As Ohio State investigates allegations that Urban Meyer ignored domestic violence does anyone doubt if Buckeyes were a .500 football team last year he’d have already been fired.

 

What’s all this freaking out over Batwoman being a lesbian? Apparently from people who never grew up watching Adam West & Burt Ward on TV? Those tights…

Miss those innocent days when worst we could imagine happening during a election was hanging chads.

is a good day to remind everyone again that Robert Mueller is a Republican, with a Purple Heart, and a Bronze Star.

if Stephen Miller wants to go after immigrants who have taken advantage of government assistance what about the one living with her husband in public housing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

Voting Green Party in US right now is about as practical and smart as putting a nonrefundable deposit down on Mets playoff tickets.

 

Or maybe we’ve got it all wrong and Green Party voters aren’t voting progressive, they’re intending to vote for the color of money

 

Open note to any single liberal young person who votes for Green Party candidate because Democrat isn’t perfect enough, heaven help you if and when you decide to get married.

 

Tonight it’s too close to call in  Ohio special election on whether white voters would reject hate alone. In November, either way it’s a rematch. Let’s see if they reject upcoming factory closures, layoffs and healthcare cuts.

 

Also Doesn’t really matter what final result is in , there’s another election for the same seat in November. And the lesson is simple – VOTE. And for f*ck’s sake, vote for a candidate who can win.

Lara Trump fundraising email for her father-in-law “I find I get along better with the construction workers and the cab drivers…The people who count in the world.” -Donald J. Trump, 1989

As if Trump has been in a cab any more recently than he’s been in a grocery store.

Finally,  a new study found people who sleep more than 10 hours a night 30% more likely to die prematurely than those who sleep for 8 hours. I’m gonna live forever!

The big time?

QB Chazz Surratt was one of 13 UNC Carolina football players suspended up to 4 games this season for selling school-issued, special-edition Nike Jordan shoes.
So are the Tarheels now a big-time football program?

At a rally of more than 200 people at Ohio State supporting Urban Meyer over allegations of him ignoring domestic violence, one speaker was the father of Ezekiel Elliott. Some statements, sadly, don’t even need a punchline.

Ohio State says investigation of coach Urban Meyer’s handling of a domestic violence complaint against former coach will be done in 2 weeks. Well, yeah Buckeyes open against Oregon State in less than 4 weeks. #priorities

Coach Urban Meyer had no problem keeping a murderer on the team, anyone really think he’d draw the line at domestic violence? #aaronhernandez

I hope Rick Gates has a good food taster.

Miss the days when the biggest regular trainwreck on TV involved #TheBachelorette.

On the Daily Show, Trevor Noah joking that Trump isn’t attacking him like he attacks other prominent black men.   Maybe Donald thinks Trevor is just really really tan.

As nasty a gang as MS-13 they are doing less damage in USA now than the gang in the White House.

So Hillary colluded with Russians but Don Jr and I just met with them to get information on an opponent. Got it. The gospel according to Trump

 

I remember the days when it was possible to be both a Republican and a scientist.
Trump’s latest tweet –
“Governor Jerry Brown must allow the Free Flow of the vast amounts of water coming from the North and foolishly being diverted into the Pacific Ocean. Can be used for fires, farming and everything else. Think of California with plenty of Water – Nice! Fast Federal govt. approvals.”

While Trump rants about wasting water, wonder how many millions of gallons it takes to water his golf courses?

Trump has canceled press briefings & will not appear before media while he is on vacation at his golf club in Bedminster.
So again, the man who would run into a school to face a killer with an assault rifle is afraid of journalists with microphones…

 

Newly signed Roberto Osuna got the win tonight in San Francisco for Houston. But you’d think the current World Champions Astros wouldn’t have needed to remake Damn Yankees.

Down and not quite out.

Back to Yankees-Red Sox on Sunday Night Baseball tonight. But don’t worry, for anyone tired of “same old same old” ESPN is showing Cubs (vs. Nats) next week….

 

 

Now that Yankees  have been almost eliminated from AL East maybe ESPN and Fox can find another team to focus on in their place?

On the other hand, the Red Sox Yankees game lasted 4 hours 39 minute minutes and was over 4 hours just for 9 innings. Maybe the whole point of showing the games is maximum number of commercials?

