One of the worst kept secrets in the MSM is the revolving door between Democrat campaigns and staffs and the press, think Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos or even the venerated Tim Russett. That's why the left is so insane over CNN's hiring of former Trump Department of Justice official Sarah Isgur Flores. Not only is she … Continue reading CNN Shocked SHOCKED, California Hand outs, 300 Mil for Machado, Key Line in Weld Story: SABLE Foulke folds again in 9th vs Washington under the fedora.

After 98 days a Boston team finally wins a … Continue reading Baseball Thoughts Under the Fedora on a Snowy Day, MLB on Pats, Rules, Tebow AAA, Nothing, Deaths in the Family & Washington ’24 Still in 1st
It might be odd to put it this way but with his 6th title. As of today Tom Brady only needs to play in 3 more superbowls to appear in as many Championship games a Bill Russell and just five wins away from having as many rings as him, and if he makes it to … Continue reading Five Superbowl LIII thoughts. Brady vs Russell & Berra, Defense rules, Gostkowski comes through, Angry Liberals and Two Boston Titles this season (so far!)
One of the odd things about this Superbowl is that during the entire season it seemed that everyone on the radio in New England was positive the Patriots wouldn't get this far and I wasn't worried one bit, now that the Superbowl is a week away I find I have a bad feeling about this … Continue reading 5 Patriots Superbowl Worries
At Newsbusters there was a piece about the increase in ratings by the NFL this year in general and last week in particular as the country vainly hoped that Tom Brady would fail, which of course he didn't, but mostly about the end of the protests. This is actually not true, as a few players, … Continue reading Non Tweets Under the Fedora 1/27: What Kneelers? Journalists Seeking Jobs, Covington Consequences, Bishops Gambit and Omar & ISIS
Yesterday I suggested that President Trump should invite the Covington boys to the White House, later that day he did so. It's the smart move, the longer this story is in the news the worse the left comes off in states where they need votes and the more likely that freshman dems in the house … Continue reading Non Tweets 1-23-19 Trump Takes DaTechGuy’s Advice, Phillips at Mass, Kurt Thanks Andrew, Ichrio’s Back, Rivera & the HOF
I had to work on Sunday so I didn't get to watch Tom Brady do what Tom Brady does (and the "It's not every day your team gets to the championship game." argument doesn't work in NE these days. But when I saw during breaks that Brady kept driving down the field all I could … Continue reading Non Tweets 1/22/19 Brady IS Mongo, Bad Calls in NO, What March for Life? Covington Virtue & Sable’s back
Humphrey Bogart, 1940's/50's Democrat and arguably the greatest actor there has ever been once said "The only thing you owe the public is a good performance". If that is true then given the number of good performances we've had from Jane Curtin over the decades I reckon death wish for the GOP not withstanding I reckon … Continue reading Non Tweets Under the Fedora 1-4-18 Bogart & Curtin, Romney & Cuomo, Pelosi and Daughter, Kollab & Insurance and Brady and the Press
Blogger on the left many years ago By John Ruberry Last week in this space I discussed the problems of allowing transgender athletes to participate in women's sports, which was inspired by a since-deleted Tweet from tennis legend Martina Navratilova, "You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women," she … Continue reading What transgender athletes will do to high school sports
One might think that when Mark Trapscott used "shocking" to describe the NYT piece on the arbitrary nature on Facebook's censors he did because the real shock was the Times hitting a system primarily used to censor conservatives, but the reality is every such tyrannical system eventually eat their own and with twenty potential Democrats running … Continue reading Sixth Day of Christmas Incentives Under the Fedora Facebook, Baltimore, Pelosi, Waters, NFL Protests and Resistance “Heroes”
By John Ruberry Last month I ran in the Tinley Park Turkey Trot 5K race and finished in 15th place overall, 13th among men. That's not too bad for a dude in his 50s. While it may appear that I am gloating, stick with me here. A few days ago on Twitter, legendary tennis great … Continue reading Will people care about women’s sports if transgendered women dominate?
If there is one thing that the whole business about the Wall funding and the Shutdown this week has proved is that you never know how things will turn in when Donald Trump is involved until they actually happen. On the various sports radio networks the Boston Celtics loss to the lowly Phoenix Suns after … Continue reading Non Tweets Under the Fedora 12-22-22. The Wall, Celtics, Josh Gordon, Herr Relotius and the Silence of Feminists
I was all ready to run my final piece on the endgame of the left post election when word came at work that the Red Sox had won game five and the world series. So in honor of the unity expressed in this tweet... For the next few days there are no liberals, or conservatives … Continue reading Five Red Sox World Series Thoughts
By John Ruberry Four months ago in this space I wrote this entry: Horrible season for White Sox may portend bright future. Okay, the situation has improved somewhat since May, when the South Siders were on pace to lose a club-record 117 games, which would be just short of the modern day record for futility, … Continue reading Chicago White Sox 2018 season not as horrible as once feared
Yesterday my wife and I visited Sun Trust park and watched the Red Sox, despite a shaky (but scoreless) performance from Nathan Evoaldi, take game one of their 3 game set with the Atlanta Braves 8-2. The game was much closer than the score would indicate and it wasn't until the Sox added two in … Continue reading Sports: The MLB Playoff Race Continues the NFL Kaepernick Season Opens
