WHITT'S END: 10.30.13

      Whether you're at the end of your coffee, your day, your week or even your rope, welcome to Whitt's End:

   *I've faced this reality already. That on June 12, 2011 my Mavericks might have peaked, never to be that good again. That Sunday night in Miami Jason Terry pumped in 27 points, Dirk Nowitzki was crowned NBA Finals MVP and Don Carter/Mark Cuban lifted the Larry O'Brien trophy. Since then? Splat. The Mavs haven't won a playoff game since. Last year they missed the postseason for the first time since 2000. So I can either re-watch Game 6 against the Heat, or I can stubbornly, naively believe that Dirk will get necessary help this season from newcomers Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Jose Calderon when they tip-off the 2014 season tonight against the Atlanta Hawks at AAC. I'll be watching, and I think this is a playoff team. But I know exactly where the dusty DVD is. Just in case.

   *Was watching Heat-Bulls last night when Saturday Night Live did this promo skit featuring an online dating service specifically catering to African-Americans and ... Wait, BlackPeopleMeet.com is real? What. The. What?! Like you, I'm curious about WhitePeopleMeet.com. But no thanks, I fear an online KKK rally.

   *In Jason Garrett's three-year tenure the Cowboys have lost 23 regular-season games. Sadly, it was pretty easy to find 10 heart-breakers among the bunch. Sunday's kick-to-the-crotch in Detroit is high on the list, which you can peruse over at NBC 5's Blue Star Blog. Cowboys are the most maddening team in the NFL. Their losses this year? By 1. By 1. By 3 on the game's final play. And by 9, in a game they led by 11. Grumble.

   *As I've said before I'm not a "gamer," but NBA 2K14 looks friggin' awesome. Not hard to fathom how some folks would be tricked into thinking they're watching an actual game at first glance.

   *I'm thinking this is totally staged and fake. No way the audio is that clear if the "victim" wasn't miked up. The video camera just happened to be rolling on a totally boring ass street when the truck magically appeared. And that lady sure is calm and collected to be presented with such a supposedly life-threatening scene. Alas, it is Humpday White Truck Wednesday, so ... enjoy? This, unfortunately, is real: Burglars steal a bunch of stuff from a farm in a ... White Truck.

   *The Mavs' GM that was hired August 1 has already resigned before November 1. Gersson Rosas, I didn't even get the chance to learn how to spell your name. Like it or not, Donnie Nelson still wields plenty of power in Dallas' front office.

   *Despite my best efforts, I'm hating LeBron James less as a person and appreciating him more as a basketball player a little more each game.

   *Hot.

   *Not.

  4. Speaking of lack of knowledge about the English language...

    Halloween is an "eve" itself...All Hallow's Eve. Saying "Happy Halloween Eve" is like saying "Happy New Year's Eve Eve."

    1. Yeah, All Hallow's Eve. But shouldn't there be a pre-party?

    1. Sybil made the list. If she would have added herself, you'd be bitching about her being on the list.

  8. What's up with the Steelers pics, Sybil?

  9. Good Lord. Instead of calling this the DFWSportatorium blog, how about one of the following:

    1. His/Hers Blog

    2. Just Hers Blog

    3. The Mantel (where Richie's balls are now kept) Blog

    4. SSZ (Sybil Summers Zone) Blog

    5. Your Honor I Swear I Had This Before I Married Her Blog

    6. Sports? We Don't Need No Stinking Sports Blog

    and finally, lucky number

    7. I Used to Love Her, but I Had to Kill Her Blog

    Just a small naming rights fee and a modest monthly royalty is all I ask if you adopt one.

    Later! (poof)

  10. Hate to admit it, but I'm right there with you on LeBron. Never thought I'd see the day. I guess that's what handling success well will do for a guy.
