I remember a time in which Apple computers were mainly used in schools, and just about every computer at home was a PC because of Apple’s limited software. I remember just about every computer at college being a PC because if you saved your work on a floppy in the lab, you needed compatible software and an operating system to open your work at the dorm. I remember when the Microsoft Office suite of software was only available on the PC. I think along with Jobs’ smarts and vision, he was very lucky to come back to Apple just when the Internet started to become popular where it didn’t matter what operating system was used to surf the web and the willingness of Microsoft to make the Office suite available on the Mac. I think the one thing that started to really set Apple apart was when it started to focus outside of the computer business when it created the iPod.
For about the last four years my alma mater has sent a post card to my dog named Tune (after Bill Parcells) thinking he was my actually child. Well, that poor dog died at the first of the year. Now I’m thinking of writing the university telling them to remove Tuna from their mailing list because I had him put to death.
I’m really happy that TCU is moving to the Big 12. They should have been there long ago, and I hope the Big 12, should it survive, change its name to the Southwest Conference.
My friend Richard came up with this interesting local sports hypothetical: If the Rangers win the World Series this year…imagine if Mark Cuban won the bidding last year and was their owner. He wins an NBA title and a World Series in the same year.
A) Imagine how crazy that would be, and how megalomaniacal Mark Cuban would become and how revered he would be in these parts.
B) Who else in sports ownership could boast of that double dip in two sports, in the same year?
C) Would this drive Jerry straight to the asylum?

ESPN The Magazine has a “Body” issue that feature nude athletes but in positions where you can’t see their privates. I hear a lot of conservative groups upset at Sports Illustrated for their swimsuit issue, but I haven’t heard any complaints about ESPN. But then again, I haven’t been listening.
My old pastor from my hometown use to burn it the moment that swimsuit issue came in the mail. Now I understand you can opt out.
When I celebrity dies, I really wish the media would ignore anything Westboro Baptist Church has to say.
