My Ideal Job

My Ideal Job

I’m sitting at the Gateway Cafe in Southlake, TX, wondering what it would take to walk away from everything… …I don’t know. Maybe it’s the Earl Grey Latte I’m drinking and the gloomy weather outside, but my mind is restless and it has wandered. Now, when I say “everything,” let me qualify that to mean my career, my business, my job. Not “every”thing… just everything that is my work. I’ve…

Mark McGwire’s Admission

Today Mark McGwire admitted to his use of steriods.  We all knew that, and in many ways McGwire already admitted to much of that when he was a player, and were not banned substances at the time anyway.  They may have been hush-hush, but not banned. Anyway, whether you confess and apologize on the spot, or down the road, it’s always the right time.  I support him in what he…

Spring Baseball With The Blue Rangers

Josh’s team ended up 7-4.  Had a blast going to practice and the games.  Here’s some footage of the last couple of games.  I missed a lot of footage, naturally, but this will give you a taste of the greatness.

Nothing Like the Stanley Cup Playoffs

Two posts in a row here about the Dallas Stars and the Stanley Cup playoffs… but I was at game 6 to watch the Stars beat the Ducks last night, eliminating the Ducks and moving on to round 2.  You talk about exciting!  I don’t think I’ve ever been in an arena that was more intense, electric, loud, and fun.  The place was hoppin! When Robida scored in the 3rd…

In The Presence of the Cup!

I am all about hockey.  I’ve had a blast this past season as a partial season ticket holder to the Dallas Stars.  Last night was the first playoff game I’ve been to, and it just made me realize that there is no other playoff series like Stanley Cup hockey.  Football, baseball, soccer, basketball… none come even close to the intensity, speed, tenacity, skill, determination, and perseverance that it takes to…

Roger Clemens Inspires New Word – Impenouchable

I don’t know if you’ve been following the Congressional hearings of McNamee vs. Clemens… but it is both a joke and sad at the same time. I got to thinking about this, and a new word came to my mind.  Be looking for this word in the next edition of Webster’s Dictionary. impenouchable  noun  /im-pen-uhch-a-buhl/  – a person who believes they are above reproach as to honesty, not to be held…
