The Sons Of History
Forget "Forget The Alamo"! Discussing the False Rewriting of Texas History with Denton Florian

Denton Florian is one of the foremost experts on Sam Houston, the great Texas general, president, and governor (in that order); and Texas history in general. He was the executive producer of the five-time EMMY winning documentary "Sam Houston: American Statesman, Soldier, and Pioneer." Denton joined the podcast to discuss how the new book "Forget The Alamo" attempts to do as "The 1619 Project" did (a conversation we had with Dr. Mary Grabar two episodes prior) and reframe (or often rewrite) history through the lens of slavery and race. While agenda-driven journalists work to rewrite history in hopes that you will forget obvious historical facts about America and now Texas, we think this is a conversation you'll definitely remember.

The legend of the battle of the Alamo is not only an intrinsic part of Texas lore but is enshrined in the American imagination—a band of fiery rebels fighting for independence who die as martyrs in the cause of liberty. But a new book, “Forget the Alamo!” argues that the Alamo myth is just that—an allegory that tells us what we want to believe about the Alamo, but not what actually happened.  Written by Bryan Burrough, Chris Tomlinson, and Jason Stanford, “Forget the Alamo!” has not been without its critics. A recent event at the Bullock Texas State History Museum was cancelled hours beforehand by Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, who called it a “fact-free rewriting of Texas history.”  Guest host LBJ Library Director Mark Lawrence talks to two of the book's authors—Bryan Burrough and Chris Tomlinson—about what history really says about the Battle of the Alamo and why the myth that so many want to preserve has endured so long.

"While in the army from 1976 to 1978, I was assigned a non-shooting position at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. It was 250 miles from my home to an international shooting range. I was able to actually shoot on a range only 6 days during those 2 years, 3 days to win the Nationals in 1977 and 3 days to win again in 1978. Though I could not actually go to the range, I did continue training. Five times a week after my family had turned in for the night I simulated shooting for 2 to 4 hours in a spare bedroom, a technique called dry firing.

If you missed the release of Part I last week then be sure to give it a listen to get up to speed with my time in Houston with Doug Harris. Let's jump back into it. LAKEWOOD CHURCH  Doug and I continue our adventures through the city in Doug's car, and he takes me to a popular site in the city: Lakewood Church. The building was previously called the Summit (subsequently changed to Compact Center before becoming Lakewood Church), a 17,000-seater venue that used to be the home ground for the Houston Rockets NBA team. It is also where Doug saw ZZ Top and Aerosmith perform live a few years prior, but now it is a very large place for worship. Lakewood Church and Joel Osteen are on all the social media platforms: there's an app, a podcast, and a very slick website where they also live stream that includes a webshop with books from Joel and his wife Victoria, and his mother Dodie. HOLY FATHER AND HIS SON The church was founded by Joel's father, Paster John Osteen, and Joel worked in the background as a TV producer up until his father passed away. When that happened, he stepped up and assumed the role of Senior Pastor at Lakewood Church.  I went to their website and saw a video from a sermon a few weeks ago. It does not look or sound like a regular church. As Doug said, it's an arena with 17,000 seats that starts with a band on stage with lights and a cheering audience. The production itself is very professional. It's like watching X-Factor or a big award show with several camera angles. Then Joel and his wife take the stage. With 17,000 people in the church arena and I don't know how many listening on Sirius XM satellite radio in North America, and a global audience watching the live stream, it's certainly not your average church experience. It is very different from what I grew up with in Denmark, where there would be just a handful of people in my local church on a regular Sunday. TRADITIONAL TEXAS BBQ Doug then took me to one of his favourite places for lunch, Charlies BBQ, where I got to taste some real Texan barbecue. He's a regular there and he introduces me to some of the staff, making me feel welcome and special. We sat down at the grill and the guy behind it who happens to be the owner, Fote Demires, recommended I try the brisket and sausage as they are the most popular choices (apart from the ribs of course). He tells me that brisket is a staple in Texas, and if you head further east, they enjoy pulled pork. After consuming a big plate of various tasty BBQ flavours, I carry on my chat with Fote. “We've been in the BBQ business since before my time — some 60 years. As part of the second generation, I have been involved in operations for 30 years, taking over from my parents. My parents came from Greece and decided to open a BBQ shop because, well, it's Texas. We've infused a bit of our Greece culture into the menu over the years, we offer gyros and make our own tzatziki.” After a delicious lunch, Doug and I get back in the car and continue our Houston road trip adventure. REMEMBER THE ALAMO Doug tells me that Houston was named after Sam Houston, the first president of Texas and general of the Texas army. Texas used to be an independent republic that was once under the dominance of Mexico. After declaring independence from Mexico, the Mexican government sent a large army led by Antonio López de Santa Anna to attack Texas in bitter retaliation.  