If you’re a star…

August 1, 2022

Six game suspension for Deshaun Watson after thirty women accused him of sexual misconduct.

So it would have taken 100 women to come forward to get him suspended for the season

DeShaun Watson suspended 6 games w/o pay, but his contract with Cleveland was heavily backloaded, with $690,000 this year, $46 million each of next 4 years. And new Browns QB is not being fined. Not like DeShaun did anything egregious like wearing wrong color socks. #sarcasm.

Arizona QB Kyler Murray has COVID-19 and will have to stay home and miss practice until he tests negative. So since Murray has nothing else to do, is it too late for the Cardinals to temporary reinstate that contract homework clause?

So as Rachel Maddow reports, Blake Masters, Arizona GOP primary Senate candidate, claims January 6 was a FBI false flag. while Mark Finchem, running in GOP primary for AZ Secretary of State, actually was part of the insurrection. This is so confusing.


So if a golf ball lands on Ivana’s grave at Bedminster is that considered a hazard or is it in play?


So John Cornyn has COVID. The first GOP Senator other than Murkowski to get the virus in months, or the first to admit it?

So all these election deniers running in GOP primaries: For consistency if they win shouldn’t they turn down their own victories as fraudulent?

As Velveeta Voldemort either accidentally or on purpose endorsed both “Eric”s in the GOP Missouri Senate primary, maybe he’s using something he learned with his wives and mistresses “Let me call you sweetheart, I can’t remember your name.”

It still boggles my mind how many in the media professed outrage over President Biden’s fist bumb with the Saudi Prince, yet were crickets about Velveeta Voldemort hosting AND profiting off of the Saudi-backed LIV tournament less than an hour from Ground Zero.

Pretty sure Susan Sarandon had more policy agreements with Hillary Clinton than Kevin Costner has with Liz Cheney. But as Amy Klobuchar says “Courage is standing next to someone you don’t always agree with for the betterment of the country.”

And here’s the proof.

Well played Kevin Costner. At least one star of Bull Durham understands that politics can be messy, but that democracy matters.

The Thrill is NOT gone…

“I am Will the Thrill Clark. I am part of San Francisco. And I am Forever a Giant.”

(Not perha

As much as I have complained about Tiger Woods being the center of newspaper ESPN headlnes for every golf tournament he now plays in, must confess any ink or media space given to Tiger seems so quaint compared to anythng given to the Saudi LIV golf tournaments.

I know one’s a pitcher and the other was a hitter. And I know he may be gone at the trade deadline. But there are moments that Carlos Rodon gives me Will Clark vibes.

NFL to rule Monday on DeShaun Watson case. New Browns’ QB agreed to settle 3 of 4 remaining active civil lawsuits against him, after settling 20 others in June. 25 women accused Watson of sexual assault. Why do I expect NFL decision to be “If you’re a star they let you do it?”

Someone at a store in Des Plaines near O’Hare bought a ticket that won the $1.2 billion Mega Millions jackpot. One of first potential things winner might do with the money? Buy a private plane so they never have to deal with O’Hare again.

Canada’s Supreme Court ruled man can be charged w/ sexual assault for not wearing condom w/out partner’s consent during sex. GOP claims to be anti-abortion, so why isn’t some Republican co-sponsoring law like this in US? “Stealthing” surely causes a lot of unplanned pregnancies.

Joe Biden tests positive for COVID, tells public, isolates until negative, then isolates again when he gets Paxlovid rebound. Velveeta Voldemort tests positive, hides it, interacts w/ people including superspreader Rose Garden event until he is hospitalized. See the difference?

Democrats’ bill just has a 15% minimum corporate tax for companies reporting more than $1 BILLION in profits annually. Thinking like most of my friends, I don’t make close to a billion, and I pay a lot more than 15% in tax.

Joe Manchin wass booked on FIVE Sunday talk shows. But really, has ANY Senator since President Biden’s inaugural been interviewed as often? Can’t imagine how media attention might have gone to his head.


In case you missed it, not only has GOP delayed healthcare for Veterans over being mad at Democrats agreeing on a Climate/Prescription Drug bill… but also some of them are planning to punish even their friends & relatives in same-sex marriages for the same reason.

If John McCain were alive I don’t think he’d have let other Republicans vote against healthcare for veterans harmed by toxic burn pits. I know people can disagree on issues. But seriously, where is the GOP Senator now w/ enough of a moral compass to sometimes say “This is WRONG?”

So we all know Velveeta Voldemort is a vindictive money-grubbing man. But if you ever thought his 3 chlldren by Ivana were any better than he is -they agreed to put their mom in that ugly spot by first tee. (Ivana had mostly NY friends too, with it being a private club, AND the fact it’s 50 miles from Manhattan, won’t even be simple for them to visit her grave.)
