“Everybody needs a little time away….”   Bryson DeChambeau and his caddie aren’t officially breaking up, but they are going to spend some time “away” from each other.  I can dig it. I like Bryson, but I bet he’s harder to work for than Ray Charles was.

If I even think about writing something about Trevor Bauer, you can…never mind.

Great team ball by the Bucks last night.  No Giannis? No problem. Four Bucks with 20 or more in a 123-112 Game Five win.  Teams up 3-2 win best-of-seven series 84 percent of the time.

The Jolly Roger turns into the Midnight Rider. Goodell lights Dan Snyder up for $10 million. You can tell me that’s pocket change, but this is significant. Snyder is still the owner of the WFT, but wife Tanya now runs the team day-to-day. That franchise’s culture has been very sick for a very long time.

But the NFL raps the Cowboys, Niners and Jags for OTA violations? Whatever. The only thing we knew for sure here is that Urban Meyer was gonna go rogue. Theboycainthepphizseff.

Nice try, Reggie Bush! But no, you don’t get your Heisman back. Get outta here.

I’m not gonna bust Sha’Carri Richardson. She messed up. She owned it. I’m not gonna pile on.

Astros break their losing streak!  I’m gonna celebrate like it’s the Fourth of July weekend!

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