Despite Santa Anna being an accomplished military tactician, he underestimated the strength of the Texan army led by Colonel William Barret Travis, who called for volunteers to assist his men in warding off the Mexican army's attacks. Famous American frontiersman and folk hero Davy Crockett joined the cause where he and his volunteers took the famous stand at the Battle of the Alamo — a 13-day siege where they battled against thousands of Mexican soldiers in 1836 in San Antonio, Texas,  “The critical purpose of the Battle of the Alamo was that it gave Sam Houston time to train his Texan troops by the Gulf of Mexico to launch a surprise attack on Antonio López de Santa Anna's men. One afternoon while the Mexican army was taking a siesta, Houston's men surprise-attacked and took the Mexican soldiers as prisoners. Apparently, de Santa Anna removed his general's uniform as to not be identified by the Texas army, but his cover was blown when one of his men called him ‘generalissimo'”.  The story with Davy Crockett and the Alamo is something I'll dive more into when I visit San Antonio in a couple of weeks. It's fascinating so stay tuned. YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS As folklore has it, Antonio López de Santa Anna had a mixed-heritage concubine who was with him during this time. Due to her mixed-heritage, she had what locals called ‘yellow skin' and she is the inspiration for the famous folk song The Yellow Rose of Texas.  DOUG THE MUSIC MAN And speaking of music, Doug is the kind of guy who always goes around with music in his head, and he is always humming and singing. I never noticed it before my visit, but as we're leaving his office he was humming in the elevator and singing while walking out to his car.  And he doesn't seem to mind that there are people around him. He's not shy at all and kept singing when we met other people in the freight elevator (great acoustics in there by the way) while maybe adding a “howya doin'?” between the verse and the chorus. He really spreads joy and smiles around him all the time. Doug takes me to yet another impressive place, named after the city's founder, the Sam Houston Race Park. It's a famous horse racing track that also has a large paddock that plays host to music concerts throughout the year. It's a prominent tourist attraction in Houston. Many big country music stars have performed here. Doug strikes me more of a classic rock fan than a country music fan. To this he responded: “Well, I'm a rocker — I was raised in the 60s and 70s on The Beatles, The Yardbirds, and Jimi Hendrix. Plus I made my bones in rock radio. I had a garage band back in those days and our bass player was a little-known actor called Dennis Quaid. But even though I'm a rocker, it would be silly not to enjoy some great songs from other genres and performers. And country music has some classic performers, like Willie Nelson and Bob Wills. So, I like all music because I'm a student of human nature. But I'm not a huge hip-hop fan. If I can sing along to it on the radio, then I enjoy it.” HOMEWOOD SUITS BY HILTON Doug found a hotel for me and was able to strike a deal with them for a better rate. It's a Homewood Suites by Hilton, and it's very artistic with a big mural on the wall behind the pool and a lot of art in the lobby. I meet Bruce from the hotel and wants him to tell me more about the place. It's in a part of the city that is more a corporate area with a lot of big companies and to me, it's not the obvious location for a hotel. “There was a need for a Hilton in this part of town, and in the short period of time that we have been open, we have seen the true value of our presence in this area. We are definitely more of a corporate-focused hotel. Our owners have tried to install more of a boutique flavour through the artwork they have installed. All of the art that you see on the walls is done by Mr. D of Houston, known as ‘Houston's largest muralist', who also did the hotel's exterior murals.”  Bruce was kind enough to show me around the 125-room hotel, including the outdoor kitchen, firepit, and another Mr. D mural hand-painted specifically for selfies. He showed me to my suite which was beautiful and very large.  MORE ADVENTURES WITH DOUG I got to hang out with Doug some more the next day. We went to an art gallery opening, and I followed his recommendation to visit the National Museum of Funeral History where I got to learn about caskets and coffins, hearses through history, plus the funerals of Presidents, Popes, and celebrities. They also had a gift shop selling caps, mugs, t-shirts, and magnets saying something like: “Any day above ground is a good one”. A really weird and kinda morbid place. But interesting… NEXT STOP: LOCKHART I'm so glad I got to spend some time with my old friend Doug and can't wait to see him again soon somewhere in the world. Maybe we'll share a room again, purely in the “interest of camaraderie and economics”. That's it from Houston. Now I'm heading back to Austin and returning the cool convertible sports car to Gary, and then heading a bit south of the city to the little town called Lockhart, where I'm housesitting. Well, it's actually not in Lockhart but in a nice little house in the countryside – with dangerous snakes in the grass, and next to a noisy rooster farm with deaf owners. My name is Palle Bo, and I got to keep moving. See you.

