College football needs a playoff

August 30, 2005 at 06:30 PM

Editor's note: Bobby Burton of Rivals.com has a birthday wish today, to air his thoughts on the ridiculousness that is the lack of a playoff system in NCAA Division 1 football. His thoughts echo mine and most sports fans pretty damn well. Feel free to pass this on... Today is my birthday - I'm 36 today. Or, as my dad put it this morning, I'm halfway home. But before I reach "home," there is a... Continue reading

August 26, 2005 at 10:29 PM

I had no idea Paul Giamatti (of Sideways fame as well as Cinderella Man, easily the movie of the year) was the son of the late A. Bartlett Giamatti. The elder Giamatti was briefly commissioner of Major League Baseball and permanently banned Pete Rose from the game before passing on five months into his tenure.... Continue reading

August 25, 2005 at 09:29 PM

The official release of Movable Type 3.2 is now available. I've been running the beta on another site for a while and I've been very pleased. Easier to use and a ton of new features. Better comment spam tools, multiblog management, new better looking styles, and a more powerful, more integrated plugin system. Despite the slight bump in version number, this is a major upgrade. Upgrading is super simple so there's no reason to put... Continue reading

Gas prices blow...

August 18, 2005 at 10:16 PM

...And DART agrees. You know it's a bad sign when gas goes up four cents when you're eating lunch and 24 cents over the course of three days. I swerved across three lanes of traffic just to get gas that was only $2.41 per gallon. I'm sure glad I get 5% cash back on all my gas purchases with my Citi MasterCard.... Continue reading

House Hunting

August 02, 2005 at 09:23 PM

Christina and I have started to look into buying a house next summer and so we went last weekend and visited our first open house. We went to see some DR Horton homes up in McKinney and are pretty excited. We're still very early on in our search but we had a good time and learned a lot. For one thing, the neighborhood is almost as important the house. So many of those mid-level... Continue reading
