Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Did you see pictures of I-30 on fire this morning in Mesquite? Yep, a tanker truck had a wreck causing the fuel on the highway to catch fire. I-30 was shut down both ways which we make me want to off myself on a Monday morning commute.
  • I don't think anyone needed to get reprimanded over this billboard.
  • I looked at the movies this weekend and there was nothing worth seeing. Is it just me, or are they just bad this holiday season?
  • Baylor almost beat Tech on Saturday and Tech only has there self to blame.
  • TCU is predicted to play two-loss Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl. That's a lose-lose proposition for the Frogs. Win it and you're supposed to win it. Lose it, and a tremendous season comes crashing down.
  • It's Christmas time again which means we should all buy our spouses a Lexus -- complete with a bow on top of it in the driveway.
  • Tiger Woods has been a media genius. Up until now.
  • And the girl he is allegedly having an affair with (hawt) has hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred. Allred only knows about getting in front of the camera, and nothing more.
  • Great panaramoic view at Kyle Field from the Texas game on Thanksgiving night. (Credit: TV Tan Line.)
  • New Moon won the box office again this weekend. I don't know what they paid those kids, but whatever it is they might have been ripped off.
  • Funny New Moon related poster with some truth to it.
  • Angels & Demons kind of petered out, didn't it? As did the Michael Jackson movie.
  • I've gotten into the habit of going to be early and waking up early --- even on weekends. Old Man Syndrome?
  • I jogged with a big dog on a leash for the first time this weekend. Sheesh. The thing was dragging me down the street.
  • I bet "Cyber Monday" is no different than any other online shopping day this time of year.
  • And someone on the Ticket this morning asked if "Cyber Monday" is the day that we all stalk our exes online. Not a bad idea.
  • The Dallas Morning News had an article yesterday naming the 50 Greatest Dallas Cowboys in honor of the team's 50th anniversary. That seemed weird since I've heard no hoopla over a 50th season. Even though formed in 1959, isn't 1960 the team's first official year since that was when they played their first game?
  • Uh, oh. The Washington State cop killer was granted clemency by ultra-conservative Gov. Mike Huckabee years ago?

If Cowboys played the first game in 1960, this (2009) would be the 50th season.

Your Lexus-with-a-bow comment reminds me of this annual holiday beating: every other ad on TV has that same music from Nutcracker. I kind of like that music - when used for effect and in context - but not a jillion times a day.

heh heh...I said nutcracker!

Tiger Woods (alleged) girlfriend
You might think she's hot...
He might think she's hot...
I think her head was stolen from a wax museum. Which would explain why it appears to be so cold there. They are trying to keep her head from melting. And what the heck is wrong with her eyes? They don't match

There's more than some truth to the New Moon poster. Do the NM moms realize that one of those guys was younger than 18 when that movie was made? There is such a double standard going on
from wiki: Taylor Daniel Lautner (born February 11, 1992)

Seems like TCU should play the loser of the Fla/Bama game. That would be justice, and great football

The guy you mentioned as the Washington cop killer is only a person of interest. As a defense attorney I'm quite surprised you already have him convicted.

I'm not surprised you missed a chance to jump on a republican though. Now if slick Willy had granted him clemency would you have brought it up?

After Huckabee granted clemency, the suspect ended up back in jail for violation of parole. He was released again 3 years later because of a "procedural error" by prosecutors.

8:26 is precisely correct. If 1960 was the first season, then 1961 was the 2nd season, ... 1969 was the 10th season ... and 2009 is the 50th season. Barry, you need to avoid issues which require the application of math.

Did anyone ever find out for sure what this Tiger Wood thing was about?

TCU will play Alabama in the national championship game. Nebraska will beat Texas; Pitt will beat Cincinnati; Alabama's defensive front will shut down Florida.

Nine people were murdered over the weekend in the community that Obammy helped organize.

Angels and Demons has been out for a LONG time. Didn't peter out, but people have already seen the thing.

their instead of there. Where did you graduate?

9:30; I hope your correct!!

TCU is in the same position Utah was last year and they played Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. If Alabama loses to Florida I don't see how in the world TCU would get stuck with Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl. If it happens it could only be the lack of respect TCU has been given for years and another reason for a playoff system. Not to mention the fact Gary Patterson would move on. If TCU plays Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl they'll win and I hope Florida, Texas and Alabama get the crap beat out of them by whom ever they play then see the final rankings and I'll guarantee TCU won't be #1 with a 13-0 record because they don't get the respect they deserve. GO FROGS!!!

Wouldn't that be alleged cop killer counselor?

IMHO - Tiger's alledged girlfriend has a great body but the face of a horse.

Further evidence that no matter how hot our wife / girlfriend is, we males are always tempted by a little stray.

I wonder if he put a club cover over her face....

10:02 - agree! But it's starting to look like everyone's afraid of playing the frogs. BCS doesn't care because we're a small private school. No matter what happens they're #1 in everyone's heart and it's been a great ride! They can kick anyone's butt big time!

GO FROGS!!

COME ON PEOPLE, THERE IS NO WAY THAT NEBRASKA IS GOING TO BEAT TEXAS!!

Tim Tebow is the most overrated player in College Football!! Yea he's a nice christian boy but he's not that great of a football player! They were talking during the Florida/Florida State game about all his records, THEY WERE SEC RECORDS, NOT NCAA records! He's a great guy, not a great player, just another good player!

Whoever tries to lablel people has missed it again. Huckabee will never be considered ultra-conservative. His soft stand on immigration alone would take him from that coveted list.

The random thoughts are boring. The comments are boring. It's monday and i should probably smoke weed for a while then go down and apply for foodstamps or something.

10:35, did you mean Tebow or McCoy?
McCoy was thanking God after the AGGIE game and I truly don't have a problem with that nor am I being sarcastic. But, the way you discribed Tebow is how a lot of people describe McCoy, Christian guy, Good guy, Good quarterback / not great and over-rated. Sorry Longhorn fans!

Any info about the shooting in Chico?

There is NO WAY Nebraska will beat Texas...oops...unless the result is the same as last time they met in the Big 12 title game and everyone said there is NO WAY Nebraska will beat Texas.

I'm pretty sure Allred knows more than just getting in front of the camera, which she just happens to be good at.

HOOK 'EM HORNS! Yall just keep typing your b.s. and we'll see on Saturday night!

Tebow was being described as a great quarterback relating to his stats as a Florida Gator. Colt McCoy has broken an NCAA record this year by becoming the winningest quarterback in NCAA history. If he is just "average" or "over-rated" I guess that was just a fluke, huh?

LET'S GO TEXAS!

BEAT THE HELL OUTTA NEBRASKA!!!!

You don't have to get me a lexus.

I'll settle for Honda or something that gets good gas mileage and looks pretty.

so sick of football....hope I have the tenacity to hang on till it's over again...mercifully, for another year!

Anonymous said...

11:35....how many times have u heard the tv announcers say McCoy is the greatest football player of all time?? none!! BUT, you hear them say that about Tebow ALL THE DAMN TIME!! he's not the greatest, may be the greatest in the SEC but far from the greatest of all time. Guess the announcers think if they say something bad about Tebow they will go to HELL, who knows?

My sister's big Labradors settle down and stop dragging me down the street after 30 minutes or so. She brought them along with her again this year.
