Crowd Went Wild

Fox1 Sports’ The Crowd Goes Wild from a few years ago at Chelsea Piers studio. Today, Regis Philbin at 86 the former Playboy mansion and Mar-A-Lago hangout bff of “The Trumpster” as he called him, is low profile in L.A. Journalist Jason Gay still has a great sports column in the Wall Street Journal. Trevor Pryce. Don’t know. Michael Kosta is killing it with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s Daily Show. Georgie Thompson married Sir Ben Ainslie, UK olympic sailing champ, and had a baby girl. Katie Nolan went to ESPN and is making seven figures there.

Miss them together on that show.

Derby Fire

2018 Kentucky Derby. For no particular reason going with fire this year:

Win – Bolt d’Oro
Place – Firenze Fire
Show – Flameaway

What do we hear from the Hamptons & Westchester contingents? Already wore my fascinator to the Central Park Conservancy luncheon. So hatless today.

Still Standing

It’s that time of year again. President Obama’s Final Four pits North Carolina against No. 1 seed Virginia and No. 1 Villanova against No. 3 Michigan State. If the former president has his way, Michigan State topples Virginia in the championship game. Too safe. My picks are Gonzaga, Virginia, Michigan State, Purdue. Virginia wins.

Since my soaps are pre-empted for the tournament today and tomorrow, will watch Tiger at Bay Hill. He is currently even after 2.

And. Who will be left standing in the White House when the final teams meet? Ivanka. Melania. Kellyanne. Sarah. With Carrie Mathison as head of CIA. Et tu brute?

Board Games

Boring Olympic Games. Pretty much. Aside from a triple axle and the hilarious Schitt’s Creek sibling-esque duo of Johnny & Tara in figure skating. Not exhilarating. The only USA gold medals are in snowboarding so far. Two of the three 17-year olds. That’s cool.

Meanwhile. Like the game of Risk. Pence promises diplomatic potential with Kim Jong Un. Or his sister. As Israel places tokens all over the map from Syria to Iran. Back at home. Congress is still playing two-dimensional checkers. Chess anyone?

More Yellin’

Janet Yellin left the Fed Chair chair and then sent the markets reelin’. She just spoke the truth. From her it was tellin’. Markets are overvalued. But. February 6, 2017 stocks were at 20,000. So.

More yellin’ about pets on airplanes. Broken record alert! Thanks though to David Leonhardt in the NYTimes for makin’ the case so well. ” It is one of the downsides of a modern culture that too often fetishizes individual preference and expression over communal well-being. ”

Poor Gronk was robbed! Insult to injury. Maybe somebody’s tellin’ him to retire. And what was Chris Christie doin’ in the beach audience of Live with Kelly & Ryan at the Atlantis?

Philly Dilly

Superb Bowl 52. Great game. Everything from missed kicks to creative plays. Couldn’t miss a minute. Including commercial breaks. Eli & Odell stole the ads fest. My fave was Stranger Things Tide guy. Justin Timberlake’s half-time show may have been good. Who knows? Muffled bad sound. Again. So. My predilection was Minnesota beats Pats at home. No. My prediction Pats beat Eagles. Also no. But. Who cares? Philly is the dilly!
