OTP - 2015 November 9: Political Scene: Baseball and ponies among R.I. lawmakers’ expenses

Dinners at Capital Grille, a van rental for a Little League team, a catered Fourth of July celebration and a pony rental are just some of the expenses that showed up in state lawmakers’ most recent campaign fundraising and spending reports.

“My church has a picnic, and I donated the pony rides,” Gallison said, referencing an annual picnic at St. Mary’s Parish, in Bristol.

OTP - 2015 November 2: During the World Series, Politics Makes Strange Bet Fellows

Her gibe, though, raises a question: What are these things on which the dysfunctional Congress supposedly agrees?

Their wager is just one of several that have been made between various elected officials from the two regions, in keeping with a familiar World Series tradition as cheesy as whatever is failing to be sneaked past hungry vermin.

For example, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gov. Jay Nixon of Missouri have also agreed to wear the winning team’s jersey for a full day if their team loses. Presumably this allows for other articles of clothing to be worn as well.

OT: Monthly NBA Thread - November 2015

Inexplicably 27 person made a prediction for this season in the pre-season thread, but now that’s outta the way I estimate only 15-20 primates who care about the NBA on a regular basis, but with our own thread we won’t derail this site from what it is mainly about….. The war in Syria

OT: NBA Pre-Season Thread

I estimate only 5 Primates posted in the August NBA thread (and we didn’t even bother to do a September thread.), but with media day already here, we make our own pre-season thread here so we won’t detract from what this site is really about: Make America Great Again #Trump2016
