Texas Football Fan Nearly Castrated in Bar Fight in Oklahoma Bar

This is an old story. I thought I had already run.
Apparently I hadn't.

OKLAHOMA CITY — To some Oklahoma football fans, there are things that just aren't done in the heart of Sooner Nation, and one of them is to walk into a bar wearing a Texas Longhorns T-shirt.
That's exactly what touched off a bloody skirmish that left a Texas-shirt-wearing fan nearly castrated and an Oklahoma fan facing aggravated assault charges that could put him in prison for up to five years.
According to police, 32-year-old Texas fan Brian Christopher Thomas walked into Henry Hudson's Pub on June 17 wearing a Longhorns T-shirt and quickly became the focus of football "trash talk" from another regular, 53-year-old Oklahoma fan Allen Michael Beckett.
Some fans are a bit too intense. He is not a typical OU fan, I can assure you. I am the typical OU fan.
I go to games when I can, I watch the Sooners everytime they are on the TV.
I support my team in all sporting events.
I do not castrate the fans of opposing teams. I mean really, how are they to breed more Texans for me to make fun of on DDDN?
I always rout against Texas even when they play Miami or USC.

Shakira rests hips to study at UCLA

LOS ANGELES - Shakira may get high grades in singing and swiveling her hips, but what about ancient Western history?
For the past month, the Colombian pop star has been taking a class at the University of California, Los Angeles, called "Introduction to Western Civilization: Ancient Civilizations from Prehistory to Circa A.D. 843."
Rest those hips? If college is anything like when I went, there is no rest for hips that hot.

Bush preserves large troop level in Iraq

WASHINGTON - President Bush's claim that progress in Iraq justifies preserving a large U.S. military presence there for at least 10 more months was shadowed by discouraging developments on the security and political fronts.
I could have told you not much was going to change. And even if we leave Iraq, we'll just transfer troops to Afghanistan. The war against terrorist is far from over.

Mother of Pearl!!!! That's stiff.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Bill Belichick is ready for his close-up. The Patriots' coach escaped suspension for using a video camera to spy on opposing coaches, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell deciding instead on Thursday night to fine him $500,000 and dock the team $250,000 and a first-day draft pick next year.
Half a million? Looks like he'll have to forego getting another girlfriend this month. But the good news is they caught him "cheating", and for what that's worth maybe it'll curb other teams from doing it.

Gulf Coast recovering from Humberto

Jack Payton, 72, sits in front of his home that was severely damaged by high winds from Hurricane Humberto as his wife, Connie Payton, removes a wreath from the front door Thursday, Sept. 13, 2007 in High Island, TX. The Paytons plan to stay with relatives until their home can be repaired. Humberto, the first hurricane to hit the U.S. in two years, sneaked up on south Texas and Louisiana overnight and crashed ashore Thursday with heavy rains and 80 mph winds, killing at least one person.
Fix up his place? Let's see it's south Texas, so yeah the place could use some straightening up. But I promise it doesn't look like the hurricane did much more than move some of the lawn furniture at this house.
80 mph winds? Hell we've had 3 days like that just this year in Norman. As for Humberto "sneaking up", seriously you want to use the term sneaked up when talking about a cloud circulation the size of North Dakota?

German auto show emphasizes lower emissions

At the International Auto Show, environmentally friendly cars were the headliners Monday, with General Motors Corp. unveiling a new hybrid compact — one among many vehicles at the show with advanced propulsion systems and cleaner engines.
I think I'll wait to buy a hybrid until Rolls Royce makes one. don't see women like these getting in hybrids. It doesn't happen.

Teen bride: Salvation tied to marriage

Jeffs, 51, leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, went on trial Thursday on two counts of rape as an accomplice for using his church authority to coerce the marriage.
This guy is nothing more than a sick pervert that likes to have sex with under age girls.

Remember the box set of bin Laden videos?

Researcher: Bin Laden's beard is real, video is not

On the Friday before the sixth anniversary of 9/11, Osama bin Laden appeared in a new video, his first since prior to the U.S. presidential elections in 2004. In analyzing the video, Neal Krawetz of Hactor Factor, an expert on digital image forensics, said in his latest blogs that the video contained many visual and audio splices, and that all of the modifications were of very low quality.
So I guess the Special Edition Box Set will have to wait.
Is Osama bin Laden dead?
And if so, how does that affect the "followers" if they didn't know that?

