Gay ice dancing in the Olympics? Why not?

I had to either be drunk, stoned or bored out of mind a couple of nights ago when I caught myself actually watching Olympic ice dancing. Softball and baseball have been kicked out of the Olympics, yet they keep this stuff? But I watched for awhile and it made me wonder. Will the day ever…

Graham goes with Davidson, other coaching tidbits

No surprise that Graham decided to go with defensive coordinator Kenny Davidson. I’ve known Davidson for a while, but did not really know anything about him. He’s got a pretty impressive coaching resume, and I think he’ll be a good fit. If Graham had opened it up to the masses, then I’m sure some very…

Going topless helps women get Oscars, I think

I’ve been debating this fact with my coworkers over the past week, and I really believe going topless in a film, or any nudity, helps a woman’s chance of being recognized by the Academy. Think about Kate Winslet. How about Halle Berry. And if I remember correctly, Renee Zellweger did the deed in “Cold Mountain.”…

Beware of adoption: Ugly begats ugly

A Wichita Falls woman is in jail today for allegedly selling her unborn baby to two New York couples. The way I read the front page story in today’s paper, she was doubling her money by promising to let both couples adopt the child. One got the kid. The other got the shaft. The shafted…

Tiger’s apology will just be a staged sideshow

Tiger Woods is going to apologize to all of us on Friday. Don’t bother, Eldrick. I don’t need some staged five-minute sideshow — produced and directed by a bunch of PR guys. If you want to talk, let the media ask questions. Otherwise, nothing you read or memorize is going to get me to jump…

Magic Johnson should be peddling ExtenZe

Jimmy Johnson has been catching a lot of media criticism since he recently became the spokesman for ExtenZe. The way I see it is who better to peddle a pill that promises to give all of us men longer and harder johnsons that a guy named Johnson. “Go long,” the former Dallas Cowboys coach says…

Graham, Quanah jobs now open

I was going to write a blog earlier in the week about how quiet it had been on the coaching change front. I never got around to doing it. And now it’s too late to truthfully write it. Within a 24-hour period, both the Graham and Quanah jobs became open. It’s not too surprising. Lots…

Observe and Report

Sometimes you have to do more than Observe and Report. After I watched this video of the beating and the interview done afterward, I was shocked. You can’t just stand by in life and see someone get knocked down and beaten severely. Especially if it is a teenager and you’re the grown man in the…

Final thoughts on realignment

Thought I’d share some last thoughts on the matter before moving onto other spring things. I’ve heard a few 2A and A coaches not really complaining — maybe lamenting is the word i’m looking for — over the discrepancy in playoff teams among the classes. Here are the percentages: 5A – 52% (128 of 245)…

Beware old women carrying bags and bearing arms

This story popped up in my inbox yesterday. It is supposedly a true account recorded in the police log in Sarasota, Fla. “An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun,…

ManCrunch.com and a Pro-Life Super Bowl

It’s all about the Benjamins, baby. This Super Bowl, allegedly, the funny is supposed to return to the commercial extravaganza that is a billion dollar advertising business. I like to watch the commercials, but I don’t watch the Super Bowl to catch the commercials. I watch the Super Bowl because there is a pretty damn…

He said it. He said it. I can’t believe it

For years Bob Eubanks denied it ever happened. I even once heard a radio interview in which the longtime Newlywed Game host offered $10,000 to anyone who could produce a tape of it. The question was: “Where is the strangest place you and your spouse ever made whoopie?” One woman had answered: “In the butt,…
