News RoundUp – Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanagh, Jason Garrett and Amber Guyger

I guess it is time for a news Roundup.

Hurricane Florence just simply devastated North and South Carolina. Here, you can give to hurricane relief. I did.

So, 27 years ago, George HW Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to replace the irreplaceable Thurgood Marshall. Basically, he sailed through the hearings. Then, there were some allegations of sexual harassment. These allegations were brought by Anita Hill. They both worked at the Department of Education and the EEOC. Anita Hill reported to Clarence Thomas. Reportedly, Clarence Thomas had asked her out several times and she refused his advances. He graphically described the details of his anatomy to her. The hearings, the back-and-forth between Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, was riveting television. In the end, the Senate decided to ignore Anita Hill and support Clarence Thomas.

Now we have Brett Kavanagh versus Christine Blasey Ford. Unlike 27 years ago, Sen. Chuck Grassley has decided there will be no FBI investigation. There are several issues to discuss here. First, the event occurred 30 years ago. Should Kavanagh be accountable for his actions when he was a teenager? Secondly, according to Christine Blasey Ford, there was 3rd person in the room. Yet, for some reason, the Senate Judiciary Committee does not want to hear from that third person. Why? In order to undermine Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony, Brett Kavanagh does an interview with Fox News with his wife at his side. We have seen this look before. This gives Kavanagh the ability to look sympathetic and also to “stand firm” against those who are trying to tear down his good name. Now, a woman from Kavanagh’s college days says that he exposed himself to her while he was drunk at a Yale party. I think that Christine Blasey Ford should be heard. She should be respected. She is going to stand up on Thursday and say that bad, pain shit in her past has happened to her and Kavanagh was responsible for the bad stuff. Unfortunately, Senate republicans don’t care. This is directly from the Trump playbook. Never back down. Never admit that you are wrong. Never. Ever. No matter what. The whole thing makes me want to vomit. Are you going to believe women or not? Are you going to investigate or put on a show?

Amber Guyger is … was a Dallas Police officer who, according to her story, went into the wrong apartment, thought it was her apartment, saw the man in the apartment who was not supposed to be in “her apartment” and shot him dead. The story is hard to believe. You happen to go into an apartment one story above yours. How do you get into that apartment? You do not have the key to that apartment. Your key goes to the apartment that is one story below. Do you just open the door? And, when you open the door, do not you recognize that none of the stuff in the apartment is yours? How is there no discussion? How do you simply just open fire and kill a man?!?!? The whole incident is bizarre. Well the Dallas Police Department just fired Amber. My question to you is, if Amber was a man, would she still be on the police department now? I think the answer is yes.

To me, it is not that the Dallas Cowboys are losing. The problem is they are really not competitive. Dak Prescott who was accurate two years ago, simply is not that guy anymore. Whether it is the receivers or different coverage, it does not matter. Right now, he looks like one of the most wildly inaccurate quarterbacks have ever seen. I do not understand how you going to the season without having a number one wide receiver. We do not have one tight end that Dak can depend on getting open. Yes, the Dallas defense is better. Yet the defense is predicated on a dominating office. Dallas is not that. We cannot consistently run the ball. We cannot consistently throw the ball. We can consistently punt the ball which, by the way, is not how you win football games. Now, the Dallas media is up in arms and is calling for Jason Garrett to be fired. Why? Jerry Jones is the owner. Jason Garrett is doing exactly what Jerry Jones wanted him to do. Jason Garrett cannot do anything without Jerry’s approval. This is a fact. Firing Jason Garrett will just bring in some other knucklehead who will be unable to make decisions without Jerry’s approval. Jerry Jones is the problem. Until were able to fix the problem, there is no reason piddling around with fake fixes like firing Jason Garrett.

Tiger Wins!!!!! I know if you are a Tiger hater, then please look away. I’m not. I think that the guy can really play golf. That’s all. He can play!

Letter to Tiger Woods

Dear Tiger,

tiger at pgaI’m not sure if you watching the PGA championship. If you’re not, you should be. Rory McIlroy is stumbling. Rickie Fowler’s leading. He’s looking very solid. Henrik Stenson is tied for the lead with Phil Mickelson making a charge. What’s missing? You, Tiger Woods. You are missing.

I have no idea what this latest injury is or how long it’ll take for you to recover but if you cannot play Tiger Woods golf then you shouldn’t return. There is no golf fan who want to see Tiger Woods put up a pair 74’s and then miss the cut. We want to see Tiger Woods contending on Sundays. We want to see Tiger Woods in the mix. Golf is special when Tiger Woods is in the mix.

I’m just saying.

Errington

PS. What a spectacular PGA!!!! Congratulations to the #1 player in the world – Rory McIlroy who looked like he didn’t have his best stuff yet still found a way to win.

Sergio versus Tiger

Sergio Garcia

As many of you who follow my blog know, I picked up golf about three years ago. Prior to picking up a club, I called golf a stupid game which I really didn’t understand. Now that I’ve taken lessons and have played, it is still a stupid game which I really don’t understand, but I find enjoyable. 🙂 In golf, just like in many other sports, we look for something more. We look for something exciting. We look for something titillating. We couldn’t get enough of the Tiger Woods scandal. This brings me to two weeks ago at the Players Championship. Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia had words. Tiger Woods, who was some 50 yards away from Sergio, pulled a club out of his bag and that caused the gallery to gasp. This noise occurred right in the middle of Sergio’s backswing. The golf ball sliced to the left off into the woods (to be honest, that golf shot looked very similar to many of mine, except I don’t quite get that kind of distance). This simple incident caused the kind of petty back-and-forth that we regularly see in stupidly contrived reality shows like Survivor.

This brings us to the latest in the Tiger Woods/Sergio Garcia saga. Sergio Garcia was at a European tour awards dinner in London when he was asked by a reporter whether he would ever invite Tiger Woods over for dinner (I’m paraphrasing). Sergio Garcia said, “We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.” Fried chicken? Really? You do not have to be a linguistic expert to understand that this is a problem. Tiger Woods, who really has no love for Sergio Garcia and who has had more than his own share of media fiascoes, was happy to take the high road and watch Sergio cause his own implosion. Tiger Woods stated through his Twitter account, “The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate. I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made. The Players ended nearly two weeks ago and it’s long past time to move on and talk about golf.” (more…)
