Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts







  • Hey, I don't know what the heck is going on in that photo either. That's either the girl's boyfriend or one of the greatest photobombs in the history of ever.
  • It's National Signing Day which causes me to think: Whatever happen to Max Emfinger who used to be all over the radio on days like this. I looked him up and he's still going but he doesn't appear to be welcome on Dallas radio.
  • And those Letters of Intent are still faxed to the schools (or at least that is what everyone is saying this morning.) I'm guessing most 18 year olds don't know what a fax machine is.
  • There have been a series of robberies in North Dallas of the cash registers of hotels. How much money could possibly be in them? (It's possible the cops got the guys last night after another robbery.)
  • It might end up Rubio vs. Clinton and that would be the Republican's best chance. And Rubio might win. And Fox News is now in love with him. (After dogging him for years on his immigration policy.)
  • I've dogged troopers to no end over the last few months, but I watched a video yesterday of one dealing with a Hispanic and three kids and a wife on Old Base Road and he might have been as professional and courteous as anything I've ever seen. See what that does? If there were to be a trial, a jury would despise me for attacking anything about the guy's conduct even if he made mistakes.
  • Someone mentioned the movie The Ladykillers the other day which starred Tom Hanks in a crazy role with a crazy accent. How that movie is not a cult classic is beyond me because it is beyond funny. (You don't bring your girl to the Waffle Hut.)
  • All young men are still required to register for the military draft (this came up the other day.) Do any of them do it? I've written this before: I went down to the Bridgeport Post Office and registered post Vietnam once I turned 18 and handed my card to the postmaster and asked him, "Is that all there is?" His reply was, "You better hope so."
  • The Fort Worth Law Hawk, who I've dogged before for his crazy ads, might be a marketing genius. Taco Bell is incorporating him into a Super Bowl ad. Then again, it's not like he's running a blog with a bikini girl every morning.
  • I recorded the first episode of the O.J. Simpson "documentary" last night. But I'm not sure I can make it through 10 episodes! There is too much good TV, and I hardly get to watch any of it. How do people watch all of this and work and hang out with the family and keep up with news and get exercise and do yard work and commute?
  • And I'm not sure I knew about this: A Howard Stern disciple's crank call to ABC's Peter Jenning's in the middle of the most tense part of the O.J. standoff and Al Michaels getting on the line to tell him he just got scammed.
  • Yahoo will cut 1,700 jobs. There may never be a more missed opportunity in the history of American business than Yahoo standing idly by as Google took over the Internet in the early days. 
  • A brilliant LSU kid on the college edition of Jeopardy yesterday didn't know that this year's Heisman Trophy winner was from the University of Alabama.

I believe the owner of Fox News is an open border guy....that would certainly make Rubio the logical choice. No problem....we no longer have a definitive "American" culture anyway. Theodore Roosevelt was right again.

If you don't register with Selective Service, you don't get federal/ state financial aid. Not easy going to college without that. You also can't get federal/state employment or clear a background check.

You can also go to jail and be assessed a huge penalty, but I have no idea when the last time that was actually prosecuted.

So, yeah, guys still do it. It's the law. I read yesterday that a couple of members of congress were proposing that women be required to register, too, since all combat positions are now open to women. Why not?

if the trooper was professional and courteous, why would you have a reason to attack his conduct?

That phony phone call was and is one of the greatest moments in television history- I saw it as it was happening, and my husband and I have been quoting it to each other for the last 20+ years. We are huge Stern fans since the early 90s, so that just makes it even better!

When I was in college, I wouldn't have known where ANY Heisman Trophy winner was from 'cause I didn't care. Still don't.

Because he can politely violate your rights.

I bet the heisman winner doesn't know who the winner of the Jeopardy College tournament of champions is either.

The RTG pict today seems strangely life affirming and gives me hope. Thanks, Barry.

I never registered with Selective Service. But I joined the USCG on my 17th birthday.

After Trump falls off and fades into a memory......he will come out and say he was never a real candidate and was only "trolling" (or something of that definition) the media.

He's not a real candidate and never was... he is just playing his power card to stir the pot to get away from all the political correctness..... And it's been a good thing.

Saw in the local paper, the Dem's "drafted" someone to run for Chairman of the local party, guess they got tired of the Fascist running the local party.

I definitely think women should be made to register for selective service. They should also be jailed if they get pregnant to avoid a draft.

Did I miss it, or did Barry devote some time and attention to inquiring how our A/G lost control of a Grand Jury and somehow managed to get the anti-abortion film making folks indicted earlier this year. Given the A/G's proclivity for missteps, perhaps Barry felt like that was the equivalent of kicking a man while he is down.

LSU is in Louisiana and The University of Alabama is in, I believe, Alabama. Two different states last time i looked.

I agree Bear! Just like the Statue of Liberty is in New York and Liberty Bell is in Pennsylvania! Nobody from New York should be expected to know where the Liberty Bell is located, or vice versa, especially not on a trivia show!

3:23 -

Pretty sure there's a difference in knowing trivia about things that are historically significant that do not change on an annual basis and knowing who got the trophy for being college football's "best" player in any given year. So the kid didn't know who won the Heisman - we all have gaps in our knowledge.

Hey 3:23, let's keep the comments in-state. I can't be expected to know where "New York" or "Pennsylvania" are, if they even exist at all.

Just pointing out that not everyone follows sports like it is the end of the world. I believe that the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell are a little more important in this world than the Heisman trophy winner.

Sports are inconsequential in the real world. Merely a distraction from what really matters in life.

Perhaps it is time to forget the "MILFs in Bikini's" web site.

One day you're nice to Troopers, other times you've dogged them. Both times they got paid. Six figure salaries at that!!

Trivia = details, considerations, or pieces of information of little importance or value.

Easily the best phony phone call ever.
