The Wild, Wild (AFC) West! Can we start the season, like, a week from Sunday? College Bulldog Bros now reunited in Vegas?  Kegger!

Has anybody done a welfare check on Aaron Rodgers?

Yes, the Packers do now have four picks in the top 50 of next month’s draft. But they don’t have Davante Adams.

Because of the Adams trade, this one slipped under the radar. But that is a nifty pick-up by the Rams. Allen Robinson is a very good receiver.

So Cole Beasley is on the street. Hard pass.

My guess is we’ll find out where Deshaun Watson lands by Happy Hour today. My next guess is that the party will be on Bourbon Street. Atlanta gets too complicated because of the Matt Ryan thing. But…

That’s a messed up deal in Cleveland now, isn’t it? “Windin’ your way down on Baker Street…”

Bey got 51 last night. Trump says he only respects players who drop 60. You want real March Madness? That was the NBA’s eighth fifty-point game this month.

Saint Peter’s won. That means Kentucky lost. That makes me happy. Not a Calipari fan. Calamari, yes. Calipari, no.

Yeah, I’ll sit down and watch Texas vs. Virginia Tech this afternoon. Also Houston vs. UAB tonight. Coogs are my favorite team left in The Toarrnament. Damn, they play hard!

Can’t wait for all the squawking grandstanding today from Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis. Yeah, Lia Thomas won a swimming race. I’m pretty sure Earth is still on its axis.

Stay strong, Brittney.

If you’re up early, Chris Duel and Salty Sweeney have invited me onto their wonderful sportstalk radio show for a segment at 7:06 this morning on The Ticket 760 in San Antonio and A.M. 1300 in Austin. A good time will be had by all!

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.
