They’re BAAACCCKK!  I’m talking about the GS Warriors.  You don’t want none. You don’t either.

That was an impressive comeback, Grizzlies. Actually, it was an impressive TWO comebacks. Memphis rallied from 20-plus point deficits in BOTH halves to go up 2-1 over the T-Wolves.

More opportunities for senior candidates for the Pro Football HOF. A max of three senior inductees for the next three years, up from the current single slot. That’s a good thing. There is a huge backlog of deserving seniors.

I can see Daryle Lamonica taking a nine-step drop in my mind’s eye. And I can hear Charlie Jones describing it. So long, Mad Bomber. One more thing. Lamonica was 62-16-6 as the Raiders’ starting QB. DO YOU HEAR WHAT I JUST SAID?

The NFL wants to force the Brian Flores lawsuit into arbitration. Yeah, I bet the league does want that. I want to win the lottery.

The Titans say they “don’t foresee” trading A.J. Brown. Yes. I “don’t foresee” cutting off my right hand and feeding it to a pack of wolves. Interesting that Brown and Deebo Samuel have the same agent. This recent “re-set” of the WR market is causing untold chaos.

I’m getting a stinky vibe coming out of Arizona. This Kyler Murray thing is going to be a trainwreck.  And I’m pretty well done with Murray, anyway. “Immature” is an understatement. “Punk” works better.

Why would you want to pick a fight with Mike Tyson? On a plane? Or anywhere else? My first impression after seeing the video was that Tyson displayed admirable restraint.

Rookie quarterbacks available in the Draft? I like Matt Corral from Ole Miss a lot. But I have the same reservations about him I had about Josh Rosen a few years ago. That skinny little frame isn’t gonna hold up.

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.
