Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • So you didn't like Tony Romo? Prepare to miss him.
  • Having your collar bone broken due to a krillion pound guy falling on you cannot be a pleasant experience. 
  • LeBron James new commercial. Not bad. Cocky, but not bad. 
  • Jerry Jones after the game last night: "There are 10 games left and we know how many those are." I love Jerry.
  • Mowed my lawn for the last time last night -- thought I'd take advantage of the high winds. 
  • Newspaper watch: The Star-Telegram's daily circulation fell over 8% and that's just over the last six months. The Morning News claims that circulation has increased but it has been caught lying in the past about those numbers. 
  • Somehow my walk around the block last night ended up with me keeping my eye on five kids on bicycles and a dog. Sheesh.  When I told one kid to be careful around a storm drain, he told me, "Don't worry, I'm too fat to fall in."  Good point. 
  • I utter the phrase "Be careful" about twenty times a day now. 
  • Pennsylvania mom charged with killing how many infants?
  • The formal sentencing of Steven York yesterday gave rise to the most packed courtroom since the Sharon Green trial. 
  • And never before have their been so many people from Bridgeport in there at one time. 
  • The 2nd Grader in the house wakes up in full fledged Cheerful Mode. Jumped out of her room this morning yelling, "Hello!!!!!"
  • It dawned on me yesterday that I had never driven on I-30 any further east than Rockwall. 
  • When I went through Greenville I thought about the sign they used to have that read, "The Blackest Soil, The Whitest People."
  • Saw a commercial truck in Fort Worth with a large "Arborist" decal in the back window. I wonder if anyone has ever yelled "baby killer!" at the truck?
  • Paris Hilton went costume shopping. Hey, now.
  • Naked man ran down a Dallas street yesterday. Wasn't me. 
  • Anyone else have a little of an "ugh" factor knowing that Cliff Lee is nothing more than a paid, short term mercenary?  But, then again, that's exactly how baseball go.

Immediately when Romo went down I thought of you Barry. What a prognosticator you are.

According to Uncle Wade, all the air went out of the team when Romo got hurt. Really? Exactly what position does he play on defense? As usual, Wade is fully engaged in his fight to win the Super Bowl of Stats.

I don't think that it's a forgone conclusion that Cliff Lee is gone at the end of the season. When Cuban pumped up the bidding at the auction, the ownership group somehow found another $80 million to close the deal. If the Rangers when the Series, I think that they may have a good chance to resign Lee.

If you pay that mercenary well enough, he'll be YOUR mercenary for the length of his contract. You can say the same thing about players on almost any team. If you signed him for $100M you still wouldn't be spending as much as the Yankees. And they're not in the World Series...but our team is!

Okay, you're making fun of Jerry for his Wash-like bad grammar, but he aced the math portion of the test...I think
It's like saying "How much do five pounds of graphite weigh?" You've answered the question before you even finished asking it

I have a picture of the Greenville sign hanging in my office. (It's "Blackest LAND, Whitest People")

Jerry Jones after the game last night: "There are 10 games left and we know how many those are." I love Jerry. --But those 10 games may feel like eleventy krillion!

"Don't worry, I'm too fat to fall in." Good point--Everyone likes a fat kid with a good sense of humor, he will probably own a car dealership or furniture store one day!

"I wonder if anyone has ever yelled "baby killer!" at the truck"--Every time the truck enters the WC!

Is Cliff leaving just like the Rangers will lose in the 1st round of the playoffs? Do you track your accuracy on sports predictions? I'm sure it's wonderful but it never seems that way. Who could blame Cliff for leaving for a $200,000,000 payday from the Yankees but don't discount what Greenberg and Ryan will try to do to keep him.

So... would you trade Justin Smoke for a World Series? An AL Championship? A division series win?

I think the answer is yes to all 3.

Hope we keep Cliff Lee, but if we don't, it has already paid off.

I think that I've solved the Jerry mystery. He is a long lost relative to Bagdad Bob! What troops? What bombs?

Not surprised at the drop in circulation of the Star Telegram. I personally quit reading it several months ago. It is so far to the left that I came full circle. The headlines are so far off from what the story is about, it's humorous. Presently liking the DMN a lot better.

The FWST is right wing as all get out. If your not in a family that sells cars or on the AMR board of directores, you are a "have not".

House of York said...

Mmmm....why is it that "leftist" are so envious of others? I don't get it.

3:07 you can sell cars too or be on the AMR Board of Directors if you choose. There's no reason to be so jealous.

3:07...Further proof you never really read the FWST to begin with!

3:43 sounds like a Wall Street walrus.

I bought some Greenville city stationery at an antique store once. It had the phrase, "Welcome to Greenvile, Texas. Home of the blackest LAND and whitest people." Below the phrase was a picture of the courthouse.

I bought some Kenya stationery at an antique store once. It had the phrase, Welcome to Kenya, Home of the blackest half black and half white President Of The United States. Below was a picture of the White House.
