Well Hello Sunday

Birthday for Doug

My buddy Doug had his forty-something birthday event last night. I was glad to be able to attend and spend quite a bit of time with everyone last night. It’s still quite different seeing them as parents. Happy Birthday Doug!

Baseball

Cubs managed to steal one from the Brewers to tie the series at 1-1. Cubs now are leading the division with a one and a half game lead. Not much of a cushion.  Their win came thanks to Jason Heyward in the 11th inning.

Did you happen to see the crazy play with the Boston Red Sox game? Damn. It’s as good as baseball gets.

Glenn Beck on CNN

Usually, I don’t mind listening to him. It seems like he knows how to tone things down when he’s on premium channels but doesn’t mind getting obsurd when people are listening to theblaze (his home network). He makes some valid points below.

Friday Political Madness

Donald on HealthCare

John McCain showed up and cast the deciding vote. $20 million would have been less insured and premiums would have been raised according to the early CBO estimates. It’s also not very often that I’ll say that ‘Donald Trump’ was right….but he was right when he said that Australia has far better insurance than we do.

Boys Scouts CEO Apologizes

Why does everything need to be politically oriented? Why can’t you just show up and talk about the importance of values in the Boy Scouts? Read the full letter from the CEO here.

 

Hey it’s Thursday

DP on Football CTE

I think this should just be more alarming for parents. If your kid is already playing or you’re already a professional athlete – this is nothing new that is going to change your mind. Ninety-nine of one hundred that were tested were found to have CTE. That’s an extremely high rate. My take – our bodies and more specifically our skulls weren’t designed to withstand and take the combined impact speeds and trauma put on mind with the impacts of professional football. What’s the answer? I have no idea. It’s their choice and if they know the risks then let them play.

Kyrie Irving

Have you followed this going on in Cleveland? Kyrie believes that he can lead a team on his own. Kyrie believes he’s a franchise type player but can you do that when you’re in the shadow of someone like Lebron James? Give me a break. Kyrie needs to swallow his ego and do what his role is. Score some points and try and bring a (Another) championship to Cleveland.

Perhaps my favorite comment was about Stephen A Smith though….

Donald Trump bans Transgender Citizens from Serving

Did you forget that you said that Donald? You said you’d be better than Hillary Clinton on how these groups were treated. How’s that happening? My take. They fully have my support to serve. I served in an Infantry Unit with 2nd Battalion 6th Marines and I can tell you that anyone that wants to put themselves in harm’s way. I applaud them. I don’t care if they’re white, black, purple, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, gay, straight, or any other. They’re defending our values and putting their lives on the line for American citizens that they’ve never met. That’s the ultimate price.

Also on a slightly different nope. Why is the White House annoyed that a public disclosure form got released? Are you noticing the word I just used ‘PUBLIC’? Conservative Bill Kristol is spot on.

 

 

Happy Wednesday

First the Funny

Hey Donald. Think about this for a moment. How can Obamacare have wreaked havoc for seventeen years?

Katie Ledecky…

What a swimmer. You follow swimming at all? She’s now the most decorated female swimmer with a dominant swim at the World Championships.

John McCain

I may not always agree with his politics but he’s one hell of a fighter with his brain cancer diagnosis.

Sorry folks. No politics today. Just some golf practice, some photo editing, and the gym later. Have a happy Friday everyone!

One last high moment from yesterday.

Ryan Reynolds granted a wish of a young kid with an inoperable brain tumor a phone call which turned into a Facetime call. Bravo for him doing that.
