Not Home

I am all for going door to door and identifying voters and getting them out to vote. On the block walk list you get to mark supporter, yard sign, undecided, no support, refused, inaccessible, and not home. You know which box gets the most check marks. Not home.

It is tough to reach a lot of folks by going door to door but you still have to try.

Commentary makes it a point to put a phone number on campaign literature in case a voter wants to ask a question or wants a yard sign. Guess what? We do get calls.

Many of the calls are in Spanish. Some of these folks are asking where the candidates stand on Proposition 1?

The pro-HERO folks have raised more than $3 mil since mid-August. I sure hope they bought some TV ads on Univision and Telemundo. They certainly had the money. If they didn’t, I don’t think that was too smart.

Watching the game last night reminded me of Game 3 of the 2005 World Serious at The Yard. How many innings did we play that night?

The best day of Early Voting in 2015 was yesterday. Mendenhall was number two with 1015 folks showing up.

The Roundtable Ballot is out. You get 5 points if you pick HERO to lose. You get 10 if you pick HERO to win. What about them odds.

Here is part of what the Bill King campaign put out this morning:

I have some good news for you. Another campaign organization polled about 2,000 people that have already voted. Their poll showed that Turner and I are pulling away from the rest of the field!

But please do not let up. Let’s build on this momentum for the run off.

Game 3 of the 2005 World Serious at The Yard lasted 14 innings of course.

This was put out by the team yesterday:

In a continuing effort to bring the most exciting and entertaining events to Houston, Minute Maid Park will host its first-ever cricket match on November 11 at 8:00 PM CT.

Global cricket icons Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne will headline a star-studded lineup of renowned cricket players from around the world in the inaugural “Cricket All-Star Series,” a three-game series in New York City, Houston and Los Angeles. The historic tour marks the first time these legends have played in the U.S., and also renews the famous rivalry between “Master Blaster” Tendulkar and “King of Spin” Warne.

The “Cricket All-Star Series” kicks off on November 7 at Citi Field in New York City, with the second match taking place on November 11 at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The final match in the series will be on November 14 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

The tickets aren’t cheap either.
