Suns players are saying they’re not nervous about Game Seven against the Mavs today. I’ll take that bet.

One hundred career homers for Shohei Ohtani. I’ve been told he’s a decent pitcher, too.

Dangit, Astros! You can only win eleven in a row? Just give the ball to Justin today and start a new streak.

Former Longhorns Seahawks and Ravens safety Earl Thomas is from Orange, Texas. One would assume he’s pretty recognizable in that town. Thomas walked into a restaurant in Orange on Friday and promptly got arrested by Orange PD. Two weeks ago, a warrant was issued in Austin charging Thomas with violating a court protective order by sending threatening messages to the mother of his children. The 33-year-old Thomas has said he wants to return to the NFL after a two-year absence. I’m guessing this will not aid in that effort.

Michael Thomas. Jarvis Landry. And now rookie Chris Olave. You can’t say you don’t have anybody to throw it to, Jameis Winston. A healthy Saints team could be a very tough out in the NFC South.

Who wouldn’t want a commitment from General Booty? The Au Jus Sooners got just that Saturday from this former Tyler JC quarterback. General Booty sounds like a season pass.

Pray for peace today in Milwaukee. Pray for peace today in Buffalo. Pray for peace today everywhere.

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.
