Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • Fox News demographic watch: Mike Huckabee's show last night was from Branson with special guest Tony Orlando.
  • Lots of complaints about the Decatur players conduct during Friday nights game. Legitimate or just haters?
  • The beginning of the Penn State/Nebraska game was pretty moving but whoever/whomever led the spontaneous prayer needed to look at his watch. 
  • How in the world did Texas Tech beat OU in Norman a few weeks back?
  • The young hairdresser who was found in her burning car in Dallas a week ago has always been said to be a murder victim. Yet the police say she was alive before the car was set on fire. So exactly how do they know it was a murder?
  • Almost ever story on the home page of the Dallas Morning News web site this morning is behind a paywall. It started off at about 50% but it's become worse with each passing month.
  • Jason Garrett sure does like to say "We'll have to look at the tape" a lot.
  • Mrs. LL survived her Girls Night Out although I'm not sure she's eager to do it again. 
  • Decatur's Trevor Brazile won his 15th "world championship" in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association this weekend, but I'm not sure how that is different than an "all around" title which he holds eight of. 
  • I'm not sure how a woman got shot six times in the back in Dallas yesterday and survived
  • I already paid a guy to put up our Christmas lights. And he's already done it. I'm not getting on that roof.
  • A kid from Rhome, Texas started at quarterback this weekend for UNLV. Unfortunately, the team lost to New Mexico which had held the longest losing streak in the country.
  • And it's a little hard to understand how a guy accidentally left his six month old child in its car seat in a barbecue parking lot in Roanoke yesterday. 
  • The Family Cat is pretty much status quo but over the last week she's decided she needs to run from one end of the house to the other at the speed of light. And she's so fat she sounds like a dog when she does it. 
  • I heard Sister Christian on Saturday night and realized I can't help but think about Boogie Nights and a Chinese guy with firecrackers when it comes on.
  • You knew it was a matter of time before they would start attacking the judge who set the $100,000 bond in the Jerry Sandusky case.

Couldn't help butt notice the ink on this girl's "cheek". Something tells me she'd be fun to hang out with.

There's areason the Rhome kid is playing out of state at UNLV. Every school in Texas knew his dad way too well.

The one good thing about Sandusky is that he never speeds through a school zone.

Legit or haters? Answer in Saturday's blog re games from an Eagle football Dad.

Guess those flags/ejections were done be haters.

Wonder how come no one has tied this in with the Sandusky scandal, DA chooses not to prosecute missing
I bet when it all comes to a close it is tied into it somehow, happened in 1998 he refuse to act on the charges then disappears in 2005

Weekend football notes:
Pro -
~ Romo is back to his old form. Was he out of his flak jacket for the first time since the injury? If so, then I attribute his performance to that. If not...???
~ I don't know how, but I was not highly annoyed by Phil Simms calling the game yesterday. He seems to be toning down the Simmsiness
~ Always nice to see Tom Coughlin maintain his bewildered old curmudgeon persona during a Giants' loss
College -
~ a disappointing Friday night of football was salvaged by TCU on Saturday, with an equally exciting game. Pachall is coming close to filling those giant clown-sized shoes left behind by Andy Dalton
~ TTech deserved to lose just for having those dumb-looking uniforms. What was that weird pattern? The bastard love child of an urban camoflauge scheme and a mobile app scan? It should have been abandoned on somebody's doorstep. They took the classic look of their black-and-red uni and totally 21st centuried it up

I thinks it's a little of both. the boys showed their asses but you will always have the haters even if both teams had won.

Can't believe your favorite Fox News Network let NBC outbid them for Chelsea Clinton.
Fox did bid, didn't they?

@9:14...its called camo! It was in support of veteran's day and the wounded warrior program. I like what they do for support of the program. Look at Maryland's helmet and uniforms...they are outrageously ugly!

I have a friend that is close to the investigation of the woman shot six times in the back. He said it was an attempted suicide.

Skippy, You could get a job at MSNBC. They are the best at sensational journalism. The woman was shot 3 times, not 6.

You don't see Trevor's dad at junior rodeos anymore. I wonder why?

Taylor Barnhill brother of Brittney Barnhill famed softball pitcher at Northwest a few years back.Family name is etched in Univ.of Arkansas as in Barnhill Arena where they play basketball. Both kid good people and athletes, Dad is a bit over the top in his actions without a doubt.

How's that Mike Leach firing working out for Texas Tech???

BG, if a person was alive when her car was deliberately set on fire, how is that NOT murder? And that's not even taking into account what was done to her before the arson that caused her to be unconscious.

looks like it worked a little too well. All three phases of their game were practically unseen

I'm not disparaging the purpose of the change, just the appearance of it. Why didn't they sew on patches or something? I'm tired of teams thinking they have to trick up their uniforms. Rarely does it look better than before

She was drunk, she pulled over and parked in a secluded spot to sleep it off. Cigarette fell on the seat, seat smoldered, she died of smoke inhalation (according to autopsy), car caught on fire.
