COVID-19 has finally found the NFL as Sunday’s game between Tennessee and Pittsburgh has been postponed until “later in the season.” Week #18???

Did you get your flu shot yet? Seriously, get one!

I actually got two flu shots. I went with bourbon and tequila.

The Jets lost again.

Reveal party gone wrong. 33-year old Hayley Sexton had painted the nursery pink, chosen the name Isabella and bought two Moses baskets, blankets and onesies in girl hue. She then gave birth to a baby boy. DOH!

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The love child of former Belgian King Albert II on Thursday won a seven-year-long battle over her loyal rights and can now officially call herself a princess. She is now entitled to the same royal titles and privileges as her father’s three other children.

Doc Rivers was fired by the LA Clippers and then hired as head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Sounds like a promotion to me.

Quote for the week: “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell

Headline of the week: “Vietnam police confiscate 345,000 used condoms that were washed and sold as new”

Nothing new in the NBA. I’m rooting against the Lakers, much like rooting against the Yankees. Hater… me.

To the person who stole my glasses. I will find you, I have contacts.

In case you missed it, the Houston Astros became the first MLB team ever to win a playoff after making the playoffs with a losing record – 29-31.  They beat the Minnesota Twins and went on to sweep them two games to none. The Twinkies have now lost an MLB record  18 playoff games in a row.

Speaking of the Oakland A’s, they won their first playoff series in 14 years. (14 years?! That’s a lot???)

During his September 24, 1960 campaign stop in Sullivan, Illinois, then vice-president Richard Nixon stopped to eat a barbeque buffalo sandwich at a related cookout. He barely finished the sandwich before getting up to make a speech. Then 14-year old Steve Jenne pounced, took the half-eaten sandwich and still has it today, 60 years later. (No one, and I mean no one, can make that shit up.)

No sense in sitting there hating everyone
No man’s an island and his castle isn’t home
The nest is full of nothing when the bird has flown”

– Jethro Tull
