?

As we are at basically halfway point of the MLB season, didn’t we all have the SF Giants with the best record in baseball on July 4?

“Siri, are unwanted bobbleheads recyclable?”

Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul says extra rest before NBA Finals has helped ailing right hand. And presumably given him time to figure how any medical bills could be paid by Medicare?

Do I care who wins in the Bezos, Branson, Musk space race, no. Do I care how much in tax breaks the Former Guy gave them all, yes.

9 states have fully vaccinated more than 1/2 residents: Calif, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Mass., Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, NY, Oregon, Penn, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington plus DC. Wonder what these states have in common?

Ron DeSantis’s press secretary denied reports Gov. asked Velveeta Voldemort to cancel Florida rally while over 100 still missing at Surfside. “There was never, at any time, a ‘plea’ from Gov. DeSantis to cancel or postpone the rally.” Translation Ron is still afraid of Donald

The Former Guy at his vanity rally in Sarasota Florida “You didn’t pay tax on the company car or a company apartment. You didn’t pay tax. Or education for your grandchildren. I don’t even know. Do you have to? Does anybody know answer to that stuff?” Uh, yes, IRS, Manhattan DA & NY AG know the answer. For starters.

And to be honest, I didn’t watch the rally, and I had no idea what Velveeta Voldemort would say at his vanity rally in Florida tonight. And I don’t really care. But one thing I’d bet he wouldn;t say “I’ve been vaccinated and you all should go get your shots as soon as possible too.”-

Apparently the Former Guy claimed at his vanity rally tonight in Florida to be soliciting donations for the Surfside victims. Does anyone think the victims will actually get that money?

Will no doubt post this again, but as we approach 2022 elections, this quote – “This demand for purity, this looking down your nose at people who want to compromise, is a recipe for disaster for the Democrats.”

Claire McCaskill, often criticized by left of party, after losing Senate seat in 2018 to Josh Hawley.

Happy Fourth of July. And whatever our worries today as Americans, at least we’re not worried that our President might be starting a major wildfire at Mount Rushmore just for a vanity fireworks show.
