Nope. It's Fake News all the way down.

-peter

bizarre game, kid swats ball away from Judge, ball gets stuck in netting above outfield fence tied

Jack is Back!

Just to show you how far behind I am on MLB, I didn't know Justin Verlander was no longer a Tiger. And those were bizarre hits and plays -peter. I might want to take the Jitney in to the Bronx next week. This could be an interesting series.

Now the Yankees' starter is out of the game, hit by batted ball in his non-pitching hand.

henry

Yale 1, Cornell 0 in New Haven. First half.

This is Steve Bannon's speech at the Value Voters summit. It's good for understanding his thinking.

Gentlejim

That’s very strange, peter. Not watching the game, but the non-pitching hand is usually covered by a device to prevent such an injury. :)

Jack is Back!

I guess Aaron Judge is back on his "swing and miss" bandwagon. Except for that one boo-boo, Erlander has masterful stuff.

Jack is Back!

henry,

Did you see the end to the Maryland - Wisconsin game:) I thought a hockey game was going to break out.

henry

JiB, didn't watch it.

Extraneus

I know it's bad form to re-post lost comments from the end of dead threads, but this one might help someone:

Hey, I just hooked up a $29 digital TV antenna and it works great!

(I read earlier today that, every month, my $159 cable bill includes $7 for CNN, almost $3 for ESPN, and surely more to other companies I hate. WTF??? I'm cutting the cord Monday. I think cable internet is around $59, so I'll save about $100 a month. You guys probably already knew this, but I'm a little slow sometimes when it comes to money.)

henry

Ext, I get by with just the antenna and a stack of DVDs.

Jack is Back!

Maryland won 5-4 but Badgers had a corner with time running out and the header was covered by the goalie who took exception to the Terrapin trying to remove it from his hands. It got ugly in a heartbeat.

Catsmeat

Boola boola, henry! I was Calhoun '80, incidentally--what were you?

henry

Morse '81

henry

JiB, those scuffles can get interesting. Had the crowd join in at Columbia once. That was ugly.

GUS

My 2 home states Jack, I root for 'Sconsin now.

A short video message about Harvey Weinstein from Courtney Love:

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Extraneus,

We pay $75 for high-speed internet and about $15 for Netflix. That's it.

I get all the news I need from videos and a live feed of Fox. Entertainment comes from Netflix, on which we mostly watch old movies and British mysteries.

Catsmeat

Did you know Marina Belica, your class, also Morse I think? She was the pitch of Redhot & Blue, the singing group of which I was a founding member... She was very beautiful and an excellent musician.

henry

Yes. Marina was a wonderful musician.

GUS

Miss M!!! George Lopez is a pathetic RACIST HACK.

BeenThereDoneThat

Here's some news---Ophelia!

henry

Catsmeat, look up the October Project, Marina is still recording.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Gus,

Indeed Lopes is a racist hack, and he also obviously cannot tailor his act for his audience.

I hope this is the beginning of his career tanking.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Lopez, not Lopes.

Well, isn't that something! She didn't have much of a voice when I knew her, more a pianist and just consummate musical taste--but there you are--good for her! To the rest of you, I apologize--I wouldn't ordinarily try everyone's patience with ole-time-notes, but I think most people right now are watching college ball or other endeavors of sport!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

Not me. We don't have cable and have zero interest in baseball, since we never had a major league team near us. The last time I remember anything about baseball was when I was in the 8th grade and Mantis and Maris were vying for most home runs.

I am trying to follow Weinstein News and various political strategy theories from Bannon and people like that.

GUS

Paul Byrne played with October project, and he grew up with Larry Mullen.

henry

Final: Yale 1, Cornell 0. Yay!

Extraneus

I think most people right now are watching college ball or other endeavors of sport!

Feats of strength, we like to call them.

Threadkiller
But a source close to the comedian insisted to Page Six that Lopez’s segment was “only supposed to be four minutes,” even though he was listed as the night’s emcee.

We need Lombardo to tell us the actual timeline.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Spoke to my friend who just got back from Europe. Visiting Hungary, Czech Republic, they were overwhelmed by how welcomed they were as Americans, and how the guides went on and on about "ugly Communist architecture" and how glad they were they could be their own country. Oh, and by the way, they pointed out they didn't take immigrants.

