Whitt's End: 12.3.10

*"At Citibank we will meet accidentally. We'll start to talk when she borrows my pen." Genius.

*The Dallas girl - Ann Ward - that this week won America's Top Model ain't hot. Too skinny. And other things.

*I know we're no soccer power, but the U.S. lost the bidding for the 2022 World Cup to ... Qatar. Nobody can pronounce that, much less point to it on a map. I think it's over there, littered with lavish stadiums surrounded by moats of oil.

*Penn State head coach Joe Paterno next year will have held the same position at the same company for 46 consecutive years. Having spent 18 years at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and already another six at the Observer, I find that unfathomably remarkable.

*Speaking of longevity, don't look now but 105.3 The Fan will turn 2 next Wednesday. How are all those "they'll switch formats by (fill in the blank)" predictions coming along?

*This weekend? Think I'll do some writing, then maybe some talking. Sunday night I'll be on the 105.3 The Fan Cowboys-Colts post-game. Please find a way to not be a stranger.