More stuff you can't afford

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - What price exclusivity? If you ask Lamborghini, one million euros ($1.4 million) should do it -- before tax, of course.
1.4 million? You could retire for life on that kinda money. But the very fact that I am thinking of retiring alread at age 42, is why I'll never have 1.4 million to buy a car.

General: Rocket associated with Iran

BAGHDAD - A fatal attack launched two days ago against the headquarters garrison of the American military in Iraq was carried out using a 240 mm rocket — a type of weapon provided to Shiite extremists by Iran, a U.S. general said Thursday.
How much longer do we put up with this crap? Iran is helping to destablize Iraq. There I said it, how hard could it be to get the U.N. to say it, and then ATTEMPT to do something about it?
See how I said ATTEMPT instead of DO, there?

Humberto Upgraded to Hurricane

HOUSTON -- A tropical storm approaching the southeast Texas coast has been upgraded to a hurricane shortly before it was expected make landfall.
Just as my mother is coming here to visit.

Ho, lotta shakin' goin' on

PADANG, Indonesia - Three powerful earthquakes jolted Indonesia in less than 24 hours, triggering tsunami alerts Thursday and sending panicked residents fleeing to high ground. At least nine people were killed in the tremors.
Hopefully everyone there is alright. It seems like a tough place to live.

I think everyone has covered this song.

Little rovers survive dust storms on Mars: NASA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Gusts of wind have cleared dust from the solar collectors on one of two robot rovers on the surface of Mars and both have awakened from the sleep NASA put them into, the space agency said on Friday.
The rovers have been operating for more than three years, although they were only designed to last three months.
3 years longer? Unintended success always makes you out to be the hero.

Putin dissolves Russian government

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin dissolved Russia's government Wednesday in a major political shakeup ahead of parliamentary and presidential elections, the Kremlin said.
The dissolution is expected to result in a new prime minister, who will be seen as Putin's choice to succeed him after he steps down next spring.
That's an interesting move on Putin's part.

Just like the good old days

MOSCOW - The Russian military has successfully tested what it described as the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb, Russia's state television reported Tuesday.
Channel One television said the new weapon, nicknamed the "dad of all bombs" is four times more powerful than the U.S. "mother of all bombs."
How arms race. Somehow this makes me long for the "good old days" of the Cold War.

Follow-up to the Follow-up Yesterday: Bills' Everett improves, may walk again

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Kevin Everett voluntarily moved his arms and legs on Tuesday when partially awakened, prompting a neurosurgeon to say the Buffalo Bills' tight end would walk again — contrary to the grim prognosis given a day before.
See this is why I waited yesterday. I should have waited longer.
I hate that about the news business. Sometimes the desire to be first on a story, leads people to write sensationalistic crap.
As he continues to heal, our prayers are with him.

Second Flier's Sexy Outfit Comes Under Fire

ENCINO, Calif. -- A second woman is complaining after an airline took issue with her sexy attire. Setara Qassim said she was flying home to Burbank, Calif., from Las Vegas in June when a Southwest Airlines flight attendant gave her a blanket and told her to cover up.
I sense a pattern here. Check back here next week for the coverage of the all nude flight from Phoenix to LA.
As soon as we can find her MySpace page...we'll get it up. A potential hit could be this one. But you have to be her friend to view.

How many times do I have to say it?

OAKLAND - Firefighters battling a blaze at a home in the Oakland hills this morning discovered a marijuana-growing operation, authorities said.
The two-story home at 4969 Stoneridge Court was being renovated so the entire second floor could be used to grow pot, fire Capt. Melinda Drayton said. Firefighters found more than 50 plants when they arrived at the home, which was otherwise unoccupied, around 3 a.m.
The fire "appears to have started from electricity being used for the cultivation operation," Drayton said. "I'm not going to say (the electrical wiring) was illegal, but it looked like it was not up to code."
Pot or perhaps GREED makes you stupid.

Of course these guys were amateurs compared to this bunch.

Americans see 9/11 as most important event of their lives

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Six years after the September 11 attacks on the United States, most Americans view the plane hijackings that killed around 3,000 people as the most significant historical event of their lives, according to a poll released Monday.
I would have to say that the most significant event of my life is not the September 11th attack.
I'm going to go with Landing on the Moon, followed by the Iran Hostage Crisis, and then the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

Are the attacks of September 11th the most significant event of your life? Let us know.

