  1. Marcus Cooper is not having a good day.
  2. Mnuchin and his Chuck Muncie glasses is a sneaky play this week.
  3. Nice ending to the Dodgers/Giants game. It makes it easier to understand why the Dodgers have seven wins in September. Utley at bat. Puig on 1st. Utley squares up to bunt Puig takes off for second Utely pulls the bat back Puig slows down as he approaches 2nd, rather than slide, and Joe Panik is waiting for him after Posey's throw.
  4. At work today a millennial kid mentioned Rob Reiner and his radical theory about Trump and Russia. I asked if it was as radical as his theory about how you are supposed to put on your socks and shoes. The kid just gave me a blank stare. Does anyone get this reference or did I watch waaaay too much reruns when I was a kid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prRtcQz8Uqk&t=38s
  5. Whew
  6. Herrera was ridiculed for his nonchalant play on that inside-the-park homerun against Washington a few weeks ago (and rightfully so), but he deserves major kudos for that catch to end last night's game against the Dodgers. That was ridiculous. https://www.mlb.com/video/herreras-catch-ends-the-game/c-1842723183?tid=63817564
  7. Steven Souza showed no mercy towards Lester tonight.
  8. Trump saying Nambia was like Jerry Seinfeld saying Mulva. It sounded right, sounded close.
  9. Welcome back, Doug.
  10. Cannon is in the rotation. I have the vaguest memories of the show coming on in reruns on a UHF channel. I haven't seen it in a long time. I mostly remember it from a flashback scene in an episode of the Sopranos when a young Tony is propped up in front of the TV watching the show. I learned awhile later that the choice of Cannon was not random. David Chase's first writing gig was on Cannon. It has all the trademarks of a seventies cop show: two dimensional villains/a plot twist that comes at about the 0:40 mark/completely and unambiguously resolved at the end. What makes the show go is the charisma of William Conrad. Yes, he had the physique of a Butterball turkey, but he also had that great booming voice and a fierce mustache. Not to mention that tank-like Buick with the car phone that was revolutionary in 1972.
  11. I wonder if the reason Obama and Bush have remained silent about Trump's behavior is because they know the hammer is coming and realize the best strategy is to just stay out of the way.
  12. The Legend of Glen Kozlowski.
  13. As an 80's teenager I will always think of him first as Molly Ringwald's father in "Pretty In Pink". Even as a negligent FBI agent in "Godfather II" (he shouldn't have left Frankie Five Angels alone), he was great.
