I didn’t catch much of the Indy/Houston game but I saw Indy execute two great plays in a row. Indy scored a field goal and on the ensuing kickoff they noticed Houston wasn’t covering midfield, so the kicker onsides kick it right down the middle and is able to cover it himself, totally exposing Houston. On the next play the Indy receiver dives to catch the ball on the five. The defensive back doesn’t touch the receiver who gets up and walks into the endzone for a touchdown.
One more thought about the ’30 for 30′ short on the Herschel Walker trade. I wonder if Jimmy Johnson picked up the phone and contacted the ’30 for 30′ guys after that big piece on Jerry Jones aired on ‘Outside the Lines’ where Jerry dogged Johnson. I know Jimmy is proud of his work, but it seems like he almost went out of his way to show what “he” did.
Ed Helms tweeted a picture of himself with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo. I couldn’t stop staring at Chase’s very chubby looking neck.
Something seems fishy with that Dallas deputy that tested negative for Ebola, I just get this feeling he’s wanting media attention. He was once interviewed by KTVT in 2008 when he was a recruit trainer and later fired for an on-duty injury, eventually becoming a deputy. His wife was on network yesterday and was rightly upset she only found out about her husband negative Ebola test through the news, but noted how he complained about going into the apartment unprotected. His son also seemed a little too well spoken and prepared to talk to the media at his front door when he initially went to seek medical attention. If you have Ebola and was concerned about contamination when entering an apartment, why would you possibly expose civilians at a CareNow (basically a doctor-in-a-box clinic) instead of going straight to an ER, or better yet, calling an ambulance?
KTVT was also reporting that the Ebola scare might be to blame for a low attendance for the Texas/OU game at the State Fair, stating that usually crowds of maroon and burnt orange are spotted on a Thursday night. I think they are just trying to sensationalize things, those college kids don’t show up until Friday. And if there’s a reason to blame any low attendance or energy, it’s because Longhorns don’t have a competitive team.
I like Katy Perry and I’m looking forward to seeing her halftime performance at the Super Bowl. When she was on College Gameday last week she was asked about the rumor and stated she was in talks but “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.” Good for her. The NFL was silly for asking artists to play. Their halftime show use to be so bad that Fox got the bright idea of having “In Living Color” do their own halftime show and it was a success. If the NFL is going to make artists pay, and can’t book a big enough artist, I can see Fox and other channels doing something similar like this again.
