  1. Each week there are football blowouts across the nation. Rarely are they more one-sided than the 91-0 rout Aledo High (Aledo, Tex.) put on Western Hills High (Fort Worth, Tex.). Now, one parent has apparently been so concerned by the final scoreline that they took the extraordinary step of filing an official bullying report with the school district because of the thrashing. As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and other Dallas-area outlets, the official bullying report was filed by a Western Hills parent on Saturday, hours after the final whistle ended the most one-sided game so far this year in the Lone Star state. Texas regulations require Aledo's principal to launch a full investigation into the bullying allegation. The administration is then to produce a written report addressing the bullying complaint. If it was surprising that Aledo racked up 91 points on Friday, it was no shock that their win was a dominant one. The Bearcats are among the state's most powerful squads year-in, year-out. Friday's victory improved the team's record to 7-0, with Aledo now averaging a whopping 69 points per game. They've outscored their district foes by an incredible 77 points-per-game. In the immediate aftermath of the most recent rout, both coaches agreed that there was no intention of the near 100-point gap in the scoreline. The two coaches spoke to the Star-Telegram about the blowout, and in a unique twist both expressed a sincere sense of regret about the way the game played out. In particular, Aledo coach Tim Buchanan spoke to multiple outlets asserting that his team's frequent blowouts have become a source of embarrassment for the program. "I think the game was handled fine," [Western Hills coach John] Naylor said. "They're No. 1 for a reason, and I know coach Buchanan. We're fighting a real uphill battle right now. "We just ran into a buzzsaw, you know," Naylor said. "[Aledo] just plays hard. And theyre good sports, and they dont talk at all. They get after it, and thats the way football is supposed to be played in Texas." "I'm upset about [the bullying report]," controversial Aledo coach Tim Buchanan told the Star-Telegram. "I don't like it. I sit there the whole third and fourth quarter and try to think how I can keep us from scoring. "I looked around [after Friday's victory] and asked, 'Is there anyone here that feels good?'"
  2. Actually it was two years to go on October 21 (yesterday), but we are getting there.
  3. Thank you for your service.
  4. I doubt it. NBC loves Sean Hayes. He has two shows that his production company produces on NBC. He will have a longer leash than others. Plus they did just order four more scripts.
  5. Robin Williams just earned a full-season order: CBS announced that it has picked up a full season of its three new freshman comedies, The Crazy Ones, The Millers and Mom. CBS points out that The Crazy Ones, starring Williams, is this season’s No. 1 new comedy in viewers (13.7 million), adults 18-49 (3.6 rating/10 share) and adults 25-54 (4.8/12). It also wins its Thursday time period in viewers. The Millers ranks as the number two comedy in viewers (12.4 million), adults 18-49 (3.2/09) and adults 25-54 (4.3/11). Last night, it retained 97 percent of its premiere rating in adults 18-49, 98 percent in adults 25-54 and 93 percent of its premiere audience. Mom is the third most watched new comedy, averaging 7.98 million viewers, and earning a 2.6/06 in adults 18-49 and a 3.2/07 in adults 25-54. “We’re proud of CBS’ leadership position in comedy and excited to build on it with the back nine pick-ups of these three new comedies,” said CBS President Nina Tassler in a statement. “These series are creatively distinct, continue to improve each week and are led by strong showrunners, writing and production staffs, and feature amazingly talented casts.”
  6. What if the mother/daughter were acting?
  7. Liked him as a player. No managerial experience. He definitely has married well...
  8. Marshawn Lynch = selfish
  9. The Chicago White Sox agreed to a six-year, $68 million contract with Cuban free-agent first baseman Jose Abreu on Friday, according to multiple reports. It is the largest initial free-agent contract ever given to an international player. It is also considered a risky move by the White Sox because Abreu is relatively unknown. However, Abreu does have an even better track record in Cuba than the Oakland A's Yoenis Cespedes and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig. Abreu batted .453 with 33 home runs and 93 RBIs in 63 games in the 2010-11 season, while missing time with a shoulder injury. The previous season, he batted .399 with 30 home runs and 76 RBIs. Abreu, 26, defected this summer. He is expected to take over as the White Sox first baseman. Paul Konerko is a free agent and was scheduled to discuss his future with general manager Rick Hahn. Abreu, who is 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, batted .360 with three home runs and nine RBIs in 25 at-bats in the World Baseball Classic in March. To afford Abreu, the White Sox shed about $40 million from their payroll, including trading right-hander Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox and sending outfielder Alex Rios to the Texas Rangers. Konerko made $13.5 million this season while pitcher Gavin Floyd earned $9.5 million in the final year of his contract. The White Sox, who were last in the American League in runs scored, are trying to add power to their lineup. In addition to the right-handed hitting Abreu, Chicago also got outfielder Avisail Garcia in the Peavy trade, which should boost the middle of the order. Several teams were interested in Abreu, including the Rangers, Red Sox, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants.
