blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Walmart Heiress Arrested For DWI In Parker County.  Maybe I would consider taking a DWI case out of Wise County after all. (Thanks, Keith.)
  • Baseball is entertaining in the post-season when every play matters. (See college football every Saturday.)
  • For those that watched Nelson Cruz throw out Miguel Cabrera at the plate last night, I'd like to proclaim that I stood a better chance of getting to the plate than Cabrera did. That man is slow.
  • It's three seconds long, but the awkward celebration/missed high five between Nolan Ryan's wife and GM Jon Daniels is pretty funny. 
  • Another gruesome motorcycle death yesterday. You don't want to see "dragging" in any news story.
  • Shocker: New NBC/Wall Street Journal poll just released puts Herman Cain in the lead for the Republican nomination. Who will they love next week? 
  • I don't think I understand how tuberculosis works. (New cases reported in Denton.)
  • I've been hearing that Blackberry service has been in and out over the last three days. Other than one 60+ businessman who thought he was showing off 10 years ago, I've never know anyone who has a Blackberry.
  • My accountant yesterday on the phone as I prepared to file my taxes at the last minute (after an extension): "Let me see how much you'll owe . . . one second . . . it'll be . . . no, you overpaid." 
  • Ticket fans only: Anyone else think The Hardline is becoming radio anthrax?
  • You watch closely enough, and there's some uncomfortable flirting on Twitter. 
  • I'm surprised the national media hasn't picked up the Rick Perry "Adios, mofo" line from a few years back.
  • I'm watching the Denton County No Body Travesty Case on appeal. For now, they are just trying to get the court reporter to type of the transcript. (Technically called the "reporter's record" for all of you about to jump on me.)   No rush. We just have a man sitting in prison. 
  • A murder in a home in Keller last night has all the markings of Darlie Routier (wife claims there was an intruder but cops say no) and Cullen Davis (she referred to the intruder as a "man in black").  I tried to look up the house on Google Street View but found out that it is in a high tone gated community. The metroplex news media will be all over this.

With a throw like that from Cruz, it wouldn't matter how fast you were. It was very impressive.

Randy Galloway needs to shut up. He spent hours during the rain delay all over Wash for leaving Young in his spot in the line up. Young got a crucial hit.

Looks like rain again today. Maybe somebody other than Galloway can fill the airwaves.

I'm in total agreement on The Hardline. When did Corby turn into Skip Bayless?

So does the fact that Herman Cain is in the lead mean that all you liberals who said us conservatives didn't like Obama because of his race--will apologize?

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Starting to really agree with you regarding the Hardline. When it turned into a show for Corby and Danny to take over and spend the show criticizing the topic du jour for the day, then it really went south. I liked Corby as a Yuk Monkey. And Danny as an occaisional contributor was great. When they became the stars of the show it got tiresome. Where are the new bits? Where are the segments that involve something other than two of the three bitching about something? Meh.

Lots of companies still buy the Blackberry for their employees. RIM makes a huge sales pitch for the integrated email/phone solution to companies. I think up to a few years ago they had a good case. Anymore, I don't think so.

Post Season baseball is incredible. I am glad that Ranger fans are starting to get the taste. Your analogy of NCAAFB is spot on.

Blackberrys are rountinely used in law enforcement, particularly feds, because the security to crack into them is miles beyond iphone or any other brand. I have a relative with a top secret fed clearance and they won't let him use anything else.

Bet you the no body case is upheld on appeal. Come on, bet me, BG. Oh yeah, I'm anonymous.

to 9:01, no its just you.

RIM made great penetration into large corps with their 'high security' enterprise email client system. just genius marketing at the time, which meant everyone in the company had to have a BB phone if they wanted to get their work email on their mobile. then they got outdesigned by Apple, htc & samsung, so now us corp slugs who want a decent smartphone carry 2, a BB for work and another for personal. RIM screwed up big time just like Nokia... lousy hardware doesn't appeal to the masses.

anyone else find it hilarious that Cain is in the lead? most hardcore repugs I have had to put up with are either closet or outright bigots

Amazing all these rich folks and celebrities don't have the brains to hire a driver. If I hit it big my very first purchase would be a limo, nothing big and flashy, just comfy for 4 in the back, and a professional driver with special security skills.

