Because surely Letterman will ask the obvious question, right: "How did you girls choke away a World Cup?" Of c ... More >>

A little housekeeping first, yes? We were relieved from Top Chef All Stars blogging duties during the holidays, but not relieved by the elimination that occurred: Spike, cute and surly Spike, was sent packing after Jamie bailed on competing once again and left him to flounder in the last episode, ...

Eventually, the boos turned to cheers. Those of you expecting a “Top 10 Ugliest Wins in Cowboys’ History”, sorry to disappoint. But I like your thinking. Marion Barber ran hard. The defense – led by Zach Thomas and Bradie James – played inspired. The offensive line was improved. Ni ... More >>
What’s the only thing less reliable than my picks? Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense. For a couple years now some smartass has been referring to Dallas’ unit as “Dumbsday.” Last week in coughing up 34 points to the Rams it was abysmal. And this week, despite Phillips taking over the defensive ... More >>
Robert already hipped Unfair Park readers to the South Dallas Pop documentary airing tomorrow night on KERA, but, hell, we'll do it, too.

Climbing the slippery slope to daytime fame
Lia, at left, gets a farewell drowning from Casey Thompson on Top Chef. Last week, Shinsei's Casey Thompson very easily could have gotten the pointy boot from Bravo's Top Chef for her lousy tuna tartar -- should have too, for putting her two at-risk partners on the judge's grill.

Hello, her name is Natasha, and she loves you. Hi, it's me, your friendly TiVo shark, fresh from the waters of the Season Eight premiere of America's Next Top Model.

A truly universal remote leads to Sandler's best movie in years
Do you really need a cutline here? When I was a kid and the Cowboys or Mavericks or even Rangers would lose so much as a home game, I didn't want to know about it the next day.
