Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • The reaction to Tiger Woods arrest for DWI where alcohol was not been involved is pretty fascinating. Some think it's not as bad. Others think it is worse. I follow stuff like that like a hawk. 
  • So it's the thing now where little leaguers get "championship rings" (even when they don't win)?
  • That crazy "bounty hunters" story that left three dead is beginning to make more sense (kinda). They were from Minnesota looking for a guy wanted in Minnesota. When I said bounty hunters were, in essence, a myth I should have qualified it by saying there is no reason for a fugitive from Texas authorities to be the focus of a bounty hunter. Alternatives are readily available. 
  • "Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James said 'being black in America is tough' in response to news that Los Angeles police were investigating a racial slur spray-painted on the front gate of one of his homes." Let's check in on local radio host Mark Davis' response: 
  • I don't know anything about this story, but you have to love the scoreboard in the background when a coach is claiming he was fired for something other than his performance. 
  • KXAS/Channel 5 News runs a commercial about two investigative reporters and references a large "call center" to get tips. The commercial then cuts to a phone bank where I bet there are 20 people shown on screen. There is no way that exists. 
  • The villain in the new Pirates movie is the same villain as in No Country From Old Men and the bad guy (who appeared briefly with a thumb drive) in Collateral
  • A former Bridgeport resident is withdrawing as counsel for a former Baylor football player in a pending criminal case in Waco.
  • Comey is coming.
  • Former Fox News star Megyn Kelly, now with NBC, will interview Putin tomorrow. Delicious. 
  • ESPN has given Lee Corso, 81, a long term extension.  Over the last two years he has exhibited mass confusion on Game Day. I'm surprised that network, who is making cuts left and right, would do that. 
  • The Softball College World Series begins today. I could watch it over major league baseball any day of the week. (The Rangers' game on Memorial Day lasted 3 hours and 48 minutes.)
