A Joke from Spaceballs has Come True

I just read that China is importing and selling bottled air from Canada. That’s funny standing alone, but it’s even funnier since canned air was a joke in Mel Brooks’ sci-fi spoof classic, “Spaceballs”.

Also, I agree that we need to curb our pollution… but we MUST get China and other developing nations to clean up their acts as well!

The Winter Blues…

So, feeling my age this week after:

Report: Steve Francis Not Using Drugs, Just Old” … He’s 38

and Peyton Manning’s ongoing fight to stave off retirement, at the grand old age of 39…

“Broncos QB Peyton Manning will practice today, for the first time since being removed from a disastrous game against the Chiefs and put up on the shelf to let his various bruises and tears heal. He is not expected to play this weekend—Brock Osweiler is still the starter, but probably not for long.

Gary Kubiak made the announcement yesterday, and it’s a reflection more of Manning’s medical progress than of any hints toward the team’s plans. Manning’s body really started to break down this year, but it was a partially torn foot ligament that finally forced him out—amid a career-worst start to his season—and put him in a hard cast and then a walking boot for few weeks….”

Then I hear that the Reds have traded Todd Frazier, which may be the smart thing to do, but he’s so cool, and it just makes me sad that we can’t hang on to more than 2 players for more than an arbitration year. That’s baseball… we can’t have nice things, and that makes me sad, too… on top of losing Chapman last week. And Andy Dalton’s injury. And global warming, and Trump, and so on. At least Trump is entertaining.

Star Wars better not suck… I don’t think I can handle the disappointment! That said… I can’t wait. This will cheer the darkest of hearts…

 

Pete Rose’s Ban Will Still Not be Lifted

Very Bad Person Pete Rose

The NY Times just reported that Commissioner Rob Manfred has denied Pete Rose’s third appeal for reinstatement. Baseball’s all-time hit king will still not be allowed to participate in MLB activities, nor be allowed entry into the Hall of Fame. The ban was entered in 1989- so that’s about 26 years since Charlie Hustle has been barred from the sport.

In other news, it appears Alex Rodriguez will return for another season. A Rod has been caught actually cheating with performance enhancing substances on multiple occasions.
