Oklahoma State University President Kayse Shrum says it’s “difficult to believe” that Au Jus would “follow” YooTee “to the detriment of the state of Oklahoma.”

Difficult to believe?  Believe it.  You just got “George P.’ed”

These “Oy-lympics” are a travesty. 2,848 new COVID cases in Tokyo Tuesday, That’s a new one-day record. Lunacy.

Ledecky loses? Osaka loses? Biles pulls out of the team competition? U.S. Men’s Basketball is now U.S. Men’s Basketweaving?  What in the wide, wide world of sports?…

My favorite (only?) current Olympic hero is Pink. Not pink. Pink. She’s offered to pay any fines assessed against the Norwegian Women’s Beach Handball Team for wearing modest shorts in competition rather than the required bikini bottoms. It seems Pink has given the IOC The Blues.

Two questions: 1) What is the IOC actually selling in this sport?

                          2) Beach Handball. Who knew?

We’ll see later today if Rodgers shows up at Packers’ training camp. I still have some doubts. This much we do know. The Packers have offered a level of appeasement that would embarrass Neville Chamberlain. That did not turn out well for Nev. It will not turn out well for the Packers. I’ll take Big Winners for $200, please. “Who is Aaron Rodgers?” Green Bay’s long-term prospects have entered Triple Jeopardy.

The Bengals say it is “highly unlikely” they’ll let Joe Burrow play in the preseason as he continues his recovery from ACL surgery. See, that’s why these NFL Execs make the big bucks.

I love me some Frank Reich.  I hope he’s ok after testing positive for a “breakthrough” infection. He says he feels fine. He’s not in the hospital and he’s not gonna die. Hell, yes, the vaccine works.  Duh.

TEN police complaints against Deshaun Watson? Eight of the complainants are among the 22 women who have filed lawsuits against Watson.

The Chiefs are trying to have it both ways. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) They say they will keep the name “Chiefs.”  But they’re going to retire their horse mascot, “Warpaint.”  Yep. You know what I always say. “When in doubt, blame it on the horse.”

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.
