Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The Wise County case of Motorcyclist vs. Fed Ex went to the jury yesterday afternoon. They went home without a verdict and will return this morning. I haven't watched a second of it.
  • The Denton drunk-dad-shoots-daughter case goes to the jury today with a range of punishment of probation to 20 years in prison. I predict 13 years. 
  • There was some controversy over a low pre-game flyover at a college game earlier this year, and then someone found footage of an insanely low flyover at involving TCU in 2000. Man, that plane is lower than the top of the press box. (Begins at :16 mark with three views.)
  • Another Fort Worth police officer arrested for DWI.
  • Got word that an ex-Boyd coach was arrested yesterday for online solicitation of a minor. (Hey, jail, fix your online inmate directory!)
  • Cliff Lee last night: 9 innings, 0 runs, 12 strikeouts.
  • I've been working with the Second Grader In The House on how to hit a softball. Never knew I would get so much satisfaction of now seeing her regularly getting hits in games. 
  • Somebody pointed out yesterday that the Tarrant County Medical Examiners site listed a double fatality motorcycle accident near Alliance Airport on April 9th. I wonder why that didn't make the news? Edit: As many pointed out, it did make the news.
  • Googling "fixing a toilet" is not a high point in one's life. 
  • We had an impromptu test this morning in the house as to the cause of the sinking of the Titanic. All passed. (It's the anniversary of its sinking. All together now: "Jack! Jack!")
  • PGA tour member Kevin Na shot a 16 on a par 4 hole yesterday in Houston. Yep, one hole. Hello, record books.
  • If you were on Camp Bowie yesterday in Fort Worth (like I was) you would have been buzzed by the Blue Angels practicing for this weekend's air show.
