Troy Aikman, Hall of Famer on the field and great as a game analyst




Related image



Has it been 21 years since the Cowboys played in a Super Bowl?  Can you believe that?  

Those were the days when Troy Aikman led the Cowboys to 3 Super Bowls in 4 years.

On the field, Aikman was great:  # 1 draft choice, 3 Super Bowl rings, a couple of Super Bowl MVPs and a great role model and citizen. 

Since he stopped playing, Aikman has been a Fox Sports analyst.   He is grown to be an excellent game analyst.





Remember when David Brooks wrote great articles?

Once upon a time, I used to love reading David Brooks.    

After the 2004 election, he wrote "The New Red Diaper Babies".   
It is a fascinating look at how the red states are having babies and the blue states are not:    You can see surprising political correlations. 
As Steve Sailer pointed out in The American Conservative, George Bush carried the 19 states with the highest white fertility rates, and 25 of the top 26. John Kerry won the 16 states with the lowest rates.
In The New Republic Online, Joel Kotkin and William Frey observe, "Democrats swept the largely childless cities -- true blue locales like San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Boston and Manhattan have the lowest percentages of children in the nation -- but generally had poor showings in those places where families are settling down, notably the Sun Belt cities, exurbs and outer suburbs of older metropolitan areas."
Sooner or later, voters get old and die. They are replaced by new voters. 

I can not guarantee that "red state babies" will grow up to be Republicans. 

However, I can guarantee that there will be more young people growing up in places like Texas than New Jersey.

What does it all mean politically?   Let's wait and see.   However, I'd rather be on the side that has more babies!

Here is a recent book by David Brooks:

Is all of this anti-Trump stuff helping California?

Image result for california images
A few days ago, I chatted with a friend in California and naturally President Trump’s name came up quickly. He is not a very political person but did ask a fair question: are California politicians going to do anything but criticize Trump? After all, they do have some problems in the state, such as out of control public pensions that could soon rival Illinois!
Yes, is California anything other than a farm system for developing Trump-hating rhetoric?    
We see the anti-Trump influence in efforts to “primary” Senator Diane Feinstein. I guess that some in the left do not think that she is “left” enough. Can anyone call Senator Dick Durbin, who reminded Democrats that going “too left” may be an electoral problem?
We see a lot more, as Reid Wilson reported:   
Feinstein’s challengers offer a hint at the first wave of a coming generational change in California politics, as members of the older generation — led by the 84-year-old Feinstein, 79-year-old Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, 77 — near the end of their careers.
 
The generation that will vie for the state’s top jobs is fashioning itself as decidedly more aggressive, if not notably more liberal. 
Those hoping to move up are appealing to a Democratic base that is as energized by the anti-Trump resistance as Tea Party voters were by opposition to President Obama.
“The last generation of Democratic leaders was liberal but practical,” said John Pitney, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College and a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee. 
“The next generation is under pressure to be more dogmatic. The Democratic left shuns any accommodation with Republicans.”
Nearly a decade ago, Tea Party voters fueled discord within the Republican ranks, both as establishment contenders faced conservative rivals and longtime incumbents were deemed insufficiently ideological.
Now, it’s the Democrats’ turn.
Liberal but practical? I guess that the opposite of that is radical and unwilling to compromise? How is that going to help California fit in?
And not so fast with The Tea Party comparison.
First, The Tea Party happened because a bunch of citizens like me wanted to make a point. It was never organized by politicians or any leaders. I was at many Tea Party rallies and I saw self-employed guys who took time from their businesses to show up, along with lots of moms with kids who were talking about national debt. It was not based on a hatred of President Obama but rather honest opposition to policies.
Second, California’s reaction to Trump is hysterical to say the least. It is fueled by things like “sanctuary cities” or an irrational defense of illegal immigration. California opposes anything that Trump proposes, or as simple as that. That’s not a political movement but rather immature people who live in another universe!
As my friend asked: is any of this good for California? My guess is no.   
At least, that’s what I hear from Golden State “refugees” settling in Texas. They talk about high taxes, abusive regulations, and “rent” that only the rich can afford. They miss the lovely weather but not everything else left behind!

Reggie, Reggie, Reggie and Game 6 of the 1977 World Series


Yes, I watched this one on TV:
“On October 18, 1977, in the sixth game of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees outfielder Reggie Jackson hits three home runs in a row off of three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers.
Only the great Babe Ruth had ever hit three homers in a single World Series game (and he did it twice, once in 1926 and once in 1928) —but he didn’t do it on consecutive pitches or even consecutive at-bats.
Jackson’s amazing home-run streak helped the Yankees win the game and the series, the team’s first since 1962.”
He was Mr. October after that!

