Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • "Standup comic John Pinette dead at 50; acted in Seinfeld finale."  That headline reminded me of what a horrible episode that was. 
  • I'm not sure if I'm more surprised that three McKinney teens have died of synthetic LSD or that it is called an "N-Bomb."
  • America: Screen shot of Bill Clinton, George W, Jason Garrett and wife, Tony Romo and wife, and Jason Witten at the game last night.  
  • Louisville beat national champion UConn three times this year (once by 33 points). SMU beat them twice. Even Houston beat them. 
  • Taylor Swift and Jerry Jones' grandson, Spaulding, take  a selfie.
  • President Bush and Jerry Jones' grandson, Spaulding, take a selfie.
  • I threw the softball with the Sophomore In The House about three years ago. Back then, the chances of her throwing it into the ground two feet in front of her were great. Yesterday we played catch again. She dang near knocked me down.
  • The Family Unit turned on me last night for calling Prince Fielder "fat". I revised it to "Big Boned."
  • Ticket Fans: Nothing makes me laugh as much as Jake Kemp's prank phone calls with drops of George DiGianni and now Norm Hitzges. (Can't find the link.)
  • I don't know much about golf, but when a Decatur sophomore wins the district tournament by 26 strokes, that gets my attention. 
  • I haven't seen Mike Judge's Silicon Valley on HBO yet, but it's on my radar.
  • First term Louisiana "Congressman Vance McAllister, who campaigned for office last fall as a devout Christian and devoted husband and father, was caught in video surveillance two days before Christmas passionately embracing and kissing one of his congressional aides." Here's the gal. Not bad. 
  • If I was a great college athlete, I'm don't think I'd leave for the pros until my eligibility was up. What do you think Vince Young would give now to return for his senior year at UT?
  • I watched A Football Life episode last weekend on Jimmy Johnson where, near the end of the show,he philosophizes about having "quality time left". It was funny because as he said, "In the end, it's not about the money" as the documentary cut to a clip of him in his "Three Rings" boat. 
  • "This NCAA Championship brought to you by Ameritrade, Jeep Cherokee, and Godzilla." -- Actually heard last night.
