Sark says Hudson “Wild” Card will start at QB Saturday against Louisiana, although Casey Thompson will get some PT. Sark says he will “reevaluate” after Week One. Sounds reasonable to me.

Au Jus was gonna clobber Tulane anyway.  But now the Soonists will have the home field advantage.  That game has been moved from New Orleans to Norman because of Ida.

Saints? Damn, they know the drill if anyone does. They’re practicing in Dallas right now. They’re supposed to open the season at home September 12 against the Packers. Superdome is reportedly in pretty good shape.  “Dark” is the problem. I’ll bet you a cheeseburger that game gets moved.

Fully vaxxed NFL players will now get tested every seven days instead of every 14. The NFLPA signed off on that yesterday.

But Carson Wentz…CARSON WENTZ?…is now on the Colts’ COVID reserve list? He had a “close contact” with someone who tested positive. Wentz will be out at least five days. That means, under NFL protocol, that Wentz is unvaccinated. That’s quarterback malpractice.  That’s bullshit.  And that goes for Kirk Cousins in Minnesota, too.

Trey Lance has a finger injury that will keep him out about a week.  That injured digit is the best thing Jimmy G. has going for him.

Finally, there is no doubt there is mutual interest between the Dolphins and Deshaun Watson.  No doubt.  But Miami coach Brian Flores danced the dance yesterday when he said he only wants players of “high character.”  To date, 22 women have not given Watson a ringing endorsement.

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.
