The end of the week is all but upon us. That’s when I usually get excited, but I can’t get pumped up for the Army-Navy game. I already miss college football. But the bowl games are a mere week and change away, so I’ll manage somehow. Like the UCL final 16 being set. I look forward to the draw Monday morning. And I bet Liverpool end up against a Spanish side from Madrid. You heard it here first.
The US got off to a rocky start at the Presidents Cup matches in Melbourne. And Scott Boras got a lot wealthier as Anthony Rendon signed with Anaheim. This was hilarious. (Illinois beat Michigan in the game as well.) And your NHL winners were Washington, Montreal , and Colorado.
First Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Jay was born this day. So were savior to train-hopping hobos Matthias Hohner, painter Edvard Munch, actor Edward G Robinson, “Old Blue Eyes” Frank Sinatra, flying ace Arthur Hawkins, pet-neutering activist Bob Barker, NY mayor Ed Koch, guitarist Dickey Betts, punk pioneer Rob Tyner, drummer Clive Bunker, racing legend Emerson Fittipaldi, singer/drummer Sheila E, MMA legend Royce Gracie, and triplet Playboy models Nicole, Erica and Jaclyn Dahm.
That was a music-heavy list…of heavyweights, in my opinion. Anyway, on to…the links!
I guess this is why Jim Comey’s twitter account was silent yesterday. But don’t worry, he’ll be back to his blathering as soon as someone not under oath says he wasn’t completely incompetent in his duties.
Biden’s campaign continues to be run about as well as his son’s life. Maybe a little cocaine would pep it up. And a trip to a strip club or two.
Speaking that son, he has until Friday to give his income information for the last five years to a judge in his child support case. I assume since its family court, the records will be sealed. And that means they won’t get leaked to the public for a couple days.
Chicago Police Department continues its unblemished track record of being a shitshow. Just read for yourself. They can’t decide how to even promote people without causing grief.
Donald Trump: Diplomat. I find it hilarious that we have somebody in office causing gasps of the professional political class by…talking like a normal person would in a similar interaction. And I suspect that’s part of why he’s so despised by that “class” of people and those who believe we have “top men” who should run the world.
Meanwhile, the British version of Trump keeps doing what he does, and the media goes bonkers. Too bad for Labour their party is in complete disarray and their officials spout anti-semitic garbage all the time. Otherwise they could defeat this buffoonish guy with fantastic hair.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Makes me happy for our system of government and elections where we hold a vote and everybody grudgingly accepts the results and moves on with their lives. Well, not anymore, but at least we only have to get flooded with election propaganda on a set schedule.
Tomorrow might be tough to find a song for. Until I hit that wall, go ahead and enjoy this gem.
Now get out there and make it a great day, friends!
