I’ll be heading back home to Massachusetts this weekend so it’s time to clear off the blogging desk.

Geez, wasn’t it like, I dunno, a few weeks ago that Jordan Spieth was hoisting the FedEx Cup trophy and cashing that $10 million dollar check? And yet, here we go, another PGA Tour season is already upon us. 2016 is going to be a weird year with the final two majors, the Olympics, and the Ryder Cup all falling within weeks of each other. Everyone is predicting a monster year for Rory McIlroy, and it will be interesting to see where Spieth and Jason Day are also able to repeat their own successes during the 2014-15 season. No matter what, it oughta be exciting.

Anyone who thinks Donald Trump’s candidacy is going to fade ought to read this story. The fact is, like him or not, the guy knows how to win and doesn’t believe in finishing second. You can talk about any of the other candidates – on either side – but you can’t watch a Trump event without seeing what the attraction is: he loves this country, his confidence and positive can-do message is infectious, and he surrounds himself with winners.

I believe people are starving for a leader with a positive message. We’ve had nearly eight years of the Democrats and their mouthpieces in the mainstream media telling us everything that’s wrong with this country, that we’re no longer capable of greatness, and that we’re so helpless and stupid that we need the nanny state to help us and nurture us. Trump is different. He’s only interested in winning, and anyone who has played competitive sports (of which politics is) will tell you that winning begets winning. With the holidays right around the corner and the Iowa caucuses just weeks thereafter, I think he’s in a very strong position.

We’re now just weeks away from the release of Pink Floyd’s last album. Can’t wait to hear it.

Somehow I just have a feeling Democrats are making a huge mistake putting all of their eggs in the Hillary Clinton basket. Make no mistake about it: this is all inside baseball between Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s DNC and the Clintons. While I have little doubt that the mainstream media, the Beltway establishment, and the Clintonistas on Wall Street believe her presidency is a forgone conclusion, I’m betting that a significant block of Democrats won’t like having a lying, unethical political hack like Hillary Clinton shoved down their collective throats.

Hasn’t this been a great year for October baseball? Three out of the four playoff rounds go to a fifth game, all with lots of excitement. I’m rooting for the Blue Jays and the Cubs to make it to the World Series, and would love to see the Blue Jays take it all.

  1. I liked your TGIF blog. Good point about Donald Trump.
    Politics is not my strong point, but honestly I like this guy.
    He makes a lot of sense when I listen to him and he’s not afraid
    to speak his mind. I actually have read two of his books “The Art of The Deal”
    and “How To Get Rich”. If nothing else when he speaks I listen.

    My brother Jeff met him at Ernie Boch’s summer party this past
    August. I lost the bet that my brother would actually get a picture of him.
    Happy 60th! and have a great winter. Goodboy…Cubby.
