Changing the pocket

November 23, 2022

Aaron Rodgers today confirmed his right thumb is broken. On a positive note, his medical costs should be covered by Medicare.

Meanwhile Bears QB Justin Fields may be unable to play Sunday due to injury, and Zach Wilson has been benched for the Jets.

So Chicago Bears vs NY Jets likely to be QB Trevor Siemian vs Mike White. Just like we all anticipated/

Thoughts on Aaron Judge..

Yes, the Yankees are a legendary team.

Yes, the Dodgers have an All-Star team

Yes, the SF Giants would be HIS team. Have to think that last one matters.

Houston Astros gave players each $516,347 playoff share. Wonder if they gave a token amount to Josh Fields. The former pitcher the Los Angeles Dodgers traded Yordan Alvarez to the Astros to get.

How do you not love newly re-elected Alaska Democrat Congresswoman Mary Peltola’s Twitter bio? – it starts out “Fish, Family, Freedom.

And Peltola is not just the first Democrat elected to Congress from Alaska in 50 years…. she kept Sarah Palin out of Washington, DC.

As many of us travel for the holidays, a good rule of thumb…. it’s not a great idea to vote for a candidate you wouldn’t trust to pet-sit your cat or dog.

Except that we won’t get regular guest appearances by Tina Fey on SNL, Mary Peltola’s win in Alaska is truly great news for America – and democracy.

DOJ wants to question Mike Pence in the January 6 investigation into Velveeta Voldemort. Well, presume Mother will agree as long as a woman prosecutor isn’t involved.

Fox News complaining this am about $40 billion cost of President Biden’s pausing student loan repayments. Funny, haven’t seen Fox complain lately about the $1.9 trillion cost of Velveeta Voldemort’s tax cuts for corporations and wealthy Americans.


Too high a cost

Just got online ad “Cardinal vs. BYU – Tickets Starting Under $10!” Stanford football team is 3-8 and the game will start after 8p on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I think they’re gonna need to pay more.

Example number 23305 or so why I’m Spurs fan.

Coach Gregg Popovich, asked on San Antonio struggles as a team. “Really tough life. Can’t pay my electric bill, players can’t pay their bills, gas is too expensive for them. …C’mon, give me a break. NBA is greatest job in the world, so if you complain, you’re an idiot

In this week’s College Football Playoff Rankings, Georgia is #1, Ohio State #2, Michigan #3 and TCU #4

Two loss LSU is #5. One loss USC is #6. Two loss Alabama is #7.

So when LSU probably loses to Georgia in the SEC Championship and one of Michigan and Ohio State loses to the other, what’s going to be the CFP committee’s rationale to move Alabama up to #4.

I’m so old I remember “I don’t mind releasing my tax return.. I’m under a routine audit, and it’ll be released.” Presidential Candidate Velveeta Voldemort.

Has Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin offered useless thoughts and meaningless prayers for tonight’s mass shooting in Chesapeake yet?

California Rep. GOP David Valadao won re-election. While he’s anti-choice, Valadao is one of few House Republican semi-moderates . He is pro-immigration reform & voted to impeach Velveeta Voldemort in 2021,

Now, I’d have greatly preferred Democrat Rudy Salas. But Valadao is one of the cats McCarthy will have to herd.

At time of writing, out of over 2.5 million votes cast in Arizona for Attorney General. 1,524,612 to 1,524,102, Democrat Kris Mayes leads Republican Abraham Hamadeh, 1,524,612 to 1,524,102  –  510 votes.


Don’t let anyone tell you that your vote, or your GOTV efforts, don’t matter.

GOP is actually asking the Georgia Supreme Court to stop Saturday voting for the Senate Runoff.

They claim it overly benefits Democrats.

Reverend Warnock was right. “Some people don’t want some people to vote.”
