Derek Holland Has Twitter Issues. Apparently while Holland was pitching (or sitting on the bench), someone somehow tweeted a homophobic slur using Holland’s Twitter account. What was the slur? The AP story doesn’t say. I get that they don’t want to print a slur, but couldn’t we at least be told what it rhymes with? Also confounding is this quote from Holland: “I’m pretty upset with the whole situation and me being accused of something I haven’t done. In case you haven’t seen, all I ever do write Chuck Norris facts or random facts, ‘a pig or a duck, you can’t hear its echo.’ I don’t ever write anything like that.” Gramatically and semantically so confusing.
Cowboys Lose. Speaking of things I can’t wrap my head around, the headline for this WFAA story reads (for now) “Romo Unable To Catch Passes From Romo, Cowboys Lose Big.” He threw five picks last night. Pretty sure that cost Zac a win in the office pool.
Local Man Gets Good Report on Daughter in Early Morning Parent-Teacher Conference. She’s a little chatty and sometimes forgets to raise her hand, but otherwise she’s killing first grade. (Sorry. That’s why Leading Off is late and only features two real items.)
