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

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.
