I had no intention of watching football today. The football Gods stuck a fork in the Detroit Lions a week or so ago. On the other hand, Mrs. Rumbear and the Rumbear Youth are died in the wool Charger fans. Thus, the morning was spent following Miami...(lose, lose, lose) and the Ravens (lose, lose lose)...that would set the table so that if the Chargers beat the Chiefs....they are in the playoffs. Dolphins lost. C-ya! Ravens lost. C-ya!
The table was set. Time for the Chargers to deliver. Chiefs had said they would be sitting their starters. Resting them up for their own playoffs. Chargers would be playing the Replacements....what could go wrong? Yeah, well, it is the Chargers. Up and down game that went to overtime.....and the Chargers pulled it off! Winning ugly but I will take it! Wife is happy.(i.e. Happy wife. Happy life)
On to CinciTucky next week to play the Bengals. Go Bolts!!!

one of the key actions we should take before this legislation moves
forward. In fact, greater savings than this can be achieved by passing a
legislative fix recommended by the Inspector General of the U.S.
Treasury that would stop the IRS from improperly providing tax credits
to illegal aliens,” Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions said Monday,
Sessions hoped to attach his amendment to the deal — which would have
closed the loophole by requiring a Social Security number to claim the
refundable portion of the child tax credit and restore military
Sessions’ motion failed on a 46 to 54 party-line vote, with North
Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan crossing the aisle as the lone Democrat to vote
with the Republicans.
“Reid’s majority just voted to keep pension cut for vets instead of
