Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of one of the greatest National Championship games in history: Texas vs. USC. Who would have ever dreamed that so much would change?
  • Everyone is telling me to watch Making a Murder on Netflix because it will make me insane. (But the petition to have President Obama pardon the guy has a problem: It was a state crime and a state conviction.)
  • Johnny Manziel may be one of the most Wheels Off individuals in NFL history. He was in Vegas on Saturday and Deadspin reports: "Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie. Manziel introduced himself as 'Billy.'"  Maybe he suffers from Affluenza?
  • I'm stunned how someone would actually threaten me. Especially when they have so much to lose.
  • One of the most mundane things I do as a lawyer is a driver's license hearings. They are important but boring. But with a ton on new lawyers on the scene, the drama of "cross examining" a witness at one of these hearings seems like the most important moment of their lives. Buddy, you are in front of an administrative law judge who doesn't care about your dramatic tone of voice.
  • We now have a 21 pound cat in the house, and I'm guessing he will never leave. I can almost hear Hotel California playing when I walk in. 
  • I watched Donald Trump give a speech in Massachusetts last night. The guy is a political genius. And I'm learning what he is doing. Be a rebel. Be unconventional. Say things no one else would say. Go all out with no limits.
  • I'm hearing great things about that new Quentin Tarantino movie. 
  • There was a police chase last night in Dallas which involved drugs. "The 2 lbs of meth seized by DPS agents in NW Dallas has a street value of $100,000. 5 suspects in custody, 1 is still on the loose." Two pounds is 32 ounces which is 896 grams. So the police value the meth at $111.60 a gram?
  • Even though TCU's win in the Alamo Bowl was great, it was horribly called by play by play man Brian Estridge when he yelled, "Remember the Alamo!" as the game ended. 
  • Fox 4's Clarice Tinsley (she's the gal who reads those goofy Facebook responses on air) just posted a picture of her standing by a gold bar dispensing machine in a 5 star hotel in Dubai.
  • I'll say it again: Mrs. LL with a drone running the controls is comedy of biblical proportions.
