Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Mrs. LL was very confused and very mad about the NFL overtime rules. (She's used to the college rules.)
  • The halftime was sponsored by Alfa Romeo? I had no idea they still existed. 
  • I finished the 30 for 30 on the XFL. Vince McMahon and Donald Trump are the same person. 
  • And Tommy Maddox was a big player in the documentary. Does he have a chance at the Bridgeport job?
  • Speaking of Trump, in defense of Putin's killings his response was "You think our country's so innocent." I actually agree with him about something. 
  • And he called a federal judge, appointed by W, a "so called judge" this weekend. 
  • BagOfNothing found a Trump Executive Order Generator
  • You always hear commercials this time of year refer to the Super Bowl as "The Big Game" because the NFL will come down on you hard for trademark violations. But didn't the NFL try to trademark "The Big Game" a few years back. I ask only because I saw a lot of Fox and ESPN folks referred to it as The Big Game which I wonder if they were directed to by the NFL to eventually get the trademark.
  • Lady Gaga kind of hot? Yep.
  • I had no idea Morticia  Addams of The Addams Family was in the Ten Commandments. Edit: Make that Lily Munster of The Munsters. (I think that's an understandable screwup for a Monday morning.)
  • I have a book by Art Briles. This is the inscription. I cannot tell you how sad this now makes me. 
  • I was told there was a "Drug Checkpoint Ahead" sign in Bowie on 287 on Friday. Anyone have a pic?

They are always using a drug checkpoint sign there. They set it up so that people get stopped in front of the high school, a drug free zone.

Yvonne de Carlo was Lily Munster, not Morticia Addams. Morticia was Carolyn Jones. (Wait a second. Did I just get baited and hooked??)

Yvonne De Carlo was in several films. She is in McClintock with John Wayne.

So you feel sad for a man that recruited thugs and covered up rape? Got it.

I can agree that are country is not "so innocent". Countries are run by people who make mistakes. But Trump was using the observation to defend Putin. He is constantly trying to defend Putin. If he was defending a long-time ally that would be different.

I have a picture with Tom Cruise before the Oprah couch jumping incident and the moment when he called Brooke Shields crazy and espoused the supremacy of Scientology.

He was an icon from my teenage years. Hard to look at it the same after all that...

BG, I am glad you have finally seen the light on Briles. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, after all, and now that the facts are rolling out, he's going to look dirtier and dirtier.

Second best part of the game was the crowd booing Goodell so loud that you couldn't even hear him.

On his Twitter page Michael Beschloss posted a photograph of Vince Lombardi following the first Super Bowl game. Lombardi is surrounded by reporters and one prominently featured in the photo is none other than Ted Dawson who did the sports at KDFW-TV (now known as Fox4) in Dallas.

And now you know the rest of the story....

FYI....

Alfa Romeo is still big over in Europe. They just haven't been here in the US.

Fellow BU grad here again. My book is inscribed "Always Believe." At that book signing several years ago, I shook Briles hand and thanked him for everything he'd done for the university. Ugh. I'm so disappointed in him, his staff, the university administrators involved, and especially the BOR who have handled this very poorly. The whole situation is sad for everyone involved...and as alums we're involved too unfortunately. This weekend I tossed a team poster and magazine covers featuring Briles. But I'm keeping the great memories I made before the fall, like when my husband and I ran out on the field like a couple of kids after the miracle win over TCU at McLane. All of us who support Baylor (and I don't mean just the football team) have to live with this, deal with this, for ourselves. Ironically, I guess I do "believe" that we will eventually get past it though it will be a long, long road.

Really odd was the commercial about a movie and the depiction of a woman being beaten. Wow.

I'm going to do something that really pains me. I'm going to defend Barry. He didn't say he felt sad for Briles. I took it he is simply sad about the whole situation.

I sure hope the Waco and Baylor police and that idiot Abel Reyna get theirs before this becomes a distant memory.

Bridgeport is gonna get whoever the dipshit with money wants. Hell we may get dude that loves melon, carp and has big soup coolers!

10:54, Just what in the Hell do you think you "have to live with"? To pretend like you are any part of a victim in this is absurd. If more people would have demanded accountability instead of sitting back and hoping to keep the wins coming like you apparently did, we would have put an early end to the scandal. Instead, information has to trickle out through lawsuits months and years later, and the school will be far worse for it.

But I'll be sure to send some thoughts and prayers your way, cupcake. I know it's been so hard for you to hear about one of your idols getting in trouble. That's got to be far worse than the women who were raped, or even gang raped, while Briles fiddled.

That guy lying under the umbrella to the left of the RTG is certainly white. I mean Whitey McWhiteson white. He might need SPF 263 to keep from burning.

I'm sad for Briles. I wish our society allowed people to learn from mistakes and start over. Unfortunately we label people for life and bury them forever.

I am certainly glad Comrade Trump has spoke up to make the case for Putin and Mother Russia.

But one question: if Trump is busy defending Russia, who is supposed to be defending the USA? Just wondering.

I hope Steve Bannon will drop the idea of having all the top staff wear jackboots. I really hate making jackboots.
