Golf widow here once again, enjoying the dwindling days of Michigan’s golf season.
By which I mean I am doing more fall cleaning while looking forward to a nice cold Modelo and an entertaining book once my chores are done.
Lawn furniture put away? Check.
Outdoor cushions washed and dried? Check.
Fireplace prepped for winter use? Check.
A couple more chores and I can revel in quiet quaffing. I keep a couple lounge chairs on the deck through the winter to enjoy the midday sun; soon I’m going to park in one with a book and my beer and partake in the peak autumn color here.
I’m sure it’s nice out on the fairway but I don’t have to put up with trash talk from the rest of my foursome to do so, nor do I have to spring for beers for the winner.
Golf widowhood for the motherfucking win.

If you are a regular Twitter use you already know exactly what happened last night in Major League Baseball because it flooded Twitter users’ feeds.
One friend whined for hours about the Houston Astros (at Seattle Mariners). Another dropped offline because they couldn’t take anymore stress watching the New York Yankees (at Cleveland Guardians).
I’ve had periods shorter than this baseball game.

Hell, I didn’t even watch the game and I could feel that one – the Astros-Mariners’ game was over six hours long.
The Guardians didn’t win until the ninth inning, which merely made the game feel long.
In hindsight I must not follow many people in my other Twitter account in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Los Angeles, or San Diego because their presence as fans was so much less obvious in my Twitter timeline in spite of the Padres beating the Dodgers and the Phillies taking the Braves out of their series with last night’s win.
Dr. Biden caught the Phillies’ win, though.

Good for her.

I’m just not in the mood for NFL football today. I’m hanging onto the fleeting sensation of yesterday’s Big 10 conference win by Michigan State’s Spartans against Wisconsin’s Badgers.
72 yards 😮💨😮💨 @maliq_thefreak

It’s not been a good season for the Green and White up to now. Every game has been a roller coaster ride.

Hah. Funny. Manzullo doesn’t note the fourth observation by Scott Bell is that of a University of Michigan fan. U-M is still ranked in the top five in the nation.
Next week will probably be rocky around here, and a good time to go shopping because every public venue except for bars with big screen TVs will be empty while MSU meets in-state rival U-M at U-M.
MSU is expected to get the stuffing knocked out of them but the rivalry is pretty intense and not factored into the odds.

This post is called Trash Talk, not sports talk so now I’m going to take out the trash
This tweet by Maggie Haberman crystalizes what the fuck is wrong with Haberman’s journalism.
Pure regurgitation, no analysis, zero pushback on naked hate. Her subject barfed up a noxious furball she then dutifully carried from the cesspool in which he left it to the bigger pond at Twitter.
Haberman is trash, allowing herself to be used for hateful propaganda purposes.

All right, have at it, use this as an open thread. Air out your trash.
And pass me my beer.
