Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • A wrong way driver on the Dallas Tollway again last night. She just managed to get into a one car wreck, however.
  • I'm now generally in charge of running the scoreboard at softball games. I'm thinking about bring an amp and firing up a little play-by-play while I do it.
  • The lead singer of The Band has died. I knew basically nothing about The Band yet everyone else acts like they were a household name.
  • A picture of the bloodied head of George Zimmerman? ABC News thinks so.
  • One of these years, the Main Street Arts Festival in downtown Fort Worth is going to get hit with a major storm that'll send all that art flying over I-30. That wind tunnel effect down there will do the trick.
  • Steve Wariner is playing at the Festival. There was a time I loved Steve Wariner's music. I guess I still do. 
  • It's 4/20. WBAP's Hal Jay said today he had never heard of the drug reference for those numbers.
  • Ousted Secret Service agent posted a picture of him checking out Sarah Palin on his Facebook page. 
  • A little kid ran out onto the field during the White Sox/Orioles game yesterday afternoon. To quote Latarian Milton, "It's fun to do hood rat thangs."
  • I saw where a long ago neighbor -- two door's down -- who I played with as a kid has died. Time for reflection. 
  • C.J. Wilson lost last night. That's the most important baseball news to me. 
  • I bought two American Airlines tickets in February for travel in July. And in the news every day is about bankruptcy, union strife, and takeovers. And somehow I'm not worried. 
  • Got another photo of the Decatur Beggar off of 377 in Keller yesterday.  He needs to remember his roots. 
  • Mrs. LL, coaching third base last night, sent a runner home for a potential home run even though the ball was in flight back to the infield. Runner scored. I was so afraid she'd panic and make the kid hit the brakes, but I guess that's the way aggressive softball go. 
  • That was fast: The parents of the kid who was mauled by a dog two and one-half months ago while they slept (and which gave rise to a great Lari Barager ducking out of the way video) have pled out to probation.

I also lived a couple of doors down from the the neighbor that passed away. As you said, time for reflection. Life is short.

First, Bacon is way off. Those gals probably are high-maintenance, but c'mon...
Your game is based on rating their looks!

Despite the generic nature, The Band is a household name to folks of a certain age. If you were to hear clips of any of their songs, you would be changing your tune!
I did have to look up Steve Wariner because he's not a household name - not in my household.

Hal Jay didn't know the 4/20 reference?! Mmmm...I thought he was the hipster over at BAP. Then again, that doesn't necessarily disqualify him

CJ Wilson losing a game is good news, but the best news is that the Rangers have the best record in baseball, and look awesome. That's an easy distinction for a real Rangers' fan. It's fun and easy to hate on CJ, but you have to get your priorities straight

You should rent Martin Scorsese's 1979 performance film "The Last Waltz" and find out what all the fuss is about the Band. I don't know of any movies featuring Steve Wariner, but I hear he's a pretty fair guitar player. On second thought, you probably won't know any of the other musical heavyweights in the movie, either, since they were big in the 60's and 70's, well before your time.

It is about looks but I can not get over the fact they look like a pain in the butt. They are cute but that is all.

If you are going to run PA along with the scoreboard, you need to have all the appropriate organ music and theme songs loaded in your iPad. I'll be sorely disappointed if I don't hear Wild Thing when your closer gets the call.

What's this? More PROOF to back up Zimmerman's claim? Well......

Of course, the Travon supporters won't believe it. It's simply too hard for them to accept the actual truth in life.

All the news media pictures of a 12year old kid by the name of Trayvon depict a child who could not whip ass on a grown man. Any witness who says he saw this child on top of Zimmerman and slamming his head against the sidewalk is got to be lying.

Wasn't Blind Bacon a blues man?

Zimmerman wound - I've had bigger
on my eye. Think he walks, and should.

Over and under of new niglettes named Trayvon this summer?

Today's girls smoking. Your not

The Friday Random Thought Duo - the Dark haired one on the left looks a lot like Sara Shahi - Formerly of the L Word. Makes me think that is a pic of hers from High School (Euless Trinity) or possibly when she was a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader.

Decatur ISD spent a whole lot of money again last night. The streets of this city are paved with gold.
Thank you taxpayers!
