The best reason to try out for the Dallas Desperados, we're thinking.
Scattershooting … while wondering whatever happened to this guy.
If the VIP newsletter scam dug the hole, Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione nailed shut his coffin last week against Tech. Famous last words (in, of course, Fran’s wimpy, squeaky voice): “We’re just gonna keep on doing what we do, doing what we’ve been doing.” At the time -- entering the halftime locker room -- A&M trailed 21-7. True to his word, the Aggies kept on keeping on and lost, 35-7. R.C., you busy? ...
Trust me on this. Sooner rather than later Dallas Cowboys receiver Patrick Crayton will try a reverse pass ...
Your weekly -- and, who are we kidding, it could be daily -- Emmitt Smith gaffe comes from last Monday night, when he fumbled an attempted explanation of the Atlanta Falcons’ current demise: “It's going to be a long fall.

There's no way Ticket bosses like that ...
If you hate me in print and online, you’ll loathe me on the air. Tune in to Live 105.3 FM and the Dan and Tasos show Saturday night at 10 and I’ll do my best to justify your abhorrence. Look it up. --Richie Whitt
