Sunday Clutter: Kavanaugh Investigation, SNL, Elizabeth Warren, New England Patriots, Holmes and Watson, Anthony Bourdain, Ratt, and more

Hi everyone,

Welcome back!  Happy last day of September to you all.  This month went by fast.  How's your weekend going?  I helped Dad Clutter move some more stuff yesterday, so I'm hobbling around a bit right now.  (Someone forgot to stretch ahead of time.)  BDH and Little Buddha said not to worry, they've got everything under control.  Works for me.  They also want you to know that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter.

Donald Trump claims that the FBI has "free rein" regarding their new investigation of Brett Kavanaugh.   As usual, reality says otherwise.  It's clear that most Republican senators don't care if the accusations against Kavanaugh are true or not, but will they reconsider if polls continue to show that he's costing them support from Republican women?

Saturday Night Live is back, and they took a look at this week's Kavanaugh hearing:

Donald Trump wants the world to know that he and North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un "fell in love."   They do seem made for each other.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she'll be thinking about a presidential campaign after the mid-term elections in November.  It's been assumed by many that this decision was made years ago, but it's good to start advancing the story.  Gotta think Senator Warren's comments will keep the Great Pumpkin busy on Twitter for a while.

Elon Musk and Tesla will pay a total of $40 million in fines after Musk falsely tweeted about having secured funding to take the car company private earlier this year.  Musk will step down as the company's chairman for three years, but remain CEO, in an agreement reached with the SEC. As far as we can tell, that boils down to, Musk broke the law with a false claim and bought his way out of any lasting trouble.  Just another day in the world of white collar crime.

The Boston Red Sox lost 8-5 to the New York Yankees yesterday.   While that's never fun, our biggest concern is that everyone stays healthy as the regular season comes to a close, and with the exception of Chris Sale, they seem to be in good shape on that front.  Rick Porcello takes the mound for Boston this afternoon, and then the team has four days to do whatever they need to in order to prepare for the playoffs.

It's too late for him to make the postseason roster this year, but we encourage the Red Sox to sign the fan who threw Giancarlo Stanton's home run ball back onto the field and hit Stanton with the it all the way from the Green Monster.  That's an arm that Boston needs.

It's only Week 4 of the NFL season, and today's New England Patriots - Miami Dolphins game feels like the playoffs.  The 1-2 Patriots haven't looked good at...pretty much anything so far this year, the Dolphins are 3-0, and this has never felt like a good game to us for as long as we've been Pats fans.  This is a desperation game for the Patriots, so maybe they'll come out swinging on both sides of the ball, but unless Josh Gordon turns into Superman in his first game in New England, we don't have a good feeling about this one.

Deadpool 2 is coming back to the movie theaters during the holiday season, but this time it includes...Fred Savage?

We've got a look at the first trailer for the upcoming Holmes and Watson for you.  It's possible this is the most controversial opinion to be found at Clutter Headquarters, but we don't find the pairing of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly funny.  For those of you who are fans, check this out, and we hope we can still be friends:

We admit, we're a little jealous of the Nicholls State University students who will be able to take a course on Anthony Bourdain, starting next year. 

Okay kids, that's going to do it for now.  We just heard this tune recently for the first time in ages, and it screams, "opening scene of a 1985 Steven Seagal movie."  Here's Ratt with, "Lay it Down," for today's, "Song of the Day."

Thanks for stopping by, everyone.  It was great to see you, as always.  Enjoy the rest of your day, be good, and we'll catch up with you again for more randomness and coffee soon.  Until next time, that's today's Clearing out the Clutter, and we are outta here.
