Against all odds?

July 9, 2021

Wonder what kind of odds you could have gotten on the Padres with Max Scherzer on the mound for the Washington Nationals and an 8-0 lead into the bottom of the 4th against San Diego?

We’re all hearing about Daniel Camarena & his grand slam off Max Scherzer tonight. But SFGiants fans know, Camarena’s still no Caveman. 1st grand slam by MLB reliever since Pirates’ Don Robinson on Sep. 12, 1985. 2 years before Robinson traded to Giants. #ForeverGiant

The Astros’ Jose Altuve & Carlos Correa said they have decided to sit out the 2021 MLB All-Star game. Wonder if somebody gave them a sign?

While I prefer Becky Hammon to succeed Gregg Popovich someday as coach of San Antonio Spurs, still irritating to see yet another team, now Orlando Magic, likely to hire another finalist, in this case Jamahl Mosley, as their head coach instead of her. #GoSpursGo

July 7 was anniversary of 1865 execution, by hanging, of 4 conspirators in assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Not that anyone will be executed for January 6. But that no member of Congress (or VP) was assassinated, certainly wasn’t for lack of some of insurrectionists trying – for starters to hang the Vice President.

Shouldn’t Tomi Lahren be put on a no-fly list for calling flight attendants trying to enforce mask mandates “nazis of the air?”

Mitch McConnell says he doesn’t want to stop ‘everything’ Biden proposes, just the ‘worst’ Translation, Moscow Mitch wants to stop EVERYTHING President Biden proposes.

I guess it’s sadly not surprising that the same people who don’t believe in evolution don’t believe that viruses mutate.

Mitch. McConnell: “I’m perplexed by the reluctance of some to get vaccinated, totally perplexed.”

Also Mitch McConnell – “I’m going to keep genuflecting before the Former Guy who is still downplaying COVID and the need for vaccines.”

If we were all vaccinated, not wearing a mask in public makes sense: But I don’t have a good feeling about the Venn Diagram overlap between those who believe the Big Lie about the 2020 election & those who will lie about being vaccinated to avoid wearing a mask.

Definition of evil: When you’re smart enough to know virus is deadly, but hide it from everyone, then hide being seriously ill AND downplay your own vaccination, even though you know many of your disciples will die if they don’t get vaccine themselves. #VelveetaVoldemort