We remember Barbara Billingsley (1915-2010)





Like many of you, I grew up watching "Leave it to Beaver".   I still love the re-runs and watch them whenever I have the time.

Barbara Billingsley, the lady who played Mrs Cleaver or "Beaver's mom", died after a long illness in October 2010.

Who didn't love Mrs Cleaver?  She reminded me of my mom and every other mom that I came in touch with during those "growing up" years.

Thanks for all of those wonderful shows that generations will love forever!

Go watch an episode:




Reggie hits 3 HR in game 6 of 1977 World Series



Yes, I remember watching this.   It was game 6 of the 1977 World Series.  Reggie Jackson hit three HR in a row off of three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers.  They were Burt Hooton, Elias Sosa and Charlie Hough.

And then he became Mr October!

1977 was Jackson's first year with the Yankees.  He had signed as a free agent and was expected to help the team win the World Series after New York had lost to Cincinnati the year before.

Well, he had a good season (.286 BA, 32 HR & 110 RBI) and a great post season.   

Overall, Jackson hit .357 with 10 HR & 24 RBI in 27 World Series games with Oakland and New York.

We remember Chuck Berry (1926-2017)

We remember Chuck Berry who was born this day in 1926!   Berry died in March 2017.

Chuck Berry was a huge influence on The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. He was the father of those rock guitar riffs that we grew up listening to!

His songs were all over the charts and covered by everyone, from The Beatles to The Rolling Stones to every garage band from coast to coast.

We are so happy to delighted to remember a real American legend, the one and only Chuck Berry!

Some advice for former President Vicente Fox of Mexico


Image result for vicente fox cartoons

Who told former President Vicente Fox that we care about his opinions?
Once upon a time, President Fox was a very historic guy.   I would have voted for him in 2000 if I was a Mexican citizen.  In fact, I would have voted for his party (PAN) in ’94 and ’88.    PAN, a center-right party, was always a better option than the corrupt PRI.
Fox was indeed a breath of fresh air when he ended the PRI’s hold on the presidency in 2000.  His 38% plurality victory was a step in the right direction for Mexico.
Unfortunately, it was only a plurality.   It was a warning to his followers that Fox would have difficulties governing.   And he did!
Also, President Fox had horrible timing.   Unlike President Zedillo, his predecessor, President Fox had to deal with a US recession, an aggressive China dumping cheap products and the national security consequences of 9-11 that put US-Mexico relations on the back-burner.
President Zedillo rode the high tech boom of the late 1990’s and improved the nation’s economy after the 1994 devaluation.
Like President Bush, President Fox inherited a recession and the economic shock of 9-11.
Eventually, Vicente Fox retired and stayed in the background.
Lately, Fox has decided to play the nationalist card by taking sides on the immigration battle with the US.   He is picking fights with President Trump over this and that.    He is the Mexican version of “the resistance” against President Trump.
Let me give some advice to Pres. Fox:
1) Stay out of US domestic political disputes.  It does not help Mexico.
2) Fox also has a bad habit of sticking his foot in his mouth.   According to news reports, Fox said this back in 2005:
“There is no doubt that Mexicans, filled with dignity, willingness and ability to work are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States….”
With all due respect, Pres. Fox is crazy making a statement like that.   Again, he does stick his foot in his mouth from time to time!
Stay out of our politics, Vicente.    Nobody needs it, specially not the Mexicans in the US.

What a great tribute to Pres. Lincoln



Image result for lincoln movie images

President Lincoln just gets better with age. He was the right man at the most critical moment in US history.    A few years ago, a great movie came out about his efforts to pass the 13th amendment that abolished slavery.   It was a great movie!


We remember Curt Gowdy (1919-2006)

Image result for curt gowdy images

This afternoon, I caught an audio clip of Curt Gowdy doing a World Series game many years ago.    What a treat to hear that voice again!

Most of us grew up watching the NBC Saturday afternoon baseball game of the week and listening to Gowdy's voice.   I recall many World Series games, too.  He was also the voice of Super Bowl I and the famous Heidi game, when NBC cut off the Jets-Raiders game to broadcast the Disney movie.  It turned out to be a controversial decision because the game changed leads in the last few minutes.

In '84, Gowdy was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984.

Curt Gowdy died in 2006.   He was a gem calling baseball and football.






And Maduro steals another one!