Howdy igen fra Houston, Texas Velkommen til den anden halvdel af min dag med Doug Harris – en stolt Houstonian og min gamle ven, som viser mig rundt i sin hjemby. Hvis du endnu ikke har hørt den første halvdel, burde du måske gøre det først, så du er med på, hvad der sker. Gør det bare nu, jeg venter her. Okay…? Velkommen tilbage, lad os springe ud i det. LAKEWOOD CHURCH  Doug og jeg fortsætter vores eventyr i Dougs bil, og vi kommer forbi et populært og anderledes sted i byen: Lakewood Church. Bygningen blev tidligere kaldt The Summit og senere som Compact Center – inden den skiftede navn til Lakewood Church. Det er et sted med plads til 17.000 mennesker, og husede også tidligere NBA-basketball, når Houston Rockets var i kamp. Doug fortæller mig, at han også har været til flere koncerter i denne bygning. Blandt andre har ZZ Top og Aerosmith fået taget til at lette. Men nu er det en kirke. Dog en meget stor kirke, der er anderledes end de fleste. Den hedder Lakewood Church og både kirken og den unge præst, Joel Osteen er til stede på de fleste sociale medier. De har også en app, en podcast og en meget professionel hjemmeside, hvor de både har live-stream og en webshop med masser af bøger fra Joel, hans hustru, Victorie og hans mor Dodie Osteen. HELLIGE FADER OG HANS SØN Kirken blev grundlagt af Joels far, Pastor John Osteen, og mens han kørte den, arbejdede Joel i baggrunden som TV-producer. Da faderen døde overtog Joel ansvaret som Senior Pastor i Lakewood Churck. Jeg tog et kig på deres hjemmeside og så en video fra en gudstjeneste for et par uger siden. Set hverken ligner eller ser ud som en almindelig gudstjeneste i en almindelig kirke. Som Doug fortalte mig, så er det en kæmpe arena med 17.000 sæder og det hele starter med et band på scenen med lys og et hujende publikum. Selve Tv-produktionen er også meget professionel med mange kameravinkler. Det minder mig mere om en X-Factor finale i BOXEN. Da musikken klinger ud og publikum er færdig med at klappe træder Joel og Victorie ind på scenen med hvert sit følgespot – og starter gudstjenesten. En noget anden oplevelse end hvad man ser i en lokal landsbykirke i Danmark en typisk søndag med fem forkølede mennesker. TRADITIONAL TEXAS BBQ Doug tager mig med videre til sin yndlings-frokost-restaurant, Charlies BBQ, så jeg kan smage noget rigtig Texas barbecue. Man mærker straks, at han har været her mange gange, for han hilser varmt på personalet og introducerer mig, så jeg føler mig både velkommen og lidt speciel. Vi går op til grillen og måder ejeren, Fote Demires, som gik i gang med at give mig gode råd om, hvad jeg skulle vælge: ”Du skal absolut prøve vores brisket og grillpølserne er også meget populære. Og spareribs naturligvis.” Jeg følger hans råd, og efter at have konsumeret en kæmpe tallerken med Houston kød bevæger jeg mig tilbage for at tale mere med Fote. ”Vi har været i BBQ-branchen siden før min tid – i omkring 60 år. Som en anden-generations-griller har jeg været i barbecue-branchen i 30 år, siden jeg overtog den fra mine forældre. De immigrerede hertil fra Grækenland, og besluttede sig for