Local for Now

The Chron has a story today on the HERO campaign issue. Here is a line from the article:

Both camps warned that the eyes of the nation are on Houston.

Nah! I don’t think we are their yet. The only national run we have received is the talk about the sermon subpoenas at the first GOP debate.

It could be about missing out on the Super Bowl versus bathrooms and sermon subpoenas.

If the Hotze fella is put out in front for the anti HERO forces, it could be a route for the HERO forces. He is way too polarizing if you ask me.

How many wins did the ‘Stros have last season?

This past weekend I heard about the ‘Stros, the race for mayor, the race for city council, the Uber stuff in San Antonio, the HERO, the Trump, Hillary, Bernie Sanders, the new bus routes, the 100 degree days, and literacy. I didn’t hear anything about the H-Town City Council term limits proposal.

Last season we won 70 games of course. Our record today is 64-54 with 44 games remaining – 22 at home and 22 on the road. We lead the Angels by 3 ½ and the Rangers by 4. We play the Angels 6 more times and the Rangers 7. We also have 3 games to play with the Yankees who lead the AL East and 3 games with the Dodgers who lead the NL West.

Marisol and I were treated to a couple of #ColbyJacks yesterday along with a Jose Altuve walk-off win. You can’t beat that and I like our chances.
