One Year Later, I'M WITH --H-->

2017 World Series

Well, it won't be the Cubbies and the Yankees after all:
No nostalgic return to 1932.
Nor will it be Los Angeles vs. the Yankees, ala 1981, 1977 or 1978 (or 1963, 1956 .... etc.)
Nor will it be a 2005 hybrid rematch between the Astros and the Chicago White Sox.

No, this is new, and this is very old.
The age-old match up between an immovable object and an irresistible force.  
Physics 101 as demonstrated by the Dodgers and the Astros,
here in 2017.


I hold out hope for the underdog, the Irresistible Force Astros, winning the best of seven game series beginning tonight in Chavez Ravine.  But not that much hope, as the laws of 
physics, in the form of the Dodger's Immovable Object (the masterful pitching thereof).

It may go 5 games, it could go 6, if we're lucky enough~  but Physics/Dodgers should survive, shutting down the offensive power of the mighty Astros' hitters.

It seems to be the same kind of confrontation every year lately, Pitching versus Hitting:
and but with only one (1) notable exception I can think of,
Pitching. Always. Wins.

In this 21st century, there has not been any team to win back-to-back World Series, and I find that just extraordinary; Eighteen years, eighteen different teams take the crown. 
Where's any dynasty?
Dynasty, legendary teams which only get better with the next year's season--- 

It hasn't happened in nearly 20 years: Yankees, Diamondbacks, Angels, Marlins, Red Sox, White Sox, Cardinals, Red Sox, Phillies, Yankees, Giants, Cardinals, again the Giants, again the Red Sox, AGAIN the Giants, the Royals, and finally after all these years, the Cubbies last year; 
just non sequitur after non sequitur.

And it makes me wonder, if the trend should continue this way, what will be the team to win a 21st Century World Series, then go on to win the next?

At the beginning of this baseball season, I never foresaw the awesome, dominant pitching rotation in the Los Angeles Dodgers camp;  nor did I foresee the powerful lineup of the Houston Astros-

~( as a St. Louis Cardinals fan, I'm feeling grateful that the Chicago Cubs were not the only, ONE, unique winner last fall;
all of America should also be thankful too~)

The Astros of Houston have never won a World Series to this point.  I hope that their hits and their runs, rain down on the Dodgers nine, as Harvey rained down on Houston in August~
That alone will ensure that the 2018 World Series winner will be some other team, as usual.

There Will Always be STUPID PARENTS,
DUMBASS KIDS


LINCOLN COUNTY, Okla. - A 10-year-old boy was killed and an 8-year-old boy was injured after being shot with a crossbow Saturday in Lincoln County.

According to Lincoln County Sheriff Charles Dougherty, deputies responded to a report just before 6 p.m. Saturday that two children, who are brothers, had been shot with a crossbow. When deputies arrived, they learned that one boy, 10-year-old Austin Almanza,was pronounced dead at the scene.
Dougherty said both were shot with a crossbow, using a broadhead arrow. One arrow hit the 10-year-old boy first. It then traveled through and left his body, hitting the 8-year-old victim in the arm.
The arrow, Dougherty said, was still inside the 8-year-old child’s arm when deputies arrived. He was taken to OU Trauma Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
A 13-year-old boy is being held at a juvenile detention center in connection with the incident. His name has not been released due to his juvenile status. He is not related to the victims, deputies said.
Dougherty said investigators with the sheriff’s office and the district attorney’s violent crime task force continue to investigate the incident and it’s being investigated as a homicide. Dougherty said he anticipates to turn their findings into the DA’s office Monday for formal charges to be filed some time this week.
Both victims are students at White Rock Elementary School in southwest Lincoln County. The 13-year-old attends a different middle school in the county, according to the sheriff’s office.

I don't care how much of a traditional sportsman you claim to be, taking advantage of all of the various, Oklahoma hunting seasons-- 

YOU ALWAYS LOCK UP YOUR WEAPONS, inside your home, REGARDLESS OF HOW JACKED-UP-CONSERVATIVE YOU ARE.

Nobody is more conventionally Conservative, and Pro-weapon than me in Oklahoma.  I have been a dues-paying NRA member since I was 17~~
But I considered all aspects of my family's tradition where/as I house and lock our handguns, rifles, my crossbow, while I display my Native bow-, both while I lived in Yanush, and now in Poteau.  Because I take time to consider what could possibly happen, if any of my personal defensive weaponry, or my hunting weapons, my Chahta bow or my crossbow, should be taken~

Traditional Okies of all stripes, respectively mourn this boy's tragic, accidental death, and we mourn the crossbow-user's line of thinking, but 
we should NEVER consider banning the use of these weapons, based solely upon one kid's unfortunate, tragic choice.

Okies will mourn for both families, in this tragedy, while hoping that viral, Liberal antagonists will just stay reverently silent~

Oklahoma State Cowboys Fight Song (Waving Song/Ride'em Cowboys)





Oklahoma State University beat the Texas Longhorns in overtime, 
13 -10, in Austin.
This win by Oklahoma State over the Texas bunch, in my mind, is far more significant that last Saturday's Cotton Bowl victory by OU over the Longhorns by 5pts., since it took place on their home field.

And yet, both the OU Sooners and the OSU Cowboys, dropped one-place in the AP football poll~

there IS something wrong with the Associated Press football poll.

