Commentary was watching the local news this morning and I had to tweet the following:

This morning @KPRC2 traffic reporter @JenniferReyna refers to Richmond Ave as #PotholeHeaven. #HoustonPotholes pic.twitter.com/sx8sDBPevm.

Jennifer Reyna certainly ought to know!

She also tweeted me this response:

Jennifer Reyna @JenniferReyna
@MarcCommentary ⚠️⚠️ #potholes #richmondadisaster

It’s #HoustonPotholes Stupid 2015! (What an idea for a bumper sticker!)

This tweet came out yesterday:

Astros announce Dallas Keuchel as Opening Day starter

This will make it six straight ‘Stro Opening Days with a different starting pitcher – name the six pitchers?

Since we are on the subject of key issues in the race for H-Town Mayor, the Chron’s Teddy Schleifer has a piece today to let us know that the Harris County Sheriff is still running for Mayor but he will let us know when he actually does – got it? Here is from the Teddy take:

He’s (The Sheriff) going to rocket to the top three right away, making it a more contentious fight,” said University of Houston political scientist Brandon Rottinghaus, who sees (Sheriff Adrian) Garcia clawing with (State Rep. Sylvester) Turner and former Congressman Chris Bell in the first tier. “He’s really the kind of candidate that can change the game here.”

Folks know how I feel about handicapping the race at this point because there are still issues to debate, candidate forums to attend, money to raise, and #HoustonPotholes to discover!

There are also some local Dem activists to appease who will not be too happy with the fact that the Sheriff will be punting the Sheriff’s Office over to the GOP. But the Sheriff’s folks know that.

This is Teddy’s piece on the Sheriff’s campaign:

Maybe Teddy or someone else will survey Dem elected officials and Dem party leaders and activists to get their take on handing the Sheriff’s Office to the GOP.

Pere Rose has applied to MLB for reinstatement. He wants back into baseball. He wants to get into the MLB Hall of Fame muy pronto. I don’t give a rat’s arse! I just hope we don’t have to be subjected a full blown media debate on the pros and cons of his case.

Roy Oswalt (2010), Brett Myers (2011), Wandy Rodriguez (2012), Bud Norris (2013), Scott Feldman (2014), and now Dallas Keuchel (2015) will make it six different Opening Day starting pitchers since 2010 of course.

I am OK with Keuchel getting the Opening Day nod.
