So Miami has resorted to name-calling?

Looks like it’s going to be a Miami/Dallas NBA Championship series, and the good folks on the right bank are already talking smack. (Even though technically, they haven’t earned the right yet, since they are still playing Chicago).

Here is the link to the “publication.” 

And here is the first paragraph to the story:

The Dallas Mavericks earned a spot in the NBA Finals Wednesday night with their 100-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, which means once the Heat finally put the Chicago Bulls out of their misery tonight, all that stands between Miami and a national title is a shaggy, horse-toothed German and his band of merry pranksters.

Wow.

So here were some comments to that story by some Texans:

1) We don’t shoot our tourists.

2) Mojitos are terrible, margaritas are divine.

3) Miami is the only place that has an ocean and no waves.

4) Dallas doesn’t get flattened by hurricanes every few years.

5) Our quarterbacks don’t shave their legs and wear pantyhose.

So, this looks like it’s going to be an interesting series, in more ways than one.

Wake Up Call: Of course Jerry is invited to the wedding

In the biggest publicity stunt since Barnum and Bailey’s Circus came to town, Jerry Jones actually went on ESPN to tell us mere mortal, poor people that he has “special permission” to attend Tony Romo’s wedding this Saturday in Dallas. Isn’t that special?

“I’ve gotten special permission,” Jones said. “But more than anything, [I got
the] right ticket from him and his fianceé — Romo’s wife-to-be. [It’s] one of
prettiest invitations I’ve ever seen.

Oh please Jerry. Do me a favor and get back to the negotiating table and break this impasse with the NFL Players Union, and lets play some football ok?

Because of the lockout, NFL teams are not allowed to speak with players or agents. However, there have been some charity events where players and coaches have crossed paths.

Technically, Jones doesn’t need special permission from the league to go to Romo’s wedding. Personal events and situations where team officials would interact with a player — such as weddings, funerals, serious illnesses or
medical emergencies — don’t need to be cleared through the league office.

Romo has sent out wedding invitations to all of his teammates and most, if not all, are expected to attend. Romo is marrying former television reporter Candice Crawford.

“It’s going to be a fun day,” Romo said earlier this week. “When you have the right one, you just know.”

Boy Howdy, we are happy now.
