Dallas’ Only Daily Breaks Ground with a, um, Ground-Breaking Idea?

Belo at its best.

Dallas’ Only Daily sports columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor (wearing a white lab coat, v-neck sweater, bow tie, scruffy, proletarian mustache and Bluetooth earpiece, peculiarly speaking with a robust Irish accent): Ya know what I’ve been thinking?

Dallas’ Only Daily sports columnist Tim Cowlishaw (wearing a white lab coat, v-neck sweater, bow tie and waxy, handle-bar mustache, peculiarly speaking with a robust Irish accent): What’s that?

JJT: We should start our own sports blogs!

TC: Our own sports blogs?! Brilliant!

TC: What in the devil is a sports blog?

JJT: Well, we’re columnists who write a couple times a week. But with a blog, we can write every day.

TC: Writing every day?! Brilliant!

JJT: Yes, imagine a place where we can opine on everything, post heady links and generally dump our brain into cyberspace?

TC: My God, man. How’d you ever devise such a grand scheme?

JJT: Funniest thing. The idea just magically arrived.

(Toasting ink-drenched quills)

TC: Brilliant!

JJT: Brilliant! -- Richie Whitt
