Track season is here

While there have been a couple of relay-only meets the past couple of weeks, this weekend signifies the beginning of track season. Four years ago, I had never seen a track meet. And the first one I was at was one of those all-day marathons that McNiel Field seems to hold every year.

The Hulkster Rulez

Hulk Hogan’s divorce might have been caused by the fact that the little Hulkimaniac couldn’t stay behind bars. Hogan’s split with wife Linda, who teamed for a great reality show duo, couldn’t make it work. News is spreading today that Hogan was befriending his daughter, Brooke, friend in more ways than one. All I could…

Seinfeld photos

The TRN, unfortunately, wasn’t able to sneak a camera into the Jerry Seinfeld show Thursday night. So, if anyone got a picture or two they would like to share with the rest of the Clayton Hein blog fans, email away. I’d be happy to post, or try to post, anything that is postable. The review…

Texas Wildfires

This was written by the Associated Press. It’s an update to what’s going on in the Lone Star State. Reminder: give what you can to your local volunteer fire department. ROBERT LEE, Texas (AP) — (Robert Lee is southwest of Abilene) Firefighters across West and Central Texas continued to battle wildfires Tuesday that burned at…

Skate Away

Here’s a Feb. story from Baltimore, M.D. It’s about a 14-year old kid skateboarding somewhere he shouldn’t have been and a cop who must have been having a bad day. The 14-year old, from what it appears, is OK. The officer was suspended after the video was found on YouTube.com. I’m sure the children’s parents…

Cowboy Cheerleader Barbie

Just take a look for yourself and judge. Its a Barbie and its a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. I got this email from the Dallas Cowboys. I’m a loyal subscriber to Dallascowgirls.com, and I felt like I had to pass this along. And I’m not really sure how I feel about it. Its a Barbie! What’s…

The Mannings

Has Peyton ever turned down a commercial. I hope so. The above is exactly why I didn’t want to see little Manning win the Super Bowl. Soon Eli will be hosting SNL. It’s the end of the world as we know it. I do love the Oreo. If you want to have a little fun…

Dunk Contest ’08

Gerald Green had my vote — up until he did back-to-back between the leg dunks. I don’t remember something as spectacular as the “blowin’ out the candle” dunk. It took mine and his breath away when he did it. Gerald Green is something else. I love Dwight Howard, mainly because he looks like he can…

Peeked MMA interest

I’m a fan of the backyard brawl. Something about seeing two guys knock the snot out of each other does it for me. I’ve watched about every backyard fight posted on YouTube.com. It’s a rush, and I don’t really know why. Over the past year one guy in particular has risen through the ranks by…

A day in the life

First off, I cannot complain about my job too much. I cover sports for a living. I could be spending my days building business proposals or doing construction, so I know I do not have it too rough. But sometimes I think the general perception is that our jobs are a piece of cake. Just…

songerize that song

This website offers a service to play one song at the tip of a typist’s keyboard strokes. One song at a time of course. http://www.songerize.com/ Try “Ain’t No Love” by Bobby Bland, or “The Burn” by The Cure — two songs on my playlist right now.

Welcome on My TV :)

“Dexter” you are more then welcome to come to my house the night you air. The TV show, originally aired on Showtime, will – because of the writer’s strike – airs on CBS Sunday. The story in today’s Times Record News( http://www.timesrecordnews.com/news/2008/feb/14/not-my-tv/ ) suggests that some people might be a little upset about the drama…