Image result for venezuela maduro cartoons

The Maduro government has been desperately looking for something to cheer about.   They face lots of problems including debt payments that they may not have the money to make.
So what’s better than having an election and winning big? Or what about winning a “surprise victory“?
It appears that candidates associated with the Chavez movement won most of the governors and state races.   
We remind you that projections were showing the opposite but pollsters could be wrong down there too. The Chavez group won 17 of 23 governorships and nobody believes it. I’m not sure that Maduro and his people believe it either.
The opposition is not buying these results. Why should they? 
My friend Daniel Duquenal has been covering this election and fraud in his blog. He has the best explanation of what happened this weekend:     
I knew that the regime would forge results, would commit electoral fraud, but what happened tonight is grotesque.
Venezuela has to be the ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD where food scarcity, severe lack of health care, near hyperinflation levels, major street violence, living under curfew, no hope in hell for whatsoever, and the government GAINS votes. 
No kidding, researchers from the entire world should flock to Venezuela in the next days to study that miracle of politics. 
Books will be written about on how to win elections by screwing up people.
This is enough to claim electoral fraud.
Yes, rush the political scientists to Venezuela and analyze what just happened. This is the first time that has an honest election has returned to power the people that gave us massive shortages, hyperinflation and horrific crime.    
Venezuela has just witnessed a fraud. President Trump should immediately announce that the U.S. does not recognize these results. Let’s hope that other Latin American countries do the same, although they’ve always been scared of opining about elections in neighboring nations for fear that the message could be used against them when they count votes.
This is a great opportunity for President Trump to squeeze Maduro and his masters in Cuba. We just saw an election that would make Fidel Castro proud. 
Support the people of Venezuela now more than ever.

2006: Navarette blamed Democrats!




Back in 2006, we had a very good discussion about immigration reform.   It was based on the Kennedy-McCain bill.   It got us nowhere and it was ultimately defeated.

According to Ruben Navarette:
"Who killed immigration reform? The autopsy shows it was Senate Democrats." 
I am glad that a Hispanic columnist like Navarette is pointing out that Democrats killed the Senate deal.  In retrospect, it looks like Republicans had a good compromise but Democrats wanted an issue for the weekend marches.


1960: "Save the Last Dance For Me” was # 1 this week



In 1960, The Drifters were on top of the charts with "Save the Last Dance For Me."   

The Drifters had other hits:  "There Goes My Baby" (1959) and "This Magic Moment" (1960).   They also had several lead vocalists:  Clyde McPhatter, Ben E. King, Rudy Lewis & Johnny Moore.    

The group was inducted into The Rockn' Roll Hall of Fame in 1988:

Europe looking the other way


Image result for european birth rates images

They talk a lot about global warming in Europe and Canada. We do our share of talking here, too.
Where is the talk about the real threat facing Europe, or the West as a whole, for that matter?
Where are the marches calling on Europeans to get married and have at least two little babies? A march for marriage and babies may sound a bit silly but Europe could use one badly.
Like a dead body of water, Europe is drying out in front of our eyes.   
At current birth rates, there won’t be any Europeans around to determine if the global warming predictions were a hoax or real!
 
Read this:
“Europe needs more babies — the average continental family has a mere 1.37 children…Germany is similarly concerned — it could lose the equivalent of the population of the former East Germany within 50 years… Russia’s population is contracting at the rate of three quarters of a million a year: the resourceful Mr Putin is paying mothers to have a second child…. The last thing we should be doing is bullying people to breed less.” (“The cry should go up in Europe: more babies, please” by Melanie McDonaghon)
Furthermore, you can not preserve your values, culture and democratic ideas if you do not “seed the future” with your own people.
We inherited progressive values from our parents and ancestors who gave us life. Don’t we have a responsibility to bring life into the world and preserve our culture?
Furthermore, at current birth rates, Europe can’t finance its massive welfare state! Who is going to care for the old if there are no young people to work, pay taxes and defend a way of life?
What’s behind the huge drop in birth rates? Has Europe lost its soul? Did it walk away from its Judeo-Christian heritage and replace it with mindless secularism? 
I don’t know the answer to those profound questions. 
I can only say this: Wake up Europe, or there won’t be any Europe in 50 years!

1975 World Series: Would replay have overturned the controversial Fisk-Ambrister play?



Image result for fisk armbrister baseball images

The 1975 World Series was probably the best post-season series of our generation.  We all remember game 6 and a very good game 7.     

The Reds beat the Red Sox in 7 games and it was one great game after another.

