• Verne Lundquist

    I'm not a golfer, nor am I particularly a golf fan, but I grew up with Verne on the local Dallas ABC station. What a pro!

  • Willie's the One
    To no one's surprise, Willie Nelson wins Texas Monthly's "Celebrity Texans" bracket. And, in previous rounds, with very few exceptions, the Texan who should have advanced, did. A Final 4 of Willie, Nolan Ryan, Kelly Clarkson, and Matthew McConaughey is just about right.

    Jesus, my brother,  
    Jesus, my maker,  
    Today, you paid my bills.   
    What can I do, but fall on my face,  
    And thank you for your grace?  
    Jesus, my Lord.
