- The Ticket had the Whataburger voiceover/commercial guy on the radio the other day. He admitted he had never eaten a Whataburger. Attaboy.
- It's a amazing that eight people can be gunned down in a work place and it barely gets a mention on the news.
- TV reporter ruins ice sculpture. That's so obviously a bit, how could anyone believe it's real. (Trust me, millions do.)
- Brett Favre is a drama queen. Rumors swirled all over the place about his retirement yesterday, and he could have stopped it all by simply issuing a statement saying it's true, it's false, or I have not made a decision. Instead he sits back so he can be the center of attention.
- And Favre's set to make $13 million this year with reports this morning that he's been offered a raise to $20 million? Sheesh. No way he's retiring.
- The Ticket had a segment today about being laid off and the collateral damage it causes on relationships and self-esteem. A few emails read on the air were enough to make all of us rethink that hateful "why don't you just get a job at McDonalds?" attitude.
- The population of my house has increased by 400%. To say it has "become alive" is an understatement.
- But setting an eight year up with a paint brush and a small section of a wall to paint is not a bad way to spend part of an evening.
- Devon announced this morning that it is printing money again.
- It sounds like the oil well is now finally dead. And it's amazing that that almost all of the oil never made it the shore.
- TCU's head coach had a conference call hijacked by a wise guy blogger yesterday. Funny.
- I've always referred to the Texas Longhorns as the Evil Empire -- a reference to Star Wars. But this weekend on the radio I heard someone refer to the current Big 12 as the equivalent of the old "Eastern Bloc" with Texas serving as the Soviet Union and everyone else being satellite countries. I smiled because Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as "the Evil Empire" during that time in history.
- Emmitt Smith, who goes into the Hall of Fame this weekend, kept every touchdown ball. Where are they? What is he going to do with them?
- Got to play with an iPad briefly on Monday. Pretty, pretty cool.
- Lohan on the cover of Maxim. Hey, now.
- How to prevent date rape in Dallas according to the new police chief: Women should stop drinking. (If this interests you, you'll probably enjoy this discussion and comments here.)
- A favorite line of The Fan's Greg "The Hammer" Williams: There's nothing more fun, or more irritating, than a drunk woman. (I continue to encourage Ticket Fans to check out 105.3 between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm.)
- Before he was famous, actor Paul Rudd was a party DJ (a video of him working a bat mitzvah making the rounds yesterday.)
