Bag of Randomness


  • Any doubt that Yu Darvish gets the opening day start next year?
  • I tried to be a good friend and text my closest friends who love the Rangers just to make sure their eyes were on the game for the ninth inning.
  • I can’t imagine the pressure a fielder must have when a ball comes their way in the ninth inning of a perfect game, not that the last hit was anyone’s fault.
  • I think Yu was teary-eyed coming off the field after his teammates and Wash talked to him.
  • One of my close friends was in a Houston airport bar lounge watching the game in the ninth when his flight started to board.  He felt like his leaving the bar to board his flight jinxed Yu.
  • Those Rangers know how to break hearts with one out to go in the ninth.  Just look at last night and that game six in St Louis a few seasons ago.
  • I think I prefer last night’s sideline reporter better than Emily Jones.
  • Yu has a bit of a Nolan Ryan appeal to him, that whenever he takes the mound you feel like you need to watch because something special could happen.
  • Twitter makes events like last night pretty cool, it’s like being in one large living room with your friends, family, and enemies.
  • Study: Texans spend $4.37 billion gambling each year in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Louisiana
  • It sure didn’t take FGCU’s head basketball coach to jump ship.  With that in mind, I really admire the Butler coach for staying put and trying to build something.
  • Until yesterday, I never saw this great photo of Laker greats Shaquille O’Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and George Mikan.
  • Who’s the most marketable MLB player, in terms of commercials and product endorsements?
  • A Walter White Easter egg at the White House
  • Wise County may have their infamous speedo-wearing-lawn-mowing-man, but my  neighborhood has a  325 pound NFL lineman that always mows his lawn shirtless.
  • Google Street View of an abandoned Japanese city hit by that killer tsunami
  • Real Life Models for Your Favorite Disney Characters
  • Teachers CHL Seminar – “The Largest CHL Class Ever Held” – In Kennedale to honor Chris Kyle, and George P. Bush will make an appearance.
  • The Dallas sign “Motel Couple $19” is no more
  • I thought there was some good and civil theological discussion in yesterday’s Bag of Randomness.  One thing I appreciate about most of my commenters, for the most part, are very respectful to one another.
  • “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift and that’s why they call it the present.”

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves, now – we're barely into this season! Darvish evidently hadn't shown enough of that kind of control in the pre-season games, or he would have been the opening day starter.

    If I had to guess at the most marketable MLB player, my guess would be Justin Verlander.
