Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

That is a great idea, maybe get some musical acts and broadcast it live on PBS, give it a catchy title like "A Capitol Fourth" or something...

(sigh), maybe the big news will be that this time they won't drag out the Beach Boys again.

Re: Robert Kraft charged in Florida prostitution sting

Just goes to show, no matter how rich you are, once you enter Florida, you run the same risk of stupid crimes as everyone else there, who all seem to be working overtime to keep FL in the lead as America's meme generator.

Re: Rams/Saints playoff game

I saw the PI, and I thought at that moment, "way to hand the whole game back to the Saints". But they somehow did not call it. One official claimed that at the time he thought the ball was tipped, but that still does not excuse the helmet to helmet contact. Either way, officiating is like the weathe...

Re: Super Bowl LIII Rams vs. Pats

It was not lost on most sports radio commentators that the Rams were Tom Brady's first Super Bowl, and given his age, they could now also be his last Super Bowl. Bringing it full circle, so to speak.

Re: Super Bowl LIII Rams vs. Pats

I am as tired of New England as everyone else, but what they have done over 17 years is unprecedented in the NFL and likely won't ever happen again. The most impressive 17 year stretch in pro sports remains the Yankees: went to 15 World Series in 17 years from 1947 to 1964, and won 10 of them. Tom B...

Re: U.S. Troops Coming Home from Syria

In 1961, JFK sent an add'l 500 military advisers to South Vietnam to aid the 700 that were sent there by Ike. By the end of the following year, there were 11,000 military "advisers" there. But history wouldn't repeat itself, right? “History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes...” And I don't...
