Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • I'm not sure what I think about it: Channel 8 went after Southlake's new quarterback last night. They made it a lengthy lead story with the the issue being whether his family has technically moved to the town from Oklahoma. (I'm guessing the highlight was his dad being tracked down gassing up his boat in Oklahoma and throwing a bag of ice at a cameraman.)
  • And Southlake's athletic director reminded me of the nervous Martin Short skit from SNL when he was portrayed being interviewed by 60 Minutes. (I just looked that up and that's a 1984 reference. Good grief.)
  • Speaking of Short, his wife just died
  • Fox 4 Frenzy: They went bonkers at 5 and 6 about a "kidnapped" child from a Dallas elementary school. The story didn't make sense at all. At 10, they announced the child wasn't kidnapped at all -- just the victim of mistaken identity.
  • A marijuana case was tried in the County Court at Law in Decatur yesterday. Looked like the issue was whether the defendant actually lived in the house where the Devil's Lettuce was found.
  • That's four trials in the CCL in the last two weeks. I think the breakdown is two guilty verdicts, one acquittal and one directed verdict for the defendant (by a visiting judge.)
  • Enrollment at Chico ISD this fall is down almost 10%. Wow. 
  • Texas Rangers' financial statement released yesterday: They spend $234,000 a year on baseballs.
  • Beating: Waking up in the middle of the night, hearing wonderful rain, then hearing howling dog in the backyard caught in it. That caused me to stumble out of bed and pick the wet mutt up and put him temporarily in the garage.
  • While waiting on the school bus yesterday, some people looked at me like Chris Hansen on Dateline
  • While you slept: At least 46 killed in Iraq as bombs explode all over the country. (Flashback to "Mission Accomplished" photo.)
  • It's amazing that the skydiver who got caught on a Ranger Stadium light pole last night didn't get hurt.
  • John McCain won the GOP nomination for Senator last night in Arizona. Same verse, same as the first. No wonder "hope and change" sounds so good.

I have been hearing rumors about things at Southlake for years. Graduated from Springtown and always heard rumors in the late 80s that Southlake's star RB actually used to attend Springtown until Southlake gave his father a job just so he could play for them.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of things like this going on in HS Football that we just never hear about.

"No wonder "hope and change" sounds so good." Really? Really?? Maybe it sounded good in 2008, but now -- ?

I hope for change in the white house asap! A little change back to where we actually had a competent leader who has the country's best interests as a priority would be really nice.

Brett Shipp reminds me of that kid in kindergarten that volunteered to write down the names of all the kids that talked while the teacher was out of the room.

Looks like Southlake "bought" themselves a QB. That athletic director is a smirking joke. If UIL does the research and follows the rules, this kid will "move" back home to Oklahoma, sit out his senior year and be "signed" to some college to begin his real pro career.

What, nothing about the Bedford private school denying admission for the girl with lesbian parents? I guess it is ok for Muslims to be anti-homosexual just not Christians. I wonder if liberals will jump to the defense of homosexuals or Muslims when the first gay couple tries to become a member of the Cordoba House?

11:06 am, Bridgeport would probably still beat u with all the mexicans and trailer park kids.

neways, i bet theres a bunch of parents scrambling in Southlake today trying to make it legit that their athletic kids are eligible to play, haha.

i heard Breckenridge was doing this back when they were good. with the oilfield booming there, they would offer athletic kids parents oilfield jobs to get there kids to play.

I hope y'all got a chance to watch Channel 11 this morning. Teresa Frosini in a bright yellow sweater doing the news and Jane Slater in a pretty orange dress doing the traffic. Man, it doesn't get any better than than that. Those two raised the heat index way over 100.

Don't remember if if was KXAS or another, but one of the stations had a report on the 10:00 news last night about a Collin County woman who, y'know, pleasured herself, loudly, in the shower, while her 20 month old was either in the shower with her or in a baby basket just outside. The husband, who was not enthralled with such escapades, made recordings of these episodes, some audio of which was played in the report. They are, surprise, now divorced.

Another report had UFOs somewhere near Archer City, caught on film/digital media by a infrared deer camera. No, the deer aren't infrared, the camera is. There is a ginormous UFO detector antenna about 12 miles from Archer City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Force_Space_Surveillance_System), so maybe it's just some random nocturnal [infrared] emissions.

And lastly, channel 5 had the gall to suggest that drinking iced tea, y'all, can be bad for you and cause you kidney stones.

What is it, sweeps week? Amon Carter must be rollin' round in his grave...
