Twenty-five years ago when Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys, or everything leading up to it, I remember the local media admitting they couldn’t find a photo of the guy because he simply hasn’t done anything to warrant any kind of coverage before the upcoming purchase. That’s unimaginable today considering digital technology and the Internet and mobile devices.
I miss seeing that huge Cowboys banner at press conferences. It’s still there, but you never see it, instead you just see some cardboard display with tiny advertiser logos all over it.
We took advantage of the $5 cold weather admission prices at the Dallas Zoo yesterday. It really is a great place, they charge very modest prices for things link two bucks for a pony ride or a dollar for some seeds or nectar to feed birds. Pics of our excursion are below.
The new season of ‘Dallas’ started last night. I’m only watching it for local ties and nostalgia because it’s not really my cup of tea. The first few moments of the episode leaned heavily on honoring the late J.R.
I’m not a fan of Seth Myer’s ‘Late Night’ set. His monologue sounded just he was on Weekend Update reading cue cards, he’s gotta work on his cadence and speaking to the audience, not at them.
A feel good story out of the Brewer’s spring training. A stray dog wondered on the field and when the team couldn’t find the owner, they adopted it and named it after one of their greatest players.
The greatest adaptation from television to film has to be ‘The Fugitive’.
When I have a work crew at my house, I’m the type to make sure they have plenty of water to drink and will occasionally bring out Gatorade. And even though I may be forking over a lot of cash for the work I hire them to do, if the job is performed exceptionally well and I build up a good repore with the owner or lead, I’ll even give them a gift card as a thank you or a tip.
