    My dad is at the upfront, and I asked him if he saw Trump's announcement. This was his response:

    "Yes. Too close for comfort. The whole thing was a little awkward and absurd. Nobody gave a damn really."

    He's still not getting his Indy pace car ride back.

    Wait ... some people thought Trump was serious about a POTUS run and not just being an attention whore?

    Wasn't Trump leading the polls? Smart country we live in.

    He hasn't been here in over a year.

    And as frustrated as he was, and as stubborn as he is, I don't expect him to be back anytime soon.

    I don't know how old you are, but the toupee learned how to play defense from Nolan Richardson at Arkansas.

    That's what's funny about all of this too.

    While Donald wanted to string this out, NBC had already signed him for next season and beyond and had to sell the damn show.

    That's why he had to make the announcement now and not wait until the current season was over.

    If anything Trump is a showman. I don't think that he ever intended to run. For a month or so he got a lot of free advertising to promote the Trump brand.

    Those guys started their own highly successful Web site for sports journalists.

    Time to let it go.

    The only thing is, I think he damaged the brand. That's what I don't get about any of this.

    Involving your brand in politics is never a good idea. Associating it with birtherism was a terrible idea.

    What has Trump ever actually suceeded in other than leveraging the hell out of his holdings and being a publicity whore? His casinos go bankrupt so often he has a reserved space at the A.C. courthouse.
