    Houston Chronicle Sports Goes Bleacher Report

    The Houston Chronicle sports page is a sad shadow of what it used to be. Tons of talented writers have been laid off the past several years, or they have departed on their own because they just couldn't take it anymore. Many of the reporters left are having to double up on beats, like Joseph Duarte ... More >>

    Pop Rocks: Pocket Full Of Kryptonite

    Lindsay Lohan's in my next movie? Just leave the bottle.​I'd done a decent job putting the fact they're rebooting the Superman franchise *again* next year out of my mind, that is until a flurry of recent Man of Steel-related news items popped up in the last week or so. "Wait," you're saying, ... More >>

And since it's Thanksgiving, I thought I would give a list of sports things for which I'm thankful, as well as listing a few of the turkeys of the year. So...1. I'm thankful for the MLB Network.

    Pop Rocks: Dear John...Cusack

    ​You used to be cool, John Cusack.We first noticed it in the 1980s, when "cool" didn't have a lot of meaning. People used the word in connection with Jan Hammer, the Go-Bots, and Kirk Cameron, which should give you an idea how lost we really were. But somehow you dodged the pitfalls of The Bre ... More >>

    How Depressed Do You Have to be to Want To See Nights in Rodanthe?

    Okay, so I’m not saying that my marriage is the world’s greatest or anything. Mr. Pop Rocks and I have our bitter moments, our mean-spirited spats, our drunken fist fights.

    Miss Pop Rocks: Lloyd Dobler, How Could You?

    Let me say right up front that on a conscious level Miss Pop Rocks fully understands that John Cusack is not, in fact, Lloyd Dobler, star of the great 80s film Say Anything. Miss Pop Rocks knows that Lloyd Dobler is a fictional character, and that there is really probably no real boy out there who ... More >>
