1. Marion Barber succumbed to the not extremely well known but still-dangerous “D Magazine Pulse opener curse,” bruising his ribs in the Cowboys’ season-opening cakewalk over the Cleveland Browns. He’ll be fine. I bruised my thumb rebuilding our shed during the second half of the game. Look for me to be listed as “questionable” on this week’s injury report.
2. Apparently, hunting within the city limits in Prosper and McKinney isn’t a big deal “because the law accounts for the distance that ammunition can travel.” I had a joke here about physics, but then I realized it didn’t quite work. So now, I’m just going to sit back and figure out the odds of the first comment not being made by one Trey Garrison. They aren’t astronomical, but I doubt Vegas would take any action.
3. I’m not sure if you knew this, but turns out, vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin recently had a baby. I just wish someone had made a bigger deal about this. (Yeah, you’re right–I’m openly baiting Trey now. And also biting Eric’s Friday Leading Off style. Rare two-fer.)
