2014 Winter Olympics – Texas connection

Posted February 5, 2014 in The Latest

As we scrolled through the list of events in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, we wondered if there were any Texans competing for the United States in Sochi. Thanks to the Dallas Morning News for identifying the fine athletes who hail from the Lone Star State.  Here are the ones to follow the next couple of weeks:

Jordan Malone – short track speedskating

Jonathan Garcia – short track speedskating

Johnny Quinn – bobsled

Justin Olsen – bobsled

Katie Uhlaender – skeleton

There are also three players from the Dallas Stars who will compete in hockey for their home counties – Jamie Benn (Canada), Kari Lehtonen (Finland), and Valeri Nichushkin (Russia).




Super Bowl Trivia

Posted January 29, 2014 in The Latest

Here’s some Super Bowl trivia involving teams from Texas:

  • The Dallas Cowboys are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for most appearances – eight – in the game
  • Although the Dallas Cowboys have won five Super Bowls, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won six
  • The Houston Texans are one of four teams who have never appeared in a Super Bowl
  • The Dallas Cowboys have more MVPs that any other team with seven players who have headed to Disneyland after the game
  • 2017 will mark the third time the Super Bowl will be held in Houston and the second Super Bowl played in Reliant Stadium, the other’s being 1974’s Super Bowl VIII and Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004.  Super Bowl XLV was held in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium in 2011.

Our prediction for this year’s game – Broncos by 6.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Every Year, The President Pardons A Turkey

White House myth-makers (those scoundrels!) have claimed that President Harry S. Truman began this holiday tradition after notably receiving a turkey, but it wasn’t until the first Thanksgiving of President George H.W. Bush in 1989 that a turkey was officially pardoned for the first time. From 2005 to 2010, the turkeys were then flown to Disneyland after the ceremony, where they serve as grand marshals of the theme park’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Once that was over, they retired over at Frontierland. Nowadays the turkeys have been hanging out in Mount Vernon, which is George Washington’s Northern Virginia home.
