Joe Morgan was my all time favorite ballplayer.

I love this story about him.

When he was playing for the Astros he returned to the dugout having struck out badly. A player approached him, in jest, using a bat handle as play microphone to "interview" him about what happened on that pitch. Here's the "interview."

Player: Hey Joe, you looked pretty bad on that pitch, can you tell the viewers what happened."

Morgan: (grabs the bat like it's a microphone):" I sure can tell you what happened. Do you know the difference between a curveball and a motherfucking curveball? Well, let me tell you. A curveball is a pitch you can pick up the spin on, seeing it clearly, and nail it for a hit. Now, your motherfucking curveball looks just like a fastball, you can't see the spin, and when it crosses the plate the ball drops off the table and it's a motherfucking strike three."

RIP Joe (2020). An all time great. Made the Big Red Machine go.

Apparently MAGA Tucker took issue with President Zelensky's attire last night.

According to Bow Tie Man it wasn't formal enough for him.

In other news Carlson, reporting from Appomattox Courthouse, trashed the appearance of General Grant for wearing muddy boots while that southern Gentleman Bobby Lee was resplendent in his meticulous (traitorous and losing) uniform.

Faux News reporting.

After seeing all the reports of the MAGA traitors swallowing their words, while under oath,

I can say Moonshine Eddie's Liquor Emporium and Jerky Shop has less mentions of the Fifth.

So MAGA Repukes released their own report today on the 6 January attack.

Using a past historical event it reads like this:

Dreadful failures of US Military personnel lead to the spontaneous sinking of the Pacific Fleet on December 7, 1941.

Not recommended gift idea.

A scented candle that has a note that reads
“The only gift you need is me as a husband”

That’s a big nope.
