    J.P., Paul, Mitch, and Josh each grew up in small-town Texas. The topic comes about because J.P. recently made a move (2:50) away from a smaller Texas town and it's been tough at times. What percentage of Texans actually live in small towns? (5:30) Each of the guys talk about their most recent life in small towns and the benefits of it. Mitch gets a slice of both outside of DFW (10:50). J.P. contends that when it comes down to it small town life is the way to go (13:00). But wait a minute. What exactly is a small town? A college definitely makes a difference in small town life. (15:00) However you define it there's nothing wrong with wanting to get out. (18:15) As you get older you realize you don't have to get away, but it is a mindset.  What are the best small towns in Texas (22:20)? J.P. and the guys share their favorite small towns and where he wants to retire (32:00).  And one bogus website dares to list the worst places to live in Texas and the guys list a few contenders (35:00). Paul's time in West Texas was one to remember (40:40).  J.P. winds down the show with his XXL Stetson that Josh despises (43:00) before he shares yet another awkward story (45:15) around a recent trip to a Rangers game.  'The Texas Porch' is available on Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher, Tune-in, I-Heart and all major podcast outlets.

    Part 2 of Vacation Talk focuses on the better half of the The Texas Porch couple! The Heaths ventured outside the state line for a trip to Disney World (2:45) and it was all thanks to our great vacation planner - Believe Vacations By Kelly. But before getting out of the driveway Lisa had an encounter with an aggressive insect (5:50).  On the way during a stop in Louisiana (7:00) Lisa and J.P. were practically in the middle of an episode of Cops at a gas station. The hotel J.P. picked left a lot to be desired (13:15) but it wasn't all bad because of the amazing coffee shop right across the street. J.P.'s been chasing the cold brew dragon ever since (15:15). Unfortunately all of the Buccee's outside Texas aren't like the ones back home (17:00). They called an audible to also go to Universal Studios the day before (20:50).  Overall it was great because Lisa got to scratch her Harry Potter itch. They finally make it to Disney World (27:30) and recap their Animal Kingdom experience. The mask police were on patrol, but overall it was their favorite park because of the safari.  On day two (33:20) they trekked to Magic Kingdom for their Be Our Guest dinner and spins on the tea cups and Dumbo. J.P. went on Space Mountain and almost died. Hollywood Studios (39:45) lived up to the hype and then some with the Star Wars rides and Mickey and Minnie Mine Train. On the final day they experienced Epcot (44:30), which was great but it was so different from the other parks. The food was amazing and thank goodness because a fast food burger establishment was not fast and J.P. and the burger guy had an awkward exchange. (52:50) Not to be outdone Disney Springs also got some of the Heath's money a couple of nights. (56:30)  Oh yeah. The Heaths are MOVING! (59:15) Lisa has been near home all of her life and J.P. has been in Lufkin 19 years. But The Texas Porch will continue!

    Another organized grab-bag gab session with The Executive Committee discussing recent road trip stories involving Rangers baseball, cult recruitment, and when you get to meet your idol. But first (2:45) a nod to Mental Health Week from shake-voice J.P. talking about his late brother Collin.  They get back to yucks (9:55) as J.P. has a knack for getting a free item for an unexplained reason during some recent late night gas station trips.  Then, was J.P. scouted out by a cult? (16:00) They pay off with a story on a tease from a few shows ago. J.P. went to his first Rangers game at Globe Life Field with his dad and Josh (22:35) recently and they spend much of the rest of the time rehashing that trip. J.P. happened to meet his broadcast idol, Hall of Fame broadcaster for the Rangers Eric Nadel (31:00). And so there's really no masks huh? Totally fine with one of the guys. A drunk fan (40:30) had his run of their section because there weren’t any ushers to be found and there was no chance they'd confront him.

Then they get down to brass tax and look at an overview of the draft and what stood out from the eleven picks (4:55). Their linebacker corp is definitely going to have a new look along with the rest of the defense (8:00). The defense's job is to just not suck so bad next season (9:50) but why oh why do the Cowboys just not care about the character of their draft picks (10:55).  Micah Parsons and the Cowboys may have just lucked into the right situation (15:00).  Overall the off the field issues with these guys are just amazing (17:00). Why do the Cowboys always seem to find these guys for their roster? "Bossman Fat" aka Kelvin Joseph had some issues at LSU, but as a rapper he's not.... that... bad. (21:10). Josh Ball though? Wow. Why draft a guy with ELEVEN domestic incidents with his girlfriend??!!   (29:08) A Cowboys legend (?) calls it quits. They break down Sean Lee's retirement and what they'll miss most from him. Dak gives an update on how he's doing (33:30) and Kevin delivers some fake news about J.P., but then the podcast audience is introudced to a character from circa 2000 from the original porch in college, GRUMPY OLD MAN (37:40)!!

