Why do so many NFL players have dreads?
Monday, November 12, 2007
Staying on too long and hurting your team to break the NFL rushing record
2 years with the ARIZONA CARDINALS!
Dancing with the Stars
But you suck at TV. Mixed metaphors, Theismann-like comments, stumbling through your words, its just embarrassing. You were always a me-first, stat-hungry player and now your an awful "commentator".
Maybe you should just go run a Ford dealership, but just go away. Give me the Playmaker any day.

Now on to those idiots at HP...They did decide to give me a hard time...5-6pm on a Friday evening. A little back story: My TV is one year and one month old, and guess how long my warranty is. Well, my TV has been squiggling every time a white flash hits the screen. HP has sent out a tech twice before and made the problem worse, and now this ass-clown they sent out Friday has officially destroyed my beautiful new TV. Won't even turn on. And this took him three hours to accomplish. So, to recap:
Friday, 6pm - my TV is broken but I can still watch it
Friday, 9pm - No picture, no TV and Friday night ruined
Where's my new TV?
Thanks HP, you jerk

I suppose its time to post a picture of the boy. Buckley came to us at the first of the year, and he is a pain in the ass. But he make a funny noise when he scratches his ears, he constantly runs wind sprints around the house, he does fetch (when HE wants to) and the best thing about him is that he always wants to be close to us.
He's named after LuAnn's boyfriend on King of the Hill, so you have to call him Buckalee.

Of course, as I'm typing this, I'm chewing on a Twix and Mountain Dew, two things I normally eat. But I've been eating like crap lately, and it shows.
I'll post an official weight tomorrow, but I think I can use this blog as a motivational tool. I think I need to lose about 25-30 pounds. Perhaps I can use the gym membership that I've been paying for.
I also really want to start playing golf. But it really seems like I never have the time.

Unclebarky - Great source for all things DFW TV News.
I have a definitive Lost site. This is for hardcore fans only. Great screencaps, easter eggs, spoilers and rumors.
I'm not a good dancer, but I have a signature move which I stole from the Fresh Prince of all people.
Leenks (NSFW) - Great link site for any crap you want to see on the web. I enjoy their Leenks Pictures of the Week.
Here are two other sports blogs sites:
Awful Announcing (you guys still owe me a Natrone Means jersey)
Fire Joe Morgan (this guy really doesn't like him)
Futurama (Adult Swim) - This show is slowly growing on me. Its similar to where the Simpsons were once upon a time.
Dallas Cowboys football - Is it wrong of me to enjoy football this much? I love sports as much as the next guy, but I REALLY love the Cowboys. I feel ill when I miss the game, and I'll Tivo a game I already know the outcome to. I'm devastated after a loss and absolutely giddy after a win. And I have a Tony Romo mancrush.
Tiffani Amber-Theissen Division
Fastlane (TV One) - Maybe my all-time favorite show...It was good enough for me to buy it illegally on eBay. It lasted on year on FOX and left on a nasty cliffhanger, but Tiffani is my girl.
90210 (SoapNet) - Between you and me, I shouldn't still be watching this. Actually, I've never should have watched this show. Brandon's hair is one of my great heroes.
Saved by the Bell (Everywhere) - Friends Forever by the Zach Attack, Screech melting down in real life, Slater's mullet and unnecessary wrestling subplots, The College Years, and of course my girl.
BaD Radio (1310 The Ticket) - Sure I'll listen to The Musers and the Hardline, but those shows are mailing it in these days. This show was good enough to pull me away from DP before he left. We just seem like we're on the same wavelength.

2. Family Guy (FOX) - Although I believe this show has peaked, and the best shows now run on Adult Swim, this show can deliver from time to time. The Peter-Chicken fued, Quagmire, Cleveland, and the Stewie-Brian relationship works for me. The fact that Brian is Todd McFarlane's real voice cracks me up everytime he's interviewed.
3. King of the Hill (FOX) - This show has definately peaked. But Hank Hill is my dad. I think I appreciated this show much more when I didn't live in Texas. From the panic over snow flurries to seeing the Mexican flag things from Panchos (there will be a post on Panchos in the future) it really captures the essence of Texas and Texans. The episode where Hank finds out he is not a native Texan captures the show.
4. Making News: Texas Style (TV Guide) - What a train wreck, and that's why I love it. My business is a screwed up business and I appreciate it having started in a similar station (except for their facilities, staffing and the fact the station is in a mall). I love the fact that an entire show didn't air, their live shots keep crashing and the 10pm producer working more than 100 straight days really hits on what its like to start in the business.
5. List shows (VH1 mostly) - My love for pop culture is the overwhelming reason. It overrides any disappointment I have in why Citizen Kane continues to be the #1 movie of all time (and other various slights).
Special mention: Lost - This show will be my favorite once it actually comes back on air. I love that you can watch the show on different levels. My wife loves the show too, but she only sees the on-air show and doesn't scour the internet looking for screen grabs.

Spears Update: So she is turning down a chance to perform with JT. What a train wreck. I'm actually looking forward to her next meltdown. Very exciting

All important questions that will never be answered.
Here's the deal. I don't live in Des Moines and I do live in Dallas. Glad you're caught up. Oh and I have a new dog, Buckley. He's a pain in the ass. I'll post a picture later.
Tami just had elbow surgery and she is doing much better. But since this blog is titled "theCarr" and not theTami, that's it for her.
Why am I fascinated with pop culture? I feel like I get sucked in really easily and that I should be above all that. But I'm not. It's more interesting to me that Lindsey Lohan is going to jail or learning the words to the Family Guy theme song than people trapped in coal mines or another story about how hot it is here in Texas. I do love sports...Oh how I love sports. The highlight of this blog will be the trappings of my fantasy team, Cobra Kai! Oh boy, I bet you can't wait.
It seems so lame to write a bunch of crap that no one will ever see. I'll see if people will visit.
