Empty suits, soccer girls, etc

Posted by vapor5 on July 23, 2011 at 7:03 AM

I'm watching the NFL & NBA lockouts and the politicos in DC and wondering are any of these folks earning their big paychecks. Yes, I realize that some of these issues are complex and can be emotional, but they ain't rocket science. Again, I needed to add DC to the opening sentence, but I'm not offering or soliciting political viewpoints.

 

The NBA is on a suicide mission. Both side better wake up quickly.

Of course, the Dodgers/MLB fiasco should be included in the empty suits big frame.

 

Belated cheers for the USA soccer girls for a nice run. I enjoyed the video of Solo and Wambach on David Letterman trying to shoot soccer balls into the open side doors of slowly moving mini-vans.


Are any of the posters here not  dealing with 100 degrees plus temps?

I live in an area that usually hits the 90s in early June and stays that way all summer. July and August are usually really hot--somewhere in the high 90s/ low 100s. This has been a messed up year because we've had maybe 2 days in the low 90s ALL SUMMER . It was 82 yesterday. We've even had a little rain which is unheard of. I'm not bragging . It's just mighty strange, especially give what the rest of the country has dealt with this year.

It's difficult to feel sorry for any of the parties involved in the lockouts. No one wants to see millionaires arm wrestle over more money . It's especially distasteful with things so hard on so many right now.

It was so hot in DC this week that the politicians took their hands out of OUR pockets to fan themselves.......ba dump bump (not for long though, mind you).

I agree the NBA is on a suicide mission, it's been on one (already worked for me). Like Portland, I'm a trailblazer. Others are sure to follow my lead :)

Send the Dodgers packing.

Humidor continues here in SE Mich. Cigars are keeping very well, people and animals not so much. Squirrels are handling their nuts with pot holders. Back to the pool before the storms roll in.

Almost forgot: props to Blyleven , Alomar, and Gillick for making the HoF. Gillick (GM) and Alomar were key figures in the last decent seasons in the late 1990's for the O's.

Don't care much for Robby Alomar's antics, but a lot of a-holes are great athletes.
