Props go to the Spurs for putting it on the Heat in five. So much for “The Decision” getting seven someday.

The Chron has a story today on the financial costs of Guv Dude’s security detail. Some folks want Dude’s campaign to reimburse the state for security detail expenses for his political trips. I have to disagree. We have to accept the fact that the Governor of the State of Texas is a high profile position. Paying for security goes with the territory.

There was a story in yesterday’s Chron Sports Section about the recent success of the ‘Stros and sharing the credit of sorts. The story mentions the 2009 MLB Amateur Player Draft and the ‘Stros passing on Mike Trout – one of the best players in the game today. How many teams passed on Trout that year?

There is also a story today about campaign funds Sen. Wendy Davis is raising outside of the Lone Star State and she really doesn’t want to talk about it. I don’t know why. I don’t think it is that big of a deal.

It is too bad Speaker Boehner and Sens. McCain and Graham are whining about how The President is handling Iraq. These whiners voted for us to go to war with Iraq and The President was opposed. We’ve come a long way from searching for weapons of mass destruction and from Colin Powell’s “you break it, you own it.” I don’t know if Americans give a rat’s arse about Iraq these days. Heck, we may even have to cut a deal with Iran.

Believe it or not, 24 MLB clubs passed on picking Mike Trout, the 25th player taken in the 2009 draft of course.

Those of us watching the ‘Stros yesterday learned about the double switch DH rule. Don’t ask me to ‘splain it to you.

As of this morning we have a better record than seven MLB clubs. We have the day off then go to D.C. for two.
