Watch A Rented Lamborghini Spectacularly Crash On A Dallas Toll Road

When a Lamborghini Gallardo was found, abandoned and destroyed on a Dallas toll road it didn’t take long for reporters to conclude it was a rented car. It also didn’t take long for us to request the video from local authorities. We just got it, and it’s exactly as ridiculous as you’d hoped.

Mother of Slain High Schooler Blames Basketball

Last year, a Dallas high school student was murdered by another high school student who happened to live with him. They weren't related and the only reason they shared an abode was that they were both talented basketball players. The murdered child's mother has now filed a lawsuit against the Dallas Independent School… » 3/26/15 12:40pm 3/26/15 12:40pm

Giants Brief Players On Ebola Before Trip To Dallas


Given America's infrastructure and standards of medical care, we realistically have very little to fear from the West African Ebola outbreak that recently arrived in Dallas. At the same time, it's hard to blame anyone for wanting to learn more about the disease, and that includes the NFL, which this week sent a letter… » 10/16/14 1:58pm 10/16/14 1:58pm

God Can't Save You From Ebola, But This Song Might

Not too long ago, I spent six months living in Dallas. I found it to be a horrid place full of old-school, overt racists and liberal champions who threaten to fuck young journalists in the ass. That said, I have a contingent of homies there that I love with all my heart. I enjoy waking up, popping open my laptop,… » 10/15/14 5:57pm 10/15/14 5:57pm

Texas Sportscaster Destroys Silly Opposition To Michael Sam In The NFL

No One Notices The Spurs Because No One Notices San Antonio

Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,… » 6/08/13 4:11pm 6/08/13 4:11pm

Replacement Officials Actively Sabotaging Players In The End Zone Now

OK, so this was not on purpose, but is it ever funny. Here we have an official tossing his cap, which is not itself rare. However, Kevin Ogletree steps on the exact spot where the hat lands and he slips down, ruining the play. These things keep happening and we keep thinking of them as a perfect example of the… » 9/23/12 3:16pm 9/23/12 3:16pm

Michael Vick's Dog Receives Key To The City

Back in February, when folks in Dallas were outraged that the city's Mayor Pro Tem had awarded Michael Vick with a key to the city that, he explained, was really "for the children," the Dallas Observer ran the headline that included the phrase, "As It Turns Out, Anybody Can Get a Key to the City of Dallas." Last week,… » 5/12/11 3:00pm 5/12/11 3:00pm

The Super Bowl Week Orgy, Through The Eyes Of An NFL Player

Every player in the NFL can buy two Super Bowl tickets at face value, if he so chooses. All he has to do is contact his club's ticket guy and arrange for the pickup. Some teams require rookies and second-year players to pick up the tickets at a location in the host city. Presumably, this policy is intended to deter… » 2/03/11 5:00pm 2/03/11 5:00pm
