  • I think the Dallas Cowboys’ dark blue uniforms aren’t as dark blue as they used to be. And that’s a good thing. They are just a shade bit lighter, almost indistinguishable.
  • You won’t hear me argue that Ezekiel Elliott is overpaid. But I think those who complain about his rush average don’t take into account how much better of a blocker he his than Tony Pollard.
  • I miss you, Amari Cooper.
  • It’s not Dak’s fault CeeDee Lamp drops catchable passes.
  • I think ESPN has a star in the making with Robert Griffin III. He’s an excellent football analyst and expresses his thoughts well. Other than him coming across as wanting to be liked too much, he’s going to shine.
  • Nobody has that “I want and I’m trying to be liked” vibe more than Jimmy Fallon. He’s nice, but his nervous energy overly complimenting guests is too much for me.
  • The ticket has an advertisement for “Titensor Dental”. But when they say it, all I hear is “tight and sore dental”. I think the dental practice should consider changing names.
  • I’m not sure why the new sports radio station is going to be called “The Freak.” From my understanding, it will be on 97.1 and the call letters will still continue to be KEGL. So, why not called it The Eagle or Eagle Sports Radio?
  • Dallas Love Field lands No. 3 ranking among best large airports in U.S.
    • Among the six Texas airports featured in the study, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport — the world’s second busiest airport — lands at No. 5 (score of 778) statewide. On the list of mega airports, DFW appears at No. 8, with Minneapolis-Saint Paul International claiming the top spot.
  • I guess they aren’t trying to recruit anyone – CIA Launches First Podcast, ‘The Langley Files,’ Which Reveals That Working at the Agency Is More Boring Than Hollywood Makes It Seem

  • Do automobile manufacturers even provide a manual window option anymore?

  • From watching CBS Sunday Morning, I learned that Sigourney Weaver’s father created the Today and Tonight Show.

    • The station will rebrand as “97.1 The Freak” and former “1310/96.7 The Ticket” KTCK afternoon host Mike Rhyner will be a part of it.

  • Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said his Republican peers are hesitant to criticize former President Donald Trump because if they do, Trump “turns around and punches them in the face.
  • James Earl Jones lets AI take over the voice of Darth VaderJames Earl Jones plans to step away from his role as the voice of Darth Vader, but a Ukrainian startup could help keep Jones’ legendary voice alive
  • I get easily annoyed when pay kiosks, especially from fast-food type places, ask if I want to include a tip. I’d be really annoyed if I got this in a restaurant. An additional tip?!

  • I attended my first church small group. I brought cookies and pumpkin scones to express my gratitude. They all welcomed me with open arms. The group filled with retired folks, and the joked how my age will bring the average age of the group down. One of them had a lot of questions about my mother and her Eastern faith. It was interesting talking about my mom for so long. It felt weird, and then I realized it’s been forever since I talked about or told stories about my mother. It was nice.
  • The group kept talking about my favorite pizza joint that I stopped there on the way home. I haven’t been since the separation. My ex taught the owner’s son and has always been extremely cordial with me, I was embarrassed to show up. But, he welcomed me with open arms and lent me some advice.
  • When someone tells me, “Aren’t you over that yet?” I think what I’m going through isn’t something to “get over”, it’s something to work through.
  • Family is not everything.
  • I’m going on my forth or fifth date with the same girl I had that five-hour dinner tonight. It’s pretty cool she wants to start a non-profit.
  • Boys and men experience more social isolation than girls and women, study finds
  • Several things still trigger me. I think trigger responses are about our bodies attempting to protect us from threats, not being weak.
  • Both took office when they where as old as dirt – Joe Biden’s approval rating is at the same level as Ronald Reagan’s in the run-up to the Republican president’s first midterm election.
  • “I have no patience with the extreme rightists who call everyone who disagrees with them a Communist, nor with the leftists who shout that the rest of us are all heartless money-grubbers.” – President Eisenhower
  • How about less “But didn’t you see the red flags?” And more “I see how hard you were trying to be loved.”
  • White House slams Ted Cruz for touting infrastructure project he voted against
  • If I understand this correctly, Joey Votto plays first base for the Cincinnati Reds, but is out for the season due to injury. Well, it appears he spent some time in the stands just being nice to the fans. That’s cool.
    • On Wednesday night at Great American Ball Park, Votto made his way through the crowd wearing a Larkin jersey during the first few innings to visit with fans and pose for photos. He was heard during the broadcast telling fans “thank you” a lot.