Then they went to France for a train connection to Switzerlanad and the taxi people were rude and there were military guys at every train station armed with AK-47's or something similar. They were glad to leave France.

When she got home, she discovered her daughter and family out in California might have to be evacuated due to the fires.

GUS

Great defense NY

GUS

Right TK, so the BROWN PRIVILEGED HACK was supposed to be an ASS HOLE for only 4 minutes.
He earned his pay.

daddy

I see on replay that the catcher blew the play by not catching the ball. The throw was in plenty of time. Error on the catcher from my vantage point. Bummer, TM:(

Caught the last inning. Heck of a job Verlander.

maryrose

What an ending to the Yanks/Astros game.
Verlander is king!

Extraneus

Is he brown, TK? He looks white to me.

They try to make Spanish speakers the same as a separate race. Ridiculous.

Well that is the difference between old and new Europe:

DebinGA

Hubs is watching SEC games with GA v. Mizzou about to start. Just asked him if Steve Spurrier had died - answer "No, he quit mid-season." Checked and Spurrier quit 2 yrs. ago this time, announcing "I'm firing myself." What a career. FL Gator QB 3 seasons, winning Heisman Trophy his senior year. Played in NFL 10 yrs, became very successful FL Gators head coach, revived the SC football program, then he just decided in mid-Oct. to call it quits. One of a kind. Many UGA fans would add "thankfully".

Free James D!

Jim @ 7:28

I'm sure there are a lot more stories like the one you posted. I hope they all come out. Let's see heads roll in our toxic entertainment industries by the hundreds.

DebinGA

Trump's media career spanned decades and included lots of beautiful women. Have any claimed Trump abused them?

Captain Hate

So I'm supposed to be sympathetic to the Yankees? Not happening. STFU & GTFO.

Talk about music or literature any time you want, Catsmeat.

mockmook

Guess this is the soccer thread :)

Portland Thorns beat the North Carolina Courage

Captain Hate

More importantly, Deb, per Curb Dive: HAVE ANY OF THEM BEEN LITIGATED?

mockmook


Courtney seemed so sane and charismatic in that clip...sad

Miss Marple the Deplorable

debinGA,

Only those few fakers Gloria Allred dragged out.

I think that after Trump divorced Marla Maples he spent some time sort of being a playboy. There wss no shortage of women willing to bed him, given his money and celebrity.

I think he simply realized it wasn't how he wanted to live his life. He said that Melania was someone he could TALK to.

Melania is also not interested in the jet set. Trump said she is a private person.

I think that is what drew them together.

The BEST part of this story would be if she had a run-in with Harvey Weinstein!

mockmook

DinG,

Didn't some of the gals that Allred ran out accuse Trump of something (before slinking away)

mockmook

IOW, what MM said

DebinGA

I don't even remember Gloria and her gal gang. Whatever it was must not have amounted to much.

jimmyk

Not sure if this was already posted, but Jen Rubin is getting some well-deserved beclowning, with her complete reversal of positions on Iran and Obamacare because of Trump.

Interception palooza in Gainesville. LOL.

I'll come back after I catch up.

Tonto

Hi all! Just back from a week in North East Harbor, ME. Might be the one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Stopped at the Red Barn in Augusta to bring home two quarts of their outstanding fish chowder (lobster rich!).

Rooting for the Astros.

Ta!

Catsmeat

Good for you, MM; I am also making virtuous use of my time, reacquainting myself with grommets to add a skirt to new drapes (while husband and son root for the Huskers against Ohio State, expecting the worst). Grommets are actually pretty cool.

Also, Jen Rubin deserves everything she is getting and more--what a tool.

Captain Hate

Yes, jimmyk, it was linked earlier but I'm glad you relinked it because I scrolled beyond the garbage clickbait and read the comments to find, *gasp*, signs of intelligence at what I've come to call Red Slate. Somehow that makes me feel good.

GUS

I know for a FACT that TRUMP abused a woman.

Catsmeat

CH, you will like to know that on the Ace weekend pet thread, there is a sustained discussion of tonguing a possum out of a toilet--the chat has not yet reached to political considerations, but I think that's just a matter of time.