Interesting how as Roberto Osuna returns from a domestic violence suspension, MLB’s other star closer who has served a domestic violence suspension,  Aroldis Chapman, just blew a 3-run lead in the 9th against the Red Sox.   Mean bitch karma weighing in on the matter?

For women fans, this statement from Osuna ought to be reassuring… not

From Astros beat reporter Brian McTaggert.  “When asked if he had a message to fans, especially female fans (via translator): “At this point, we don’t know what’s happened, what’s going to happen and we have to wait for that to play out. To the community, I’m just very happy to be here and support this team.”

Trump finally gets around to praising California’s brave firefighters in a tweet. Oops, never mind, he’s ignoring the firefighters and blaming the fires on California’s environmental laws….. ?

Sen. John Cornyn told Cory Booker to “get a grip” after Booker said he cried “tears of rage” over Trump’s rhetoric. Meanwhile ranting about NBA players at midnight and calling the media “dangerous and sick” is perfectly normal for a President.

Maybe with these people who’d rather be Russian than Democrat we could give Putin one red state and let them move. Any suggestions?

Imagine what the reaction would have been if Democrats had t-shirts saying I’d rather be Kenyan than Republican.

 

Molly Ivins used to say she liked George W. Bush. “But I also like my dry cleaner and I don’t think he should be President.”. How much do I wish Molly were alive and commenting on Trump…

If the Trump Tower meeting was “totally legal,” why didn’t Donald and Don Jr. brag about it and suggest others in GOP do the same?

Won’t you please, please help me…

UMA Health, a New York based online mental health marketplace is giving free, confidential therapy sessions to Mets fans.

The first step is admitting you’re a Mets fan.

Of course, after the last few games against the Red Sox, maybe UMA Health should consider the same option to Yankees fans.

Saturday was the 25th anniversary of Robin Ventura’s charging the mound against Nolan Ryan. For some reason no one has tried that with Madison Bumgarner.

 

Ray Lewis at HOF speech said 1999 through 2001 were “some of the darkest moments of my life.” Not as dark as they ended up for Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar

Houston 14,  Los Angeles 0.    Rough way to start the pre-season for the Chargers against the Texans. Oh, wait, never mind.

Meanwhile Astros reportedly had a pregame meeting to discuss the  arrival of  Robert Osuna, who is almost done with his 75-game MLB suspension for domestic violence.

Here’s a solution to the issue  – just say no.

Reports that Angels manager Mike Scioscia is expected to retire at the end of 2018 season.  Maybe ESPN will discuss it between innings of Sunday Night’s Red Sox-Yankees game?

 

From Trump fundraising email this morning. – “I will work all hours of the night until you get the agenda you voted for.”
Right, attacking black basketball players as well as football players?

Hope Hicks boarded Air Force One today. Meaning tomorrow GOP will probably call for another investigation into Loretta Lynch’s tarmac conversation with Bill Clinton.

Donald Trump introducing Jim Jordan at his Ohio rally Saturday. Wonder if Donald Trump and Jim would be good cellmates?

 

Must have been awful Saturday to be Donald Trump and to know that what ever you tweeted it won’t be as popular as & .

Womp womp.

Seriously I DO miss having a President who loved his wife and loved our country.

Plus ca change….

Johnny Manziel’s first career CFL pass with the Montreal Alouettes was an interception. So Johnny’s auditioning to get back with the Browns?

Manziel threw four first-half interceptions before he was benched.   Canadian fans might be forgiven for thinking “The USA is CLEARLY not sending us their best.”

 

Nike cutting ties with Jameis Winston over his allegedly groping an Uber assault story. Once again, star QB hasn’t gotten it through his head, sometimes motto should be “Just DON’T do it.”

Justin Verlander beats Dodgers again Friday night, the first time the future Hall-of-Fame pitcher has faced LA since the 2017 World Series.

Wonder how much added adrenaline Verlander had in knowing that even if SF Giants come back to make the playoffs, he won’t have to face Pablo Sandoval again.

Urban Meyer now says he “failed” in talking about his knowledge of his coach’s domestic violence issues. “My intention was not to say anything inaccurate or misleading. However, I was not adequately prepared to discuss these sensitive personnel issues with the media, and I apologize for the way I handled those questions.”

Uh, how about,  “I lied, I’m sorry.”

