Having watched Rubio speak just now I ask you to remember he is a lawyer. Think about that.
Too many people are misinterpreting this as some sort of compliment.
Sen. Rubio briefly practiced real estate law while grasping for a political job. President Nixon made his living as an attorney for over a dozen years in all, during which he appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court. - RZ

Rubio, looking like a bloated corpse on Newsmax
“They made him up very well.”

“So lifelike.”

“Yes, barely a sign of torches or swords.”
“Sir, according to your wife’s testimony, when visiting your apartment the children are quote ‘forced to sleep in drawers’ and quote ‘fall aseep to records by Swedish House Mafia.’ Is that correct?” Rubio on Newsmax, still looking like a bloated corpse

Blondes, they say, photograph better than brunettes. That true or not?
You are a blonde, aren’t you? Redhead?
Have you got an extra camera in case the lights go out?

J.R. Richard has died. I’m sorry to hear it. When he was young, before the stroke, he was absolutely the equal of Nolan Ryan. Maybe surpassed him. When Ryan and Richard pitched on successive days you can’t imagine the despair among professional ballplayers.
As Richard began to show warning signs of the stroke he was accused of malingering and felt he had to power through. He did, and collapsed on the field. This is because he was black. That mustn’t be forgotten.
The team’s treatment of him through his illness and subsequent homelessness is one of the worst abominations in baseball. That he was able to battle back and make peace with the team, become a minister for baseball as well as a man of God, is a testament to who J.R. Richard was.

As I never tire of repeating:

- Ryan used that move to brand recalcitrant cows

- At 5-6 seconds you see Ventura's soul leave his body

- When Ventura managed the Rangers played it before White Sox games but Ryan asked them to stop
Ryan went 7; 5 K, 3 H, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 ER.
I would only add the camera angle loses that Ryan doesn't flinch at all. There is no surprise, no words, no appeal. He drops his glove and is ready to go.

If Houston's title is allegedly in question, so is theirs, and they want to another to put it down.
A short season and a tournament-style playoff is its own thing entirely. I don't want to hear it.
I don't say Los Angeles wasn't the best team last season. I say last season is anomalous across the board.

He is calm, witty, and he knows his baseball. He’s absolutely himself. You can’t teach that. If they don’t throw money at a young black Phillies fan who’s a natural broadcaster, they’re nuts.
The kid's name is Josh Scott. He is there because he and his father, huge Phillies fans, caught a Freddie Freeman home run in Atlanta and gave the ball to a Braves fan. They live in North Carolina. But the Phillies really ought to work something out.
Not in a novelty way. I'm serious. The kid talks baseball better than anyone in the television booth.
