    Does anyone have a link to an article or articles about poor Jen’s failure to launch? I can’t find anything other than her Twitter whines.

    it’s always something with her, and its never any fault of her own.

    I don’t think there’s anything else.

    Unless it’s moving to some other (smaller one recommended) venue, looks like the First Responder Bowl is dun before it ever started…next year’s Winter Classic is at the Cotton Bowl Stadium.

    they were gushing yesterday about how it will be good to see the Cotton Bowl being used again on January 1st.

    that place is the shits. Think of the Big E with big tank in the middle of it.

    The Bruins’ players dressed like the cast of PEAKY BLINDERS before and after yesterday’s game.

    It seems like they’ve thrown money into the place (even upgraded it a bit) but for nothing other than the Texas/OU game. Strange to do that for one event.

    Hell of a take here

    They may go deep into the playoffs, but I’m just about out on these Celtics after another loss. They have no rudder. After one decent playoff run, they think they can just flip the switch whenever they want

    The Cotton Bowl has been an after thought here in Dallas because of a few things.

    – Jerry Jones has AT&T and the Ford Center which has some games
    – Rangers have their Ballpark and a new one being built

    -FC Dallas just had the Frisco Bowl in their stadium and will have 1AA National Championship

    – Then Allen and McKinney High Schools just built two decent stadiums for High School football.

    For outdoor hockey they probably could use the Rangers Ballpark or FC Dallas instead.

    So if I’m reading jforb’s chart right, Almost-A-Coach has added less than 2000 subscribers in the 10 months he’s been tracking it. And how many dropped off at the one-year renewal point in September?

    Big question – does he keep going long enough to stiff Sean McAdam for spring training expenses?

    The big push, including discounted subscriptions, for 10k subscribers by the end of the year fell about 500 short. They’ll eventually hit that mark in February or March, but that’s going to be way behind Coach Craig’s projected growth plan. On the plus side, he doesn’t have to pay Loyko for draft coverage this year. Unfortunately, all the other expenses from last year will come due again this year. If he can’t pay McAdam everything he was due for 2018 baseball coverage, he won’t be able to for 2019, either. Does McAdam jump ship before Bedard can stiff him some more?

    When I thought I was moving to the Dallas area 2 years ago I visited both Allen and McKinney.  that Allen stadium is as big as Fitton Field at Holy Cross.  Obviously nicer since it is a modern stadium.  For a High School.  Unreal.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if Loyko was paying Coach Betard. If he did get paid it wasn’t much.

    Bummer. Supposed to be in some episodes of Season 10 of Curb. Wonder if they got enough filmed to use them.

    Think I’ve asked before, but did Coach put up all the money to start or did the original writers invest lose a bit too?
