NEWScoop: A Day Ruined, Spartacus Found, Tricks of the Trade, Soul Mates Lost, and Much Touching

Well, Pop My Tires and Ruin My Day!
Anyone that’s even walked in Houston knows that level concrete is as rare as gold. Do you know what I’ve learned? Don’t ride bicycles, scooters, or in-line skates on sidewalks unless you have an affinity for face-plants. Don’t drive on Richmond or Shepherd on anything less than 44.1″ Quadruple Ply Tires.

Houston Holds the Remains of Spartacus
After nearly two thousand long years the skeletal remains of Rome’s greatest slave have finally been recovered. Revolutionaries everywhere can now cease to claim they are he who fought the Empire. Rome reached its height of power. It was conquered by Germanic tribes. Descendants of those tribes later colonized Texas. Fiction could not rival such a journeyed tail.

The Reality of Unemployment is a Trick
A television show featuring one a’ them Duke Boys, swaps large vehicle repairs owned by unemployed workers in return for the teaching of their specific trade. Bo Duke will host from the All Out Offroad truck shop in Richmond, Texas. ”Trick My What?” will debut Friday, October 7th on CMT. Visit MyFoxHouston for more on this story.

A Renior is Like a Soul Mate
A one million dollar painting was taken from a home in Houston. I know what you’re thinking and my accusations went there as well—Thomas Crown. ‘Fraid not. The painting is missing, as are its captors. However, authorities have consulted one who is familiar with losing overpriced works of art. Her advice, “look for a close friend.” Visit Abc13 for more on this story.

Close Physical Contact for Players and Fans Alike
Anyone starved for touch will be relieved that the pat down procedure at all Texans’ home games is intensifying. Say what? You can not only expect a stranger’s hands above your waist, but now at the hip and from feet to knees. “Best practices?” Crikey. A shot below the belt, you bet. Visit ABC13 for more on this story.
