Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Dez Bryant balks at the concept of rookie hazing by refusing to carry Roy Williams' shoulder pads. Good for him. (But there is a heck of a split of opinion on this based upon radio chatter this morning.)
  • That Mineral Wells girl is still missing. That is not promising.
  • "Bring your dog day" to the Ballpark in Arlington doesn't look to appealing to me. At all.
  • Miami Heat Dancers tryouts.
  • I found free "Video On Demand" on my TV system which, after looking around, included Season Four of The Wire. After watching four episodes of it, I'm prepared to back off calling it the greatest drama ever after Season One.
  • And this week will be another year in my streak of not going to The Wise County Reunion.
  • Let's have a nice lunch at a NYC patio restaurant. Wait! Look out for that flying chair!
  • Watched a little of The Jersey Shore last night on MTV. Are all those reality shows the same?
  • I've got two pleas this morning where defendants' are going from bond to short prison sentences. Man, I hate doing that but it's the only realistic option.
  • Paris Hilton on a boat. She's still got it.
  • Cowboys open training camp and it's Big 12 media days this week. Good times.
  • One bird caused Kings Of Leon stop a concert over the weekend. They don't make bands like they used to.
  • Painted, mowed, and cleaned on Saturday. Didn't move much on Sunday.

Roy Williams doesn't deserve the respect of someone allowing him to haze them. If it had been Whitten, Crayton, or Austin, they might have a beef.

"Paris Hilton on a boat. She's still got it."

Please! She never HAD it!

If it was Michael Irvin instead of Roy Williams, the razor would be coming out. Remember camp at Wichita Falls?

Dez not carrying shoulder pads means two things. One, mistake to draft him. Not interested in team chemistry. It's all about him, and he has to pay no dues since he's so special. Two, he'll end up with worse than carrying shoulder pads. He'll be begging to carry shoulder pads when his car ends up full of cheeseburgers or missing four tires or something.

- Hazing doesn't create a team mentality, it makes team members, who've been hazed, live for the day they get revenge against the jerkwads who hazed them.

- The NYC cafe fight is what happens when hoodrats make the scene and mix with civilized folks.

- Paris Hilton sure does look like "She's still got it." She still looks like you'd get something you couldn't wash off if you stood too close to her. Hilton gets credit for not buying inflat-o-tits.

It's probably more about Roy Williams than Dez Bryant. Roy was the star receiver in Detroit, but around here he hasn't got any cred, because he hasn't proven he can handle it. I'll wait to see what else happens, with others on the team hazing Bryant.

I don't get the dog day at the Ballpark, either. What's in it for the dogs...I mean other than finding some new places to stick their noses, and new places to leave land mines? They don't have any idea there's a game going on. It would be funny though, if they had a dog day at a Cats' game

I gotta agree with the Propagandist about Paris Hilton. Disregarding her reputation, I think she looks better than the girl in today's pic. The first thing I thought (surprising myself in the process) was: "What the heck were you thinking, woman? That just does not look natural."

Do yourself a favor and skip Jersey Shore.
Time. Waste.
They're getting paid to drink, hook up, and be mooks. They would be doing all that for nothing if there were no cameras around. There's no shortage of stupid, shallow, irresponsible people. These types of programs validate their behavior. The folks who populate these shows need to be sterilized as a condition of their contracts. Otherwise, we are heading toward Idiocracy

I agree, dog night is a bad idea. I predict dog fights and a dozen or more dog bites on fans.
Having shown dogs for years and having to walk with a dog on a lead into venues with a couple of thousand dogs and several thousand people, I know how much training and socializing you have to do to prepare for that. I doubt if your average Ranger fan has that kind of preparation.

10:30, carrying pads is not "hazing". Neither is having to stand on a table and sing your college fight song. And NO athlete who's gone through freshman dues EVER hates or wants revenge; except if it leads to more fun and sophomoric goofing off. That's all it is.

9:38 = Hilton is a 9 I seen the movie and she can act too.

How has the Reunion pushed on these 130 years without you?

The media is blowing this Dez Bryant thing way out of perportion, its freaking crazy they are making such a big deal out of it, next thing you know they will fine Dez for not carrying his pads. I wouldnt have carried his pad either, not until he proves he's worth that contract and can actually do something on the field. i understand that hes a rookie and they get hazed, but would u wanna be hazed by someone who isnt worth a crap? the best players should do the hazing, not the worst

10:30 love your inflat-o-tits comment! I agree totally...natural is always an improvement over store-bought!

Reunion is really for Decatur folks anyway.

It would be even funnier if they had a cats day at a Cats' game

The reason that Roy needs to carry his own shoulder pads off the field is simple. Roy has trouble hanging on to the football and needs practice holding on to something on the field. LMAO

Reunion has heavy Decatur folks, but several BOYD, Paradise, etc... all but B-port. Not too much B-Port.

Too bad, too. Could be a really unique thing to entire county if everyone would just put away petty differences.

I agree with Propa, Paris has it, and if you're with her, you'll probably catch it, too.

Am also against the store-bought boobies.

Do they drink beverages at Reunion?

I understand your skepticism but the Ranger dog day was actually a hoot. Bow wow!

The reunion was fun back in the day, but I'm so over it!

Why is Roy still there?They would be better off with T O.Williams will never touch his records.

Dez may be good but is more than likely overrated. Seems to be a trend that Jerry tends to pick the ones with an attitude bigger than their abilities. I could be wrong but usually when you have a new guy who starts acting like he's the center of the team before the first snap of the season it just usually ends up T.O. ish, some ability but no where near enough to cover up the attitude. Like Dez didn't have to go thru things like this in college and like HE didn't do things like this to the new guys in college. Team spirit is lacking with that one.
