"We’ve got to play our best game and there’s got to be some things that adversely affect them," Rhoads said candidly about the unbeaten Cowboys. "They’re going to have to turn the ball over.

Pickens warns of $500 crude - Upstream Online
"Listen, that thing is going to fall apart on you over there and it’s coming up fast," Pickens said today on business cable network CNBC in reference to the debate over who would succeed King Abdullah. "They produce 9.7 million barrels a day and he (Abdullah) is 86, 300 pounds, and has diabetes. An actuarial table on him would be in days or weeks."
