Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • That's UT Quarterback Colt McCoy's girlfriend, Rachel Glandorf, on the left.
  • I saw a guy in the Wise County district court yesterday representing himself in a divorce/contempt proceeding against his wife. He won. He then proceeded to strut out of the courtroom but smashed into the back door when he tried to open it the wrong way. A local lawyer/funny man sitting next to me said, "He had an almost perfect exit until the ending." We then decided that he had to have contemplated, at least for a moment, moonwalking out the door.
  • UNT coach Todd Dodge decided to drug test all his players and 15 of 86 came back positive for "recreational drugs" (read: "marijuana"). What a shocker, 17% of football players at North Texas smoke dope. Go test the general population and compare.
  • But Dodge kind of scared me when he said the players were going to take a drug education course since "maybe it will save their lives." Reefer Madness has broken out in Denton.
  • I was certain I had lost weight since my belt finally was feeling loose. Then I got on the scale this morning and found I had gained two pounds. That is weird.
  • Oddest music purchase I've made in a while: Marilyn Manson's The Beautiful People. It was pointed out to me while the Longhorn band drum section played it at various times throughout the OU game.
  • The First Baptist Church of Bridgeport utilizes Flickr. Me loves me some Flickr.
  • Story of my life: Prison warden's wife meets inmate. Inmate meets wife. She helps him escape. They live together on a chicken farm in Texas for 10 years. Both are captured. Inmate dies. Wife goes back to living with warden. Wife now on trial. (Man, this is perfect for the Dallas Morning News' "True Romance" section for Sunday. Link.)
  • With my hair getting longer, I look like a madman when I wake up in the mornings.
  • We should have a live video feed on election night of the guy that always posts, "America has not, and will not, ever elect a man with the name of Barack Hussein Obama." Now that would be entertaining.
  • And we should have a live video feed on 12/12/2012 of the guy who always predicts the end of the world on that day.
  • Oddest Las Vegas result: You probably aren't aware of it, but the Game Five of the World Series has been put on hold for two days due to rain. It's tied 2-2 but, get this, if you bet on Tampa Bay to win the game, Las Vegas has already declared Philadelphia the winner and that you lost the bet. Money. Gone.
  • One of the first comments on the Bono post below was a very funny one of "isn't that Cher's ex-husband?" It was only a matter of time before someone, failing to see the joke, came along to correct him.
  • Texas A&M has decided to pay the bonfire victims from almost a decade ago. I'm still stunned that any good Aggie would sue A&M. Shameful.

That's the best Colt McCoy can do? Eh, who cares. He's just another Longhorn QB that won't amount to a hill of beans in the NFL

Buckwheat said...

Well, looks like the Faggies have yet ANOTHER tradition now. Well WHOOP!

Regarding your weight, your belt has probably stretched a little!

Buckwheat said...

Reckon ol Colt will turn out as pitiful as the last longhorn messiah has at Tennessee? And what's with longhorn QB's names? Colt & Major. Who's next? Winchester and Captian?

People who say "me loves me some ..." drive me crazy. It makes them sound ignorant.

"Texas A&M has decided to pay the bonfire victims from almost a decade ago. I'm still stunned that any good Aggie would sue A&M."

- There are good Aggies?

We should have a live video feed on election night of the guy that always posts, "America has not, and will not, ever elect a man with the name of Barack Hussein Obama."

- The guy??? You mean the tens of thousands of people who say that (or the millions of people who hope that)

Barry ... I want a "Live Feed" of Denny Crane election night when I take his 1000 coins and Obama wins. Then I want another "Live Feed" when the monies are donated to either Green Peace or an Abortion Clinic ....

Buckwheat...speaking for a whole host of Longhorn fans...I can only hope that Colt turns out as well as VY did for UT. Let's see, a National Championship in the Greatest College Football Game Ever. If Colt can duplicate that on January 8, 2009, that's fine with me.

As for his NFL career, I don't realy care. Sure, I'd like to see him do well, but it's not too high on my list. BTW, I guess that you have forgotten that VY was Rookie of the Year and the talk of his ultimate NFL failure is still a little premature. If you'll look his team is undefeated and there's a good chance he'll be back on the field before the season's done. Don't rule out the possibility of VY being the MVP of the Superbowl.

Nevertheless, should Colt bring another NC to UT, he'll eat & drink free in Austin for the rest of his life.

As for the next great UT quarterback, his name is Garrett Gilbert, currently enrolled at Lake Travis High School.

