    Whitt's End: 8.12.11

    ​Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Just stop it with the calls for Stephen McGee to get more playing time, or even be elevated to No. 2. Watch the game. He's horrible. He can overcome sloppy footwork, inaccuracy and a lack ... More >>

    ​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 >>

    No-Hitter = No Biggy

    ​I always TiVo the Texas Rangers. But last night when I got home my roommate already had the game on and when I got home I heard TV voice Josh Lewin exclaim:    "Hit record on your DVRs, you're about to witness history!" Whoa, I exclaimed back, the possibilities running through my m ... More >>

    Listomania: 10 Bands That Suck Outdoors

    ​Let's start this off right: We're absolutely not saying these bands suck. We're saying they suck in the heat and humidity of an overpacked, porta-potty using festival. And, with ACL approaching fast and other festivals that people like coming up real soon, there's a lot of choices in that butt-sw ... More >>

    Hairy Stuff: Local Girl Vying to Be America's Next Top Model Is the Pits

    ​Cleared out the TiVo last night after watching American Idol for DC9 and realized I just haven't been watching enough of the CW of late. I had totally missed that the 14th cycle of America's Next Top Model was set to premiere. And that, Friends, is unheard of in my reality-recapping world. So ... ... More >>

    Mayor Tom and His Tiny Scissors

    An Ode to Jesse Holley

    Video of the Week: Last Go For Mo?

    I know other columnists disagree, but I think this is it. Tonight's the final game in the Stars-studded hockey career of Mike Modano. Horrible season. Getting called out. A team-worst minus-14. Only one goal in his last 34 games. Turning 39 in June. Her waiting at home. Just a gut feeling. It's not& ... More >>

    Playoff Hockey in Dallas! Sorta.

    Nothing like playoff hockey in North Texas in the spring. Long, spirited series. Mysterious injuries. Clutch goaltending. Late nights melting into early mornings watching multiple-overtime classics. And, of course, driving to North Richland Hills. Because if you want post-season ice hockey this year ... More >>

    "Unprecedented Access": Blockbuster Adds TiVo Delivery to List of Latest, Greatest Ideas

Staged racks on America's Funniest Videos: Insulting. Raw, real racks: Priceless. The Mavs are yucking it up on the bench, just seconds from survivin ... More >>

    Girl Drink Drunk: At Home With an Irish Maiden

    Tonight: Skip The Debate And Catch Jonezetta At The Loft

    That first McCain/Obama debate was pretty much a snoozefest of the highest order. The second go around tonight should offer a bit more interest, seeing that’s it has a town hall format. In any case, you can always TiVo the debate and head out to The Loft tonight and catch Jonezetta. Hailing from ... More >>
