My Turn

Since none of those scooters in the Sports Department will let me do it, this is going to have to be my avenue. Here are my football picks of the week 1- high school: 1. Holliday vs. Windthorst = Windthorst in a big one 2. D.Hill-Jarvis vs. Hirschi = Hopefully Hirschi 3. Old High vs.…

$10,000 tip

Who in their right mind is crazy enough to give anyone a $10,000 tip? Well it just happened. In Hutchinson, Kansas, at an Applebee’s (considering a career change at this moment) a “regular” customer gave a women bartender a $10,000 chunk-a-change recently. The customer’s identity is being disguised at the moment, but was he feeling…

Pickle Juice Sport Pt.2

Amid all of the hostility over the first posting of Pickle Juice Sport, I have decided to write another. It’s mainly because my opinion doesn’t matter. But readers still want to know what other people think. I was actually surprised to get so much feedback/comments. Thanks for reading folks. It would probably have to be…

Pickle Juice Sport

Hang on a second, I just threw up. Jason Witten, the All-Pro tight end for the Dallas Cowboys, is endorsing probably the grossest sport’s drink in the entire history of sport’s drinks. The Pickle Juice Sport truck was seen last on Scott Street headed south. Tell it to go back where it came from…. How…

Big Red Sports and Imports

WWLS – 640 AM in Wichita Falls – main source of advertising revenue is the now legendary Big Red Sports and Imports car dealership in Norman, Okla. The broadcast that usually shouts the dealership from the rooftops is the Sports Animal. Well the animal needs to rethink some things. Listening to the channel Wednesday morning…

For the record, I didn’t kill JonBenet

First of all, let me say I did not kill JonBenet Ramsey. And I still don’t know who did. But I’m betting Gil Grissom could have solved this case in 30 minutes. CSI-Las Vegas’ top man would have probably found some doodle bug crawling around outside the basement of the Ramsey home and linked it…

Love me or hate me — but first know me

This is my 100th blog. If you have read many of these since I started writing them back on March 28, then you probably know quite a bit about me. That’s the nature of blogs. Slowly, but surely, the writer reveals himself to strangers. For the last five months, I have allowed you to look…

Now you, too, can get into Paris Hilton’s bed

Not many porn stars have done what Paris Hilton has done. At the tender age of 25, this filthy rich heiress endorses perfumes, jewelry, handbags, fashions and cosmetics. Her TV series, “The Simple Life? somehow lasted four seasons. There is talk about a new “Paris? cartoon series. And she has launched her singing career with…

Bad Decisions

Somebody I know, who knows somebody else, was involved in a drunken driving incident Thursday. That person just so happened to be celebrating his birthday the other night. I guess he had one to many. Then he made the decision whether or not to leave the bar behind the wheel of a one-ton weapon. He…

The contender? No, the pretender.

Evander Holyfield will be fighting again tonight in Dallas. And you can bet a lot of smart-aleck sports writers will say he’s too old, too slow and too stupid. First off, 43 is not old. And I’m betting Holyfield could still get off a combination that would knock out some sports writer out before he…

C-Nyle

The Wichita Falls rapper, aka Cedric Gray, is doing just fine, according to a family member. C-Nyle is awaiting trial on a federal case in which he’s accused of drug distribution. The day he was arrested by the local police the day they asked Hasting to remove his CD’s from their shelves is still fresh…

Say a prayer for Mary.

I wrote a “pity party” blog earlier today. I was right. The whole world was wrong. And nobody could make me see things any other way. Then somewhere between 2 and 3 p.m., the whole world changed. All of sudden, “I” no longer mattered. Mary Newell, a co-worker and friend, just got the news that…

Divided Town

I’m not going to throw anyone under the bus, but I was talking with a Rider football coach the other day when something he mentioned caught my ear. He said that Wichita Falls should re-open Washington Jackson and close down Hirschi. Thus having, and creating a three-high school system that would totally divide Wichita Falls.…

Thanks, Texoma; You finally got it right

I had a nice acceptance speech written out for the “Texoma’s Best? party last night. But before I could get it out of my pocket, they were moving on to the best nun or the best hooker or the best glass of ice water or something like that. So my Tuesday night speech just became…

Bullets? I don’t need no stinking bullets

In my business, you travel a lot in pairs. So in the past 34 years, I have put in a lot of road miles with several photographers and sports writers. Since we are co-workers, the one thing we have in common is the paper. So much of our travel conversation is about the good, the…

Roll away the stone!

When I felt the sharp pain Saturday night, I knew exactly what to do. My wife drove me to the hospital emergency room. I walked in and diagnosed myself. “I have a kidney stone,? I told the nurse. The doctor gave me some good drugs, confirmed my diagnosis, wrote a prescription for some more good…
