Never seen this before

I've never seen a head coach High-5 the quarterback of the opposing team. But then not sure I've ever seen a quarterback like Trevone Boykin. That may have been his "Heisman moment".

That's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see how it pays off...

A friend of mine, Tony Nunes, is an actor in LA. He's featured in a new series of Kellogg's commercials "Tony is Back". They are hilarious!

Longhorns Pregame Video

The Texas Longhorns, who have been struggling with a very tough season, were shown this motivational video before they stepped onto the field against the Oklahoma Sooners last Saturday.

It worked.

The 17 point underdog Longhorns defeated Oklahoma 24 - 17.

Mystery of the ISIS Toyotas solved

The Ron Paul Institute solves the mystery:
US foundation-funded Public Radio International (PRI) reported in a 2014 article titled, “This one Toyota pickup truck is at the top of the shopping list for the Free Syrian Army — and the Taliban,” that: 
Recently, when the US State Department resumed sending non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels, the delivery list included 43 Toyota trucks.
Hiluxes were on the Free Syrian Army’s wish list. Oubai Shahbander, a Washington-based advisor to the Syrian National Coalition, is a fan of the truck.
“Specific equipment like the Toyota Hiluxes are what we refer to as force enablers for the moderate opposition forces on the ground,” he adds. Shahbander says the US-supplied pickups will be delivering troops and supplies into battle. Some of the fleet will even become battlefield weapons.

Of course the Toyotas are just a drop in the bucket compared to the M1 Abrams main battle tanks and support equipment that we gave them.

Military Industrial Complex? Who could have imagined such a thing?

But Blue Bell is back!

Blue Bell workers detail unsanitary conditions inside plant

"The response I got at one point was, is that all you're going to do is come here and bitch every afternoon?" 

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Not one bite until the executives in charge are held accountable.

In Case You Missed The Game Saturday...

That's a fine looking hat!

Hey Buddy-san, Got a light?

Everything does down the pooper at 4:55.

Lessons learned:

  • A little lighter fluid goes a long way.
  • A little water does not.
  • Cardboard boxes are lousy fire extinguishers.

So How Did Your Weekend Go?

Personally, I watched Texas get embarrassed by TCU.

The next day I broke my left thumb working on a plow with a sledgehammer.
Trust me, I know what I'm doing.

Other than that, everything's copasetic.