at åbne en BBQ-restaurant fordi… ja, det er jo Texas. Hen over årene har vi tilføjet en smule græsk madkultur og tilbyder nu også både gyros og tzatziki”. Efter en fantastisk frokost (med propfyldte maver), kravlede vi tilbage i bilen og fortsatte vores køretur gennem Houston. HUSK THE ALAMO Doug fortæller mig, at Houston er opkaldt efter Texas' første præsident og general, Sam Houston. På et tidspunkt var Texas under mexicansk styre og siden blev det en selvstændig republik. Efter de erklærede sig uafhængige sendt den mexicanske regering en stor hær under ledelse af Antonio López de Santa Anna til at angribe Texas. Men den mexicanske general havde undervurderet hvor stærk Texas' hær var. Den blev ledet af William Barret Travis, som havde samlet en flok frivillige til at hjælpe ham med at holde mexicanerne væk. En af disse frivillige var en folkehelt ved navn Davy Crockett. De holdt skansen ved Slaget ved Alamo i 13 dage mod tusinder af mexicanske soldater i San Antonio i 1836. Doug fortæller videre: ”Det store formål med Slaget ved Alamo var at det gav Sam Houston tid til at træne sine tropper ved den Mexicanske Golf, og iværksætte et overraskelsesangreb på Antonio López de Santa Annas mænd. En eftermiddag mens den mexicanske hær holdt siesta og tog dem alle som fanger. Santa Anna nåede at skifte til en almindelig uniform, så han ikke skulle blive genkendt af de texanske soldater, men blev afsløret da en af hans egne folk tiltalte ham som ‘generalissimo'”.  Hele historien om Davi Crockett og slaget ved Alamo er noget, vi dykker mere ned i, når jeg besøger San Antonio om et par uger. Det er meget fascinerende så bliv her på kanalen. TEXAS GULE ROSE Som det er med et hvert godt folkesagn, så havde Antonio López de Santa Anna på dette tidspunkt, en elskerinde af blandet herkomst. På grund hendes (som de lokale kaldte det) “gule hud” var hun inspiration til den kendte folkesang ”Texas' Gule Rose”. MUSIKKEN I DOUG Og apropos musik, så er Doug den slags person, der konstant går rundt med en melodi i hovedet, og han nynner eller synger konstant. Det er ikke noget, jeg har lagt mærke til før, når jeg har mødt ham rundt omkring i verden, men her (på hans hjemmebane) er det helt tydeligt. Da vi forlod kontoret, nynnede han, i elevatoren sang han, og det fortsatte, da vi gik ud til hans bil. Og det lade ikke til at det på virker ham, at der er folk, der hører ham. For eksempel, da vi mødte personer i elevatoren, lavede han blot en lille pause mellem verset og omkvædet og fik plads til et hurtigt ”howya doin'?”. Han er en mand, der konstant spreder glæde og smil omkring sig. Doug tager mig med til endnu et imponerende sted, der er opkaldt efter byens grundlægger. Den berømte væddeløbsbane, Sam Houston Race Park er vært for mange hestevæddeløb, men også et stort koncertsted, og en prominent turistattraktion i Houston. Mange countrystjerner optræder her. Doug slår mig mere som en fan af 'classic rock' end country. Til det har han disse ord:  ”Jo, jeg er en rocker – jeg voksede op til The Beatles, The Yardbirds og Jimi Hendrix. Desuden tilbragte jeg mange af mine unge år