    D is for Dick: Capriotti's Gave Mag Free Publicity and Got Threatened with Legal Action

    Back in late February, SideDish, the food blog over at D, carried the news that a sandwich shop called Capriotti's was going to revamp an old gas station downtown and subsequently expand to 50 other locations around DFW. "Has anybody eaten here before? Is it any good?" the post asked. We had, and ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers: Looking Back at a Great Series ... and a Horrible Prediction

    ​Never been happier to be wrong. And I don't care that I wasn't alone -- I admit I was wrong. I'm stunned by the Mavs sweeping the Lakers, punctuated by Sunday's 122-86 epic shellacking. Matter of fact, I'm more surprised by this outcome than the Navy SEALs sweeping Osama. I gave currency to&n ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers Game 2 Preview From the Puerto Rican Point Guard and the Old Coach

    ​I asked Mavericks backup point guard J.J. Barea what he was thinking as the ball left Kobe Bryant's hand on the potential game-winning 3-pointer in Monday's Game 1 at Staples Center. "I wasn't thinking," Barea said. "I was praying." Despite playing 44 minutes of superb basketball -- the ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers Preview: Lakers in 5

    Some of us have waited 23 years to "Beat L.A.!" Sorry, I don't see it happening in 2011 either. When the Lakers and Mavs begin their best-of-seven Western Conference Semifinal series tonight at 9:30 in Staples Center, there is an undeniable fact that overrides any and all X's and O's: The two ...

    Caron Butler's Injury Doesn't End the Mavs' Season, But it Alters Expectations

    ​When Tony Romo broke his collar bone on October 25, the Dallas Cowboys' season was kaput. When Caron Butler tore a tendon in his knee on January 1, it may not have ended the Dallas Mavericks' season but certainly the bar has been lowered. What ended as such a promising 2010 ha ... More >>
