Whitt's End: 1.14.11

Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:

*Jerry Jones is desperate to break the Super Bowl attendance record, set at the Rose Bowl back in 1980. To do so, he needs to pack 104,000 into Cowboys Stadium. Or around it? He wants to sell ticket to fans who would clear security but only watch on the large video screens outside on Cowboys Stadium's plazas. Looks like the NFL is going to agree to count those fans in the attendance. Lame? For the record, the NBA All-Star Game drew 108,713 last February.

*Hang your head in shame, Cowboys fans. At last night's license plate auction, a 25-year lease on the personalized plate "COWBOYS" went for $11,500 while "FERRARI" sold for $15,000. And, in a shocker, "FT WORTH" ($5,000) drew more than "DALLAS" ($1,500). So much for Cowtown being a grounded, substance-over-style lil' ol' town.

*On my list of the worst humans on the planet, these hatemongers are near the top. Supposedly in the name of God and Bible, they regularly picket the funerals of soldiers and this week were in Arizona to intensify the sadness over the shooting of a 9-year-old girl. To call themselves Baptists is criminal. This is a cult, plain and simple. If I was in charge their compound in Kansas would be raided by sundown.

*If you wanted the Texas Rangers to sign a proven closer and move Neftali Feliz into the starting rotation sorry, because Rafael Soriano has signed with the New York Yankees.

*Ray Horton has my vote for Cowboys' defensive coordinator. I covered him when he was a safety for the team in the early '90s, and I can tell you he doesn't put up with a lot of shit. Typical conversation: I'd ask him for a 10-minute interview and he'd bring a stopwatch. After 10 minutes, end of interview. Polite, just no nonsense. And with Greg Manusky (Chargers) apparently off the market, the Cowboys are also considering the Browns' Rob Ryan

*Hot.

*3 points Hotter.

*Hottest.

*As expected, Dirk Nowitzki's absence from the Mavericks is just as devastating as when Tony Romo left the Cowboys. After tonight's loss in San Antonio, Dallas will be 2-7 without its star.

*The SEC. Don Nelson. Ross Perot Jr. And now the United Football League. Anybody involved in more lawsuits than Mark Cuban?

*Hello, $3 gas. I'll never forget around Christmas 2008 when, with a boost from my Tom Thumb Reward card, I filled up at $1.09 per gallon. Swear. Filled up my 15.5-gallon tank for $17.10. (Got the picture to prove it.)  Next week, even with the same TT help, that purchase is going to run closer to $43. Ouch.

*Look, I like ripping Sarah Palin as much as anyone. Quitting as governor of Alaska mid-term and then hinting at being President? Yep. Not being able to name any of our founding fathers or any news sources that she reads daily? Double yep. But I don't get the outrage over her using "blood libel" the other day when deflecting indirect responsibility for the Arizona shootings. I've never even heard the term. Probably because I'm not Jewish.

*Does the NFL really think the prohibiting of businesses using the term "Super Bowl" helps it in any way? A sports bar is throwing a "Big Game" party or an electronics store is selling cheap TVs as part of its "Big Game" special. Do you not go or buy just because it doesn't say "Super Bowl" or can you figure it out? Thought so.

*Odds to win the 2012 BCS National Championship are up: Oklahoma is the favorite at 3.5/1, followed by Alabama at 7.5/1. TCU (20), Texas (20), Texas A&M (35) and Texas Tech (125) are long shots.

So sporties, what's going on during this fine Saturday? Were catching a nap and waiting for some football. It's alot better watching it in my condo w Canadace, than being all cold and actually playing outside..suckers. Can't wait for it to warm up so I can try to qualify for the Open again..now there's a real sport. See y'all later, Romonater Out.

I can't stand Sarah Palin either (and I voted Republican for the first time in the last election and will do so again in 2012) but RW should take that log outta his eye before talking about her being uninformed.

Dumb TV characters, and I'm taking this to mean the character is portrayed as unintelligent rather than that the character is poorly written (much like this sentence): HIllary from Fresh Prince, Waldo from Family Matters, Burt Reynolds from SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy, Jason Stackhouse from True Blood, and Paula Abdul from American Idol.

I can't begin to rank them. Some of the others I've seen here are pretty good.

Ol Davy wants a few comments.

* The stadium configuration for a basketball game enables more seats, hence the higher attendance.

*While doing my chores, I was tuned into the first bit of RAGE. You boys were talking 'bout the license plates. Sweet Greggo asked "How many people are going to know they got their license plate this way?" or somesuch. Little Boy Richie says to him, "Everybody listening to 105.3 The Fan right now will know." That's about 9 people, I reckon.

*Just like the big German being out of the lineup, had General Sam Houston stood with us inside the Alamo, those Mexicans wouldn't have had a chance. Or would they? Gen. Sam drank a lot.

*Blood Libel isn't offensive to you because you're an rascal that thinks the Cowboys need a black coach for them receivers. You can't notice offensive material when you're spouting offensive material.

