Bag of Randomness for Thursday, January, 5, 2016

  • I took DogGeedingII to the vet, and she was able to confirm he’s got a torn ACL. Surgery will cost about $2,000. Because he’s not in pain, he just can’t put weight on his leg, we’re not going to get the surgery. For now, he’s on anti-inflammatories and getting a lot of rest.
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt is to radio as John F. Kennedy is to television as Donald J. Trump is to Twitter.
  • I don’t care how great Dak Prescott becomes, but I’ll always associate the Cowboys number four with Mike Saxon.
  • Dallas Observer – A Brief Look at the Naming Rights History of Gexa Energy Pavilion, Recently Renamed Starplex
    • I never stopped calling it Starplex.
  • I totally understand why the Republican-controlled Congress wants to repeal and replace Obamacare, but it would help public perception and confidence if they at least could provide a bit of a framework of what they want to replace it with. I get this is a new congress class, but the party has been campaigning against it since its inception, surely they have an idea of a framework and how it’s gonna work.
  • Seventy-seven-year-old Fred Willard was a guest star on ‘Modern Family’ last night. He thin, almost like he was very ill. Also, Kelsey Grammar was also a guest star and his character’s name was “Keifth”. Man, as if I don’t have enough problems with people making fun or getting my name wrong.
    • Cheez-Its was mentioned on the show, and then a commercial for the product aired.
    • That show is in its eighth season, I would have guessed it hasn’t aired any more than five. Time flies, yo.
  • NCAA rules make as much sense as NFL rules – @darrenrovell – Nick Saban will use former players to prepare his team for Clemson. It’s permitted under NCAA rules as long as names aren’t publicized.
  • Cool video of the day involves swimming in/under a frozen lake

    My wife had the exact same thought about Fred Willard, "He looks sickly." A quick Google search didn't reveal any announced illness of any sort, so either he's keeping it private or that's just what being 77 does to you. Regardless, still funny.

    When we started watching Modern Family, our first thought was that it was written much like Frasier – some slapstick mixed in with rapid-fire one-liners that sometimes take multiple viewings to catch. Seeing Kelsey Grammer on the show last night was great. I miss Frasier – it's my all-time favorite sitcom. I don't know that it will ever be topped, IMO.

    – I never used anything but 'Starplex' either
    – As I kid, I liked how Danny White also punted, so I wasn't happy when Mike Saxon replaced him at that position.
