Yeah, I picked the Warriors in six. I won’t wuss out now. But is it starting to look to you like the Celtics are the more complete team?

Let’s hope Steph is ok. I’d love to see this series go the distance.

Houston, we have a problem. There is evidence the Texans acted as enablers for Deshaun Watson. Yeah, that’s a problem. That will end up being a Jolly Roger problem.

Look up the definition of the word “dilemma.” I bet the Cleveland Browns can identify with that. And for now, they have no choice but to keep Baker as their “chick on the side.” But he can’t be seen in the neighborhood, right?                                                                                                                

I have always liked and respected Jack Del Rio. Until for a few hours yesterday when I found out he had referred to the Jan. 6 attempted overthrow at the U.S. Capitol as just a “dustup.” But then Del Rio did what adults of good will do. He apologized and said he was wrong. We’re good.

DeChambeau rhymes with Da Shabby Ho, does it not? Disgusting.

Cooper sure put one in the Kupp Wednesday, didn’t he? Seventy five mill guaranteed over the next three years. “Richly” deserved. Go back and look at that game winning Super Bowl drive. Kupp (yes, with a little help from Mr. Stafford) turned in the greatest big game single drive performance in NFL history. I’ve never seen anything like that.

The Astros just dropped a home series to the Mariners for the first time in four years. Bummer.

The best college team in America, in any sport? OU softball. And it’s not close. Boomer.

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.
