It is pretty obvious to Commentary that H-Town At-large council candidate Dick fella is in love with his name and really gets a kick out of the double entendres his name creates.  The latest being his name gets to “stand up to” The Mayor – oh brother. 

He’s now saying that he had nothing to do with his campaign signs that are now illegally all over town. 

Here is from Chron.com:

And how to explain all the illegally placed red Eric Dick signs about town, not just the two on West Gray?

“You go to events and you leave yard signs out for people to take,” Dick said. “I tell them, ’Don’t put them up illegally.’”

Dick said he is not accountable for the actions of every volunteer.

You own it fella.  If someone comes over to volunteer to put up signs for one of my candidates and I hear they’re up on telephone poles, I’m going to know who did it.   I’m even going to know if the opposition took one from a yard of one of our supporters and stuck it by a freeway ramp.  Have a nice time at Muni Court!

Here is more from Chron.com:

“I can’t go around and babysit them all day and night. I do enjoy kind of a weird cult following. I guess that’s from the oddity of my name,” Dick said. “For all I know it’s another campaign.”

Heck, this fella is full of BS!  I’ve never heard of an “Eric” cult following!

I wonder how long he’ll be able to keep it up – awwww!

The top three leaders in career MLB post season games played all wore the Yankee pinstripes.  Name the three players?

Letterman was brutal to Gov. Chris Christie last night.  He compared him to  Jabba the Hut and in his Top Ten List said that Christie couldn’t be Prez because a constitutional amendment said in order to qualify for Prez, you had to be able to see your feet – awww!

The fella that wants to buy the ‘Stros took his case to the Chron E-Board and landed him the lead front page story in today’s Chron.  Check it out. 

Of course MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is busy rooting for his former team the Brewers take on the D-Backs so he don’t have time for us right now.

Commentary doesn’t know what is going on because I don’t ask the front office what is going on because I just don’t think it is any of my business.   I just hope we don’t move into the AL and have to use the dreaded DH because the games would last longer.  I also don’t like some of the stuff that he airs in the piece. 

One of the new TV shows is “Unforgettable” but it isn’t.  In fact it is a pretty cool cop show so check it out.

Check out what happened yesterday with the ‘Stros:

Astros outfielder Jordan Schafer was arrested early Tuesday morning by Tampa, Fla. police and charged with one count of felony possession of marijuana.

The Astros declined comment on the arrest.

According to a police report, Schafer was pulled over in a 2008 Land Rover with an expired Mississippi license plate after pulling up next to an unmarked police vehicle. (Schafer played in the Braves’ minor league system in Mississippi.)

The report said the driver’s and passenger’s side windows were partially down with a “strong odor of marijuana” coming from the vehicle. Schafer was also said in the report to have a joint in his hand. The police conducted a traffic stop for the expired plate and found a clear plastic bag with a leafy substance that tested positive as marijuana.

The 25.9 grams that the police report claims were in the bag exceed the 20-gram cutoff for felony charges rather than misdemeanor. Schafer also, according to the report, had three marijuana peanut butter cups in the car and claimed ownership of all the drugs.

Earlier in the night, Schafer, under his Twitter handle @jordanschafer, tweeted that he was tailgating before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday Night Football game against the Indianapolis Colts.

He should have been at home watching the MLB play-offs to see how it is done.

Derek Jeter (151 games), Jorge Posada (124), and Bernie Williams (121) of course lead the MLB in career post season games played.

Here is the news you never want to hear:

Caney Creek alumnus and Houston Astros prospect Dustin Kellogg died in a car accident early Tuesday morning.

Kellogg, 18, died in a collision with a Walmart 18-wheeler in Conroe.

“He was a Texas kid,” (‘Stros Assistant GM Bobby) Heck said. “He made no bones about wanting to pitch for his hometown team. He was a confident kid. He had no fear about facing hitters who were a cut above what he had faced in high school.”

What else can you say?
