George Boardman’s blog: No one except for “fish” is commenting

I posted a response that Kamala Harris sent to me about the Kavanaugh case on Facebook (like the one here), and it received 21 “likes.” Shawn Garvey responded: “She responds! Love it! I never can get an acknowledgement from DiFi!”

To George, it was a “big whoop.” Except no one commented on George’s blog except for “fish.” George’s column at The Union.com — whose commenting interface is Facebook — doesn’t even get 21 “likes.”

The 21 people who “liked” my post all signed their real names. “fish” is a fake name from a troll who launches personal attacks but never has anything interesting or intellectual to say.

Most of the recent comments on George’s blog come from George himself.

I don’t understand the blog either. As a newly minted 75-year-old (his words, not mine), he takes a keen interest in high school football. Three of his last five posts are about local high-school sports. Go figure!

  1. And Boardman gets it wrong — again! On his “blog,” he predicted: “Bear River over Colfax by 5 points”
    But the score was Colfax 41 — Bear River 14. His prediction wasn’t even close.
    Go George! ROFLOL.

  2. George Boardman’s latest column in The Union seemed to go over like a lead balloon, even among his own demographic. Russ Steele — a senior himself — wrote: “George, please check yourself into the nearest senior care facility before you hurt yourself.” So why is he a weekly columnist for The Union?

  3. Goofballs now want to post here under: “bingotaqular@bingo.bingo” Sure. “Youhavetoomuchsparetimeonyourhands@goaway.goaway”
