Bag of Randomness

  • Indianapolis Colts fans have to be sick to their stomach.  They lose Peyton Manning for the season, win only two games, and now their biggest rival, the Patriots, will be playing the Super Bowl on their home field.  Wouldn’t it be something if Tom Brady gets Peyton Manning’s locker?
  • I hope the Giants beat the tar out of the Patriots.  I lost all respect for Belichick after that video tape cheating scandal, and Boston is too much of a baseball town to appreciate football.  Point in case, after winning their first Super Bowl, fans chanted “Yankees suck.”
  • Never trust the game to a Cowboys kicker or a former Cowboys kicker.  Sorry you had to learn that the hard way, Baltimore.
  • WifeGeeding is dilated to one-centimeter, which means her water can break any second now or three weeks from now.
  • For the first time in a long time I bought some boots.
  • No, they aren’t cowboy boots.
  • I watched Moneyball this weekend and found it extremely frustrating to watch because all of Billy Beane’s moves reminded of Jerry Jone’s arrogance.  It’s what I imagined Jerry would come up with if he was writing a loosely fictional story about himself ignoring advice from scouts and basically telling the coaches what to do and doing things his way, only to make it about baseball so not to make things so obvious and of course having Brad Pitt stay as himself.
  • It was sad to hear the news of the passing of JoePa this weekend.  It may have been sadder to hear about his death the first time around as the media threw the story out before fact checking.
  • Even though I’m in the minority, I still don’t think Paterno should have been fired before the end of the season and I think not only he did what needed to be done legally, but he also acted ethically in his actions by reporting the allegations to his superior who oversaw campus police.  I now expect some comments telling me that I support child molestation, and I don’t have respect for the victims, and that they will never read this blog again.
  • I wonder if a lot of people know there’s a significant difference between campus police and campus security.
  • I had to speak at both services at my church yesterday.  It was nothing major and both speeches were less than two minutes, but I haven’t been that nervous to speak in quite a while, heck, I felt like I was in college again ready to give a class presentation.  I would have thought years of teaching in college would have gotten me over the nervousness, but I guess when you are out of your element it’s easy to get nervous.
  • One of the top high school football recruits was recently expelled from school because of racial and sexually suggestive tweets on his private Twitter account.  Kids are going to have to learn that what they say in social media is going to follow them, perhaps for life.
  • If you are a fan of the Meg Ryan deli scene in When Harry Met Sally, here’s an interesting mashup of that scene with a lot of other pop culture items sliced in.
  • When it comes to sexual sins or affairs, the public seems more forgiving of Newt than Bill Clinton.
  • I was surprised to see that Haywire came in fifth at the box office this weekend.
  • 4 bizarre ways Apple guards its secrets
  • Why the iPhone is built overseas
  • It’s very admirable that Rep Gabby Giffords is stepping down in the best interest for her state.
  • I like the way Google Chrome gives the user the option to use the “Paste as plain text” option using the right click.
  • Matthew McConaughey reprises his Dazed And Confused character in this music video.
  • The 10 Fastest-Growing (and Fastest-Declining) Cities in the World – My hometown of Mineral Wells isn’t on the list.

    thank you for your view on JoePa; I feel the same way and have expressed it many times. May he rest in peace and may his legacy be strong.

    I don't agree with you on Paterno, but I respect your opinion. You're going to have to try a lot harder than that to get me to stop reading your blog.

    The difference between Clinton and Gingrich is Newt has admitted he did wrong and asked forgiveness. Bil has not.

      Back on Sept 11, 1998 at the White House prayer breakfast, Bill Clinton specifically stated he sinned and asked for forgiveness from God, Hillary, Monica and the Lewinsky family, and others. But I guess in the eyes of some, no matter what he says or does, it will never be genuine enough.
