Also Closed; Colemans mind.

Because we talked sports we most certainly cant have tastes in food or be knowledgable about public affairs or city musings.  Coleman you are one stereotyping son of bitch, I hope for all the things youve said to Davy that when you have a kid he as aspergers, and that when you die, its from alzheimers.  Now go get lost in a killer bee hive shithead

Across the street from the late El Fuego, Soulman's BBQ is about to open another outpost of mehtastic que in the old Purdy's location.

Other places about to close: Tropicana Field, Yankee Stadium, BankOne Ballpark (Phoenix?).

If y'all want a nice drive in the country and some spirited conversation, c'mon out to Cresson and I'll buy the first round.  I'll be there about 1:30pm and will begin liveblogging on Unfair Park shortly thereafter.

(Davy, if'n you can play sick, c'mon brother.)

Sucks about Fuego. I loved going in on Saturday mornings for the huevos rancheros with chorizo. Been wondering what was going ot happen at the old Purdy's.

Not to my knowledge.  There has been a complete news blackout for over a month from the chatty money guy.  I believe all is not well in partnership land.

I decided to follow you on twitter, you know so we can continue this there - assuming you're not too big of a pussy. God knows this blog doesn't need to be cluttered up by a typical sports moron and whatever it is you are.

Coleman
Coleman

typical sports moron, insisting he's as smart as anyone else while shitting up unrelated blogs with his garbage. Get over it and go back to watching a bunch of grown men play with balls, dirtbag.

*edit* and stop mentioning me on twitter. you're embarrassing yourself.

Davy Crockett

How am I thin skinned? Because I have a nephew with Asperger? No, that's why it's incredibly offensive. If you really think I'm stupid, we should compare SATs or whatever would prove to an ultra-cool hipster like yourself that I'm actually far from it.

Coleman
Coleman

Again, I say...thin-skinned and stupid is no way to go through life, bud.

Davy Crockett

And what you're saying is that you think this is *your* blog and only people *you* approve of can comment here. Since I'm not on your approved list, you'll continue to claim a person you have never met has Asperger? I can be civil, Coleman/Monstruss (or whatever name you think is hipster-cool), but it's entirely up to you. I'm not going to let a prick like you dictate what I say on a blog.

Coleman
Coleman

So what you're saying, Davy Crockett, is that you're pretty committed to acting like an Asperger-ravaged adult baby without a hugbox. great.

Davy Crockett
Davy Crockett

So basically, you're pissed that we comment here and you feel that it's appropriate to insinuate that we have diminished mental capacities?  Also, if you paid any attention to what went on in the Sportatorium (I know you didn't), you'd know we gave RW hell for the frosted tipped hair plugs. And because it pisses you off so much, this is where I'll continue to comment even after RW gets his other blog up and running. Suck on that, Coleman.

Coleman
Coleman

Oh no someone said something that you thought was offensive! But it's ok for you and your suburbanite douchebag buddies to shit up every other blog on Dallas Observer because your balding with frosted tips messiah got his crappy writing gig taken away. Is that about the gist of things? I just hope that you and your adult baby friends can find an appropriate outlet for all of your crappy dick jokes and less-than-subtle homoerotic sports fascination.

Davy Crockett

I actually leave the page up and I see the new comments as the come in, Mr. Smarty Pants. And I'll use frat boy vocabulary before saying something offensive like us having Asperger. That's my issue with you right now - the Asperger comment. I'm looking past the fact you look like queen douche of Dallas.

Coleman
Coleman

your quick responses and frat boy vocabulary say otherwise, bud. Isn't there some hugbox sports forum that you idiots could flood?

Davy Crockett
Davy Crockett

I'm neither. While you're at it, quit being a little bitch, bitch.
