Week 4 high school picks

I wasn’t able to make my predictions last week because of a death in the family, but I’m back and ready to break down this week’s action. It is District time for 5-4A and 9-2A, which means now the games finally matter. And that is what makes these next few weeks even greater.

Marvin Gaye

How could anybody not have heard the music of Marvin Gaye. That’s the question I asked myself the other day. I was at the Wichita County courthouse when an employee asked if I had any new ringtones. I said I doubt it unless she wanted a Marvin Gaye song. “Marvin who?” was her response. I…

Six area teams ranked

The other day, I wrote a column about how the area is thriving with six football teams ranked. But who has the best chance of finishing the regular season still ranked between Graham, Holliday, Rider, Vernon, Munday and Windthorst? Here are some of my thoughts on the matter:

Resident-Evil Dump

What kind of box office dumpster of a weekend does it take to put the new Resident Evil movie at the top of the charts. I kinda liked the first Resident Evil movie. But the second was horrible and I’d put someone else’s money on the third one be a substandard also. It’s based on…

Hurt

Johnny’s cover of NIN’s “Hurt” has got to be one of the best songs recorded in the last 20 years. NIN did a good job, but you feel it when Cash sings it. The guy was on his deathbed, but he continued to record. It’s too bad it took a Joaquin Phoenix movie to get…

Cowboys…so far

The Boys look good. They’re not the greatest, but I don’t have too many complaints. They should have destroyed Miami more convincingly last week, but a win is a win. T.O. looks almost unstoppable. Romo is the only thing that can hold him back. That bit last week when he scored when he poked fun…

Two burrs in my butt

I have a couple of burrs in my butt this morning. One is the mother in the school bus incident. Lady, give it up. Your son was done wrong. You have a right to be pissed. All of us were on your side — but now you are pissing us off. The boy is OK.…

Whatever happened to Sharon Ann?

This is a re-run of a blog I wrote last November. —————— We were boyfriend and girlfriend in the Summer of 1958. I was 11. She was 12. We went to movies together. We went swimming together. We went to the park together. We hugged. We kissed. We played a little touchy-feely. Then we broke…

Week 2 high school picks

Before I give some of my picks for this weekend’s games, let me get this rant off my chest. If you checked out Thursday’s paper, you have may noticed the high school picks. And you may have noticed that I was bringing up the rear. Yep, dead last.

My picture is on a bathroom wall?

My wife and I were eating queso and drinking beer in the On the Border bar last night. Each time our waiter walked by our booth, he had this puzzling expression on his face. I figured he was either constipated or confused. Honestly, I have seen that same confused expression many times over the year.…

God bless America

On this, the sixth anniversary of 9-11, I offer you words of a housewife from New Jersey, whom I don’t know and have never met. But forget “Hillary for President.” I am voting for this chick —————— “Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by…

Tough day

I had a pretty rough day yesterday. When I first started my work day I found out that a family I know , the Helenschmidts, had to deal with the loss of a loved one. Scott Helenschmidt was killed after what I’m assuming was a cry for help. I know Scott’s son, and his niece…

NFL Picks

The NFL season gets underway today…can’t you read the bleeding excitement coming through this type?! The year doesn’t really begin until I make it to football season, the rest I just sleep walk through. The Saints will beat up the Colts on the ground tonight for a close win and a fantastic start to the…

A story of two rich white bitches

Dogs are in the headlines a lot these days. Pit bulls invade a woman’s home and maul her. A man shoots the family dog for eating his supper And of course, there is Michael Vick. But on the opposite side of all that is Leona Helmsley. This billionaire goofball died and left more money to…
