  • Sunday Sports Spectacular! T’was the Week Before Christmas Edition

    Filed under Uncategorized at December 17th, 2017 - 12:45 pm

    This is a rushed and hurried column for me, as Friday was our annual Christmas Party.  Since I normally put this puppy to bed Friday evening before leaving the office, imagine my shock, dismay and horror when I woke up this morning and remembered Friday was a mess of red wine and prime rib.  Both of which were slightly on the cheap end, if you ask me.

    So t’was the week before Christmas and everyone who has stopped watching the NFL can now experience first-hand the delights of mall shopping on the weekend before Christmas.  I get there when it opens and dash out before everyone gets out of church.  Thank you, Catholic Church for authorizing Saturday Mass all those many decades ago.

    There was never a greater indication of my divorce from football as yesterday.  Normally I can’t wait for the NFL Saturday schedule to start.   This year, the only reason I know two games were played yesterday was because they were advertised on a DVR’d episode of “Bull” that I didn’t get a chance to watch until this morning.  Heh.

    But keep paying those millions to Goodell, you idiot owners.

    Today’s Games
    Dolphins @ Bills
    Packers @ Panthers
    Ravens @ Browns
    Texans @ Jaguars
    Bengals @ Vikings
    Jets @ Saints
    Eagles @ Giants
    Cardinals @ Redskins
    Rams @ Seahawks
    Patriots @ Steelers
    Titans @ 40-Whiners
    Cowboys @ Raiders

    Monday’s Game
    Falcons @ Bucanneers

    In the NHL,

    Blues @ Jets
    Wild @ Blackhawks
    Flames @ Canucks
    Panthers @ Golden Knights (this is FLORIDA v VEGAS….okay, still having a problem with this)

    As always, this is your Sunday Open Thread.  Have some fun.  Personally, I plan to make a big batch of hot-buttered rum and not planning to share.  I will of course make an exception if anyone from this blog shows up at my front door.  And we are a fruitcake-free zone here if that’s an incentive….

      so, according to the financial press and some nevertrumpers, america firt policies will destroy the economy, the tax cut is bad for the economy and will cost the gop the majority in the house and senate, the booming economy is an illusion, the stock market is a bubble, nor one word about 4% growth this quarter, and bloomberg is obsessing about the price of a trump christmas ornament.

      well, here is what i see: my retirement portfolio makes me smile bigly every week when i review my holdings, there are help wanted signs everywhere, the railroad up river from my house is busier than ive ever seen it, there are coal barges waiting to unload at the terminal across the river (this has never happened), the trades are advertising on the radio for apprentices (iron workers, electricians, carpenters, steamfitters, welders and operating engineers), three big companies up north are advertising for help so they can put on a new shift and open more production lines…

      who do i believe, the so called CONservatives, the socialist press, or my own eyes.

      Classic media bias by omission. Remember Charlie Gard, the British baby born with a mitochondrial defect?

      VP Pence invited his parents to the U.S. and hosted them at the WH on Friday.

      MOSCOW (AP) – The Kremlin says Russian President Vladimir Putin called Donald Trump to thank him for a CIA tip that thwarted bombings.

      the WH has confirmed the call and will be issuing transcript shortly

      @ doriangrey:

      amphetamines worked for the germans in ww2, at the start. it worked because the soldiers were very well trained, highly motivated, and not cowards at heart. however, prolonged use caused addiction and very erratic behavior which is not an asset on the battlefield. speed can be used but it has to be very limited and under very controlled circumstances.

      loads of speed over time will expose weaknesses in the psyche pretty quick. untrained and cowardly muzzies hopped up on meth make great targets. the iraqi army ran away form isis when isis showed up tweaked to the hilt. the russians and us made pretty quick work of daesh for exactly the same reason. they are cowards at heart and have to rely on a chemical to even be on the battlefield.

      chemical bravery is fake and dangerous and it will get you killed fast. i dare say that if isis were culturally brave and well trained that there might still be an ‘islamic state’ in the region today as it would have been far far harder to eradicate them. they won a short game with a chemical, now…just about all gone.

      part of this comment didnt show…

      anyway, captagon is a stimulant as well, it isnt very strong though, as i recall, a bunch of captagon pills were captured and analyzed, it turns out that there wasnt any captagon in them, it was all meth and other stronger stimulants.

      so isis et al are tweakers.