*My number 1 dumbest character? Richie Whitt playing "Mr. Big Time Radio Drive Time Host" on 105.3 The Fan.

*Fort Worth Stock Show overrated? No. Richie Whitt on the radio overrated? Hell, yes.

*I agree with you on the guns. Had them Mexicans scaled the Alamo walls and challenged us to a fist fight, we would've beat the tar out of them one by one.

Come August when them Cowboys are doing their practicing in ol San Antone, ya'll stop by the Menger Hotel, where we hang out. Ol' Davy will show ya'll a good ol' time. Except for that little boy Richie Whitt, he ain't tall enough and the bartender would yank him by the earring and toss him out on the street!

Hey Douche,

Dispense with the political references. Don't you realize that by opening your uninformed mouth that you run the risk of alienating one half of your readership, and with you it's always a shot at the right. Noone cares about your political beliefs. I don't give a rats ass about Sarah Palin, but do you honestly believe that she can't name one founding father? That she doesn't read anything of value? The woman ran an entire state very successfully, and you can't even keep a job at a reputable newspaper, or get over a 2.0 rating on the radio, yet you're an expert on Sarah Palin? Stick to sports, a subject where you can kinda bs your way through.

Yeah lets ban guns so that all the goog people cant have them and the thugs and gangsters will still get them, and now I would have to defend myself and my property with a knife versus the intruders gun. Again people do kill people.

Gas prices suck, but why arent people bitching at Obama about it now? Oh thats right, he didnt create a hurricane to destroy the oil supply.

I don think 20/1 is a longshot when there are 113 D1 teams and the top 2 are 3.5 and 7 respectively. now TT at 125 for sure is

I dont like that WBC pickets soldiers funerals with all there gay bashing, but if you know anything about Baptists, that group is just shouting louder than the rest, trust me babptist epecially one in the church a long time, dont like Gays just like they dont like beer dancing and gambling. Baptists are some of the most hateful people in the world. This idiot just proves it in the public eye and most baptists dont like that stuff out in public bc its not PC

I hope Tre Wilcox personally kicks you out of his place for upping the tool quotient ten-fold. That's okay, you'll fit right in at Ra Sushi just down the road with the rest of the middle-aged posers.

Figures you half-ass this post too. Your plus/minus this week was worse than the Cavs against the Lakers. Don't think we didn't notice your avoidance of the recent ratings report either.

So you're okay with a hardass DC, but the wide receivers coach needs to be a soft, cuddly black bear? Does that mean the secondary coach needs to be too, so they can gently pet and coddle the dipshits at corner and safety?

My opinion of anyone with custom plate drops, much less spending significant money on one. How much did you drop on "DOUCHE"?

5. I have to get this over with. If Horton is hired, does that fulfill your quota of black coaches RW? If you followed a coach and liked him, does color really matter? The last time the Cowboys had a true defensive coordinator, he was african american. But what's more important with coaches, being buffers or not putting up with shit?

9. the Mavs need to focus on next season. The Spurs are running away with it, they'll put their boot on the Mavs neck tonight. Once again, wouldn't Melo like playing here???? Even if you gave up the farm, couldn't you rebuild by next year? It would mean giving up Roddy, but Dirk's time is running out and methinks Melo>Roddy.

RW, you forgot to mention your jinx on the Heat. After the King's tweet, they're 0-2 and got blown out last night after previously winning 19 out of 20, mostly on the road. Would have liked another shout out to Major Dick Winters besides "Dead and Gone", but I can't expect that here.(www.majordickwinters.com ) I guess handicap parking placards usurp a great American hero and complaining about gun rights.

RDP1 out!

"The woman ran an entire state very successfully"

Would that be before or after she abandoned her post because she couldn't take the pressure?

why pick on only Lacey and Sybil? There are plenty of generic personalities on the Fan. I think Sybil and Lacey are less bland than most. But I guess they're girls in a male dominated genre of sports talk, which is begging for the Coors light guzzlers amongst the audience to turn on them more than the generic male personalities.

Where did Richie say to outlaw guns? The argument is that it can help make a poor decision by someone permanent.

For all the gun rights advocates, would you be in favor of tighter gun control laws such as making background checks more strenuous and lessening the amount of bullets on automatic weapon clips? This seems like a reasonable solution, but any serious debate is immediately dismissed as an attack of freedom or some nonsense. I am for responsible owners having the right to own a firearm, but the fact a crackpot like the Tucson shooter can so easily walk into a sporting good store and minutes later walkout with an automatic weapon with 30 shell clips is absurd.

They aren't sportsy, even though it's a sports station. So what are they, yuk monkeys? They don't do that well. They're kinda dumb, not-eloquent, with grating voices and laugh, supposed eye candy. On a radio station. Where you can't see them. So you tell us what exactly they add. Lacey making asinine football picks is good radio?
