I've never been to a coffee shop with an ethos before. Mostly I just want a cup of coffee that doesn't suck, some wifi and a place to plug in my laptop adapter. Bonus points for decent ergonomics so I can put in an extra long hyper-caffeinated work session without blowing out my elbows or straining ... More >>
In tiny Knox City, a sick boy and his robot sidekick keep beating the odds.
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Jason Terry's voice is still hoarse from all the partying and cigars, but yet we're already peeking at 2012. Problem: The Mavs aren't a team built for the future, but rather the here-'n-now ... More >>
Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs shed labels and the Miami Heat on the way to their first NBA championship.

Dallas, it would seem, has a new America's Team this morning, and so we'll get to the "news" in a moment. First, though, two Association videos -- sneak peeks at the "mini-movie" to come later this afternoon. On this side, Dirk Nowtizki, who "slew the fire-breathing demon of unfulfilled expectations ...

As I watched Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki try to keep an eye and arm on their new NBA Finals and NBA Finals MVP trophies, all the while swigging from a bottle of bubbly as big as a small pony, it struck me just how perfect this night was. The Mavericks -- those soft lil' Mav-wrecks -- were he ... More >>
Mark Cuban was fuming. His team had just blown a 23-point lead in a Game 4 loss to Portland in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Mavericks were two losses from another early-round exit, the likely firing of head coach Rick Carlisle and yet another in a seemingly endless re-shuffling of ... More >>
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *In 31 years of basketball, the Dallas Mavericks have won a combined (regular season and playoffs) 1,349 games.

Mavericks revenge is a dish best served with Heat.
Sorry to pee on your Memorial Day barbecue, but you gotta get mad one more time before we can get even. Revenge, after all, is best served ... in South Beach. I know only Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry remain for the Mavericks and Udonis Haslem and Dwyane Wade remain on the Heat from the 2006 ... More >>
We're rooting for the Chicago Bulls in tonight's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Right? I know, in the regular season the Mavs were 2-0 against the Miami Heat and 0-2 against the Bulls. But the longer the series goes -- it's currently 3-1 Miami -- the more rest the Mavs will ge ... More >>
Miami Thrice, enjoy your demise.Dwyane Wade in specific. And the Miami Heat in general. Take this lightly if you wish, but consider the career/personal plunges of my previous targets: *Terrell Owens (cut by the Cowboys, irrelevant as Buffalo Bill). *Tiger Woods (lost his wife, reputat ... More >>
"Pretty woman, walkin' down the street, pretty woman the kind I like to meet, pretty woman. I don't believe you. You're not the truth. No one could look as good as you...Mercy!" If rock 'n roll pioneer Roy Orbison were alive today, he might take great pleasure in knowing t ... More >>
The Cowboys won't be in Miami for Super Bowl XLIV February 7, but Dallas will be represented all over South Beach in the form of the latest and greatest in safe, sassy transportation - VAULT. I saw this thing - it's like a giant combo limousine/Hummer/armored truck - pull up to a D ... More >>
"Do you want to go to this restaurant opening?" I asked my boyfriend as we were heating up leftovers. Checking the temperature of his canned soup, he replied, "Can't. I'm broke." To which I informed him, "It's free, and it's sponsored by champagne and vodka." Apparently, I didn't even have t ... More >>

Barry Whistler pays tribute to a fallen artist
Mysterious, sensual, entertaining? Nah, not this geisha.
On Saturday, Raymond Hammell was mentioned in The Dallas Morning News, just not by name. He was not dead even a day, but already he was a statistic: a 56-year-old man "stabbed multiple times Friday evening in a skywalk in the 2000 block of Bryan Street. He later died at Baylor University Medical Cen ... More >>
Look, we all know our Dallas Mavericks are gonna win the NBA Finals. But that doesn't mean the series is over just yet. The Mavs are up 2-0 heading into tonight's Game 3, where the Miami Heat will almost certainly ride desperation to a big early lead. They call it human nature, and the hungry man be ... More >>