    J.P. and Josh gather to break down the significance of Baylor's 86-70 win over Gonzaga for the school's third basketball title, its first on the men's side. After a congrats to one of the good guys out there (3:30), Voice of the Bears John Morris, J.P. goes into what this win means for basketball in the state of Texas (4:47). Then he butchers a trivia question that Josh gets right, but then gets wrong (9:30). (12:20) And then to the game itself, Baylor jumped on Gonzaga from the get-go and it was not a game despite what sports Twitter and CBS was trying to tell everyone. They take a glance at the stat board (14:50) and wow oh wow were there some stats that jumped out. They dominated on the boards, the offensive boards, and from three. Baylor peaked at the exact right time (21:10) and left no doubt who the best team is, and then Josh, a typical Longhorn fan, somehow twists it back to UT. But wow does Baylor have something to hold over those 'horns now (23:45). Josh points out exactly how far Baylor has come (25:10) in the last 18 years. It's just an unbelievable transformation after the sanctions they served. It may not be the most remarkable rebuild ever like Jim Nantz claimed (28:20) on the broadcast, but then J.P. convinces himself that well it may be the most remarkable rebuild.  Is Baylor a basketball school now?!? (31:30) They discuss their thoughts on both sides of it, but admit football will always be king in Texas of course. Surely Scott Drew isn't leaving anytime soon (35:00) so Bears fans can get used to this high level of play.  To round it out the guys throw the third-rate taco joint under the bus again with a funny story (39:00).  And JOSH takes one last jab at Baylor's chances of having a movie made about them (41:50).

Josh and J.P. take turns breaking down their favorite teams while also busting each others baseballs a bit. 2:50 - Josh's biggest Astros storyline of the season is obviously fans taking their shots at them after the well documented cheating scandal. While J.P. couldn't care either way but knows they'll be wearing the black hat. 9:10 -  J.P.'s biggest Rangers storyline is LOSING! Get ready for it and bring it on, but with new GM Chris Young and so many guys at new spots don't expect any winning anytime soon. But find a few guys to build for the future. 13:45 - J.P. looks at the Rangers rotation and the minor league experiment with the back of their rotation.  18:00 - Josh talks about the Astros rotation with the shocking news that it's better than the Rangers! Greinke and company should keep them in contention.  22:10 - They discuss the Astros lineup with some new faces but Jose Altuve will be in the leadoff spot. And then the contentious Kyle Tucker debate gets tense.  27:50 - J.P. goes into the new many Rangers roles, but much of the time is spent with gleeful J.P. doing cartwheels about a particular punching Rangers second baseman that is thankfully no longer in Arlington. And despite audio proof saying otherwise Josh chides J.P. for a past bold claim. 39:45 - Globe Life Field is allowing 100% capacity but why? Totally speaking out of both sides of his mouth J.P. still can't wait to go to his first indoor Rangers games. And when will the guys actually go watch their teams duke it out for the Silver Boot?  46:30 - They go over win totals and projections for their two teams and J.P. actually predicts a better record for the Astros.

    HAAAPPPYYYYY TTEEXXASS INDEPENDENCE DDDAAYYYYYY!!!! Without that we may not be here so here’s a history refresher for ya: On this day in 1836, Texas became a republic. On March 1 delegates from the seventeen Mexican municipalities of Texas and the settlement of Pecan Point met at Washington-on-the-Brazos to consider independence from Mexico. George C. Childress presented a resolution calling for independence, and the chairman of the convention appointed Childress to head a committee of five to draft a declaration of independence. In the early morning hours of March 2, the convention voted unanimously to accept the resolution. After fifty-eight members signed the document, Texas became the Republic of Texas. The change remained to be demonstrated to Mexico. And all of this took place after Santa Anna entered Texas with 6,000 of his men.

Watt asked for his release and was granted that request. Gotta be the best player in franchise history right? For those of you that respond ‘Andre Johnson’, I totally respect it, but Andre Johnson didn’t win THREE player of the year awards on his side of the ball like Watt did. The impact he made after Harvey alone was enough to endear himself forever. $32 Million-plus raised when he was seeking 250,000.  Watt doesn't turn 32 until March so you’ve got to figure there’s AT LEAST two good years left in the tank.

