Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • Great Denton book in photo.
  • I was a below average athlete but I still  re-live one football play when I was a sophomore. I knew exactly what was going to happen -- a quick pass to a wide receiver that I had cheated up on as a cornerback -- and it happened exactly like I envisioned it. I was just a second to late.. Why do I still think about that?
  • The Kids in the House are now becoming witty and funny. I wasn't prepared for that.
  • My joke line to Mrs. LL has always been "They grow up so fast."  I'm beginning to regret that. 
  • My commitment of not watching a single second of a Mavericks game is still intact.
  • RG3 is in a bad way.
  • A bizarre flashback yesterday. The Kids wanted to measure our living room (who knows why) so they took out the tape measure and got after it.When I was in fourth grade our class did the same thing and discovered it was 30 feet wide. I've used that standard forever. I guess that's why I told the Kids to "remember that number".
  • There is not a JFK show that I'm not enthralled by.
  • About 15 years ago I had the chance to buy an original AP bulletin (the thing that rolled off of a printer) of the JFK assassination for $10,000.  No way, I thought. I regret that now.
  • I ran across "Panic In Needle Park" this weekend. Pacino is fantastic even at a young age
  • .Mav's coach Rick Carlisle gave a terse interview a couple of nights ago and then "jokingly" called it a "Popovich" impersonation. Make no mistake: That guy is a jerk. A 100% jerk. His attempt at humor was last second damage control which, sadly, the public bought. 
  • I don't think I'll ever own a home which is worthy of  being included in the  "The Tour of Homes" and I'm ok with that. 
  • The "knock out game" may be the most horrific thing I've ever seen.
