Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

I know it's only one week but Peyton Manning looks cooked... 60 Minutes piece on Deflategate all but says the NFL was setting up the Patriots... David Ortiz is now just one of 4 men with 500 HR and 3 World Series rings - the others are Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson. That's some good company... I think history will say that Hillary Clinton's big mistake was not running against President Obama in 2012. Her husband Bill urged her to do it. Now I think she has too much baggage to be elected... David Ortiz needs just 22 more doubles to have 600 for his career. There are currently only 2 players in MLB history to have 500 HR and 600 doubles - Henry Aaron and Barry Bonds... Not usually an Alex Jones fan but this is interesting... If any President had handled Iraq and Afghanistan the way President Obama has - the MSM would be using the word "quagmire" 10,000 times a day... Can't watch those new Steve Jobs movie commercials without remembering Bill Burr's bit on Steve Jobs...


  1. Big Papi has had a very nice (HOF) career, but for some reason I really, really don't like him. Nothing personal, I just can't stand to watch him hit.

  2. To each his own. I felt the same way about Wade Boggs

  3. IIRC I saw him complaining about someone watching a homer and I'm thinking there's the pot calling the kettle black.
