Scattershooting … while wondering whatever happened to this guy.

The Lakers might be dumb enough to trade Kobe Bryant. But, sorry, Mavs fans, they aren’t stupid enough to deal him to a Western Conference team ...

If the VIP newsletter scam dug the hole, Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione nailed shut his coffin last week against Tech. Famous last words (in, of course, Fran’s wimpy, squeaky voice): “We’re just gonna keep on doing what we do, doing what we’ve been doing.” At the time -- entering the halftime locker room -- A&M trailed 21-7. True to his word, the Aggies kept on keeping on and lost, 35-7. R.C., you busy? ...

Shut up and play: If you really think you coulda made that catch or run through that hole, the Dallas Desperados are having an open tryout Saturday at Texas Stadium ...

Trust me on this. Sooner rather than later Dallas Cowboys receiver Patrick Crayton will try a reverse pass ...

Your weekly -- and, who are we kidding, it could be daily -- Emmitt Smith gaffe comes from last Monday night, when he fumbled an attempted explanation of the Atlanta Falcons’ current demise: “It's going to be a long fall. A quick fall. Right now they are on they way down, but they are still going to fall hard.” Well said ...

Washington Redskins receiver Brandon Lloyd thinks Troy Aikman is gay. He isn’t now. Never was. The end. Some day buy me a beer and ask me about hanging out with ol’ No. 8 and the local hotties at the Pro Bowl in Honolulu. If that’s being gay, I wanna be happy too ...

On Reebok’s list of top-selling jerseys, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is currently No. 10, one spot behind Terrell Owens. No. 1? San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson ...

Raw carrots? Dee-lish. Steamed carrots? The worst. In totally unrelated news, the National Lacrosse League canceled its 2008 season due to labor impasse. Carrot cake sucks as well ...

Baylor offensive line coach Eric Schnupp got ticketed for peeing on the bar at Scruffy Murphy’s. Who hasn’t? ...

A sign the Dallas Cowboys are starting to flex a little more muscle in their relationship with flagship station KTCK-AM (1310, The Ticket): Nate Newton, long a regular contributor on ESPN-103.3 FM, has also become a part-time voice on a weeknight Cowboys show on The Ticket. There's no way Ticket bosses like that ...

If you hate me in print and online, you’ll loathe me on the air. Tune in to Live 105.3 FM and the Dan and Tasos show Saturday night at 10 and I’ll do my best to justify your abhorrence. Look it up. --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.
