There is some no-kidding pressure on the Warriors tonight in Game Two. You don’t wanna get in an 0-2 hole and then have to head East. Nothing seems to bother the Celtics, ever. That’s a good quality for any team in any sport.

And the Brittney Griner shirts? Classy.

Relative to any particular sport at any particular level, is the OU softball team the most dominant team in ‘Murca?  I’ll answer There my own question. Yes.

That was a beautiful third round put together by Billy Horschel Saturday at The Memorial. Horschel has a five-shot lead after posting a 7-under 65, and hasn’t made a bogey since the tenth hole of his opening round on Thursday. But what most got my attention was Horschel’s post-round interview with CBS’ Amanda Renner. Damn! Horschel’s motor runs HOT! And he’s not hurting for confidence, either. Fine by me.

Here’s what’s not fine. Kevin Na has decided to resign from the PGA Tour to hook up with the Saudi Murderers’ Circuit. Was that a good idea? Na, it wasn’t.

Jordan Love? I’m not impressed. Never have been. Nothing personal. I just don’t think he can play. The Packers are gonna have to figure out what to do with him, since it appears this coming season will likely be Rodgers’ last. (Yeah, I know. A-Rod could be yanking us all around yet again…)

The Royals broke their five-game skid and put an end to the ‘Stros five-game streak. Bummer.

How difficult and humbling is baseball? Mike Trout, the best baseball player currently walking Earff, is oh-for-his-last-23. I blame that fantasy football league.

I’m just sharing a marmalade sandwich with Paddington Bear. Happy Sunday to 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.
