Let’s end it tonight, Astros. In Framber we trust.

Because of pending litigation, Pop rightly said Friday that he cannot comment on the specific allegations made by former Spurs psychological counselor Dr. Hillary Cauthen. But Popovich did defend the Spurs organization and its track record, saying he is confident that club management handled her allegations promptly, properly and sensitively. Dr. Cauthen holds a different view. Buckle up, everyone.

You mean I’m not gonna be able to buy a pair of Kyrie 8s?

Without injured receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, I don’t see how the Chargers can beat the Falcons Sunday. Yes. The Falcons should be favored over the Chargers.

And before the Sun goes down Sunday, all four NFC East teams will be above .500. Because the Commanders are going to beat the 6-1 Vikings. If I’m right, that will be four straight wins for Washington. And if I’m right, the Commanders will climb above .500 for the first time in Ron Rivera’s coaching tenure in Washington.

Which team will quit first? The Bucs or the Rams. Because one of them will quit.

The Patriots are average as Tuesday’s laundry, but they can stop the run. And besides that, the Colts will be without Jonathan Taylor. New England wins, and Sam Ehlinger is in for a very rough day.

The Cardinals are a hot mess. But, dang, have you watched D-Hopkins since his return from that PED suspension? He’s so good he may be able to at least temporarily save Kliffy’s job.

Saddened by the passing of former All-Pro defensive lineman Dave Butz. He was a key part of two Washington Super Bowl championships. The former Purdue Boilermaker was also inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2014. Butz was 72.

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.
