GarbageTalk: With SXSW Wrapped Up And Most People Focusing on College Basketball, Let’s Talk Texas, Football And Cheerleaders, ‘Cause Why Not

First, y’all, I apologize for the long layoff … sometimes work and life just get in the way.  One day I’ll write a book.  Anyway, last week concluded this year’s SXSW event.  Give it up to Spoon, the 2015 Grulke Prize winner for Career Act!  One day I’ll make it to Houston for this event, even if my buddy, who

GarbageTalk: Is Tom Benson an Imbecile, Is He Insane Or Is He Mad?

Benson’s step-daughter (Rita), and Benson’s grand-kids (Renee and Ryan) believe he is one of the three.  How do I know?  Let me explain. As you may know, and as I reported here, Tom Benson’s step-child and her children requested that a court in New Orleans order that Tom Benson undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is competent to

GarbageTalk: The Three Musketeers, Bobby, Rodge and Jerry, Celebrate A W

On exiting the stadium, I heard Pete Carrol mumbling to himself. At first, I couldn’t make it out, but eventually, he got loud enough for me to hear. He was saying: “would’a, could’a, should’a.” Yep. That about sums up the last Seattle play of the Super Bowl. But enough talk bout the losers. I’m sure all you want to talk

GarbageTalk: The 2015 Super Bowl Advertisements Will Be A Disaster; Though It Will Not Be Attributable To Kimye

Folks – nothing new to report today on either team’s secret plan to win the Super Bowl, but I would like to discuss this year’s Super Bowl ads, which will collectively be terrible. Not because any one of them is inherently bad, except of course the Budweiser dog commercial which totally misses its target population (more on that tomorrow), but

GarbageTalk: Roger Goodell’s Unofficial Discussion With Robert Kraft On The Patriots’ and Seahawks’ Respective Secret Plans To Win

On Monday, Robert Kraft held a press conference during which he chastised Roger Goodell and others for jumping to conclusions, and demanding an apology from Goodell himself if and when the NFL investigation into Deflategate exonerates the Patriots. A day later, Goodell and Kraft met face to face during Media day. Off the record, here is their exchange: Goodell: Bobby,

GarbageTalk: The Seahawk’s Respond To The Patriot’s Secret Baby Oil Plan

Yesterday, the world learned that the Patriots do in fact have a secret underhanded plan to win the Superbowl. That plan, of coating their running back in baby oil, was exposed first by yours truly. Now, as a much liked member of the NFL press core, I am fortunate to have contacts at every level of every organization. And that

GarbageTalk: The Patriot’s Strategy To Beat The Seahawks Is Baby Oil

Deflategate in this football fan’s eyes was pure comedy. Basically we heard Belichick and Brady bob and weave through reporter questions giving political-sounding answers akin to those given by Bill Clinton when answering questions about Monica Lewinsky … “I’ve never had sexual relations with that woman.” Um, OK Bill. Define “sexual relations” for me. Anyway, with Deflategate winding down, the
