That’s four pennants in six years. Now it’s time to get Dusty his first World Series title.

Oh, and you do realize that the Astros might be even better next year, right? Remarkable.

But there is this. Verlander is 0-6 in seven World Series starts. Just keepin’ it real…

And, no, I am not overlooking the Phillies.

It’s a shame we all have to wait until Friday, doncha think?

I don’t know why I’m hearing so many Cowboy fans putting a verbal “asterisk” next to Sunday’s 24-6 victory over the Lions. That was a good win, period. The Lions have a strong offense, and they didn’t score a touchdown. Dallas got Zeke and Tony going. Dak is back. There’s no reason to look that “W” in the mouth.

Now the Boys will play all four members of the NFC North on consecutive weeks, starting with the Bears next Sunday in Arlington.

The less said about the Texans, the better.

Right now it appears the Chiefs, Bills and Eagles (in whatever order you prefer) have separated from the other 29 NFL teams. Kansas City made a strong statement in hanging 44 on the 49ers. The Chiefs averaged 9.1 yards per play in dropping SF to 3-4.

And speaking of 3-4, we introduce Aaron Rodgers and the Packers along with Tom Brady and the Bucs.

Seeing Mike Evans kick that wide-open deep ball provided the perfect visual metaphor for the Bucs’ decline. Tampa Bay has lost four of its last five. The Buccaneers can’t run the ball a lick, and now suddenly they can’t stop the run, either.

Saquon rushes for 110. Daniel Jones (who is a much better athlete than most people realize) adds 107. And that’s how the Giants have gotten to 6-1.

The Jets are looking great at 5-2. But I’m just sick about the knee injury suffered by rookie running sensation Breece Hall.

Does Denver still have an NFL team?

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.
