For us, Super Bowl week essentially wraps up today. I have one more appearance Saturday at Capitol Bar on Main from 4-6 p.m. with our good friend Quintin Demps ($10 cover charge). We have moved on to the party phase of the week. Considering how much whiskey I consumed at the Big Texas Party last night, it’s a minor miracle this is being written with any coherence whatsoever. I was sweating whiskey on my run this morning. Yes, it was that kind of night.
Don’t forget we gave you a guide to all the best bars/restaurants, etc. in downtown/midtown/eado.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night. It was an absolute blast. The party itself was over the top. Great food, great alcohol, great people.
So to answer a couple questions…yes, you can get into radio row if you have an NFL Experience ticket. You simply go to the Bridgestone Fan Gallery. We are out at 6 tonight (yes, another party to attend) so please come by before then.
Also, I will post picks for tonight’s races later this morning. Let’s get to the sports:
Not so good: Stop us if you have heard this one before: The Rockets blew a big lead and lost to the Atlanta Hawks last night. They have been a pretty mediocre team over the last month. Hard to say what is different from the winning streak other than they just are not playing very well. Maybe teams have adjusted.
A really big shame bell: The Art Briles apologists should quietly leave the planet. Seriously. You should be ashamed of yourselves. This is a terrible human being you are defending. If you did not see the text messages he sent that proved he covered up rape, well, there is your link. I have to admit, it was hard to believe all of this was true. But there can be no doubt now. He should never be allowed to be around students again. Never. Frankly he should be in jail. This is sick, sick stuff.
Hey Texans…Tony Romo apparently has the Texans on his wish list. If he will take a lesser deal, they would be stupid not to try to pick him up (once the Cowboys cut him, of course. His current contract is untradeable). He would be an instant upgrade over everything on the roster.
Tiger, Tiger, burning, right?: It is so sad that the media wants Tiger Woods to succeed. He equals ratings and web hits. They refuse to admit he is done. Forget winning majors, this guy might never win another tournament. And yet the golf world tries to say his return was not so bad. Give it up guys. I get it. No one cares about your sport unless Tiger is good. He isn’t. It’s over. Admit it and move on.
And finally, Florida, of course: A man shot a cat because it “looked like it owned the place.” I would feel bad for the owner but he has EIGHT more to cuddle with.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Like you were walking on a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and
You probably think this song is about you.”
— Carly Simon, You’re so Vain. (And yes, I do think the song was about me. And I prefer this version from Faster Pussycat…)
