Okay, let’s see what I missed here on the homefront while vacationing in Canada and “working” in California. Hmm …

*Rough week for our beloved Mark Cuban. First, Ron Artest gets traded to the Rockets, dropping his Mavericks to fourth-best in their own damn division. Then he lost a cool $6 million to arch nemesis Don Nelson. And perhaps worst of all, on Thursday he turned the big five-oh.

*You sure this is Aug. 1 and not April 1? How else can you explain Quincy Carter getting a tryout with the Miami Dolphins? The same Dolphins, mind you, who are under the dictatorship of Bill Parcells, who oversaw Quincy’s pot-related release back in 2004. We are talking about the same Quincy Carter, right?

*If you were surprised R.A. Dickey was still chunking knucklers in the majors, you haven’t been paying attention. But if you’re surprised he’s doing it effectively, you're like the Rangers.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
