Saturday morning random thoughts…by Chuck Duboff

  • Oklahoma workers call Martin Luther King Day, “nigger day”…Donald Trump’s AmeriKKKa:      http://www.okayplayer.com/news/oklahoma-warner-workers-martin-luther-king-day-n-word-day.html
  • Try and imagine Louis Riel Day being referred to as “half breed day!”  How would you react?
  • Good effort by the Jets last night…in that last minute Laine was robbed and Wheeler hit the post.  You’re not going to win every game…boys gotta come back tonight in Minnesota with a full 60 minute effort.
  • January temps in the -40’s…the older I get, the more I hate winter…grrrrr.
  • Winnipeg Goldeyes celebrating their 25 anniversary!!  I remember in 1994 when Sam Katz announced he had acquired a franchise in the Northern League and that we’d be playing out of Winnipeg Stadium…seems like just minutes ago!!

     

  • The ugly racism spewed by Herr Trump, the attacks on Muslims, Blacks, Jews, Latinos…so reminiscent of 1930’s Germany.  You tell a lie enough times and people will start to believe you.  Far too many believe that couldn’t happen again…”those who don’t learn from the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.”
  • Herr Trump pays off Porn Stars more than $100,000 during the election to keep quiet.
  • Kids ask their parents: “Why does the President say shithole, grab pussies”?
  • The disgusting silence of the Republican Party makes them just as complicit as Donald Trump in this horrible period of time which Americans are experiencing.
  • If Johnny Manziel has his act together and truly wants to play football…he could do great things for the CFL…from ticket sales to jerseys to TV viewers in both Canada and the States.  Hopefully he knows there aren’t going to be any more chances…he should have a sit down with Flutie, Moon, Garcia and so many others who have gone on to great careers in both the CFL and NFLmanziel_johnny1280-1040x572
  • Not that I’m counting…but just 32 more days until the beautiful, hot and sunny beaches of Puerto Vallarta.  If not for our Jets…I’d probably be spending my winters down in the hot climates.
  • A young man who immigrated from Ghana…a firefighter…just a couple of weeks ago…went in to a fire and saved four lives, but sadly, lost his own.  I would suggest this young man from the “shithole” country of Ghana has more class and dignity than that orange haired racist pig does.   Watch this video to understand the emotion of what is going on in the states:

  • Been listening to Tony Bennett a lot lately…so smooth and classy.  “we should treat everybody as equals…this would be a much happier more peaceful world.”Tony_Bennett_in_2003.jpg
  • Just about time to start counting the days until the baseball season will be upon us.  What I do know is that pitchers and catchers report to training camp, the same day that I leave for Puerto Vallarta…so spring training will be starting in 32 days baseball fans….

    Anytime the Jets lose two in a row there is concern…however, I’d suggest the Jets are exhausted and desperately need this 5 day break; hopefully Lowry and Tanev will be back and we will also be a week closer to Scheifele’s return…I’m sure the players, coaches, whole organization and fans can’t wait for that ten game homestand in February.
