The Eagles looked sloppy at times. But they also look 2-0. And they can run the ball, Thursday night to the tune of 259 yards.

The Vikings have lost eight fumbles in two games. That’s a big reason why they’re 0-2.

Aaron Rodgers says his Achilles surgery went “great.” Zach Wilson says he wants to be just like his “big bro” Aaron Rodgers when he grows up. Good luck with that. Let’s see how Wilson plays Sunday against the Cowboys.

Gee, there’s nothing like a public clash between an NFL player and a team-employed social media reporter, right? A hot mic prior to a Bills news conference captured reporter Maddy Glab saying about Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs, “He’ll look in my face and say f— you, That’s how he treats everybody.” After that remark caught fire on social media, Diggs responded in a series of posts, denying he had ever said anything like that to Glab and calling her words “hurtful” and “insulting.” Glab has apologized for her comments and now says that Diggs treats the media with “lots of respect.” I’m guessing Diggs will still be on the Bills’ payroll long after Glab is.

That will be quite the contrast in styles tonight at the Alamo Dome as UTSA hosts Army. For that reason, this one could be a little tougher than Roadrunner fans are expecting.

Players on the men’s basketball team at Dartmouth are attempting to unionize. This will get interesting, legally. The question is whether college players are employees of the schools for which they play.

Yep, these are different times in collegiate sports. Ole Miss DT DeSanto Rollins says he was recently kicked off the team for missing practices. Rollins says he was going through a “mental health crisis” and has filed a $10 million dollar lawsuit against the university and head coach Lane Kiffin for racial and sexual discrimination, as well as failure to provide equal protection. Ole Miss says Rollins was never dismissed from the team and remains on scholarship.

Now why did Colorado State football coach Jay Norvell do that? Why did he get on his radio show and go after Colorado Coach Deion Sanders for his habit of wearing hats and sunglasses during news conferences? Said Norvell, “When I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat and my glasses off. That’s what my mother taught me.”  Here’s what my mother taught me. Don’t piss off Coach Prime, who says “They done messed around and made it personal.” Take the Buffs on Saturday and lay the points—whatever the spread.

Dustin Johnson says his defection to The Murderous Saudi Tour likely cost him a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. He’s probably right. And I’m fine with that.

The Rangers completed a four-game series sweep of the Blue Jays to extend Texas’ overall win streak to six and move them within a half-game of the AL West leading Astros.

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.
