You can probably knock Tea Party Sen. Marco Rubio off of any Prez wannabe list.  The U.S. of A. wants a Prez that has a better understanding of where we’ve been and where we’re going.  When asked about the age of planet Earth here is how he responded:

“I’m not a scientist, man.  I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that’s a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I’m not a scientist. I don’t think I’m qualified to answer a question like that.  At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says.  Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.”

Yabba dabba doo!

The Big Puma says he has four offers including one from the ‘Stros.  Last year he was dinged up and only played in 32 games and only had 2 dingers.  How many times has The Big Puma ever had 40 or more dingers in a season?

Former Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby wrote a letter to incoming freshman Lone Star State legislators.

More on The Big Puma from the Chron:

Asked what it would take for a return to the Astros, Berkman said: “It would have to be a pretty decent offer.

“If I’m going to hit third for a major league team, then obviously there’s a compensation level that accompanies that,” Berkman added. “It’s just a matter whether the Astros would be willing to pay that or not. If they are not, no hard feelings. I just feel like if you are going to do a job, you deserve to be paid somewhere in the ballpark where the job description entails.”

Berkman said he has a “ballpark number” that it would take for him to sign with the Astros but is not ready to discuss it publicly. He played on a one-year, $12 million deal with St. Louis last season.

Big Puma!  You are being asked to bat third for the ‘Stros, not the Yankees!

The Big Puma had 42 dingers in 2002 and 45 dingers in 2006 of course.

JD is still around.
