Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

FRIDAY: Check your calendars, triskadecaphobians. Don’t walk under ladders. Don’t screw with masked dudes named Jason. And, whatever you do, don’t work around cranes.

SATURDAY: Still six weeks until the Cowboys depart for Oxnard, Calif., but that isn’t stopping Terrell Owens and Marcus Spears from throwing a “Back to Camp” bash at the Palladium Ballroom. In light of this week’s news, I think it’d be funny if you went up to T.O. and asked him to pee in a cup. Dare ya.

SUNDAY: For you nostalgic Ticket P1s, the artist formerly known as “He Who Must Not Be Named” caps Dad’s Day with an appearance with Fox 4’s Mike Doocy on Sports Sunday at 10 p.m. The night before, former ticker guy-turned-Mavs’ voice Mark Followill will try to follow my huge (re: embarassingly tiny) footsteps as the guest analyst on Channel 21’s Frisco RoughRiders broadcast. And, just in case my son happens to log on, here are a couple gift ideas. -- 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.