Jack is Back!

tonto,

If you are in EH let me know. E goes to Belgium on Tuesday and I would love to catch up with you and Harry.

Just back from Le Charlot. Sat outside and watched the world go by on Main St. as the guys next door at the Old Town Lodge tried to fire up everyone to join the Masons. My grandfather founded that lodge and Frederick went over to remind them of that:)

Just a perfect night in Southampton.

Here is Sebastian Gorka's speech at the Valuue Voters Sumit.

Again, recommend in order to understand his thinking.

Matt:

"There is a condition in mental illness called anosognosia, where the individual does not recognize their illness."

Why I still play golf.

Jack is Back!

RG and rich,

What's with the Gator's uniforms?

Extraneus

You can't have a Weinstein type problem if you're attracted to women who are attracted to you, which I assume was Trump's deal. Weinstein liked a bit of a struggle. He didn't care if they actually like him. Probably got turned on even more when they didn't. That's what did him in.

 narciso

This was one example of what was said earlier:

Jack, yes, back in the South Fork! Let's make a date.

GUS

Like I said, Trump abused RODHAM......306-232

Captain Hate

Yes, narc, one of the comments mentioned something similar.

Catsmeat, did you see Teddy's picture in the pets thread two weeks ago? For whatever reason I can't keep it from rotating 90 degrees in my aviator.

 narciso

matt, deplore me if you must

You just can't remember the score, bb. It keeps the game fun that way.

So I hear they are selling "I was molested by Harvey Weinstein" T shirts on Hollywood Boulevard.

Captain Hate

Yes, per what Jim said earlier, Maturin was proudly Irish and Catalan.

Great. Will send email to set up a date next week.

We start discussing Barcelona and end up with Patrick O'Brien. fun.

Matt--after the first double bogey I don't remember the score. I also don't remember what I did right to hit that last shot...Fortunately the guys I play with are equally afflicted and we keep paying one another the same $5 or $10 per round (Big Money!)as it all evens out.

Jack is Back!

Gators TD. Using their ugly uniforms. If that works. Great.

Catsmeat

CH, Teddy is super cute. Am looking at your avatar, not Ace's prior thread. Dogs are the absolute best, just to make a global claim!

Captain Hate

Thank you, Catsmeat. I've loved all my prior three Airedales and could talk your ear off about what specifically was endearing about each of them, but Teddy is something special.

Man Tran

MM,

Our cruise through the Balkans six weeks ago was the same. Everyone was very happy with their new found access to us'uns. Interesting perspective regarding their take on our Presidents that had an effect good or bad down through history. Worth an essay if I could ever get the time.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Heading to bed early. Migh show up in the wee hours if I wake up.

Nyrol!

Captain Hate

Man Tran, if we ever meet up again I'd really like to get an executive summary of that essay. I find it fascinating how regular Yourapeans regard us.

jimmyk

So Weinstein is booted out of the MPAA, but as noted by Althouse, Cosby and Polanski--and many other predators--are still in.

https://althouse.blogspot.com/2017/10/hollywoods-de-facto-governing-body.html

The MPAA could be a pretty empty place if they did a purge. Or I suppose it would be mostly female.

Fn Jackets today. :(

Florida's unis are supposed to look like.... gators. Surprise there, huh?

Wonder who RG is rooting for tonight? Will his wife make him sleep in the doghouse?

Captain Hate

Good Utah/U$C game on ABC.

Tonto

Captain -- yes, south, but almost surrounded by Acadia. Right on Somes Sound, the only fjord in the East. Eagles, foxes, and lobster boats. And since it was the off season, the humans weren't half bad, either. No TV or internet, but a couple of poke boats with holes in them. Heaven, in other words.

Well described.

If anybody is on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and looking for something to do (like if it's raining), this is a highly recommended presentation of a provincial art form which has morphed into something else:

Yes, Iggy, even my Brooklyn daughter was shocked by the intricate carvings combined with an advanced understanding of positive and negative space in a large block of wood.

There's not enough money in the world to compensate me for watching a single thing by that talentless hack propagandist, Ken Burns. Lose that haircut, dipshit; even my wife thinks you look like a mummified imbecile.
