Bag of Randomness

  • One of my posts from last week is causing my sidebar to appear at the bottom.  Just give it a week and it should fix it self.
  • Why the heck did we only have one NFL game to watch at noon yesterday? And why the heck was their another game aired in our area during the Cowboys game? #firstworldpains
  • The NFL is really picky when it comes to uniform standards, and as of late has been very big on protecting their players, yet I see a lot of players wearing pants above the knee and no knee or thigh pads.
  • That was a fun Cowboys game to watch, and I think Romo, if he hasn’t yet, has earned the respect of his teammates.
  • That Miles Austin stretch into the end zone will be a highlight clip for years to come.
  • Taking the opening kickoff for an 8-minute long drive to the one-yard-line only to miss a field goal is equivalent to courting a girl for months only to find out she just wants to be friends.
  • Man, there were sure a lot of Cowboys fans in the crowd, as evident from the cheering after that winning field goal.
  • For you HIMYM fans, I don’t think we’ll see Barnie and Robin wed because in the previews, we see Robin in just an ordinary dress.
  • While eating Mexican food the other night we turned our heads from ToddlerGeeding for only about five seconds when we noticed her munching on a jalapeno.  I don’t think she’ll be any jalapenos anytime soon.
  • Remember those days not so long ago when texting it took about three pushes of the same button for one letter?
  • Westboro Baptist Church was doing one of their infamous protests when the Foo Fighters decided to counter protest by playing a gig on a flat bed trailer right in front of them.
  • I like what the Longhorns are doing buy using multiple quarterbacks, it’s quite interesting.
  • The trooper that is almost always next to Bob Stoops looks like he could beat up any man on the planet.
  • It’s amazing how some people will smuggle drugs in their body.
  • House Speaker John Boehner will have his seat challenged by a 26-year-old Tea Party member.
  • I think both the Tea Party and the GOP would be better off if they eliminated their relationship.
  • Clint Eastwood in GQ discusses his days as an Eisenhower Republican.
  • I remember as a kid in school having to raise my hand to be called on, and sometimes it would be left in the air so long that I got tired and it just kind of laid on top of my head.  Well, this guy has been raising his hand for about 38 years.
  • Obama is ‘ramping up his God talk’
  • The White House brews its own beer, with equipment the Obamas have bought.
  • Emmitt Smith’s commercials, especially the Academy one, are painful to watch.  He comes off as extremely scripted and rehearsed.
  • Take a picture of a shirt, and get the wearer’s contact info.
  • I recall hearing that he hired a speech coach to help him with his Hall of Fame induction speech.  Part of me things that a good idea and shows he takes the event seriously, but then part of me feels it takes away from the raw true emotions.
  • Per this infograph, in Texas, you take a state sponsored bounty hunter course online.
  • Most sunglasses are made by the same company
  • I didn’t catch a lot of the Emmy’s, but the those best actresses in a comedy sure had a funny bit, especially with Amy Poehler starting the whole thing.
  • This is the first line in an email I recieved from the university in which I’m a faculty member, “The Committee on Committees has completed standing committee assignments for the 2011-2012 academic year.”  I’m calling a penalty on excessive use of the word “committee.”
  • In China, love letters with 7 year delay to tackle divorce rate
  • I was really happy to see Friday Night Lights do well last night.
  • As macabre as it might sound, I really enjoying watching the In Memoriam parts of the award shows, and I wonder if those in attendance actually stop and think that they’ll be in such a remembrance one day.

    CBS had the doubleheader yesterday. Since the cowboys were on Fox, they could only show their late game which was the Cowboys. This is a fun site that tells you what NFL game we'll be getting:
