Cubs history: On this day in 1922, the Supreme Court ruled that baseball was not a business, it’s a sport, and therefore exempt from anti-trust laws. The Cubs lost in the 10th inning to the Cards. Cliff Heathcote, who will be traded to the Cubs the next day, got game-winning hit.
This is what a real president would have said...

The legendary Pam Zekman, one of Chicago television’s premier investigative reporters, was among at least a dozen employees at WBBM-Channel 2 who lost their jobs today in sweeping companywide layoffs at CBS, sources said.
Others cut reportedly included morning news anchor Erin Kennedy, sports anchor Megan Mawicke, meteorologist Megan Glaros, and reporters Mike Puccinelli and Mai Martinez, according to insiders.
Cubs history: On this day in 1941, while the Royal Navy was sinking the legendary German battleship Bismarck, the Cubs were losing in the bottom of the 9th to the Cardinals at Sportsman’s Park. Jake Mooty took the loss. #Cubs #everycubever
Somehow Jake Mooty didn't get mentioned in Johnny Horton's song, "Sink the Bismarck"...

COVID gave Trump a chance to be a decent, compassionate human being (or pretending to be). But he couldn't even do that. https://t.co/fIzHtmbOfR— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) May 24, 2020
The most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office is trying to lose AND take the Senate with him. Another Roy Moore fiasco so he can blame someone else for his own mess. https://t.co/fIzHtmbOfR— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) May 24, 2020
In the end, Trump will continue to act like a little boy, and his base, the voters who will stay with him to the end, will excuse him. When a grown man brags about being brave, it is unmanly and distasteful; when a little boy pulls out a cardboard sword and ties a towel around his neck like a cape, it’s endearing. When a rich and powerful old man whines about how unfairly he is being treated, we scowl and judge; when a little boy snuffles in his tears and says that he was bullied—treated worse than Abraham Lincoln, even—we comfort.
Donald Trump is unmanly because he has never chosen to become a man. He has weathered few trials that create an adult of any kind. He is, instead, working-class America’s dysfunctional son, and his supporters, male and female alike, have become the worried parent explaining what a good boy he is to terrorized teachers even while he continues to set fires in the hallway right outside.
I think that working men, the kind raised as I was, know what kind of “man” Trump is. And still, the gratification they get from seeing Trump enrage the rest of the country is enough to earn their indulgence. I doubt, however, that Trump gives them the same consideration. Perhaps Howard Stern, of all people, said it best: “The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most. The people who are voting for Trump for the most part … He’d be disgusted by them.” The tragedy is that they are not disgusted by him in return.
I'm hoping they discover some back bacon.
I watched a few hours of it too. I was really enjoying Tom Brady struggling, until of course, he turned it around. He made a shot from the fairway directly into the hole.

On the day the Brooklyn Bridge finally opened (May 24, 1883), connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan for the first time, the 1st place Cubs (then known as the White Stockings) were in Chicago playing the Providence Grays. SP Larry Corcoran won 34 games that year, but lost on this day
