The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • I'm back from one of my football trips where I got to see Baylor at Duke (we are 0-3!) and the Buffalo Bills at the North Carolina Panther (no touchdowns scored!) We moved and moved a lot on this trip. Mrs. LL was a tremendous trooper. 
  • She fully understood, "It's not about getting to where we are going, it's about the journey." We took our time, changed plans at the drop of a hat when needed, and took in every single moment. 
  • Hot opinion: Duke University is the most beautiful campus I've ever seen (and I've seen many), and it is not even close.
  • Downtown Charlotte may be one of the best cities I've ever seen. They are big on modern architecture. 
  • I had no idea the beaches in the Carolinas were that beautiful. (Although Mrs. LL and I eating breakfast on it almost was a re-creation of The Birds. It was truly an "Oh, my!" experience.)
  • Trump had a big weekend. He called the leader of North Korea "Rocket Man", retweeted a video of him hitting Hillary with a golf ball, and got mad at ESPN. Certainly he is a stable man, right? 
  • I'm stunned Texas almost beat USC. It's oddly good to me that OU and Texas are looking like they are back as leaders in the Big 12.  Throw in that Tech looking good, and TCU and Oklahoma State looking fantastic, Baylor may not win a game. I feel like I'm going back in time.
  • Zeke Elliott giving up on the play after the interception tells you everything you need to know about the guy. (As if you didn't already know.) He will be with the Cowboys for this year and two more when his contract ends. Then he is gone. Running backs are a dime a dozen.
  • BagOfNothing made a reference to a "two below" pickup football game. I really wonder if anyone understands the reference anymore. One anywhere. Two anywhere. One below. Two below.
  • I wonder if someone once bought them a meal at Denny's when they were seen in uniform?
  • Old school: Kevin Von Erich vs. The Bridgeport Bulls back in the day. Anyone know the Bull players?
  • Best screenshot of the football weekend when Florida scored on a Hail Mary at the end of the game against Tennessee.
  • "Improper teacher-student relationship cases in Texas soar."

Funny story about the Von Erichs and HS Football....

I grew up in Springtown and we used to play Lake Dallas regularly. I have a friend who, during one game in Lake Dallas, got on the Lake Dallas side. He started fighting with some Lake Dallas kids and then someone grabbed him on the shoulder to pull him out.

He turned around and realized that it was Fritz Von Erich who had grabbed him. Needless to say, he stopped!

Barry and Trump tweet and post the same sort of things and Barry says that Trump is crazy.

Just imagine, BG, if in all of your trips to various parts of the country, with wildly varying cultures, you actually cared about eating someplace besides Applebee's.

You're missing out.

Barry's contempt for the U.S. Military over powered his leftist racism today.

I was at that game and hung out with Mike for most of it. Didn't know who he was other that a cool kid that was fun to be around. Then his Dad came to tell him it was time to go. Truly a Hoooooly shit moment.

Duke is indeed the most beautiful campus I've ever seen. Impressive doesn't even begin to describe it.

C'mon, 909, you can do better than that. If you're trying to hook the big fish, you gotta put your back into it, show some effort. Now, try it again, only this time with real commitment. The rest of the class wants to see what you have to offer.

RE: Bport football players

From left to right, they are 33, 60 and 12.

You're welcome.

LOL, did Wordkyle just call himself a big fish, and imply that he wasn't trolled, while responding to said trolling?

You know who's living rent free in Wordkyle's head?

Hey Skippy,Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

I remember when Obama first became president, and you whined and cried that he was getting ragged on too much, and that everyone just needed to give him a year or two before judging him.

Why don't you give Trump that same benefit?

He was getting slammed by you before he took office.

Thumbs up for treating him fairly!

The Bridgeport Bulls will be 0-10 this year.

Why would I buy any of the three their breakfast at Denny's? I'm a liberal weenie and don't appreciate the military and people that serve and I sure wouldn't buy them a breakfast because I'm a racer.

Barry really isn't a leftist. He just allows anonymous comments. Thanks.

9:54 - He's proved he's unstable because he's already fired Acting Atty General Yates, U.S. Attorney, Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, FBI Director James B. Comey, Flynn, Spicer, The Mooch, & White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon

He's called Sessions an idiot and threatened to fire him. You need to read the news, not watch it on Fox, but read some independent news like Al Jazeera and BBC.

10:02 - because Drumpf is a vile human being who obviously only cares about promoting himself. He's also a pussy grabber, racist (Mexicans are drug dealers and rapists, white supremacists are people too, revoking DACA {they're kids who were brought here not on their own accord and its proven they are contributing to society because they have to prove they went to college, have a job, etc}), xenophobe, misogynist, orange haired buffoon.

Notre Dame is a beautiful campus. Check it out; but I've never been to Duke.

That RTG on the right is a dude!

If you are looking for a campus with the best natural (not architectural) beauty, look on East Hill in Ithaca, NY, at the campus of Cornell. It is Gorges!

Who is going to wear out first; Skippy or Anon 9:54?

Anonymous said...

10:47 Stay Woke!! Has Trump fired Sessions yet like Skippy said he would? You're right. I'm gonna start watching Al Jazeera and BBC so I can see how orange haired Trump is.

I travel heavily with work and am in and out of airports often. I encounter soldiers of all races in uniform on a frequent basis. I always thank them, and if I'm at a restaurant I always offer to pick up the tab.

I remember the year B'port beat Lake Dallas and K. Atkinson (Von Erich) came storming into our locker room with a 2x4 going to take us all on. And Bridgeport's #10 was ready to accommodate him.

BagOfNothing touch football references. Player is down either one or two hands above or below the waist, depending on the rules set at the start of the game.

How about the TCU Horned Frogs "Hail Mary" at the end of the first half? I was there and it was amazing! I would love to have seen the look on an SMU fan's face! If you want to the play go to FB and TCU Horn Frog Nation!
