Leading Off (9/28/15)

Cowboys Lose. The #WeedenBoyz version of the team looked dominant at the outset, with Joseph Randle ripping off big gains and Brandon Weeden looking like a professional quarterback. Then Weeden threw a garbage interception, the offense never really recovered, and the Cowboys gave up 22 unanswered points. If there had been another half, they might have given up another 22 or so. If the team doesn’t care about scoring, ya boy is still available.

Jordan Spieth Finishes Off Most Lucrative Season Ever. The 22-year-old golfer took home the Tour Championship with a final round 69, which earned him the No. 1 ranking in the world and another $1.485 million. That gives him — not counting the $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup — $12,030,465 for the year, a new PGA Tour record. Here is a bunch of stats about how awesome his year has been. If Spieth needs a new best friend to guide him through these shark-infested waters, ya boy is always available.

Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina is In Dallas Today. She’s here for a pair of fundraisers. Let’s see if she can avoid this happening again, or at least stop talking about a video she can’t produce. I’d only bet on the former.

Billionaire Investor and Philanthropist Richard Rainwater Dies. He got his start managing the Bass family’s oil fortune and later helped George Bush buy the Texas Rangers. He had been battling supranuclear palsy, a rare neurological diseases, since 2009. He was 71.
