The Spurs are in the play-in, which is not the same as the playoffs. But it is technically the postseason. So, the 2021-22 San Antonio Spurs are in the postseason. Strange days, indeed. Most peculiar, mama.

Should we all rig our antennae with Spurs flags and go cruise Commerce?

Kareem has apologized to Lebron. Why? Everything he said a couple of days ago about Lebron frequently tarnishing his own legacy was accurate.

Gronk says he’s not now willing or ready to commit to another season. Hold that thought, buddy. Your body has had enough. And your mind is telling you the same thing. Listen to your body and your mind.

I guess we know how Deshaun Watson will spend his lunchbreaks with the Browns. A judge has given Watson 30 days to say whether he had sex with 18 massage therapists who supported him in the wake of 22 lawsuits filed against him by other women. That’s…awkward.

Tiger says he plans to play. Tiger also says he thinks he can win. I know better than to laugh at him.

A farewell and well done to former Vikings DT Doug Sutherland, who died Tuesday at the age of 73. Sutherland was a big part of that Purple People Eaters defensive line, along with Alan Page, Jim Marshall and Carl Eller.

Finally, I keep reading reports that the Cowboys want to sign Julio Jones. Talk about “ambivalence.”  More on that tomorrow.

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.