Serious questions MUST be asked of OSU head coach Mike Gundy, WHY WASN'T MASON RUDOLPH'S PASSING SKILLS USED MORE DURING THE GAME?

The Kennedy Assassination Files
Finally To Open~!

Lovingly lifted from the Old Grey Lady, this stunning announcement:  


WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to release a final batch of thousands of classified government documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Mr. Trump announced in a tweet on Saturday morning.

The release of the information being held in secret at the National Archives — including several thousand never-before-seen documents — was mandated to occur by Oct. 26 under a 1992 law that sought to quell conspiracy theories about the assassination.

Mr. Trump has the power to block the release of the documents, and intelligence agencies have pressured him to do so for at least some of them. The agencies are concerned that information contained in some of the documents could damage national security interests.

What information, from 54 years ago, could damage national security interests, today??
Will Papa Bush be implicated as a gunman for the CIA?
Oops, will the mafia be pissed off?
Is Lyndon Johnson's family planning an antifa protest?


President Kennedy was assassinated in November, 1963, after ordering the US Treasury to begin issuing "Silver Certificate" currency, backed by our national stokpile of refined silver, as well as our nation's potential for mining so much more of the precious metal. 
So will the Federal Reserve be exposed in the document release, 
as being a conspirator in Kennedy's murder too?  

I just hope that the remaining, long secret documents imply that there were other shooters, on that grassy knoll along Dealy Plaza, that sunny afternoon in Dallas.

Valliant Hillary!
Just A 'Broken Toe'--
Her CLAW Still Usable,
Her Scorn, Still Unmistakable

According to Hillary, "I've broken my Toe"


What is it with this compulsive liar, Hillary Clinton?  Now it comes out that she's fallen in London, and as a result, had to cancel or postpone a number of television interviews.  Why does she consistently, predictably come up with an utter lie to explain herself??  Does she feel that if she lies to make herself seem an innocent victim, she can reach and claim one more follower?

Seriously?  
Hillary would concoct a lie about breaking her toe (Recalling her tumble, she said: 'I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards')**, instead of just
the simple truth?
If she had lied more proficiently, Hillary would have claimed to be holding a cup of TEA, rather than coffee, in London~

We all saw her being dragged into her security van at the 2016, 9-11 Commemoration; she's well known for needing help just climbing a set of steps leading to a porch;

But she's also well known for uhh, exaggerating otherwise mundane events in her life.  Like arriving in Bosnia, under intense sniper fire; like not knowing that having a private email address through which she conducted official State Department business, was illegal;

I don't know which of Hillary's other, multiple acts of brazen lying to list next, because there are so many instances which I could cite.
Seriously.

One joke about Hillary Clinton's being in Great Britain, heard while making my casino rounds yesterday, was that she was in London because she's heard that Queen Elizabeth II may retire soon, and that Hill wanted to be there, ready to assume the throne.


Weird thing is, it's  believable: 
A Throne, any Throne.

And let's face it, the Brits would far more be interested in our more tarnished-pseudo-Royalty, than seeing Charles inherit that position.

Because during their long, sovereign history, they have experienced far worse things, than Hillary's Unbreakable Claws~

**  Hillary's explanation also defies the laws of physics.
HOWEVER, the violation of any law, has never been a problem for her~ 
How could she break a toe, by Falling Backward~?

"Montana ?" Dream

This is so 'un-blog-worthy', but I had just the strangest dream this morning before my alarm went off.  And after I'd reached over to hit the alarm clock, the first word that I spoke was in the form of a question, 

"Montana?!?"

My wife rose up on her elbow, and said "Montana? What about Montana?"

I dreamt that I was driving around and the sky was so wide open and pure blue, I was so happy to be here in Montana. So overjoyed to be under the cloudless, Montana sky was I, that I stopped at a small hamburger restaurant, and asked a total stranger seated inside with his date, to buy me a Coke.
I introduced myself to them, and he told me his name was 'Mike', and he asked the waitress to add a Coke to his order.  

As I stood waiting for the waitress to bring out the drink to me, I told Mike that I'd return the favor, if he ever visited my job, at the Choctaw Casino in McAlester....  (I guess in McAlester, Montana)

I remember vividly, even ironically saying in this dream restaurant, to a dream stranger,
how nobody's ever realized that Arkansas was right next to Montana~!

I feel that I dreamt that I was in a Hardee's restaurant, which used to be behind Central Mall in Fort Smith, Arkansas, but I've not visited that Hardee's in 25 years, at least-- Shoot, it may not even be there anymore, I don't know~

Still waiting for my Coke, I recognized two people I went to Poteau High School with, who were in a booth sitting behind Mike.
Then I saw one of my best high school friends standing outside the restaurant, about to come inside~  I have not seen any of these three people in 30 years (one's dead, one's in prison, the other lives in Kansas City)


Suddenly, I realized that I held a white, longbow in my right hand, began waving it around, wondering where my Coca-Cola was....     That was when the alarm went off.



But Why Montana??

Leticia made (Blue and Gold brand) sausage balls and sauerkraut and fry bread for dinner last night, and sliced fresh pears for dessert. CountryTime lemonade to drink.

I hope there's leftovers for tonight~!

P.S.== Every purchase of Blue and Gold sausage benefits local school organizations, EXCLUSIVELY:  A local FFA chapter, a band fundraiser, or recently, when the Cameron, Ok. school burned down to the ground.
