Bag of Randomness for Friday, October 28, 2022

  • Twenty years ago yesterday, Emmitt Smith broke the all-time rushing record, moving my all-time favorite player to second place. Payton broke the record on October 7, 1984. My quick math tells me that Smith now has held the record longer than Payton owned it.
  • Texas DPS Director Steve McCraw was forced to speak to the Uvalde shooting victims’ families yesterday during a meeting of the DPS Public Safety Commission. He wore a suit instead of what we normally see him, his DPS uniform. I wish I understood why he doesn’t wear his uniform when at these type of meetings.
  • – Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church AnymoreAccording to the Hartford Institute of Religion Research, more than 40 percent of Americans “say” they go to church weekly.
  • The Von Erich wrestling family is popular in our area. I was surprised to find out a movie is being made about them, and a very buff looking Zac Efron and Lily James are starring in it.
  • Martina Navratilova lived in Fort Worth for about ten or eleven years? Something else that similarly surprised me was when I learn Cher used to live in Burleson. During her time in Burleson, Cher had a pet horny toad and accidently shot her aunt’s pet chicken. Her “Mammaw” was from Weatherford.
  • I’m the one local who hasn’t eaten at Joe T. Garcia’s.
  • People wonder why I fear swimming in the ocean.
  • Something for those who are in awe of stadiums – Stadiums that will host 2022 World Cup games in Qatar
    • One of them looks like it holds nothing but shipping containers, and another one (the Al-Janoub Stadium) looks like an albino’s weathered vagina.