In game 3, there was a controversial play at home:
"In the 10th, Reds pinch-hitter Ed Armbrister attempted a sacrifice bunt and bounced the ball in front of the plate. Catcher Carlton Fisk, in an attempt to field the ball, collided with Armbrister and threw the ball into center in an attempt to force Cesar Geronimo at second. Geronimo went to third -- and later scored the game-winner -- and Armbrister moved to second. Home plate umpire Larry Barnett ruled there was no interference despite heated protests by the Red Sox."
Wonder if replay would have reversed that call?

Memories of Mark Holtz (1942-97) on the radio


Image result for mark holtz rangers images

Maybe I'm old fashioned but baseball is best on the radio.  Of course, I like to watch the games on TV but a good radio announcer is still my favorite.

Mark Holtz was born in October 1942 and passed away in 1997.   He was added to the Rangers' Hall of Fame a few years ago.   Holtz was the radio voice of the Rangers from 1982 until '97, when he died of cancer.

Holtz made a very bad team interesting.   Mark had terrible Rangers' teams for much of his broadcasting career.    Yet, it was fun to turn on the radio at 7 PM and hear Mark introduce the starting lineup.

Sadly, Holtz passed away and was not around for the '98 and '99 division titles or the back to back trips to The World Series in 2010 and 2011.   


Holtz did broadcast the '96 season, including the Friday night pennant clincher, the first one in team history.   The Rangers clinched in the 10th inning of the 160th game when the news came in that Oakland had beaten Seattle. It was pure joy to hear Mark Holtz say that the Rangers were the AL West champs for '96. It was just great!

I remember 3 of Mark's greatest radio calls:

First, it was Nolan Ryan's 6th no hitter in Oakland. ("The Ryan Express has done it again"....screamed Holtz as the team mobbed Ryan)

Second, Ryan's 7th no hitter. ("He struck him out swinging" was the last line of the game)

Third, Kenny Rogers' perfect game from the summer of '94.

Holtz was not smooth like Vince Scouly but he was great.




Happy # 76 Tim McCarver


We say happy birthday to Tim McCarver who was born on this day in 1941.     Tim broke with the Cardinals in 1959 and became one of the best catchers in the game.   

He retired with a .271 batting average in 1,909 games.

Tim McCarver was the catcher who caught Bob Gibson's 17 strikeouts in game 1 of the 1968 series.   He became one of my all time favorite players.  Tim's Cardinals won 3 NL pennants in 5 years beating the Yankees, the Red Sox and losing to the Tigers.

In the 1970's, he became Steve Carlton's catcher with the Phillies and the one who did the talking after the game.

He was a great player and an even greater TV analyst.

October 14, 1962: Day 1 of The Cuban Missile Crisis



We remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962.  

It turned out to be one of the most tense two weeks of the 20th century:
"The Cuban Missile Crisis begins on October 14, 1962, bringing the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear conflict. Photographs taken by a high-altitude U-2 spy plane offered incontrovertible evidence that Soviet-made medium-range missiles in Cuba—capable of carrying nuclear warheads—were now stationed 90 miles off the American coastline 
Tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union over Cuba had been steadily increasing since the failed April 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion, in which Cuban refugees, armed and trained by the United States, landed in Cuba and attempted to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro. Though the invasion did not succeed, Castro was convinced that the United States would try again, and set out to get more military assistance from the Soviet Union. During the next year, the number of Soviet advisors in Cuba rose to more than 20,000. Rumors began that Russia was also moving missiles and strategic bombers onto the island. Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev may have decided to so dramatically up the stakes in the Cold War for several reasons. He may have believed that the United States was indeed going to invade Cuba and provided the weapons as a deterrent. Facing criticism at home from more hard-line members of the Soviet communist hierarchy, he may have thought a tough stand might win him support.

Khrushchev also had always resented that U.S. nuclear missiles were stationed near the Soviet Union (in Turkey, for example), and putting missiles in Cuba might have been his way of redressing the imbalance. Two days after the pictures were taken, after being developed and analyzed by intelligence officers, they were presented to President Kennedy. During the next two weeks, the United States and the Soviet Union would come as close to nuclear war as they ever had, and a fearful world awaited the outcome" (History.com)

The Cuban Missile Crisis had several consequences.

First, it changed the perception that Pres JFK was weak.  

Second, it was the beginning of the end for Chairman Khrushchev.  He was gone by the fall of 1964.  The Soviets invested heavily in their military afterwards.  They understood that they were inferior to the US in October 1962.

Third, and sad for Cubans, it guaranteed Castro's survival and the establishment of a Soviet satellite.  The Soviet Union subsidized Cuba until it collapsed in 1992. 

It was many years ago but still a great story:
