Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Derek Holland doing impressions during a World Series game proves to me he is a knucklehead. There's a time and place. That was neither. 
  • C.J. Wilson wasn't good and wasn't bad. But he was in charge of perhaps the most important pitch in Ranger's history when he had the bases loaded and a full count late in the game. He got out of it. 
  • I won't be there tomorrow, but on Thursday I should be in a location that will allow legal sports betting. Considering the Liberally Lean Sports Predicting Curse, would it make you nervous if I bet on the Rangers in Game Seven and then posted a picture of the betting slip?
  • Let's get La Russa's reaction if I were to consider placing a bet on the Cardinals
  • Mrs. LL and I were going somewhere casual this weekend and I put on a button up shirt, khaki shorts, and tennis shoes. Then I got to hear, "Who am I going out with? Larry David?"
  • The Ticket has been merciless in replaying Fox 4's pre and post game coverage of the World Series. But it is blooper gold.  
  • Modern Family gal twitpics herself in a bikini (which has been floating around since last Friday.) Hey, now. 
  • The property in Arlington once home to Fantasy Ranch is being foreclosed upon
  • WBAP's Hal Jay this morning on the "occupy" movement: "Just go get a job. Get a job." I don't mind the opinion. I mind him expressing an opinion when there is absolutely no chance that he has spent one second trying understand the movement. 
  • I've got a feeling some baseball organizations are tired of doing the "God Bless America" performance during the seventh inning stretch but there's no way they are going to be the first ones not to do it. 
  • I went to a wedding this year of a gal who had only seen me twice at Halloween parties. She told me she didn't recognize me without mascara on. 
  • For those who thought my "Rick Perry Is A Birther?" post was a non-issue, you might want to turn on the news. It is everywhere. 
  • Did you catch that a Mineral Wells teacher has resigned after being placed on leave for handing out a "Are Roman Catholics Christian" pamphlet?  That would be a better story if she were suspended for handing out, "Are Muslims Going To Heaven?" pamphlets. 
  • For you old-timers who never thought you'd see the Rangers come within one game of winning the World Series, take a look at the old scoreboard in the long gone Arlington Stadium.
  • What does this mean from the Update regarding road improvements on FM 51 in Decatur?:  "And the center turn lane will be restricted in front of Cici’s and Wendy’s, allowing only right turns onto 51 while adding a third lane northbound lane of 51 through the 287 service road interchange."

I wonder why the lamestream media that carries Obammy's water would be concerned about a non story like the Perry non-birther story? Were they ever concerned about him saying that the Muslim call to prayer was the most beautiful sound in the world, or how he ended up with a Social Security card from Connecticut?

Re: Derek Holland- For the masses, baseball is so dang boring and slow-paced (especially at night) the nets try to break it up some. (yawn)

Ask a Protestant if they understand what Luther wrote about "faith alone."

It means the center lane on 51 in that area will have a median. In other words you won't be able to drive north on 51 then turn left across the southbound traffic into CiCi's, Marketplace, etc. No more turning left out of Sonic trying to go south.

They were asking Derek Holland to do his impressions...lighten up, Barry, good grief!! Personally, I thought it was funny...

I was told awhile back that HWY 51 will be like University Dr in Denton. Right Turns only with a few cross overs.

Triple Fake... said...

Confusing - they're saying no left turn into Wendy's/Cici's - and no left turn out of those places, either. But there are already signs up for that second part. But then, there's very little that makes sense from our local TxDOT office

The Mineral Wells teacher is lucky she resigned before getting fired for just being ignernt. Roman Catholics are the Original Gangstas of Christianity - and have not varied much since their inception
Then there's the whole religion in schools can of worms. Did she really think she could get away with that?

I would like to see the results of an online poll of people who would not recognize you without mascara on

Rangers notes - one more win edition:
~ LaRussa's reaction to Murph's hit up the middle: was the ghost of Lee Harvey in the crowd somewhere? His head snaps back like he just took a bullet from the Carcano
~ I think everybody is being too harsh on Derek Holland for his schtick last night. He admits he's goofy, and he's just a kid and he wasn't pitching last night. He also said afterward that when it's time to get serious, he is/does/can be.
The problem that needs examining is CJ Wilson takes himself too seriously and doesn't realize how flaky he is (CJ: "I could land the team plane if necessary." Michael Young: "That's the craziest thing I've ever heard. I'm looking for a parachute!") Line heard just now on the Ticket: "If CJ landed the plane, it would bounce five feet in front of the runway." Funny
~ Barring some monster performance from another player, Napoli is the MVP
~ According to Fox4 last night, Mitch Moreland hit a mammoth shot into the uppder deck

Isn't it amazing that, within only one week of Tiger Woods crashing his Escalade,
the press found every woman with whom Tiger has had an affair during the last few years?
And, they even uncovered photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc.!
Furthermore, they not only know the cause of the family fight, but they even know it was a
9 iron from his golf bag that his wife used to break out the windows in the Escalade.
Not only that, they know which wedge!
And, each & every day, they were able to continue to provide America with updates
on Tiger's sex rehab stay, his wife's divorce settlement figures, as well as the dates &
tournaments in which he will play.
Now, Barack Hussein Obama has been in office for almost three years, yet this very same press:
• Cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors;
• Or find any of Obama's high school or college classmates;
• Or locate any of his college papers or grades;
• Or determine how he paid for both a Columbia & a Harvard education;
• Or discover which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the 1980's;
• Or even find Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis on racism.
They just can't seem to uncover any of this.
Yet, the public still trusts that same press to give them the whole truth!
Don’t you find that totally amazing ?

Holland is a funny goofball. And it didn't seem to hurt the team, since THEY WON the game. Go find something real to bitch about.

Just heard that a local girls basketball coach recently had her high school team fall backwards off a 12 ft. ladder as some sort of team building excercise? Can anyone confirm?

Remote Controller said...

9:44- Seriously? Do you just read the comics for your news.

Obama has plenty of things to criticize him about. Stop sending out misinformation, or just flat out lies.

Read, man, read.... Then when your done reading... Read some more. Then check your sources of what you just read.

Firefighter Ted said...

Regarding your "God bless America" thought. We don't sing it up here at Wrigley Field. Maybe only on special occasions we will sing it. Instead we sing "Take me out to the ball game." We don't need to overcompensate, because we don't feel guilty that we might not be great Americans. We are already at a game of the Great American pastime, in a cathedral dedicated to the Great American pastime, rooting for a perennial underdog (which is the second great American pastime.) We aren't scared of McCarthy here.

Yep-Holland had no business doing that schtick during a game. He SHOULD have been in the dugout doing the traditional, time honored practice of giving one of his teammates a hotfoot. Or perhaps peeling the cover off of a baseball and unraveling it to the core.

Well said, Ted.

wordkyle said...

Gosh, I wonder why the story about Perry could be everywhere in the media? Probably getting more coverage than Solyndra, Fast & Furious, the dubious CLASS Act, ACORN's involvement with Wall Street protests, half a billion taxpayer dollars to make cars in Finland, unemployment, or even the racial agenda in Obama's Department of Justice. At least the media have their priorities straight, huh?

Remote Controller said...

10:33- is a "I follow anonymous comments" fan, as an anonymous comment poster.

All you have to do is produce to me the facts about the refusals, cloak and dagger B.S. that 9:44 is posting. Then I will believe it.

Btw, not an Obama fan, but I am a against people who post ignorance.

What is there to understand about the "movement"? A bunch of hippies complaining because they didn't strike it rich in the dot com boom, who have no job because they'd rather sit in the park, give each other hugs and defecate in public.

The left should be very careful with whom they associate. These "protestors" do not represent mainstream America, and I don't believe that mainstream America wants to associate with them.

Sorry you have to fly out of state to do some sports betting. You can thank those in our nanny-state government for controlling what we do. And sending this sort of gambling money to Nevada, oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

Can anybody tell us what the Obama Admin has done that has actually benefited America?

And, a revenge kill and the death of a freak whose country we think we can control doesn't mean a thing so don't beef that crap up either.

In other words, tell us why he should be elected into office again.

Last night, at the Ballpark, we sang "God Bless America," and then "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", then danced in the stands to the Cotton-Eyed Joe.

FUN TIMES

I was fortunate enough to go the game with family members. What a great way to spend an evening. Not just because it was the World Sesries, but because the Rangers organization does such a good job of involving the crowd and making it great family entertainment, at all their games.

Did you know that when the National Anthem is playing, every Ranger employee stops whatever he/she is doing, and pays homage to our country.
God Bless America!

10:26, we sing Take Me Out to the Ballgame here too. It just isn't televised. Maybe we're just a little more patriotic down here.

(Although BG is right--it's a bit of a beating.)

9:44 AM You talk about no classmates remembering Obama etc...this is bogus and long ago discredited.


You seem to be very interested with his past. In reality we know more about him than many other presidents because HE WROTE A MEMOIR in 1995 when he was only 34 You can even read about when he was in school and his romantic involvements.


I read it years ago; you might want to read it as it will answer a lot of your questions:

Liz, I bet you really liked the part where he said the most beautiful sound in the world was the Muslim call to prayer. Why would you even be interested in reading a book about someone that hadn't even hit the national stage in politics? He thinks so highly of himself that he had to write two autobiographies.

9:44 makes more sense than 90% of the posters on this blog.

Secondly, there is nothing to 'understand' about a bunch of lazy-ass kids wanting someone else to pay the bills so they don't have to w-o-r-k. I agree with anyone who tells them to shut up and go get a job......and I would add "or starve".

Remote Controller said...

11:52- Google it. Just because you don't agree with them doesn't make them any less of an accomplishment.

BTW, can "you" name me specific accomplishments of any former president that helped this country? No opinion needed, just a matter-of-fact accomplishment.

The BIG difference is the CDC may recommend a vaccination….Governor “Good Hair” was attempting to have State law require it. (By the by…there was a probable fiduciary connection between the drug manufacturer and the “Guv.”)

I don't really drink kool aid. I haven't since I was a kid.
Probably though you are making a reference to Jim Jones and his unquestioning followers.I question and research many things. The e-mails that go out on the internet are most often bogus.
Alot of people are touched by Muslim call to prayer.If the President made that statement and I don't know if he did or not, but I would have to agree...........It is a beautiful sound going all over a city through speakers. And your point to that statement is............
I read his book some years after he wrote it when he was getting some political attention nationally. I was interested ,so I read it.

Understanding the occupy movement....

I am in debt up to my eyeballs because I borrowed a ton of money that I can never, ever, earn enough money to repay, to go to a college or university where I partied and may or may not have attended a class taught by the professor's G.A. while the liberal shithead worked on his government grant research project, and obtained a worthless degree. Now I want to blame someone else because I am remotely qualified to work at the local Braum's working at a disadvantage because I have almost zero work ethic.

Yes, I think I understand the movement.

That's what I get for dodging the tough math classes that might have helped me to figure this out before it was too late.

If the movement had a clue, they would be demanding their money back from the colleges and universities.

The GOP debates are like American Idol in reverse. Instead of eliminating a loser each week, they add one.
