Miles Garrett is lucky to be alive. He’s even luckier that he will be able to play Sunday against the Chargers, less than two weeks after the car crash that could have taken his life and that of a passenger. Slow down, Garrett!

I like this about Packers coach Matt LeFleur. He despises this London bullshit almost as much as I do.

You know what distinguishes this season’s Patriots team? Absolutely nothing. And I don’t see that changing anytime soon. 

If there’s such a thing as a Must Win Game for an NFL team in Week Five, it’s what the 1-3 Saints are facing Sunday against the Seahawks. Andy Dalton gets the start in place of the injured Jameis.

Bengals-Ravens will be Sunday’s best game.

I’m not sure what I think yet about Cowboys-Rams, which is why I will hold off on that discussion until Sunday morning in this space.

Who leaked that video of Draymond Green punching out teammate Jordan Poole in practice?   Wudden me…

Until Friday night, FBS teams were 0-129 this season when trailing by 19 or more points in the fourth quarter. That was until Houston hung 26 fourth-quarter points on Memphis to erase a 19-point deficit and beat Memphis 33-32. Nicely done, Coogs.

C’mon, NFL. No more foot-dragging on making the concussion protocol more stringent. Get it done. Today. Saturday.So that it will be in place tomorrow, Sunday.

Yeesh. That was a bad late blowup Cards on the first day of the new and expanded MLB playoffs. That means the careers of Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina could end today in St. Loo.

You know what I really liked about the Guardians’ Game One win over the Rays? The game took two hours and 17 minutes. Time is money, man!

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.
