Saturday Morning Random Thoughts…by Chuck Duboff


The beach I run every morning down in Puerto Vallarta; the Sierra Madre mountains in front, the Pacific Ocean right beside.

  • Four more sleeps until two weeks of the hot sun, beaches and babes of Puerto Vallarta.  One of my many great thrills last year while in PV:  having one of the blogs I wrote about how much I was enjoying myself down there, picked up by a PV travel blog.
  • Brian Pallister’s actions are flying under the radar because of the craziness down south.
  • Mr. Pallister: make sure to call them Filmon Friday’s…you haven’t had an original idea in your life.  Slash and burn, while you enjoy your months down in Costa Rica.
  • When people you respect and admire let you down…that hurts…a lot…you know who you are.
  • Pitchers and catchers report in three days!!!!!!!!
  • Can’t wait to watch SNL tonight…Alec Baldwin should be a rockin’.


  • There are those who choose to hide their heads in the sand about what is happening in the States; that is your prerogative…but, be forewarned, Steve Bannon has been playing out this scenario for years, and his Alt Right, white supremacist ideology, is going to result in a Holy War of unparalleled magnitude.
  • The Jets aren’t even in the same area code as the Black Hawks and Wild.
  • Patience, patience, patience…wearing thin on Jets fans
  • Watching the insanity coming out of Herr Trump’s administration on a daily basis is like an ongoing SNL or Monty Python skit.john-cleese
  • The new 60 inch, 4K Samsung TV is beyond breathtaking…watching shows in 4K (4000 pixels compared to the 1080 of High Def) it’s like they are in the room with you.
  • If not for the sports stations and the required basic cable…I wouldn’t have any cable TV…between Netflix and Crave TV…there is so much to watch while not having to endure advertising.
  • Currently binging three great series:  Bloodline, House of Cards and Scandal.
  • For those who don’t follow the minutia of politics as I do, Steve Bannon is making all the decisions in Herr Trump’s White House…and it’s right out of the Alt Right playbook.
  • My mornings in Puerto Vallarta…get up around 6:30; shower and go have an energy filled breakfast to fuel my day…the sun is rising and the temps warming up; go back to room and get changed…head down to the beach for a one hour run on the beautiful sand; mountains right in front and Pacific Ocean in my feet…back to room to switch up gear and then go and workout on weights for half an hour…and THEN…it’s…a full day of hot sun, tequila, cervesa and bikinis!!
  • When I get back it’ll be time to buy the MLB TV package for the season; every game, every day on the 60 inch, 4K TV…it’ll be like being right in the ballpark.
  • I trusted both of you…and you let me down so much
  • Tonight’s Jets game with: Carly, Laine and Ben…does not get any better!!
  • I hope everybody is enjoying their cut of the PST from 8% to 7%!!  Oh that’s right; while Pallister was enjoying two months in Costa Rica…he broke another promise. When jobs are cut and salaries slashed…I hope those who bought Pallister’s “make Manitoba great again” garbage are happy.pallister
  • Last year while in PV, I wrote this blog following a so very cool adventure running the blistering hot beaches of PV in the middle of the afternoon…lesson learned…one of my favourite pieces of writing on this blog:
  • Do not like the New England Patriots…when they are so good, why has there been the need to cheat…but, I will give Brady and Bellichek props for an amazing comeback last Sunday…that was one for the ages.
  • Pitchers and catchers report…sounds pretty good, doesn’t it Mick?

  1. Pitchers and catchers report…sounds pretty good, doesn’t it Mick?

    Love the sounds of this, because that means, baseball fans here in the Winterpeg, don’t have much longer to wait to meet and greet the 2017 edition of the Winnipeg Goldeyes come early May.
