Common Sense — Do The Right Thing To Win. #EOS

January 12th, 2018 · Tags: Politics · Satire · Sports

Imagine, if you will, a closed-door meeting in an NFL team executive office.  The owner is there, presiding.  The coach is there, along with the vice president, the general manager, the head of player personnel, the head of operations and several of the top player development/scouting professionals. The team has an astronomical budget — both […]

Shake Your Moneymaker: “Process” & Uncanny Coincidence

January 2nd, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Music · Satire

  I had not been awake for long the morning that a text came in telling me that my friend’s new PingWi-Fi t-shirt had been delivered, way way up north in the top of the Texas Panhandle. In my groggy state, it seemed appropriate that I should give him some BS line to make it […]

The Dirty Gig is full of characters … never a dull moment … And Puerto Rico was no different.  Working at the storied El San Juan Hotel in Carolina, Puerto Rico, one of my colleagues supervised a laborer named Ura who just stood out above the others … for his personality and attitude … not […]

Houston Dirty Gig Continues … #IIWII … Rap About Nothing

September 17th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Music · Satire

  When you were a child, did you know what you wanted to be when you grow up? I knew what I didn’t want to be at about nine and it involved math.  Ha … I recently figured out that I was good in math back then only when it involved memorization — pluses, minuses, […]

Breaking Away From Wi-Fi With Pedal Power

July 20th, 2017 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Music · Satire · Sports

My first “attempt” at college was a dismal failure.  It was so bad that I pretty much considered an “incomplete” grade for a course a bit ot a win — as opposed to a fail.  Thank goodness that university kicked me out and saved me a few bucks. Then, I went and grew up, entered […]

In Lieu Of Wi-Fi, Ping Lays Down Rhythm At Fortress Fest

April 29th, 2017 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Music · Satire · Wi-Fi

  On the eve of Fort Worth’s inaugural Fortress Festival, the Triumph Thunderbird cruiser was parked in front of a large, redbricked-warehouse-of-a-structure, next to a food trailer. Inside and in the garden behind there was one old, long-haired blogger and a bunch of Fort Worth hipster elite for a invitation-only gettogether with one of the […]

PingWi-Fi Backing Blue, Packing Smart Phone, On The Scene

April 24th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Satire · Sports

My morning bicycle ride through a wooded park on the way to the Trinity River was virtually uneventful, except for the very, very large woman feeding her very tiny baby at the park bench — the absolute closest bench to the trail, as conspicuous as possible. So genteel and subtle:) What’s the old baseball joke […]

Fasten Yo Seatbelts, Elevator Going U-u-u-u-u-up!

May 22nd, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Hotels · Satire

I must admit, the travel life can be pretty interesting … and on the other hand, sometimes it becomes mundane.  That’s when I try to find the good in all … or more accurately, just have fun with it. Take elevators.  Pretty mundane, but there’s got to be something interesting about them.  Don’t they call […]
