Cam Newton says he doesn’t like women who can’t cook and don’t know when to be quiet. Cam, look in the mirror if you want to ID someone who doesn’t know when to shut up.
Or if you want to see another one, how about Cincinnati Reds’ President Phil Castellini? He got on the radio in Cincy Tuesday and offered up some faux-victim, defensive rationalizations for the fact the Reds have made the playoffs four times in the last 15 years. Told the fans that if they don’t like that, they can go somewhere else. Then he reminded them there’s no other place for them to go. Then he said the rational thing for the team to do would be to move to another market. Seems the fans didn’t like that, if you can believe it. Castellini has since apologized. But that’s a Carole King apology. “It’s too late, Baby…”
I love Philadelphia. Because those folks are as jaded as I am. Monday night Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm committed three errors in front of the home fans. After the second one, a tv camera captured Bohm clearly mouthing the sentence, “I f—ing hate this place.” Meaning Philadelphia. Meaning the Phillies’ ballpark. Fast forward to Tuesday night. You think Bohm got booed? Oh, just hell no. He received a standing ovation from the Philly crowd. I love that f—ing place.
Wow. That appeared to be pretty personal to Patrick Beverley, didn’t it? I’m talking about his Minnesota Timberwolves play-in victory over his former team, the Clippers, who he feels done him dirty. When asked what he gold his former Clippers teammates, Beverley said, “I told them to take they ass home. Long flight to L.A. Take they ass home!” Tears of vengeful joy. I always like tears of vengeful joy, either those of others or mine. Now Beverley and the T-Wolves have to play Memphis. He will soon be crying for another reason.
One more thing. When did Mike Shanahan become the governor of New York?
