Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • It's Labor Day and once again I prove I'm the hardest working man in show business. 
  • I was in charge of school drop off and pick up last week. I felt like Michael Keaton in Mr. Mom every single time. It's so confusing. 
  • Hey, I dog Game Wardens and DPS Troopers all the time, but I'll give them props for wrangling this 12 foot alligator in South Texas during the flooding. There's no way I'm doing that.
  • Price gouging is a weird concept. Everyone hates it as do I, but isn't it the ultimate Supply and Demand concept? 
  • Robert Jeffress leading a prayer over Trump may be the sign that the end is near. 

  • A (an?) SMU football commit dies in his sleep
  • It's Labor Day. Remember, you can't wear White Supremacy beginning tomorrow. 
  • This is at least the third time he has done this.
  • Fox 4's Clarice Tinsley on Friday pronounced the town of Vidor as "VEE-door". Seriously, how do you live in Texas for that long and make that mistake?
  • I stumbled on a Star Trek movie this weekend which I had seen before but had no memory that Kim Cattrall, of Sex and the City fame, was in it. 
  • I flipped over to ESPN on Friday night to see if there was a college football game on but instead saw this from the USA/Costa Rica soccer game. (USA lost, by the way. # MAGA)
  • I've followed former Baylor wide receiver K.D. Cannon since he left school early after being a tremendous talent but a little bit of a nutcase. He didn't get drafted. The 49ers then signed him as a free agent and paid $45,000 only to be let go about a week later. The Jets then signed him but cut him after two months, and then he was signed by the Rams. They let him go this weekend. 
  • Someone explain this to me: It was announced this weekend that girl from Bedford who was found dead in a landfill in Arlington was killed with a hammer, allegedly by a "friend." So how on God's green earth can the police say all of this time, "The public is not in danger"? The friend was taken into custody. 
  • Sports note under the radar this weekend: I didn't know NFL teams could not trade a draft pick for cash. So what did the Cleveland Browns do over the off season? They acquired a second round pick from Houston and took on Brock Osweiler and his contract with no intent of keeping him on the team. They cut him on Saturday. The deal cost them $16 million which we now know is the value of a second round pick -- that's all they wanted. (And to put it in perspective as to how NFL players gets screwed, the Cowboys will pay their second round pick $4.2 million over four years assuming they don't cut him.) 
  • How much would you have bet in Vegas if you had been told beforehand the Longhorns would have a punt return for a TD, an interception return for a TD, and a blocked field goal return for a TD against Maryland? I would have bet the house.They lost.
  • But that loss wasn't as bad as Baylor losing to Liberty or the Aggies blowing a 34 point third quarter lead against UCLA. It's the geographical triangle of Sports Pain. (And check out the plaintiff's lawyer and Aggie board of regents member rant basically calling for Sumlin's head of a figurative stake.)
  • "I hear the Coast Guard saved ... almost 11,000 people by going into winds the media would not go into." - Donald Trump over the weekend (proving, once again, he is a moron.)
  • The Messenger's high school football special section had a "Game of Throws" theme. Fox 4 sports promoted a segment last night named, suspiciously, "Game of Throws."
