Rushing Dak back?  Hey, Lil’ Abner. Are you familiar with the biological term “opposable thumb”? Well, I’m opposed to the way you’re dealing with Prescott’s thumb. Forcing him back in four weeks is a great way to lose him for the rest of the season. This is no way to run a railroad. This is football malpractice.

As is attempting a 64-yard field goal on 4th and 5 with the game on the line rather than letting your newly-acquired gazillion dollar QB try to make a play against his former team. Wilson said all the right company man things after the game, but you know his relationship with Nathaniel Hackett is now on shaky ground. You just humiliated your QB, Hack. Athletes have a “thing” about getting embarrassed. Hackett conceded Tuesday that he made a bad decision. He also confirmed that water is wet.

The Arizona Cardinals are a mess. That’s it for now.

Looks like the Steelers have avoided a large “pec” of trouble. T.J. Watt is expected back in about six weeks, rather than undergoing season-ending surgery. And, no, this is not analogous to the Dak situation, so don’t even think about going down that road with me.

Lest you be Judged.  Dang! Homers 56 and 57 for Aaron. That’s a lot.

Win Number 92 for the Astros. Lock up that home field in the AL postseason!

Does anybody have a chance to beat the Dodgers in the NL? I’m gonna say no.

That’s a bad look, Mr. Favre. Siphoning off welfare funds? And at-the-time Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant helped? This is being described as the largest case of public fraud in Mississippi history. Because, you know, it is. And texts reveal Brett knew what he was doing was wrong.

If you’ve been following the cesspool that is the Phoenix Suns for the last couple of years, you can only conclude that team owner Robert Sarver got off light with “only” a one-year suspension and a $10 million fine. Disgusting.

Wanna get down on the Detroit Lions? They’re betting favorites over the Commanders on Sunday. First time the Lions have been faves in 24 straight games.

I’m stopping short of predicting an upset. But I will say that UTSA is catching the Longhorns at exactly the right time.

So Jimbo Fisher is an offensive genius. Just like Donald Trump is a brilliant businessman.

Hmmm. What a surprise. Next month’s climactic event on the Murderous Saudi Blood Money Sportswashing Golf Tour will be played at…wait for it…Trump National Doral Miami. Whoda thunk that?

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.
