UFOs? Well, that ain’t swamp gas. Those things aren’t weather balloons. It’s pretty arrogant (as a species, we are great at being arrogant) to think we are alone in the Universe. The probability of that is exactly zero. My advice? Don’t piss ‘em off. Although any form of intelligent life would not want any part […]

Game One in the East tonight in Miami. It’s a matchup of familiar playoff foes as the Heat host the Celtics. The Eastern Conference Championship Series has been the end of the road for Boston in three of the last four seasons, but I think the Celts will get over the hump this time. I’m […]

It was predictable, if also pathetic. Already. “There’s no need to classify this as a hate crime.” Yes, there is. Because it was one. Read the shooter’s own incoherent manifesto. He killed ten people and wanted to kill many more simply because he was filled with racial hatred and nothing else. He traveled 200 miles […]

Once again, the Suns set in the West. And the Bucks stop here, too. Playing at home in Game Seven, Phoenix scored 27 points in the first half against the Mavs. No, Suns fans were not screaming, “Lou!” The Celtics picked a good time to win two straight, something neither they nor the Bucks had […]

Yeah, I know. Rampant gun violence is just the price of freedom. Guns don’t kill people. You can’t legislate morality. The only “gun problem” we have is that we don’t have enough guns. And, despite it all, we’re still “the greatest country on Earth.” We have no systemic or institutional racism. Any mere mention of […]

Suns players are saying they’re not nervous about Game Seven against the Mavs today. I’ll take that bet. One hundred career homers for Shohei Ohtani. I’ve been told he’s a decent pitcher, too. Dangit, Astros! You can only win eleven in a row? Just give the ball to Justin today and start a new streak. […]

Clarence Thomas is absolutely right when he says the recent SCOTUS leak is “an infidelity” that has destroyed the Court’s culture and credibility. Yup. But so is his refusal to recuse himself in any and every case having to do with Trump in general orJan. 6 in particular. “Ginni, Ginni, who can I turn to?…”  […]

Ryan Tannehill took a bad rap a couple of weeks ago when he told the media it is not his job to mentor Titans rookie Malik Willis. He’s right. It’s not. Tannehill did not say he was going to cold-shoulder Willis or in any way be a bad teammate. He said he would always answer […]

Those were amazing pictures from the EHT Telescope capturing—for the first time—the Black Hole at the center of the GOP. Einstein always said it was there, but it’s still exciting to get visual confirmation. Speaking of visual confirmation, you didn’t need a telescope to see Trump and his lackeys hauling boxes of classified documents out […]

Things just got real! The release of the full 2022 NFL schedule Thursday night means we are now rolling downhill toward September. YOWW! Quick-flash reactions: The Cowboys’ sked is not nearly as “easy” as some folks are saying it is. The league did the Texans zero favors. Houston plays back-to-back home games only once, and […]
