Watch your menu choices

Here is just a warm up to what’s on menus around town. There are some good choices and much to my dismay there are a lot, a lot, of bad choices. viagra samples scam Who would have thought that a Quizno’s sub can kill, or that a Chili’s Awesome Blossom can kick start a heart…

Rice Anyone?

Is there a rice shortage in the U.S.?So many questions, so many answers. All I know is that my one box of Uncle Ben’s in my cupboard is going to be there for a while.

Track regionals predictions

I know they started this morning, but I wanted to give my two cents on the weekend’s track meets. The top two in each event of the four classifications will be heading to Austin in a couple of weeks. Here are people I consider have pretty good shots, as long as they reach the same…

Wrestling with politics

Who would have seen this coming? Barack, Hillary and McCain have faced on pretty big stages but none as big as under the lights and glimmer of the WWF (I still use the F and not the E simply because that’s what I grew up on.) Above is Jon Stewart’s spin – and his writers…

Area track athletes going to regionals

Because I am obsessed and have a little too much time on my hands during the day, I have compiled a list of city and area track athletes heading to regionals this week. There’s about 350 of them, and the top two in each event in the region will go to Austin on May 9-10.…

Juno

Who would have thought I would have enjoyed a movie about the plight of a 16-year old preggo so much. “Juno” staring the fantastically sarcastic Ellen Page, as Juno MacGuff, sets the tone for future actresses who make light of a teenage pregnancy. Juno gets a case of the babies when she sleeps with similarly…

Dallas Stars fever

I now have caught it. Which is pretty weak that it took this long, considering my past. Growing up in Dallas, I was a die-hard Stars fan. Watched nearly every game. Can recall nearly every huge playoff contest. I can tell you how awesome the line of Joe Nieuwendyk, Jamie Langenbrunner and Dave Reid were…

The return of Sound Off

I did not work last night, but I saw online this morning that there was finally a Sound Off. We have gone two full weeks without one of those, and I cannot give you a good reason why.

Jackie Robinson Day

“Players again have been invited to wear Robinson’s No. 42 on Tuesday, the 61st anniversary of when Robinson played his first game for the Brooklyn Dodgers and broke the major league color barrier. More than 330 players, managers and coaches are expected to wear No. 42, up from more than 240 last year.”

One crazy week

I have been meaning to blog a lot more starting last week, but it has been pretty crazy around here in the sports world. A quick breakdown of what has been going on:

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

These photos are taken from the Associated Press. The first few are generic shots, that hopefully don’t need a description to understand. Just in case, the motel photographs are taken from the location were Dr. King was assassinated. Take a second and let everything sink in once your are done. There aren’t many photographs here,…

Crunk Juice with that Vino?

I continue to be amazed. Lil Jon — the YEEEAAAAHHHH! man himself — is starting a wine label. Who would have thought. Doesn’t everybody like to get throwed off the wine. For many who don’t know, Lil Jon is an Atlanta rapper/producer with long dreads who has notoriously been featured in skits on Dave Chappelle’s…
