I can admit when I’m wrong…

….really, I can. And with a couple of months under our belt, I have to admit that I might be wrong about this. I have to admit to quite a bit of pleasant surprise at this year’s Texas Rangers so far. Didn’t see it coming. Really didn’t. Seems to me that there have been BIG […]

Boycott the Rangers

It’s Opening Day, and it should be one of my favorite days of the year. Up until a few years ago, I had a great tradition of always going to the Opening Day game. Not anymore. Nor can I share the zeal of those who are gleeful today. Three years ago, I wrote this blog […]

A College Football Playoff

Since it appears that this year my team is the one that gets screwed by the BCS, I am drawn back the grail-like search for a college football playoff. As I look at it, there’s a way to create a college football playoff system and only add one game to the current schedule for the […]

"Oh this is sure stirring up some ghosts for me…"

“I been spellbound – falling in trances I been spellbound – falling in trances You give me shivers – chills and fever I been spellbound – somewhere down the crazy river” — Robbie Robertson Far more faithfully than either guns or religion, it seems to me that Americans cling to their sports bitterness. It’s what […]

So, Should We Believe Donaghy?

One more bit of bitterness while I’m at it…. Some may recall that the whole “Bitter P1” thing came from some YouTube vids that I uploaded in the wake of the Mavs loss to the Heat two years ago. I’m over it. Promise. Really not bitter about it any more. Although, it’s a fascinating exercise […]

What Happened to the Dallas Cowboys?!!!

The bitter P1 is back again. Heck, everybody’s bitter today. And since I already started last night, why not pile on? Like I said two days ago, I am sure somebody’s going to make the obvious comparison to the Mavericks of last season…chewing through the NBA regular season like they were playing high school teams…then […]

What I Love About College Football

Where to start with the list of things I love about College Football? I love it way more than the Pros, that’s for sure, and not just because the Cowboys suck. First, on any given Saturday, it’s at least theoretically possible that the best team in the land might lose to somebody nobody’s heard of. […]

Just So We’re Clear…

There is a guy who, in the coming weeks, will break one of baseball’s most hallowed records. I wrote about him before in a blog entry you can still find here. The closer we get to the date he will break that record, the less I am paying attention. I am turning off media reports […]

Glad for Jerry, Sad for Dallas

As news of the Cowboy’s winning bid for the 2011 Super Bowl filtered out this week, I can’t help but feel happy for Jerry Jones, and sad for my city. And I find myself having totally flip-flopped in my view of both Jerry Jones and the new stadium. You gotta give Jerry Jones some credit […]

Not Robbed This Time

A year ago on this blog, I started something of a mini-internet sensation with my allegation that the Dallas Mavericks were robbed of the NBA Championship by sorry officiating and the Oscar-worthy acting skills of Dwyane Wayde. You can read the original post here. An amazing number of people still stumble on that blog post […]