Bills' Kevin Everett may be paralyzed

I waited to run this story until today, to get the doctor's view once the surgery was over and the swelling had gone down. His prognosis will change with time, and we hope the best for him.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Kevin Everett sustained a "catastrophic" and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills' season opener and is unlikely to walk again, the surgeon who operated on him said Monday.
"A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely," orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cappuccino said. "I believe there will be some permanent neurologic deficit."
This is just horrible. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin and his family.

I had a thought the other day.
Do rugby players get life threatening injuries like this?
Does the wearing of "protective" gear by American Football players make the sport more violent and potentially destructive to the player's bodies?

Utah Schools Will Not Observe 9/11 Anniversary

Several Utah schools have decided to let Sept. 11, 2007 pass without observing the sixth anniversary of the unprecedented terror attacks against the United States -- over fear of re-kindling the haunting memories for those who vaguely remember them, or introducing them to children who weren't born yet.
OMG! It's like the bananas and the monkeys story all over again. Don't tell the kids there are people trying to kill us, just because we are different from them. God forbid.

Bin Laden wants 'caravan' of martyrs

CAIRO, Egypt - Osama bin Laden urged sympathizers to join the "caravan" of martyrs as he praised one of the Sept. 11 suicide hijackers in a new video that emerged Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Remember, don't tell your children about this, we wouldn't want to scare them.

Bad news for Newspapers

But some print edition readers can't or won't use the Internet and are frustrated because certain of their favorite items have been deleted from their newspaper. I've talked to a number of these frustrated subscribers in recent weeks, and it's difficult to know how to respond. Many have told me they either can't afford to buy or don't want to use a computer.
Readers: Failure to adapt.
Does any one of you actually use the Want Ads for anything other than to line the bird cage?

"-30- The Collapse of the Great American Newspaper" is a compendium of 15 mostly gloomy views of what's happening, what can be done about it and why you should care about newspapers -- or about how you get news at all.
And like the movie "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" sucked, newspapers suck. They suck at adapting to their audience, suck at delivering timely news, and suck because they won't change their content.
In Norman, the Norman Transcript sucks because the reporters they hire are terrible. Their ability to tell the story without changing or out right corrupting the facts of the stories is only overshadowed by their failure to report a story AT ALL.
And for the first person who cries, "journalistic integrity" is suffering because we don't have newspapers, gets a boot upside the head.

Vegan Views Got Me Kicked Out Of Class

An art teacher removed from the classroom for encouraging pupils not to eat meat vowed Monday not to return to Fox River Grove Middle School until it eliminates milk and all other animal products from the lunch menu.

Hot for Teacher, South Carolina Style

(Clinton) - A former middle school teacher accused of having sex with several boys entered a guilty plea Thursday.
Allenna Ward pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degreee criminal sexual conduct, and three counts of committing a lewd act on a minor. She was indicted earlier this year.
The extra E in second degreeeeeee is for sExy!

College Football Recap

The AP Top 25 shows Oklahoma up 2 spots to 3 bumping West Virginia and Florida to 4th and 5th. Texas manages to go up one and Wisconsin drops 2 on a seemingly arbitrary way of getting OU into the BCS Championship in the first week.
I think its a bit premature as OU hasn't actually played anyone yet and won't until we meet Texas in October.
The Coaches poll has Oklahoma up one and Texas up one bumping Wisconsin to 7th.
Lee Corso had Oklahoma playing LSU for the title in preseason. While Kirk Herbstreet had OU playing West Virginia for the title.
USC was idle this week and plays at Nebraska this Saturday in a much anticipated game.
Freefalling to 18th in the AP poll and 17th in the Coaches poll, Virginia Tech showed why it's not fun to play SEC teams at home, with their loss to the LSU Tigers.
Teams that didn't belong in the top 25 this week...Auburn 13, TCU 19, Boise State 20.
I'd say something about the Michigan team...but it wouldn't be nice, and my mom used to say, "if you can't say anthing..." well this week they take their frustrations out on the also completely unranked Notre Dame Fighting Red Heads.
OU was impressive against a depleated Miami team. Our freshman QB has yet to be tested in the pocket due to the outstanding protection he gets from the line. That with a core of great receivers will take them a long way toward the title.
I think she's excited to support Auburn. Who lost to an unranked South Florida team in OT.

Did I say I love College Football?
