Monday Musings: The Boston Dead Sox and Fake Florida News
Do you anyone – even your 90-year-old great-grandfather – who is still listening to the games on the radio?
Best Easter message ever, by President Donald J. Trump:
“Happy Easter to ALL, including the Radical Left CRAZIES who rigged our Presidential Election, and want to destroy our Country!”
Yes! What can I say in response except, Dominus vobiscum… et cum spiritu tuo.
In other news, with its All-Star game pullout from Atlanta, Major League Baseball just made it a lot easier to forget about ever paying attention to the Red Sox again, although the Old Towne Team is making it pretty damn convenient as well.
Going into the weekend, the Baltimore Orioles were supposed to be the worst team in baseball. But then the O’s swept the Sox three straight games at Fenway. Baltimore scored more runs in the third inning Sunday (seven) than Boston did all weekend (five).
It would take a heart of stone not to laugh.
Call them the Dead Sox. Do you anyone – even your 90-year-old great-grandfather – who is still listening to the games on the radio? (So many good things about the Sox collapse, not the least of which is it’s even further destroying the world’s worst sports radio station, Shillville – WEEI.)
Also, it’s costing the owner of the agitprop Boston Globe, the skeletal John Henry, millions and millions of dollars – the sooner he goes bankrupt, the sooner that POS newspaper folds.
Under bust-out Gov. Charlie Bacon, Fenway’s capacity is 12 percent, yet I’m told NESN this weekend was advertising “good seats still available” for April. All of a sudden for the Red Sox it’s 1966 again!
Is it too late for LeBron James to get his Chinese money out of this dying enterprise?
By the way, also screw Woke-a-Cola, a diabetes factory as somebody called them this weekend.
Did you know that two black ministers are suing Woke-a-Cola for peddling its deadly products, saying, “We’re losing more to the sweets than we are to the streets.”
It was great to see Charles Barkley not parrot the woke nonsense before the Final Four games on Saturday – he has his ups and downs, but basically Barkley’s an honest guy.
The next time the Democrats call the Georgia voter-integrity law “Jim Crow on steroids,” maybe the GOP should point out who imposed Jim Crow on the South, along with the Ku Klux Klan, massive resistance, standing in the schoolhouse door, etc.
Another Mass. State cop arrested – stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
My new favorite man of God is the Rev. Artur Pawlowski in Calgary.
In case you missed it, when the Mask Police came to shut down his church, he screamed at them: “You come back with a warrant. Out! Out! Out! Out of this property! Gestapo is not allowed here!”
The pastor continued: “You Gestapo Nazi Communist fascists. Don’t you dare come back here!”
Where is our Artur Pawlowski?
I’m not complaining, you understand, but I haven’t seen Jim Acosta for a very long time, have you?
But the avatar of CNN Very Fake News reappeared on Brian Humpty Dumpty Stelter’s agitprop Sunday morning and sort of explained his MIA status:
“We’re all dealing with some post-Trump stress disorder.”
Hey Abilio (for that is his real name), screw – back into the Witness Protection Program for you!
Speaking of fake news, 60 Minutes has done it again – accusing Gov. Ron DeSantis of being in the satchel for Publix supermarkets in the vaccine rollout in Florida.
As you well know from countless examples (think Texas Air National Guard in 2004), 60 Minutes has about as much connection to real news as, well, CNNABCNBCMSNBC Washington Post New York Times et al.
Too bad 60 Minutes didn’t check out the fact that in 2018, Publix did its damnedest to defeat then-Rep. Ron DeSantis when he was running in the GOP primary for governor against Adam Putnam, the FL agriculture commissioner at the time.
Publix dumped more than $700,000 into Putnam’s campaign against DeSantis, calling him Publix’s “hometown candidate” – he’s from Polk County, headquarters of Publix.
DeSantis was a huge underdog (Disney gave Putnam another $836,000) until he was endorsed by, you guessed it, Donald J. Trump.
All of this is public record, but 60 Minutes’ motto is “Never Let the Facts Get in the Way of a Good Story.”
The corollary of which is, “Some Stories Are Just Too Good to Check Out.”
Saturday Night Live made sport of Rep. Matt Gaetz, which is totally acceptable, or would be, if they hadn’t given a total pass to every Democratic sleaze who’s done even worse stuff, including, but not limited to, Andrew Cuomo, Harvey Weinstein (whom NBC actively protected, basically firing Ronan Farrow), Matt Lauer, Tom Brokaw, Bill Clinton (refused to report Juanita Broaddrick’s credible rape allegations against him), Dementia Joe Biden and his degenerate son Hunter…. I could go on all day.
Did you see anything in the Saturday newspapers about how the latest DC terrorist – a cop-killer who went by the name of ‘Noah X’ — was a follower of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam?
George Soros just pledged $500 million to Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
Bard is the alma mater of the Steely Dan boys – thus the references in “My Old School” to how they’ll return to Annandale when “California tumbles into the sea.”
That’s how I feel about “My Old School” now – the next time I listen to it will be when California tumbles into the sea.
