Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, June 26, 2019

 

  • If you’re a Dallas Mavericks or Don Nelson fan, his interview with Bryant Gumble on HBO Sports is a must watch. I knew he’s transformed quite a bit physically, but of all things, I was mesmerized by the sharp V his hairline made.
  • My middle-aged neighbor who recently became a  widower asked me over to help him set up his network printer. To my surprise, the neighbor who is a somewhat-recent widow was also visiting. It was a bit awkward being in the middle of the flirting, I felt like I was put back in my place in high school as the third wheel.
  • Yesterday, it was announced former Dallas Star Guy Carbonneau will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. I thought it was most interesting he was teammates with his son-in-law, Brenden Morrow. They are about 19 years apart in age. I guess the closest thing to that in professional sports would be Ken Griffy Jr. and Sr, who were about 21 years apart in age and played on the same team. However, I forgot they were next to one another in batting order.
  • Texas Monthly magazine bought by oil and gas heiress
  • Alabama car dealership offers customers gun, bible, and flag to celebrate July 4th
  • “I believe no one is self-made. We are fashioned from the generosity of others.”
  • I got a real kick out of yesterday’s shirt of the day on Woot.com – The Original Breakfast Club
  • This video is heartbreaking – Deputies release new photos of abandoned newborn found wrapped in plastic

  1. Bryan B. says:

    Oh man, that Seattle lineup card is all kinds of awesome. 3 Hall of Famers and a host of high profile names including Griffey Sr., Buhner, Vizquel (who could be a Hall of Famer eventually and played for 22 years after that season), and Rangers 80s superstar (or as close to one as they had in that era) Pete O’Brien.

  2. John Mackovic says:

    There’s also the similar example of former Dallas Maverick Delonte West, who was rumored to have had a “relationship” with the mother of his Cavs teammate LeBron James.

  3. Kaleb says:

    This may be one of the best father/son moments in sports.

    Middle aged romance is the best romance. Just saying.

    To balance that statement, now insert Sonny James singing “Young Love”.