      How The Media Reports On Trump

      Two boys were tossing a ball in a vacant lot when one of them was attacked by a Rottweiler. The other boy, thinking quickly, grabbed a sturdy stick, wedged it under the dog’s collar and twisted mightily breaking the animal’s neck and freeing his buddy.
      A reporter from the New York Times was cruising by and witnessed the scene. Thinking it would make a great human interest story, he began to interview the boys, focusing on the quick-thinking rescuer. Whipping out his laptop he entered the heading: “Brave Young Yankees Fan Saves Friend from Jaws of Vicious Animal.”
      Looking over the reporter’s shoulder, the lad said, “But I’m not a Yankees fan.”
      “Sorry,” said the reporter, “I guess I just assumed everyone in New York is a Yankees fan.” Hitting the delete key, the reporter typed in “Young Clinton Loyalist Rescues Friend from Horrific Dog Attack.”
      “I’m not much for the Clinton’s either,” said the boy.
      “Well, this is New York ,” said the reporter, “and most folks here are pretty big on the Clinton’s. Well, what person do you admire? What team do you root for?”
      “I’m a Nationals Fan,” said the boy, “and I really like Donald J. Trump a lot.”
      Hitting the delete key a second time, the reporter typed, “Arrogant Little Conservative Bastard Kills Beloved Family Pet.”

      NHL hockey struggles in Miami, even with success, but the Tampa Bay franchise does great due to lots of retired northern expats.

      Phoenix was a mistake, but Vegas has promise.

      Seattle could support a team, as can Quebec City (of course). I look for AZ Coyotes or FL Panthers to move to one of those locations.

      The Germans tried it with their pilots during the war and boy, was that a mistake. The Allied pilots had a fixed number of missions before they were done and even then, got breaks. Not so the German pilots who were expected to fly until they were shot down or the war was over. My father said rumors about it had filtered thru while he was still in England and he finally met German pilots on the trip home who confirmed it. He said the majority of them had gone thru withdrawal shortly after capture and it definitely impaired them in the air. When the ship got to NY, the Americans were ordered that they were never to convey a word of the forbidden conversations they’d had with the non-existent German prisoners who were not on board.

      ROTFLMAO…. Never said it wouldn’t. Chemical bravery will make you brave. It will also make you reckless, irrational, and mind numbingly stupid. Its negatives far outweigh its benefits which is why no sane rational professional military allows their usage.

      Its not so simple as one hyped up idiot getting themselves killed, in combat situations they tend to get everyone around them killed as well. But it does make them brave, suicidally brave, but brave none the less.

      Yea, not to be an ass or anything, but it wasn’t just the Germans. My grandfather was a WWII pilot, he was also one of the founding members of the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club. The American Air Force relied on amphetamines pretty heavily as well.

      That is why the Hell Angel’s even to this day are so profoundly associated with amphetamines. The Original Hell’s Angels were all WWII Air Force Pilots. Later a bunch of Army guys joined, because, well, the Army is where the motorcycle part of it came in.

      The Story as I got it from my dad and grandmother is this. While in England, between missions my grandfather and his friends would blow off steam by…… Stealing Harley Davidson’s from the United States Army Signal Corps and riding them into the English towns near where their air bases were and pub crawling until they couldn’t see straight.

      When grampa, a full bird colonel, return home from WWII he brought back 2 trophies. 1 was the seat out of Mousiloni’s personal fighter plane. The other was the Harley that he kept stealing from the Signal Crops. I played on both as a young child more or less unaware of their historical significance. The meth part I did not learn about until I was much much older.

      Dad said some crews had such fast turn around between missions that they did take stimulants they had to request from the base doc but it was not a case of being ordered use them and their requests weren’t always granted. Nobody wanted to fly like that or with a crew like that unless absolutely necessary.

      I was growing khat and I didn’t even know it. It was used in NZ as a herbaceous screening plant in many gardens. Then the Somalis arrived in town as refugees and they all seemed ERY interested in our herbaceous screen. Tore the bloody thing out as soon as I discovered that they were getting mildly high on my herbaceous screen and they all went away. Khat is not a mixture of tobacco and meth. It’s a traditional intoxicant through the Horn of Africa. The cops cracked down in Khat trading and it’s now underground in the refugee Somali community here.

      Nope, sorry. If I was ever told the town names, I was way to young to remember them. Though, my not remembering the town names shouldn’t be much of a big deal, as, if I remember correctly, he flew fighter support for the 303rd bombardment group.

      Before America officially entered WWII he flew with the AVG. The Hell’s Angel Squadren to be exact. Because he was retired Army Air-corps Captain he could not legally fly for Claire Chennault, so he is listed as Flight mechanic “Hank” Walker. He had flown with Eddie Rickenbacker in WWI in the 94th Aero Squadron hence the legal prohibition on his flying with the Flying Tigers.

      He, interestingly enough, was the Commandant of the 94th Aero Squadron when he retired for good in 1958, one year before succumbing to prostate cancer. The Hell’s Angels that the world came to know, was the Hell’s Angels of Californian Sonny Barger. Sonny’s Hell’s Angels was a copy-cat of the original. Not even created until 1957, the real original Hell’s Angels were created back in 1946.

      In reality, it was probably a case where the Obama administration used Operation Cassandra as the “Stick” in a “Carrot and Stick” approach to negotiating with Iran. In other words, I suspect there is a whole lot less there than is being implied.

      @ doriangrey:

      Great background on the Hell’s Angels. Dad was a bomber pilot w/the 386 (IIRC it was the 386). Flew B-26. One of the best times we had together is when I got to take my parents to the Smithsonian Air & Space and they had a B26 on display in sections so you could see everything. He got to explain/show me all the stuff he had talked about.

      You see those things and realize how cramped they were – no heat – and realized these men spent hours in flying tin cans loaded with ordnance getting shot at at X thousands of feet. Jesus

      I’d throw her ass in jail just on general principles, but unfortunately, I don’t think she actually did anything illegal. But the Awan brothers had access to everything – and turned it all over to Pakistan. Including SEAL operations, it is believed. It got men killed.

      doesn’t look like it

      In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.

      The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.

      Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.

      They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

      But as Project Cassandra reached higher into the hierarchy of the conspiracy, Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy, and a review of government documents and court records.

      this just gets worse.

      McCabe has been in with the Russian mafia and Comey and Mueller have known

      For years James Comey and Robert Mueller, as FBI directors, knew Andrew McCabe maintained problematic contacts with Russian officials including organized crime figures yet did little to investigate the now-FBI deputy director’s relationships even after other agents caught McCabe tampering in Russian-linked cases, FBI sources said.

      And while both Comey and Mueller have used the unlimited resources of the United States government to try and tie President Donald Trump to Russia, the former FBI chiefs largely ignored McCabe’s associations with Russian mobsters and a Putin-linked billionaire under federal investigation by their own Bureau.

      The same Russian billionaire at the center of Mueller’s recent indictment of Paul Manafort.

      anyway, i started the curing process some days ago and did some minor modification with some spanish cedar that i have on hand.

      i took the following out of my coolidor, i will do a post on that engineering marvel later…

      i placed 20 drew estate undercrowns, 40 oliva sun grown, 10 aging room pelo d’oro, 10 from a place that i shall not name 🙂 , 10 oliva V, 10 AJ fernadez enclave, and 10 Montecristo espadas. and 10 Perdomo lot 23…$$$$$

      i had always had a nice cigar here and there but was terrified to formalize having them at hand as i feared that i would slip right back into my very bad habits.

      well, i didnt. a couple of years ago i started smoking cigars again. i might have 2 or 3 a day and then none a day…or many a day, depends.

      that was a shit ton of $$$ cigars that went into the box. i left a block of the stuff that flower peeps use in the base of arrangements in the humidor. it was in a plastic cup. its green and absorbs water then releases it. the thing is that its great for curing the spanish cedar in a humidor but VERY lousy for when the cigars are in because the cigars will keep absorbing, bloat, get lumpy, and then rot; not unlike a certain blogger from culver city.

      i was going to place the humidor in there for longer storage for these excellent smokes and i decided to look in it one last time.