Twas the Night Before Elections 2008

*'Twas the night before elections*
*And all through the town*
*Tempers were flaring*
*Emotions all up and down!*
**
*I, in my bathrobe*
*With a cat in my lap*
*Had cut off the TV*
*Tired of political crap.
**
*When all of a sudden*
*There arose such a noise*
*I peered out of my window*
*Saw Obama and his boys*
**
*They had come for my wallet*
*They wanted my pay*
*To give to the others*
*Who had not worked a day!*
**
*He snatched up my money*
*And quick as a wink*
*Jumped back on his bandwagon*
*As I gagged from the stink*
**
*He then rallied his henchmen*
*Who were pulling his cart*
*I could tell they were out*
*To tear my country apart!*
**
*' On Fannie, on Freddie, *
*On Biden and Ayers!*
*On Acorn, On Pelosi'*
*He screamed at the pairs!*
**
*They took off for his cause*
*And as he flew out of sight*
*I heard him laugh at the nation*
*Who wouldn't stand up and fight!*
**
*So I leave you to think*
*On this one final note-*
*IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM*
*GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!*

Um, I correced the Bono/Cher question. It WAS a question, wasn't it? You think it was meant to be a joke? why? I'd bet there are LOTS of people who still associate BONO with Cher and don't realize this Bono is another guy. Soooooooooo....I corrected this one. Glad you thought it amusing, tho. Happy to give you a bit of a smug giggle.

I'm with Barry on this one, 11:24, the poster was joking.

Anonymous said...

Ok, Ok! I got it now...the poster was joking. Got it. Yep.. joking.

Anonymous said...

Re: Bono
Yeah, how could someone BE hanging out if they're dead? I also assumed the poster was being facetious.

And somebody is actually criticizing the way Colt's girlfriend looks? Okay, hoss, let's see what kind of stuff you drag into the bedroom. And who says he's going into the NFL?

Buckwheat: The next QBs UT has lined up are named Stymie and Alfalfa

"I'm still stunned that any good Aggie would sue A&M."
Just because the dead kids were faithful Aggies, doesn't mean the parents are. And while it may not compensate for the loss of a child, who wouldn't sue the college if it was responsible for their child's death?

"With my hair getting longer, I look like a madman when I wake up in the mornings."
How about a picture? Is it booking-photo Nick Nolte in nature?

"Then I got on the scale this morning and found I had gained two pounds."
Look behind you, chief

"..."maybe it will save their lives." Reefer Madness has broken out in Denton."
He probably meant that figuratively, like "not ruin their lives".

Barry:

I am more than a little disappointed in your "how can a good aggie sue A&M" comment. I understand and I thought you had the depth to understand as well. There was negligence, likely gross negligence, causing death and serious injury. I am a big supporter of A&M, but they should be accountable, and they have done same by agreeing to settle.

It doesn't make you a bad person or a bad aggie to want to see a wrong corrected and future aggies protected from dangerous practices. You should not have characterized any victim or their survivors in that way.

A) The Phillies lead 3-1, it's not tied 2-2.

B) Colt's girlfriend is a Baylor sellout.

Wordkyle is the one I'm worried about. I figure he's head will explode when Obama is declared the winner next Tuesday night(unfortunately). Maybe Wordie should spend Tuesday evening watching the election results shows on the TV in the ER waiting room at Wise Regional Health System(weird name for a hospital).

12-21-2012 is a Friday, I looked it up in my electronic Gregorian calendar. What do you say we have a Liberally Lean from the Land of Dairy Queen Blog Happy Hour at Frilly's....say....5ish? The topic of discussion could be "The next projected date for the end of the world as we know it". Music will be supplied by REM.

The GAME is tied 2-2 as of now, but Vegas has already declared Philly the winner of the game per their house rules.

The SERIES is 3-1 Phillies.

10:08, Everyone knows you've got it bad for Mzchief. I just checked and she hasn't made a comment in 3 days, you dumbass.

Anonymous said...

1:32 you guys REALLY are as dumb as I thought you were. You just re-assured my thoughts of last night when our friends announced they were voting for the almighty OBAMA. How do you people do it? How do you ignore all the facts that are presented before you about this joke of a human being? From your post above you don't even believe actual OBAMA statements from his Hypnosis Conferences. Enlighten us, please.

that pose makes their butts look big. possibly not wise county big but at least hey now big.

Bravo 1:32!

I agree. The sun will still come up on Wednesday, November 5th- I promise. We are going to be fine.

Don't be afraid. Fear is a weakness. We will have another election in four years if this one doesn't turn out the way you hoped. Fear not, this is the U.S.A. and we will be fine.

I wonder if Obama's aunt Zeituni knows anything about his birth place. She is living in a housing project in Boston. I think Obama should spread his wealth amoung his relatives. Isn't that what he told Joe the Plumber that we should do.

I know someone whose daughter died in the bonfire tragedy at A&M - saw her this past weekend. Too sad. How does one go on after losing a child? It's just not right.
