It’s time for the surviving members of the undefeated ’72 Dolphins to raise a glass. Buy ‘em all a “Heinicke.”

Look, the Eagles were never going to run the table. But I am surprised at the WAY they lost at home Monday night. Sloppy. Unfocused. Undisciplined. Uninspired.

Still, that was quite the 8-0 run by the Eagles to start the season. They’ll be fine. (As will the Bills.)

One more takeaway from that game and I’ll move on. The Commanders will be a PROBLEM for the rest of the season. And…that’s a wrap on Carson Wentz’s career as a starting NFL QB.

Just something to ponder. Not a judgment on my part. The Rams went all out to win the SB last season, dealing away all of their draft picks through the 23rd Century. And now they are bad. I mean really bad. I mean rotten. And it’s not gonna get better anytime soon. I was however relieved to learn that Cooper Kupp’s injury (high ankle sprain) wasn’t worse. That looked gruesome.

Looks like the Saints are going back to Jameis. It won’t matter much.

Mark Davis says “Rome was not built in a day.” OK. But he should still fire Josh McDaniels before sundown.

Dang. North Carolina is 9-1. Mack has done a helluva job.

Somebody explain to me how UCLA lost to Arizona. I’ll wait…

Fun fact to know and tell.  The Incarnate Word Cardinals have scored 516 points through ten games. That’s 184 more points than the next highest scoring team in the Southland Conference (Southeastern Louisiana, 332). Only a grinch would point out that Southeastern nevertheless dealt the Cards (9-1) their only loss of the season.

I guess Yasiel Puig won’t make the Hall of Fame…

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.
