USWNT Coach Vlato Andonovski will formally resign today. Yes, this is a forced resignation. What was he expecting? A ticker-tape parade?

I’m sure Yankees manager Aaron Boone can feel Vlato’s pain. NY just got swept by the Braves to fall below .500 for the first time this season. That’s five straight losses, leaving the Yanks in grave danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2016. Adios, Aaron.

Wednesday was a good night. It’s always a good night when the Astros win and the Rangers lose. Houston blasted out of the blocks with first-inning homers from Bregman,
Tucker and McCormick en route to a 12-5 win over the Marlins.

Texas got skunked by the Angels 2-0. LA’s Reid Detmers carried a no-no into the eighth, and Shohei Ohtani smacked his 42nd homer to reduce the Rangers’ lead in the AL West to two-and-a-half games.

Houston opens a big weekend three-game set against the Mariners Friday night at Minute-Maid with Jose Altuve just three hits away from 2,000.

Hey, Micah Parsons! I love you, but knock off the fighting at camp. Camp fighting is bad. Everybody says so.

Everybody, that is, except Colorado Buffs Coach Deion Sanders. Prime Time chewed out his team Wednesday for NOT joining a skirmish at practice. “If one fights, we all fight.” That, uhh, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.

That leg injury suffered Wednesday by Titans’ WR Trelon Burks looked bad. I’ll keep hoping for the best. I think that guy has unlimited potential.

Sadly, there’s no mystery about the status of Tampa Bay WR Russell Gage. He’s lost for the year with, what else, a non-contact knee injury.

The Jets’ patch-work offensive line (because of injuries) gave up six sacks in a span of ten snaps during a joint workout with the Bucs. Rodgers says he’s not worried. Rodgers is not telling the truth.

Now you see him, now you don’t. I’m talking about Colts’ RB Jonathan Taylor. No sooner had he returned to camp in the middle of his contract dispute than he left again, this time to attend to what the club calls “a personal matter.” The Colts say this absence is excused.

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.
