I’ll take Potpurri for $200, Alex

A brief update covering the weekend’s activites: – Melinda and I went to the State Fair of Texas on Friday and enjoyed the sights and great weather. We did enjoy the required Fletcher’s corny dogs, but missed out on sampling any of this year’s fried delicacies. However, I was tempted to try the Fried PBJ …

A week 2 weeks in L.A.

I’ve been in L.A. for the last week studying improv at The Second City and I’ll be here another week taking yet another class and filming a short film. I really love improv because it’s not about being big and over the top funny, but about paying attention and letting the audience lead the scene. …

Yeah, I saw it

I was originally going to title this post “David Stern Can’t Fine Me”, but I’ve had time to settle down and reflect on the Mavericks first ever NBA Finals appearance. As much as Dallasites will complain that Stern and the refs conspired against the Mavs (that call at the end of game 5 was horrible), …

Mavs up 2-0. Me not so much.

It’s 3:20 a.m. Vegas time and we just got in from a very long day that included Arena Bowl 20, the Mavs domination of the Heat in game 2, a Cirque de Soliel show at The Mirage and some post-show sightseeing. Do the math, and my body thinks it’s 5:20. I’m in for another long …

Congrats Tom and Kelly

Melinda and I were in Austin the end of last week for her brother Tom’s wedding. Here’s a pic of Melinda and Tom from the end of the evening just before Tom and his bride, Kelly, took off for their honeymoon in Bora Bora. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was top notch. It …

Who is this?

Here’s the deal, we were at Petsmart in Frisco three weekends ago to check out the available dogs from the Frisco Humane Society to see if we could possibly find a friend for Lola. We ended up fostering a puppy for 4 days, and now we’re about to become a 2 dog household. His name …

Ooh-LA-LA

Melinda and I were in L.A. this past weekend for a friend’s 50th birthday party in Santa Monica on Saturday. I can now say I’ve been to a “L.A. Party” as there were celebs present. It was good to see Page, since he had no idea we were coming, and was genuinely shocked and happy …

Mavs Crown Kings

I had a chance to see the Mavs blowout the Kings, 127-101 tonight with my friend Cratin. The game was close in the opening minutes, but the Mavs got rolling and were up 22 at the half, leading by as much as 30 in the 4th. Thanks to Bryan Stout for the great seats (I …

Play Ball!

Thanks again to Roxy, I spent Friday night in the pressbox of Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco catching the Texas Rangers spring training exhibition win over the Florida Marlins 4-1. Here’s a picture from the cramped play-by-play booth of Roxy and his broadcast partner, Dave Van Horne. In what was a very uneventful game, the …

Go Bears

I had the good fortune of attending the NCAA Men’s Tournament Regionals here in Dallas Friday night thanks to my good friend Roxy Bernstein who is the radio play-by-play voice for the #7 seeded University of California men’s basketball team (that’s him at his courtside broadcast position under the big red arrow). After leading 29-25 …

The new one…

So we’re out to lunch with my sister today and Melinda decides to run down the way to pick some stuff up for the Oscar party tomorrow night and I get a text message that says “don’t come down here if you don’t want to see dogs.” Apparently the Frisco Humane Society was at PetSmart …

All Sports Weekend

I’m a big sports nut, and this weekend was fun for me. Friday, Melinda and I went to see the “Battle of the Undefeateds” as the 3-0 Dallas Desperados battled the 3-0 Austin Wranglers in a hard fought loss. We bought season tickets after going to the first game against Kansas City and really feel …

U2. ONE. 8.

We just got back from a weekend trip to Washington D.C. to see Bono give a speech entitled “How to live a purpose filled life”. Melinda got the tickets through an association she is a member of and she thought it would be a cool birthday trip. — and it was. The speech focused on …
