Packers and Chiefs are my predictions for the Super Bowl, with Andy Reid getting his first SB win. OL, I'm sure you are going to point out that my prediction of the Saints in the SB was a dud. :-) However, if the Chiefs prevail, one of my predictions for 2020 will have been proven correct!

Thomas Collins

Was I seeing the Chiefs crowd doing the tomahawk chop on Sunday? Someone tell The Squad so they can pressure San Fran Nan to support a House resolution condemning Chiefs fans!

Captain Hate

A female Iranian athlete in the Netherlands just defected, also denouncing the Regime. She said she had wanted to for a long time, that all women in Iran hated the regime, but after the killing of all of the Iranians on the jetliner, she had to.

This looks like the beginning of a preference cascade. People on the edge are jumping. Does Iran have anyone as strong as Suleimani who can supply enough force to stop the protests?

Or is the last days of Ceaucescu, replayed?

Let the refugee floodgates open!

My guess is most of the Iranians want to stay there if the repression goes bye bye. In fact I'd expect some past refugees might want to return.

Barr talked a good story during the honeymoon, but so far he hasn't really made any meaningful difference.

I am more inclined to believe that the refugees will occupy portions of US cities and not assimilate to American culture in any way, shape, or form.

Well, crap. Should have refreshed.


I’m confused by all this football talk. You see, I was Varsity at AZ State for three years when Frank Kush was kicking ass. But I only saw those big dudes at the annual banquets. They kept telling me to go under the stadium on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and make .22 diameter holes in paper with 1mm dots arranged in geometric patterns. And we were all very polite and didn’t encourage any bodily contact, especially with the lethal weapons involved.

It can't be a real moment without a massive Purge, which TK stated hasn't happened.

We're seeing it already. If they were assimilating at all, we wouldn't have folks like Ilhan Omar in Congress right now.

Jack is Back!

Continuing from last thread:

Rocco,

The Hogs and when they ran their trademark “counter-trey,” Joe did pull. The only Hogs to be in all 3 super bowl wins were Bostic, Grimm, Jacoby, and Don Warren. May, Ed Simmons,and McKenzie 2 of them.

The Skins have never been the same.

Theo

It’s a bit hard to tell, but overall I do not read the data as supporting the notion that Bernie is “surging.” He seems to be basically where he has been all along in terms of support, maybe a bit of an uptick. Warren’s stock really fell last fall but seems to have stabilized. Mayor Pete has been on a decline for a while. Biden is, if anything, down a bit of very late.

Right now the surging Dem candidate seems to be “None of the Above.”

D

I have full confidence in AG Barr.
Ever since he called out the Obama administration for spying on the Trump campaign and illegally abusing the FISA court I am in his corner.
Huber was never one of us.
The guy investigating the FISA Court is an Obama flunky.
More cover-up from the powers that be.
Love that Cheryl Atkisson is calling out Rosenstein, further proving the opinion that Rocco and I have had of him.
Sometimes in my opinions I trust my gut.
My gut tells me at the absolute core, Roberts and Rosenstein are not die hard Trump fans.

Jack is Back!

The female Iranian who defected was the only Iranian to earn a medal at the last Olympics: A bronze in Tae-kwan-do. Good looking gal.

D

Theo:
Hillary stole the Iowa caucuses from Bernie in 2016.
Coin flipping was deciding some of the precincts and rigged to favor Hillary.
His supporters are surging back and demand justice this time.
Butyigieg is a flash in the pan.
Warren is really fading and is now going on s tirade against Bernie people because she is losing.

D

I am interested in how impartial Roberts will be in the Senate trial.
I will be watching him closely.

Captain Hate

Can you imagine any of our MSMers ever doing something like that?

Taibbi and Greenwald have refused to lie anymore. Sharyl Attkisson refused to play along as did Catherine Herridge, Lara Logan and Brit Hume. The F Chucks and Georgie the Gerbils are planted propagandists who will never change; the question is will the Chris Wallace types ever change.

