Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

"Sorry, I'll Be Golfing At Mar-A-Lago"

For the first time since 1910, the president will not throw out the ceremonial first pitch at an Opening Day baseball game.  Trump claims he has a scheduling conflict.  Puh-leeze!

Far more likely reasons that the man who once claimed to be, as a youth, "the best baseball player in New York" will not perform this traditional rite of spring:

  • Mr. Pixie Fingers can no longer properly grasp the ball in his tiny little hands.
  • When he did it in the past, he looked like he was taking a horrible shit.
  • He's afraid of being publicly booed by 40,000 people at Nationals Park.
  • He's scared of the numerous Mexican and Latino players on the rosters of both teams.
Our fearless leader is a frightened little weenie.
