Apparently, Head & Shoulders and Old Spice have teamed up to create a deodorizing shampoo. And Proctor & Gamble has apparently apparently picked C.J. Wilson and Josh Hamilton to pitch it. They co-star in the commercial above, with a cameo from Hamilton's wife.

We tried not to hold it against Josh Hamilton for his occasional trip to Sherlock's, his ridiculous energy drink addiction, his snooze-worthy line of Christian clothing, and last year's collapse.
And while that bungled fly ball -- you know the one -- was hard to forgive, that didn't change the fact ... More >>
Last night, a group of people were standing outside Sherlock's, a bar and restaurant in North Dallas, when a man approached. He carried a pistol and, according to police, he demanded money from someone.
It was a moment many of us script in our heads when we read these types of stories: Do you give ... More >>
"The Josh Hamilton relapse: What does it mean?" one headline blared, after Hamilton got drunk at a Dallas bar earlier this year. "Hamilton's slip could cost him millions," another professed. And we all thought: Sure, that makes sense. A couple teams get scared off, demand drops, price drops.
But th ... More >>
Bon IverWhile it's been a great year for concerts in the 'hood, it'd be too easy to simply list my favorite concerts of 2011 (Bon Iver/Kathleen Edwards at the Winspear Opera House in September edges out the Carolina Chocolate Drops at the Granada that same month). Instead, let's focus on the ... More >>
You know what I think of women's sports. Why watch them when you can see men run faster, jump higher or hit the ball longer?
And you know what I think of soccer. A potentially entertaining game is ruined by archaic offsides rules, ridiculous fake injuries and the worst officiating of ... More >>
Monday I watched both Williams sisters lose at Wimbledon, a week after Andy Roddick bowed out. It leaves as the only American quarterfinalist gentlemen's 10th seed Mardy Fish, a 29-year-old doubles specialist who will hardly threatening Rafael Nadal's throne.
We heard a b ... More >>
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:
*Love the Mavs' draft. Turning the 26th pick into Rudy Fernandez is a big win. Think of Fernandez, 26 and a three-year veteran with the Blazers, as a younger, better Peja Stojakovi ... More >>
I'm sure the Sixth Floor Museum will be buzzing. Southfork Ranch. And, unless I'm gauging folks way wrong, during the upcoming Super Bowl week the gentlemen's establishments around D-FW will be jammed as well.
But for football fans -- visitors and locals -- there's something you just gotta see.

Happy Birthday, America.
Like tonight's July 5th fireworks show in Dallas, it's better late than never. Right?
Our country turned the ripe old age of 234 on Sunday. Between burgers and beers and bikinis, I tried to spend some time remembering how friggin' fortunate we are to ha ... More >>
This week's column in the Dallas Observer wasn't more dogpiling on Josh Hamilton, but rather some perspective on how unfairly most of us (yeah, I'm pointing at me) jumped on Josh Howard.

Granted, it would force me to actually watch the ridiculousy cheesy show, but I'd be willing to stomach Dancing With The Stars' sequins and sass and smarminess of Tom Bergeron if only I could orchestrate whom was boogieing down with whom.
Following in the "Foxtrot" footsteps of Emmitt S ... More >>
DeadspinFormer Highland Park star and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had himself quite the summer bash recently. Girls in bikinis. Dirty dancing. Some sort of beverages in those same red cups that I serve alcohol in at my pool parties.
Who knows, maybe whipped cream made a came ... More >>
Fine, then you try to explain it. Call him the Dallas Wowboy.
In my years as a sportswriter I've come to appreciate lots of athletes. For the most part, I could comprehend and sorta explain their greatness. Troy Aikman's mechanically flawless accuracy. Jason Kidd's uncanny peripheral vision. ... More >>
Stay classy, Kenyon Martin's girlfriend. Stay classy.Let's keep this short and sweet, as I'm scurrying off to Las Vegas this morning to accept a CLIO Award. (No, check that, they're whispering in my ear that my schedule actually calls for an Observer staff meeting in Uptown.) Guess the a ... More >>
Right is wrong and left is ... right?
Seems to be. It's not exactly a bass-ackward revolution, but left-handers are doing okay for themselves in sports these days.
Or are they?
The idea struck me last week when I saw highlights of college quarterbacks Josh Heupel and Matt Leinart winning BCS Nation ... More >>
