The Ennbeeay says it has no problem with Wemby making his league and Spurs debut in a pre-summer league mini-tournament in Sacramento. Good. Why would that be an issue?

I sense no tension whatsoever in the negotiations between the Chargers and Justin Herbert on a new contract. Herbert is going to get the biggest deal in league history. He knows it. The Chargers know it. Everybody’s cool. Zero drama.

You know who else is cool? Trevor Lawrence. The young man has been through a lot in his short time in the NFL. And he now looks like the budding superstar everyone predicted he would be when he came out of Clemson. And he now plays on a good team. Sleep on the Jags at your own peril.

Continuing with the “no drama” theme of this blog, it was great to see everyone smiling, relaxed and on their best behavior at the White House Monday as President Biden hosted the Super Bowl champion Chiefs. Everyone everywhere should “go to school” on that.

The Cowboys are looking to fill the last slot in their WR room. Dallas Monday worked out former Patriots first-round draft pick N’Keal Harry. That guy was more than just disappointing in New England, but he has always intrigued me, and continues to.

That’s a bad look, man. I’m talking about former Vikings part-owner Reginald Fowler, who is going to the hole for six-plus years for defrauding the now-defunct Alliance of American Football in a $700 million crypto scam. All y’all feel free to explain the whole crypto thing to Coach. But this does help explain why the AAF suddenly run out of money in 2019, does it not?

I think it’s great that the Bills’ new $1.54 billion stadium will be an outdoor venue. It’s Buffalo. Be Buffalo. The new crib will be good-to-go in 2026. Natural grass, too!

I think the Texans will win seven games. You heard me.

Missed it by this much. PGA hero Michael Block came up two shots short Monday in his attempt to qualify for next week’s U.S. Open. But he will be in the field for the Canadian Open, which starts Thursday in Toronto.

Is the Au Jus Sooners softball team the best squad in all of college sports? Ima say yes.

The growing gambling cloud that is building up over the NFL could bring the whole thing down. Colts cornerback Isaiah Rodgers looks like the latest scofflaw. Jolly Roger better get this crap under control, stat.

The ‘Stros have won eight of their last 11 and 19 of 25. I just thought you needed to know that.

Are the Golden Knights going to sweep the Panthers? That looks like a distinct possibility in light of their dominance in the first two games of The Final. At least that’s my expert hockey analysis.

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.