If Urban Meyer has to leave Ohio State over this latest scandal, how long until he runs for office in Ohio as a Republican?

Trump is feuding with the Koch brothers like he’s feuding with Putin.

Thunderstorms this weekend near Trump’s golf resort in Bedminster, NJ. So with that and Manafort trial, the forecast is for an extra-torrential tweetstorm.

So maybe Trump praised Jordan, an avowed Obama supporter, because Donald figured Mike was somehow related to Jim Jordan?

Time to open pool on when Trump first claims Omarosa  was the covfefe girl?

Trump administration now telling ACLU to find deported parents of immigrant children. Sort of the opposite of Pottery Barn – We break it, you buy it.

Steve Bannon reportedly set to campaign this fall saying if Democrats capture control of House in midterms “they’re going to impeach” Trump. Cool, can he start in California?

Down but not out.

Did someone forget to tell SF Giants they were supposed to give up on the season?

15 runs for Boston, and 21 for Los Angeles tonight, 25 for Washington earlier this week. Did someone start the NFL season early and not tell us?

Bummer that Pablo Sandoval tore a hamstring and is out for the season. Especially for all of those who wanted again this season to see him pitch.

So maybe mean bitch Karma didn’t like Sonny Gray being blamed for all the Yankees pitching troubles?

One-on-one golf match between Tiger Woods & Phil Mickelson will happen Thanksgiving weekend. Let’s hope they’re both playing well, could be biggest holiday sports turkey not involving a Lions game.

Too soon to start a pool on when Urban Meyer will retire again for “health reasons?”

=

Ohio State coach allegedly lied about knowing about domestic violence – school puts him on leave. GOP representative allegedly ignored AND lied about sexual assault – party considering making him their leader. That moment when Republicans give FOOTBALL the moral high ground.

So much for Miss Independence “They asked my daughter Ivanka whether or not the media is the enemy of the people. She correctly said no. It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!”

 

Anti-violence march closing down Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive. Says all we need to know about the need for such a march when we see trending & think “mass shooting?”

Trump has a rally and no major media covers it does he still make hateful lying sounds?

According to Trump you need an ID to go grocery shopping. But if you don’t have an ID, buy a gun, then you can probably get all the groceries you want.

What’s Trump’s next rant? Immigrants using fake id’s to buy groceries?

If Dem take back House and Senate this fall, how long will it take for GOP to scream bloody murder if Democrats try to use same tactics Republicans are using now?

Trump is leaving Washington, DC for an 11 day vacation. From what?

James Baldwin quote on his birthday ” I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.”

Here’s Johnny.

Commissioner Rob Manfred says Mike Trout should market himself. And this Friday night ESPN2 will cover… CFL Montreal Alouettes, for Johnny Manziel’s first start. #WTF?

Urban Meyer ignored assault and attempted murder allegations against Aaron Hernandez at Florida, why should anyone be surprised that he ignored domestic violence with a coach at Ohio State?

Ohio State put Urban Mayer on paid administrative leave over allegations that he lied about knowing about assault by one of his coaches.
That moment when a “win-at-all-costs” football program has more integrity than the GOP Congress. #JimJordan

Serena Williams knocked out of first round of Silicon Valley Classic after a 6-1 6-0 defeat. Embarrassing for her, but worse for San Jose promoters trying to sell weekend tickets.

Even fans of the 1962 Mets are beginning to think the 2018 Mets really suck.

On the other hand, at least Mets fans don’t have to watch Sonny Gray pitch.

Bought some groceries this morning without ID. Hope that’s not now a criminal offense!

 

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said White House denounced conspiracy theorists like “QAnon” today. But wait until Trump discovers “QAnon” members almost unanimously support him.

Michigan GOP Rep. Lee Chatfield, speaker pro-temp of the state House of Representatives, apologized after he was caught with an unregistered, loaded gun in his carry-on at a local airport. He said he forgot it was in there.
And women get grief about OUR purses.

It’s bad enough we have to listen to Sarah Sanders. Why does anyone care anymore what Sean Spicer says?

Mueller reportedly wants to ask President Trump about obstruction of justice. Could take a major chunk out of US deficit if questioning is televised on “pay-per-view.”

So screaming “CNN Sucks” and “Enemy of the People” is defended as free speech, but Maxine Waters is attacked as “calling for harassment.”
The Gospel According to Trump….
