The Roundtable General Election Pick’em Pool was released yesterday.  Here’s how you score.  You get more points if you pick an underdog and the dog wins.  For example, if you pick Hunker Down and he wins, you only get 2 points.  If you pick Gordon Quan and he wins, you get 18 points.  A winning Guv Dude pick is worth 2 points and a winning Former H-Town Mayor pick is worth 20 points.  Here some other point matchups if you pick them right:

Ann Harris Bennett 10, Stan Stanart 10.

Loren Jackson 5, Chris Daniels 15.

Trautman 10, Summers 10.

Harris County Republican Judicial Sweep 20, Dem Sweep 50.

It looks like the composers of the ballot think the GOP is going to do better than the Dems in Harris County.  We will see!

Early Voting in Person through ten days yesterday in Harris County was at 288,568 as compared to 513,888 through ten days in 2008.

In 2008, Kingwood was 3.9% of the total (678,312 in person) Early Vote for Harris County.  Through yesterday they were 4.9% (of 288,568).

In 2008, Clear Lake was 3.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday, they were 5.1%.

In 2008, West Gray was 5.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 6.5%.

In 2008, Tracy Gee was 3.1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 3.3%.

In 2008, Acres Home was 3.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 2.6%.

In 2008, Palm Center was 2.3% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1.9%.

In 2008, Ripley was 1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were .8%.

In 2008, Moody Park was 1.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1.2%.

In 2008, HCC was 1.5% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 1%.

In 2008, 126-C in Champions Forest was 4.6% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 5.3%.

In 2008, Ponderosa (Riddle’s district) was 3.1% of total county Early Vote.  Through yesterday they were 2.8%.

Of course, we’re still learning about voting early in person.  At first glance however, it looks like the GOP areas are bit more enthused here in Harris County – at least through the ninth day of Early Voting in Person.

There was a bit of an increase with African American Early Voters but I still don’t have a good feeling about where things are headed.  The local Dem Party better have a kick-arse GOTV program for African American and Latino voters this weekend. 

Who holds the World Serious career dinger record by a pitcher?

One noted political observer who doesn’t have a dog in this year’s hunt says the GOP is going to sweep all the countywide races – ouch!

How come the local GOP candidates have a commercial and Dems don’t?

Pitchers Bob Gibson of San Luis and Dave McNally of B-More each had 2 dingers in World Seriouses.

Pam-In-Charge handed me off a couple of cool ‘Stros trick or treat bags for Dante and Lucas and that’s all I have from The Yard.
