Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Congrats to the Buccaneers. Let the debate between Michael Jordan, Lebron, Gretzky and Tom Brady begin... With Trump out of office cable news ratings are cratering. This makes my idea of having Strong Bad read the news a viable ratings bonanza... The Dodgers have signed reigning NL Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer. This make the team very hard to beat and also very hard to root for (except for Mookie Betts)...  Have to think that every single offensive player prop for the Chiefs came in under last night. Wonder if you bet the under on all player props if you'd make money every year...  February 14th really could easily be renamed National Shave Your Legs and Pubes Day sponsored by Lady Gillette instead of Valentine's Day... In 1,000 years if archaeologists find Ted Williams severed head - will they think that's what we worshiped?...  


  1. I checked in at Borepatch earlier this morning, but to reiterate here, the commercials were terrible! When they weren't virtue signalling, they were just inane. Even the Jeep ad was preachy.
    I was happy Brady and Gronk scored so I was rooting for Brady. This was the only football game I have watched all season. Did you notice how the announcers kept explaining away Mahomes shortcomings? I think they have a prejudice against Brady. That was often the case with the Patriots commentary.

  2. Watched the game at a local bar and I paid little attention to the ads. Saw the Jeep ad and wondered "Is that Bruce Springsteen?" Have a couple friends who can no longer listen to Springsteen because he's become so preachy and left-wing. Guessing now they'll never buy a Jeep either.

    Bar played jukebox during halftime so I missed that show too which is just as well since I had no idea who that guy was anyway.

  3. I just checked, and you are right - It was Bruce Springsteen! I had no idea, but he can keep his opinions to himself.
