The Dean 1, Grub 0!

Leave it up to The Dean to get international headlines.  The Dean didn’t take too kindly to the feast that was served to the late fella that got executed a couple of nights ago.  I have to admit the spread was a bit too much.  I ran into The Dean at The Yard last night and it was apparent that the Blue Bell Ice Cream was the treat that really set The Dean off.  Now there is a mini debate going on about what to serve for the last meal.   Heck, it is even the lead story on the front page of the Chron today.  They even posted a list of famous last meals. 

It turns out the late fella never touched his grub so they threw it all away.  Apparently it is bad luck to eat a dead man’s grub.  I didn’t know that! 

I’m surprised dead grub walking wasn’t hung around Guv Dude’s neck at last night’s debate.

Commentary’s pal, H-Town business leader Greg Compean, was named to the Harris County – Houston Sports Authority this past Wednesday.  Greg is a real sharp fella and we’re going to be hearing a lot from him in the future.   CM James Rodriguez recommended Greg for consideration and the Mayor said A-Okay and appointed Greg.  Way to go Mayor, James and Greg!

“Moneyball” starring Brad Pitt is opening today and it is already getting some Oscar buzz.  What was the last baseball related movie that received a Best Picture nomination?

The 2012 season gets a preview this weekend with fans getting gear with the 2012 season 50th Anniversary logo.  Here is from the ‘Stros website:

On Friday, the first 10,000 fans will receive a 50th Anniversary Cap, presented by Conn’s. The first 10,000 fans on Saturday will receive a 50th Anniversary Blanket from AT&T, and a 50th Anniversary T-shirt will be presented to the first 10,000 fans on Sunday, courtesy of BullShirts.

Dante and Commentary snagged a couple of Insperity Club tickets for a game this weekend so we will be definitely watching a game in style.

“Field of Dreams” of course was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar in 1989.

We’re Number 1 – sort of!  We get the first pick of the 2012 MLB Draft.  Hey we earned it and we deserve it as we continue the last homie!
