And will gabachos ever pick crops like Mexicans?
Listen, we know most of you aren't paying attention to the NBA finals like you were last year, but for those of who are (some out of Heat Hate, some out of love for the game), we've been treated to some rather abysmal NBA promos featuring Linkin Park's shitty, shitty music. This is nothing new, as ... More >>
It just wouldn't be the same if Jordan had five rings and a show pony.Tough to tell how serious Mark Cuban is about forgoing championship rings and getting something else to commemorate the franchise's first title. But he seems pretty committed to changing it up. "Rings are old school," Cuba ... More >>
He had lotsa laughs ... at the expense of the MavericksWhen the NBA All-Star Game came to Dallas in February 2010 I got to hop in a Hummer limo. Driven by a big guy. Who had no use for road rules, or police barriers. As he ran over a bunch of traffic cones and headed toward a security ... More >>
Stick with movies, ShaqIt's hard not to love Shaq. He's managed to create a superstar persona out of being a lovable oaf. Oh, and there's that whole basketball thing. He's one of the greatest players of all time, if only because of his size. But, yesterday, the Big Diesel finally went and announc ... More >>
Back in April we ran that Dirk Nowitzki film festival alluded to in the headline. Cute stuff, especially Dirk as The Dude. Tonight at the AAC, when Your Dallas Mavericks take on the Shaq-less Boston Celtics, debuts another addition to the filmography starring Dirk as Steve Martin as The Jerk. Sneak ... More >>
Your Dallas Mavericks are pondering an O'Neal, but not that one. Team source told me last night that the Mavs acquiring former Superman center Shaquille O'Neal is "a long longshot," but that Miami Heat center Jermaine O'Neal is a real possibility. Honestly, neither name gets me too ... More >>
Through the years, I've attempted to defend Dallas Mavericks' star Dirk Nowitzki. Praised him in columns. Put him atop underrated lists. The guy has done everything except win a championship. Points. MVPs. Guts. You name it. Now he's gone an unprecedented step further. Name me another s ... More >>
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 >>
Trade proposal: Mavs Man and tonight's 24th pick for these two prospects?Like the Dallas Cowboys did a couple months ago, the Dallas Mavericks have made the decision to fortify their roster via quantity, not quality. But in an NBA Draft that features Blake Griffin, Hasheem Thabeet, James ... More >>
Imagine the mustaches and pointy ears Cristal Taylor will draw on these chicks in prison.Not real sure about The Dirty. Who is this "Nik"? What is a "Shim"? Isn't it a little way late to boast yourself as "the world's first ever reality blogger"? Whatever. The site has some interesting p ... More >>
I'd tweet this item, but ... no. Instead, this trio of Twitter-related items in a single post. As in: This morning, the Chicago Tribune becomes the latest in a series of stories to reference Addison-based TweetCongress, which, go figure, follows the tweets of those in Congress -- about 110 politicia ...

Okay gang, I'm swamped up to here this week working on a Dallas Observer cover story for later this month. So I don't have the luxury of pouring economically dripping my usual time and/or effort into tracking down whispers. That said, I'd also never prevent a good rumor from potentially bl ... More >>
Okay, let's try something different. Something titillating. Since Observer staff writers Merritt Martin and Megan Feldman almost never get in a cat fight that spills over into the mud-wrestling pit, they instead want to entertain us visually-stimulated, testosterone-saturated dorks with their ...
