Mush-Ma-Geddon

Sleet. Slush. Mush. Mess. Soon to become a frozen hazard zone. Yup. Blizzard predictions of epic proportions in NYC a fizz. Overreach. It’s a trend. To stay sane. Netflix’ Schitt’s Creek with Eugene Levy and his real life kids keeps one laughing out loud. A must-binge.

Final Four Picks. Staying with 6’s. It’s a theme. St. Mary’s. Wisconsin. Michigan. SMU.

Finishing Touches

Snow. Sleet. Wind. Time to finish series left dormant on DVR. The Affair season 3 was not as riveting as past two. It did leave each in the cheating couple alone at the end. Good Behavior besides star Michelle Dockery’s great performance as a very flawed woman, also features a stellar acting ensemble. Bradley Cooper in movie Burnt was a fun distraction about dueling top chefs in London. SNL did not live up to prior weeks’ standards. Alec Baldwin disappointing. Writing weak. On to Girls, Grammy’s and Homeland.

Capping off a successful Super Bowl celebration, Bob Kraft dined with Japan’s Abe & the Trump’s at Mar-a-Lago while Bill Belichick played golf at Pebble Beach (but he is a member of Mar-a-Lago).

Tom Terrific

Tom trumped post-Joe Montana history for an epic Super Bowl comeback. After a defense-dominated three quarters, Brady found unlikely White. Amendola. Edelman’s magical catch. To seal Patriots’ legendary fate. Buddy Prez predicted they’d win by eight. Close. Now. About the dumb overtime ruling that comes down to a coin toss. That needs to change. Still. A fairy tale ending with Goodell getting booed as Kraft grabbed the trophy ball. Deflate this!

Lady GaGa was no Bruno Mars. But. Girl can put on a show. It was good.

Super Swirl

There’s football today? Politics has overtaken the dialogue so much that Super Bowl 51 is hardly mentioned. Trump-friendly Pats owner and players the prominent topic. Not the actual game. But. Crazy Prez has brought out Lorne Michaels’ genius again. Melissa McCarthy killed it as Sean Spicer. Alec and his scary sidekick Steve Bannon nailed it. Kristen Stewart was excellent. Skits were well written. Actually watched all of SNL for the first time in years.

Dowd has taken to writing about Mrs. T. And. New Yorker article cleverly spoofs her sneaking in at the womens’ march. Let’s face it. Melania may be the most feminist first lady ever. Refusing to follow her man to the White House.

Okay. Let’s talk about New England v. Atlanta. 24-31.

Snowflake Alert!

Nope. Not many real snowflakes this winter. At least not in the City. Not yet. But. To all you snowflakes out there. Huddled in your safe zones. In denial that the Pats are owned by Trump buddy Bob Kraft. And that recent golf partner Tiger missed the cut.

Here are 3 suggestions to thwart TTSD:  1) Watch old episodes of Billy on the Street.  2) Read spy novels by Alex Berenson.  3) Listen to Bruce Springsteen read his autobiography.

Hasta Luego to our doorman Pedro. 42 years at the same building. West Side Rag.

Good News Bad News

Good News. Trump is emphasizing economic growth and jobs across racial and gender lines. Bad News. He’s still obsessed with conspiracy fraud in the election results and crowd size. TTSD continues.

Good News. Left-wing activist groups will raise bizillions of dollars railing against Trump’s agenda and social policies. Bad News. Identity politics won’t win general elections.

Good News. My picks made it to the Super Bowl. Bad News. Pats may win. Again.

Good News. Tiger returns to Torrey Pines. Bad News. If he doesn’t make the cut it’ll suck.

Danger Field

Rodney Dangerfield. The comedian famous for lamenting “I don’t get no respect”.  This may be the constant rant we hear over the next four years. As our new Petulant Adolescent President continues his knee-jerk – emphasis on jerk – reactions to each perceived disrespect. With Theresa May sounding similar in the UK it could be a dangerous world. Cue TTSD.

On the football field. Will I. Am v. Peeper Creeper. The 2 Rodgers v. the Ryan-Shanahan Fighting Irish. Okay. I say. SuperBowl. Atlanta v. Pats. Atlanta wins.
