My random thoughts…brought to you once a week.

  • Tribute to the Little Man on Wakefield: I see this little dude every morning on my daughter’s daycare drop off. He walks down Wakefield Street. His destination…unknown. He’s probably in his 80’s, wears one of those 1920’s hats, and has a finely manicured mustache. Every time I pass him, he makes me think of the Dos Equis guy. I think at one time the little man that walks down Wakefield was the coolest man on the planet.
  • You know I’m not big on chain places. But d@mn if I couldn’t eat a Panera Cinnamon Crunch Bagel every morning for the rest of my life.
  • Football Alert! If you hate it, skip this part. If you’re not from Houston, you probably want to skip this part. I love the Texans. They disappoint me every single year, but who cares? These are my five main concerns going into the year:
1. QB situation: This is an easy one. Schaub will get hurt. It’s not a matter of if but when. Their backup QB situation is a mess. Orlovsky looks like he’s about to wet himself every time he throws and Leinart is just not good.
2. Young Corners:
Not many people are talking about this, but it’s a big concern for me. I’d feel a lot better with DRob back there.

3. Running Backs:
All aboard the Arian Foster bandwagon…just one problem, he’s never played a full season. That means in all likelihood he’ll either get hurt or run out of gas. I predict Slaton is done. Think the Texans wish they would have given Thomas Jones two million for this year?

4. Kubiak’s Coaching:
Nice man, but way below average in clock management and quick, in-game decisions. Will cost the team 1-2 wins.

5. Weaker Cushing:
Allegedly Brian Cushing took steroids. I remember when another top LB got busted (Merriman). He never was the same. I’m not saying this will happen with Cushing, but it does warrant keeping an eye on.
  • Gym Membership: D-Bags Notice I made it plural. D-Bags workout in pairs…never alone. D-Bags are distant cousins of the Prancer. D-Bags are in their early 20’s, chiseled, and sleeveless. They have college degrees, but are still dumber than a post. The D-Bags’ vocabulary revolves around using the f-word at least four times in every sentence. D-Bags are easily identified by the jug of “Red Drank” they haul around. This “Red Drank” helps D-Bags’ muscles grow. I had the pleasure of lifting weights next to D-Bags the other day. Lucky me.
  • Facebook Folly of the Week: Picture Woman You know that expression “A picture is worth a thousand words”? Well, what about 1000 pictures? Picture Woman takes 1000 pics of her weekend va-ca to the Hill Country, and posts every single one on Facebook. I’m all for posting beautiful pics on Facebook. I don’t enjoy ten consecutive pics of Picture Woman flashing the peace sign at me.

I don't understand the hate on local teams. Fine, the Texans, Astros and Rockets break my heart every year but I would never, ever break up with them. I'm not a bandwagon fan either. I HATE the Cowboys and I don't care that my husband loves them, I will never jump on the bandwagon that is the Cowboys.

Not hating on my teams, just concerned. I despise the Cowboys, but I hate the Titans even more because of Bud Adams.

Oh, I didn't mean it to say you were hating on them. I've just encountered so many people hating their home team. Speaking of that DB Bud Adams, these same people jumped on the wagon when the Titans went to the Super Bowl. I still remember the toilet paper made with his face on it. I regret never purchasing any.
