I was running some errands in a northerly orientation today and heard that Cirque du Sirois was appearing at a Beazer Homes open house in a new subdivision in Frisco called Miramonte. I swung up that way and stopped by.
The model home they were broadcasting from (there were two) was packed. I've never seen a developer's open house so well-attended. It's amazing to me how hosts at remotes can seamlessly broadcast while people are making noise, milling around, gawking at them, yes, taking their picture. They were broadcasting from a breakfast nook.

I loved Cash's haiku on the DeAndre Jordan fiasco. If anyone remembers it or can get it from Cash, send it along.

Speaking of the fiasco, I have a question. A sincere question, I'm sure it has an answer, I just don't know what it is:
My recollection is that it was never a certainty that Jordan was going to sign with the Mavericks. They had to court the guy, and, from all accounts, did a really fine job. But they weren't the only team with an interest, and there was some chance that he would re-sign with the Clips. So there was a not-negligible chance that Jordan would never have made an oral commitment to join the Mavs.
But he did, and then reneged. Not a good thing, but: How did the Mavs change their position between his oral commitment and his reneging? That is, how is the Mavericks' position any different than if he had never made the oral commitment to begin with? Sure, the organization was embarrassed, but the sense of all the outrage about this is that the reneging itself grievously injured the Mavs. And unless the Mavs somehow changed their position between the oral commitment and the reneging -- I don't understand that reaction.
Anyway, it was fun to see Cirque in action as the Frisco land-hungry milled around noisily before them. That snap above cracks me up.