på rock-radiostationer. Jeg havde endda engang et band i min garage, hvor vores bassist var den siden så kendte, Dennis Quaid. Men selvom jeg er en rocker, så vil det være dumt at frasige sig fantastiske sange i andre genre. Og country musikken har nogle helt fantastiske navne som Willie Nelson og Bob Wills. Så jeg vil sige, at jeg kan lide al slags musik. Jeg er dog ikke den helt store rap-fan. Men hvis jeg ka' synge med på det, når det spilles i radioen, ka' jeg li' det”. HOMEWOOD SUITS BY HILTON Doug har fundet et hotel til mig, og skaffet mig en super skarp pris. Det er et såkaldt Homewood Suites, som er en del af Hilton kæden. Det er meget kunstnerisk med smukke malerier i foyeren og et stort vægmaleri bagved poolen. Jeg møder Bruce fra hotellet og beder ham fortælle mere om stedet. Jeg synes, at det er interessant, at det ligger i en del af byen med mange kontorbygninger – og for mig måske ikke er det mest indlysende sted til et hotel. ”Både og… Hilton havde brug for et hotel i denne del af byen, og i den korte tid, vi har været åbne, har det vist sig at være en god beslutning. Vi er bestemt mere et hotel for forretningsrejsende. Vores ejere har bestræbt sig på at skabe et sted med en følelse af et boutique-hotel og har investeret en masse i kunst. Al den kunst du ser på væggene, er af en lokal kunstner, der kalder sig Mr. D. Han er kendt som Houstons største væg-kunstner, og han har også skabt det store vægmaleri, du ser bag ved poolen”. Bruce viste mig også rundt i det i resten af hotellet, der har 125 værelser og et udendørs-køkken og bålplads. Og endnu et stort håndmalet Mr. D vægmaleri, der er som skabt til at tage selfies ved. Og så viste han mig min suite, som var både smuk og meget rummelig. FLERE OPLEVELSER MED MIN VEN DOUG Jeg kom til at hænge ud en dag mere med Doug. Han tog mig blandt andet med til fernisering på en kunstudstilling – og på hans opfordring besøgte jeg et bizart sted: the National Museum of Funeral History. Her kom jeg til at lære en masse om kister og begravelsesoptog gennem tiden, plus en masse om berømte begravelser. De har også en souvenirbutik, hvor de sælger kasketter, kaffekopper, t-shirts og køleskabsmagneter, hvor der står ting som ”en dag over jorden er en god dag”. I sandhed et underligt og lettere morbidt sted. Men interessant og unikt for Houston. NÆSTE STOP: LOCKHART Jeg er glad for, at jeg tog mig tid til at besøge min gamle ven, og præsentere dig for den store texaner. Jeg glæder mig til at vore veje krydser hinanden igen, et eller andet sted på kloden. Og det var det hele fra Houston. Nu skal jeg tilbage til Austin for at aflevere den lækre lille sorte sportsvogn til Gary, og så videre til Lockhart, en mindre by omkring 50 km syd for Austin. Her skal jeg ”house-sitte” – altså passe hus og i dette tilfælde katte og planter. Det er faktisk ikke engang i selve Lockhart, men lidt længere ude på landet. Det er et sted med slanger i græsset og en gård med hundredevis af haner. Den er meget larmende, men ægteparret, der ejer den er ligeglade, da de begge er døve. Mit navn er Palle Bo, og jeg skal videre. Vi ses.

