Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I know most of you hate all this talk about college football, but it has one huge advantage for any school you care about: Advertising. How much free national air time has the initials "TCU" received over the last couple of months? Tens of millions of dollars? More?
  • I can't imagine having to drive on 114 into Dallas every morning but this morning the "freeway" was shut down both directions at FM 156. Beating.
  • I don't know anything about the National Finals Rodeo going on in Las Vegas but after Round 3 (they tell me), these were the current standings: 1). Trevor Brazile, $137,339. 2). Clint Robinson, $129,698. 3). Tuf Cooper, $101,368. Aren't #1 and #3 from Decatur?
  • News you may not have heard about: 2 men and 43 horses died in a barn fire in Ohio over the weekend.
  • News you may have heard about: Three girls (16, 14 and 12) in Terrell were hit by a car and killed while crossing a newly constructed road.
  • I tried to watch the UT/Nebraska game at Pappa G's (is that a Vegas Vacation joke?) off Rufe Snow since I had never been there. Verdict: Fail. No parking. No seats. Smoky as a California wildfire. I'm out after two minutes.
  • Ended up at a dive sports bar/billiards place on down the road. Very wheels off crowd (was that a drunk Carlos Santana?) and a great place to watch a great game.
  • I've always liked those dancing Gap ads. Glad they're back.
  • Yesterday I saw about a 7 year old walking around Academy Sports with a big tablet and pencil making his Christmas list.
  • Tiger Woods needs to book an appearance on Oprah. Fast.
  • I now watch all NFL games with limited interest.
  • 50 Best Protest Signs of 2009 (Language warning.)
  • I was at Uncle Julio's in Grapevine on Friday and, as I was walking in, I noticed the driver of a new big extended cab pickup (dealer tags) decide to back into a parking space. A Mercedes was behind it. Scooch. Brake. Scooch. Brake. Scooch . . . . (Crushing sound.) Oh, my.
  • And that's kind of a high tone Uncle Julio's

Just a few comments here;

Yes, one and three are from Decatur.

TCU got screwed! I was so glad to hear two out of three announcers on the BSC selection show last night say, TCU was the best team in the nation. For those of you who disagree, they have the #1 offense and #1 defense in the nation, check the statistics.

Texas Longhorns suck!

And, what do Texas, Florida and Cincinatti have in commmon?

They're all three
O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D !!!

Go Frogs!!

End Results - Alabama- #1, TCU - #2
Florida - #3, Texas - #4, Cincy -#5

Yes, #1 and #3 are from Decatur! We are headed to Vegas Wednesday! Can't wait!!!

If any of the top 4 Big 12 or SEC teams played the TCU schedule they would be number 1 in offense and defense as well...

TCU probably would have been one of the top 4 Big 12 teams as well....maybe

Nebraska got screwed, one second left? My A$%

I love all the TCU / UT / UF / AL / yadda, yadda, yadda...gives all these people who probably didn't even go to college, something to bitch about! Everyone talks like they attended these schools. There are fans, and there are these people.

10:34; sorry to disappoint you but I did go to school at one of the four you mentioned. Truthfully speaking I believe your comment was some what snobbish and a little judgemental. Actually, you yourself must not have anything better to do than to post an accusatory comment. My true belief is who cares!! It's a blog! You need to find something else to worry and become upset about. Have a great day!!

"Coach Mora, what do you think about a playoff system in college football."

"What's that? Ah -- Playoffs? Don't talk about -- playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs?"

You are biased in your opinion, you can tell your attitude by your tone.

Every single commentator at the game, on ESPN, and during the BCS bowl bids said that the refs made the right call. There was one second left.

I saw it with my own eyes. Saw the ball land, looked up and saw the 1 turn into a 0.

Lucky for us? Yes, 1 second is way too close to play it? But right call? absolutely.

Yes, TCU is good this year. But how good? We won't know since they are not matched with one of the teams from the big conferences.

TCU fans - quit whining.

Speaking of smoky bars - when is the Texas legislature going to get with the rest of the advanced world and ban indoor smoking - everywhere? Apparently some 300 colleges have now banned even outdoor smoking on their campuses.

double fake millions of dead smokers

Can you imagine the tea-sipper whining if the last play was ruled0:00? No one to blame but Colt.

Longhorns finally play a top 10 team. O-V-E-R-R-A-T-E-D!!!

I am laughing at how irritated the UT fans are at the TCU fans for "whining". Anyone remember the whining done by Mack Brown and fans last year when the BCS didn't work out in UT's favor? You horns are a piece of work. Roll Tide!!

Yep......Big 12 refs did good.

Colt almost lazied the chance away, but he didn't.

The teasips are the largest bunch of whiners ever created. Their supposed "entitlement" gets tarnished if they don't get their way. Bama will kill them this year and I can't wait for all the excuses ut will dole out.

Longhorn = large example of a little prick.

Was it just me or were the two groomers that died in that fire something less than a footnote in that article compared to the stupid horses that died?!

So Tiger is up to 6-9 flings, who cares?

However, I was surprised to see that he hooked with that Perkins chick. I can't see Tiger going to Perkins, plus she's a dog. Appearently Tiger should be checking out the 'ladies' on this blog.

Congrats to Britney, sounds like she's engaged again.

Roll Tide!!!

1:59; I have no idea what you're attempting to say. What I said is right there in black in white. Maybe the problem is you actually don't know what you meant. Your comment of "Ha! Ha! it worked", what are you refering too? Or, are you only playing the Democratic Party game (1:59) where you're asked a question, can't respond, so you answer a question by asking a question. I believe I'll take a nap now and leave the difficult thinking to you.

Well many people do it everyday, including me! I commute everyday to Grapevine and traffic on 114 was terrible today, as eastbound traffic was backed up to 287 from 156.

I have not whined once about the Longhorns! Nothing to whine about. Just wanted to let ya know that if Texas would have lost to Nebraska I would have supported TCU all the way...they are a team from our great State of Texas. Why on earth would any Texan support a team outside of the state against a team from our state. That's kinda messed up!
