Freaking Liverpool. How’s about making your penalties and putting easy goals away, huh? And I won’t even go into the first goal you gave up. A draw…while everybody else that was supposed to win did so in fine style. Also, Salah is sooooooft. But I suppose it could have been worse. And there are some soccer-haters on here, and I don’t want to lose them in the first paragraph anyway. (As if they read the first couple of paragraphs anyway.) So I’ll move on.
On the American sports front, all we had was baseball yesterday. And the biggest story of the year lives to see another day, as the Indians tied the all-time consecutive win streak at 21. I’ve made it clear that I don’t recognize win streaks that involve ties, so I’m considering this the record. They’ve got the Royals tonight at home to try and get sole possession of the mark. Elsewhere, the Yankees won and the Red Sox lost, bringing the division to within 3 games. The Braves dropped the Nats again. The Phillies win (since someone showed interest in them yesterday, I felt the need to mention them.) The Orioles stopped their slide by beating Team Canada. The Cubs rolled the Mets. The Mariners clung to their playoff hopes by beating the Rangers. The Brewers kept pace with a win while the Cards dropped one to the Big Red Machine. The Dodgers stretched their win streak to 2. The D-backs put down the Rockies to get a little breathing room in the Wild Card chase. The Astros got thumped. And those Twinks just keep giving Minnesodans hope, as they won again and sit in that last AL Wild Card slot.
Hey, I wish there were more sports things going on during the week, but that will start happening tonight. Its September, what do you expect? But most of you didn’t come here for that anyway. You came for…the links!
Oh, Harvard. Continue your fall from grace at this accelerated pace. I’m sure your alumni are just thrilled. (For added lulz, be sure to read the whole article, especially the last paragraph.)
Cook County, IL delays vote on soda (or pop, or soda-pop, or even Coke) tax for a month. That should give them enough time to preen about how they’re doing for the citizens what the citizens are too dumb to do for themselves. Then it can land in court anyway.
“It’s time to abolish the Electoral College”, says person who lost the most recent event involving the Electoral College. Its strange, since she blamed mysoginy, Russians, Comey, the media, racist voter ID laws, aliens, the weather, flooding, and a plague of locusts for that loss. The old drunk can’t even keep her blame game straight. But she can breathe while sticking a finger in her nose one side at a time. So she’s got that going for her.
All that glorious lecturing about global warming during the telethon for the hurricane victims was great, wasn’t it? I mean, those celebs sure must care about the earth and definitely practice what they preach. Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh. About that…
American technology company, Apple, don show with new Smartphone. Meesa thinkin’ issa muy muy nice.
Texas AG sues three companies for price gouging in aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. That was some serious price gouging, but it doesn’t look like the customers were paying attention to what they were paying in two of the three cases until it was too late.
The music has been all over the place this week. I may as well keep it going.
Get out there and have a great day, friends!