    In a move that surprised no one Deshaun Watson formally asked for a trade. Gets his cake and can eat it too I suppose with the no-trade clause he has. No teams were released that he’d be so gracious to allow the Texans to trade him to, but the writing is obviously on the wall. No professional sportscast style sounder but I did hear Peter King on The Ticket in Dallas Thursday said he thinks Watson will be in Houston when the season starts. Big Pete siding with the Big Man! Check out our latest full pod. I outlined four or five reasons he won’t be traded. Rockets d up and beat the Trailblazers 104-101. Break ‘em up. It’s their fourth straight win. Christian Wood 22p-13r… They were down TWENTY in the first. Small sample size, but it’s the first time they’ve won when being down double digits. Twitter tells us (Tim McMahon specifically courtesy of podcast Josh) that Houston is 5-3 since the trade. Not hard to do that math. BUT in that time they have THE BEST defensive rating in the NBA. It’s not for nothing. Rox look for win number five in a row Saturday in the Big Easy….  Spurs host the Nuggets tonight… Mavs are in Utah for the second straight game. #5 Houston wins at Tulane 83-60. They get the w without Quentin Grimes. Cougars Cameron Tyson had 31 and NINE threes. UH has won seven straight…. SMU 67-65 win over visiting Memphis. Ponies would not trail after two Yor Anei FTs w/ 1:27 left. … Dr. James Naismith would’ve been proud (Maybe?) of TCU and Kansas last night. Remember he coached at Kansas.  It was 19-18 Horned Frogs at the half. They were playing for the first time in two weeks and it showed. No peach baskets in this one. Kansas won the pillow fight 59-51. …  CUSA basketball last night:  UTSA beats visiting UTEP 86-79. Jhivan Jackson 32 in the win. Guy can play. Today! They run it back. Rice and North Texas were postponed yesterday to today at 2pm. Break up the Dallas Stars! 4-0-0. Jake Oettinger 20 saves in his first career win between the pipes. Stars beat up the Red Wings again 7-3. 7 guys with the goals and 12 different players have scored goals through the first 4 games.  'The Texas Porch' is available on Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher, Tune-in, I-Heart and all major podcast outlets.

Culley was the assist head coach and passing game coordinator at Baltimore. He is 65. That’s the oldest first-time coach in NFL history. Culley graduated from Vanderbilt in 1978 where he was one of the first black QBs in the SEC. Gauging by the Texans twitter reaction it’s a curious hire to say the least and it may back up that a lot stayed away from the gig the more vocal Deshaun Watson got about wanting to be moved. .

    Rockets beat the Wizards 107-88. First time the Rockets have won three straight. Not ever. That would be weird. John Wall 24 against his former team. Russell Westbrook 19 points and 11 rebounds against his former team. See what I did there? They were traded for each other before the season started. And that led to a little jaw-jacking. They each got teed up for yapping at each other. Victor Oladipo and Eric Gordon added 20 points apiece. Boogie Cousins 19 and 11. Rockets had their most healthy lineup of the season. They’re still missing Christian Wood with a sprained right ankle. Houston hosts Portlant Thursday night before a four-game road trip.  A&M drops another one on the hardwood. This time to LSU 78-66. Ags went almost the last 9 minutes without scoring. They were led by Jay Jay Chandler’s 21 off the bench. 17 for Savion Flagg. One positive is they only turned it over 8 times. It had recently been a huge reason behind their slide down the standings. They’ve now lost five of six. They’ll face Kansas St. coming up Saturday in the B12-SEC Challenge….. Texas falls late to OU 80-79. Longhorns had a couple cracks at late shots and then couldn’t complete a full length of the court pass for one more attempt at a game-winner.

Pete Kwiatkowski has agreed to come to the 40 acres to head a once-proud defense. This according to the Football Brainiacs. Kwiatkowski’s time with the Huskies was not at the same time as Sarkisian when he was head coach. Kwiatkoswki was DC under Chris Petersen at Boise State before going to the northwest the last 7 seasons. All 7 seasons they’ve led the Pac-12 in yards per play. He’s coached 16 NFL draft picks, 10 in the first two rounds the last 6 seasons for what it’s worth.  Houston Cougars are going to promote Doug Belk as DC. He was the co-DC with Joe Cauthen, who was let go tuesday. Shoutout to to Cauthen, old DC when I was at A&M-Commerce in school. You can see the timing. Belk will continue to coach safeties and retain the title of associate head coach.

    Play Episode Listen Later Jan 15, 2021 62:21

    After a quick reconnection and sharing some sips (2:30) Kevin introduces Mitch, Paul, and J.P. to his pups. (3:00) The guys talk about their Christmas gifts of note. Mitch bought himself a new truck for Christmas and gives us a quick lesson on his former cars. Paul got some Dad Jeans and J.P. has audio proof of his gift (7:00) and of course Mitch makes his second Toobin reference of the season.  (9:00) J.P. couldn’t pull the trigger at the store on a middle-aged item of choice but gets some advice from the follicly challenged guys on the show. Then a story (19:45) about one of the only times Mitch was actually mad at him.  They discuss their Texas New Year’s Resolutions, (24:00) and agree that what they want to do most is getting to the Hill Country and seeing some live music wherever it is.  A member of the crew has a birthday coming up (34:00) and after some talk from old Mazzio’s Pizza days they kick around his topic of choice (37:30). It gets a little deep for a little bit as they discuss the best and worst things about getting older. The first This Week in Texas Sports and History (48:45) features the birth of Fort Hood and the time someone broke wind in their junior high Texas history class and it cleared the room. And there’s also two great Cowboys anniversaries, and a note on the life of the great Texan Barbara Jordan.