D

I believe it will be San Francisco and the Titans in the Super Bowl.

Jack is Back!

Every Iranian, whether a recent immigrant or 2 or 3 generation Iranian-American, I ever knew assimilated. Granted 90% of them were professionals like medicos, engineers, computer scientist, etc. I don't know of any Iranian or Persian conclaves separate from the general population. I could be wrong but even in London they assimilated at least while I lived there.

Captain Hate

I agree with Jack on Iranians, keeping in mind that most of them were fleeing the current regime. Anyone leaving now would be just the opposite and hopefully DJT's people would have proper vetting procedures in place.

Theo

D —

I agree with each of your points. I don’t think, however, that the data supports a strong Bernie “surge.” He is nonetheless in second place among Dems at the moment.

It could be a train wreck for the Dems. If things stay on course, Warren and Pete could be gone after NH. That would make the race between Joe and Bernie — two very old white guys — plus whatever old white male billionaires want to keep spending their kid’s’ inheritance.

Joe should win that contest I guess but eventually they will wake up to the indisputable fact that he is Joe Biden.

The role of Chief Justice in a presidential impeachment trial is almost entirely ceremonial. Any “rulings” that he makes can be overturned by a vote of a majority of the Senators present. Rehnquist had no impact whatsoever on the Clinton impeachment and I think the same will be true wrt Roberts and Trump.

Whew boy, just caught up.

Spent the weekend at our first ever volleyball tournament in Rochester. THAT was an eye opener. Whose kid played volleyball here? Was it Bubaroni or Gentlejim? I can't remember. Anyway, our talented guitar player is not so talented on the court, but she had a good time and has a great coach willing to play the less talented, but more dedicated (the kids who show up at every practice) even knowing the wrath of certain parents. It was a interesting weekend.

They played at this place called the Pinnacle Sports Complex, and their ability to flip the areas from volleyball to basketball, soccer to baseball, and whatever else is required was impressive. I found a soulmate who, like me, was analyzing the logistics of switching the spaces to fit the need. After four games, it's not as much fun to watch. Maybe I'm just a bad sport parent.

It is very very hard to get out of Iran if you want to defect. You can't just say it and do it, or most of the country would be gone.

CH @ 12:19

Sundance has been the subject of much ridicule on Twitter for his belief that AG Barr is a member of the Deep State Swamp and thus an enemy of Trump.

It started awhile back but ramped up in intensity when the Horowitz report was released. When the Horowitz report did not accuse [he who can not be named] of any wrongdoing Sundance doubled down and asserted that was confirmation AG Barr was a member of the Deep State Swamp and that the Horowitz report was a coverup to protect[he who can not be named].

Don’t we limit the number of Iranians allowed entry into the US?

Robin, Tiger Beat Pompom Girl Team Member

Mary Rose, did they have the teams not competing during a round officiate? That seemed to cause the most trouble at keeping to the schedule. The U14's haven't played enough to really understand the scoring, which lead to the ref climbing off his/her perch to figure out what was happening numerous times. It worked better when the coach of the officiating group hung out to help.

Volleyball is a great sport - I love to watch....just maybe not five games in a day.

It may be just that I'm in a college town, but the Iranians I've met are wonderfully smart, lively, and enthusiastic community members. Also quite entrepreneurial - creating businesses and jobs.

Thanks JiB, The Hogs, what a nickname for those guys eh?

But when I think about guards, that Lombardi Sweep is what comes to my mind with Kramer leading the way. This vid was made before he made it to the HoF but there's some great footage of him blocking. Notice how low he stayed on that play described as the best block ever. That's how all O linemen blocked back then, they stayed low and drove their opponent back. Today they stand up and dance with each other.

Robin - My daughter also played high school volleyball. My cousin told me during that time to try to embrace and enjoy the season. It will be over "in the blink of an eye" and you will forget the missed meals, smelly uniforms, angst about this and that. You will remember the joy of winning, the after-game trips to get burgers, and mostly the talks in the car as you drive for miles and miles. I found that all to be true.
