I’m back in action today. And yes, the reasons given for my hiatus have possibly been exaggerated. Sometimes we just have too much work to do to get to the fun stuff. This week presented me with a lot of that work. Speaking of work, the 2018 Cincinnati Bengals put some in last night, and beat the Ravens.They’re off to a 2-0 start, which means they might make the playoffs this year…and lose the first game as usual.
On the diamonds, the results were: Colorado over Arizona, New York (NL) beat Miami…twice, Chicago (NL) beat Washington, Boston beat Toronto and lowly Baltimore beat Oakland (and Houston thanks them). And that was all the games that were played. My focus, obviously, is already elsewhere as I prepare to point the wagon toward Dallas and head up to see the Buckeyes take on TCU in Jerry World tomorrow night. The other “big” games include LSU-Auburn, Bama-Ole Miss, Wisconsin-BYU, Oklahoma-ISU, Boise State-Okie State and there might be a few people interested in Texas-USC.
Today’s birthdays include: psychologist Ivan Pavlov, sociopathic racist Margaret Sanger, Star Trek’s Walter Koenig, underrated actor Sam Neill, bassist Barry Cowsill, rocker Morten Harket, errand boy Dmitry Medvedev, and the late, great Amy Winehouse.
Its also the date on which the following events happened: Handel finished his “Messiah” oratorio. Aaron Burr was acquitted. Napoleon occupied Moscow. Francis Scott Key wrote what would later be known as “The Star-Spangled Banner”. The USMC entered “The Halls of Montezuma”. Teddy Roosevelt was sworn in as President after McKinley died. The first ever prefrontal lobotomy was performed. LBJ gave the Medal Of Freedom to Walt Disney (and I would assume he kept all the WH’s jewish staffers away as a courtesy). “60 Minutes” made its debut. So did “The Golden Girls”. And Cal Ripken’s consecutive games streak was broken.
And now on to…the links!
Hurricane Florence is ripping the asshole out of North Carolina. Stay safe if you’re in the area. And let us know if there’s anything we can do. And whatever you do, please done be one of the 67,000 deaths the Dems will soon attribute to the storm.
Dianne Feinstein reaches a new low as a human being. Can’t say I’m surprised. She’s facing a tough re-election challenge…from way to the left of ever her retarded politics. This ought to help in some fund-raising.
Today’s winner of the “Christ, what an asshole” Sweepstakes is one Paul Menchaca. I mean….come on, dude. Pay for your kink like everybody else has to.
Alanis Morrissette, you have a call on the white courtesy phone from San Francisco. Alanis to the white courtesy phone please.
Chicago taxpayers: prepare to be royally fucked. Oh, and you’ll have to bring your own lube. The city ain’t doing this for your pleasure.
The New York Dam primary for governor results are in: And the results are…the people lose. They’d have lost anyway, as the state slips further into the deathtrap of NYC and away from any semblance of a place where self-defense and freedom of association are real things.
And finally, here’s another asshole (politician, of course) to add to the list. Because rules are for little people.
Now go have a good day and a great weekend, friends.
