Pitching Names For New Texas Baseball Team

June 1st, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Satire · Sports

  What’s in a name? I know people. And some of those people like to name things … imaginary rock bands and maybe a country band name or two. My most recent, Tire Swing … I digress. One’s name, or brand is important … trying to exalt your name above all names (of your competitors […]

March 18th, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Coffee Shops · Hotels · Satire · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

    It’s one of the more common themes in Sci-Fi — the parallel universe — a place where everything you know exists but everything is different. Ha!   Well, I experienced a little PU in my hotel room the other night in Pocatello, Idaho.  It’s a long story … The disaster team, traveling on […]

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 […]

Heart Of Dallas Bowl: Utes Down Mountain Men

December 28th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

“Never give up on your team.”  I preached that to my kids for years, the kids that I coached, or anyone who would listen.  It makes me a little furious when I see fans leaving the stadium before the game ends … even if their team is behind by three scores or whatever. Never give […]

  Young players and fans attending the 2017 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl potentially may have learned the military term “hunker down.” … Talk about two quarterbacks playing under center!   Both Ahmad Bradshaw for the Army West Point Black Knights and Christian Chapman of the San Diego State University Aztecs at times hunkered down […]

What Is Burnt Orange & Crimson All Over? Hook ‘Em Sooners

October 13th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports

The Red River Shoot Out! What tradition!  Spectacle.  Pageantry. Spirt. Tailgates.  Obnoxity.* (*Not a word).  Have you been?  If not, picture deafening chaos with 90,000 screaming fans, many drunk, half in burnt orange and half in crimson.  Pretty easy to see where the lines are drawn in the bleachers.  May the best team win. Special […]

Top Offense, Stingy Defense Battle Under Houston Sun

September 24th, 2017 · Tags: Cities · Sports · Wi-Fi

    Houston versus Texas Tech … a great matchup pretty much ignored by the favor-playing, subjective major media, but #IIWII.  The reality: the most prolific offense in college football was facing a team on a winning streak … a team led by the best defender in the country … a D squad that was […]

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 […]

Pinging PK: Cutting A Wake Away From Wireless

June 13th, 2017 · Tags: Sports

Texas has many lakes.  But Texas has one real lake.  You see, all of the lakes in Texas, barring one, are man made. The one real lake, Caddo Lake, is described in native legends as a miracle of the earth opening up and taking on water with help from the creator.  The rest 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 […]
