    The Ticket Served Fried Chicken at a Southern Dallas Barbershop for Juneteenth

    First of all, let's dispense with a very basic fact: everyone loves fried chicken. With the possible exception of vegetarians -- who, let's be honest, are just lying to themselves -- and some remote, yet-to-be-discovered hen worshipers in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, the fact that an individua ...

    Sad Sports Sunday For Your Good Ol' Red, White and Boo

    ​Woke up rooting for America Sunday morning. Phil Mickelson made a charge, Dustin Johnson was in the hunt and it looked like a U.S. golfer would steal the Claret Jug at the British Open. I was rooting for America after lunch, too. Abby Wambach scored late and it looked like the U.S. would ... More >>

    The World's Top 10 Left-Handed Athletes

    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 Nationa ... More >>

    Two Local Kids Make the Cartoon Network By Actually Getting Off the Couch

    When Tiger Woods was 4 years old, so the story goes, his dad would drop him off at a golf course at 9 a.m. on a Saturday and pick him up at 5 p.m., “pockets bulging with money he had won from disbelievers 10 and 20 years older.” I would have a hard time believing that story if it didn’t concer ...
