NEWScoop: Naked in Kemah, Remembaa’ing the Alamo, Beck-a-Tex, Seaweeding Tourists and Brothers Behaving Poorly

Uni-Tri Careens in Kemah
A man was arrested on the Kemah Bridge on Wednesday afternoon for riding on his unicycle in the buff. Joseph Glynn Farley or Uni-Tri, in his defense, stated, “I liked the way it felt.” Kemah Police Chief Greg Rikard has this to say in reply, “Really don’t know what he meant by that, but that’s what he said.” Who can blame the guy, it’s breezy up there at the top. Visit TheChron for more.

Phil Collins: Well I REMEM*BA*. I REMEM*BAA* the Alamo (3:02)
Before Phil Collins was seeking out his own unique style of music, he was donning a coon-skin cap in the search for Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón. As a young boy he was fascinated by the epic Battle of the Alamo, so much so that he’s studied it in the decades since. At 61, he’s now written the book, The Alamo and Beyond: A Collector’s Journey.

SchauYateKeenBeck, Come Together!
The Texans added the fourth piece to the quarterback machine with veteran, John Beck. Rumor has it he’ll click into place right away having come from the Shanahan Family Franchise out in Maryland. Time will tell. Until then, let’s hope all parts of this temperamental device stay in tip-top. Visit TheChron for more.

Galveston has Seaweed? Indeeeed!
Tourists are confounded by the seaweed, darker sands and brown water. “It’s a little off-putting. Our beach experience has been the panhandle of Florida, where you have the beautiful white sand and emerald beach.” Sounds about like that time I visited Chinatown expecting egg custard and dumplings, only to be surprised when I ran into magical sorcerers and men dressed like Raiden. Lesson learned.  Visit MyFoxHouston for more.

Brothers Don’t Shake Hands, Brothers Gotta Rob and Disgustingly Abuse Women
Colin Smith beat and choked his girlfriend in an effort to obtain a sum of money she’d just received from a court settlement. He then called his brother, Justin, to help in the search. If there were a Tommy Boy for every Paul Barish, we’d be a lot better off. Visit ABC13 for more.
