Hurricane relief is serious, but this is still funny...

September 26, 2005 at 07:07 PM

When the league held its fundraising telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims last Monday, one of the operators taking phone calls was former Raiders lineman and coach Art Shell. At one point during the evening, the phone at his station rang. He picked it up. NFL Hurricane Relief, this is Art Shell, he answered. Raiders SUCK!' said a guy, who promptly hung up. I was thinking the same thing when I saw some of the players... Continue reading

Reesey in the wind

September 25, 2005 at 11:37 PM

Hurricane Rita didn't bring Dallas a single drop of rain (though it caused serious damage in Houston), but it did cause some slightly windy days. Reesey and I went for a walk during a particularly windy evening, and I of course took a ton of pictures. Check out the photoset or view the slideshow on flickr.... Continue reading

As much as I hate to admit it...

September 25, 2005 at 09:48 PM

I'm one of the biggest Simpsons fans out there, I grew up watching it and think it's one of the funniest, smartest shows of the last 15 years, but The Family Guy is just lightyears funnier right now. It's not even close. It's more over the top hilarious and it's also the master of subtle, intelligent humor.... Continue reading

Why aren't there any sitcoms anymore?

September 20, 2005 at 07:58 PM

We've finally seen a slight decrease in the number of horrible reality shows on television (or maybe at least there are fewer new ones coming this season.) There were even several great dramas last season like Lost and 24. This season looks promising too, I'll definitely be checking out Invasion tomorrow when it premieres. But what's missing from all this? Sitcoms. There's Scrubs and a few complete pieces of crap on the WB and that's... Continue reading

Be a Saint...

September 19, 2005 at 08:17 PM

And support the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund. Reebok is running a very cool promotion right now where 100% of the profits from any New Orleans Saints gear will be donated to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. There's even a couple of really cool t-shirts just for the promotion. This one's so nice looking that even Eli Manning can't dork it up in the commercial. Great way to help out people in need and get something... Continue reading

Addison Oktoberfest

September 17, 2005 at 05:12 PM

Christina and I went to the Oktoberfest in Addison on Saturday. We had a good time, but it was bloody hot out and it was kind of rinky dink. Both in size and stuff to do it sure doesn't hold a candle to Wurstfest in New Braunfels. There wasn't a ton of people, and most were families. Maybe it's more fun after dark. It was also much less German than Wurstfest. Ninety percent of... Continue reading

Nintendo Revolution controller revealed...

September 16, 2005 at 07:34 AM

...and it's freaking weird! And possibly revolutionary. The wireless controller is motion and tilt sensitive, and have the traditional directional pad, face buttons and triggers laid out in a nontraditional way. There will also be separate adapters that plug into the base such as an analog stick (pictured here) to expand the functionality of the base controller. It kind of reminds me of the Gyration wireless handset/mouse in concept and functionality. I'm guessing Nintendo has... Continue reading

Texas beats Ohio State!

September 11, 2005 at 12:09 AM

Texas just beat the Ohio State Buckeyes 25 to 22, I live blogged the entire game over at Bevo Sports. Huge road victory for the Horns over the number four team in the country. The Horns had to fight through some mistakes and didn't play their best game, but with the game on the line in the fourth quarter Vince Young and the defense stepped up. First the good. We just beat the #4... Continue reading

Kanye West makes no sense

September 07, 2005 at 09:56 PM

There's been a lot discussion about Kanye West attacking George Bush during NBC's Concert for Hurricane Relief. But all everyone is talking about is the very last line that George Bush doesn't care about black people. That comment may have been completely off base, but it was probably the only thing he said that was at all decipherable. He started off with some ignorant, incoherent rambling on how he was shopping but shouldn't have... Continue reading

iPod nano announced

September 07, 2005 at 07:44 PM

Well surprise, surprise. Apple announced today that they would be discontinuing the iPod mini and announced the new iPod nano. The nano is a flash based player that is about 60% of the size of the mini. It's available in 2GB and 4GB capacities, has a color screen that can display photos, and comes in traditional Apple white as well as black. Oddly enough the headphone port is on the bottom of the player,... Continue reading

Is Lance Armstrong thinking comeback?

September 05, 2005 at 11:27 PM

According to Lance himself in the Austin-American Statesman he is. I'm thinking about it, Armstrong said. I'm thinking it's the best way to piss (the French) off. I think the French's drug accusations on blood tested six years after the fact are backfiring, now he's going to come back and kick their asses again. Update: Looks like he won't be coming back after all.... Continue reading

2005 NCAA Football Top 25 Poll

September 02, 2005 at 07:20 AM

With the college football season finally getting underway, it's time for me to post my preaseason top 25 teams. This is just my initial gut feelings on each team based on how good I think they'll be and just as importantly on what their schedule looks like. Some of them don't match up at all with the other preseason polls, but this is where I think they're going to finish the season. Southern Cal Texas... Continue reading
