So long Yogi,


My tribute to the greatest guitarist of all time

In what has become sort of a tradition this time of year, I pay tribute to Dallas born and raised Stevie Ray Vaughn singing his rendition of Texas Flood….

The Aggies have a Mack truck on defense

Texas A&M defensive tackle Daylon Mack is a terrifying combination of size and speed. He also happens to be a true freshman, which means he’s going to be around for at least two more years after this season.

He’s a terror on the inside of the defensive line for one-on-one blocks or double teams, but when you don’t even try to block him he can do extremely bad things to your ball carrier as Nevada found out the hard way on Saturday.


Sometimes it’s a good idea to at least put a body on him. Look at how quickly he gets into the backfield. I mean, he almost takes this handoff.

Warning, graphic language. Sorry.

We say goodbye to a hero

Family, friends and the military remembered Tuskegee Airman and fighter pilot Calvin Spann as a dedicated veteran, hero and active community member.

Spann died Sept. 6 of natural causes at his McKinney home. He was 90.

At his memorial service Saturday, Spann’s family thanked Fellowship Christian Center Church in Allen for embracing him.

“He really became part of your community,” said his oldest daughter, Gai Spann. “You really opened your hearts to him, and I think that’s a testament to the type of person he was.”

Born in Rutherford, N.J., Spann was a Tuskegee Airman and fighter pilot with the 100th Fighter Squadron of the 332nd Fighter Group. He was part of the graduating class of 44G, an elite squadron of black pilots, at Tuskegee Flight School.

He moved to North Texas in 2006 to be close to his grandchildren.

I had a chance to visit with Lt. Spann when he and other pilots visited Bank of America in 2011. I was able to take a video of the occasion:

He was truly a great man to listen to and to hear his stories.


Why does ESPN hate Texas A&M???

So I like many other millions of people work all week just looking forward to seeing my Aggies win another game.

I sit down on the couch at 5:45 PM for the 6:00 game.

Popcorn ready? Check.

Beverage ready? Check.

The dog Sarge has been outside and ready for nap? Check.

And then, I turn on the television and switch to the advertised channel to watch my glorious Texas A&M Aggies, and guess what? There is another game going on!! It’s like ITT Tech vs. North Dakota State…and it 54-0 ITT Tech, and ESPN WON’T GET TO MY GAME!!!!!!!!!!!

Then a little message scrolls across the bottom of the page saying I need to change to ESPN XYZ to view the A&M game!!!! I don’t have ESPN XYZ!!!!!!! I can’t find ESPN XYZ!!!!!!!!

Then about 17 minutes later, the skies open up and I get a message to return to the ORIGINAL ESPN channel, and there is my ball game. You would think I had suffered enough no???? No way Jose!!

With 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, ESPN decides that the rest of the country wants to see Mississippi State and LSU!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

They moved my game!!!! I can’t find it again!!!!!!!

Dear Texas A&M. Can you please get your own channel??? This is ridiculous!!

Take the PIG Personality Test

We did this at work today. Pretty cool actuality.

Would you like to know more about your personality?

Are you open to learning more about several important elements of your personality preferences? Then here are the simple instructions.

1 – Take out a blank piece of 8 ½ x 11 inch paper.

2 – Now draw a pig.

Those are the instructions for the PIG Personality Test.

Draw a pig.

The pig is of the animal variety.

Your drawing will serve to interpret your personality preferences.

After you have drawn your pig, please read the results below.

Do not read the results until after you have drawn your pig.

Now . . . draw a pig.











Did you draw your pig? O.K. Now read the results.

PIG Personality Test Results:

1. If your pig is drawn toward the Top of your paper, you are an optimistic person with a positive attitude. You generally anticipate the best possible outcomes of actions and events. In other words, you see the glass as half full.

2. If your pig is drawn toward the Bottom of your paper, you tend to be more of a pessimistic person. You generally expect the worst. You see the glass as half empty.

3. If your pig is drawn toward the Middle of your paper, you are a realist who tends to face facts and deal with them realistically. You see the glass as dirty and put it in the dishwasher.

4. If your pig is drawn facing Left, you believe in tradition, are friendly, outgoing and tend to remember dates and birthdays. Hint for husbands: remember your wife’s birthday but never her age.

5. If your pig is drawn facing Right, you are innovative and active but not as good about remembering dates.

6. If your pig is drawn facing Forward, you are direct, straightforward, welcome discussion, and often enjoy playing the devil’s advocate.

7. If your pig is drawn with Many Details, you are analytical, cautious, careful and may be distrustful.

8. If your pig is drawn with Few Details, you are more impulsive, care little for detail and are willing to take risks.

9. If your pig is drawn with 4 Legs showing, you are secure, stick to your ideals, and can be stubborn.

10. If your pig is drawn with Less than 4 Legs showing, you may be insecure, uncertain, or living through a period of major change.

11. The Larger the pig’s Ears you have drawn, the better Listener you are.

12. And last but not least, the Longer the pig’s Tail you have drawn, the more satisfied you are with the quality of your love life.

I have found this assessment to be a great ice-breaker before a meeting, seminar or training session. I have used it literally hundreds of times and although the instrument is completely un-validated, sometimes the accuracy of the results is close to uncanny as reported by those who take it.

Do you know Joe Banyard?
