A whole lot of the state’s fish wraps are writing about Guv Dude and how he might do in Wednesday’s debate.  Since he has surged to the top in just about all the national polls the past couple of weeks or so, he really has the most to lose – I think.  Expectations are usually higher for a front runner at this point in the game. 

We still haven’t seen Dude do the Sunday talk show circuit or go one-on-one with the best national TV political reporters.  We still don’t know who the Team Dude spokesperson will be – you know the Robert Gibbs role when The President was running.  

From a story yesterday Dude was asked about supporting a border fence:

Speaking to hundreds of Granite State voters at a private reception, the Texas governor was asked whether he supported a fence along the Mexican border.

"No, I don’t support a fence on the border," he said, while referring to the long border in Texas alone. "The fact is, it’s 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso. Two things: How long you think it would take to build that? And then if you build a 30-foot wall from El Paso to Brownsville, the 35-foot ladder business gets real good."

Looks like Dude stole Da Bell’s border fence ladder line from five years ago.

This MLB team was outscored in a World Serious 55-27 but still managed to win the Serious in seven games.  Who am I talking about? 

Team Dude was officially unveiled last week and aside from that Carney fella who is the Team Leader, most of the folks are from the Lone Star State.  No wonder most of the usual national GOP consultants tend to diss Team Dude.

I’m sure a lot of Lone Star State Dems will tune in to the debate to watch Dude and then email like crazy about all the stuff Dude is saying about things here at home that is not true.

I picked up my copy of the ‘Stros September Magazine at The Yard this past weekend and my pal Drayton’s page/bio was missing.  Pam-In-Charge’s page/bio is still in the magazine.  What’s up with that? 

Brewer fans were out in force at The Yard this past weekend.  Some had on cheese head gear.  Speaking of, yesterday was Dog Day at The Yard and folks brought their dogs.  Bandit sign fella Eric Dick was also there with his supporters wearing Dick law firm and Dick for city council T-shirts but I not going to say they were Dick___ds – got it.

The 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates of course were outscored in the World Serious that fall by the Yankees 55-27 but still prevailed in seven on Bill Mazeroski’s dramatic dinger in the bottom of the ninth.  Maz is celebrating his 75 BD today.

It was a miserable weekend at The Yard as we were swept.  The only good things was Commentary picking up foul ball numero six and giving it to a kid on TV might I add.  Yesterday, Lucas went with us for the first time and his older brother Dante had a ball tossed to him and he gave it to his little brother.

The team is in Pittsburgh today and I wonder if Maz will share some birthday cake with the young players?
