The Spurs are 21-59 on the season, but now 1-0 in “home” games played in Austin following Thursday’s 129-127 win over the Blazers.

Get ready. “And now….introducing tonight’s starting lineup for YOUR…CORRIDOR…CONDORS!” It’s comin’.

Jon Rahm is a man after my own heart. One of my core principles is that a day that starts badly doesn’t have to end badly. You never give up on a day, right? Rahm took a double-bogey on the first hole at The Masters Thursday, but then turned it into a seven-under-par 65. Rahm is now tied for the lead with Brooks Koepka, who used to be my favorite golfer until he went over to the Murderous Saudi Side.

Oh and as for you, Sergio Garcia?  Please shut up. Please shut up.

Tyreek Hill is a man with a plan. The Dolphins WR says he plans to retire from the NFL following the 2025 season, which would cap a ten-year pro career. Sounds sane to me.

New regulations issued Thursday by the U.S. Department of Education regarding transgender athletic competition are just going to further muddy the waters. More here next week, but I already have a Friday morning headache and I don’t want to make it worse either for me or for you.

Peace to all. I invite you to hit the “blog” tab at and scroll down to the “Be Our Guest” section. Our RR buddy and partner Anthony Pittman has written a brilliant column examining The Meedja’s disgraceful and irresponsible mishandling of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Finals Flaps. Check it out.

Friendly note to Angel Reese. You have really put your team, your coach and your university in a sticky spot. Just learn from it.

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.
