    Hello everybody, from The Ballpark With the New Name. We're here at Rangers Opening Day, and will be documenting the thrills, the spills, and the silliness.

    2011 Cowboys Camp Day 2: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. Was it just me and Fox 4's Mike Doocy, or was owner Jerry Jones choking up a bit yesterday when talking about the voyage that was lockout negotiations? "We took the boat out into a perfect storm and got the boat back home." The older he gets, the more sentimental and emotional Jerry get ... More >>

    2010 ALCS Game 3 - Rangers 8, Yankees 0: My Top Observer-ations

    About 90 minutes after this pic, Josh Hamilton went deep to start a Rangers' romp in The Bronx​10. How dominant was Cliff Lee tonight? I sat in the right-field seats of Yankee Stadium in the middle innings and I swear fans were wildly cheering foul balls managed by Nick Swisher. Any contact ... More >>

    Mike Modano is Coming Back?

    After another fascinating True Blood last night, I caught Mike Modano on Fox 4's Sports Sunday with Mike Doocy. Anyone else see this? I could've sworn Modano - who was in studio - said he is strongly leaning toward coming back and playing another season for the Dallas Stars. Didn't jot down t ... More >>

    Fantasy Golf is, Apparently, Child's Play

    ​Flipping through my Avid Golfer magazine this week I came across the most interesting of tournaments. A media tournament. A fantasy media tournament. Who knew? Seems the boys over at Avid couldn't herd all us cats into actually playing a tournament, so they produced a speculative tournament ... More >>

    Who's the Most Trusted Man in Dallas/Fort Worth? On TV? When it Comes to Sports?

    Ah, the bad ol' days.​When Walter Cronkite punted the bucket recently, the title of "Most Trusted Man in America" fell to - believe it or not - Jon Stewart. While this news made me, a Daily Show devotee, click my heels, it also got me to thinking: Who's the Most Trusted Sportscaster in ... More >>

    I Hope You're Sitting Down: Nita Wiggins Out at Fox 4.

    Maybe I haven't been paying attention or maybe, truth be told, I just didn't miss her enough to notice. Whatever, I thought I had a mini-scoop this afternoon when I found out that Fox 4 had severed ties with long-time sports reporter Nita Wiggins. That is, until I read it here. From, duh, like ...

    Hard Knocks? Eh.

    I expected a little more from the HBO crew. You? The boys at Deadspin have condensed last night’s first episode of Hard Knocks into four minutes. I, however, can name that tune in 40 words: T.O. on the beach. Witten changing diapers. Pacman dumps water on Felix Jones. Jason ... More >>

    It’s Okay, Relax, Nothing to See – or Feel – Here

    How 'bout that? A real California Quake! Thanks for not a single one of you asking, but I’m okay. Myself and the Cowboys somehow survived the 5.4 magnitude earthquake that rumbled through southern California at 11:42 this morning. The epicenter is Chino Hills, which is east of downtown Los ...

    TV Redux: Hammer Time

    The guy on the right will be the Father's Day guest on Doocy. The guy on the left doesn't give a damn. Apparently, Greg Williams’ recent TV appearance wasn’t as bad as some of you/us thought. At least not according to Fox 4 sports anchorman Mike Doocy and his perfect hair, who has invite ... More >>

    Your Weekend Forecast: T.O., Greggo and Lame-O

    Where's Greggo? Would you believe sitting beside Mike Doocy come Sunday night? If you think Terrell Owens was just sooo believable and charming in his sit-com acting debut. If you can’t wait to see Greg Williams again. If you want proof why I became a writer instead of a TV talking head. A ... More >>

    Mike Rhyner, left, returns to host "The Hardline" with Greg Williams today. But Greggo all by his lonesome? Not bad, buddy. Not bad at all. Of my experience yesterday co-hosting "The Hardline" on KTCK-AM (1310, The Ticket) with the mighty Greg Williams, let me say this: Radio is hard. Very, very har ... More >>
