THE HALL OF FAME GAME was supposed to be played last Sunday in Canton Ohio, but the “wrong paint” was used on the field. The painted areas were either rock hard or like stepping on tar. Maintenance guys tried to remove the paint, but it was still unplayable and the game was canceled out of caution, only the third cancellation in the past 20 years, and a first for using the wrong paint.
Heads no doubt rolled over this debacle. The guy responsible for buying the wrong paint has a job right up the road in Cleveland…
LILLY KING doesn’t much like Russian cheater Yulia Efimova. During qualifying, when Efimova raised her finger signaling she was #1, Lilly wagged her finger back and forth in disgust to let the cheater know – no you are not number 1.
On Monday King threw some shade all over the reining World Champion and known cheater Efimova by winning the Breast Stroke in convincing fashion. Congrats Lilly.
HOPE SOLO, the US Soccer Keeper made a comment joked about Zika right before the first match. The Brazilians didn’t like it. Brazilians don’t like to be reminded that Rio dumps it’s saw human poop and garbage into it’s Bay, or that Gangs control about a 1/5 of Rio, or that their president was impeached, or their economy is in shambles… or Zika mosquitos are dive-bombing the Games.
So Brazil’s revenge? During the Americans first match, Brazilian Hecklers Yelled “ZIKA, ZIKA” at Hope Solo while she was in goal. I frankly don’t get the chant. Why they think that that might effect her play is beyond me. It’s not creative, or original. If Solo had mocked Rio’s open sewage spewing into the Bay, would Brazilians have thought themselves clever chanting “Shit in the Bay… Shit in the Bay?”.
TODAY IS OPENING CEREMONIES DAY. And today is the day for the Olympic Flame Cauldron Reveal. Rio’s Flame with buck tradition with the flame, not at the Track Stadium rather in Downtown Rio.
Rio was supposed to be the Games to push environmental activism. Rio’s medals are made of recycled metals. The ribbons are made from recycled plastic. The irony is, of course, the Games are an environmental poopy mess of the water venues full of garbage with raw sewage spewing into the Bay.
The world doesn’t know what the Cauldron will look like – yet. I envision a giant Toilet and the eternal gas being, Methane.
The Raw Sewage Games officially start tomorrow. What’s the over/under for the first athlete to win a Gold Medal and promptly have it stolen by Rio Criminals.
1/5 of the population of the City – living in squaller. Rampant corruption. Pull up a chair and get the popcorn.
THE RIO OLYMPICS will be a “success”, if its not a total disaster. Brazil is a stinky pile of poop. The President has been impeached, the economy is in a shambles, ISIS is threatening to attack, the Rio Gangs are back in power and the Army can’t control them. Athletes arriving in Rio have found their living accommodations to be 3rd world status, with waste coming out of plumbing, open and exposed electrical lines and broken… everything. ZIKA mosquitos are waiting for tasty arms and legs. Open sewage draining into the bay. Some delegations members have already been robbed, and the Games haven’t even started.
Start the Conga line its A RIO PARTY!
KEN ROSENTHAL is a pretty decent, solid baseball reporter for Fox Sports. He tweeted on the last day of the Trade Deadline that Yasiel Puig had been told of his demotion, and that Puig had thrown a fit and stormed off. Seems plausible, but it wasn’t true. Puig wasn’t even at the stadium – so the source, for lack of a better phrase was “full of shit”. I published a Yasiel Cartoon of a Puig Bobblehead with the head off the spring, and the above cartoon the next day… except this isn’t the cartoon I published first. I tweeted out a cartoon mocking Rosenthal (actually mocking Trumps lack of common sense and fact checking) with a spelling error.
I fixed it, by deleting the first one, and putting this one up. God’s punishment methinks. I’ve been kinda mean lately… but isn’t that what cartoonists do?
DRAYMOND GREEN published a photo of his “equipment” on social media. It was “instantly” deleted but that just means he deleted it and the rest of the world was sharing his photo of the jolly Green Johnson. Green said he pushed the wrong button… then said, he was hacked. What’s missing from that ultimately silly justification is — why would any man in public life (really anyone with any self-respect) take a photo of their stuff for distribution to the fairer sex?
