The Top 5 things I command, okay request, you to do over the Memorial Day Weekend. Yes, there will be a pop quiz Tuesday morning.
1. Fly this.
2. Drink this.
3. Eat these.
5. Watch this Monday night at 10. Sports anchor Derek Castillo will present the gripping story I wrote about back in 2005. It’s the tear-jerking tale of a Frisco 12-year-old, Chandler Jackson, killed in a freak golf club accident. Almost three years since her son’s death, Charmane Jackson is turning tragedy into triumph in the form of a fruitful foundation while also bringing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of what she claims are unsafe kids’ clubs. Must-see TV.
P.S. The Stars are about to sign head coach Dave Tippett to a three-year contract extension. So, I guess tip one back for him, eh? -- Richie Whitt
