World Series Game 2: Takeaways from an
Astros win

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 10/30/2022 12:02:33 AM

This time, a 5-0 lead was more than enough for the Houston Astros. A day after allowing the Philadelphia Phillies to come back to win 6-5 in extra innings, the Astros took care of business in Game 2, winning 5-2. Framber Valdez went 6.1 innings, giving up one run and striking out nine, while Houston led off the game with three straight extra-base hits, a first in World Series history. An Alex Bregman two-run home run added some insurance, but Houston was in control of this game from the first pitch. Here are the best sights and sounds from Game 2 of what is now a tied 2022 World Series.

Ever since professional sports of all varieties went so "woke", I really don't care about any of them. But I am actually rooting for the Astros solely because Mattress Mac (people from Houston know exactly who I am talking about) will win $75,000,000 if the Astros win the World Series. Given how incredibly generous this man has been to so many people, I know that $75,000,000 will end up helping a lot of people. So go Astros!!!!!!!!

Outside of the cities of the teams playing, no one really pays that much attention to the world series. However, people everywhere watch the super bowl no matter what teams are playing. NHL hockey is the same as baseball. Outside of the teams playing, no one really pays attention to the Stanley Cup. Of course, none of this matters to a real sports enthusiast or gambler. Baseball and Hockey are the two pro sports that don't have woke messages anywhere. Football has something on the field, and NBA basketball have them on the courts.

#2, Mattress Mac (a self made furniture store owner who has made millions selling mattresses, etc.) has a 10 million dollar bet (I think through one of the Las Vegas casinos) for the Astros to win and it will pay 75 million if they do. He will loose the 10 million if they lose, so GO 'Stros!!

Another takeaway - Schwarber's home run flyball down the right field line was foul by maybe a foot or so. That would have made the score 5 to 3. A Phillies bad throw to first base allowed an unearned Astros run. A late Phillies run in the eighth inning would have resulted in a 4 to 4 tie score. Who knows what the outcome would have been?

I watch baseball, everything baseball including the Little League. One of my favorite teams is the Space City Astros along with the NY Yankees. I wouldn't miss the World Series for anything. I do have teams I dislike one 'woke' team is the Cleveland (Indians) sell outs and the hated Toronto Blue Jays with their horrible fans. Every sport has its sour grapes. Go Astros.

It's not MLB anymore it is BLM baseball. Who wants to watch a bunch of overpaid America hating commies hitting a ball around. Another fine American sport taken over and despoiled by the Communist Death Democrats.

While I don't know who the powers that be have decided will be the series champs, I (personally) believe that the series will go all 7 games, because that's a bigger payday for everyone involved!

Washington - Conservative Supreme Court justices on Monday indicated they are willing to end the explicit consideration of race in college admissions as they weighed cases challenging affirmative action policies at the University of North Carolina and Harvard University. Members of the court's conservative majority questioned the legal rationale for allowing the practice and probed to what extent universities could enact new "race neutral" admissions policies aimed at improving racial diversity. Some justices, however, indicated they would be willing to allow applicants to discuss their racial identity in some form as part of essays touching upon their experiences, such as examples of overcoming discrimination.

The suspect in the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was charged Monday with assault and attempted kidnapping. David Wayne DePape, 42, was charged with one count of assault of an immediate family member of a United States official “with the intent to retaliate against the official on account of the performance of official duties,” the Department of Justice announced. If convicted, the assailant could face up to 30 years in prison. DePape was also charged with one count of attempted kidnapping of a United States official, presumably Nancy Pelosi.

Justice Clarence Thomas pressed North Carolina’s solicitor general to explain how the University of North Carolina defines diversity during oral arguments on Monday in a Supreme Court case centered around the use of race as a factor in college admissions. “I’ve heard the word diversity quite a few times and I don’t have a clue what it means,” said Thomas. “It seems to mean everything for everyone.” Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) has challenged the race-based admissions policies of both Harvard and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), accusing both schools of discriminating against Asian-American applicants. The cases were initially merged, but are now being heard separately

Elon Musk has dissolved Twitter’s board of directors and appointed himself the company’s “sole director,” according to a Monday securities filing. Immediately after completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter on Thursday, Musk fired several senior executives, including CEO Parag Agrawal. The board included nine directors and Musk’s move is the latest in a series of overhauls he is planning on implementing.

The day before yesterday, Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was attacked at the couple’s home in San Francisco by a male assailant. Law enforcement sources that remained unnamed told CNN that the assailant was searching for the Speaker of the House. The source claims the intruder confronted the Speaker’s husband in their San Francisco home shouting, “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?” This was apparently the exact call that January 6th ‘rioters’ made as they ‘hunted’ House Speaker and broke into her office. How did Paul Pelosi manage to alert the police?

Furthermore, 73 percent of Republican voters list the economy and inflation as their top issue going into the midterm elections — with 45 percent saying the economy and 28 percent saying inflation. The poll also found that half of independent voters (50 percent) say either the economy or inflation is their number one issue going into November.
Poll: Independent Voters Swing 18 Points
Toward GOP on Generic Ballot

Independent voters are breaking for Republican candidates less than two weeks before the November 8 midterm elections. According to CBS/YouGov polling from October 12 to 14, independent voters preferred generic congressional Democrat candidates over Republican ones by 40 percent to 38 percent. However, in a second poll from October 26 to 28, independents said they preferred generic congressional Republican candidates over Democrat candidates by 49 percent to 33 percent. This means that Republicans saw an 18-point swing in their favor among independent voters over a two-week period. The CBS/YouGov web-based poll surveyed 1,000 Americans and has a +/- 3.5 percent margin of error.

The attack on Paul Pelosi, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, has dominated the news the last few days. Questions still remain about how David DePape, a nudist protester with a convoluted political history, got inside the house, but what appears fairly clear is that the assailant had a drug-induced psychotic break. Naturally, though, the easy answer isn’t the one the left wants. Instead, they want to pretend that Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy making a joke a year ago is what actually “radicalized” DePape because everything must be stupid. CBC News anchor Margaret Brennan toed that line on Sunday, losing her mind because the GOP refuses to concede the election to Democrats nine days

The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result.

With expectations rising that Democrats will not only lose their one-party grip on Congress in nine days but incur such deep losses that the party could be annihilated politically, the narrative engineers flew into action in a rush to judgement to spin the assault on Paul Pelosi in a manner that would energize their base in a critical late push for increased turnout.

The incident at the Pelosi house on early Friday morning is still puzzling at best. There now are more questions than answers. The police didn’t share how David DePape entered the house in their first press conference. They did mention that they charged him with burglary but that was it.
