Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • We learned yesterday you can be an average major league pitcher and still get a deal for $35 million for two years. 
  • The Keller Youth Football League is doing away with the "everyone gets a trophy" concept. Mankind is making a comeback! 
  • I saw most of This Is 40 last night. Verdict: Very, very funny. It'll make you think your marriage isn't quite as wheels off as it is. Or at least you'll feel like you have company. 
  • Mrs. LL went all Bob Vela yesterday and fixed the microwave, the front door lock, and the microwave.  But she almost got pushed to the limit when the Sophomore in the House decided to clean out the turtle aquarium last night (which means she pretty much had to clean out the turtle aquarium, too.)
  • And Mrs. LL kept making everyone wash their hands because, "You'll get salmonella!!" 
  • Did Sean Hannity voluntarily move his Fox show to 9:00 p.m. central or was that a forced move? And with his afternoon talk show, when does he see his kids?
  • Saw some of this last night and couldn't believe I had never heard of the story: "ESPN's 30 for 30's Big Shot tells a bizarre, real-life story about one of the biggest scams in the history of professional sports. The film profiles John Spano, a businessman from Dallas who briefly purchased control of the Islanders in the late 1990s before being exposed as a fraud."
  • Everyone is worried about concussions in football, but how does boxing still exist? Especially when it causes death like over the weekend. 
  • "Ello guvnah" - Fifth Grader in the House as she greeted me for the first time yesterday. 
  • From the Update:  "To be eligible to vote early by mail in Texas, you must: be 65 years or older; be disabled; be out of the county on election day and during the period for early voting by personal appearance; or be confined in jail, but otherwise eligible." I truly didn't know this. You have to have an excuse to vote early by mail but early voting in person is purely discretionary?
  • Also from the Update: There will be a historical tour of Wise County which includes a stop at "the site of Draco." I had never heard of that
  • The Dallas teacher fired for posing in Playboy before she became a teacher is moving to Hawaii. That's a heck of a consolation prize.
