I’m thinking HoustonChronicle.com won’t last very long.  Heck, it is a hassle for a subscriber like me to navigate through.  I don’t understand the point of having both Chron.com and the new HoustonChronicle.com.  Why do I have to visit both sides to look for one article or E-Board take? Are they even running E-Board takes on Chron.com anyway?  If the Chron isn’t careful, I just might stick to reading the hard copy and avoiding their sites. 

Who was the last closer to win the Cy Young Award?

The Chron E-Board did a take on the deregulation of food trucks here in H-Town.  Here is a taste (no pun intended):

But the regulations do not stop downtown, with mandatory 60-foot spacing between food trucks and a ban on trucks providing their own tables and chairs putting the kibosh on the sort of food truck festivals that have become popular in other cities.

The Greater Houston Restaurant Association has supported these stifling regulations, arguing that loosening them would give food trucks an unfair advantage. So where were downtown restaurants when it came time to serve festival goers? Well, a lot of them were closed. Downtown shuts down on weekends. There were a few vendors to feed the festival, including Good Dog Hot Dogs, which moved operations from its truck to a table for the day.

You can check out the entire take on HoustonChronicle.com if they will let you or if you know the secret password here.

The E-Board also had a take on the Port.

I like “Two and a Half Men” and I actually thought the kid was a good actor for playing a good dumbarse.  It turns out he’s not a good actor but just playing himself – a dumbarse.

Eric Gagne of course of the LA Dodger snagged the NL Cy Young Award in 2003 – hey, he had 55 saves!

Nothing from The Yard except the exec responsible for “Root, Root, Root” has left.
