Are You Ready for Some Football?

Neither am I. It’s noon as I’m writing this and my team’s game has just started. All anybody has talked about the last two days is Trump commenting somebody should fire these overpaid thugs, and of course the entire left has jumped all over him. It started with Colon Crappernuts, who staged his own little protest and, like the sheep they are, the rest of the homeys have followed. The billionaire owners have either sided with the players or are too weak kneed to speak out.

    Woman Goes On Rant Over Veteran’s Service Dog In Restaurant

    It’s probably a good thing service animals are trained to prepare for every situation, because one woman put one dog to the test.


    • Wow I haven’t seen someone go off in a restaurant like that … that wasn’t in a Chucky Cheese’s! Did you notice the moment the guy with the dog gave a sympathetic touch to screaming Mimi’s boyfriend?

      Reminds me of a classic scene in the animated series Boondocks, contrasting potentially explosive encounters and certain cultural differences in handling them. I am linking not imbedding for this family-friendly (sort-of) blog – NSFW for language and non-PC stuff, but funny.
