Scoring at home.

May 18, 2022

The Calgary Flames beat their intra-Alberta rival Edmonton Oilers today in game one of their playoff series 9-6.

9-6? Did they somehow schedule the NFL playoffs at Coors Field?

SF Giants lost 5-3 to Rockies, failing to get their 13th straight win against Colorado.

Maybe just as well. The last time the Rockies lost 13 straight to ANYONE was 1993. Which for those who might wish to forget was when the Giants won 103 games and missed the playoffs. Because Colorado lost all 13 games to the Atlanta Braves. ONE win by the Rockies over the Braves would have put the Giants into a one-game playoff to get into the playoffs.

But no, Giants fans are not still bitter.

GOP Establishment is pretty happy about Madison Cawthorn losing his primary. But actually, how is he any worse for the Republican brand than Boebert and Marjorie Three Names.

Oh, that’s right, they didn’t mention cocaine orgies. Never mind.

Six days before GOP Georgia Gubernatorial primary, a Fox News poll has Brian Kemp leading David Perdue by 32 points. So the real question – WWVVB – Who will Velveeta Voldemort Blame?

Velveeta Voldemort now saying on Truth Social that “Dr. Oz should declare victory. It makes it much harder for them to cheat with the ballots that they ‘just happened to find.” Ok, so can New Orleans Saints just declare they won the 2019 NFC conference game AND the Super Bowl?

So apparently this new monkeypox is transmitted through sex. Well, seems like one way to reduce transmission would be to start limiting access to Viagra.

House passed Access to Baby Formula Act 414-9. Bill calls for reducing monopolies on kinds of formula low income families in WIC program can purchase. Opposition? GOP Reps. Biggs, Boebert, Gaetz, Gohmert, Gosar, Marge 3 Names, Higgins, Massie, Roy. Again 4 words – Pro Life My A**

Chuck Grassley rambling on the Senate floor today about preserving the filibuster. Well, maybe Chuck thinks he has standing because he remembers the first filibuster – by the Whigs, back in 1837.

So how is Fox News gonna try to blame Monkeypox on Hunter Biden.

Kathy Barnette said she won’t support Pennsylvania GOP Republican nominee if she loses. So does that mean now Barnette’s gonna support John Fetterman?

When did conservative media get so whiny? Fox bragging about Velveeta Voldemort’s endorsements yesterday admits “Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin handily lost bid to oust incumbent Republican Gov. Brad Little. Tr*mp endorsed Geachin last autumn, but did little to actively support her.”


He who laughs last?

Erik Spoelstra is coaching a Miami Heat team that looks like they might be going to the NBA finals. And Lebron James is sitting home watching. Just like everyone expected 11 years after that first “superteam” season.

Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi became third pitcher in MLB history to allow 5 home runs in one inning Tuesday night.

Shockingly, it wasn’t at Coors Field.

(It was at Fenway Park against the Astros.)

Meanwhile, tonight Brandon Crawford scored on a triple and a throwing error. Or as baseball parents know it “a Little League Inside the Park Home Run.”

SF Giants took a 10-2 lead at against the Rockies today and ended up hanging on to win 10-7 with the tying run at the plate in the 9th

So as they call that at Coors Field -” a laugher..”

So shouldn’t all election deniers be barred from declaring victories in elections?

Although who’s gonna be the first Republican to lose in the primary and claim the election was rigged?

Dr. Oz actually said last night “When you go to bed at night & put your head on that soft pillow, you know Oz will be doing exactly what you want him to do if he you were there next to him.” Uh, children & teens may have seen that on the news. And some are worried about books?

Of course with all Madison’s alleged cocaine orgy stories and now no reason to keep silent since the GOP establishment basically abandoned him and he lost his seat, thinking Cawthorn might want to stay away from windows.

Seeing some say that John Fetterman’s health might be an issue in the November Senate election in Pennsylvania. Fetterman appears to be on the road to a full recovery. But even an invalid would be more effective and useful than many “just say no” GOP members of Congress.

IF Abbott had several US infant formula competitors, as they do in Canada, then closing plant would have helped those competitors & hurt THEIR business. As opposed to now, when Abbott will just resume their dominant position after having hurt Americans. Antitrust matters.

Delta and United somehow just “randomly” increased their fuel surcharge on business class tickets from $1600 to $1700 on the same day. Don’t tell me or any travel agent that monopolies/oligopolies don’t hurt consumers.

Texas GOP rep Dan Crenshaw is anti-choice, pro-gun, refused to wear a mask during worst of pandemic & signed onto the Texas lawsuit that sought to overturn election results in four swing states.

But because he now supports aid to Ukraine he’s too reasonable for Tucker Carlson? It’s. A. Cult.

I’m so old I can remember being shocked that someone clearly so unqualified as George W Bush could be elected Governor and then President.