"I don't think I understand how tuberculosis works..." It works when illegal aliens from countries with bad healthcare (not our fault BTW) flood this country and spread it.

Rangers notes - Cruz Missile edition:
~ Quote of the day (from Wash - during post-game interview): "Thank you, Nelson Cruz."
~ Lots of other runners would have been thrown out on that rocket from Nellie. It just would have been a little bit closer call. Fortunately, Napoli held on to the ball. "Thank you, dirtbag!"

Today's RT girl: is that Mrs. T?
"I pity the fool that don't wear this much gold! Stay in milk...Don't do school...Drink your drugs!"
(tip of the cap to SNL's Saturday TV Funhouse)

You'd think $21 billion would be enough to hire a driver to cart you anywhere you wanted to go after getting your drink on. For the right price (and it's probably less than you might think), I would be willing to drive Miss Daisy Walton around Mineral Wells.

You know how we know that Barry isn't an Aggie? This morning he would have predicted the Rangers would lose last night!

The Ticket: I've always thought Corby was a drain on the show. I haven't listened for about eight years, but back in the day he was a dweeb that thought he was cool. Apparently he still is!
LONG LIVE GREGGO!!

So tired of Joe Buck and the other Fox announcers! I don't care where you are from, give the Rangers the credit they deserve! We want Tom Grieve! Cabrera? Why do you think he hits long balls? He CAN'T run! Napoli was ready! It was EPIC! Such a great game with me yelling at the TV! I don't think I was the only one! They should open the Ballpark tonight for a HUGE ass watch party/celebration! Or Jerry could open Jerry World so we could watch on his TV---it will be the only way a WINNING team will be in his house this year!

It's the republicans turn to put their black man in office.... to try to prove that they aren't racist like the Dems set out to prove last time....

regardless of the issues...if he's got a decent persona... he can be voted in .... just meet the quota

Mike Loucks said...

Come on now Hardline Bashers...

Agreed, the show has changed over the last few years, but i dont think for the worse, if anything Mike is the one who annoys the shit out of me.

I grew up on Galloway and "sports at 6", but i wanna jump through the radio and hit him everyday because he just makes shit up to disagree with his yuk monkey's

And does anyone even listen to the fan? the only way they get me is if ESPN and the ticket are on commercial, and all other stations are playing Taylor Swift or Maroon 5 at the same time!!! the fan is made up of a bunch of ticket and espn rejects ( in some cases both), dallas observer dropouts, and Dumb ass women who wanna be cool and have people "eat their Chili"

Some come on now.... has the hardline jumped the shark??? I think not...

BG you are right as you can be about the Hardline. They went from being my favorite show to a punchout most of the time because of Corby the moron. It's amazing that ratings actually went UP when he became a regular. I don't have a problem with Deep Dish Danny.

Um, TB is spread by an introduction of bacteria into a lowered immune system. African Americans are the highest risk group for TB, next is white then "other".

You can get TB through surgery (common) and they are finding increasing cases from gastric bypasses complications. It is not the messicans that are bringing it over here.

I am pretty sure if you look up the date when TB started to become an issue again, it was sometime around when Clinton finally located his cigar.

In the future, everyone will be the Republican frontrunner for 15 minutes.

RPM said...

The Hardline is a massive powerdown. I'll tune in RAGE just to see if today's the day Greggo melts down. So far, the answer has been no.

The Ticket lost a lot of appeal to me after the Greggo breakup and the way they trashed on him. Professionals would have put it behind them and moved on. Stay classy, Mothership.

I've never know anyone who has a Blackberry.

I will never have anything else. Sure, other phones have some snappy apps and maybe another bell or whistle, but I have never had a complaint about a blackberry, and I've carried one since they were the weird little 4-5 line digitized letters. And unlike an iPhone I can actually use the phone on it. It won't turn off if I hold it next to my head.

If you practiced in a bigger town (I know that's not what you want and this is not intended as an insult in anyway), you'd know hundreds of people with them.