Welcome back to Houston, Texas.  After leaving my new friends Jeanie and Big Ed in their trailer park in Houston, I jumped back into my sexy hired sports car to see an old friend of mine, Doug Harris. We made plans to meet at his office.  I got to know Doug as a Broadcast Marketing Consultant for his company Creative Animal. For the past 20 years, he has also been running Noisemaker Communications. Here, he and his team work with businesses that want to make some noise and grab some attention. Doug is known for his crazy, creative, noise-making ideas. For instance, when one of the Star Wars films was about to premiere, he came up with the idea to offer $1,000 to the first listener that would legally change their name to Obi-Wan Kenobe. That got them some attention for his client's radio station, and the idea was later copied by stations all over. And I remember him telling me about his all-time favourite publicity stunt that never saw the light of day as the client got cold feet. He represented an electric razor company and pitched the idea of taking out a full-page ad in the newspaper offering Fidel Castro $1 million to shave his beard with their electric razor. The client was worried – what if the leader of communist Cuba actually took a capitalist bribe to shave his famous beard? It's ideas like these that pop up in the mind of this man that you're about to meet. So, strap in… MEETING AN OLD FRIEND IN HOUSTON, TEXAS "Houston is a cruel, crazy town on a filthy river in East Texas with no zoning laws and a culture of sex, money and violence. It's a shabby, sprawling metropolis ruled by brazen women, crooked cops and super-rich pansexual cowboys who live by the code of the West – which can mean just about anything you need it to mean, in a pinch." These are words by famous American journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson. After receiving a warm and friendly welcome from my old friend, we jumped into his car and immediately began reminiscing. Doug and I met at a NAB radio event in London years ago and ended up sharing a hotel room "purely in the interest of camaraderie and economics". Our paths again crossed in Mumbai a few years later when the Indian government had just launched independent radio. We've certainly been to some interesting places together. And here we are together again in Doug's hometown of Houston. Doug tells me a few interesting facts about Houston, such as it is home to one of the finest medical centres in the world, Texas Medical Center, which receives many patients from all over the world. Houston is also home to a fabulous theatre district, second only to New York City (when you calculate the number of seats). Additionally, Doug tells me that it is also home to the "greatest Mexican food and BBQ on the planet". Doug is super well-travelled and a man of the world. But he's also a true Houstonian. He loves his city and knows a lot about it. So, he's the perfect tour guide for me as we're driving on our way to an original Texas BBQ lunch at Doug's favourite restaurant, Charlie's BBQ. "This city is amazingly diverse. We have a huge Hispanic community and a growing Asian community, consisting of distinctly Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese communities who have found their home here because Houston is a really welcoming place. It is a warm mix of culture and people, and there is a lot of opportunity here. There's something about Houston – we do things bigger and better here." Doug tells me he wants to take me to visit Houston's famous National Museum of Funeral History and tells me some fascinating things about what to expect. He also plans to take me to the Art Car Museum because he wants me to tell the world the people in Houston don't "ride horses to work and there isn't primary sagebrush/tumbleweed floating across the streets." FACTS ABOUT HOUSTON, TEXAS No one is actually from here. If you ask most Houstonians, most of them are from another city, state, or country altogether. Houston has an underground pedestrian tunnel system. The tunnel is 20 feet below the ground and runs for seven miles, linking 95 city blocks. There are no zoning laws. You will see a sex shop next to a mansion that's right down the block from a school that sits alongside what seems to be a Buddhist temple. They don't really wear boots and hats because they're not really cowboys. The only exception is during rodeo season – when they put on the finest bolo ties, hats, boots, and buckles, they can find and totally pretend to be cowboys. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is one of the biggest rodeos in the world. This month-long rodeo attracts over 2.5 million attendees each year. And finally: don't bother doing your hair in August. Humidity wins —it always wins. A substantial portion of Houston's population is 'new arrivals'. In this tradition, Doug's family is originally from Greece. His father came over to Texas at the turn of the 20th century to work in his uncle's meatpacking plant.  "That's how things work here, this country was born from immigrants. My father managed to serve in the United States Army, after which he got into medical school, married a local gal, built up his medical practice, had two sons, and lived the American dream as it was in the 20th century. We'll see how that American dream turns out in the 21sr century". When I got to know Doug, he was always one of the speakers at radio conferences I attended, talking about being more creative. He spoke about how to spark creativity and nurture a creative environment in a boring workplace. And just one of the tricks he suggested was: bubbles.  