Bag of Randomness

  • WifeGeeding made a trip to our local Wal-Mart Supercenter last night and informed me not one cart was available.
  • I feel pressured to say Wal-Mart Supercenter and not Super Wal-Mart because I a former coworker would always correct me and accuse me of changing the store name.
  • Speaking of Wal-Mart: Target Cheaper Than Wal-Mart As Gap Widest In Two Years
  • Now that the Red Sox have all sorts of cap room available, I bet you will see Josh Hamilton in a home jersey at Fenway next year.  Personally, I wouldn’t miss him, he’s too much of a headcase and inconsistent.
  • I saw one of our local news stations doing a feature on health code violations at popular restaurants the other night.  Seriously, they do this at least once a year, and it’s such low hanging fruit . . . I just expect more out of investigative journalism.
  • I was in the post office the other day and a mother was letting her little daughter go crazy and from time to time correct her in loud Spanish.  However, once outside the building, she was correctly her softly in English.  #confused
  • I always use to make fun of former Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Ernie Zampese’s addition to cigarettes.  In the latest MMQB, Zampese and his doctors claim that his stroke somehow flip a switch in his brain which causes him to no longer crave a cigarette.
  • Is Skip Bayless the worst thing to ever come out of Dallas?
  • Jerry Jones has been criticized by the local media for not drafting ‘troubled’ wide receiver Randy Moss and really missing out on an incredible player . . . and the same media is criticizing Jones for drafting ‘troubled’ wide receiver Dez Bryant.  You’re damned if you do, you are damned if you don’t.
  • How on earth could the Cowboys let the Dez Bryant rules and restrictions out?
  • So many folks in the area wonder why Jerry Jones keeps doing Papa John’s commercials.  I guess they forget he owns a 49% stake in over 70 franchises in the area.
  • MTV has their own fantasy election website.
  • Maybe it’s because no one has really invited me to be a part of a fantasy football league, and I’m not asking anyone to, but I kind of think of fantasy football as something of the past or just for guys in their 20’s.
  • There’s been a crazy amount of high school football being televised on ESPN as of late.
  • Speaking of high school football, the here’s a top ten ranking.  Two of the top ten teams are in the DFW area.  Surprisingly, at least to me, Dallas Skyline outranks Southlake Carroll.
  • I admire you, Bill Nye, but at least we don’t live in Turkey.
  • Video of lava being poured on six feet of ice
  • YouTube – “Now, how would you feel, Mrs. Armstrong, if it turned out – of course nobody knows – but if it turns out that your son is the first man to land on the moon? What, how do, how would you feel?”
  • Man Killed While Trying to Create Bigfoot Sighting
  • A great back to school photo
  • Seriously, it’s the last straw

    I'm glad Bill Nye spoke up! I'm sure the Bible Belt is going to have fun banning him but it needed to be said. Here is what I don't understand and I wish people would just discuss…why is NOT believing in Creationism make you a non-believer? Certainly, when Genesis was written, mankind thought that the earth was flat and that the human brain was a useless blob. With the study of science and educating ourselves, we know quite certainly that is not the case. But, the great mysteries of our space and even our own human mind in itself proves we are from some great design…a design that even today, with all our intelligence, cannot mimic. We still do not know how to mimic the capacity of the human mind. We still struggle to just get to the moon. In my opinion, the honest study of science teaches us all that there is a God and that everything is in place for reasons we are barely discovering. It's just ridiculous to think a story dictates a believe in God rather than celebrating the great design He actually performed.

    I was thinking of Skip Bayless the other day while watching Tim Tebow play[?] in a Jets pre-season game.

    Last year I was listening to an ESPN program and Bayless was expounding on the greatness of Tebow and all his statistics and achievements and how he was head and shoulders above any other quarterback. Bayless clearly doesn't know what he is talking about and routinely just babbles away with mind-numbing statistics. He seems to have a theory that by making non-credible statements he can generate controversy and hence interest in what he has to say.
