On June 11, 1938 Pitcher Johnny Vander Meer threw a no-hitter, On June 15, 1938, Johnny Vander Meer threw another no hitter, becoming the only man in the history of baseball to throw two no hitters in a row in consecutive starts. To break his record, a pitcher would have to throw three no hitters in a row. 27 scoreless no hit innings of baseball in a row.
Records are often spoken about in terms of being unbreakable. We have long held to the belief that Johnny Vander Meer's record is the most unbreakable record in sports.
Which brings us to our president. No president has ever been impeached twice. A few have been impeached once. It would seem being impeached twice would be an unbreakable record, but given the events of this past week, Donald J Trump may accomplish something no one thought possible- being impeached twice in one term as president. We cheer him on. "Go for it!" we say. Do the unthinkable. Make the history books.
Meanwhile, we are a bit jealous. The President has been PERMANENTLY BANNED by Twitter. No fair! We want to be permanently banned by Twitter. Imagine the cool merch: "BANNED BY TWITTER" T-shirts and hats. It would be cool. Therefore, by the power vested in us by being a blogger, we hereby call upon our followers to STORM the North Dade Justice Center next week (do it early in the day, rush hour traffic in Aventura sucks) chanting WE WANT JURY TRIALS! WE WANT JURY TRIALS!
Go on Twitter and demand @justicebuilding be banned for being exceptionally smug.
Come on. Take a stand. Storm the Castle, or the North Dade Justice Center as it were.
Have you gotten the images of jack-booted thugs storming our Capitol and being gently escorted from the premises by the Capitol Police "Come on you guys, cool it will ya?" Is there anyone here who doesn't think a Black Lives Matter march that stormed the Capitol would have been brutally attacked by the police, handcuffed and dragged away screaming in pain? It is a national disgrace how nicely the white right wing Nazis were treated. It makes us sick.
Baseball cannot start soon enough to get our mind off these awful days.
