Cowboy Up! Mike ("I'm a Man!") Gundy Scores Big

We don't do a lot of sports on this site, but we couldn't help but notice a story in the Tulsa World yesterday, one that says far too much about priorities in the Sooner state.

The headline was straightforward: "Gundy's contract tops $29 million." 

That's right, Cowboy fans, the coach is raking in the dollars in a new eight-year contract. It's good work if you can get it, and, to be fair, Gundy has proven to be a winning coach.

But given the slash-and-burn budget cutting of the state's GOP leadership, it's more than a little ironic that a football coach can cash in while other state priorities such as public safety, education and health get cut. We don't need no stinkin' state services for—dare we say it!—the sick, the infirm, the poor.

Oh well, at least we're all clear on the state's priorities. Go Cowboys!
