You know the old saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Of course you know it. We all learned it at our grandmother’s knee. Our mothers were way too busy gossiping to teach us that one.
I like the alternative sometimes. Alice Roosevelt Longworth was famous for saying: “if you don’t have anything nice to say about anyone, come, sit by me.” So deliciously 7th grade.
And that’s where I’m going today. Oh, I’m not going to say anything bad about our Giants, but I will trash the rest of the heap.
Let’s start with the Dodgers. They just posted a four-game losing skid. About damn time. This is more like the Boys in Blue we love to hate. 91 wins so far. That’s just annoying. And overkill. So Hollywood.
How do you like the Phillies? I keep thanking them for covering the floor—after all, they’re the only thing standing between the Giants and rock bottom. Let’s hear it for the City of Brotherly Love.
And how about Texas looking out for their neighbors the Astros? They couldn’t let the Astros host the series at Arlington? I don’t know if you heard, but Houston is seriously underwater right now. Instead of letting Houston play host at their home field, the Rangers turned them down because of…I don’t know what. All I heard was blah, blah, blah. As if Houston didn’t have enough to worry about, they now have to host the series at Tropicana Field.
I think that’s about all the negativity I can muster for now. Check back with me later. I might have more. You never know!
