Political Pigskin

It's 2nd down and inches to go from the 50 yard line with 2 minutes left in the ballgame. You are down 2 points and your opponent has all of their time outs remaining. Since halftime, your halfback has been averaging 5 yards per carry and your quarterback has been flawless.

While there are no 100% guarantees, the obvious play is for a hand off to the running back and ramming the ball up the middle. Odds are good for a first down with plenty of time left on the clock. If not, there is always a 3rd down. Maybe a play action and quick throw over the middle. Keep 'em guessing. But what makes no sense at all is for the coach to call for a 65-yard field goal attempt on 2nd down and into the wind.

That's what Trump has done with this Kavanaugh pick.

I read his pick for the 9th circuit is a total disaster ! WTH?

I didn't hear that yet kid. Now I feel like deleting this post as I feel more optimistic, the ninth circuit thingy notwithstanding. My wife dreamed that RBG takes a dirt nap soon so all will be well on the court.
