Don’t forget to attend tomorrow’s Houston Area Latino Summit on Immigration Reform at 9 a.m., at PlazAmericas (old Sharpstown Mall).  For more information you can go to  http://houstonlatinosummit.com.  See you there!

The HISD Board of Trustees held off on making a decision last night on how to go about filling the vacancy.  They’ll meet again next week but they do want candidates to come forward this week and show their battle flags.  It is going to be a very interesting week.

The ATL’s Chipper Jones got hurt Tuesday night trying to field a Hunter Pence ground ball.  He’s out for the season and he could hang up his spikes.  He was the first overall draft pick in 1990 when he was drafted by The ATL.  He’s had a Hall of Fame type career with a .306 career batting average, 436 dingers, 1,491 RBIs, an MVP award, and 6 All Star Game selections.  Who else from that 1990 first round draft class also merits Hall of Fame discussion?

Happy Birthday to The Dean!

Fidel Castro also has a BD today.

Pitcher Mike Mussina of course (who is no longer playing) was 270-153, 2,813 strikeouts, a 3.68 career ERA, 5 Gold Gloves, and with 5 All Star Game selections is worthy of Hall of Fame debate.

The Pirates come in for three this weekend as 10,000 umbrellas are handed out this evening.    You need to come check out our third baseman Chris Johnson who has one of the hottest bats in baseball these days.
