I guess Guv Dude wasn’t in Austin yesterday.  For sure he would have made it down the eight blocks or so to the UT campus wearing one of those flak jackets and his handgun stuck inside of his belt letting parents know that their kids were in good hands. 

Speaking of, Dude has a new commercial on border security.  In the ad he refers to The President as “Barack Obama.”  Dude, show some respect!  He’s “President Barack Obama.”  You’re never going to get meeting if you keep this up.

From an NBC News story yesterday on the latest national poll:

With Election Day exactly five weeks away, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that the battle for control of Congress has tightened, as key Democratic-leaning demographic groups are expressing more enthusiasm about the upcoming midterms.

The NBC/WSJ pollsters attribute the tightening to increased enthusiasm for the upcoming midterms by African Americans (who saw a six-point gain in high interest) and Hispanics (who saw an 11-point gain).

“I don’t think [Democrats] can change the mood,” said (Peter) Hart, the Democratic pollster. “But they can change the turnout.”

The H-Town Mayor had a self inflicted humiliating moment yesterday when she walked in to the City Council Meeting wearing a Cowboys shirt.  She blamed it on talking trash last week and losing a bet.  She learned her lesson I hope.  Maybe next time if she loses a bet on one of our teams, she will send over one of those Goode Company pecan pies because she don’t look too good wearing the silver and blue if you ask me.

Evan Longoria, all star third baseman for the Rays is disappointed because the Rays are in a pennant race and only 12,000 to 14,000 are showing up to watch at their crib.  Of course, their crib ain’t exactly the best place to watch a game. 

The 2008 Yankees of course finished the year at 89-73 in third place in the AL East and didn’t make the playoffs.  2008 was also the last year they played at the Old Yankee Stadium.

‘Thanks to Tim Byrdak serving up a walk off dinger on the first pitch of the bottom of the ninth inning, the Stros watched the corks pop at Cinncy – bummer!
