Let’s go, Serena!  One more run!  Do it!

Looks like Jimmy G. is staying with the Niners in 2022. Makes sense to me. Always has. He’ll get a fresh start with another team next season, and will avoid being a one-year caretaker somewhere. I know the price tag is steep, but this is also good for SF. Jimmy G. will be available if Lance goes down or flames out.

It’s cutdown day in the NFL. It’s dangerous for a player to make too much money. The Dolphins have bid adieu to veteran running back Sony Michel. And the Titans have released three-time Pro Bowl punter Brett Kern.

Saddened to learn of the death at 86 of longtime legendary NFL offensive coordinator Ernie Zampese. Among other things, he managed to make Barry Switzer look good.

Chicks still dig the long ball. That’s 50 for Aaron Judge. And it is not yet September. And Pujols has now taken 450 different pitchers yard in his amazing MLB career.

Rams running back Cam Akers is a heckuva player when he’s healthy. He’s healthy again, as is fellow LA RB Darrell Henderson. Both had missed time with soft tissue injuries.

This news is wonderful. There’s a chance that Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson will play at some point this season, despite being shot twice in his lower body during an attempted robbery on Sunday. Yes!  Robinson might be released from the hospital this afternoon.

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.