      8 of the cigars were already starting to bloat, several were absorbing way too much water. i forgot to take out the florist block.

      they got removed and put in room air and look ok. had i left the block of foam in there there would have been destruction as i was using this for longer term holding. i would have had a bunch of formerly very nice and now unwound rotted tobacco.

      I had to save about 50 cigars that were allowed to dry out for around 5 months at a pawn shop. (I bought the humidor from them and got all the cigars for free because they legally couldn’t sell them). Used the green flower foam. Saved about 35 of them. The rest exploded.

      Good morning. Having to do with nothing I was watching the History Channel over the weekend.
      They had a piece on the Dark Ages and how they ended, One factor was the Crusades because it opened
      Europe to to new ideas including literature and medicine etc.Interesting since libs see no value in the Crusades
      which they view as European white supremicists persecuting brown people.
      The other factor is a warming period ending the Little Ice Age. Crops flourished, health and innovation improved.
      Warming is good according to the segment. That piece will never be shown at any university.

      Doesn’t Congress take a dim view of people who fail to appear for hearings?

      the penalties are minor in terms of fine and prison. An ordinary citizen’s problem is paying for the legal stuff. Somebody like Holder gets his bills paid by the gov’t. And if you want to fight a conviction, guess what – in 2 yrs or so, the makeup of Congress will change and they won’t remember your name.

      It’s a joke.

      Al Franken is still in Congress. So is Menendez. Conyers gets to retire with a pension. Which includes Congressional healthcare, NOT Obamacare.

      Just for Coldwarrior …. and any other cricket aficionados out there ….

      The results of the second Ashes test match on day 5….

      England First Innings all out for 403
      Australia First Innings 662 for 9 (declared)
      England Second Innings all out for 218 ( they fell totally to bits on day five just as the Aussies planned)

      The Aussies win by an innings and 41 runs and don’t have to play a second innings

      🙂

      Two zip with three still to play. The Aussies have their tails up!

      I’ve been reading Cernovich for months and altho he’s good about some things, I don’t think one thing he’s feared about McMasters has come close. Higgins was let go awhile ago and everything Cernovich warned about with McMaster’s supposed infiltration of the WH is not panning out.

      Listen to Trump’s National Security Strategy speech today. Look at what has happened to ISIS on the battlefield.

      If Cernovich is to be believed, Trump is a chump under McMaster’s influence. And so are Mattis and Kelly. That’s a lot to swallow.

      Trump is defeating the enemy without compunction or qualifiers.

      Who’s the chump?

      Here’s another predictable line of attack. Gorsuch is widely considered one of Trump’s accomplishments. WaPo is now trying to undermine confidence is his judgement and temperment by publishing an unsourced report that he wanted to pull the nomination because Gorsuch wasn’t ‘loyal’

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-reportedly-considered-rescinding-gorsuchs-nomination/2017/12/18/ad2b3b68-e1c7-11e7-9eb6-e3c7ecfb4638_story.html?utm_term=.446f903e0969

      The ‘dementia’ meme isn’t over yet either. The DM has a story about Trump picking up a glass of water with both hands as indicative of mental decay.

      Trump sparks fresh dementia concerns after he drinks small glass of water with two hands like a child – just days after he slurred his words during Jerusalem speech

      Snicker snicker… just messin with you and Aussie.

      Baseball was only invented one year before Cricket (1839 Baseball, 1840 Cricket), the similarity between the two sports is genuinely coincidental. Both games indisputable have their origins in the Irish and English games of “Cat” and “Rounders”. But diverge in their own directions from that common ground pretty much from before either game was invented.

      I believe that you’re right. Trump is NOT the chump many take him for. There is a public (city) persona and then there is the actual behind the scenes persona. I know for a fact that Mad Dog is nobody’s puppy. McMaster is perhaps professional enough to divorce his personal politics from his pubic face, as all military are required to do ALL of the time. Denizens of the swamp can’t handle this because such a quality is so very rare inside the Beltway. More’s the pity.

      Not to be pedantic my friend, but Test Cricket/Cricket was invented in 1840. Cricket, like its distant cousin Baseball (invented in 1839) is based upon the games of “Tip-Cat” and “Rounders” both of which are from the 16th century though are very distinctively different games.