I remember the European radio conference where we shared a room (in the spirit of camaraderie and economics). He was speaking to a room of 4-500 people, and everyone was blowing bubbles. They were all over this big conference room, and people were laughing and feeling creative. I don't know; there's just something about blowing bubbles that brings out the creative kid in us. He always notices when someone is pulling off a marketing stunt that is a bit out of the ordinary. While we're driving around Houston, he points out a billboard with a great idea. Doug excitedly tells me about a marketing campaign that a local furniture store is rolling out that basically offers people their money back on recently purchased mattresses if the local baseball team, the Houston Astros, win the World Series.  Our drive through the city sees us talking about a range of interesting topics relating to Houston. Although the Houston skyline isn't as typically picturesque as a European city, "I still love it here", Doug insists.  BARBERSHOP BAR Doug decided he needed a haircut, so we made a quick stop for his appointment. I took a seat at the bar to get a cup of coffee – yes, there is a bar inside the barbershop, and it's unlike any barbershop I've ever seen before. The Gents Place is a beautiful barbershop that you should absolutely visit if you need a haircut, a scalp massage, a shoeshine — or just want to get away and hang out with friendly people for a bit. On their website, they write 'A Great Haircut is Just the Beginning'. Check out this video to see how cool this place really is. Alissa from The Gents Place: "We sell an experience, not a haircut. People can hang out in either of our two lobbies, our Members Lounge, or our bar, and have a couple of drinks. We do haircuts, hand and foot repairs, eyebrow, nose and ear waxing, massages, everything really. Members come in and hang out before and after work. We've created a cool place to hang out,"  Check out this excerpt from their website: Enjoy a place where distinguished gentlemen gather for conversation and drinks while receiving luxury grooming services such as steamed towel treatments, neck and shoulder massages, and facial hair maintenance. With our men's grooming clubs, we strive to bring back the gentleman in all of us. Life is not an errand, nor should we treat it as such. When it prompts us to attend a task with regularity, we might as well attend to it while surrounded by like-minded gentlemen, complimentary top-shelf drinks, and curated advice. Such is the path to looking our best, feeling our best, and becoming our best. BUFFALO BAYOU After Doug's new trim, we headed to downtown Houston to visit Buffalo Bayou. This lovely recreational park used to be a large ditch where the famous Allan Brothers founded a city named after the hero of the Texas Republic, Sam Houston, in the mid-19th century.   The park has many running tracks and hiking trails, including the river where people can kayak and enjoy the outdoors in the middle of the city. Doug is the kind of person who gets into conversations with the strangers he meets. He's got this aura around him that says, "Hey, I'm a nice guy, talk to me", and it's not put on or fake — it's just who he is. Like, when we saw a dog in the street, Doug effortlessly made conversation with the dog and its owner as if it was the most natural thing in the world. Doug then offers a Master Class on how to establish rapport and get into a conversation with random strangers in the streets of Houston. Step 1: Greet the dog warmly with compliments. Step 2: Greet the owners by introducing me, saying that he's showing me around Houston. Step 3: Compliment handsome dog again. I'm pretty sure that Doug doesn't give this kind of thing a second thought, but I feel that this simple interaction sums up what kind of great and outgoing person he is. We get back into Doug's car and continue our way through the city as Doug tells me interesting things about almost everything we pass by — including The Heartbreak Hotel and an outdoor park that is air-conditioned. He loves telling people about Houston and showing them around because he wants people to come to visit. As you probably can sense, Doug is a man of many words, so I've got more from my drive with him around Houston in the next episode. My name is Palle Bo, and I gotta keep moving. See you.

Despite a bevy of injuries, departures for the NFL Draft, and a key starter leaving for the transfer portal, North Dakota State was one play away from advancing to this year's FCS semifinals. With 23 freshmen and sophomores on the two-deep depth chart, the Herd fell agonizingly short at Sam Houston, 24-20. “Our young guys are our depth. It’s been a good thing, there have been growing pains at times, but it will all payoff in the long run,” said NDSU coach Matt Entz following a 42-20 playoff win against Eastern Washington. Swany is joined by the Bison Report's Ross Uglem to recap this spring, and talk about an awfully good football team coming back with big things in store this fall.

These are the weeks we all remember why we love Dukes so much! We suck all the marrow out of JMU’s takedown of UND, the Valley’s rough week, and the CAA’s surge. Then we look ahead to the Dukes trying to complete the first half of a Texas Two-Step at Sam Houston this week. Oh yeah, JMU softball is basically Thanos at this point too!
