Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • A woman's body was found in a freezer in Mineral Wells. Police Chief Dean Sullivan said, “We’re treating this as a possible homicide.” I now picture the chief from The Simpsons.
  • Johnny Manziel has hired a couple of lawyers out of Lubbock El Paso and, although their reputation is outstanding, they sure project "country" by their photos
  • "Public tribute for Kidd Kraddick set for August 15th at 5:30 p.m. on the AT&T Plaza outside the American Airlines Center." Outside? In this heat?
  • Mark Cuban's brother, "a non-practicing lawyer", has written a book about how wheel off his life was.  "I became what I thought I had to be in order to fit in to that crowd — a drug-using, drinking, obnoxious club-hopping douche bag." 
  • I had no idea that Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad also had the recurring role of the dentist on Seinfeld.
  • Fernando Cantu of Bridgeport was found guilty of a lesser charge of negligent injury to a child yesterday in Decatur. Make no mistake, that's a huge defense victory. I've heard the guy has a ton of support from west of the Big Sandy.
  • NBC is going hard into soccer by obtaining the rights to broadcast the English Premiere League. Its sports channel is basically running informational shows right now on what it is and who you might want to cheer for. I got a little sucked in last night. (But from what I can tell, that twenty team league has only four teams that are capable of winning it.)
  • Randy Galloway will retire from radio at the end of the year. I've found him nearly unbearable to listen to for the past decade. 
  • A couple of days ago I made a reference to Take It Easy by The Eagles. Yesterday, the Fort Worth Court of Appeals issued an opinion in a civil case that had this line in the beginning: "On November 10, 2008, Wipff was the conductor for a train traveling from Winslow, Arizona, to Seligman, Arizona." 
  • Here's the crazy Facebook story on the cover of the New York Post.
